confessions, fall

Confession – I LOVE FALL

It’s September 23rd!!! IT’S FALL!!! It is also my dad’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Dad!  How cool would it be to be born on the first day of the best season of all?

It is no secret around these parts that I love fall and everything about it. I am excited for cool, crisp mornings with the fog lingering over the mountain. The crackling of the fireplace. The smell of the leaves as they change colors and fall from the trees. Football season is upon us. What is not to love?

All of the pictures below are clickable to take you to the link where I found them if you are looking for the recipe, store or what not.

Fall Fashion – I love fall colors! Jewel tones seam to suit my pale skin best and fall is all about some jewel toned things. I love metallic polishes, leggings, cute booties, and cozy sweaters.

Fall Scents – Anything pumpkin, marshmallow, spice, sandalwood or Leaves from B&BW is what my home smells like pretty much all of the time.

Fall Recipes – Pumpkins, and soups and chilis oh my!!!

Clean-Eating Maple Pumpkin Scones -- these taste like pumpkin pie for breakfast! SO easy & nearly 4g of protein!:

My favorite chili recipe


Fall Beverages – I love apple cider and hot chocolate.

Warm apple cider for adults Apple cider and smirnoff carmel vodka.. delicious!:

How To Make The World's Best Hot Chocolate. As if they didn't mention it enough in the article, you're gonna wanna add extra milk.:

Fall Decor – Pumpkins, burlap, leaves, pine cones, anything burnt orange or dark red. Basically all of the fall things. And don’t forget cozy blankets and throws!

Decorate your fireplace mantel with fall home decor in warm colors like orange and brown. #pumpkins #falldecor #homedesign:

I am not crafty but I would buy this pumpkin decorated like a football in a heartbeat!:

I love the way mercury glass looks lit up at night. So cozy!!!!

Fall Activities – Taking a drive when the leaves are just right, watching football, toasting marshmallows, visiting a pumpkin patch and baking fall treats are my favorite things!

I also love fall because we got married in November. Just look at nature’s beautiful backdrop for our wedding. We didn’t need anything, the trees provided it all!

What is your favorite thing about fall?

Linking up with Pinky and Katie Elizabeth

    I am really loving all the white pumpkins – perfect for a black monogram!
    Happy Birthday to your dad!

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization Actually September 23, 2015 at 9:24 am

    The weather! When it’s windy, and you feel energized just walking around outside! Also my fall clothes. Mine aren’t really jewel tones, but they are earthy/rustic colors. So I finally get to wear all my cozy long-sleeved shirts in camel, hunter green, and burgundy. And boots. Those have already ventured out of the closet, because I love them.

  • Reply laura September 23, 2015 at 9:31 am

    you need to come over and we need to make those football pumpkins —how cute!! and yes to all the fall clothes — nice forgiving leggings and oversized sweaters!

    Gah I love all the Fall scents, and (right now) wish for the fall weather to wear the fall clothes. However, I get over that as winter approaches! I love the glass pumpkin!

  • Reply Erin LFF September 23, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Your post rocks. I love EVERYTHING on here haha. We are candle-obsessed year round in our house, but fall scents top EVERYTHING. Leave and toasted marshmallow are faves of ours too! 🙂

    I totally love fall!! Your wedding picture is beautiful!!!

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter September 23, 2015 at 11:06 am

    Yes! Yes to all of this! I usually am a bit sad when Fall rolls around because it means the end of Summer. While, Summer is usually my fave, this year was a rough one for me and I so happy to see it go. I need to hang on my couch in sweatpants and eat chili and lick my wounds for a few months/years. Haha! Yay Fall!

  • Reply Heather September 23, 2015 at 11:07 am

    Yes to all things Fall!! I love the coziness and all the Football things. This season always makes me want to be in the kitchen and I can’t wait to try out some new recipes! Plus Fall fashion, even though it’s still hot is the best!

  • Reply Darcy September 23, 2015 at 11:37 am

    I don’t think there is anything bad about fall! I love fall scents especially — just picked up new candles this past weekend and I LOVE burning them!

    Oooo I LOVE that Essie color! I have had my eye on some gorgeous fall nail colors! Of course I love everything about fall, not the least of which is the FOOD! 🙂

  • Reply Kelli September 23, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    I’m with you on the hot chocolate and boots, other than that I’m not a big fall fan.

  • Reply Mattie September 23, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    My favorite thing about fall is also EVERYTHING. What a beautiful wedding picture! Seriously, fall is the perfect season to get married. For real.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis September 23, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    Love the color of the Essie nail polish. Do you know the name? It’s definitely not Fall weather here but that’s not stopping me from indulging in pumpkin everything especially beer.

  • Reply Morgan September 23, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Love that nail polish, those clothes, and pretty much every single picture you posted! So excited for FALL!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista September 23, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    Loving that Essie color and of course B&BW candles – the best! I made that caramel apple cider for the corn maze one year and it was DELISH! Happy B-day to your dad 🙂

  • Reply Amanda September 23, 2015 at 8:37 pm

    The clothes and decor/candles definitely top the list for me. There’s nothing better than snuggly clothing. NOTHING DAMMIT! Right now I’m burning a Pumpkin Gingerbread candle and it’s like pure heaven!

  • Reply September 24, 2015 at 8:25 am

    everything on this list. everything!! burning that candle right now 🙂

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo September 24, 2015 at 12:34 pm

    Hooray for fall!!! I love all the fall smells too, especially outdoors and the “scent” fall seems to have. Leaves is one of my favorite BBW scents as well. And I’ve already given into the chili craving. It’s my favorite fall food. Well that and basically any hearty soups.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says September 24, 2015 at 8:18 pm

    YES to fall scents! I was just thinking today that it’s time to take a trip to Yankee Candle for a new fall scent.

  • Reply Kerry September 24, 2015 at 9:17 pm

    I love the colors of Fall. That nail color is really pretty. Hope your Dad had a great birthday.

  • Reply Michael September 26, 2015 at 7:22 am

    Yes to everything!!! And what a gorgeous wedding photo!

  • Reply joey September 26, 2015 at 8:39 am

    Oh girl yes to fall! All the fall! Something changes inside of me when the weather cools. I’ve seen Frock n’ Roll and nearly picked it up a few times ,but I know my skin coloring well enough to know that while it looks awesome in the bottle, it might not be best on my hands. Boo.

  • Reply Teh Megan September 27, 2015 at 2:49 pm

    That marshmallow candle is my absolute favorite. I have one in my bedroom and my living room and my closet. Seriously, my favorite. People buy them for me because I preach about how awesome they are.
