I'm BACK! Heath Bar Triffle

With a empty bottle of white wine by my side and Eminem on full blast, I’ve made my way back into the kitchen for the first time in over 6 months. Where have I been? On the  runaway, emotional rollercoaster of life. Heartbreak and a busy concert season had consumed me this summer and admittedly, left me a bit of a mess. Early fall brought new hopes and new challenges as my career blossomed and new friendships were formed. But with new responsibilities, I once again found myself losing sight of the things I once loved to do in my spare time and questioning the person I was becoming. After some deep self-reflection and valuable guidance from reliable friends, I’ve decided to finally get back to me and the things I once loved. I realized, the best thing about me, is that I’m me and not anyone else. I need to stay to true to my passions in order to become the best possible version of myself If I truly want to shine in life. 

That being said, I’m crafting, painting and baking again! What better way to kick it off than with a little Thanksgiving day treat.

The nights are getting cooler and rain is moving in, but I'm not ready to let summer end! Even though fall is right around the corner and Halloween decor is out in every store, I've been trying to hold on to every ounce of warmer weather that I can. And that means adding plenty of pastel jewels into my wardrobe! Mixing light color jewelry with brighter, bolder apparel is just my style and the perfect way to transition my clothes into fall without breaking the bank. I'm obsessed with my summery bauble necklace from Charming Charlie combined with the chic, grey earth tones of this "Faith" bracelet. I wear it as the constant reminder that Hope and Faith will take me wear I need to go in this life.

I've always believe that accessories are what make the outfit. A shiny new necklace and some sparkling bling can make any old and dull clothing perk right up and look fresh! This summer, I've been counting my pennies in anticipation of a move this fall. Instead of splurging on brand new outfits, I've been finding ways to snag clearance jewelry to brighten up my old looks. Here are some of my favorite pieces, all affordable too!
