'Cause I'm Free Falling

Fall is here! Or so it felt like it this past weekend. We woke up to quite the chill (lows in the 40's) but that chill quickly blew away and back to the 70's it went. It was a very big tease. I'm not much of the PSL type of girl but I do love CAS (Caramel Apple Spices) and as I sit hear writing this I am DYING for one.

August Top Three

If you've been around BIH long enough, you've seen me do some different things in regards to my "favorite things" each month. I use to like 10 items and then just called them my favorites but I have a lot of favorites, so I decided to do a "Top Three" favorites for the month. Hopefully in the coming months I will be able to do a more in depth video on things that I am loving that month.

Erin Condren Life Planner: I can't live without this planner. I'm totally not lying. This is the second year I have purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner and this year by far is the best. With upgrades and more choices, I was like a kid at christmas when I pre ordered by planner. I did a post about a year ago (you can find it here) on this planner. I think I need to do an update. If you are old fashion and very organized, like me, this is something that you really need in your life. I promise you won't regret it!

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Gloss: I love the chapstick version of this. And I someone (I think it was my girlfriend Claire) told me a couple months ago that they where coming out with a lip gloss version of the Baby Lips.  I nearly flipped. I searched for months and when they finally came out I could resist this #55 color. It adds a little pop of color on top of any lipstick. I wear this all the time over everything. I LOVE IT!

Sweater Weather Candle by Bath and Body Works: Can we please talk about how obsessed I am with these candles!?! And here is a secret - CJ is too, even though he doesn't like to admit it. Last weekend we stopped by our local Bath and Body and found out that a sale was going on and they where $12.00! So we picked out one that we both really liked and I remembered I had a coupon for an extra percentage off. Well it was an extra 40% off my order so we ended up with three candles and a candle holder for 22.00!! I died. But in all honesty these candles are amazing. Every year I get my good old faithfuls like Sweater Weather, Flannel and Autumn, but they ALWAYS blow me away when they come out with new flavors every year. Marshmallow Fireside and Apple Pumpkin Pancakes, I'm looking at you....

Summer's Last Hurrah

When I lived in Florida, summer never ended. I thought the whole rule of "No white after Labor Day" was a stupid rule for people who didn't live in the south. Tuesday I found myself staring into my closet and realized I love white and now the sinking feeling of the fact that I am a resident of the Mid-west. Sadly I packed up my sandals and moved my white dresses and other white pieces to the end of my closet. 

Before we moved out of our condo in July, I had CJ shoot one last outfit for you guys. It turned out beautifully. I will always remember this windy evening and how my sister always made fun of me for always taking pictures in the middle of our street. It just seemed so raw and real to me. 

I've had this blue tank and white jeans for a couple of seasons now and I love the combo. These two pieces will stay in my wardrobe for years to come. And the best part? I purchased them at GAP! So you know they are not expensive!

Welcome back and Life Lately!

Well hello everyone! It has been a hot second since I posted. And man, do I have a lot to share! I took a little summer break. Which was nice, but it really wasn't a break per say. I was up to my neck in stuff to do! So let's jump back in so I can update you on what's been going on!

In mid-July CJ was asked to interview for a possible position in Northern Indiana. This wasn't the first time we had talked about this position. Back in March we got a phone call regarding the interview. After much talking we decided that this could be a great opportunity for us and that he should go for the interview. So he went up, nailed it and the prep for our move began.

Thankfully our condo lease was up at the end of July and as soon as CJ came home we immediately started packing. We moved into CJ's parents house until our move and lived out of suit cases while all of our belonging where stored in my parents garage. It was nice to spend three weeks with them before we made our life changing move.

In the midst of all this CJ graduated from college and we had a huge party to celebrate. Which took a lot of planning. That plus moving we had so much going on (so much so that I actually put the wrong day for CJ graduation party and realized it 2 weeks after we sent them out!). My parents said they would be more than happy to help us move and drove down from Northern Georgia to help. Which was BEYOND helpful and so nice to spend a "hellish" week with my parents! On August 18th we left for Indiana. Thankfully my parents house is a half way point and we stayed there a couple of days before we drove to Indiana. Our dogs did so well but we could tell that staying at so many different places in a matter of a month took a toll and they where really confused.
We arrived in Indiana Friday August 21st with CJ start date at work to be August 31st. Originally we had planned to stay with friends for a couple months but after being in Indiana a couple hours we decided that we should look for our own place. And we where blessed to find one that afternoon and moved in that night.

Needless to say it has been a whirlwind last month. We moved five times (from our condo in FL, to CJ parents house, to my parents house in GA, to our friends in Indiana and finally to our apartment.). Getting settled and back to normal is something we are getting to. Patience is a virtue and I can't wait until everything is normal again.

Oh and in between all of this CJ FINALLY PROPOSED! It was extremely sweet how it happened. But that is for another post. But I am happy to report that I love my ring and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with this man!
Stay tuned tomorrow and every week day for new post, giveaways and much more! Can't wait to share with you guys what's new and exciting! Also be sure to follow me on Snapchat (kyleeinheels), Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date on whats happening in real time! Until tomorrow!
