Sweet Tooth: Pumpkin Muffins

First

I hope everyone had the most wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent the weekend sleeping in, hiking, sitting by the fire, and last but certainly not least, eating. I also found some time to whip up my favorite Fall treat, pumpkin muffins.

I followed this recipe with the exception of the nutmeg and cloves, which I did not have. Even without those ingredients, they turned out golden brown and delicious. Best part? My whole apartment smelled of pumpkins and baked goods for days.

Farm Style

Maybe it’s due to my unhealthy obsession with HGTV’s Texas-based series, Fixer Upper, but I am in love with farm style sinks. I repeat: in love.

Below are just a few of my favorite farm style sinks that I’ve come across on Pinterest.

I’ll be taking the rest of the week off to enjoy Thanksgiving with friends and family. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday and I’ll see you back here on November 30th.

Thanksgiving Roundup

Thanksgiving Roundup Collage

I’ve done several Thanksgiving posts in my day, and re-reading them always makes me nostalgic (and in dire need of stuffing, cornbread, and pumpkin pie if we’re being real). This year, I wanted to round up all of my past Thanksgiving posts into one collage that will hopefully bring tons of inspiration to the table for you (literally and figuratively, of course). Enjoy!

Welcoming Winter

First Image

At the dawn of each season, I love to change little things here and there in my apartment that actually make a big impact. After all, it just seems kind of wrong to have floral pillows and throws out in the living room when the weather is gloomy and cold.

With Winter just around the corner, here’s how I’m getting my house ready:

White flowers. I absolutely love Winter white, whether that’s in the form of roses or an all-white get up.

Teas and nature scents. It’s a must to have tons of teas and hot chocolate in the house during Winter time. I love flavors like cinnamon and vanilla for the Holiday season. I also like to incorporate different candle scents during the colder months – this candle from Coqui Coqui is my favorite!

Pumpkins. While this is sort of a Fall thing, I love keeping pumpkins in the house during Winter as well.

Thicker moisturizers. My skin gets super dry in the colder months so I’m preparing in advance with coconut body lotion.

Rustic vases. No need for bright, cheerful vases during the colder months. Instead, I like to place my plants in more rustic holders, such as this wooden one from BloomThat.
