Fall 2017 Wishlist!

I love this illustration by evelyn_henson on Instagram!
Fall perfection! 

This is what is on my Fall 2017 Wishlist! 
1. As seen on bellestarblue on Instagram
{around $140ish WITH standard anti-reflective prescription lenses!}
first spotted on afashionnerd on Instagram
7. Monaco Ankle Booties from Cleo Madison- A new sponsored item for BTLG! 
I am excited to style these beauties! {retail- $37}
{$35- purchased months ago in preparation for fall!}
 so many colors but I love the black & red ones! {$20}

Now that it is officially fall, 
time to recap and report on my Summer 2017 Bucket List
which was pretty much a total fail...

Okay so the Summer 2017 Bucket List included: 
Nope, did not accomplish any of the NYC Wishlist...

2. Walk on the bridge in Lawrence
Nope, down the road and still did not accomplish... 
3. Redeem rest of hair gift certificate for product
I TRIED to do this but the woman who owns the salon would not let me get product 
with the $50 remaining on my gift certificate,
 she said it was "only for service" and I do not want any service 
since my last absolutely TERRIBLE haircut.
I definitely do.
4. GET A DAMN JOB!
Kinda?!
& hopefully something amazing comes from my Mó Eyewear adventures

& I did get three items off my Summer 2017 Wishlist
Pilcro Hyphen Leopard Shorts at Anthropologie {when they went on sale for $20!}
Victoria Beckham for Target - Sticker Book {when they went on sale for $1}

But if I reflect in an anti-bucket list, 
I did get to:

So I guess it was a pretty damn awesome summer, 
no matter what the Summer 2017 Bucket List recap says!

I am ready for Fall, 
looking forward to more adventures!

Cherry Grove Farm Tour!

Last month we went on a little excursion down the road from our house 
to go on a tour of Cherry Grove Farm
We have been to Cherry Grove a few times in the past,
 but never done an official tour





What I Wore: glasses- c/o Glasseslit, top + leggings- Walmart, boots- JCrew {via Ebay} 



I thought this was so cool, 
on this sustainable farm the cows get to choose from this "buffet" of elements, minerals and nutrients so they can select what they are craving and what they need. 

Cherry Grove is over 400 miles of sustainable farm land in the middle of Lawrenceville, NJ.
On the farm they have cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, goats, sheep, rabbits, 
and a bunch of farm kitties! 
{Also have fox, deer, and the occasional coyote!}
They rotate the animals on the farm to keep the ecosystems in balance and thriving. 

It was awesome to have a personal tour where we get to see the farm first hand
and hear about their sustainable farming techniques.
I love exploring with my hubby 
{and checking out his booty on the walk, not going to lie... I am definitely Tina incarnate...}

The tour usually reserved in advanced and requires a $10 donation. 
Totally worth it, especially for the sunset over the farm!

If you look closely into the sun you can see one of their baby cows, 
he is honestly a perfect picture example of a black and white cow,
hanging out with his mommy! 


Okay, I am not one to shame.
I mean I never dress appropriately for anything.
I just have a tendency to wear whatever I want, no matter the occasion. 
I was quite proud that I was prepared for this farm tour
mainly due to the fact that "the rules" for a tour state:
"These farm tours will take you past the fences and into the fields, pastures, cow paths, and woodlands. You may encounter mud, burrs, insects, and other acts of nature. 
Proper footwear and clothing are a must."

Apparently a woman we were on the tour with 
interpreted "proper footwear" as open toed platform wedges... 
{where she needed to be practically carried across large puddles}

She also asked a lot of business, budgeting, and profit questions which was very strange. 
To the point where I asked Charlie how we ended up on this business meeting walk...
Really weird.
But made me look/feel like a farm pro.

After our farm tour with fresh cow pop on our boots,
we stopped by Triumph Brewing in Princeton to try their freshly tapped Petite Framboise:

👁 ♥ this poster:

Happy we stopped by for the Petite Framboise,
I loved it! 

We ended up running into an old friend from Princeton 
and having a surprise late night!

Navy + Orange + Scalloped

Started the day off right with a breakfast of champions,
sunny side eggs with paprika on English muffins.
👌

Apparently I am the only one ready for the day...
These babies are always so sleepy!


Still loving these marigolds from our garden all over the house,
especially in the living room, I am loving the combo of navy and orange:

 Even brought the combo into today's outfit! 


What I Wore: glasses- Bonlook, lips- Soap & Glory Gloss Stick in "Nudist", top- boutique in South Carolina, shorts- Anthropologie, flats- Cat & Jack from Target



I first talked about mó last month,
 and I have continued to do some work for them in an internship-ish style.
Hoping this is going to be an amazing opportunity in the future! 🤞

I recently ordered some sample stickers for  from StickerMule,
you can get 10 custom stickers for only $9, which includes shipping!
A great idea, you can see and feel the stickers before ordering the large quantity you need.
You can also use THIS LINK for $10 off your first order.
I love StickerMule, great customer service, great stickers, super fast shipping!

I love how they came out, 
immediately added one to my computer.
This picture totally describes my life right now:

Back to the orange, navy obsession for a minute, 
the bag is actually FUNCTIONAL! 
How cool is that?! 
I need this is a big girls size, so convenient!
