last night: Outlets At Orange Fall Tweetup

last night i had the pleasure of attending The Outlets at Orange Fall Tweetup event.

a group of OC social media influencers were invited to gather and get a look at the newest fall styles hitting The Outlets!

that's my tweet on the screen!

throughout the Tweetup we had fun shopping all the gorgeous new styles in each store, tasting delicious snacks from Sweets From Heaven, Doubletree (cookies!!), Corner Bakery, Jamba Juice -to name a few- and of course, tweeting!

here are some pictures from the event:

candy and treats!

we saw bright colored jackets and coats galore, structured bags in rich materials, cozy sweaters and cardigans, and plenty of sales. fall is definitely celebrated at The Outlets At Orange!

thanks to  for helping me out with my outfit idea at Calvin Klein!

this tweeted outfit from Banana Republic won me a giftcard (here's that tweet)

save some money on produce - grow it yourself!

gardening is a hobby of mine.  i wish i could say i grow a lot of, even a quarter of the produce i consume but the reality is that's just not possible, especially in my small OC condo's patio space.  still i am surprised by what i can grow - sometimes without purchasing anything extra!

here's a post from The Healthy Hybrid's Facebook page with 15+ foods you can grow from produce scraps:

...currently i have the following growing in my patio-space: pineapple plant (from scrap), sweet potatoes (from scrap), potatoes (from scrap), onions (from scrap), garlic (from scrap), shallot (from scrap), green onion (from scrap), as well as other plants and herbs from store-bought seed.

growing produce is a fun activity for the family!  it also might save you a bit of money here and there.  enjoy!
