How To Pamper Yourself After Work This Fall



I love Fall! It is such a beautiful season and the temperatures are absolutely perfect.  It's a season of change but sometimes change can be hard on a person. It's hard to get to enjoy the season as much as you would like when you work. With Daylight Savings Time change coming up, it's getting darker earlier which leaves less time to enjoy the Fall evenings once you're home from work. Some people even suffer with seasonal depression when Fall arrives. They also can suffer with several allergies and dry cracked skin when cooler temperatures set in. So even though Fall is such a wonderful season, one must take steps to Pamper themself for their well-being. Here are some ways to Pamper Yourself After Work This Fall.


  1. Go for a walk or run before it gets dark- I love walking on cool Fall evenings. There is just something about the fresh crisp air and the exercise from a walk that makes me feel so much better. 
  2. Read a Book- My favorite way to relax is curling up with a blanket and a good book. 
  3. Drink Hot Drinks- I love a good hot cup of coffee, cappuccino, or hot cocoa. I love sitting on the porch listening to the sounds of nature with a hot drink in my hand. 
  4. Take Vitamins- Vitamin C for Immunity and Magnesium for Bone and Muscle Health. Magnesium is also great for depression and anxiety. It has worked wonders for me. In fact, Magnesium has many great benefits. 
  5. Hydrate your body and skin- We all know that we need to drink plenty of Water, which I always do. However, we also need to hydrate our skin. Lotion up! Use plenty of lotion every day to keep from getting dry cracked skin. 
  6. Do more of what you love- Engage in your favorite hobbies, watch your favorite Halloween or Christmas movies, go to your favorite places. Have a good laugh and just be happy.
  7. Eat your favorite comfort foods- I love to eat soups and chilis during the Fall. I also love to bake my favorite desserts, preferably anything pumpkin. Just be sure to incorporate more healthy foods in your diet. 
  8. Pamper yourself at home- Paint your nails, try a new makeup look or take a relaxing hot bath while burning your favorite fall scented candles.
  9. Sit around a fire- I love sitting by our firepit, while roasting marshmallows and making s'mores with my little family. It's just so relaxing.
  10. Be around family and friends- It's ok to have your alone time, but be sure to be sociable and be around others. There is nothing better than a good conversation with someone you love or care about.

Make time to pamper yourself, get plenty of rest after work, be healthy, be happy and have a great Fall!

High Five For Friday



Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday link-up hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of TeaBecky @ BYBMG   and myself. We're glad you're here! High Five for Friday is where we come together to share five highlights or five favorite things from the past week each Friday.

1) Last weekend we attended our second Fall Festival for the year. We went to the annual Kentucky Apple Festival. It has always been my favorite. I look forward to going to it every year. The food is always so delicious. There are many vendors and rides for children so there is a little something for everyone to enjoy. Raylan loves attending the festival. The rides are his favorite!

2) Raylan and I have been having quite a few Halloween and Popcorn Movie Nights this week. He is just like me, he loves the holidays.

3) Fall weather has finally arrived in Kentucky this week and I am  one happy girl! Now I can enjoy being outdoors without being miserable. 

4) My dad surprised me with some Pumpkin Donuts after work yesterday and they were so delicious. He knows my love for all things Pumpkin Spice is real. It was the perfect pick me up after a long day of work.

5) Now that it is October, I have really started wearing my Fall Fashion. I have broke out all of my Hocus Pocus attire and I'm loving this Pumpkin Spice Outfit that I wore.

Printable Fall Scavenger Hunt


Fall is my favorite time of the year! Everything is so beautiful during the Fall season and the weather is absolutely perfect! In fact, my favorite time to get out in nature is during Fall.  I enjoy getting out with my son and exploring. I'm always looking for something new and fun for us to do together and make plenty of memories. This Printable Fall Scavenger Hunt  is a fun way to encourage your child to get outdoors and explore while learning all about the Fall season.

This Scavenger Hunt is so simple to use. You just need to print it off then head outside and search for the items on the list. It's a great way to spend the day with your child as you see the fall foliage and check each item off on the list. Walk around the neighborhood or go for a drive to check off your list. You can make it even more fun for your child or children by taking photos, doing it as a group activity or even by making it a contest. Be sure to reward them with a prize or treat after they have their list all checked off.

Pumpkin Spice Outfit








Even though it is October, it still feels like Summer here in Eastern Ky. I am more than ready for Fall weather and for Fall Fashion. With it being October, I couldn't wait any longer to start wearing some of my favorite fashion pieces. My friend from church blessed me with this adorable Kentucky Pumpkin Tee for my birthday. It was such a fitting gift for me because of my love for all things Fall and Pumpkin Spice. I paired this tee with dark jeans with hints of browns and golds for my accessories to give the outfit an even more Fallish look. These hot Kentucky days can't ruin my Fall vibe. It may be too hot for actual boots but these peep toe booties are the perfect transition from Summer to Fall.  What Fall Fashion Trends are you loving this year? I'm loving dark jeans and lots of browns, burgundy and gold colors. Have you started on your Fall wardrobe yet?

High Five For Friday


Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday link-up hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of TeaBecky @ BYBMG   and myself. We're glad you're here! High Five for Friday is where we come together to share five highlights or five favorite things from the past week each Friday.

1) On Saturday, Raylan raced his very first Power Wheels race at one of Justin's racing events. He had a blast and so did we watching him. All of the kids who participated won a shirt, bracelet, stickers, hot wheels and a treat bag. I love it when events involve the children and let them have fun.

2) Raylan and I have been on Fall break this week and it has been a much needed break.  We've slept in and have had tons of fun this week. I've enjoyed having him home with me and I dread it when he goes back to school Monday.

3) We have such beautiful weather this week so my little family has made the best of it. We have been outside every day. We have went on walks, rode the power wheels, sat by a camp fire,  roasted marshmallows and went to the park. It has been a great week!

4) Raylan picked his Halloween costume out this week. He has decided to be a Vampire for Trick or Treat. My child seriously loves Halloween. He is so excited for it!

5) I'm also so every excited that it is now October. I can't wait for Pumpkin Patches, Haunted Houses, Hocus Pocus and Trick or Treat this month. Let's also not leave out the beautiful scenery and cooler weather. October is by far my favorite month!
