Aventura in Provo Canyon

October 1, 2017

Isn't fall every Blogger/Instagrammer/Basic's favorite season? Just go ahead and throw me in that category, because after seeing these gorgeous colors in Provo Canyon I could just die! It was pretty chilly outside, so I was glad I layered this henley top and vest from Aventura Clothing.

Aventura Clothing has such great options for the outdoorsy woman! I've got bonfires, tailgates, and pumpkin patch visits planned for these clothing pieces; and I can't wait :)

Unboxing the September Bless Box

September 29, 2017

Does anyone else just love getting mail? It's gotten to the point where Ryan will save his packages, and let me open them :) Luckily this box had me written allll over it, and I couldn't wait to bust open this adorable Bless Box

The box art was done by this talented young artist Giana, I can't get over how cute it is! Sazan, creator of The Bless Box, partnered with Lauren Bushnell from The Bachelor to create this summer to fall transition beauty & lifestyle box. This is the first month where Bless Gives Back is matching contributions by members; where they will donate everything raised to the month's chosen charity! 

I got tons of fun goodies in this box {check out the full list here}; my favorites being the Stila Matte'ificient Lipstick in √Čtoile, Stila Stay All Day Lip Liner in Ros√©, and the RealHer Eyeshadow Palette in I Feel Beautiful. 

I'm so excited to try out all the products in this box, I'm already snacking on the coconut chips! This is such a great subscription box because of the quality of products and overall value. Check out how you can get next months box here :)

MyHeritage DNA: Getting Started

September 26, 2017

Ryan and I have always been curious about our ancestry, and what that means for our future kids. We know that Ryan's dad grew up in Mexico, but we don't know much more through that line of the family. He's been bugging me to do a DNA kit for a while, so when MyHeritage reached out I asked for 2 kits! That way we have an idea of what our future family will be made of :)

It was an easy to process to follow with vials, swabs, packaging and step-by-step instructions in the box. Make sure to not eat anything for an hour leading up to it! Ryan accidentally ate a banana so we had to wait another hour so it didn't come back that he is 60% banana haha 

What we do know is that I'm of German and Icelandic descent, and that Ryan is Mexican and Finnish.  Such an interesting combination, right? We are both really excited to see what the results are! 

If you want to try this out for yourself, use the free shipping code MHBREEZYDAYS. Right now MyHeritage is doing a special offer of dropping the price to $69 until October 2nd! Stick around for a results post coming soon!
