Happy Friday friends!

My week was pretty low key and I kind of liked it! Time management has become a focus on mine lately and I’m trying to prioritize during this holiday season. I’m working on being more organized and efficient so I’ll have time to enjoy everything I want to.  (Ps. here’s what I thought to be a fascinating article on a woman who tracks time and productivity)

I’m actually off to Buffalo for the weekend to explore more of J’s hometown. It’s definitely an area of New York I haven’t spent much time in, but lucky for me two of my cousins are currently living there too. I want to spend as much time as possible with loved ones this season.


I picked up this Topshop sweater at Nordstrom Rack this summer and couldn’t wait to wear it. Now that the temps have finally dropped, it’s been my go to for an easy outfit.

I love these bp heels (similar) that I bought last fall. Grey really does go with anything!

New Food Hack

I’m always up for a new food hack that will make my life easier and not leave me frustrated with a mess!

I love pomegranate seeds and I usually buy them already packaged. I found this incredibly easy and effective way to cut a pomegranate fruit so that I wasn’t intimidated buying a whole one.

Delicious Places to Eat & Drink in Seattle

Every time I see this picture I just want to be sipping on that margarita in the bottom right hand corner! If you missed my where to eat and drink in Seattle post, it’s right here in all it’s deliciousness!

Obsessed with Pink Hues

Ok so last Friday I had no intention of walking out of Nordstrom Rack with all pink items in my cart, but I’m not mad about it lol. I got home and realized whoa everything, including a children’s birthday party gift, was pink. I think pale pink is a color that will work well this holiday season and through out the spring. At least that’s how I’m justifying it lol!



I picked up a few of these RxBars at Trader Joes this week since I’ve seen a few bloggers recommend them. I like how minimally processed they are if i’m in need for a quick healthy snack or breakfast. The mixed berry was good but I’m excited to try the mint chocolate chip. Any other flavors I should try?!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    I have been wanting to give those RX bars a try but have been leary. I guess now I should! Love that outfit – best colors ever. And yes, girl, pink hues are my current jam too! Have a terrific weekend.

    I find I am really drawn to the pale pinks lately too; I love pink and gray mixed together.

    I like that sweater a lot & the boots are cute too. I might have to check out those bars. I eat bars a lot between meals.

    I love your OOTW (that lavender sweater! those booties!) and all of your pink items! I love pastels but need to get over my fear of wearing them in the fall/winter!
