My favorite time of year is here!
I love fall for so many reasons…the cooking, setting new intentions, planning travel AND pumpkin everything of course.
Here is a little recap // personal mix-ins, whats on my mind, whats in my plans, whats up with trust...all the whats!
Portland, OR Saturday Market Fleur's
East Coast >> West Coast
I just got back from Portland, Oregon celebrating two of my favorite people.
Serena & Jay got married!
They recently moved from the island to Portland.
It was SO fun to have the whole Vineyard crew back together. Everyone is doing different things, living different lives & in different parts of the country so the reunion was REAL. I unplugged for the entire weekend not even on purpose…because I was so happy to be in the moment with some of my favorite people. I am still laughing from that weekend...
October is…Breast Cancer Awareness month.
A topic that is really important to me. Not only do I have one of the most humble, heroic, generous, supportive mama’s in the world…she is also a 21 year survivor. As many of us have lost loved ones to the battle of breast cancer (and other cancers) we can all probably agree, if you have your health you have everything.
Trust will be teaming up with Her Campus to Stand behind & stand up, Stay tuned…
What’s cookin’…IN my head (and IN my kitchen)
Here I go with the personal mix-ins…
I have been thinking SO often lately about life & health & wealth.
I feel so lucky to have my health…here we all are, living in a world where having materialistic things means you have money and getting so many “hits” on instagram means your cool and having so many followers means your successful…
lets get REAL, who cares.
As I have said before, I do realize social media is one of the most efficient business tools (for me too!) I also justify my shopping purchases to convince myself I need these boots because it’s a solid addition to my “uniform.” (Because I don’t have to buy business casual/ professional clothes or scrubs for my job really means I need to purchase these…#eyeroll at myself)
I am also guilty in getting wrapped up in all of the things but the truth is...
I believe if you have your health, you have it all.
I also believe food is medicine…fueling your body with quality foods provides you with the essentials (vitamins, minerals, energy) - Dr. Trust
A coco a day keeps the dr. away!
With that little ramble…here are some of my favorite things happening in my kitchen!
· I LOVE roasting vegetables. In the fall, all of my favorites get thrown into the mix. Butternut Squash, Beets, Sweet Potato, Apple, Onion, Eggplant
(Extra Credit: Don’t throw out your beet greens…I have been blanching the greens & sautéing them in Garlic & Olive Oil)
· I just made this….Quinoa Sweet Potato Chili. It made SO much, I froze half of it!
·Guilty Baker…I usually could care less about sweets (exception ice cream) In the fall…THAT ALL CHANGES! I have baking FEVER.
All I want to do on chilly fall days is bake..I come up with so many excuses & think of all the people I can bake for. Anyways…just whipped these Paleo Pumpkin Cookies up.
And then…I almost ate the whole batch.
Back to Business…
Thanks to my SUPAH awesome showroom in LA, I have a few new accounts trustin’ in CALIfornia…stay tuned!
Also…welcomed 3 new states to the trust tribe…check out the Trust Stockist where ever you are in the world!
A BUNCH of new/ vintage turquoise is Up...check it here!
I have been REALLY busy with trust stuff…so much that sometimes I’ve said outloud that I wish I could clock in & clock out of a job. Sometimes my head spins & I have to walk away & go for a run. Sometimes the world only see’s the glory & not the endless hours of work. I then have to remind myself that dream jobs take work…and the hustle is all worth it.
If it wasn’t for all of you, I wouldn’t have the job of my dreams.
So thank you all for always supporting
(even though I think I have 3 blog readers in total...still love you though!)
