random {october} monday

I've said it before, usually, I try to keep things light and happy 'round these here parts. But this morning, I was feeling down, lost, not wanting to get out of bed, afraid to face the day... do you ever feel that way?

But now that my morning cup of coffee is kicking in, the October sun is shining through the window {its warm glow lighting the randomly placed Halloween decorations throughout our house}, I am beginning to get that feeling again... that little something inside of me that says "anything is possible." That feeling only grows when I review some of the random things I wanted to share today.

I think maybe a new haircut may be necessary to bring me out of my recent blues. What do you think of these shaggy Brigitte Bardot bangs?

Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate rocked my world. Now, their Salted Caramel Mocha is a game changer. Since it is basically guaranteed to turn your not so swell day to fabulous, a homemade recipe could be a life changer.

Hi there Kiboots boots! I waaaaaaaaaaaant you! I want you so bad.

Just browsing through a few pretty things and my day is feeling better already. What do you do to lift your spirits on down days? I'm definitely in need of some suggestions.

Happy first Monday of October!



  1. I do a little online shopping for myself, and my little munchkin. Always brightens my day!! :-)

  2. I think that sounds like a fabulous idea! I'm feeling pretty happy at the moment but maybe I better try that anyways... ya know... just in case ;)
