Happy Monday! My normal Friday Favorites never hit the blog, so I’m sharing a little of what I’m loving lately on this muggy Monday in Connecticut. Our weekend was fun, but jam packed! I’ve had a very few busy days of home projects, family parties, antiquing (I found a table!), blog consultations, and an exciting visit to The LOFT. Now it’s time to catch up and enjoy my last week as a 32 year old (eek!).
From fall fashion to fall decor to a blog makeover from Jenna Leann, here is what I’m loving lately in September 2018 on Confessions of a Northern Belle.
Blog Makeover – Thanks Jenna!
If you haven’t noticed yet, Confessions of a Northern Belle received a little makeover, compliments of Jenna and a new theme. Read a little bit more about my fellow CT Blogger Boss Babe and her talents.
Hello! My name is Jenna from www.jennaleeann.com. I’m a fashion and lifestyle blogger who happens to be pretty tech savvy as well. I offer digital services over on my etsy store —> www.etsy.com/shop/jennaleeannllc . I offer services like blog design installation (i install pre-made designs that you purchase from someone i.e. on Etsy), I offer host transfer services (i.e Blogger to WordPress, GoDaddy to Bluehost, etc.) and I also offer a bunch of printable resources for entrepreneurs! If I don’t offer a service you’re looking for, chances are I can do it so just ask and we can work something out!
Fall Fashion Favorites at The LOFT
I was invited to visit The LOFT for a little try on session and preview of their new fall styles Sunday morning. It was my first try-on at a store that I posted on IG and so much fun! This Sunday I will be hosting a private shopping event for my CT friends at The LOFT in South Windsor! Here are some of my favorite items in LOFT stores right now:
Fall Decorations in the Great Room
With the first day of Fall in less than a week, our house is already prepared for the amazing season. I’m hoping the weather starts to cooperate as it’s been less than enjoyable the last week around here. Anytime you have to run the air conditioner in September is unpleasant. My birthday is a week from today and all I’m asking for is cooler temps!
Annabelle, Ailey, and I had quite the last few days together while Brandon was visiting family in Tennessee. It is so hard to parent alone and I’m thankful to be here in CT around family and friends who helped me out! I always commend the Moms and Dads who do it alone because it isn’t easy. The sisters get along well (for the most part) but it’s hard to cook, clean, play with the girls, run this blog, and somehow find time to shower. My house looks like a truck hit it and there is more laundry than every needed to be done, but the girls were fed and happy all weekend long so I think I’m a winner!
I’m headed to make my version of one of our favorite weeknight dinners – Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili despite the warm temps outside. I am working on a post sharing this must-have fall recipe for you, but check out Instagram for a few hints on how I make it. I hope everyone enjoys their week!
