“Of all the things I still remember
Summer’s never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remainIn the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain…”~Daughtry
“But the days grow short
When you reach SeptemberWhen the autumn weather
Turns leaves to flame…”~Willie Nelson
“It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon.”
~Sarah Addison Allen
With Autumn comes so many new looks in colors and style for hair color,fashion and makeup! I’ve been loving all the new colors this year. I can’t wait to play around with some browns and burgundy tones!
Fashion gets a little more snuggly in Autumn,yet there are some days when the sun still wants to play. I personally cannot wait for it to cool down. I used to hate wearing jackets,boots,scarves and sweaters…but now I prefer it! It may be time to move back to a cooler climate!
“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.”
― J.K. Rowling
In Autumn foods and scents get “spicier”…as in pumpkin spice! Anyone a pumpkin spice fan? Anyone sick of hearing about it? Haha! I tried my very first Starbucks Pumpkin Spice frap this year and it wasn’t bad. I’m partial to the salted caramel mocha though! It rocks my world!
I do love the smell of most pumpkin spice themed items. I spent some time in bath & Body Works crying over Pumpkin Cupcake scented lotions that were too expensive and candles that were on sale 🙂 Le Sigh….
Also apples! When I worked in downtown Blowing Rock tourists came for miles to get Honeycrisp apples. I love apple pie and this year I am going to try my hand at making one!
Also looking forward to all my shows coming back on! American Horror Story started with a bang last night! It’s going to be an amazing season,for sure! NC theme? Heck yes!! Lucifer and Younger start next week I believe. Those are just a few of my favorites. Can’t wait to see what they all have in store. I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Hallmark Movies& Mysteries channel lately. They really have some great shows! Murder,She Baked and The Garage Sale Mysteries I highly recommend! Mystery stories always put me in a fall mood.
“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. ~Stephen King
And I have indeed missed it…. ❤
