Fab Finds of the season

Hello, Lovelies! I hope your fall is beautiful wherever you are. ‘Thought I would share some of my loves as of late.

First, some inspiring books:

* I found this little gem via a post here.












I love Allison’s honest style of writing and her message is a good one:

Life is short. Be BRAVE.

I believe This guy is in Allison’s writing community.











I’ve posted about his work before. His latest is good and I recommend it.

*Loving this site because I think I’m ready to tackle my achy belly once and for all. I’ve cut dairy for 20 years now and red meat & pork for five…ready to feel better. I’m asking for this cookbook for Christmas.








I made a connection with a sweet blog reader this week who has embraced the SCD diet due to her IBS. It struck a chord with me and I will look forward to watching her progress as I venture into my own experiment.

For the body:

* My new favorite face foundation.








I don’t usually wear any, but this is light and covers so nicely. My hair stylist recommended it and her skin always looks so lovely.

* Loving the boots and skinny jeans look…especially with yummy, mushy sweaters.













I’ve been wearing out my own black riding boots and it’s hard not to wear them every day!

* I’m intrigued by vegetables masquerading as starches. I think I might be game to give these a try.


For the soul:

*It’s all things Airstream around here lately…I will explain more later, but there’s news about ours. This is such a lovely scene, isn’t it? Oh…and those BEDS! Be still my heart.

How cute is this blog about a couple on the move?

* Speaking of Riveted Living...I’m obsessed with Airstream art as well.


This painter is such a talent…love the colors! Leah Giberson…a name I shall be watching.

* Loving this podcast on my weekend runs.



They are just the sweetest people with such a great message. I’ve learned a lot and they make me laugh.



For the family:

*Watching Wonder Woman episodes via Netflix.


















Okay…okay…so they’re REALLY bad..but oh, so good! Ha! I feel like a kid spinning around making firecracker noises all over again. My kids are obsessed with it. How in the world did she keep that strapless number up when she ran? And we’re not even talking about the control top hose she’s rockin’ while she’s putting away bad guys. Yikes…in a good way.

* Four words…Pandora Michael Jackson station.


It is the best cleaning music ever…especially when you watch your kids doing the dance moves they think were in your generation (Helloooo?! The running man wasn’t until the 90’s) My youngest was the initiator on this one and it surprised me. She says “Black and White” is the ultimate running song. I have to agree.

I showed her the video (pretty cutting-edge for the 80’s, don’t you think?) and she was impressed…especially the morphing thing at the end. You owe it to yourself to step back in time and just watch that part 😉

* * *

Well…those are some things I’m loving on this season. We’re actually doing some serious Netflix-watching today as my youngest is home sick. I’d so rather take my kids’ places when they’re ill. Seeing them listless and red-faced isn’t fun at all. I did, however, get a little couch time with her today…and that doesn’t happen very often. I’m just hoping my class didn’t eat my sub alive. First one of the year! Praying for a good report.

Happy week, Lovelies!

    Hi Lara. Thanks for the call out about my blog! I really appreciate it and am glad to be a small part of encouraging you to try some diet changes. You will love the Against All Grains cookbook if you are lucky enough to get it for Christmas. And if not, you know where to find it! I will have a blog post later this week about zucchini noodles so stay tuned. Thanks again for including me on your top hits list. Laura
