Nessa's World: September 2013





It is finally starting to feel like Fall! We finally got some rain, which helped the weather cool down a bit. We are loving it. I am still crazy busy organizing and decorating our new place. I'll be back on blogging mode very soon. Evan is wearing his new Freshly Picked Moccasins in the color Smoke and his favorite striped beanie to complete his look.



I discovered these awesome pumpkin leggings on All Things Lovely. You can find these at a discounted price along with other amazing daily deals. When I saw these leggings I automatically thought of Freshly Picked Moccasins in the color pumpkin. I put together this cute and comfortable October outfit. I think it screams HALLOWEEN! I love it! Hurry and snag a pair before the sale ends!

Meet my niece Isabella! Isn't she the cutest? I am so obsessed with this precious little girl. Evan loves being around her. They occasionally fight over toys, but at the end of the day they love each other. Welcome Isabella to the blog. Baby fashion is so much fun. Especially little girls!

Bodysuit: H&M // Cardigan: H&M // Moccasins: Freshly Picked



I have been on Pinterest trying to find some home decor inspiration. I came across Z Gallerie. They have everything you need. Their items are so rad and unique. I started following them on instagram and I got so many ideas. I can't wait to receive what I ordered in the mail. H&M has cute items for the home too. You can't beat their prices, and you can never go wrong with Target or Ikea. I picked a couple of my favorites to share with you. Honestly the skull is my number one favorite! Where do you shop for home decor? 


I feel like I have not blogged in forever. We have been so busy packing and moving everything into our new place. It feels so weird finally having our own space. It will definitely take some time to adjust. I am excited for this new chapter in my life. Evan seems to like his room, but I doubt he will sleep there. He loves sleeping with mommy. Thanks to my boyfriend's dad we got all new furniture. We can't thank him enough. Life is great and I really can't complain. Thank you for stopping by... until next time!

Friday the 13th

Evan and I are both sick. We have been staying in hoping to feel better soon. This is the reason why I have not been updating as often. Tonight we went out for dinner to celebrate my sister's birthday. We dined at Fogo de Chão. We had such an amazing time. My sister was delighted. Happy Birthday Crystal! Love you so much sister. Friday the 13ths are not always bad luck! haha


Just Do It

My boyfriend and I are challenging ourselves to a 90 day workout plan. We are finally motivated to lose weight. He is a former Marine so being over weight to him is a huge no. I have always been very small, and I need to lose a couple pounds and tone up. Our eating habits are horrible. We are always eating out. We have decided to put a stop to it. We will be working out to Tapout XT.
Today was our first day working out and eating clean. I am extremely out of shape. I do work out from time to time but only the basics. This training is on another level. I know it is going to be tough, but I am up for the challenge.
Our home cooked meal. Thanks to the boyfriend. His cooking is delicious.
We took a before picture, but I won't post until we see some kind of results. haha
Wish us luck!
