Episode 005: It's a fall spectacular!

It's the first day of fall! Let's have a fall themed podcast to celebrate, shall we?

We start the party talking about Maggie's freshly launched BLOG, The Spread! She'll feature one original recipe, one lovely around the table podcast post, and a local restaurant each week. You should definitely check it out and follow along!

Alternate post titles: was that a burp? / are leggings pants? / in a flurry of pins - so basically, you have a lot to look forward to when you listen to the episode!

Other notes of note from this episode:

In light of Maggie's blog launch, Jacey wanted to prepare her with some  common food blog comments. THIS IS SO FUNNY.

We may not need back to school supplies anymore, but business ladies need office supplies, right?!? When Target looks like Ross, we're in trouble.

Jacey's favorites:

Maggie's favorites:

  • Notes app (anyone else need it to have lines?)
  • Coffee thermoses
  • portable file folders

Fall food is the best:

  • Maggie is all about squash, pumpkin, and game meat. Is delicata a type? Google confirmed yes.
  • Try hollowing out a sugar pumpkin with caramelized red onions, gorgonzola and walnuts and bake it! You can also fill your hollowed pumpkin with this delicious soup recipe.
  • Jacey's fall staples are curried lentil soup and roasted vegetables.
  • Did you know about toasting spices?
  • Pumpkin granola, pumpkin smoothies and banana bread smoothies.

Fall outfits, also the best:

  • ThredUP is an online consignment store, and a great option for paring down your closet for a capsule wardrobe, or anytime.
  • Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. Learn more about Stitch Fix on Jacey's blog.
  • Shout out to Valerie (@hellovallarina) for telling me (Jacey) about Un-fancy, the website where I got all my info to build my capsule wardrobe.
  • If you feel overwhelmed by your closet or shopping, or like you overspend on clothes but still feel like you have nothing to wear, a capsule wardrobe might be for you!
  • Having fewer decisions is huge for me, which is why I love the capsule approach.

Pressing questions: Can you wear white after Labor Day? Are leggings pants? Is animal print a neutral?
