Pumpkin Patch Pickers

Hello Darling,

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are enjoying it with family and friends. Just wanted to share with you a few photos from a fun adventure my family and I had at Southern Hill Farms located in Clermont, Florida. It was a gorgeous day! There were carnival rides for the kids, food trucks (you could get a variety of wines, beers, and seafood), frozen drinks (my favorite was apple cider), jars of honey, music and games to enjoy.  I recommend going if any of you are in town for any of their events coming up.

Thanks for reading!

Until we meet again,

Tidbits and Musings

Hello Darling,

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a refreshing weekend and are ready for the new week. (I know sometimes you can have those days you just don't want to get out of bed, and have to deal with other people. I know I do!) For this Tuesday's Tidbits and Musings I am sharing a few quotes that grabbed my attention from the book, "How to Live like a Lady" by Sarah Tomczak.

"The attribute of a great lady may still be found in the rule of the four Ss: Sincerity, Simplicity, Sympathy, and Serenity."   - Emily Post 
"Allow ladylike manners and style to shine through in everything that you do."
"Consider the implications of everything you say before you say it--it might come back to you when you least expect it."
"... how you feel on the inside dictates how you look on the outside."
"French women know that an air of mystery, a certain je ne se quoi, is a healthy thing." 
"... the most essential lesson you'll learn is that you should make whomever you are talking to feel at ease."

If you haven't already read this book, I recommend it highly. It is a quick read with great tips and it is a book that can last with you for years to come.

I hope you enjoyed this week's Tidbits and Musings!

Until we meet again, 

P.S.: What are your favorite books  to enjoy throughout the week?

Staying Warm and Cozy in J Crew Factory

Hello Darling,

The weather is finally beginning to get a little chilly down here in Florida and there are 
no shortages of long sleeves and jeans being worn to keep us warm against the blowing winds. With the cold weather in full swing, there are so many sales out there right now with comfy sweaters and coats to add to your closet.

Below, in honor of the cooler weather, there are a few items I spotted on the J Crew Factory website that I thought were just super cute and perfect to keep warm in, and they are having an amazing sale with some items being under $100, and others being under $50. Perfect for any girl shopping on a budget!

tops: 1, 2, 3, 4
bottoms: 5, 6
accessories: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
coats: 12

I hope this gives you a few ideas for your own wardrobe!

Until we meet again, 

P.S.: What are your favorite pieces for the cooler weather?

Friday Finds: Autumn is in the Details

Hello Darlings,

As we all gear up for a lovely Thanksgiving with family and friends,
the holiday spirit of thanks and joyfulness settles in.
Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons, and here at the blog it will
come to no surprise how much I love it!
Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope you enjoy it.

Below, I am sharing a few finds that caught my eye on Pinterest.  

Decorate your home inside and outside with gourds, leaves, pumpkins, nuts and other seasonal materials for beautiful fall DIY displays.

Mushrooms have to be one of my favorite foods and they make for some of the best side dishes like these roasted mushrooms in a browned butter, garlic and thyme sauce!
