2018 Top 8 Fall Favorites

Friday, October 12, 2018

Back in early September, as I was rambling on and on about something Fall related, Texan commented about how I was so ready for Fall. The comment took me by surprise. Not because I don’t enjoy decorating and getting ready for the upcoming holiday season, but because Fall and Winter are my least favorite seasons.  

That’s a little harsh I suppose, but as the days get shorter it does something to my mind. I could swear to you that the sun never peaks out from behind the endless layer of grey clouds in the winter. The weather gets fairly cold and I basically never want to leave my house. Kinda gloomy for somebody who was ready for Fall in early September, right?! 

So, to combat those unavoidable seasonal changes (minus the whole sun thing – I'm sure I’ve seen the sun in the winter) I purposely spice up the colder months to make myself happy. Our house is filled with fun seasonal decorations, laughter from friends as we host many holiday parties and all kinds of fun bucket list day dates! 

Today I actually wanted to share my Fall favorites with y'allThey are in no particular order, just what came to mind as being a “can’t live without” fall favorite. Hope y’all enjoy! 

1. Fall in Love Vermont Maple Coffee 
I found this at Marshalls and I’m so glad I did. I will totally get into the Pumpkin Spice thing every once in a while, but stores have made it a little over-rated. This Vermont Maple coffee is perfect if you want to take a break from Pumpkin everything but still enjoy a Fall flavor! 

2. Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer 
So, I couldn’t get away from Pumpkin Spice completely! I caved and bought this creamer when I was shopping for my work coffee creamer. It’s actually pretty good. I have to remind myself to slow down and sip the coffee to enjoy the flavor and not just drink it for the caffeine. 

3. Apple Pie/Apple Cider 
Texan loves my apple pie (as do I) so when we saw local apples at the roadside Farmers Market the other weekend, we picked up a few apples to make a pie. I don’t actually make my own cider but I love to drink it this time of year. I’m pretty much love anything apple when they start coming into season! 

5. Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Palette 
So far this season, I’ve been loving the Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Palette in Fever (it’s been called a dupe for the Naked Heat palette). It has beautiful warm tones that are super blendable. I basically can’t get enough of it! 

6Taupe-less Beach 
I have been rocking OPI Taupe-less Beach. Gorgeous grey that has been perfect for our fairly warm Fall season! 

7Fall Scented Everything! 
Even though I know all of the bad “stuff” that can be in the Bath and Body Works candles, I just can’t seem to stay away. Autumn has been my current favorite candle. In an effort to move to healthier candles, I’ve been trying to reach for Yankee Candles Harvest Wreath and Autumn Leaves.  

8Yankee Candle Accessories 
Last year a good friend at work was selling things from Yankee Candle for her daughter’s fundraiser so I purchased a few candle holders for Fall. They didn’t come in until mid-December so I couldn’t decorate with them last year but I love how they look sitting out on my end tables this year! 

What has been your Fall favorites this year? Is anything a repeat favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
