Fall Survival Guide

IT’S THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF FALL. We must prepare! We must be ready! Even though we are still dealing with hotter temperatures we can still get ready for the spirit of Fall. Who knows, temperatures could drop any day now. Here are a few things to get you through this coming season.

  • Fall clothes 
    • Leggings, hoodies, boots, fuzzy socks, to name a few. Cute and comfy clothes are in style all at the same time.
  • Warm drinks
    • Whether your preference is Pumpkin Spice, Salted Caramel Mocha, or a Classic Hot Chocolate, fall brings back a variety of popular seasonal drinks.
  • Leaf Blower
    • Take charge of your yard! You could use a rake, but a leaf blower is always more efficient for getting the job done.
  • Halloween Costume
    •  Get in the spirit of Halloween! Wear a costume! Be someone new! Get candy and hang out with your besties!
  • Fall recipes
    • Apples, pumpkins, and caramel, oh my! Time to Pinterest all those new fall recipes. Make some pumpkin Rice Krispies or some scary sugar cookies for a treat. After carving your Halloween pumpkins, make sure you get some pumpkin seeds for a small snack.
  • Fall playlist
    • Summer is over no matter how much you wish it wasn’t. One of the best ways to embrace fall is making that new fall playlist with all your spookiest and mellow tunes. While “Thriller” and other  ‘spooky’ songs of the sort are classics, go beyond the cliches. Find the balance of spooky and chill. 
  • Fall home screen
    • Gotta change that summer home screen to one with leaves falling and roads that lead nowhere and cups of coffee with scarves laid haphazardly around. 🙂
  • Allergy medicine/ Tissues
    • For all my friends with Fall allergies out there, prepare ahead of time. You know Fall is coming— beat your allergies to the punch this year. Go out and buy your Claritin today!

Leaves are starting to take on the classic red, orange, and yellow hues, but that doesn’t mean that winter is coming… that means fall. NO CHRISTMAS decorations just yet!
