Fall Favorites 2015
First off, fall is my favorite season. I love that the weather is finally getting cooler and this is the season of football, family, and fun! I have made a list of a few of my fall favorites inspired by my favorite YouTuber, Jaclyn Hill!
I am so in love with Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works! It is such a warm scent and the description is spot on: “Gather ’round the bonfire with toasted marshmallows, smoky woods and sweet vanilla”. MMM So yummy. Every time I burn it, I just want to go camping and make smores.
I have a very close second favorite candle that I randomly found sitting on a Halloween Decor aisle in Target. I can’t seem to find it anywhere online either, which makes me almost think that God put this candle there just for me to find. It is truly a little piece of heaven. It is the Nature’s Wick three scented candle with Pumpkin Nutmeg, Bonfire Nights, and Vanilla Dolce. I’m going to be real honest when I say I am not a huge fan of Pumpkin scented things, but this candle has the perfect hint of pumpkin that isn’t overwhelming. I am also kind of obsessed with the wood burning wicks that makes the crackling noise. If the Nature’s Wick and Marshmallow Fireside scent had a collaboration, I would be burning through candles so fast, they wouldn’t be able to make them fast enough.
Duh, of course it’s Starbucks. While I know every Basic Girl is obsessed with the Pumpkin Spice Lattes or PSL in girl world, it just doesn’t do anything for me. The first time I tasted the Toasted Graham Latte however, I could have sworn I heard an angel choir singing “Hallelujah” in the back seat…or maybe it was just Luke crying mad that the car had stopped going through the drive thru. Either way, it is just that drink that makes you feel all warm inside and makes your day better! It is a struggle living less than a mile from a DRIVE THRU Starbucks (best invention ever) to go in moderation and I try to treat myself every once in a while. Some of my reasons for “treating myself”: Mondays, Inspection Days, Days I drop Luke off at Grandma’s house, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.
I really need to get a rewards card there…
Favorite Clothing Item
My boots! Cowboy Boots, Riding Boots, Black High Heel Boots… I pair them with dresses, leggings, jeggings or jeans. I am also guilty of wearing them with yoga pants and a long top so you can’t tell that they are actually yoga pants. (I was pregnant at the time–I consider that a legit excuse!)
I bought these boots in black last year before going to Vegas and now they are even cheaper and in brown too. I think I might be making an online order soon…(plus I have a $10 off coupon), Thanks DSW!
Favorite Halloween Costume
Favorite Thanksgiving Food
My grandma’s stuffing is probably the best thing ever. I can’t eat enough of that stuff (pun intended). I also love sweet potatoes with the marshmallows, pecans and brown sugar baked on top. Can’t wait for Thanksgiving!!
