Be Leaf It- Thanksgiving Style

Be leaf me or not, but I have been one busy bee. I have not wrote a blog post in over a month and there is  a V good reason for that!

Life has been a little crazy and I plan on writing a separate blog post for that! So  until then I am sharing with you my favorite Fall style dress.

This rust color corduroy overall dress is to cutest thing I think I have owned all season.

You can shop this outfit here!

This weekend is the Sephora’s beauty insider event- I feel like it came so quickly?! I ran to Sephora to pick up some goodies that have been on my list. I thought I would share some things I’m buying from the sale and some things that are still on my wishlist!  Did you know you could use your code a couple different ways? You can purchase in the store as many times as you please but only once online. The sale ends tomorrow, Monday- September 3rd!


Boy oh boy I have had my eyes on this Phyto-Retinol Serum by Biossance which is a natural alternative to retinol and I love that you can use it on your under-eye without drying it out. So many great products that are on my wish list. Lately, I have been focusing on my dark dry, and puffy under eyes. I am all about these eye patches to help depuff and moisturize that area. I am going to try the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-tox Hydra Gel Eye Patches!

Hair-wise- I can’t wait to get my hands on the Olaplex– I have heard such great things about this hair mask. Since having blonde hair it gets very dry and especially after getting it colored, I like a good mask! This product will be in my basket. Take a look at my top picks below!

I would love to hear what is on your wishlist!

Why we ditched our old mattress and went with Leesa

Who has slept on their bed for way to long? ME!

Who has put off getting a new bed for over 2 years now? ME!

Shopping let alone for a bed sucks, but I knew when we walked into West Elm it was for a reason- It was when we met Leesa. Have you heard of the brand? Leesa is a bed in a box company and for every 10th bed sold they donate one. And every time they sell a bed they plant a tree for every bed sold.

Not only when you buy a bed do you get to go home and get a good night sleep- you sleep better knowing you helped someone out!

I don’t know who or what I love more now? Our bed or Andrew? okay okay I am kidding- kind of  😉

We ended up going with the luxury style Sapira brand of Leesa because with my chronic back issues I needed something firm and supportive. Their original Leesa is great as well but not as firm (again which I needed).

It took  10 days for my body to really adjust to the new mattress. Lessa lets you try the mattress in your own home for 100 nights (risk-free!)  with free shipping! The bed is much more firm than my older bed where I used to sleep on such a broken in bed where each side dipped and Andrew and I would roll into the middle by the morning.

Luther was a little confused on what we were doing when we opened the bed- you guys the process of unboxing one of these is UNREAL. See the video below!

Does anyone else have a super jealous dog? Luther is so funny when it comes to Andrew and I being funny and messing around. Literally thinks we are hurting one another- ha!

Now that we have a good bed I am so excited to put the finishing touches on our room.

I am over the moon about this new mattress and love waking up feeling so refreshed!
