Fall fashion tends to be all about warm tones, comfort, and functionality. It’s the time of year when the weather changes ever so slightly but yet drastically impacts the way we dress. What about the way we accessorize though? I’ve scrolled through a handful of blog posts that point out Fall clothing trends but hardly anything regarding how we should be accessorizing these outfits? Fear not though internet, I am here to save the day and introduce you to my new favorite little gem.
Let me just tell you a bit about Daniel Wellington…
DW is a Swedish watch brand that makes beautiful time pieces in an assortment of different styles. The beauty in their watches is highlighted by the simplicity. It’s minimalism at it’s finest. Carefully crafted and designed to match anyones lifestyle!
From experience, I can say my Daniel Wellington watch has followed me from a museum tour, to apple picking, and through a night out with friends. It’s so versatile that I can take it nearly anywhere without worrying about whether or not the watch would stay stylin as much as I was. And to make it even better, the brand features swappable bands! So even if desired, I could switch a look for something different – saves me from having to buy a new watch all together! Super convenient!
The piece featured in this post is my Classic Petite (size 32mm) Durham in the color silver. This watch gives me all the Fall vibes so when I saw it, I knew I had to have it! This specific face comes in a gold detailing too but I chose silver to match my wedding ring!
In addition to the incredibly ultra-thin case design. The watch wraps around you with a light brown leather band. The leather band stays secure on my wrist keeping the watch where it can be seen best. That’s always been a huge issue for me in the past – finding an accessory that isn’t too large or too small. This one fits just right!

My morning routine is typically stressful from waking up to the 10 alarms I had set the night before to making sure my pets are fed and of course remembering everything I need before running out the door. After all of that, I’m still SO exhausted and in need of a morning pick me up. I used to stop at Starbucks in the morning. Which would always end up taking another chunk out of my routine. Standing in line, ordering, and waiting for someone else to make my drink? It was just so unnecessary to waste my time doing that and even worse…waste my money on something I could do myself.
Thankfully, I was recently sent a Keurig to try out and boy did this little gadget change my life. Instead of paying $5 for one cup of coffee, I can spend approximately $9.99 and make more than 10 cups of coffee! Mind you, at home and quickly!
A few of my favorites have been the Caribou, Starbucks, and Green Mountain Coffee pod packs. The flavors are so rich and fresh. It’s also super nice that I get to create my own coffee creations! I’ve been experimenting with creamers, milks, and sweeteners. It’s been so much fun!
Oh, and can we just briefly touch on adorable coffee mugs and cups?! You don’t get that at a chain coffee joint! I scooped up this navy blue one from the Target dollar spot for only $3! It’s been my go-to for cold mornings (the few we have been getting *
rolls eyes*). Fits a perfect 10 oz serving size!
So if you want to save money, get to where you’re going faster, and be in control of your morning consider checking out a Keurig! In addition to just being convenient, the models available are just gorgeous and come in a variety of different colors! Let me know what you think and reach out so we can swap coffee recipes!
I’ve always struggled with finding ways to nicely say “no thank you”. And that sounds so dramatic to say. But as a young, millennial, female entrepreneur, there are more than enough reasons to justify why I feel the way I do. Especially in this point in time where the rights and equality of others are being recognized and yet continue to be manipulated.
“Never accept anything less than what you deserve. Remember you teach people how to treat you..”
Truthfully, it hasn’t been easy to overcome the fear of saying no. Yes, I said fear. I say this because in my case it stems from intimidation, the unknown, and the willingness to make someone else comfortable instead of myself. Whatever your case may be, I wanted to go through some of the ways I’ve been able to conquer this issue and tips that could help you too!
You Are The Priority
One of the reasons I felt so guilty for saying no was because I believed other people mattered more than I did. I would say yes to picking up extra shifts even though I knew I was stressed and overworked. I went out more often, spent money I didn’t have, and accepted unhealthy habits because I just didn’t feel confident enough to say no.
They’ll Get Over It
There’s always going to be a reason for saying no. It’s not just something we say for fun. It’s a word that lets others know “that’s not okay”, “I don’t like that”, or “I don’t want to do that”. It’s not easy and it’s not something we necessarily want to say but it’s empowering and allows you to make decisions. If someone does not respect a no or refuses to accept it, that’s their problem. Majority of the time the individuals who do that are the people whom you’d be better off without anyway.
“Life Tip: Do you”
You Are Not The Problem
In previous situations, I’ve been called a lot of different things for standing my ground on my no’s. But the truth is, I’m not the problem and neither are you. Stop blaming yourself for choosing an unpopular response. Whatever your reasoning is, I’m sure it’s a good one. Take the time to remember and reflect upon your values, morals, and goals. Did saying no keep you aligned with your overall plan? I know that’s hard to maybe understand over the internet but if you really think about it – our choices today truly reflect the things that happen to us tomorrow. So, choose your yes’ and no’s wisely.
