Fall is Here and So is a Cute Giveaway!

Fall is Here!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love pumpkins, cool weather, mustard yellow, pumpkin orange & sienna red colors, when the trees start to change colors, Thanksgiving feasts (yes I said FEASTS… plural!), crafty Halloween goodies; you name it, I love it. While the weather doesn’t get as cool as I’d like it to here in Southern California, I still appreciate it when we’re not having 90 degree temperatures and we can actually bring out our sweaters and hot coffee.

Here are a few fall items I’ve been enjoying so far:

Fall Nail Polish by Sinful Colors - Big Daddy & Pull Over

Nail polish by Sinful Colors: Big Daddy and Pull Over.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know the (mis)adventures I went through to find that mustard yellow polish. Totally worth it! LOVE it!

Pumpkin Spice K-Cups by Green Mountain Coffee

Oh my! I was so excited to see these were on the shelves at Target. I almost bought 4 packs but I could hear my husband in my ear: “You don’t NEED 4 boxes! Put them back!” Men. Psh. They don’t understand.

Chocolate Cake, Cream Cheese Frosting, and Pumpkin Puree: Fall baking is here!

Now I know chocolate cake isn’t necessarily fall-ish but baking is! I’ll be baking my little toosh off this fall and I can’t wait! My favorite is pumpkin bread…and pumpkin cheesecake. And I’ll be trying pumpkin spice cake pops soon, too!

Starbucks - Venti Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh man. Every fall, I spend WAY too much money at Starbucks. I can’t resist. Their pumpkin spice lattes (hot or cold) are just way beyond yummy.

Cute Kitty Cat Mug - Perfect with Fall Colors!

Isn’t this mug super cute?? It has everything: a cute kitty cat, hearts, polka dots, stripes, fall colors, and it holds COFFEE! I adore it!

I loved that kitty mug so much! Even though the kitty isn’t a grey tabby like ChloBubs, I think it’s perfect for me. I loved it so much that I bought two and want to give my extra mug to a lucky reader…maybe you! All you need to do is comment below, telling me why you love fall.

The contest is open now and will end on Friday, September 28th at 11:59 Pacific Standard Time. I’ll select a random winner and announce it on Monday, October 1st. Good luck and happy fall!!
