Fall FindsTuesday, October 27, 2015
We're officially into deep fall, y'all. We had a delicious Thanksgiving, I've been cowering under the blanket pretending to watch some scary movies, we went apple picking and visited a pumpkin patch and navigated a corn maze, so we're checking off all the fall essentials. It's also getting really dark and really cold. Staying up past 9pm is a struggle, getting out of bed in the dark is a struggle...bears have the right idea with the whole hibernation thing.
In honour of what is undoubtedly the best season of the year, I decided to round up some of my recent favourite things and share them with you.
4. Illume Woodfire candle - Confession time: our fireplace is electric. And while it emits a cozy glow and some welcomed warmth in our living room, it's just not the same as a legit woodburning fireplace. Enter this candle, which, as you may have been able to decipher from the name, smells just like a woodsy fire. With this baby lit, if you kind of squint at the "flames", you can almost imagine it's a real fire. You can order them online but I picked mine up at Chapters.
5. Luckiest Girl Alive - I've had this book on hold at the library for a million years and finally got it into my hot little mitts just in time to curl up with under a nice warm blanket (scarf?). It's been touted as "the next Gone Girl!" which, sorry, wishful thinking, BUT it's a nice, dark, twisted little story, which is the best kind.
So that's what I'm into lately. Make yourself a spicy hot chocolate, light a candle, wrap yourself up in a scarf/vest/coat/blanket hybrid and enjoy watching teenagers get murdered and reading about a woman who likes to get slapped across the face during sex. This is what fall's all about, guys!
