She's an Akron photographer and a few of her photos were taken in my neighborhood, which I love. I'd definitely like to buy some of her prints for my apartment.

I love how whimsical the bottle is, it definitely stands out on the wine shelf (I know it says hard cider, but the back actually calls it an apple wine, which is what it tastes like). The colors are bright and vibrant plus the bottle is 100 percent recyclable - I think mine's going to be recycled into a flower vase. I picked mine up at Giant Eagle and they also had flavors like raspberry and peach.

It's the Mr. Sneeze forehead thermometer (available from The Spoon Sisters right here) - it's easy to use and it's the perfect size to throw in your bag, just in case. Just place the strip against your forehead and a green color will appear in the box that indicates your temperature. It's like a mood ring, for your fever. Besides, who doesn't love the Mr. Men (and Little Miss) series?

1. Headbands - I'm a big fan of headbands and I really think they can add that extra sparkle to your outfit in a simple way. (Pictured headband from American Apparel)
2. Scarves - A really easy way to dress up your normal jeans and T-shirt combo and it would also look great at work. I love versatility. (Pictured scarf from New York and Company)
3. Shoes - I love TOMS and when I saw these on their website, I thought they would be the perfect fall shoes. What a great way to kick up your look a notch.
4. Bags - You can always use another bag, right? Well, why not make this one metallic and put some shine into those gray fall days. (Pictured bag from Gap)

I love the Ohio band Relient K, they remind me of a simpler time in my life. Here is the band's new album of covers. They're silly and just perfect for fun.
"Inside of Love" (originally performed by Nada Surf)

Women's Health Magazine had them as a teaser on their homepage. They're beef empanadas and they're also one of five healthy and simple Mexican recipes on the magazine's site. I'm really excited to make them for dinner tonight (along with some yellow rice and guacamole) - they use very simple ingredients you probably already have on hand and they only take about a half hour to make from start to finish. ¡Qué rico!
Update: These were really easy and quick to make - and absolutely delicious! Definitely a keeper!
(Check out the recipe after the jump . . .)

I can't wait to add this print to our apartment decor. It's made by April Bleakney (aka APE MADE) and along with a lot of really great screenprints on canvas, her Etsy shop also has her designs on T-shirts, tote bags and coasters. Here are a few of my other favorites from her, but be sure to check out her Etsy shop for more fun Ohio stuff!
