Hello darlings,

Taking a quick break from my work to peek in and share my September coups de coeur (french for my favorite things) during the month that just ended. I mean September is cool by itself just because it brings us Fall, but I also lived and discovered little treasures that I love to share in one post today. 

Instagram September recap.


1. I have been loving sharing Quotable Mondays. It is basically a post with some of my favorite twittable quotes directly from  my blog. I am starting to partner with bloggers that also do hand lettering to bring pin-worthy quotes that would be published on Mondays. Are you interested in collaborating with me? Let me know! PS. This picture also represents this month's celebration of National coffee day!

2. So happy to have been featured in 2 different blogs this month for which I wrote a short interview. The first was a food related interview on Heartbeet Kitchen Blog that is run by author and fabulous cook Amanda. She also shared a delicious treat here that you need to check out! I was also featured on Allyslewis website in which I shared a bit about how I decided to grow and manage my blog.  If you missed it, you can read it here

3. A sea of neon balloons for a children's program in which I participated this month. 

4. In this month I made my first pie (from scratch) ever! I wrote a whole post about it to share the full adventure. 

5. This month I received my first Deeply Rooted Magazine that came with a beautiful, small print with a spiritual thought for me to display on my wall. I am slowly reading it and I am enjoying some of the stories of creatives and how they use their talents to glorify God and be a light in the world. I discovered that it is more of a young adult women kind of magazine. Some topics applied to me but for others I will have pull it out when I get to that stage of life. 

6. I shared a DIY that I love and use in my house. A neon macrame plant hanger, what is there not to love?!




Coups de Coeur

I am not a big follower of style or fashion blogs, but I discovered this one from my hometown and I love it! 

Do you have a hard time transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall? Here are some unusual ways to do it that I truly enjoyed reading. This blogger is the most creative, style blogger that I've seen in terms of putting outfits together. I have been following her for a while, not only because of her thrifty style that is according to my my own heart, but also for her writing. 

I started joining a new Twitter chat on Tuesday evenings at 9 EST under the hashtag #fireworkpeople. It is a community of creatives that get together to encourage each other on following our dreams, making things happen and use our gifts to uplift others. Join their Facebook page if you wish to check it out!

This month the new Darling Magazine came out and I am so happy. I enjoy reading the articles and pacing myself so that I can really take in all the beauty. Join the #realnotretouched movement. 

I got a membership on Skillshare and have done quite a few classes already but be sure to check out the ones by Justina Blakeney. I've loved her blog, her style, and I've faithfully followed her on Pinterest so when I saw that I could take her class I was ecstatic! Sign up for a free month and take her styling class here

If you are a magazine junkie like me, you will be happy to learn about this magazine called Thryve Magazine. Their message is constructive, challenging, and they have amazing photography. I was glad to come across it through some friends. 

Two exciting launches this month: Christian Girl Magazine launched their site and I am so happy for them! Also, my blogger friend over at Dearly Loved Blog re-lauched her site and if you love reading posts full of insight and simultaenoesly biblically sound, you will love her blog! 

As you know, I love instagram so so much, and here are my 3 favorite IG accounts at the moment: here, here and here.

Movies I loved watching lately, which 2 are food related movies: Chef, 100 foot journey and Begin again.

Enjoy October XOXO
