It’s now September and tear, tear – the summer is coming to an end. Well, at least that would be true if I was still on the east coast, but shockingly, it’s still 80’s here in Sunny California on a daily basis! Hey – I’m not complaining…although I could use a bit of some cool breeze every now and then.
Anyway, I’d rather not jinx anything and just get to my point. I love the changing of seasons. It means in with the new and out with the old. It means trading in your crop tops for big sweaters and letting go of your blonde, sun-infused highlights for a darker look. It also means (my least favorite part) giving up that glowing summer tan.
As my way of saying “Welcome Fall”, I’d like to introduce you to my new section:
In with the New Obsessions and Out with the Old – where I will give you a rundown of my new obsessions’ for the week and the ones that I’ve moved on from. For those of you who know me well, I don’t really care what people think. So if I’m newly obsessed with something that was trendy a month ago – get over it! And I mean that in the nicest way possible. Second thing you should probably know about me, I sometimes pick up new hobbies or become obsessed with something one day and then completely move on from it the next. So, just bear with me – I tend to be impulsive when it comes to things like that 🙂
Now, what have I been obsessed with lately?
Flash Tattoo’s – I know. I’m totally late on the band wagon. BUT thankfully, Summer is not exactly over here in California, Which therefore gives me an excuse to get tatted up all over my bodddd. I love this gold and metallic look on the hands, wrists, ankles, back, anywhere! It’s so fun and instantly chic’s your outfit up.
Acai Bowls – Well, because they are 1000x’s more amazing than the best parfait you’ve ever had – yes, I realize that is a risky statement – but trust me, that’s saying A LOT. I mean Acai Bowls are the most amazing purple deliciousness that has been created, topped with all of your favorite health-food toppings…what is there not to love??
Fresh White Sneakers – Again, this trend has been around FOREVER thanks to chucks. But lately, the “no-white” after Labor Day hasn’t stopped me. I’ve been allllll about my clean new white Vans. They’re fun and dress down a casual/fancy outfit, which I love for work!
Choker Necklaces – THANK YOU to Brandy Melville (and Kylie Jenner) for bringing back my favorite childhood accessory – the Choker Necklace. I feel so in touch with my inner rebellious, bad-ass self.
Festivals – Yes, I realize this is VERY vague. Because there are no limits to what kind of festivals I wouldn’t attend. Music = number 1 for sure. Food = definitely close to number 1, but number 2 will do. Drinking/Food = Well, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a DAGE? Case in point – I love festivals – be it an arts, food, and wine festival (yes, the bar area LOVES these), an edm festival, a Lululemon Yoga festival, and OctoberFEST, a Greek Festival, a Food Truck Festival, etc. – the list could go on and I am forever thankful for this.
Cookies and Cream Quest Bar – First let me start off my saying that this particular flavor happened to come out JUST A FEW DAYS after I decided to go Vegan. This obviously upset me because I love oreos and I loved quest bars – but sadly, the whey protein in there meant I could no longer eat them as a Vegan. You can imagine my excitement in trying these once I moved away from my Veganism – pure joy I tell you! The chunks of oreo goodness are purely amazing.
Socks – Who knew socks could be so multi-functional?? Also, how can you not be obsessed with fun socks when you find yourself immersed in a store full of JUST socks? Silly socks, chic socks, knee socks, dress socks, and oh, there’s more. Whether it’s paring fancy socks with heels or rocking your best pair of funky ankle socks with your white kicks…socks rock and will forever be your best friend when it comes to fighting off those blisters…….
Road Trips – I don’t care where you are, who you are with (alone, with family, friends, a significant other) just do it! Go somewhere completely new, be spontaneous, don’t have a set schedule. It’s always best to just wing your road trip, seek new adventures, make some friends and take in whatever beautiful scenery may be surrounding you. Oh and take advantage of the last of the warm weather – I don’t suggest road-tripping in snow…trust me, it’s no bueno.
That my friends, is what’s hot in Calli’s world …for this week!
