welcoming fall with the mint julep boutique


i stepped outside for a run this week and was pleasantly met with 70 degree weather. fall is so near! it officially begins in less than a week, and i couldn't be more excited. much as i love summer, every time september comes around i am so tired of sweating everywhere i go in this south carolina heat.

one of my favorite parts of fall has always been fall fashion. i love sweaters, scarves, boots, and jeans. wearing dresses in fall has never been my strong suit, as i typically feel clueless when it comes to layering. but, when i stumbled upon this denim shift dress from the mint julep boutique, i immediately fell in love. it's perfect for this in-between phase when summer is ending and fall is just beginning. it's not too cold yet, so i don't have to figure out how to style it with tights or a winter coat ;).

so, to start this lovely season off right, i am hosting a giveaway for a $25 giftcard to mint julep boutique! just follow details below to enter.

indie craft parade

we made it back from the beach on sunday just in time to check out the indie craft parade. indie craft parade is a celebration of handmade art in greenville, sc. it's such a great way to kick off fall. local artists, far and wide, came to share their creations. i loved how each artist decorated their booth differently, in a way that promoted their product and aesthetic. there were seriously some of the cutest [and coolest] items. i would have bought everything if i could. 

i wasn't able to make it out last year, so i'm so glad we were able to spend some time at the 'parade' this year. so much fun!

you can find out more by checking out their website, here.

6 ways to eat an avocado

with the end of summer and the beginning of fall approaching, i'm trying my best to soak up every last bit summer that i can! when i think of enjoying these summer months, i often think of a tall margarita with chips and guacamole [yum!]. guacamole is a great way to get a good dose of nutrient-rich avocado, and often my go-to... i could gobble up a whole bowl by myself! but, it's not the only way to incorporate those goodies into your diet. i've compiled a list of my six favorite recipes with avocados that are both healthy and delicious.

1 // sweet potato and black bean cakes with creamy avocado dip
2 // gooey black bean and avocado brownies
3 // serve it on top of hearty vegetarian chili
4 // a green power smoothie for a healthy breakfast or afternoon pick-up
5 // chocolate avocado mousse with pistachio macadamia nut crumble
6 // caprese avocado salad

enjoy a few avocado recipes for one last final summer hoorah!
