A Peek Into My Life Lately

 I'm obsessed with pink right now if you could not tell. It's all over my apartment, too.
--------------------------------------------------

My week has been a whirlwind of busyness...and I couldn't be happier with a filofax full of appointments & reminders. I'm definitely happiest when I have a busy schedule. On the other hand, it is easy to become overwhelmed with an extra-busy schedule, especially as autumn approaches. There is an invisible force pushing me to be better and a sneaky pressure to be on top of my game at all times. After talking to some of my friends, I have realized that I'm not the only one suffering from the autumn rush. There are only three more months left in 2012, and it feels like I'm in a panic to jam-pack my life before the end of the year. Recently, I've started writing journal-style in a light pink moleskine. It's small enough to slip easily into my handbag, and I pull it out to jot down my thoughts whenever I'm feeling inspired. It's a wonderful outlet for all of my jumbled thoughts, stressful rants, and blissful dreams. I also loving a real & tangible journal. I'm definitely a tech-savy, iPad lovin' girl, but there is just something magical about having a physical journal made with paper just waiting to be filled with my words. If you are also struggling with some of the autumn blues, try writing out your thoughts in a notebook of your favorite color. I think it will make you feel a little bit better after venting to a true confidant.

Here is a small peek into my life lately through my instagram:
Here are some bits & bobs in my new apartment. 

 Some of my recent culinary creations. Well, the beef bourguignon was courtesy of my dreamy fiance, but I made everything else. I love having my own kitchen to create & bake in. 

My first pumpkin spice latte, my new haircut, pumpkins at my favorite grocery store, and Apollo perched above my feet on the couch. 

I'm excitedly waiting for autumn's arrival. I have lots of colorful tights & boots waiting for the weather to cool down. I can always tell when autumn is on the verge of arriving because I come down an overwhelming urge to bake pumpkin pies & build homemade wreaths with cinnamon pine cones. My favorite thing of autumn is the change of color & all of the lovely autumn smells. 

What is your favorite thing about the arrival of autumn??

Lots of positive vibes & lovely thoughts,

Ilove to bake apple & cinnomen muffins, go on long Autumn walks and snuggling up inside when it is rainy drinking hot chocolate :)

I love that advice about the journal. I think it would really help me to jot down my scattered thoughts right now.

I love your new header! I definitely miss having a tangible journal and maybe you have just inspired me to start one back up again ;)
