Testing Pinterest Recipes: Stuffed Orange Pepper “Pumpkins”!

When I saw this recipe for these orange pepper pumpkins on Pinterest, I was obsessed and knew I had to try them out! I put my own spin on the dish and didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but the concept is the same… it doesn’t get much cuter than little “pumpkins” that you can eat! This dish does contain meat, but if you’re cooking for any vegetarians like I was, you can set aside a separate skillet with all of the ingredients minus the meat to stuff the pepper. This dish is great for beginner chefs and I’m sure would be a hit with kids too!

Fall’s Here? Check, Yeah!

Besides the weather, the food, and the activities, another one of my all-time favorite things about fall is the fashion, of course! I love all of the endless options and the excuse to finally break out my slightly insane collection of boots. Since it’s not quite chilly enough for OTK boots yet, booties will have to do for now. I paired these easy fall shoes with this check shirt dress that I got for a steal at this cute consignment boutique over the summer and accessorized with this Coach cross-body bag and this adorable monogram bangle.

I love how a flannel or chambray shirt as styled below can totally transform a look. This shirt that I’m wearing is one I’ve had forever that I borrowed from my mom in high school and never gave back… oops!

Beauty & the Budget: 6 MUST HAVE Drugstore Products

I’ll be the first person to say that I’m no expert when it comes to makeup. I love getting dolled up, and you’ll almost never see me totally barefaced, but, my technique isn’t always 100% flawless. It’s been a lot of trial and error and years of teaching myself through blogs and YouTube videos. I guess that’s real life and unfortunately, we can’t all be as skilled as MAC makeup artists, am I right? Ahead, I’m sharing products I swear by that aren’t only amazing, but affordable too!

The Art of Waiting

I can remember my first date like it was yesterday. It was a sweltering hot Sunday afternoon in the middle of July, and we decided to go to the zoo. My fantasies of a cute afternoon spent strolling, laughing, and chatting were soon completely squashed. My hair was falling flat and lifeless from the intense humidity, and the crowds of people made it so we had to walk single file a la elementary school…not exactly romantic. During the date, I thought it would be fun to go on the carousel together.
