Seasons Change

Fall Favorites

It’s been a while since I updated you guys on general life happenings, so that’s what I’m here to do today! I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, but I really can’t believe that we’re already in October. Between the craziness of fashion week (which was so fun) and the craziness of looking for an apartment (which was not so fun), September just passed by in a blur.

The good news is that my roommate and I are all done searching for a new place- we just signed the lease and we’ll be moving next weekend. I really cannot wait to make the new place my own. I’ve been pinning all sorts of inspiration on my ‘Cozy Home‘ board and I’m looking forward to adding little personal touches to our new place. I tend to be impatient with this sort of thing though (I want everything to be perfect, like now), so I have to keep reminding myself that it’s ok if our new home takes shape gradually.

Other than that, I’ve been working on getting new goods ready for my etsy shop.  I plan on adding some new fall colors of the knit bow headbands, and also a few chunky knit scarves as well, so keep checking back for new products!

What else have I been up to? Well last Friday, I attended the first ever TBC Unconference, which was really awesome. The event was held in Dumbo, in the amazing and well-decorated office space of Huge, Inc. In the beginning, we were treated to a delicious spread from Dumbo Kitchen, as well as yummy drinks from 1800 Tequila. Then once we had sufficiently stuffed our faces, we moved on to presentations put together by our very own members of The Bloggers’ Collective as well as a great presentation from a representative of Disqus. During each of the presentations it was really interesting to hear each person share more about their area of expertise. As if the evening weren’t already wonderful, we were also treated to a gift card from Modern Anthology. The whole night left me feeling very proud of TBC for organizing and hosting such a successful event.

And now you’re probably wondering what the picture above has to do with anything. Well not a ton really, except that it includes two of my fall favorites- donuts and apple cider! The other day I was thinking about how much I really enjoy fall. Growing up mainly on the west coast, there wasn’t really a huge change of seasons between summer and fall- it just got a bit cooler. Here on the east coast though, fall is definitely a separate entity. The air loses the thick humidity of summer and becomes crisper, the leaves start to change color, and people pull out their fall outerwear. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the west coast, but I can also appreciate what it’s like to experience fall here on the east coast. I want to hold on to fall as I long as I can, before the cold, icy fingers of winter grab ahold of the city!

Tell me: What is fall like where you live?
