Happyyy September, aka Pumpkin Spice season! I think I can safely bust out all the fall decor now ( I mean they already exploded over my home last week!) and take out my Pumpkin Spice Rae Dunn mug!
So this week, its been a whirlwind. A little recap from the Mint Candy world – my daughter started day care this week! Needless to say she did way better than her mama ( I couldnt sleep the whole night before her first day this monday and sobbed like a baby all morning leading up to her drop off, and then for a good hour after!) and is all settled in! She is only going three days a week and will be at home the other two days, which makes it a good balance for everyone! But this mama is hustlin’ all five days given that its fall (almost fall) and I have some substantive work deadlines (read: school deadlines) including internship applications, a conference in November and several dissertation related things to get off my plate. So this fall is all about the hustle!
In other news this week.. GAME OF THRONES!! If you do not watch this show.. YOU ARE MISSING OUT! I cannot rave more about this show other than say that literally is it the best written and created show I have watched to date (breaking bad and stranger things are pretty close to it).. but literally the MOST EPIC season finale of all time.. AM I RIGHT, GoT fans?!?! I won’t share any more details because I hate spoilers myself.. but go, NOW and watch it!
So this week, I wanted to share some new favourites with you that I am absolutely in LOVE with!
First up are these amazing, soft turkish towels that I am using as throws because they are humungous!! They are from an Etsy Shop called Pestamel Style and I got these at a steal of a price!! The towels are still 50% off so grab yours for some fun decorating! Plus… they actually work great as towels too!! I just love snuggling in mine with a mug of tea and a Game of Thrones Episode!
Next.. I am absolutely in love with these bright cobalt blue vintage books I picked up fro Value Village this past week! They add the perfect pop of colour to our muted mint fall console and just make my heart do a weird dance. Anyone have a thing for vintage books?!? My top suggestion for getting vintage books is to check out your local thrift store and LOOK BENEATH THE BOOK COVERS! The covers for these three books were totally NOT blue and I took them off the minute I got out that store!
Last but not least, another current favourite right now, is this outfit right here! How cute is this muted mint (you see a theme happening here?!?) ruffle sleeve, distressed tee from American Eagle?! I am smitten! Its a bit on the shorter side, but looks FAB paired with a dark high waisted jean like these black jeggings (which feel like your skin! so soft and hold in the darned mom pouch)! I have linked all the items for you below the photo <3
So there you have it! My favourites from this week! Have a lovely long weekend and I will see you back here on Monday! Also, leave me a comment or come say hello on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook.
