I’m back with my new series, On My Radar. September’s On My Radar post was a hit and I’m excited to be back this month with some new stuff! This series is where I feature new finds, things/items I’m curious about, stuff I’ve tried, books I’ve read or books I want to read, etc. I hope it will encourage you to find something new or try something new. I love finding cool stuff – whether it’s for me or for someone else. Keep reading to find out what’s on my radar for October!!
I am a sucker for Chuck Taylor’s. And I just added this pair of Chuck Taylor’s to my shoe closet. Give me all the Chuck T’s!!
I already own 2 Madewell bags. The Transport Tote and the Drawstring Rucksack. Yet, I really really really want to buy their regular leather backback. Slight obsession?? Yes. LOL
I recently finished London Falling by Emma Carr. And it was awesome. And then I learned it is also a series! And I can’t wait to grab book 2 which is London Dreaming.
I just started The Moonglow Cafe by Deborah Garner. I’m only a few chapters in but I’m loving it so far!!
I’m excited about a new book releasing soon (November 22) by Angela Correll!! I’ve already read her previous 2 books (plus interviewed her on my podcast!!) and absolutely fell in love with her characters and the story. Her first book was titled Grounded (and you can read my thoughts on Grounded here). Her second book was titled Guarded (and you can read my thoughts on Guarded here). Her third book is titled Granted. And I’m actually giddy with excitement because I get to revisit these characters again!!
I was hired by Olay to be an ambassador of their products for the next year. Part of my ambassadorship has included me participating in a 28 Day Challenge with a couple of their products. The first product is Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer and the second product is Olay Ultimate Eye Cream. So far so good. I’m up for anything that will reduce my wrinkles around my eyes that are more than just smile lines!!
Can I just build my farmhouse already?!? Oh wait – I have to go in order of my goals before I can build a farmhouse. LOL While I build my farmhouse in my head – I’m going to window shop as if this building dream of mine is coming sooner than later. Which means I can begin shopping for it now right?! I think I’ll start off with these GORGEOUS Rose Gold Flatware from Pottery Barn. I’m a sucker for mixed metals!! And I think I just found the perfect sofa for my office. And it’s pink velvet.
Learning how to put a business plan together for a creative business isn’t easy. Especially when you’ve never written one before. I have a new adventure on the horizon and I’d like to get going on my business plan. The One Page Business Plan for the Creative Entrepreneur by Jim Horan, sounds like it’s the book for me!
Have you listened to my Nitty Gritty Blogger Interview Series?? It’s happening now on my podcast – Boss Girl Creative!! I’ve got 6 interviews released and 5 more to go!! So many great nuggets of wisdom from these ladies! And SO many nuggets waiting to be discovered in the unreleased episodes!!
WEDDINGS & EVENTS
Y’all – I made a trip out to Marfa for a GORGEOUS wedding vow renewal photoshoot. And I cannot wait to share this experience via photos and videos with you!!! While we both wait (impatiently for me lol), here’s some great articles recently featured on some of my favorite online wedding publications!

I love your comment about your dream farmhouse. I have a plan for my dream house. I know exactly what the kitchen will look like, my girl cave, the library. Everything is taking shape step by step in my head. Thank you for sharing things you’ve been exploring.
Fun post! Thanks for all of the new ideas – especially the books. 🙂
