Fitness Wishlist

I don't know about you, but I feel like every time around this year I feel inspired to touch up everything in my life. I recently went through my workout clothing and got rid of anything that 1. didn't make me feel amazing or 2. was worn down and needed to go. Getting rid of clothes means one thing: buying new ones! Today I am sharing with you my current fitness wish list!

Let me know in the comments where you like to get your fitness apparel!

Yellow Autumn

Happy Monday! Can you believe it is already the 19th of October?! When did that happen..?? I had a lovely fall break that was full of spending time with friends and getting homework done. Today it's back to class and back to work and I'm excited to get things moving!

I wore this outfit yesterday because it was the perfect crisp fall day. Tyler and I went to German Village for lunch and coffee and got to explore a bit. After that we went back to his house to watch The Walking Dead on Netflix because I'm only on season 3! Do any of y'all watch the show?!

I hope you're having a lovely Monday!

This week started with midterms and ended with fall break. Fall is definitely in full swing here in Columbus and today I'm sharing with you lots of fall related favorites! 

Favorite Outfit:  I've been pinning fall fashion like crazy and I think this outfit is my definition of fall. Of course, bean boots are a must!

Favorite Recipe: This week I bought a crock pot and knew I needed to make a warm hardy soup to break it in! This Mexican inspired soup was amazing and so simple to make!

Favorite Cocktail: Two words: APPLE SANGRIA. Um, yes please. I bought all of the ingredients today and cannot wait to make it tomorrow night since a handful of our friends are coming into town! This cocktail is going to be a huge hit!! 

Favorite DIY: Okay how BEAUTIFUL are these pumpkins! This year, I won't be getting any pumpkins sadly (dang college life) but I'm lusting over the beauty of these.

What To Do In Columbus Ohio

So as many of you know, I recently moved to Columbus. I came here for school, but I obviously get to explore the city and try out so many new shop and restaurants. Toady I'm sharing with you a daily guide of what you should do if you ever find yourself in Columbus! (Ever watch the Travel Show "The Layover"? I've got you covered for a Layover in Columbus!

Breakfast & Coffee: Fox in The Snow cafe. Get the egg sandwhich, trust me.

Tour THE Ohio State University (O-H!)

Mid Day Juice Pick Me Up: Alchemy Cafe. They not only have juice, but amazing food too!

Must See Mall: Easton Town Center. My favorite mall any time of the year. It's half indoor and half outdoor with amazing stores for everyone. 

Lunch: Northstar Cafe is so delish! Their salads and cocktails are my fav!

Places To See In German Village: German Village is an absolutely must see in Columbus. There is so much history in the area. One of my favorite things to do is wander around gawking at all the beautiful homes and little shops. A few must see places are The Book Loft, Staufs Coffee, The Original Max & Ermas, Schmidt's

Dinner: I would definitely recommend staying in German Village and eating at Max & Ermas or Schmidt's! 

Dessert: Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream is an absolute must.. yum!

Early Fall

Every year around this time I feel so inspired to play with my wardrobe. I recently got these red Hunter Boots that I have been eying since last year this time. They were a birthday gift and I am so happy I finally have my hands on them!! I have a black pair but I feel like the red just makes any outfit look so wonderful and a bit more unique! Hunter Boots are seriously my favorite. Sure they're a rain boot, but I feel like I can get away with them even when it's sunny outside! I think these red ones will be perfect for fall, winter and spring! 

Anyone else having a huge warm up this week!? Today it's 75 degrees and sunny. I'm over it already and want my 65 degree weather back! 

I hope you're having a lovely week.. we're half way to the weekend ;)
