Favorite Items To Welcome Fall

I love the fall. It’s a time to cozy up and slow down, which is always welcome in my book. I like to enjoy all the things that fall has to offer like candles, blankets, and all the beautiful reds and oranges that are scattered across the sky. Not to mention it is a nice break from all the humidity and heat that comes from summer. I feel like to me as I get older fall becomes more and more about a time to unwind and really relax and enjoy the moment. Fall always used to be a time of stress as I shuffled off to school and then college, but now I get a moment to breath in the crisp air and really sit and enjoy the transition from summer to winter. Here are some items that I’m looking forward to enjoying and unwinding with this fall.

Looking forward to fall

  1. Sam Edelman ‘Paige’ Fringed Ankle Booties. I bought these during their half yearly sale and can’t wait to try them out this fall! Similar style from Target.
  2. Anthropologie Backstory Tee. Again got this on sale and can’t wait to wear it! Similar.
  3. David’s Tea Peanut Butter Cup. I love tea in the fall – this is a new fall flavor from David’s Tea that sounds delicious! Perfect in this mug.
  4. Threshold Herringbone Throw from Target. So soft and cozy!
  5. Marshmallow Fireside 3-Wick Candle from Bath and Body Works. My all time favorite fall candle from BBW.
  6. Fox Socks from Target. Gotta keep those toes warm too!

May Favorites

Wowa, where did May go? What is this? How can it be June already?? This June is going to be a good one for us. We have lots of fun summer plans in the books that we will be sure to bring you along for the journey. First on our big June plans is moving – we are moving apartments on the first and are very excited, and a little bit freaked out about how much stuff we have. How do two people accumulate so much stuff? Please, tell me, I would really like to know. Is it Target? It’s Target, isn’t it… Anyways, we also are planning a few trips down to Cape Cod this summer and will probably go for a long weekend as soon as we are settled in our new place. Exciting things on the horizon! But, this is all in the month to come and we are here to talk about what we loved in May. I’ll admit we weren’t loving much, (besides Uhaul and their cheap prices on boxes) but we managed to come up with a few things that we enjoyed throughout the month.

May favorites

Food: Well here we are again with popcorn as one of our favorites. You best get used to it because we eat a lot a lot of popcorn. We are always trying new brands and new flavors we see (so long as they are still pretty healthy and light). We have always loved the Lesser Evil brand but never tried their Himalayan Sweetness kind. We bought our first bag at Whole Foods and sort of forgot about it until we went to NH for the weekend and bought another bag of it there. Let me tell you we went through that whole bag in one night just the two of us and had to go out and buy 2 more bags the next day. We are LOVING it. Salty and sweet and light and delicious! Wow.. I had a lot to say about that popcorn, maybe we should just leave it at that? Nahh

Also for food, we have both been enjoying Tea pops from David’s Tea. It is basically strong brewed tea that is then poured over an ice cold glass of seltzer. We have been experimenting with making them at home and made a really delicious one that involved their root beer tea from last year and coconut seltzer. Sounds odd, but they are really good!

Books: I absolutely am loving The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. I was hooked after the first page I read and haven’t been able to put it down since. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a gripping novel for the summer.

TV: We shamelessly watch The Bachelorette and are super stoked for the current season that just started. It is already full of such drama, loveit! We are playing along to The Bach Fantasy with Rose’s coworkers so we got some serious stakes for this show. We take our Bachelorette seriously #noshame.

Clothes: Rose is laahhving these pants from Loft. She got them in navy and has worn them a bunch already. They are appropriate for work but also comfy; A good purchase all around!

April Favorites

Hello May! I hope everyone has had a splendid start to this month, I know we have over here. We thought we would stop by and share what we were loving in April as May is already almost half way through, better late than never!

So, what have we been loving this past month you ask?

April Favorites.001

For food it has been all things smoothie bowls. Both Rose and I have been eating them like they are going out of style. We have particularly been loving throwing some spinach into them and frozen mango. Top it up with some granola and what a delicious breakfast!

Now that spring is here and the fruit is fresher, we cannot stop buying the huge family size pack of strawberries at the store and eating every last one of them. We have even been adding them to our smoothie bowls, yum!

Lastly, for an afternoon treat, we’ve been munching on this bar nonstop. It has been my go to chocolate of choice lately. It is so soft and creamy and just melts right in your mouth. Plus, it’s from David’s Tea which is such a fun store to peruse and buy too much tea you don’t need.

For makeup/skin care Rose has been loving her Maybelline Color Whisper in Plum Prospect. It is a fun bright color for spring. I have been loving this face mask from Mario Badescu. It makes my feel skin soft and fresh after a day of wearing makeup.

For clothes, I have been wearing my Toms non-stop this season. It still is too soon to wear sandals so Toms are a good in-between wear, especially on days I have to walk a lot.

For books/movies we both loved loved loved Big Hero 6. It was so cute and funny! We are itching to watch it again. In terms of books, I absolutely loved We Are All Completely Besides Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. I thought it was a great read and now I’m making Rose read it so we can discuss it.

That’s it lovies! Check back shortly for some new posts and I hope you all enjoy the month of May!
