November’s Necessities for your Nest

Okay, so as a highschooler/college kid in a dorm, I never really understood people being so intense with their cutsey home-decor trinkets, entertaining accessories, and fancy utensil shopping. You guys remember those miserable times that your mom dragged you to go furniture shopping and you seriously thought you were experiencing a slow, painful death? Maybe thats just me, but as a kid, there aren’t many things worse than that (except maybe the post office or the plant nursery)

BUT Since I’ve lived in a house of my own, I get it. I’m addicted to changing up my decor/ furniture/ kitchen extras/ etc. Like, really, really, obsessed on a weird, crazy-house-lady level. Also, I feel like I’m constantly re-locating lately, so I’ve had so many excuses to shop for my multiple living arrangements. Aaaand, because I’m moving to California soon, I have yet another reason to be scouring Pinterest for the best of the best in home decor.

So, y’all. Check This Shit Out:  November Home Favorites: ROAWO

[ 1 ⋅ 2 ⋅ 3 ⋅ 4 ⋅ 5 ⋅ 6 ⋅ 7 ]

I mean, how cooliolio is that stuffz? Hope y’all have the best Tuesday your little hearts can handle.

PS: Our Giveaway winner is Elizabeth Holtrop! We’ve contacted you via e-mail and your basket of goods will be in the mail this week!

A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of my Favorite Things :: ROAWO Sup.

So this next week is gunna be quite a tough one. I have two tests right off the bat, so I’m using this weekend as ( a little bit ) of a chill / relax weekend before the craziness. I mean, Its a Friday night, I can literally hear the herds of people walking to the bars to be social & have fun, and I’m just laying in my bed with my dog soo…

Anyways.

I’ve rounded up 8 of my favorite things ( my list posts are always so awk with the numbers ) that I love this week, and yes, Drogo made the list. Again.

Little Table Styling :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com Little Table Styling :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com How cuuute is my little convenient table? Its right next to my bedroom door, and basically, I use it as a catch-all for all of my shit ( usually, its a lot more chaotic-looking ). I got the sidetable ( I don’t think its avail anymore, but theres a similar one here ) & frame from World Market, the skull piggy-bank from Gilt, and the acrylic catch-all as a gift ( similar here ).

P.S. These silver bracelets will be a part of my giveaway with Boho Nouveau coming soon! 

Upcoming Interviews on ROAWO :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com Okay. I am, like, INSANELY excited for all of the interviews coming soon to ROAWO. Y’all will dieee over these girls. And luckily for you people :: They are all going to share some of their secrets to greatness with us.

I’ve known most of them for quite awhile now ( I lurve that I have such inspiring & creative friends with passions for things! ), and I cannot wait to feature / publicly appreciate their amazing-ness. Here’s a little sneak-peak for ya:

1. Sarah went to middle- & high-school with me & has always been such a creative spirit. Now, she owns a company called Serendipity Fine Lines & Such. She specializes in hand lettering for weddings, prints, stationary, etc. ( find her Etsy store here ). Cannot wait for y’all to meet her.

2. Lauren is a health / fitness guru & Beach Body rep from Fort Worth, TX ( aka my city / whoop, whoop, go Cowtown ). Since I’ve known her, she’s always been passionate and informative about eating healthy & working out. I mean, this girl is up & on early-morning runs while everyone else is pretty much dying & hungover on the weekends. She’s got her shit together.

3. Baylor is a singer/songwriter ( from Dallas, Texas ) with a reallll talent & passion for her music. She’s gunna give us all the deets on her cool AF life. ALSO, she’s a contestant on the upcoming season of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. Like, what a badass, right?

4. Meghan is a fellow blogger (owner of Boho Nouveau) from Canada ( !! ) with super-chill personal-style & a wanderlust to match. We got to know each other through planning our soon-to-come Fall giveaway, & I’m pretty much obsessed with her now. Stay tuned to ROAWO to find out alllll about her.

