Happy Wednesday, y’all. I know I have been a little MIA here on the blog. I don’t know if you are like me or not, but it just seems that our world is in such turmoil. With the fires, shootings, hurricanes, etc., life has kind of been getting me down lately. I think we just have to remember to keep praying and remembering that this world is not our home. Anyways, today I wanted to share an outfit that I shot with my photographer a week ago. It’s pretty obvious that I’m obsessed with plaid + vests AGAIN this fall ;) I just can’t help myself.

This was a fun photo shoot, because I got to take photos downtown. I’ve lived in the same town my entire life, so it’s fun to get to show off my town in this way. There’s just something to be said about small towns…

It just so happens that I’m obsessed with plaid every fall/winter, and this season is no exception. The fun added detail to this shirt is that it has a hood! You never know when you need to cover up your perfectly styled hair and protect it from rain sprinkles/snow flurries. I paired this outfit with some tassel earrings for a fun touch!

Thanks for reading y’all & I hope you’re liking my outfits.

Happy Tuesday! Can we all agree that we are excited that fall is finally here? It’s rainy outside today and the temp is supposed to drop 20 degrees. Bring on all the scarves and booties ;) One thing that I look forward to every single fall is FOOTBALL! If you follow me on social media, you know that I’m a die-hard football fan. I live for this sport y’all! I decided I would put together a fun party idea centering around Tony’s Pizza. If you head to your local Harps food store, run straight to the pizza aisle to grab a Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Pizza of your choice.

One of my claims to fame (lol) is the fact that I had a very unique high school mascot. I was a Harrison Goblin from kindergarten through high school graduation. You read that right…a GOBLIN. For those who didn’t go to my school, you might not think it’s that cool. However, I enjoyed having a unique mascot that no one else had. It also made Halloween games extra fun ;) Today I wanted to share how I chose to throw a pre-game pizza party with Tony’s.

Before we get started, I wanted to give you a chance to win with the Tony’s Sweepstakes:

#WinWithTonysPizza #Sweepstakes – AWG (9/19 to 10/17)

When I think pizza, I think salad. To me, these two go together like salt & pepper. I’m somewhat of a cheese pizza snob, because I have one major requirement: 100% real cheese. Thankfully, Tony’s has come through for me with 100% real mozzarella cheese. YUM! And let’s talk about crust…I love the authentic pizzeria recipe from Tony’s! It’s not too thick but not too thin. #WinWithTonysPizza

Back to the salad, I LOVE caesar salad. I honestly think I could eat it daily for a month and never get tired of it. In my opinion, the key to not getting tired of salad is fun, exciting toppings. I decided to pair my yummy Tony’s pizza with a caesar salad bar.

Step 1: Wash & chop a head of romaine lettuce. Cut up into salad-size pieces. Place in a bowl with a paper towel to drain.

Step 2: Cut cashews into small pieces and place in a bowl.

Step 3: Empty a small bag of sunflower seeds into a bowl.

Step 4: Wash & peel 3 large carrots. Shred into pieces & place into a bowl.

Step 5: Empty contents of a bottle of caesar dressing into a bowl.

Step 6: Shred a block of parmesan & place into a bowl.

Step 7: Empty contents of a bag of croutons into a bowl.

Step 8: Add spoons to all bowls.

Step 9: Place the topping bowls around the large lettuce bowl.

For toppings, I had several options: cashews, parmesan cheese, sunflower seeds, carrots, croutons, and dressing. I really like to add a crunch to my salad, so that’s why I chose a variety of toppings. I like putting them in individual bowls so that everyone can choose how to top their salad. I really like the variety of toppings as well, because this works for both adults and children.

This salad paired perfectly with the Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza! I know this meal will be the perfect pre-game dinner that will feed a crowd. Be sure to have a big jug of iced tea around, too.

So this fall when you’re looking to feed the pre-game crowds in your hometown, be sure to grab Tony’s pizzas for an affordable, go-to gameday treat!

(PS: To make the “football field” on your table, grab a green plastic tablecloth & tape off “yard lines” with white masking tape)

I hope you enjoy football season as much as I do! Have a great week.

