Weekend Snapshots & A Winner!


Good Monday morning, lovelies! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. As you can probably tell from the photos, I finally got to realize my foliage fantasies. My family & I hit the road on Saturday, a picture perfect day. We drove on up to Bear Mountain, Warwick and Sleepy Hollow and were treated to gorgeous views and yummy fall festivities.

We pumpkin picked and ate caramel apples, exactly what I had hopped for. The hills were bursting with vibrant shades of red, yellow, orange and green and then we were treated to the most gorgeous sunset over the most placid pond. The mirrored reflection of the sky and the trees over the pond was so magical. Only the darkness could make me leave.

Before I go, I wanted to announce the winner of the Shopbop Giveaway. And the winner is....


Helena from A Diary of Lovely!!!

Congrats Helena and happy shopping, darling! I'll be in touch shortly with the details. Thanks to all for entering!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday! xoxo
