New Adventures

Well, hello there!

It’s almost October, and you know what that means! Halloween is approaching. Everyone is gearing up, including getting out their cute autumnal clothes and chugging those dreaded Pumpkin Spice Lattes (can we say white gurl pumpkin spice wasted?).

We’re having a warm September here in the Bay Area, and I’ve been wishing the weather would cool off just a big and let autumn actually be autumnal. Nevertheless, I have a lot of knitting to be done, cute sweaters to buy, and books to curl up with.

I’ve been through a few changes this year, and those will be discussed over at Finding Love In Myself (my blog that deals with mental health, self care, etc.). But, I want to fill you in on the fun things that I plan on filling the rest of my year with!

Plan of Attack:

  • Knit beanies & ear warmers for friends and family, including a West Ham beanie for Dad.
  • Research DIY skincare and learn how to make my own bath bombs, bath salts, and other herbal bath time remedies.
  • Carve out 30-60 minutes a day for reading with a pot of yummy tea.
  • Share my crafty progress on blog, YouTube, and Instagram.

Y’all with me? Who wants to help keep me accountable?

Ciao for now, my lovelies! Enjoy your week.

Homebody Love

After visiting an old college friend yesterday, I was reminded how much she loves to craft as well as keep a welcoming home. She put a humble, homebody bug in my brain and I spent a moment on Pinterest today finding fun craft ideas.


A few days ago, I found these glasses bottles at Urban Outfitters for $1.99 each. I love the colors! I don’t know what I’m going to do with them or if I should even do anything with them. I might fill them with beads and buttons for crafting…
Share any ideas you may have! And, if you have any fun crafts you like to do on your day off, I’d love to hear.
