Fall Favorites 2015 : Sponsored by Naked Juice

As I am sure you've noticed by now- Fall is here. While I am always excited about Fall, the adventures, sun and memories of this summer are hard to let go. I've had an amazing summer. Maybe one of the best yet! Fall is here and its time to switch gears. 

As you know, I am a Naked Juice contributor and thanks to them, I have brought you some of my favorite items to get ready for fall. I also already got my first cold of the season (thank you person is seat 20 C on my plane!) so my favorite cold remedies are included. Let me know if you have a favorite Fall item- I'm always in the mood to try something new. 

Let's get started! 

First- obviously! The Super Blood Moon we had over the weekend. How stunning was that?? I loved watching the changes during the eclipse as well. So neat!

As Fall weather starts to roll in, one of the additions to my purse is hand lotion. My hands get really dry as the weather changes. This one by Soap and Glory is AMAZING, it contains shea butter, macadamia oil and MARSHMELLOWS. I love the smell and its not too greasy- good for on the go. You can pick this up at Target, Sephora or Ulta. 

Next for my colds, I am loving these medicinal teas by Traditional Medicinals. They are the best for helping right when cold symptoms start AND during your cold. I love the Throat Coat, its the best for sore throats. 

Next is a breakfast favorite. Pumpkin Flax Granola from Natures Path. It's healthy but also the pumpkin gives the fall feeling. A good wake me up! 

To go along with the granola, I am loving Naked Juice Chia Cherry Lime and Chia Sweet Peach. Each bottle contains 10,000 chia seeds full of Omega-3s, fiber, calcium and iron. I don't eat a TON of meat so I love getting these nutrients elsewhere. Thank you Naked for supplying these amazing juices! 

Last but certainly not least, I am LOVING my GoPro. I have the Hero4 Silver. I have been taking it on all my adventures too. It's so much fun and nice to have less worry than my DSRL because its waterproof! Check out my adventures on my youtube channel. Lots of videos coming up. 

Here is one of my latest videos of my trip to Maine. Check it out! 

Thanks again to Naked Juice for sponsoring this post and supplying me with the juices! This is my favorite flavor yet! Happy Fall everyone.

Top Knot Travels : Mckenzie River : Oregon

Top knot travels- ha isn't that hilarious! Since I always have my hair up in a bun (or top knot as D calls it), I thought this would be a good name for my travel posts.

This summer has been chalk-full of adventures and I'm not mad about it. It had been quite awhile since I had taken a trip on my own. There is something cleansing about traveling on your own. You are left with your own thoughts for an extended amount of time. It helps center me. It's a restart. This trip in particular was hard because there was no cell service- (tough life I know!) but it made me feel much more "off the grid."

I had often heard tails of this amazing stretch of road in central Oregon. The Mckenzie River and the highway that winds and bends with it. Let me tell you, this is amazing country. It's sleepy, it's humble, and yet stunning. There were surprises and breath taking views every where I seemed to end up. If you haven't gone exploring in this area of Oregon, it's SO worth it. I also found myself and quaint little cabin right along the river. It was damn near perfection.

Looking through these pictures again made me miss that unassuming wonder of Oregon. Enjoy, I sure did.

Adventure on!
