Every fall I like to invest in a pair of quality leather boots, which typically means another pair of Frye boots. This year I am after a pair of booties, preferably of the brown variety. Above I’ve put together a list of my top contenders. The Fryes and Paul Green booties are definitely at the top of my list.

  1. Jackie Gore Stitching Horse by Frye.
  2. Billie Boot from Madewell.
  3. Paul Green “Aubrey” Bootie from Nordstrom.
  4. Sam Edelman Pacific wraparound strap bootie from Nordstrom.
  5. Spye Bell bootie Clarks.
  6. Kate Spade New York Prospect boot.

Happy Friday! I happened upon this quote the other day and since then, I have not been able to get its simple yet beautiful message out of my mind. Even in its simplicity, it’s funny how difficult this message is to follow sometimes. For me, it’s not competing with others that I have a hard time with, it’s comparing myself to others and their levels of success. So let flowers be a reminder that the only way to be blissful and successful in all aspects of life, is to do things that you truly enjoy, without worrying about what others are doing.

Have a uniquely wonderful weekend centered around you!

I have had Cactus Amethyst or Spirit Quartz on my wish list for a while now and I finally found this beauty.There is something so mystical about it, its sparkle, shape, and its natural purple and orange color combination.

Healing: Cactus Amethyst is an extremely uplifting and spiritual stone that radiates high-vibration energy in all directions. Assists in an effective but gentle psychological, mental, and emotional detox. Promotes purification, protection, spiritual evolution, and freedom from fear.

Chakras: Opens the crown chakra (7th) and the higher crown chakra (8th). Also works with the solar plexus chakra (3rd). Aligns and purifies the entire chakra system.

Placement: Place on the crown for chakra work or in home/work environment.

*All metaphysical properties are from The Crystal Bible 2 by Judy Hall.


Below are some pieces I am currently coveting that are inspired by uplifting Cactus Amethyst.

I haven’t posted in a while and I figured October 1st was the perfect time to start up again considering my love for the month of October. October is my favorite month of the year, and not just because it’s my birthday month. I love the crisp fall weather, the beautiful foliage (yay New England), apple picking (mmm warm apple cider donuts), the official start of soup season, and of course, Halloween! Above is some inspiration for fall!

Yay, the long weekend is finally here! This weekend my boyfriend and I are planning day trip to Peaks Island in Portland, Maine for some sea glassing and sunshine and I cannot wait! I have been so swamped with work lately (the reason for the lack of posts) so it will be nice to get away, even if it is just a day trip. Lately, I have been really into stripes with pops of pink, which will be prefect for a casual weekend day trip. Do you have anything fun planned for the long weekend? Have an awesome Memorial Day weekend!

  2. Stripe sweater from the Gap.

Delicate Vesuvianite is so beautiful, I love its natural soft green color with hints of purple.

Healing: Vesuvianite is useful for the manifestation of the heart’s desire. Helps one figure out their true path or calling in life. It aids one in finding the courage to make changes in jobs, relationships, habit patterns, thoughts and emotions in order to fully realize the heart’s yearnings. Brings enthusiasm back in life.

Chakras: Beneficial to all of the chakras, according to its color. Yellow-greenish Vesuvianite, helps to simulate the solar plexus (3rd) and heart (4th) chakras, helping one align personal will with the desire of the heart.

Placement: Place in personal or work environment or wear near the heart.

*All metaphysical properties are from The Book of Stones by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian.


Below are some green and purple pieces that are inspired by Vesuvianite.

A 1950’s inspired corset bodice is always at the top of my list, especially when combined with an elegant train PLUS the black and white color scheme, it all just screams old hollywood glamour.


From a young age, I have taken any opportunity that came my way to dress up, be it a birthday party or a holiday. I think that is why I have such an obsession with red carpet events, I love seeing everyone dressed to the nines. The Met Gala has always been my favorite red carpet event, I love its extravagance, loads of couture, and the often artsy flair. Above are a few of my favorite looks of the night. Who was on the top of your best dressed list?

Hemimorphite has always been a favorite of mine, I have always been very attracted to it. I love its soft blue color and sparkly crystal appearance that resembles a bright blue sky or a tropical ocean.

Healing: It’s an extremely protective stone, especially against malicious thoughts and manipulation. Promotes self-development, encouraging one to take responsibility for one’s happiness. Promotes inner strength, optimism, honesty, and communication.

Chakras: Excellent for the throat (5th) chakra, helping one to find their voice, and speak their mind.

Placement: Place on the throat for chakra work or in personal/work environment.

*All metaphysical properties are from The Crystal Bible 2 by Judy Hall. 


Below are some pieces I am currently coveting (especially the Tory Burch bag) that are inspired by the lovely Hemimorphite.

Audrey Hepburn Standing on Sailboat


As cliche as it sounds, Audrey Hepburn is my ultimate style icon. From the way she dressed to the way she carried herself, she was absolutely perfect. Since Sunday would have been Audrey’s 85th birthday, I found it only fitting that she was my inspiration for this week. I’m taking cues from her for my easy yet classic spring/summer style, by combining classic silhouettes with both parisian and nautical notes. Who is your style icon?

  1. Fitted boyfriend stripe shirt from the Gap.
  2. The Gap’s white denim shorts.
  3. Free People stone cluster ring.
  4. Nautical tie sandals from Victoria’s Secret.

❤ Crystal healing: Citrine…

Beautiful Citrine is a part of the Quartz family. The name Citrine comes from the French word “citron” meaning lemon. I always carry a piece of Citrine in my wallet to bring prosperity.

Healing: Citrine is a powerful healer and regenerator. It is extremely warming, energizing, and creative. It protects against negative energies. A stone of abundance, it helps manifest and attract wealth and prosperity, success, and all things good. Raises self-esteem and self-confidence, and removes destructive tendencies.

Chakras: Cleanses the chakras, especially the solar plexus (3rd), and the sacral (2nd) which contributes to creativity, healing, sexuality, intuition, intellect, personal power, ambition, and protection.

Placement: Carry Citrine in your wallet to promote prosperity. Place a piece in the wealth corner (farthest back left point from your front door or the door into an individual room) of your house or business.

*All metaphysical properties are from The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall. 


 Below are some Citrine inspired pieces that I am currently coveting.
