This year I decided it was time to switch up my fall decor and add some subtle modern touches.  I dressed up some clay jack o’ lanterns with snake plants to add some greenery to our front doorsteps.  I usually just hang a plain grapevine wreath but because of the snake plants and our fiddle leaf fig tree, I felt like I needed to spruce up my wreath a bit and add some pops of color to tie it all together.  I began searching everywhere hoping that something would catch my eye, but I just couldn’t find anything I loved.  Finally, I came across this wreath on the Terrain website.  It was perfect but it was a little out of my price range, so I decided that I would make one myself.

Here is what you will need to make this wreath:

Once you have all of your materials gathered, start arranging the dried pumpinos how you want them on top of the wreath.  Using the hot glue gun, and start gluing them onto the wreath.  Be careful when doing this, the glue can be extremely hot and will easily burn you! Trust me I know this from experience!

After adding a few pumpinos, start gluing the moss by tucking it around the sides.  Keep doing this until you have achieved the look you want for your wreath.  I choose to stop the process leaving it with some grapevine showing at the top but you can do this all the way around too!

Here is my finished product!  I love the way it looks with the pumpkins and the snake plants.  I also added some black lanterns around to give some extra spookiness and lighting.

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