Happy Wednesday. Before I start, I wanted to say that my blog posts got put on hold after the horrible tragedy in Las Vegas. I could not bring myself to post for a couple of days, because I was just in shock. Join me in praying for the victims & their families. I just don’t understand what our world is coming to.

*This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.*

I’m totally on a Texas-sized travel hangover from my trip to Dallas this weekend. I can’t wait to tell you all about it for the next couple of weeks on “Travel Tuesday” here on the blog, so stay tuned! I found the BEST nail salon I’ve ever been to and picked up some goodies at Bendel’s so you’ll want to read along. BUT for today, I wanted to share my fall skin prep routine with Colleen Rothschild.

Colleen Rothschild was a new skincare brand to me, but let me tell you…I’m in love. I have promised only to share products that I use and believe in here on the blog, so this is one of those brands. I have been using these products for 2 weeks now, and I have gotten so many compliments on the brightness of my skin.

I think it’s important to remember that not everyone has the same skincare needs. Some of us are oily, some of us are dry, and some of us (me) are combination. My #1 skin concern is my dark spots. I have lots of freckles from when I was younger and didn’t always wear sunscreen. I am making a conscious effort to lighten these spots to create a blank canvas for makeup preparation. There are several color changing/balancing products out there, but I wanted to get to the root of the problem in diminishing the spots.Through a combination of dermaplane and my Colleen Rothschild skincare, I’m well on my way.

With fall just around the corner, I wanted to share my skincare routine using Colleen Rothschild. I was ecstatic when the brand wanted to work with me, because I believe in the vision of this company. The product line is NOT overwhelming which is a plus. Here’s my fall routine:

{Step 1}: Radiant Cleansing Balm

LOVE LOVE this cleansing balm. I have sensitive skin, so I have to be sure not to exfoliate with harsh products. I use this product to help me get rid of makeup. It works extremely well at getting rid of the most stubborn eye makeup!

{Step 2}: Balancing Gel Cleanser

If I could describe this cleanser in one word, it would be heavenly! The feel of this cleanser is so soft! In my opinion, it’s hard to find a cleanser that cleans deep when it doesn’t contain exfoliating beads. However, I was pleasantly surprised how bright and fresh my skin felt after using this cleanser. I use this twice daily!

{Step 3}: Age Renewal Super Serum **FAVE**

If you only buy one Colleen Rothschild product, it should be THIS ONE! Hands down my favorite product from this line is this serum. It feels like butter and softens skin in just one use. I apply this serum before my moisturizer. My number one skin concern for fall/winter is hydration. This product will boost hydration, and I feel as if it helps the moisturizer work better. I like to think of it as a “moisturizer prep” product ;)

{Step 4}: Sheer Renewal Cream (morning)

I know it can be confusing how to choose a moisturizer in general. Then when you’re trying to decide what to use morning vs. night, it gets even more complicated. Colleen Rothschild has really simplified the process. The sheer renewal cream is my go-to for morning, because it’s not super thick. It gets the moisturizing job done and is sheer enough to wear under makeup.

 OR {Step 4}: Extreme Recovery Cream (night)

If you want to prevent dry skin before winter, grab this extreme recovery cream. It’s a thicker formula, so I apply this each night to a clean face. It’s pretty much like magic while I sleep. I wake up in the morning to fresh skin, but it’s not oily!

Other Masks/Lotions

If you saw my nightstand, you would know that I HAVE to have lotion. I put lotion on my feet and hands before bed every single night. I cannot stand dry feet touching my sheets. So I was excited to grab the nourishing body lotion. I’m somewhat of a lotion snob, because I’m very picky. I want lotion to coat my skin; however, I don’t want it to be greasy! I’m happy to report that this product does just that!

You know I’m a huge football fan, so I thought I’d have a little fun with this clarifying detox mask. I apply it all over my face and let dry for 10 minutes. Trust me, I’ve never met a mask I didn’t like. The clarifying properties in this mask really dug deep into my pores and cleared my blackheads. Use this mask a couple of times per week!

Once weekly, I’ve been using the dual enzyme polish. This gives more exfoliation to your skin to get rid of impurities that have built up during the week. My skin is stressed, so I know that this polish helps to relax and calm my skin. Leave on for 10 minutes then rub in circular motions to get the most out of this product. It’s safe for my sensitive skin which I love!
