Spot on for Cheetah Print

My favorite thing about Fall and Winter is definitely the clothing. I am not a fan of the cold or the snow, but I love sweaters, boots, and jackets. And since we are finally starting to get Fall-like weather on the East Coast, I recently did a huge Shein haul. So make sure you are following me on Instagram or LiketoKNOWit. I’ll definitely be posting some looks on Instagram and what doesn’t make it to the gram will be on LiketoKNOWit. Last week, I shared with you my take on this split front leopard skirt from Shein. Animal prints are totally on-trend this season, so this week I am covering CHEETAH. I love a good tie blouse, so when you combine that with a colorful cheetah print, I am all in. As soon as I saw this Cheetah Tie Neck Blouse, I immediately added it to my wishlist on Shein.…

fALL About Leopard Print

Fall has returned and so have I, in leopard print. Leopard print is once again super popular this season. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I ruptured my Achilles back in April. So I ended up taking an unplanned, extended break from blogging to focus on healing my foot and making sure my mental health didn’t suffer.

It was especially hard for me because I am used to being independent, so not being able to do the things I could normally do easily was crushing. Thankfully my loving mom came to stay with me for a couple of months and nurse me back to health. But now my foot is 85% healed and I am back to blogging. While home recovering, I did a LOT of shopping. Shein has taken…

And since the amount of activity I can do has dropped drastically, I’ve got to watch my calorie intake. While my mom is here helping me out, she, of course, wants to make everything from scratch. And I don’t mind at all. We came up with this Asian Cabbage Salad with a warm spicy peanut dressing after being inspired by one of the bag salads I’ve been eating and my mom’s love to combine fruit with salad.

Savory Potato, Sausage & Broccoli Breakfast Casserole

Funny fact about me, I would never volunteer to make anyone breakfast, especially the basics like eggs and pancakes. Simple breakfast foods just aren’t my expertise.
