October Favorites! (Miscellaneous)

Happy first post-Blogtober post! Wow that’s a mouthful.

So I do this thing where I go through phases  in being obsessed with all sorts of different things depending on the week, or day, or month, so I thought it might be fun to do a few of my favorite things through the month of October. I tried forming some kind of order to these, but honestly, there isn’t one, so we’re just going to roll with it.

The first thing I’e been obsessed with is something I’ve talked about here before-my sloth blanket. I literally have carried this thing all over my apartment with me for the entire month. I sleep with it at night. Bobby knows that if I ask him to get me a blanket, I mean the sloth blanket. There’s just something so absurdly comforting about sloths in Halloween costumes! And honestly, it’ll probably just be a constant favorite. It’s too soft and too cozy to be a seasonal item.

My next favorite is more of a general category than a specific item, and that is CUTE SCHOOL SUPPLIES. I’m obsessed with my planner this year; it’s one of the Happy Planners from Michael’s. It’s big and colorful, and the layout is super cute. And how adorable is my pen?! It’s from this great website called Blog Prop Shop. The crystals inside were what originally sold me. I had so much trouble figuring out what color I wanted to get, but the pink goes so nicely with my planner, I definitely made the right choice! And it just writes so smoothly, I’m obsessed. If you’re a school supplies junkie like me, you know how I feel.

The final item is something I didn’t know I needed until I had it, and WOW is it a lifesaver! This adorable pink dish (also from Blog Prop Shop) is the perfect addition to my vanity/desk setup! I have this cute little fall aesthetic going, and it fits perfectly! Right now, it’s holding a cute set of bridal hair ties, and I use it to hold my rings when I’m doing my makeup, going to take a shower, basically whenever I need to put them down and not lose them. It’s pretty sturdy, too, so I’m thinking it’ll just become my go-to when I need a cute place to hold literally anything.

Blog Prop Shop itself honestly is one of my October favorites. They just have so many cute things that you don’t realize you need until you NEED them. They just add a little OOMPH to your living space, and I can’t wait to keep ordering them. I mean, free shipping anywhere in the US? Sign me up please.

And because they’re literally the coolest people alive, the owners of Blog Prop Shop gave me a coupon code to share with you! Just enter fearlesslykate20% at checkout and you’ll get 20% off your whole order!

How to Make it FEEL like Fall (For When You’re Feeling Impatient)

Hey y’all,

So, if you’re anything like me, you are READY for the autumn season. Your decorations are out, you’ve made your fall bucket list, you’re burning cozy candles…and it’s eighty degrees outside in the midst of a hurricane.

Huh.

Yeah, I wasn’t happy about it either as I purchased my pumpkin spice cheerios wearing a short sleeve flamingo t-shirt and flip flops. SO, I’ve been trying to at least transition into fall in my apartment, even if the outside world hasn’t gotten on board yet. Need some ideas? Keep reading.

1. DECORATE!

I’m eventually going to do an entire post on this, but for now, all I’ll say is PULL OUT THE DECORATIONS! I went through the box in the closet, pulled out the stuff from last year, and then I went to the dollar section at Target and bought MORE. It’s affordable, it’s easy, and it really gets you in that spooky autumn mood.

2. Burn a cozy candle.

If you aren’t feeling SUPER cozy (because of the heat), just burn something that has the word “harvest/fall/autumn/maple/leaves/harvest” in its name, and that should do nicely. Again, Target has these pretty mild candles for something like $3. Also, the Yankee Candle scent “Sunset Fields” I’ve found is really good for moving between summer and autumn.

This just makes me wanna curl up with a book and a PSL! 

3. Put on an acoustic playlist.

This is my FALL MUSIC! I love acoustics in the fall, and sometimes, just turning on one of Spotify’s premade playlists makes all the difference. One of my favorite YouTubers, Kalyn Nicholson, also has a fall acoustic playlist I’ve been LOVING called “youtober”.

4. Bake!

Baking in general helps me get in the fall mood, but baking something with pumpkin, or cinnamon REALLY gets me there. Obviously, if your house is super hot you might not want to turn on the oven, but if you really want to get in the fall swing of things, baking is a relaxing, delicious way to do that.

Those are my top tips for making it FEEL like fall even when it’s not! I’m trying to be patient too; I can’t wait for chillly weather, sweaters, and pumpkin spice 24/7. Summer, it’s been real, but I think it’s time we part ways.
