Round-Up: Fall Favorites

fall favorites1. I love love LOVE my Fitbit Flex!

2. Taking One a Day women’s gummies makes it so easy to get your vitamins every day! Finally vitamins you can take without a meal.

3. Bath & Body Works Leaves 3-wick candle is one of my favorite Fall scents! I love BBW candles because they actually make the whole room smell AND they’re only $12 when you catch a sale.

4. Bath & Body Works Tahiti Island Dream White Sand body scrub smells SO. GOOD.

5. Tall Guy got me this Mac Viva Glam VI Lipglass for my birthday and I am OBSESSED! I guess it’s hard to get this shade nowadays- Tall Guy didn’t end up finding it until we were in a random makeup store in Myrtle Beach!

6. Playing bocce at the Fieldhouse has been the best thing to happen to my Fall! “Deboccery” doesn’t even begin to cover it. (PS: Winter registration is now open for those of you who want to join in on the fun!)

7. Bareminerals Velvet Vanilla Eyeshadow is my go-to under-eye brightener.

8. This bag (Michael Kors Jet Set Tote in Luggage) is my baby. Isn’t it preeeeetty?!

Cheap and Easy Thanksgiving Dishes

Only 1 WEEK until Thanksgiving! My shopping is (mostly) done, my schedule is made and I’m in total planner mode over here (can you tell?). This will be my first holiday hosting (!), so here’s hoping everything goes as planned!

I’m an avid baker and a pretty decent cook, so I’m really excited to be making the meal, but I will admit that the idea of being in charge of the main event for such a big holiday is a bit daunting. Luckily, most Thanksgiving dishes aren’t all that complicated, and buying most of the ingredients won’t break the bank, either!

My Thanksgiving Menu



Cranberry BreadMy mom’s recipe. Better the second day, as she notes, so it’s a perfect make-ahead recipe! You will most likely have all the ingredients on hand except the cranberries (and maybe the orange juice, if you’re not a juice drinker like I am). Don’t worry if you’ve never made a loaf of bread before, this recipe is fairly fool proof as long as you don’t forget about it…

Free and Fun: Fall Festivals Around Philly

My latest piece on Broke Girls Go Out… Fall is festival season in Philadelphia!

Broke Girls Go Out

There are few things I like doing more than perusing the aisles and food trucks at an outdoor festival on a sunny Saturday morning. Luckily for me, Philadelphia has a plethora of Fall festivals to choose from, and most of them are free to attend (delicious food truck fare and craft/art/vintage purchases will cost you, though).

Uwishunu is a good one-stop-shop for all things Fall festivals in Philly, but I’ve highlighted a few of the ones I’m most looking forward to below.

Night Market –  Happening TONIGHT!

nightmkt The Food Trust holds its final Night Market event of the season tonight in Chinatown! Come hungry because this outdoor food truck festival has over 60 of the city’s best food trucks, plus some local brews and bands. Although this one isn’t right outside my front door (see below), I still expect it to be a great time. Single serving portions are $5…
