Happy Monday! Well summer isn’t over, but it does feel like it’s beginning to wind down to me. I have been hanging out with my horses a LOT for the past couple of months, thanks to a challenge I found.
But thanks to that challenge, I can say that I am truly enjoying being around my horses even more. Almost as much as Plezant enjoys searching my groom bag for a lost carrot.
And while I will be sad when summer is officially over, I am also one of those people who is completely obsessed with all things fall, and anything having to do with pumpkins! And I have been crafting a lot of pumpkins lately, trying to get a jump start on videos for my YouTube channel as well as my fall decorating!
Aren’t they adorable?
And I have been doing a little bit of shopping with purpose lately. And what I mean by that is, I am shopping minimally, but I have also been doing a little more window shopping. Do you ever window shop? I LOVE to shop! I know, that’s no secret. But the thrill of getting a great deal is what really gets me excited. And here are 10 things that I have been loving lately…..
Oh my goodness! Isn’t this the cutest mug ever? Just perfect for sipping some hot cocoa and cuddling up under a warm blanket. This adorable coffee mug holds 16oz and is a ceramic campfire Style Mug, and it’s dishwasher safe.
Lately I have been on a kick with trying different cheeses, spreads, and crackers. Actually fruit too. I have been eating more fruits and veggies. I am like my horses, and I like to graze. And having something like this charcuterie board would make presenting said cheese and fruit look amazing. It is 15.5″ by 10″ in size, and has 2 indentations on the sides so you can arrange crackers, or whatever you like. It would also make a great gift!
I have been on the hunt for the perfect long sleeve shirt for riding for a long, long time now. And this t-shirt is exactly what I have been looking for! It is ‘tech’ material, aka polyester. Bit that means it doesn’t stick to you while you are busy working, and sweating. I have a project that I want to personalize a long sleeve t-shirt for myself, and this is so perfect! And it comes in many different colors! So depending on how my project turns out, I may be buying more!
With the summer sun, heat, and dry air of Colorado – I need my lip balm. And Burt Bees lip balm really delivers and keeps my lips protected and hydrated. Add in a little bit of color – and I am sold! The lip balm is naturally moisturizing thanks to the Shea butter and botanical waxes in their formula. And it costs a lot less than a fancy tube of lipstick!
I have been using my Cricut machine a lot lately. And I have wanted to upgrade to the Cricut Maker Cutting Machine for a while now. And I finally did it! Oh my goodness, this machine is incredible! And believe it or not – it is very easy to use. Even though I am not a professional, this machine is the ultimate in professional-level cutting performance and versatility! The machine cuts 300 materials, from the most delicate fabric and paper to matboard and even leather. It also includes a rotary blade for specialty cutting. This truly is an incredible machine for hundreds and hundreds of projects!
I am loving this hoodie! I love sweatshirts – but I love the zip up style even more. And this hooded zip up jacket has everything that I love. It’s a mid weight jacket which is so handy to have at the barn. It’s also washable. So all of that horsey dirt and pony kisses on your sleeve will be easily washed away.
Talk about getting ready for cuddle weather! I found this Decorative Faux Fur Throw on Amazon, and I am in love! It is SO beautiful! I am getting ready to update my bedroom in anticipation of the changing of the season, and this throw blanket will be at the foot of our bed. I have been searching for an affordable faux fur throw for several years now, and I think I have finally found what I have been searching for.
And I have been searching for extra storage for my craft room, along with a place to give my new Cricut Maker a home. And this is the perfect addition to my craft room! Not only does it offer a place to keep my cricut, but look at all of the extra storage! One thing I have learned about crafting – it takes a lot of different supplies to make something. So having easy accessible storage is key to keeping a space organized, and clutter free. And this Rolling Cart is awesome! I can keep my supplies organized with 8 small and 4 large drawers. It also includes a fabric side pocket organizer for even more storage space along with a sturdy steel tabletop. I am so excited!

And just think how this could be used in a tack/feed room? This rolling cart was the best option I found on Amazon, and it had the lowest price – making me ultra happy!
Ok, if you haven’t watched the epic TV series Yellowstone – you won’t get it. But for those of you who do – don’t you just love this? Well I do. So I had to get it. This Train Station Tour T-Shirt is awesome! I get a cool t-shirt to wear, and promote my favorite television series as of late.
I know I have talked about this before, but I love this groomer so much – SO much! And I think my horses do as well. And I have seen it advertised on Facebook, and other places for twice as much as I got it from Amazon. This curry comb has been a game changer for my boys. They absolutely love the massage. And I love the way it gently gets down deep to their skin, getting rid of the deep down dirt and debris. I use this curry every time I groom my horses, and I think their coats reflect it.
Plezant has never looked better. And even my retired friend Frisby. They both really enjoy the curry time, and I love how awesome they look!
Window Shopping Via The Internet
How was that for giving you some ‘window shopping’? Pretty fun right? This gives you a little glimpse into my every day life, and what I look for when I am shopping. And maybe a little behind the scenes look of how I come to my purchasing decisions. I always want high quality, because I want to get the best bang for my buck. But I also want to get a good deal. And with a little research and hunting, I am able to fulfil both of those things.
How about you? what things are you window shopping for?
