Happy Friday! I hope you are enjoying October as much as I am. September was a hard month, and one I wasn’t sad to see go. October is always one of my favorite months, but it is absolutely flying by! I have a lot of exciting content happening over here for the end of the year that I am looking forward to sharing with you. Thanks for joining me for my coffee talk for October 2019, so grab a cup and join me in this month’s chat.
Now that we’ve experienced a few cooler days, I’m ready to start pulling out all of my favorite velvet pants. They’re back this year in this Burgundy color, but also in a pretty dark green that would be nice for the holidays as well!

It’s October 19, and the Tanger crew gives out some of the best swag bags around! Breast cancer awareness is near and dear to my heart as my aunt passed away when I was a sophomore in high school from it.
