Can you believe it's already October?! Seriously, wasn't it just August like, last week? I do love October-- it should finally start cooling down (I hope!), Halloween is coming up, and this month I am BUSY. I have a concert, a couple trips to NYC planned, birthdays, haunts, and who knows what else. It should definitely be a good month!

I recently did a little shopping to update my fall wardrobe and am so happy I came across this pretty floral dress! I thought it would be the perfect fall pairing with these high rise ankle boots-- you'll definitely be seeing more of these boots on here all season long!

Breakfast To-Go: Berry Granola Parfait

Easy Berry Granola Parfait

Berry Granola Parfait

I love my morning breakfast smoothies but sometimes I need a little break from them but still want something on the healthy side... and something I can eat quickly or on-the-go. This base of this parfait is packed with antioxidant rich berries and is so yummy topped with creamy yogurt, crunchy granola and fresh fruit. Mmmm!

Berry Granola Parfait
1 cup Frozen Mixed Berries
1/4 cup Water
1/2 - 1 tbsp Honey
Vanilla Greek Yogurt or Chia Seed Pudding (try this recipe)
Fresh Fruit: I used raspberries and a banana but you can change it up- kiwi, blueberries, nectarines, peaches, strawberries- whatever you like!

Puree the frozen mixed berries, water and honey in blender. Once smooth, pour into glasses and refrigerate to set. After about 10 minutes, add a couple of scoops of yogurt over the berry mixture. Top with granola and fruit and you are good to go!

Good HUES-Day: Fall Denim

2015 Fall Denim Trends

If there's one trend that's become most apparent for fall, it's denim and not just jeans. You'll find that denim skirts and even shirt dresses are tremding and the popular chambray isn't going anywhere either.  For jean lovers, flares are back in a big way!

How are you wearing denim this season?

Makeup Monday:butter London Shadow Clutch Review

butter London Shadow Clutch Review

Do you recall the post from a few months ago where I had announced that nail brand butter London was branching out to color cosmetics? They have been adding more and more to their color cosmetics collection and you can bet this girl is so glad they are-- the products are nothing short of amazing.

One of the newest items is the ShadowClutch, a palette filled with 6 gorgeous shades and the best part? It's customizable! You can pop out the existing shades and pop-in a different shade from bL's Wardrobe Duos collection. For the past week I've been using the ShadowClutch in Natural Charm, which is filled with pretty, rich earthy neutral shades: Linen (matte vanilla), Quartz (gold-beige sheen), Camo (khaki sheen), Camel (matte nude), Citrine (soft coral sheen), and Leather (deep matte brown).

The shadows themselves are infused with primer (whaaaaaaaaaat?!) so it takes out the step of having to add primer. The shadows apply smoothly, with bold pigmentation-- I've been experimenting with a deep brown smoky eye, a soft coral look with winged liner, and a simple nude eye look.

Have you tried anything from butter London's cosmetic line?

Recipe: Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Overnight slow cooker apple butter

Apple Butter and Biscuits

Aside from pumpkin, apple is another undeniably fall flavor favorite and that includes apple butter. Sweet, tart and insanely yummy, apple butter is perfect to add on biscuits, pancakes, crepes, pork chops, ice cream, these apple butter rolls... or just eat it by the spoonful. I won't tell!

The best way to make apple butter, at least in my opinion, is overnight in the slow cooker. It makes the house smell absolutely amazing and it's basically ready for you when you get up! What could be easier? Follow these simple steps below:

Apple Butter
8-10 Apples (I used a mix of Granny Smith, Gala and Red Delicious), peeled, cored and sliced/cubed
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Cloves
1/8 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla

Place the peeled, cored and sliced apples in your slow cooker. In a bowl, whisk together the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Sprinkle over the apples and stir to coat. Cook the apple mixture on low for 10 hours.

After 10 hours, stir in the vanilla and break up any large chunks of apple. Replace lid and cook an additional 2 hours. If you want a thicker apple butter, leave the lid ajar so the steam can escape. Puree the apple mixture using an immersion blender or food processor. If you'd like it thicker, you can leave in the slow cooker on low for longer, otherwise let it cool and then transfer to jars. 

Keep in the fridge for up to two weeks or freeze. Enjoy!
