Fall Essentials.

I love summer don’t get me wrong, but I am the girl who enjoys her pumpkin spice flavours, fall colours, cozy sweaters and warm blankets. Here are some of my fall essentials so far…

So I’ve started to use a new foundation and serum combination (review to come) but I think I’m in love. It is the Estée Lauder serum – Idealist Pore Minimizing and the Estée Lauder foundation – Double Wear. This combination is mind blowing.

Of course candles are on the list of fall essentials. I’m a huge fan of any scent most of the year round but especially during fall – lavender and mint, marshmallow, and just got a new creme brûlée scent!

Sweater weather. Two key words, with not much explanation needed.

Food wise, classic grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup. It is warm and comforting and all those great childhood feelings wrapped into a meal.

Another go-to is having a girls night in, loving netflix and a good early 2000’s show ‘Scrubs’. It is a hospital comedy – really amusing.

I also have been enjoying journalling more and writing down whatever comes to mind. This could mean to-do lists, blog ideas or just how my day went. This with meditation is very stress relieving and calming.

Who doesn’t love to feel good?


Game Plan: Dinner for Two

Now I do like cooking and it’s a great idea for date night, but it can get expensive. So I’m also searching for budget friendly ideas. My first tip would to be to go shopping in your fridge and pantry first. Then decide what to make. 

Tonight I’m attempting beef lasagna roll ups that are easy and cheap

 Out of all of this I just needed cream cheese and some pasta sauce – so about $20 CAD max. Not to shabby for dinner that will come with left overs. 

Game plan:

 For newbies like me a step by step is great. After the meal is in the oven you just wait until the noodles are cooked and the sauce bubbles – simple!
And yes, it turned out good enough to have seconds.
