All the Books on My Fall Reading List

There’s really nothing more that I like during the fall season than sitting with a good book and a warm cup of something. I never plan on reading any books in particular during any particular season. The only exception? I always read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone during Christmas. I’ve just always done it since I was a kid.

Today I’d like to share with you all of the books I’ll be (trying) to finish this fall. AKA just all of the books I’ve unnecessarily bought over the summer.

Fall Clothing Wishlist – Sezane, Zara, & Madewell

Is it fall weather out yet? NOPE. As I’m sitting here writing this, it is currently 80 DEGREES OUTSIDE. It is almost OCTOBER. How some people claim global warming is beyond me, but that’s an entirely different topic…

This post is about all the items I’m currently eyeing for my fall wardrobe, not a heated debate topic that really shouldn’t be a debate.

Birchbox – September 2017

Without going into all the boring details, I had to create a new Birchbox account. I was actually pretty ok with this; from what I remember, I didn’t have a lot of points left, and that would’ve been the only reason to save my old account.

The last time I got a box was about 2 or 3 years ago, when I was still in college. I was working less hours at my student job, and the extra $10 a month in savings seemed like a good idea. But now I have a full-time job, and I decided to subscribe again.

Favorite TEDTalks : Happiness

So I’ve always loved TED. A lot of my professors in college would use their TEDTalks as additional teaching tools, and I ended up watching more on my own time. But in the past year, I just haven’t had the time or motivation to really get into them again.

But the time is now, friends. I decided that I’m going to focus on one subject at a time. Whenever I have time, I’ll watch a video on that subject. If it had an impact on me, then I’ll share them with you! During the past month or so, I’ve been looking up TEDTalks on happiness. Not that I really need to be more happy, but it’s always been a topic that I’ve been interested in. I found 3 TEDTalks; each one presents really interesting views and ideas (in my opinion) on happiness, and they’re all pretty different from each other.

5 Changes I’m Making to My Makeup Routine for Fall


As I’m updating my wardrobe for chillier weather, I’m reminded that my makeup routine probably needs a few changes as well. Over the summer, I was wearing less makeup than I’d ever been. I always gravitate towards the idea of “natural beauty” for the warmer months, mainly since I hate being hot and having a load of makeup on my face just makes me even more miserable. But fall is definitely on it’s way to Virginia, and it’s giving me an itch to pile some more makeup on ma face.

Below are the top 5 things I’m changing to my makeup routine to get me ready for fall!
