My 5 Favorite Things About Autumn

It's Fall y'all. Well almost, Is it here yet? I've been counting the hours! I mean, I want 2015 to slow down a bit, but man I am ready for this heat to take a vacation. As I prep for the upcoming season here are my five favorite things about it! 

This candle smells exactly like The Ninja's cologne. Yes, it's a "manly" fragrance, but it smells like comfort to me. Most of you don't know this, but The Ninja works late nights and most evenings I go to bed without him being home. I keep this candle on our bedside table and light it when I get up to wash my face, brush my teeth, and put my hair up. By the time I get back to the bedroom it smells as if he was home and it is so comforting. Geeze A2, mushy much? It is a fall release so I tend to stock up on it during this time of year! 


I don't know why we limit ourselves to believing that caramel apples are a fall thing, they should be an everyday thing in my personal opinion, but I definitely prioritize them in the fall. The Chocolate Crocodile is my hometown confectionary. I love pretty much everything they make, but OMG their apples. I even had my mother ship me a "care package" when I was pregnant with Treyson and living in North Dakota. It was frozen when it arrived because of the temperature outside. I often joke that was the longest 4 hours of my life. There is nothing like have to watch your favorite items thaw so that you can eat them! Nowadays you can order the Chocolate Crocodile's deliciousness online! Lucky you! 


Old Navy - 39.94

Fall screams boot season. Like in a huge way, and I practically live in these from Old Navy. I purchased the grey pair last year and loved them so much I went back...I may have also bought them in black and marsala as well. You know, when you love it you buy it in every color they make it in. Just me? Okay. Trust me, you will love them too. They are comfortable and pair well with pretty much everything. 

KnitPopShop - 19.95

Nothing says fall to me like busting out the scarfs. I am a big fan of scarfs, but blanket scarfs in particular. I love the fullness and richness of a blanket scarf. I tend to wear pretty neutral clothes year round and then spice them up with accessories. My most common accessory is definitely something similar to this.   


As many of you know, I am also a makeup geek. I spend most of my free time playing with makeup, shopping for makeup, applying makeup, swatching makeup, staring at makeup...it goes on and on. As the seasons change so do the trends and I love that part of the experience. Whether it be fashion or makeup, I love to see what is going to be popular or interesting throughout the upcoming season. I have already ordered three colors from this collection! Trust Issues, Sarafine, Paint, and Veronica all now have homes in my collection and I honestly love them. You guys will notice a huge navy blue and grey shift in lips this season. It has been a seriously popular trend so far! 

I'm so excited for all! I can't believe it's already here and at the same time I am so grateful for its arrival finally! It's been a long year and I am pumped to keep it going! Happy fall everyone! Enjoy your weekend and as always stay exceptionally chic & exquisitely geek!

    1. Ah! See, I'm not a big pumpkin spice fan. I wish I was, with every ounce of my being, but I'm just not! Sadness abounds. :-(

  6. That story about the candle is adorable! And I love scarves ... but have yet to buy a blanket version. I keep seeing them this year, and think it's about time I get one for myself. :)

    1. You totally understand the feeling then! I wish The Ninja's pillow wasn't so dang fluffy, I'm more of a "flat" kinda pillow person!
