How I Decorated Our Kitchen for Fall

I love a good sprinkling of seasonal decor around the house. I’m not (at least, not yet) the type to go all out when it comes to making our home festive, but do love to add in a few elements to…

Things I'm Loving Lately

Saturday Style

A little weekend style inspiration for you! I love a good, classic outfit like this – striped tee, jeans, and sneakers. If I had to choose one type of outfit to wear forever, it would be some iteration of this.…

Happy Friday! It felt like a long week over here. With Mike’s “normal” fieldwork schedule, the days feel long. He didn’t get home until 7pm or later every night, so I had a lot of time to myself! After having…

Top Five from August

Adidas Sneakers This is the second color way that I have in these sneakers because they’re so comfortable! They’re great for pairing with athleisure outfits, wearing to spend the day walking around, and for low impact workouts. They’re super lightweight…

Lately On Instagram

  • Happiest in the kitchen 🤗 Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved spending time cooking and baking (and stealing bites while prepping, too!). My least favorite part? Figuring out what to make and creating a grocery list. That’s where @realhomechef has been a lifesaver for me! Since we’ve been using it regularly this year, I’m able to enjoy my time in the kitchen again and avoid the dreaded, “what do you want for dinner this week?” conversation. Every meal we’ve made is delicious and I’ve learned some new skills since utilizing their recipes! • If you’ve wanted to try it, you can use the link in my bio to order. Code LAURENB80 gets you $20 off your first 4 boxes, too 🙌🏻 #ad #hookedonhomechef
  • It’s looking like Fall in here 🍂 Added some seasonal decor to our kitchen and all I want to do is sit in here eating apple cider donuts and making chex mix - this season’s food is the best 🙌🏻 Sharing everything I added in today’s blog post • #liketkit  #thebownabode #ltkhome #falldecor
  • If you ask me, leopard is most definitely a neutral 👌🏻 Continuing to find ways to bring some fall colors and patterns into my wardrobe while still dressing appropriately for the weather. This outfit fits the bill! Also, great news: this pearl wrap bracelet is back in stock 👏🏻 outfit details: or via the link in my bio #liketkit #fallstyle #everydaymadewell
