Fridayyyyy Yah!

Fall- is hands down one of my absolute favorite times of the year. As of late I’ve become much more mindful of  how taking small “mini breaks” from stress is not only needed but mandatory.  I want to share a few simple and easy ways to relax and take a break from your electronic devices, stress, work duties and weekend chores. Thy’re all extremely doable and at the end of the day you might just be a whole lot less less stressed and feel…rejuvenated which is the whole point of taking some downtime anyway. Come to think of it-I think that should rename downtime-up time-because taking a break can elevate not only your life but your mood. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy!

  1. If you haven’t already do a closet flip for Fall. Now I know you may THINK this is a work related activity but alas nothing could be more calming,meditative and uplifting than getting out your Fall clothes and storing your Summer items.
  2. Sip your favorite Fall beverage-whatever you like that is warm and gives you comfort: Hot cocoa,pumpkin latte, or apple spiced anything.

    2 cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)
    2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
    1 to 3 tablespoons sugar, depending on how sweet you like it
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for serving
    1/2 cup strong hot coffee
    Whipped cream, for serving

    Directions

    Add milk, pumpkin puree, and sugar to a saucepan over medium heat. Heat until hot, but do not boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and the coffee.Divide the mixture between two mugs. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

  3.  Get outdoors. Now to be clear I’m not saying you have to commit to a full on camp out to appreciate the colors of Fall but find a beautiful park,walkway or nature preserve and take a long walk enjoying the colors of the season, the crisp air and best of all the smell of freshly fallen leaves. Heaven.  

4.  Decorate your porch with pumpkins. I mean who doesn’t love PUMPKINS!

Blanket  aka wraps/coats cape scarf(s) are BIG and I do mean that literally. Take an over sized wool scarf and wrap it around your shoulders and whah-lah instant statement coat that keeps you warm when the weather is not exactly cold but you need some kind of cover to keep the chill to a minimum.  Here are a few examples to inspire-wear your over sized scarf belted or worn free flowing. No matter how you choose to pair or wear it -the look can make a statement for Fall.

Don’t you just LOVE animal prints?! Me too,guilty as charged! For my money there is nothing and I do mean nothing that really elevates your outfit up a style notch faster than  adding a pop of animal print to your outfit. Now I just want to mention before going any further that being the animal lover that I am …when it comes to any type of animal print faux is the ONLY way to go but  the good news is that faux looks fabulous. Here are a few style ideas to inspire and always remember that leopard is a neutral so  you can pair it with anything,denim, plaids, prints “other” neutrals-the animal print is truly a style staple.
