This week in Georgia, we have gotten a little sneak peek into the cool crisp weather of the upcoming season and it has made me completely switch gears to Fall! I usually do my "Weekly Five" blog posts a bit different from today's because today's is all about, you guessed it, Fall! The coming months will be full of yummy scents, decadent desserts, cozy nights, and layers of swearers and scarves! I am so excited for this season, it is my favorite time of year. I can't wait to enjoy it with all of the people I love, including you!
It was so hard narrowing my long list of pumpkin favorites to just one recipe! I thought I would change it up from the normal pumpkin pie or spiced latte and bring to you Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles, yum! With the creaminess of the cheesecake, the crunch of the cookie and lightness of the whipped topping, this combination will leave
you in pumpkin bliss! Get the recipehere!
This fall it is all about not just layering pieces of clothing, but layering textures. Like the picture above, mixing it up creates a look that is so chic and done right! Let's just stop and take a look at all of the different textures featured above. There are faux leather pants, velvet ankle boots, a denim button up, a knit sweater and a faux fur jacket. Separately you may think that there is no way these would work together, but it surely works and I am loving it!
During this time of year, as the leaves are changing and there is a small crisp breeze in the air, I become very thankful to live in such a beautiful state, Georgia. One of my favorite places in Georgia is when you go up to the mountains. They are great any time of year, but there is something unique and special about going in September and October that will completely change you. I have never experienced anything like it, come visit and you will know exactly what I am talking about!
About two or three years ago, my family started this tradition where we make chili on Halloween Night. Every time I think of Halloween now, I think of cuddling up with a bowl of warm chili, watching some scary movie classics and sipping on some hot chocolate! This is a tradition I will be carrying with me throughout the years and won't go a single Halloween without it! Get a great homemade original chili recipe here.
I have been LOVING bright bold lips lately! It is so chic for summer and brands have come out with some amazing vivid colors! My favorite to wear is NYX's Haute Melon. It is the perfect coral color!
My love for Brandy started with these shorts which are sadly not available anymore, at least online! After falling head over heels for these shorts, I checked out her store. There are not even words to describe how amazing this store is! You will just have to go take a look for yourself!
Oh, Kristen Wigg, you are constantly leaving me in tears! She is my favorite female comedian of all time. She completely stole my heart with her "Surprise Party" skit on SNL. If you have not seen Bridesmaids yet, stop what you are doing right now and rent it. You will not be sorry!
I have known about The Civil Wars for a while now, but I just recently rediscovered my love for them! They have a sound and chemistry like no one else in the music business. They are breathtaking together. It is pure magic.
Okay, I know, every weekly five I have done has had an animal for my favorite smile. but really? can you blame me?! This picture makes me especially happy because this puppy looks so much like my two dogs so this makes me extremely happy!
Oh, Summer Days, they are a perfect excuse to throw your hair up in a messy bun and still look put together
when running out the door and heading to the pool or beach! This has been my
go to hair style lately! I am loving it!
If you have never heard of Wildfox Couture, go check them out now! They have amazing vintage style
clothes with a modern twist! They are a tad pricey but completely worth the money! They are know as being the
California "cool kids" when it comes to designing, especially for the young Hollywood scene!
Here is a little nostalgia for you guys to look back on! This is the Harry Potter
cast having some fun on set! I love watching these!
Who would have known that this Twilight star would have such a stunning voice! Nikki Reed and
her husband, Paul McDonald just released an EP together called " The Best Part". It is a must by
album! Their voices together are a perfect, beautiful match made in heaven!
Okay, so I may have a tad bit of an obsession with elephants, especially with the little babies!
But this picture made my obsession grow so much more! I'm in love! Why can't it be
legal to have a baby elephant as a pet?!
It took me a while to sway from my neutral and darker fall/winter polish colors, but I am finally in Spring mode! Im in love with bright colors from blues to greens to pinks to yellows! I love it all! My personal favorite polish color of the moment is Lime Crime's Parfait Day, it is the perfect barbie pink.
If you have never heard of Kate Spade, you are truly missing out! Her style is elegant and chic with bright colors anywhere she can add them! I just started my Kate Spade collection a week ago by purchasing a beautiful iPad case which you will soon see in my upcoming "What's In My Bag Video"!
Oh my gosh, this completely amazed me! Just watch it, trust me!
Oh Lana darling, not only is she absolutely stunning but her music is breathtaking. She has a voice that will bring you back to years before your time and seem to form memories that are impossible because you weren't there. Her voice is soothing and has a special quality to it that makes everything bad and toxic in life wash away leaving life beautiful and flawless.
This quickly became my favorite movie of all time. It was visually stunning and left you wishing your were in the movie dancing the night away at one of Gatsby's lavish parties. This movie was a remake done absolutely right. It did not disappoint one little bit! I highly recommend checking it out!
I have been so in love with pointed toe high heels lately! Especially with how many amazing styles there are now, just like the ones in the picture above! They can make any outfit look gorgeous and classic. You can even pair them with some destroyed denim shorts and a over sized pocket tee.

Oh my gosh! This is so funny! I don't know why it took me so long to find this. I also don't know why they don't have a full time show together. I was laughing the entire time. And they are actually surprisingly really great together!
Truth is, there was a time when I didn't really care for Justin. My favorite movie of all time is the Social Network. After seeing him play, Sean Parker, I automatically stopped liking him because his character was a jerk! But after hearing his new album I have grown to love him again! Keep doing what you're doing JT!
I mean really? How CUTE is this picture! I saw this in this month's In Style Magazine and fell in love! Not only because Diane Von Furstenberg is coming to Gap but this little girl is absolutely precious!
Almond shape nails are a huge trend that got a big start with celebrities all over LA including our girl Rihanna, Rita Ora, The Kardashians and more! They look so chic and classy. I recently started wearing mine in an almond shape and I don't think I will ever go back to square! LOVE!
Oh gosh, where do I start?! I recently took a trip to Lenox Mall in Atlanta, Georgia and came across a Henri Bendel store. I have heard about this designer through youtube alot but never really looked into it. When I walked in the store I was in heaven! It is now and probably will forever be my favorite designer. Below are just a few examples of what they have in store!
I never thought I would think a guy pretending to be animals, could be THIS funny! I laughed so hard I was crying! Genius! The Rhino one killed me!
A couple of months ago I came across Imagine Dragons and thought they were good, only hearing the songs "It's Time" and "Radioactive". I recently gave a few of their others songs a try when I added their Pandora station and they are amazing! They are very unique and have a sound like no band I have heard before. They are great to listen to while getting ready in the morning!
It is no secret that I love dogs! My two dogs are the little loves of my life! When I came across this picture I had to post it for you guys! How CUTE?! So precious!
