My Favorite Jewelry Trends for Fall

As back-to-school approaches, I can't help but look forward to the Fall season. One of the best things about Fall in my opinion, is the fashion! With tall boots and suede hats to chic satchels and statement jewelry, it's the best time of the year to have fun with accessories. Personally, one of my favorite Autumn accessories, and the easiest way to update an outfit, is jewelry. From a big bold ear cuff to minimal gold necklaces with interesting little pendants, my fashion forecast for Fall this year includes more modern and sleek pieces.

For example, while I tend to love a pair of sparkly statement studs or a larger dangling statement earring, this Fall I see a modern ear cuff being one of the biggest earring trends, and it's definitely one of my favorite jewelry trends! It looks great on its own or paired with some gold hoops, and you can even pair it with a cool ear crawler. These elegant and modern ear cuffs come with sleek built-in tassel earrings.

Immune-Boosting Strawberry Kale Smoothie


Smoothies are my favorite meals to have in the summer. They're quick, healthy, and yummy. A smoothie is a great way to pack in veggies and super foods, like ground flax or chia seeds.

You can right click to download the recipe above. Simply blend the ingredients together on high for a few minutes until thoroughly combined. You may have noticed the recipe calls for frozen broccoli. I started using that in my green smoothies because it's practically tasteless when mixed with fruit, and it adds a nice chill to the smoothie without watering it down like ice does. I used to do the same thing by using frozen fruit, but it's a lot cheaper to get a big bag of frozen broccoli. I also like to use almond milk in my smoothies, but to make this one creamy, don't use anything other than plain coconut milk.

The super foods in my strawberry kale smoothie have many health benefits. A smoothie is the perfect opportunity to take in apple cider vinegar without having to deal with the taste. The ground flax also adds a good amount of fiber, calcium, iron, and omegas. To make this a post-workout smoothie, add protien by swapping the flax seed with 4 tbsn almond butter. (I would only use one or the other simply to keep the calories in check.) Kale is my absolute most favorite green to put in a smoothie. It is tasteless and packs in large doses of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, along with good amounts of other nutrients. Strawberries are also very high in Vitamin C, and 1 cup of frozen broccoli contains 50% the daily value of Vitamin C. With the large amount of Vitamin C in this drink, you could definitely think of it as an immune-boosting smoothie.
