Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year! It’s the one season I look forward to all year long; the leaves start changing, the weather cools off a little, pumpkin & apple picking, etc. Decorating for fall has always been my favorite thing to do (& Christmas!). Today I’m sharing with you my fall front porch decor as well as my go-to fall outfit- a bodysuit, skirt, & OTK boots. Riley has finally made her debut on the blog. She is such a beautiful brown/copper color and I love it!

Today I woke up with a cold which is the only downside of colder weather. I’m also super excited because my husbands desk finally came in so he no longer has to work on our dining room table or a foldable table! Can’t wait to finally set our office up completely!

What’s your week looking like? Do you love the fall weather? What’s your favorite thing about fall?

Xo,

Nina

One of my top requested posts is a “what’s in your bag” post, so I figured, why not?! I go into detail about what I am carrying and my thoughts on all the items below:

Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM -Damier Ebene & MM Insert– This bag is just amazing. There is no other word to describe it. It fits so much, can be used for everyday or travel, and just so worth it. I always wanted a Louis but could never justify spending the money on it. I would go and look at it in a store or look online constantly but never take the plunge. My husband surprised me with this beauty for Christmas and I use it almost everyday now. I got the insert to put into the bag to keep everything neat and clean. I actually got the insert from the MM because I wanted it a bit smaller than the bag so that I can bring the sides in if I wanted to.

Small Nail Kit – I always keep this in my bag as a just incase. For the longest time, I always had gel extensions or manicures and sometimes they would easily break and I would have a sharp edge. I love carrying this with me just incase I need it.

Impressions Compact Mirror – I LOVE this mirror. I carry and have it with me at all times, even if I am using a smaller purse. I have the tabletop impressions mirror with blue tooth that I use when putting my makeup on, and wanted one to bring around with me. It has a touch screen where you can tap and the light comes on, so if it is night time and you need to check yourself you have light or if you just wanted some more bright light you have it here. I highly recommend this!

Jessica Simpson Sunglasses & MK Case – I had a pair of Michael Kor’s Aviator glasses that came with the beautiful white case (that is very dirty and hard to clean). Those glasses unfortunately broke while I was on my honeymoon in Bali in September, and while shopping for a new pair, I found these Jessica Simpson sunglasses that I am obsessed with. They are so cute and the perfect aviators that won’t make you go broke.

Black Toiletry Case Set & Apple Airpods– I adore this set. I am currently using the mid-size toiletry piece in my purse but was using the smaller one as well until I got the “Good Vibes Only” bag in the mail from ipsy. I use the large bag for my makeup when I travel, the midsize one for lipstick, lipgloss, medicine, etc, and the smallest bag for my electronics. I always carry a charger, and earphones with me wherever I go. The airpods are one of the best things ever invented. I love wireless headphones for the gym and work and never liked any that were on the market. I got these headphones when they first came out and use them everyday! I also always keep some chapstick, hair ties, and clips with me and store them in here.

Victoria’s Secret Travel Perfume – The scent I have in my purse is “Dark Angel” which they no longer carry. I have the “Bombshell Seduction” scent as well and bring it with me when I travel. It is currently on sale for $7.00!

Lipstick and Matte Lip – I always carry a lipstick and matte lip with me at all times. These are my two favorites and go-tos! The Mac “Velvet Teddy” meshes well with almost any outfit or any plans you may have. I have talked about the tarteist matte lips in my post herebut the “Rose Nude” is one of my staple lips that I carry with me.

Kate Spade Card Case – I forgot to include this in my main picture, but I also carry around my business card case. I never know when I will run into someone for potential business so I always have mine with me. I got this case in gold but they no longer have the gold available. It is super cute though and I always get compliments on it.

Ted Baker Pen & Case – I always like to carry pens and stuff with me but they always end up exploding all over my bag. My mother in law got me this and I love it. I think it is such a cute idea and love that I can store them away without bulkiness. I also like to carry around a little notebook and found this cute envelope one a while back at TJ Maxx.