Rachel Zoe Booties :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com These booties by Rachel Zoe are out-of-stock, but you can get a similar look with these ( equally as awesome ). Love the idea of wearing white in the winter / fall… breaking the color “rules” makes me feel all rebellious. (<< This print comes in a sandal as well)

Chicken Tacos !! :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com I took the fillings from my Quinoa-Stuffed Bell Pepper for One, added some grilled chicken, and made some delish tacos ( on corn tortillas, of course ) for lunch yesterday. These flavors are my fav. The fiesta continues !!

BEST Dry Shampoo Ever :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com Lately, I’ve been washing my hair less & less ( it’s not gross, okay. Its actually reaaaally good for your hair to wash less ), so dry shamp has become a necessity. This miracle potion { Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak } is my absolute fav dry shamp out there right now.

Fall Nail Polish Line-Up :: Ramblings Of A Wild One I’m loving these nail polishes for fall. Yeah, pink is all pastel & springy, but I think you can wear this color in the fall as well. Its clean & simple. On the other hand, this burgundy Deborah Lippmann polish in ‘Blood’ and this dark blue/black Essie polish in ‘Licorice’ are deep, dark, & deliciouuuuus colors.

P.S :: The Deb Lip polish is included in my upcoming Fall giveaway with Meghan !!

My first article on Haute Mess Mag !! :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com I already announced my joining the Haute Mess Mag team a few days ago, but I just got sooooo excited when my first article was posted… I gotta talk about it again.

Haute Mess Mag is your online source for a plethora of topics like beauty, fitness, fashion, home decor, cocktails, etc. Kinda like ROAWO, but with more minds behind it.

My first article covers a few of the things I do to ward-off anxiety & stress along with a really short version of my story pertaining to clinical anxiety. I think y’all will love it & the rest of the HMM website! Click on the ‘Contributors‘ page & my picture to see all of my posts!

German Shepherd Dog :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com And last, but obvi not least, my main man, Drogo. He’s almost 10 months old now, so I’ve been thinking through some first-bday celebration activities. Yeah, he has no fucking clue that he’s turning one, but I do & he’s having a party. Duh.

He’s an 80-pound puppy. And the sweetest boy ever ( despite his looking like a huge, scary monster of a dog ). I am absolutely obsessed with German Shepherds… they are prettty much the most badass & good-looking dog breed, in my opinion. Huskies come in a close second place.

Does anyone have any healthy dog-treat recipes or something like that? He has to have something suuuper tasty to celebrate his first bday.

Welp, that’ll do it for my Fav things this week. I hope y’all like all this shizz as much as I do ( I know you do.. okay? )

I’m off to pin things for like 3 more hours and then go to sleep on this crazy Friday night I have going. College is always sooooo badass & fun, right? …. Not.

Yaaaa, bi.

A Few of my Favorite Things

Cute Little Dress :: ROAWO I am so excited for this week’s edition of Favorite Things because, as you’ll learn, this shiz is the shiz [ like this dress ]. Here’s the list for the week:

Tiny Tea-tox :: ROAWO Tiny TeaTox :: ROAWO 1. Tiny Tea Teatox ( Gluten-Free Version ) :: This detox-tea was surprisingly so delish & its such a little detox/cleanse to do. I am in the middle of my detox right now, and I already feel so much better & more “at one” with my body.

YourTea has several types of herbal teas aimed at overall wellness. I chose the TinyTea because it focuses on weight-loss and resetting your digestive system. They believe that digestion is the center of your overall health, and that by allowing that system to run smoothly, you’ll have more energy, healthier / brighter skin, less cellulite, etc. So, I said sign me up! All I do is have a cup of this little miracle tea twice a day after or before a meal ( for 14 days ). Too damn easy.

BTW: My roommate & talented artist, Abbey, painted the mug… so amaze.

