Fall is my favourite season. It’s the beginning of the two best holidays of the year (IMO). The leaves are changing colour, and all of the things I covet seem to be everywhere. Here are the things I am crushing on right now.
Hot Specialty Drinks
When the weather cools, I stock up on the most delicious hot drinks of the season. There’s coffee, tea, hot chocolate and apple cider to name a few. As recently as 10 minutes ago, I was enjoying Keurig’s new Green Mountain Hot Apple Cider. It’s tart and sweet and only 80 calories a cup. It’s made with real apples, a hint of cinnamon and the perfect amount of brown sugar and it contains NO artificial flavours or preservatives. It reminds me of hot apple pie.
I’ve attached a list of some recipes that you can try using the Green Mountain Hot Apple Cider as well. It’s available now in stores. I just grabbed myself a new box at Bed, Bath and Beyond yesterday.
Fun Nail Colours
Nail polish is such a great accessory. There are a lot of fun colours and lacquer companies have put out their own fall collections. A change of season is the perfect excuse to add a new nail colour to your arsenal. I think I’m going to go for something subtle and light with a little bit of sheen on my next shopping spree.
It is the season of pumpkin-spiced everything. There are hits and misses out there, but my absolute top pick for PSL-lovers is my very own Pumpkin Spice Latte Fudge. No good things come easy and it took me three tries to perfect this recipe and it is worth every failed attempt.
Going into fall, I take stock of things I accomplished and things I still want to do. Journals are a great way of keeping track of your thoughts, making lists and jotting down your dreams. Nanowrimo is also coming up in November so a journal can also keep ideas for your future novel safe.
And if you are going to write your dreams and goals in a book, why not choose one that motivates you. Here are the journals inspire me (found at Chapter’s).
A new season means new shoes — duh. Actually for me, sometimes a new week means new shoes but we’ll just talk about that addiction in a different post. Right now I’m in love with practically any boot that goes with a nice pair of jeans (and a sweater… did I mention I love sweaters yet?)
A cozy sweater is like one giant warm hug that lasts all day. I am most comfortable in sweaters and I love being warm. When I’m looking for a new sweater which, in my husband’s opinion, happens wa-hay too often, I stop by Value Village. You can find some nice sweaters for a fraction of the price. There is one sweater I am stalking (ha, I mean looking at) at Marks though. You can see it at https://www.marks.com/en/categories/womens/casual/tops/sweaters/product/fringe-cardigan-90430.html#90430%5Bcolor%5D=GREY if you’re curious.
So what are you waiting for, kick off your stylish new boots and get cozy on your couch in your warm sweater with a journal in one hand and your hot apple cider in your other, perfectly manicured grasp. That is the best way to spend a cool fall day.
