How To Get In The Fall Spirit

I am super inspired to write this post right now because it's officially the first day of the season that hasn't been 500 degrees! I am a huge fall person (aren't we all?) and I like to live up the season to its fullest so I'm sharing with y'all 4 ways that I get into the fall spirit! 


1. Cozy Sweaters

I think this one is a given. However, I wanted to mention it so that I could share some of my favorites available this year! 



2. Pinterest

Pinterest is amazing for finding anything involving DIY's and decor ideas, as I'm sure y'all know. This goes for fall related DIYs/decor too! In addition, it is great for providing ideas about fall related activities and fall bucket lists. Below, I will link a few of my favorite fall related Pinterest posts.

3. Tumblr Blogs

Pinterest is definitely great for finding fall related DIYs and ideas for fall decor, but when it comes to creative fall photography, Tumblr is the JAM. I follow so many Tumblr blogs that are solely dedicated to fall photos and have spent hours scrolling through them just to get that blissful fall feeling. Below are a few of my favorite fall Tumblr blogs (tip: Tumblr is more user friendly on the mobile app). 






4. Fall Scented Candles

Ok, so I am such a candle snob. It sounds really weird but I went through a phase Junior year of high school where I was absolutely obsessed with candles and would burn one every night. I probably asked for about $200 worth of candles for christmas that year. Because of this, I have discovered alllll of the best candle scents for fall. Below, I have linked my faves!

Favorite Places I Ate This Summer in NYC

This summer was incredible and the reason was in-part due to all the delicious restaurants I tried out. While there were a couple of sub-par spots I came across, the majority were fantastic and I just had to write this post to rave about them. In no particular order, here are some of my favorite NYC restaurants from this summer including everything from brunch to dinner. 

1. Chalk Point Kitchen


I hate salads but I love eating healthy food. It can be hard for me to find restaurants that suit that desire but Chalk Point Kitchen makes it so easy! This little spot is in the trendy area of SoHo but has the cutest little farm/grandma's kitchen vibes. The entire menu is full of healthy brunch entrees and only several of them are salads! The "Avocado & Sweet Potato Hash" (pictured) caught my eye and it didn't disappoint at all.
