Everyone knows I have a long running obsession with rose gold. I think if its copper, rose gold, or marble I instantly want it. But there’s one shimmery, metallic that everyone can get behind: Gold. I do love gold whether its simple like a sweater or cute like sprinkles on Christmas cookies. Whether it’s being worn or just around the house, gold adds a little bit of excitement to everything. It’s just sparkly but chic and classic at the same time.
When it comes to gold, I’m more about the home decor and home goods than anything else. I am obsessed with these gold mixing bowls from Target, and I’m 100% positive my kitchen needs them ASAP. Sorry current vintage mixing bowls, you’re moment is over. I love this bar cart and flatware because they are just little accents rather than something overwhelming. A gold bar cart stands out as an accent piece in any room. Besides who doesn’t love a good bar cart?

I was too young to fully understand what my parents were saying when they told me I was gonna be a big sister. I think once I figured it out the family photos of me looking less than impressed holding my new baby sister said it all. But really my sister and I were the only kids around growing up in my family for the most part so we got into a lot of trouble together. We may have had disagreements about who “borrowed” (stole) what from who and she may have been my guinea pig too many times (okay so it was real make up not play make up, mom. Sorry), but I always had her back. No one was ever going to tell her the truth about Santa or let her take the fall for breaking something she never even touched. That’s what makes sisters awesome sometimes.
I think technically there’s only so many weeks of fall left making this post relatively useless, but I’m not really bothering to pay attention to that. Arizona really only has about two real seasons anyway. Since there are still plenty of fall time left, I put together somewhat of a fall shop. It’s filled with things I really love right now and things that just are great to have. It’s like Oprah’s Favorite Things only I’m not Oprah, and this isn’t a special segment on GMA.
Growing up Halloween was a huge deal in my house. As a kid my sister and I would get free rein to decorate whatever we wanted. I still remember these incredibly 1980s felt, orange pumpkins with silly expressions we hung on all the windows (Oh wow I found them online: here). Most of our decorations ended up being those buckets from McDonald’s and the dress up chicken nuggets because they were fun. We never really carved pumpkins except for the day before Halloween (or even on Halloween) because of my parents policy on making messes. Pumpkin carving is by far one of the messiest activities for children and pumpkin guts are disgusting. As an adult it’s still really fun to decorate for Halloween. I still don’t really do much in the way of pumpkins. I’ll display them but carving just isn’t my thing. Not only is it messy, it’s also dangerous for a clumsy person such as myself. I love Target sells fake, designed pumpkins and pumpkin art for me to stick on them instead.
Sorry for the sparse posting as of late. I’m lacking a bit of motivation and inspiration right now. I’m also working so incredibly hard on so many things all at once. I’m a bit of an overachiever I’ll admit. Most of the things I’m being bogged down by are almost over, so hopefully now I’ll be able to post more regularly.
That said this weekend I’ll be attending a sip and see for my friend’s new baby. Apparently sip and sees are a real thing and not just something seen on the Real Housewives franchise. While I find the concept utterly baffling, I guess that’s a thing I will be doing. Hopefully with far less drama than an episode of the Real Housewives of whatever. I also hope it doesn’t begin to stir any sort of baby fever within me because babies are the most fun when they aren’t yours and you get to pass them back. But one thing is for sure, getting older sucks when everyone reminds you where you should be in life, but just aren’t.
Talk about being a Debbie Downer. Instead enjoy some fun things from around the internet, and have a great weekend.

Keeping up with all of the cool things on the internet can be tough. There are so many things worth bookmarking from clothes I want to buy, music I want to listen to, and random things I insist I’ll revisit later when I get a free second. Truth is I probably only revisit those things when cleaning out my bookmarks further on down the road.
I’m not entirely sure this post actually solves that problem, but it does give me the opportunity to share some of the things I really like this week with whoever is reading this. So enjoy!
Modern by Dwell Magazine for Target has finally hit store shelves and I couldn’t be more excited. Sorry to that Target employee who had to witness me gasping for air when I finally saw the items in person.
What I love about this collection is how it is an affordable, elegant, and modern solution to home furniture and decor. Modern design and it’s principles are my favorite and I’ve studied them for quite a while. This collection is perfect because the pieces can stand alone as individual pieces or as a whole harmonious collective unit. They are stylish, simple, and just plain beautiful to look at. Each piece has been innovatively designed to convey a sleek style while serving its function. The pieces breathe new life into concepts we see every day with indoor and outdoor living spaces. The metal outdoor sofas, chairs, and bar stools have decidedly abnormal, eye-catching silhouette that can be covered with padding for a more comfortable feel. The collection has some interesting pieces that give off a 1970s vibe including some rugs and the cocktail glasses. There are many mixed materials in the collection.
The collection itself is appealing to a wide variety of lifestyles, and even if you aren’t a modern design lover, there is likely to be something eye-catching.
