Oh hello November!! It's nice to see you again! I can't believe it's already time to enjoy the last bits of Fall and start preparing for the holidays. Do you have any fun plans for the holiday season?  I can't wait to bake cookies, decorate our home, spend time with friends and family and enjoy some holiday shopping!

However, before I get ahead of myself and into the holidays, I want to make sure to enjoy one of my favorite seasons, Fall! There is still officially a month and a half of the fall season and I want to do all I can to breath in the crisp autumn air, dance through leaf piles and truly enjoy sweater weather and boots season.

I am particularly a fan of the fall season for the fashion. Sweaters, boots, denim and layers all season long for the win please! This fall I am particularly loving three trends that I just happened to already have in my closet and you might too! If not, I've got a few suggestions for easy additions to your wardrobe.

It's so easy to fall into autumn with these 3 trends!

How I Beat Jetlag With a Spa Day at Penelope and the Beauty Bar

Monday, October 8, 2018

Thank you Penelope and the Beauty Bar for partnering on this post and graciously providing a RENEW treatment and spa day. All thoughts are my own!

How I Beat Jetlag With a Spa Day at Penelope and the Beauty Bar

I spent much of my summer and now into fall traveling. Between weddings on Eastern Standard Time and our honeymoon in Amsterdam and Greece, my internal clock was a mess. I couldn't tell 3am from 9pm or 1pm from 11pm and every time I boarded a plane crossing time zones, jet lag would hit me once more.

I've always been one to struggle with time zone changes and I absolutely hate that. Which is why I was so excited to discover what I have deemed the perfect way to beat jet lag (disclaimer: this worked for me, but I am by no means an expert on jet lag and this is not a professional medical opinion.)

How I Beat Jetlag With a Spa Day at Penelope and the Beauty Bar

Following our honeymoon in Greece, I was invited by Penelope and the Beauty Bar to enjoy a spa day with a full relaxing RENEW treatment that included a full body exfoliation, followed by a soothing body wrap and concluding with a customized European facial.

Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of Summer 2018? I can hardly believe it! It seems like just yesterday my hubby and I were departing for our honeymoon in the Greek Islands as summer began. Now, Autumnal equinox is on the horizon and there is just one sunset and one sunrise to mark the start of Fall.

For one last fleeting Summer adventure I headed out for a Pacific Northwest walk in the woods with JaM Cellars. Spending time in nature is always on my #SummerBucketList. I find such inspiration away from the cement world because, really, nature is the original designer and the perfect spot for creativity.

Are you a fan of going to the movies? I have such a love for a going to see films at classic movie theaters. The Admiral Theatre in West Seattle was recently remodeled and is the perfect spot for catching new flicks; while enjoying bags of salty, butter popcorn and old candy favorites.

My one dilemma when I go to the movies, other than what kind of candy I want to get, is what to wear. I often get so cold in the movies, anyone else?! Also, I always worry about the what I might find on me once I take my seat (I see you kid who smashed your gum and stuck that chocolate candy to your seat when you left!)

When I spotted this dress as part of the recent Tomas Maier x Uniqlo collaboration, I knew it was the perfect dress for catching a flick and added it immediately to my shopping cart and closet.
