it’s fall which means it’s time for boots and i’m here to solve all of your boot issues this season! it’s nice to have a good pair that you can throw on with jeans, wear with a skirt or dress. maybe something that makes a bit of a statement or keep it neutral. i’m a big fan of the bootie, especially since i live in southern california where it is rarely appropriate to wear knee high boots. but i also find them so easy to wear and for the most part very comfortable. i think they are a crucial part of a solid fall wardrobe. every single boot that i’ve included below is on sale and from . this isn’t sponsored but i find some pretty amazing deals on their site and if you know what you’re looking for you can really score. the site is easy to navigate and since Saks carries a good variety of brands it’s easy to find things you love. it’s my shopping secret that i’m passing to you, enjoy! – joanie

 

– if these are available in your size, buy them! i think they super cute and totally wearable. a little flair for your feet with a laid back denim look.

 – this green/grey color is a favorite of mine. these have the perfect heel height for running around but still giving your leg a little lift.

– cool looking rain boots that don’t cost a fortune, need i  say more?

 – i’ve had my eye on these for awhile and i was very happy to find them deeply discounted. this is a wear with everything color that you’ll keep reaching for.

 i find Cole Haan shoes to generally be very comfortable i love the slight western feeling of these and that dusty brown hue.

 – some people consider leopard print to be a neutral and i don’t disagree. i think these boots are very chic, especially when worn with skinny black jeans.

 – silver is the new gold and these metallic grey boots are where it’s at.

 – another LR pair that i love. true story, i saw a girl wearing these in the airport and i did a lot of research to find the origin of them. they look very fancy in person and i love the narrow foot!

TRUE BOTANICALS GIVEAWAY + DISCOUNT

true botanicals | designlovefest

i’m almost low maintenance to a fault when it comes to self-care and taking care of my skin. for years, i barely washed my face or moisturized on a consistent basis. i know, that’s bad! it never really felt worth it to me because i didn’t notice that much of a difference and sometimes my face would even break out if i did anything to it. i was always bummed about the dryness but never took initiative. that all changed when about 8 months ago i started using the line. i have really dry skin and sort of just thought that was the way it was for me but i can honestly say that my skin has changed so much since i started using their line. in particular,  and . people have even commented on my skin, which neeeever happened before.

that’s why i’m so excited to be able to do this giveaway where one person will win four of my favorite products from the line! and they are also offering a 15% discount off orders* between today and October 2nd so stock up while you can because they almost never do any discounts!

the mask is something that i really noticed a difference using. i use it about 2-3 times a week. you just apply a layer to your skin and let it sit for 2-5 minutes. just leave it on while you brush your teeth or something and then use a warm washcloth to remove it. you can start to feel it tingling closer to 5 minutes and can feel it really working on that dry outer layer. apply the oil and serum after and your face feels amazing!! especially with a final mist. it has become my new obsession/routine. and all of their products have NO added toxins in them, so you can feel great using them.

i brought the line with me during my recent trip to europe and it really helped maintain my skin quality with all the travel. the mist is one of my favorites, it’s an instant refresh, smells SO good and is very relaxing. i actually use it as one of my daily anxiety relievers and it helps me a lot. seems silly, but works for me!

i totally understand that their products are pricey. if you’re looking to try the line but want to start small i’d suggest beginning with . and using almost a full dropper 2 times a day. if you have dry skin like me, i would say the moisture mask is next inline in terms of changing my skin and helping with the dryness.

joanie: “i just use  and it lasts about three months which works out to a little over a $1/day.  for me, i’d much rather take good care of my skin than get a new bag or pair of jeans because when my skin looks and feels good i feel so much better.”

GREEK BOWLS

greek bowls | designlovefest

ivan has a very specific memory of going to the mall with his family growing up and eating greek bowls in the food court. it’s a memory he loves and an experience that introduced him to greek food, something he still loves today. he really wanted to re-create it for the blog and i’m so glad we did. i love that we used chicken thighs instead of breasts as the meat turned out really moist. the bowl is packed with veggies and really full of flavor, it’s a real crowd pleaser! enjoy! – joanie
