Fashion…  This past week was New York Fashion Week and I tried to catch as many of the shows as I could online.  There is something amazing about seeing the shows and anticipating the next season.  Alice and Olivia is one of my favorites and they always put on a great show.  This year they did something completely new and different and I loved it.  Check it out here.

Food and Drink… I love pumpkin and this is the second year that I have decided to forego a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbuck because of all of the sugar and calories.  Look it up…  It’s WAY more than you think it is.  Either way I have come up with some pretty good make at home options that will help your PSL craving.

In my French Press I add 6 tablespoons of a coarsely ground medium roast coffee.  I get mine ground at Whole Foods.  To the French press I add a dash of cinnamon and a dash of pumpkin pie spice.  Be a little light handed with this this first time you make it because the taste can be overpowering.  Add your boiling water to your French press and allow to steep for 5 to 7 minutes.  Press your coffee and serve with a few drops of vanilla stevia and warmed lactose free half and half.

You can also make your own pumpkin spice creamer that will do the trick if you don’t want to go through the trouble of the French press.

Social…  We have so many fun things coming up I am getting excited just thinking about it.  Just this week don’t forget about the Private CaBI Fitting on Monday and the Golden Lily Trunk Show on the 24th.  We will be ready and available at both to meet your styling needs.

Health…  So my goal each week is to get to the gym at least 5 times.  Some weeks that just isn’t going to happen because of my schedule or something coming up with the kids so I have a small set of weights that I can use at home.  Having a set of 5#and a set of 10# dumbbells makes it easy for me to do a short, high rep, low weight routine in my bedroom.  This is my current favorite for legs and glutes…

Family…  This maybe a food and drink topic but it helps my family so I am putting it here.  Do y’all Waitr?  Have you discovered the goodness of Waitr?  If you have not you need to download the app right now.  Life changing.  It’s our Friday night go to these days rather than ordering pizza.  I can have good healthy food at my door within an hour and it’s only a $5 delivery fee.  Trust me on this.

News…  here.If you follow the Real Housewives than you certainly know about the Giudice family and their criminal issues.  There has always been a chance that Joe was going to be deported and now it looks like it may happen.  Check out the article
