homemade filled chocolates

There isn't a new video today {I'll be back with one next week!} so a fun little recipe will have to do!

I've always thought that making homemade chocolates, especially if they're filled, would be difficult. You need to temper the chocolate. You want them to be shiny. You hope they come out of the molds. You hope they come out of the molds without breaking!

With so many things to worry about, I put off making filled chocolates for a long time. A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to face my fears and just melt some chocolate and see how it goes. I had a silicone Disney ice cube tray laying around and decided that it would be the most perfect mold for my first attempt at homemade filled chocolate. If they didn't turn out, at least they were cute, right?

Jokes on me because homemade filled chocolate are the easiest thing in the world to make! So easy in fact that once you read through this recipe, you'll want to do it yourself.

When this post goes live, I'll be up in the air on my way to Disney World! I'm so excited for this trip and have been counting down the days. In case you didn't know, I have been a lover of all things Disney my entire life. There are pictures and videos of me at just three months old surrounded by everything Mickey Mouse.

I've been planning my outfits since we booked this trip so I wanted to share what I'm taking with me. It's a short trip so I'm just using my Away carry-on luggage, one of the best pieces of luggage I've purchased. I tried not to overpack and leave a little room for any souvenirs so there's quite a bit of extra room in there.

favorites from the shopbop sale

Is anyone else over summer temperatures? I've mentioned it before, but I'm not a fan of the spring and summer seasons. Give me autumn and winter days forever!

Mother Nature is struggling to realize that the first day of autumn was last week {a topic for another day...}, but Shopbop is having a great sale so that you can stock up on fall favorites now! The worst transition ever probably, but that's alright. You all get the point. There's a great sale at Shopbop! There's no time like the present to start stocking up on some everyday fall essentials like sweaters and scarves. I have a feeling that the weather is going to go from summer to fall without any sort of in between.

I perused the Shopbop website and picked a few of the things perfect for the season.

sweat proof makeup: tested & reviewed

Are you someone who wears makeup while working out? To be completely honest, I do. Not a lot! Just mascara. But lately, I've noticed with the popular athleisure trend has come a new trend for makeup specifically made to last through your HIIT workout.

The first that I ever tried was from Tarte. Their Lifted mascara didn't work for me, but their dry shampoo did {it's amazing}. And now, Clinique has a new line called CliniqueFIT. I put their workout mascara, plus a few others, to the test and had to share the results.

I always hear so many people talk about the workout leggings from Lululemon and Zella. And don't get me wrong, they're really nice! But have you tried the activewear from Athleta?

Athleta has been my go-to for workout clothes for several years now. I love everything from their joggers to their workout leggings to their dresses to their sweatshirts. I think their selection is just the best out there and it seems like not enough people have tried it out.

And now is the best time to check out their selections because their new releases are killing it! I picked out my favorites, including their new jeans...
