Life Lately

Time has been so good to me the past few weeks...Here are a few photos of what's been happenin...
This guy right here is quite wonderful. This past Saturday he and I ran the Haunted Half Marathon in Salt Lake! We've been running all summer and decided it would be fun to have something to work toward at the end of the "good weather seasons." We both were both pleased with our times. I finished 13 minutes faster than the American Fork Canyon Half I did in June this summer...I am happy with my progress and hope to be able to keep it up during the cold months!
 Salt Lake does Fall really well! It has been absolutely gorgeous. The colors and the weather have not disappointed.
I have been wanting one of these bags for month!! I was lucky enough to meet up with Sarah, the owner and designer of Anne B. I got to choose each detail of my bag and got to wait in anticipation as it was handmade especially for me. I watched her put the finishing touches on this one..hehe.. US made and best of all Anne B employs local refugees here in Salt Lake City. I feel so privilaged to know Sarah and see what hard work goes into her business. She is very well deserving. I hope you'll check out her website and I can't wait to style this beauty!!
I was lucky enough to win one of her cosmetic bags which fits nicely in my purse and goes with me everywhere. I loved the fabric so much that's what I decided to go with on my cross body bag as well. Swoon!!
 Just trying to stay cozy as the weather turns...


Let's just finish with a little "style flash"
 Karla and I checked out the new Uptown Cheapskate in Sugar House and found ourselves some treasures! It's a resell shop/consignment shop with lots of name brands! I purchased this fun sweater among other fun items.
 I've been wanting a fun, dainty, everyday necklace to wear with my longer ones and finally found this one from Wood Keeps. This one is called "She's a lady" and I added a little gold ring. This is another company I am beyond pleased with their mission. They strive to produce the best quality but with the lowest possible impact to the earth. All their products are crafted using reclaimed and re-purposed woods. They search for lumber with a history (which is my favorite part as you know I love vintage for that reason..) I also love that what they use allows them to have no waste in the furniture fabrication as they use the cut-offs and overshoots as keepsakes! Check out all their amazing items on their website HERE.    
I got these Asic tennies on Karla and I's excursion to Uptown Cheapskate. I have to hold myself off from wanting to go back! hehe.
 My love for Lotta comes along with me in the cooler months. :)
Vintage sweater for $5! woot woot.
Andd.....thats all folks! Thanks for following along!




Twenty-nine years young. 

Thank you to all those who made my day a little extra special. I feel so very grateful and blessed.



Live the Little Things//October 5

It has been too long since I've shared some photos from the #livethelittlethings hashtag on instagram. I explained about this HERE to give you an idea of what this is. 

Not only is it my birthday month but we are coming up on the one year mark since my friend Meg and I started the hashtag project! Crazy to see how far it has come! There are now almost 40,000 photos shared. So inspiring to see how others have taken the challenge to slow down and notice the little things in their lives. Be grateful for every moment. Even the small moments we often overlook.
 ^^This photo I snapped on my run last night. A live the little things moment of my own. It was the most beautiful night and the colors of Fall are killing it here in Salt Lake. Oh..And I ran 8 miles!! I felt so good. Getting ready for my race in 2 weeks. So excited. 
^^These are the four photos I shared on my instagram feed. Each makes me want to be even better! Be grateful for Octobers, notice the views I have all around me, take my time enjoying my mornings, and never never never giving up.
^^If you need me, this is where I will be all day. Listening to inspiring words from inspirational people. I love Conference weekend.


PS I did a guest post on my friend Gentri's blog today talking about thrifting and my personal style. I addressed a few frequently asked questions that I get so make sure you go check it out! Have a wonderful and beautiful Sunday friends.
