The Rose Garden

If you know me, I exercise ALOT. Sometimes it gets boring and strenuous but this rose garden gives me something to look forward to on my runs. I cant express to you how gorgeous this place is, its almost magical in its own little way. This morning it was more beautiful than normal because of the way the light hit the roses. It is the simplistic beauty that can really change your day for the better and help keep you happy and hopeful. What's your favorite place?

Baked Apple Quinoa


Baked Apple Quinoa 
1 c quinoa
1/4 c almond milk
1/3 c apple cider 
1tbs cinnamon
2 stevia packets
1 diced honey crisp apple
1/4 c walnuts or sliced almonds
1 tbs cocoa powder (optional, I like chocolate everything)
2 tbs PB2, or natural peanut butter (optional)
1 egg white
1 tsp baking soda

* Mix all ingredients in a bowl then pour mixture into a baking dish don't forget to spray the dish or you'll be angry, bake at 350 degrees or until apples are soft and the quinoa resembles rice pudding. Serve with peanut butter on top or choose to go a lil unhealthy and top it with some pumpkin ice cream!

Vegan? No problem, don't add the egg white, add 2 tbs of apple sauce instead!

Oxblood & Skulls

Ahh I love the color oxblood, recently I found a even deeper love for oxblood nail polish and dead animal skulls, not kidding. There's something about the western feel they give a room for decoration. Hold a raccoon skull with oxblood nails, you've got yourself one fierce fall trend right there my freind.

Prints & Patterns

Printed jeans - Target
Boots - Amavo Boutique

Prints and Patterns, its time to kick your fall style up a notch! Pair plaid with polka dots or stripes, don't be afraid to mix colors that don't "match". Printed skinny jeans are huge this season. Pair them with bold shoes such as red boots or deep colored pumps. What ever prints you wear, wear them with confidence,  your look is unique and you look incredible!

Release your Inner Goddess

Why do we get so caught up in work and money, so much that at the end of the day instead of being proud of ourselves for what we accomplished we feel stressed out and exhausted? I am under this spell as well hence the reason I wanted to post this. Ladies its time to release your inner goddess, have fun! Stay up later than your usual bed time, have a drink or to during the week after that stressful meeting, pamper yourself in shiny things and put on your favorite heels just to go to the market. RELAX and feel beautiful, you deserve it!

Ethereal Autumn

It's time for FUR! Fo fur of course!! Here I am showing off my favorite Fur vest with a sequin skirt, perfect for a fall night out with a shirt underneath of course.  Don't be afraid to wear a hat with your outfit. Hats are the perfect accessory to spice up any look! Statement necklaces are a must this season, try a simple chain with a bold pendant or a string of pearls!
