I’m not gonna lie: fall gets me excited year after year. Summer is fantastic and all, but fall is all about the hustle. It’s an incredibly busy time of year for all of us, so I always need a pick me up or two to get me through this hectic time of year! Here are a few essentials that are getting me through the season so far!
I’m old school, guys. I can’t manage to type my notes on my phone. I always carry a notebook with me just in case I need to jot down an idea that comes to mind, someone’s contact info, a quick to-do list or writing down a few lessons I’ve learn from the many blog conferences/panels I attend. That’s why I love the MayDesigns Notebook. The founder, Mica May, dreamed up the idea for the perfect notebook that is small enough to fit in a purse and can withstand the daily wear and tear of scribbles. I’m a huge fan of this notebook, and the customization on the cover was the most adorable touch!
As a bonus for my readers, MayDesigns is offering 20% off of all of their products for the month of October with the code ACORN-20! Also, I know I’m insanely early with this, but this would make for an amazing holiday present 🙂
If you follow me on Snapchat, you probably know that I am a full blown coffee addict. In an effort to curb my insane amount of spending of coffee, my roommate and I decided to invest in a coffee maker and grinder so we can brew our own cups of joe at home. I was pleasantly surprised with Onyx Coffee’s Ethiopian Giji Hambela blend: the hints of raspberry, chocolate and white grape made for the perfect flavor! This is a really delicious option for those of us coffee addicts trying to save a few bucks and brew at home.
One thing about me? Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. I have a ton of younger cousins (no nieces or nephews unfortunately since I’m an only child!) and a very large extended church family, so I always feel like I’m on the hunt for the perfect trick-or-treat item each fall! I don’t have that much of a sweet tooth, that’s why I was so excited to find Switch Witch.
Switch Witch a new, educational and healthy Halloween tradition that doesn’t take away the fun out of trick-or-treating. It comes with a toy and a 20-page illustrated book, where The Switch Witches use their magic to “Switchcraft” the candy for a book or toy on Halloween night. This toy also has an optional app you can download to accompany it and encourages children to support other children, particularly those suffering from certain candy-related allergies. You can find Switch Witch at your local Target store!
I have to admit: I’m the queen of losing my hair ties season after season. I’m not quite sure where they all end up, but I hope that they’re happy in hair-tie heaven. I’ve been using Goody hair ties for most of my life, and I love how accessible they are and all of the fun colors they come in! I was super excited to pick up their ouchless hair ties this season. It’s one of the only hair ties that is gentle enough for my hair so that it doesn’t rip out! I’ll be keeping a pack of these in my workout bag this season.
I’m not going to lie: I’m obsessed with pumpkin everything this season. My roommate and I just went on a Target haul and scooped up so many great fall accents for our apartment! Now that our place looks the part, why not have it smell like fall as well? This candle from Glade is seriously one of my favorite scents ever. The scent is strong enough so that it makes your apartment smell like autumn even without burning the candle. However, once you so start to burn it, it is heaven. I’ll be burning this scent from now until Thanksgiving!
