Fall is in full swing in Chicago. Nothing gets me more in the fall spirit than festive comfort food. This recipe is easy and full of flavor. I have honestly never cooked pumpkin but wanted to incorporate it into this recipe, what is more fall festive than a pumpkin, right? Unfortunately, the grocery store didn’t have pumpkins available… other than canned pumpkin. So, I resorted to butternut squash.
Squash always reminds me of my grandpa, he used to have the biggest garden in his backyard and grow everything, including squash. When we visited, he always made the best squash muffins and had tons of mashed squash in the freezer, I was hoping it was reserved for the future muffins he would send home with me. Since my childhood, I look back to those memories of cooking with my grandpa and all of the delicious things he would make from the garden in his back yard. Living in Chicago, I can’t have a full blown garden just yet but I am excited for the day when I will have my own garden that I can pull ingredients from. Until then, I am forced to rely on the grocery store’s product availability.
Anyways you didn’t come here for my reminiscing, scroll down for the recipe and enjoy!

Never did I think that Tie Dye would come back into style. When I was a kid, no matter the vacation I would always get a souvenir Tie Dye shirt. Since my teen years, I thought tie dye was too juvenile and never wore it again. Fast forward to today, I am seeing it everywhere and it’s growing on me. I have seen a couple of cute long sleeve shirts and crops that I really like, when I went to buy what I had my eye on, I saw the price…. it was $55 for a pink tie dye shirt and $60 for a teal long sleeve… No thanks. As always my thought process is, “I can do this myself and make it look the same for half the cost”. I feel like I can’t be the only one who doesn’t want to spend $100 on a tie dye shirt, so I decided to make a “how to” blog post!

I don’t really remember the first time I thought of graphic tees as fashion. I think it was when I saw one of my girlfriends show up to a bar in a t-shirt and I was wearing a more dressy top. I thought, I should do that, it looks so comfortable. Tees are so versatile, I just hadn’t grasped that concept yet. Gradually, I started to accumulate more (cute) graphic tees, that weren’t just my old college or work out shirts. Graphic tees have also exploded on Instagram, dressed up or down and even worn as dresses. I have found three main places that I love to get my tees from.

Apparently, there is a Summer Sephora VIB sale? Did anyone else not know about this? I thought there were only two sales a year with Sephora, so I guess I missed something. I wasn’t aware until I received a flyer in the mail a few days ago. Anyways, as shocking as it sounds there isn’t anything that I will be trying out on this sale, but you better believe I will be restocking on all my favorites! I have found a lot of items that I love and others that, frankly, just aren’t worth it. All of the items in my restock are SO worth it! In efforts to get the best bang for my buck I will only be repurchasing things I love. If you haven’t tried these items, I recommend getting them while the sale last. You will notice that I won’t be purchasing any new makeup, I don’t wear a ton of make up on a daily basis and therefore don’t need to restock very often, but I will be loading up on skincare! I have included all of the info you need to get in on this sale, all of the links are shoppable, you are welcome! Get Ready, Get Set, SHOP!
