Loving Lately- October

This month's roundup of my favorite things. Included is a muffin recipe, podcast, pair of sneakers, and oil diffuser from Amazon. Happy Fall Y’All!

Ann Arbor has been experiencing a heat wave lately (not cute) and I have been re-wearing the same 3 outfits that are school appropriate and semi-cool…because there is no air conditioning in my school! By the end of the day, my hair looks like a lions mane and I am ready for a nap.

bring on the fall weather….please!

I can’t control the weather but I can share with you some of the things I am loving lately to make your fall more lovely and fun!

  1.  The Lazy Genius Podcast

I discovered this podcast through another podcast, and I am obsessed. I have been binge listening for the past week trying to absorb all the helpfulness I can. Because the website says it best:

This is not a place where you’ll get tips on how to do it all. The Lazy Genius Collective will tell you to stop doing it all. Living by a list of “shoulds” is exhausting and leaves zero extra time for just being a person and watching TV. And isn’t that what we all really want?” 

Yaaaaas to all of this! My favorite episodes so far are her guide to cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry. SO helpful! Also, how dorky and adult-ish am I to be excited about learning how to clean my kitchen and do laundry in the most efficient way possible?!?

2.  These Banana Blueberry Muffins by Oh She Glows

I made this recipe before our camping trip last weekend and oh my am I in love! So delicious and so easy. You most likely already have the ingredients in your kitchen and they make your house smell heavenly—and they’re vegan! I froze half of them and they have been awesome for breakfast on the go….just reheat in the microwave! Link to recipe here 

3. This Oil Diffuser


I have wanted an oil diffuser for a while now but just never got around to purchasing one! I finally did, and I am loving it! We love diffusing lavender before bed. This one works really well, can be used as a nightlight– if that’s your kind of thing, and it’s only $16! Click the image to shop on Amazon.

4.  These Sam Edelman Sneakers


I purchased these at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago and have been wearing them nonstop. They’re super comfortable and look great with everything. I don’t have to dress up much for work so these have been perfect for every day. I have them in a beige faux-croc design…I haven’t been able to find those exact pairs but I found similar on Amazon. I love the burgundy velvet pair! Click the image to shop on Amazon. Link to shop on the Sam Edelman website here
