4 SWEET & SALTY SNACKS FOR FALL

 You're probably sick of me telling you that Fall is my favorite season.
I really don't care.
Sorry.
I mean.
Fall is so short in the Midwest, that I think gushing about it for a few goods weeks is fair, right?

Here are my 4 favorite fall treats- 2 sweet, 2 salty:


Healthy, Sweet. No sugar added. You're welcome:

This is a snack. And a breakfast. And a dessert. It's THAT good.


I eat popcorn pretty much daily, and this is hands down my favorite recipe. 

NO not sweet like a PSL- I mean spices like paprika, cayenne, and garlic powder. Mmm-mm.


What are your favorite Fall snacks?

6 GILDED GIFTS TO GET YOURSELF!

Hi friends!

Today is all about YOU! Yup. Today is all about treating yo'self- today specifically with some gilded goodies.
Some of these gifts are just around $20- and I KNOW each and every one of you drop more than that on an average trip to Target...so no BS about "not having enough spare cash" mmmkay?

Here's what I've chosen for myself....er. YOU!


Fortune Cookie Box: Sometimes the perfect gift to give yourself is one that can hold all the trinkets & treasures you've treated yourself to in the past. And have you ever seen one that's cuter than this cookie?

Gold Lipstick Mug: If you're more of a practical self-gift-giver like I am - this mug is not only useful, but cheeky and perfectly ladylike.


Devil is in the Details Notebook: Anyone else out there a Type-A list maker? If so, why not at least write to do lists in style?


Chevron Round Box: Okay, so maybe you're not into the Fortune Cookie Box- then go for this one instead. Perfect to hold rings on your dresser or earrings on your bedside table!

Golden Chevron Glasses: While we're on a chevron kick here, let's talk about these glasses. If you have a barcart and are looking to add some shine to it- these are your best bet!

Gold Monogram or Animal Wine Stopper: Got glasses for your barcart? Then these wine/bottle stoppers might be just for you. Plus, if you REALLY love yourself, one's a monogram, so you can just stare at the first letter of your first (or last) name all day erryday.

-----
If you're still refusing to buy yourself something, then buy one of these and send it my way, okay?
I'll take those Chevron Glasses, please and thank you!

LIGHTHOUSES + APPLE PICKING

You know, normally I do these posts on Mondays---but since coming back from vacation I am a little behind...mmmkay?

Here's what's good lately:

1. Since it's finally not crazy humid out, my curls are no longer pure frizz, so that's delightful!



2. There is nothing, I repeat NOTHING better than spending time at Lambeau. Even in the pouring rain.
Watching the Packers beat the Vikings Thursday was just too good to be true!

3. Michael and I took a mini vacation to Door County over the weekend- and despite some on and off rain, it was the perfect fall excursion. Hanging out on Lake Michigan, enjoying the fall colors, apple picking- if you ever head over to Door County and want some tips, be sure to send me an email!

4. Speaking of apple picking- if you like HoneyCrisp apples- you HAVE to go pick your own. $1.70/pound vs $4/pound in stores. Plus, then you can take some artsy as heck orchard pictures ;-)

What's been good with you lately?
Anyone else doing any cliche Fall activities lately?

FALL 2014 MUST-HAVE BAGS

Oh Fall.
I love you something fierce.

Every fall I always gravitate towards buying 3 things: scarves, riding boots, and a great bag.
Here are the top 12 that have caught my eye...

1. CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL: Ooooh these bags. I can't decide whether to love the saddle or the oxblood more... 

2.  LOEFFLER RANDALL: These bags made the must-have list because I am absolutely in love with the envelope shape. And that black + black clasps? Beyond sophisticated.

3. REBECCA MINKOFF: The Amorous Satchel made this list because it has some seriously excellent fall color options. Charcoal + Black Cherry + Petrol? One of each, please.

4. FOLEY + CORINNA: The size & shape of the Frame Satchel is exactly perfect for stashing a scarf if the weather gets cool. I'll take that Whiskey colored one in a heartbeat!


Now I want to hear from YOU!
Which of these excellent bags would you love for Fall?
The Foley + Corinna in Whiskey is definitely at the top of my list.

TAKE A SIP: GRAPEFRUIT SIPPER

See, when I posted my last drink recipe on this here blog I figured it would be the last uber-fruity drink I'd post for a while, since Fall was here.

Welp.
It was 80 degrees this weekend, and to me, that just ain't hot cider weather.
Hence this recipe for a super easy grapefruit sipper!
 
What you need to make it happen:
- Fresh Squeezed red grapefruit juice (of course store bought works too!)
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka (I used Svedka)
- 1/2 ounce triple sec
- Splash lemon juice
- Mint for garnish

How to make it happen:
Step 1: Combine all ingredients.
Step 2: Pour over ice & garnish.
Step 3; Enjoy!

Anyone else having unseasonably warm weather in their area?
Thanks Wisconsin, for being so gorgeous!

xo, lp

CANDY CORN SEASON

Happy Monday you wonderful people!

Hope you all had a stellar weekend. It was crazy hot here- 80 degrees - perfect for Badger Gameday tailgating...and then hiding inside Sunday to watch the Packers game!

Here's what's been good lately:

Oy. Last week was... a week. It was one of those weeks that meant kicking off your shoes and going RIGHT out to the balcony with some wine. Ya feel me?

Like I said - this weekend was a great weekend for tailgating for the Badger game- and I got to bust out my favorite DIY Badger shoes from a trip to the Rose Bowl a few years ago:

 YOU GUYS IT'S CANDY CORN SEASON!
Yessssssssssss.

Tomorrow's recipe is tart & sweet and great for weekends that happen to be 80 degrees (in fall!):

Also later this week: Fall's Must-Have handbags!

What was good about your weekend, my friends?
Shoutout to any other Packers fans out there!!!

xo, lp