Succulent Garden :: ROAWO Succulents + Mexican Blanket :: ROAWO 2. Succulents ( & This Cute Little Blanket / Rug ) :: Aren’t these little plants so freakin’ cute? You can get them for super cheap at Ikea, but I got mine in the botanical section of my local grocery store.

I have been extremely obsessed with flower / plants / candles lately ( which is why I signed up for flowers to be delivered to my door every other week, thanks to The Bouqs ). Seriously, My house is becoming a freaking garden / zen candle-lit space. It gives the place good vibes.

PS: you can find a similar Mexican Woven Table Runner here.

Frends Headphones :: ROAWO 3. My Frends Headphones :: These Layla Headphones by Frends are my life. These are the smaller-sized rose gold headphones & they are perfect for everyday [ at the gym, in the library, etc. ]. Frends carries a variety of headphones that are seriously SO FUN. They took regular, boring headphones and made them an accessory.

Head on over to Frends to browse their collection.

Pretty School Supplies :: ROAWO 4. Pretty, Organized School / Work Supplies :: I’m a sucker for anything having to do with organization. Its probably my horrible case of self-diagnosed OCD, but everything I have has to match or be organized away from my eyes in nice, matching, clean containers / folders / etc. I love writing in Moleskine Notebooks when I have to take notes. I know they aren’t your standard spiral-notebook, uhhhh ‘cuz they’re cooler & way prettier. Also, I label everything with simple little stick-on labels.

I’m looking for a fun little planner / agenda for the semester, but I can’t find any that I just have to have. Have any suggestions? I need your help!

PS: Laptop Skin can be found here.

Black Tied Jewelry Co. Necklace :: ROAWO Black Tied Jewelry Co. :: ROAWO 5. Black Tied Jewelry :: I have recently become one of the many bloggers to partner with Black Tied & I’m loving this online store! They have a ton of trendy jewelry for ridiculously cheap. I’m in lurve.

The above bracelets can be found here, here, here, & here, and the above necklace can be found here ( got mine at a custom length, thanks again Black Tied !! ).

More to come with this brand fo sho :: like stay tuned for a sweeeet promo code, perhaps.

AND I may or may not be putting together a little giveaway with Meghan of Boho Nouveau which could include some Black Tied pieces ( + more goodies ! ) ….

Homemade Green Juice :: ROAWO Homemade Green Juice :: ROAWO  6. Homemade Green Juice :: As a self-proclaimed ‘Juice Enthusiast’ since infancy, I drink green juices as much as possible. They’re delish, fun, & most importantly :: detoxifying.

This week, I made a huge batch of green juice to drink for a few days. I put ( organic & fresh from the farmer’s market ) spinach, kale, cucumber, cilantro, peaches, & pineapples into my juicer to get the base of this week’s juice.

BTW: juicing things is extremely addictive. I found myself intensely searching my kitchen for things to juice like a psycho. There, I said it. I am a juicing psycho. The second I started to consider putting a potato in the juicer, I realized I had a problem.

After I had my base, I added in some coconut water, vanilla protein powder, & a touch of cayenne to give it a little kick. I really like savory elements in my fresh juices. It makes things a little more interesting.

Fried egg on Veggies :: ROAWO 7. Sautéed Veggies + An Egg :: So, I used to freaking hate vegetables. Like, I had an extreme hatred towards them & I refused to eat them. Then, I learned how to season them, and BAM. I love them. A big bowl of greens is seriously the cleanest & most detoxifying hangover cure EVER. Packed with vitamins & minerals, I feel like a new person after eating these babes.

I sauté Broccoli, Zucchini, Brussels Sprouts, & Asparagus tips together in olive oil over medium heat. Then, I add Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Garlic Salt, Cilantro, & Lime Juice. THEN, I go even further and add a “fried” egg on top for some protein.

PS: I used to be an egg white girl, until reading this post on The Skinny Confidential. Now, I eat about an egg a day with the yolk included. Read for yourself!

So, there ya go. A Few of my Favorite things for y’all to try. Do you luuuurve any of my fav things this week? Plz Share!!
