Random Friday Favorites | Things I’ve Been Loving Lately #48
I don’t know if it’s the incessant heat of August that’s broken down my will or maybe I’m just that obsessed, but I am soooo ready for fall to be here! I know it’s a little early for people in my state (California) to be excited for fall as our autumn season doesn’t even officially start until October, but seriously; that doesn’t stop any of us from loading up on pumpkin spice lattés and baked goods even if it is 90 degrees outside. For the rest of you guys who probably have cooler weather than us: I am super jealous! You’ll get to enjoy a nice chilly breeze with that latté a month ahead of us. Anyhow, since I’m basically acting like fall is already here, I decided it’s time for a little fall inspiration. Because you can bet I’ll be shopping for fake glitter pumpkins and all that jazz from now until October 😉 Here are a few things I’m seriously excited for this fall season ♥
Warm Beverages All Day Every Day ♥
There is something incredibly fulfilling about warm beverages during cold weather. I’m a big tea and coffee lover and I prefer the hot varieties. There’s just something incredibly introspective about it; I just love my coffee in the morning and tea time at night! And when it’s 90+ degrees outside, I just can’t bring myself to drink any beverage hot.
Fall (and Halloween) Fashion ♥
Is there anything better than fall fashion? As much as we all enjoy our tank tops and flip flops here in Cali, I know we all love to break out our sweaters, scarves and boots the moment it hits 60 degrees because that’s cold for us. Layering is such a fun way to style outfits and is there a more appropriate time for cat flats?! I think not.
By now, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I’m basically obsessed with the Halloween season, but if not, well, better you know now before things get too serious between us. Halloween costumes are something I just absolutely love to see and not just mine. I love seeing what everyone else comes up with, what their kids dress up as, and even what costumes people put their dogs in (much to their dog’s chagrin, I imagine). My dog probably hates Halloween, but that’s just too bad because he’s only 7 pounds and has no say in the matter! For some reason, I have no idea what I want to dress up as this Halloween. I am normally someone who plans their costume months in advance, but maybe it’s my old age catching up to me because I have no idea what to do this year! That said, I’m coming up with tons of costume ideas for you guys in spite of not knowing what to do for myself so stay tuned for those 😉
Last, but certainly not least is the Halloween makeup! Isn’t it incredible what people can do with a little bit of makeup? I love seeing Halloween makeup so much and I love coming up with Halloween makeup looks to share with you guys. I just find it all very fun and festive. What kind of Halloween makeup looks are your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
