It’s been a while since I’ve shared an update on my marathon training. After a long few months of summer running, I finally started to feel like I was making progress in late July. I PR’d my 5k, which was a pretty big surprise. You can read that race recap here!
I’ve been curious about trying Hello Fresh for a while now. I’ve told y’all before that I am a terrible cook, and usually end up eating the same bland things for lunches and dinner. I also like the idea of having the right amount of ingredients for a meal, without having a ton of waste to throw away. Right now, I find it hard to use up perishable ingredients when I’m just cooking for myself.
I realized from my “loving” pinterest board, that I have been pinning tons of images with the color terra cotta in it lately. The color has been popular for the last year or so, but as we transition from summer to fall, it’s such a pretty color to add to your wardrobe or home!
The warmth looks so pretty in interiors, and makes plants and other cool tones pop. I also found some really pretty stationary that feels so new and sophisticated, instead of the same old blush pinks.
For apparel this color can bring a lot of flattering warmth. I love pairing terra cotta with more neutral pieces for a pre-fall outfit. It’s also a beautiful color for lipstick or blush as we transition to fall!

The final step for my kitchen remodel was to give all of the cupboards a sprayed coat of varnish. Because the cupboard doors and drawers have to be sprayed outside (due to the mess and fumes), we had to wait until the summer months to do this part! This time, we were not only doing the cupboards that were refinished before, but giving all of the cupboards in the kitchen a fresh new coat.
The benefits of using a spray gun to varnish is that it gives a beautiful, even coat of finish. It also can make the project go so much faster than if you were to use a brush to put it on. The risk with spray varnishing (and with any varnishing), is that things like humidity, dust, or anything on the wood surface can cause a mess!
Buying nice home decor is enough of a challenge, but sometimes styling it once you get it home can be even harder.

One of my biggest life passions is deal hunting to find amazing clothing at prices that I can actually afford.
