Here Comes Autumn with Calypso St. Barth

Calypso St Barth - cashmereChambray Dress // In Honor of DesignChambraysweater dress

We reached the 60’s in the evenings this week, and although the highs were in the 80’s, so naturally everyone in the south deemed it fall weather. On cue the boots were out. I readily admit my midwest roots have been affected by the southern weather over the years and 60 degrees in the morning merits a sweater;)

Had fun teaming up with Calypso St. Barth to style some of their new fall pieces! Favorite aspect of the chambray dress is how easy it is. You feel like your outfit is complete with a long necklace and a pair of booties. The dress does all the work! And the sweater dress….easily something I will wear throughout the next few seasons. Maybe I won’t even take it off because it is so soft.

Should we vote on fall just continuing through winter and skipping it altogether? We’ll come back to that question come January:)

Make your own Essential Oil Lip Scrub

I am learning to work essential oils through different aspects of our day to day life. I have a lot to learn though so I was relieved when I found out my friend Casey Wiegand has a site dedicated to all things essential oils! There are some excellent ideas on the blog, she hosts classes, and shares recipe ideas on her new Essential Oils instagram account. I am in!

This is a very simple DIY you can do to help keep you lips from getting too dry, and naturally working in beneficial oils. Just by smelling peppermint it is a tension relief and can help with headaches (I get them easily!), so I use Peppermint for this recipe. However, you can substitute with your favorites like lemon, tangerine, etc.

Essential Oil Lip Scrub
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/4 C. raw or turbo sugar
1 Tablespoon Vitamin E Oil (optional)
2-4 drops essential oil (I suggest wholesale prices)

Mix all ingredients and store in an air tight container.
Rub into lips and wipe off with a washcloth.
Finish with lip balm of choice.

Enjoy your super soft smackers! You can learn the benefits of each oil through Casey’s magazine which is a super helpful visual guide.

Shop Scoop: Pen and Paint

you are enough pen and paintPen & Paint

I have so much admiration for pen and ink artists. It takes time and patience and so much creativity. I couldn’t stop staring at Lindsay’s work. Isn’t it beautiful? Her shop Pen and Paint is loaded with beautiful prints like these.

Discovered her shop through The Brand Market (she was a part of our L.A. Tote bags), and decided I need to start collecting her work to rotate as a monthly calendar;) Lindsay works with black and color ink pens as well as watercolor!
