Fall Essentials

Fall is back and amazing! I am so happy and have found some wonderful fall must haves!

Hello, Fall! Welcome back, I have sure missed you!

I don’t believe I am the only person who has missed this glorious season! I spent last Sunday cleaning out my closet, replacing all my summer items with fall and winter clothes and shoes. It sure feels good to look in my closet and see long-sleeved shirts, sweaters and jackets filling the racks.

In addition to preparing my closet for fall, I am also the kind of person who enjoys seasonal cleaning. My apartment also received an overhaul a few weeks ago as well.

So, without further wordiness here are my fall must-haves (for the moment)!

Flannel Sheets 
I recently picked up some cozy flannel sheets similar to these! Although they make it harder to crawl out of bed, they are definitely a must-have for me! Bonus, they are on sale!

Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket

I bought this jacket when it was on sale a couple years ago along with this Patagonia pullover. It is probably my most worn jacket. I am never cold when walking between classes because the sweater material on the outside and the fleece-like inside does amazingly at keeping the wind out.

Leaves Candle from Bath & Body Works

There is no candle that compares to “Leaves.” Growing up, my mother would burn this candle at the start of fall into winter. The fragrance, which I just found out is Crisp Red Apple, Golden Nectar and Warm Clove Spice, just sings cozy evenings curled up with a good book.

Hot Apple Cider Tea

Because I am so clearly obsessed with smells, this hot apple cider tea is perfect to warm you up and create a beautiful aroma. It tastes just like apple cider and is naturally caffeinated, a win-win in my book!

Gluten-Free Donuts

I am a total sucker for donuts, which does not settle well with my gluten intolerance. However, I recently found these Kinnikinnick Gluten-Free Donuts! Win, Score & Holla! Although not the most inexpensive gluten-free dessert, they taste exactly like normal donuts! I found them in the freezer in health food section of my local Dillons Kroger store. But the Kinnikinnick website has some more flavors like Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon Sugar and Maple Glazed!

Falling into fall

Leaves…the only smell of fall!

Leaves candle, Bath & Body Works

If I would not have accidently swiped left…on Snapchat, not Tinder, then I never would have known last Thursday, September 22nd, was the first day of fall.

 

Thank you, Starbucks for the deception when you brought back the PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte for those of you who just are as basic as I am) and making me think fall started 2 weeks ago. Not cool!

However, I am okay with the PSL making a comeback, as well as the holy grail of Starb’s drinks: the Salted Caramel Mocha!

I love fall! Not only are the falling leaves beautiful but fall, although all too short, means simple days and family events are soon to come.

And if there is one smell that encompasses those two things, family and falling leaves, it would have to be the Bath and Body Works candle, Leaves.

It is subtle yet homey feeling. I brought it out a couple weeks ago while cleaning and my roommate was obsessed.

Hurry and get them before they’re gone because they always seem to sell out quickly. I know I will be stocking up and ordering a few online because they are currently only $12.50 for the 3-wick!!!