Misc – Kleenex are a must for me and I always have a small pack with me. I usually buy them from the dollar store! If you cannot find them let me know and I will link them in. I also have a card case that I keep in my bag (the striped case) which holds all of my gift cards and coupons that receive in the mail. That way, if I am ever out and stop somewhere I have everything with me. And of course, I always have my wallet with me (not pictured but I linked the one I use) I left my wallet in my car so it didn’t make the picture.

Amazon Must-Haves

Amazon Must-Haves

  1. Fire TV Stick – I love the Fire stick. You plug it right into your tv and can stream your netflix, hulu, and other tv apps. It is a lot cheaper than items such as the apple tv and works very well!
  2. Nest Thermostat (3rd Generation) – Anyone else forgetful like me? I always forget to turn the air down before I leave the house and do not realize until we are already far away. With the Nest thermostat, you can set the temperature right from your phone! So, if you are like me and go away for vacation and start panicking wondering if you remembered to turn the air/heat down before you left, you can easily have a stress free vacation with this thermostat!
  3. Nest Indoor Security Camera  – I am huge on security and keeping my family, myself, and my home safe. Even before my husband and I closed on our home, I bought 2 of these to have and install when we did. They are indoor cameras and are amazing. Nest also makes outdoor, but I have not tried those. When someone walks past the cameras or they sense something and you have them on, you can set the app to get a notification sent directly to your phone. My husband and I set these to notify us when we are not home. I highly recommend them for home security.
  4. Silicone Apple Watch band – Anyone else have the Iwatch and love all of the colors of the sports bands but not want to spend $50.00 on each band is a little insane to me. I ended up buying this band in white, navy, gray, and turquoise and still want them all!
  5. I Phone Case – OK, this case is amazing!! I also have it for my ipad. It has a protective screen built in as well as an overall protective case. I ordered two extras for both my iphone and ipad as back-up just incase this company stops selling on amazon. It is amazing and easy to put on yourself.
  6. Lipstick Holder – I keep all of my lipsticks in this case. It keeps them in line and I can easily see the name or color based on which way I have them. It also comes in a black color but I love the clear so that I can see my lipsticks.
  7. Makeup Case – I posted about this herebut had to mention it again. My sister purchased this item for almost 6 times the price and they are exactly the same. I especially love this case for vacation because I can throw all of my makeup in it while getting ready and quickly pull the strings on the side to clean up my makeup and put it away in my bag!
  8. Makeup Brushes – I have bought these a few times and love them. They last a long time. The pair I am currently using have been going strong for about 6 months. I clean them and take extremely good care of them.
  9. Fusion Water Bottle – Anyone else love lemon in their water?! ME! I have also tried this with oranges and other fruit and it perfectly fuses the fruit into the water without worrying about the seeds. I have it and white and the teal color and love them.
  10. Apple Watch Charging Stand – If you have an apple watch, you need this! I am able to charge my watch without fear it will fall off my night stand and can charge all of my devices through the same system. It really is great.
  11. Soundbot Wireless Shower Speaker – Not sure about everyone else but I love to listen to music while I shower, but obviously hate bringing my phone anywhere near the shower in fear it will ruin. My husband bought this for me a few years ago and I use it every time I shower, I highly recommend it. The sound is really good and it worked perfectly. Plus, you cannot beat that price!
  12. Oval Makeup Brush – I use the largest one to put on my foundation and have ordered this set twice. I always see the “Artis” set but refuse to spend that kind of money on brushes. The brushes are good and perfect for the price.

Water & Wine – the start

Welcome to The Water & Wine Blog!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog! I came up with the title Water & Wine thanks to my husband. I wanted to create a place where people could come for fitness, beauty, overall wellness/health, fashion, recipes and travel. It has always been a passion of mine to create a safe, fun place for people to come find anything they need and ask whatever questions they want.

Water stands for the health, wellness, fitness, and the recipe aspect of my blog while Wine stands for the finer things such as beauty, fashion, and travel. I hope you find everything you need and more! Let me know down below in the comments what you want to see more of 🙂
