Friday Favorites–Fall Addition!

Good Morning everyone! This week has flown by, and I cannot believe that it’s Friday already! In Wisconsin, it also feels like the change of the season has flown into high gear and taken us from 70 degree weather to 50 degree weather. Autumn is one of the best times to live in the Midwest because you get to experience a sensory overload–your eyes get to take in all of the magnificent colors, you can breathe in the crisp air, you get to feel the chill of the breeze but feel the sun warming your face–it is by far my favorite season. This week, I’d like to dedicate all of my Friday Favorites to fall.

Color Me Happy…

If you’ve looked at my Scrapbook page, or if you know me personally, then you are well aware of my love for nail polish. I’m not exactly sure when this obsession began, but I am currently up to about 170 nail polishes. My biggest offenders are OPI, Butter London, and Essie, but I do have a few other brands mingling with favorite go-to’s. Here are the polishes that I’m currently craving this season:
