August is over! Which means Summer is pretty much out the door. It has been a pretty crazy one as well - with starting a new job & improving as it goes into Summer and reaching one year away from Virginia, it's been pretty weird. I've felt out of my element, I didn't get as much done as I'd like to, and I sorta let time slip by but sometimes you just have to live & go with the flow. However I will say this past Spring/Summer I sort of just let things happen rather than made things happen. So that needs to be taken care of! But September is here, a fresh new season, a fresh new start - here's what I'm wishing for:
Glade Fall Hayride Candle - So I already have this & it literally fills the house with a fall fragrance! They were two for $5 at Meijer & I scooped the last two up. I've been burning them for the past 5 days & will have to pick up more soon. I'm super impressed with the fragrance & how it fills the room. I love candles but the ones that fill your house with fragrance are often super expensive. So I pair them with other either unscented candles or cheaply scented ones so I can have that candle lit glow with out spending a zillion dollars or good candles. After all one or two of these glad ones will fill a room, no need to burn more than you have to!
Candy Corn - You may have seen my picture on Instagram of candy corn (in fact I think I posted two pictures!). I am so excited that fall is around the corner. Candy corn is one of my favorite candies & they look so pretty in a container together.
Big Sweaters - The other day Zach brought me home a rocking chair for the front porch. I'm so excited to enjoy the fall weather in the morning - sitting outside, wrapped in a huge & comfy sweater, sipping my coffee, enjoying our view. I want the nice crisp fall weather to last! Comfy sweaters just make the season so much more delightful.
Boots - I love boots, I'm a boots gal. I love the style of these & am on the hunt for a low heeled boot. All of mine are short, cowboy-esque boots. Once this crisp weather hits, you'll see me in boots until spring. They are my favorite shoe!
An Upgrade - I believe I have an upgrade on my phone plan but I'm holding off because I'm waiting to see if there's going to be a new iPhone release in September. Then I can get my hands on a new case too!
Magnetic Make up Storage - On Monday I posted my DIY magnetic palette but I'm thinking I might upgrade to the Z palette system. My DIY version has worked great, but as you can see I'm running out of room for eyeshadows! I don't want to have a whole bunch of mismatched palettes in my collection so I might upgrade to a real Z palette. Or at least keep experimenting with different DIY versions I can make to match over time.
Toffee Nut Latte - For a lot of you Starbucks drinkers out there it's not Fall until you've had your first Pumpkin Spice Latte, but for me it's not fall until I've had my first Toffee Nut Latte! While these are available all year - they are yummy in a frapicino! - I try to reserve them for Fall, just because they taste like Christmas to me.
What are you looking forward to this Fall? Any cooler weather traditions to keep?
