My Fall Essentials

Fall is here! I'm so excited because fall is my favorite season. I just love the cool mornings, pumpkin spice everything, fall scents, fall fashion, and best of all, the scenery! To kick it off for fall I thought I would share my fall essentials with you guys. So let's get into the post!

My first fall essential is a cozy candle that smells like fall. I just love when you can smell fall in the air with cozy pumpkin scents. It's just so awesome! I've really been enjoying the number 69 candle from Candlefish. It smells like really good breakfast, and it's kind of like a maple kind of scent. I've almost burnt through the whole candle which sucks, but I've also been using a pumpkin gingerbread one that smells like heaven!

My next fall essential is pumpkin smelling beauty products. There is just something about using pumpkin smelling lotion in the fall that gets me in the fall mood. Honestly I would say fall and winter smelling beauty products are the best out o…

The Negative Effect of Social Media

Hey guys i'm back with another post. I thought I would write this kind of post because lately I've been struggling with the comparison game, who has better photos, and the Instagram algorithm in general. Being a blogger is not easy because there is a lot of competition out there in the blogging community. If you're a blogger I bet you feel overwhelmed sometimes because it's a 7 day a week commitment. You know we all have those moments, but I enjoy blogging so much that I keep going. I'm very passionate about it, and I consider it my part time job. You know it makes me happy, until I see my numbers go down. That sounds so stupid but it's true. I never wanted to sit here and analyze how many comments I get on Instagram, but I am guilty of doing that. 

Don't get me wrong social media is awesome, and it really connects people together, but it can sometimes have a negative effect because you can get caught up in the comparison game. You may look at someone'…

Hello Fall

Hey guys I'm back with another post. Today I'm going to be talking about fall because this is my first fall look on my blog for the season.

I have been noticing in my town that it has been getting colder in the morning, and the temperature is mild in the daytime. I just love it. I really can't wait for the leaves to start changing colors too. It just seems like the leaves have been green forever!! I'm hoping to get some really cute fall photos this season with some fall scenery. My family might take a trip up to the mountains like how we did last year. The mountains are just so pretty during the fall, and I really hope we go! Also if you want to see what we did last year in the mountains here is the blog post link if you're interested. Mountain trip 2016 Fall

The next thing that i'm excited for is adding cute fall elements to my room. I bought a fall candle a couple weeks ago, and i'm just waiting to burn it. I don't want to get too excited too early. …

How to Paint Your Own Planter

Hey guys welcome to the first post of my series "At Home With Sugarcoatedbears". Today I thought I would paint my own planter that I have to hold a basil plant that I got recently. The planter before was just an average planter, just brown in color. But then I had the idea of painting the planter. So here is how I painted my planter, and how you can paint your own planter pretty easily. 

So for this DIY you're going to need a planter, a cup that you don't mind getting a little grungy(but you can also use anything that holds water pretty much), one piece of palette paper, a big paintbrush, a small paintbrush, and the paint that you want to use. 

So first go to fill up the water cup that way you can clean your brushes, and such. 

Next lay get a piece of palette paper, and place the paints that you're working with on there. Then after that, start to paint your planter. 

This was how my little basil plant looked after one coat of paint. But for this DIY project you …
