Fall Faves

(A great fall print from Etsy seller Get The Picture)

The chill in the October air always makes me want to change up my routine. Here's a list of some of my favourite things for fall:

- Baking with cinnamon: I found this great recipe for Snickerdoodles on Smitten Kitchen today! They may be made before the week is up.

- Hot chocolate and herbal tea: Tazo Tea is my absolute favourite, especially Wild Sweet Orange. I just finished off my last one on the weekend. Time for a refill!

- Painting: I have a few that I've been meaning to work on all summer (sorry, guys!) I've been playing around with some watercolours a bit - the colours are so dreamy. Today's posting on Decor8 was really inspiring.

- Crafting for Christmas: time to start making gift tags, and I need to write a master gifting list. Last year I tried to have a "homemade Christmas" but left it a little too long. This year should run a little more smoothly.

- New hobbies: I'm determined to learn how to crochet, lefty or not. Screenprinting is also on my list. There are a few great tutorials out there that make it seem super simple.

- Pumpkin goodies: I'm planning on making a pumpkin cheesecake for my darling. He's a bit of a pumpkin fiend. These whoopie pies also look tasty!

- Lots of body lotion application and hair conditioning... prevent the oncoming winter dryness. Bath and Body Works came out with my new favourite lotion. We picked some up on vacation - I've got to order more online!

- And, of course, some home decor switch-ups... stay tuned for tomorrow's post!
