Happy Autumn!

Autumn is definitely my favourite season and all around time of year! The crispness of the air, the colours of the leaves, thanksgiving, and my birthday all add up to a lovely time for me. This is just a general post for the seasonal things that I've prepared so far. I used a rainy saturday morning to pickle some veggies. I pickled radishes, cabbage, carrots, and red onions. For a general pickle, you use 2 cups of vinegar, 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of salt. I added coriander seeds as well. You can boil the water before you make the mixture for food safety.

I made my own pumpkin spice latte from scratch, and I have to admit it was pretty delicious! Make coffee or espresso. In a pot combine 3 tablespoons of pumpkin purée (just the canned stuff) with about 3/4 cup of milk, brown sugar, and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. Let it heat up and add it to a mug with your coffee! I topped it with more pumpkin pie spice to make it the ultimate latte!

I have multiple pretty pumpkins around my condo now, and they just add such a wonderful sparkle and piece of autumn. IMG_2193.JPG

 

This best shows my autumn mornings: Bingley, sleeping on my bed, being cute and cuddly. I'm so lucky to have this little guy! IMG_2189.JPG

Apartment Series Introduction

Good morning everyone! Today I'm embarking on a new journey on my blog. I will officially be starting my apartment series. I recently just moved into a condo and it is quite small, but at the same time, so perfect!

I wish I could show you the before and after, but the before was just so scary (like excessive visible dirt scary!). However, I'll be listing all the things I changed to make it much less scary. Decorating and fixing an apartment certainly doesn't have to be pricey, just take your time and you'll find the right pieces at the right price.

The gnome cohabits with me in my front hall (haha), as you can see he's a cute protector! The lamp I got from Target, and I filled it with turquoise glass beads that I'm pretty sure my mom has had for twenty years. The little fox bowl, which now holds candy and treats, is actually a measuring cup that I picked up in a set from Winners. These three items sit on a white cabinet which was originally $350 from Winners and I snagged it for $50! So proud of that deal.
