Friday is heeerreee and fall is in the air.
1. Des Moines Lifestyle Blog
I’m playing around with the idea of making this more of a “Des Moines” focused lifestyle blog. I feel like I just keep enjoying this city, the people, events, and experiences more and more and more. I freaking love Des Moines. This “Des Moines lifestyle blog” idea also appeals to me because I’m not really seeing any females in the city doing it. There are so many ideas that continue to fill my brain that I want to share!
2. Coziest Pullover Ever
Have you been to Active Endeavors in West Des Moines? They started carrying a brand called Stateside and their pieces are basically butter. With a few trips in the pike, I knew a simple, black pullover would be a staple. And with the turn in temps, I’m wearing it all the time. It’s easy to dress up a bit or with leggings. Hop in and see all the amazing stuff they carry (including Patagonia).
3. Systems + Simplification
I published a post earlier this week about some of the ways I’m systemizing and simplifying everything in my life. In fact, a handful of gals in FemCity Des Moines are mastermind-ing it up together and focusing on ONE goal we want to crush in our life + business and almost all of us are totally refreshed by decluttering and simplifying. There are always things we could or should be doing, but what’s the most important? Love exploring this.
4. Drinks in Des Moines
Considering #1 above, this fun outlet keeps my friends and I exploring the city and capturing some amazing happy hours, drinks we love (not just boozy), and places that are worth visiting. We are working on a super simple website, but for now come follow our experiences on Insta + Facebook.
5. Following my Curiosities
I’ve kind of always been a Jill of all trades. I love experiencing as much as possible as often as possible and being decent at a lot of things. This used to bother me. A lot. I never had (and don’t have) a “thing.” It was really only recently that I came to terms with the joy I have in exploring and following my curiosities. 🙂
