Although today is the first official day, I know that I've been talking nonstop about autumn on the blog for some time now. I really can't help it! Despite the weather or the official orbital calendar, fall begins for me on September 1st. I'm pulling out the sweaters, dusting off the fall books, and preparing a skincare routine for colder weather. We're all replacing poolside coconut candles with scents of amber and vanilla and we're trading in watermelon aqua fresca for hot apple cider.
As is the case with many, fall is my favorite season. It's magical and cozy and encapsulates all the feelings of gezelligheid. I've recently posted lists of books, movies, and recipes to enjoy during the season but here is a quick list of my fall favorites to celebrate its commencement!
