Brain Dump! Plus - It's FALL!

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Don't be getting all technical with me now! I know Fall started oh 11 days ago, but just the sound of October sounds much more official.  Although I can't say it feels like fall here in Hawaii with the humidity we've been having.

Disclaimer: This post really doesn't have a rhyme or reason and it a collection of all the jargon stuck in my brain.  Considered this a RAW post!

Lately I realized that I've been dressing all wrong.  I haven't been feeling confident in my work attire and am in the process of slowly changing it out.  Right now I'm loving Old Navy's fall collection, and if I could I'd buy every piece, I would.  But since I ain't no baller - piece by piece.  The pixie pants are so comfortable and fit pretty well - I am a little disappointed that the camel color isn't flattering on me which is a bummer.  My default jeans are definitely the Rockstar Mid-Rise Skinny jeans.  I could live in those.  Interestingly enough I found a pair of jeggings at Walmart that received a ton of compliments.  I think I'll pick up another pair this paycheck.  I'm also on the hunt for some good leopard print pieces to add to my wardrobe.

One big NEW ITEM I have to share with you all is that I'm a contributor for the Hello Nature blog and my first post officially published last week!! So exciting, right?? I shared a fall inspired Roasted Butternut Squash recipe and you should definitely check it out because.... word on the street is that it's so enticing a few women who have detested butternut squash is seriously considering giving it a try!  So stop on by.  This coming month I'll be sharing another deletable recipe as well as a Holiday inspired post - so make sure you get Hello Nature in your blog reader!

September has definitely been a month of learning to balance.  I haven't quite gotten it down - as I've slacked on recipe posting for Whippin' Kitchen so I'm really hoping to iron that out this month.  I have three recipes waiting to be posted.  Apparently, slacking on photo editing gets you no where.  And then of course - paid contributor gigs are the priority right?  Well not completely, but committing to something of the sort and challenging myself to be able to follow through in a timely manner is progress for me, for sure.

And so, moving on - it's a rare occasion that I get excited about Halloween (I've only semi-dressed up once and at that, it was more so just face make-up, see here), or even have a costume or character in mind before October even hits.  Alas, this year I'm going to dress up as a CHOLA!  And for some odd reason I can't be more excited.  Bring on the plaid, converse, dark lips, big hoop earrings!  I'm excited.  And I'll definitely be going pinterest crazy on makeup tutorials and outfit ideas.  Oh and what do you know - My girl DUCKIE already has a post about it, check it here!

I think that's enough randomness for now!!  It's Wednesday - and although people are excited it's hump day, I've got about five meetings to attend this afternoon and so I'll be happy when the day is over!

xoxo, Aukele

  1. Those pants are adorable! Especially the polka-dotted pair. I'm on the lookout for some new pants that are less "business-like" since I don't have to wear business pants anymore. Woo-hoo! What is the fabric like? Are they definitely like business pants or a little more casual? I might pick up the polka-dotted pair either way, but I'm also considering the wine colored pair.

    Congrats on your first post on Hello Nature! I love butternut squash, so I will definitely be checking it out.

  2. Its stretch but not jean or leggings or anything. Kind of hard to describe. Its can be business and can be worn on the weekend. Lets say business casual - dress em up, dress em down. I love them!!!
