We are finally experiencing fall here in Halifax and it is one of the most wonderful times of the year. Many of you darlings are sad to see summer come to an end, so to cheer you up I decided to remind you of the many reasons why you should be excited to see summer change to fall.
1. CRISP AIR
All of you summer lovers will hate me for saying this but I am just not a fan of the heat. I love the fresh, crisp and cool air that fall brings.
2. CHANGING LEAVES
Summer flowers are beautiful but they’ve got nothing on the colours of fall leaves.
3. CRUNCH OF THE LEAVES
The only thing better than the colour of the leaves in the fall is their crunch – why is it so satisfying?
4. SCENIC DRIVES
The changing colour of the leaves makes for the most beautiful and scenic drives.
5. CUTE DATES
Let’s face it, fall is the season with the cutest dates. Apple picking, corn mazes, pumpkin patches – all the adorable and Instagram-worthy dates.
6. NON-SWEATY CUDDLES
Gotta love cuddles with your sweetie or your fur babies, but in the summer it is often too hot. The cool air of fall allows for non-sweaty cuddles and it is wonderful.
7. NO BOOB SWEAT
I can see all of your faces right now and hear you saying ew – but don’t deny it – if you have boobs you have boob sweat and it is not fun.
8. FALL DECOR
The colours of fall truly make it one of the best seasons to decorate for – a close second behind Christmas of course.
9. COMFY BLANKETS
Naps are simply not the same without a comfy blanket.
Scarves, or hugs that you wear?
Ladies, we all patiently await fall to bring out our favourite knit sweaters.
Another fall staple – for everyone.
13. LEGGINGS AND SOCKS
Nothing is comfier than lounging around in leggings and big comfy socks.
My favourite footwear option. I am not overly tall, so a cute bootie gives me a little height and also looks adorable.
15. FALL FASHION IN GENERAL
I mean come on – every little bit of fall fashion is wonderful.
You know, I have never really been a huge fan of Halloween but this year I am actually getting into it!
Two words: turkey dinner.
18. WEAR MAKE-UP WITHOUT IT SWEATING OFF
One of the best parts of summer is that summer glow and not having to wear makeup all the time, but sometimes you actually want to wear it. When it’s hot and sweaty, your masterpiece just melts right off your face.
19. DARK LIPS
My favourite fall essential – a gorgeous dark lip.
20. COMFORT FOOD
Fall is the time to enjoy delicious and warm foods like soup, chili, grilled cheese, and anything you can make in a slow cooker.
21. PUMPKIN SPICE … ALMOST ANYTHING
I am a huge fan of PSL, and most baked goods with pumpkin spice are pretty delicious. Over the past few years things have gotten a little out of control with the pumpkin spice – but if we stick to the basics it is one of the best treats of fall.
22. SALTED CARAMEL
Salted caramel mocha, salted caramel cookies, salted caramel brownies, or salted caramel cheesecake. My mouth is actually watering right now!
23. HOT CHOCOLATE
While hot chocolate does tend to be more of a winter beverage – it is also a fall favourite.
24. ALL OTHER HOT BEVERAGES
Any coffee beverage, lattes, tea – they are all most enjoyable.
25. NEW BEGINNINGS
Fall is often a time of new beginnings, whether you are starting school or a new job or simply looking to make some lifestyle changes, fall often tends to be the setting for these new beginnings.
