5 Ways to Welcome Fall

The leaves are changing, the air is getting colder, and the lipstick is getting darker. That can only mean one thing, fall is around the corner! Even though summer is over, there are plenty of things to look forward to in the Fall. Here are 5 ways to welcome the season.



1.  Pumpkin Spice Lattes

It may seem very basic by now, but there is a reason for it! Pumpkin Spice Lattes (affectionately know as PSLs) incorporate the perfect combination of flavors that put you right in the fall mood.  You can't go through fall without getting one and it will warm you up in the chilly weather to come.


2. Apple Picking

There is nothing like going to an orchard and picking out some fresh apples to bring home with you. Homemade apple pie and a glass of cider are two of the season's best treats. Many orchards even offer hay rides to top off a perfect day trip with you friends.


3. Watch TV Show Premieres

This time of the year is when all our favorite fall shows come back on. A lot of major networks premiere new pilots as well. The wait is over after those suspenseful promos that have been playing all summer and you can finally settle into a fall TV routine.


4. Fall Beauty and Fashion

For all those makeup and fashion lovers out there, moving into fall is a great opportunity to transition your wardrobe as well. We're all feeling the itch to wear those classic fall colors, so break out those boots and dark lips because fall is in the air.


5. Fall Decor

Fall is full of holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. That means there are plenty of opportunities to use those colorful fall inspired decorations. Now is the perfect time to put away those umbrellas and beach chairs and replace them with pumpkins,  leaves, and candles.
