So there are my fall favorites! Although technically fall goes until December, my favorite parts are September and October, so I’m kinda sad to see my favorite parts to be winding down. But then Christmas is around the corner, which is just…amazing too. So what are your favorite things about fall?

Revlon’s Red Carpet and a Carmel Pumpkin Spice Latte <3
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
On my birthday I was awoken with a delivery from my secret sis, who spoiled me with a venti caramel pumpkin spice latte and a blueberry muffin. I'm so lucky!
Continuing the fragrance trend, I got my all-time favorite, Country Chic from Bath and Body Works perfume. Which, I actually got for Christmas last year, but upon moving out of my dorm last May, was broken in a tragic moving accident by my dad. So I've lived the last five months without, and it was very sad. But now I have a replacement and I'm really happy.
I also got a one inch curling wand, which I was beyond excited for. See, my hair refuses to curl. Ever. But in the two times I've used this since recieving it, I've had curls. That have lasted more than 12 hours. With minimal amounts of hairspray.
Knowing how insanely obssessed I am with Bath and Body Works and their fall scents, did you really think that I wouldn't ask for something from there for my birthday? Well, I did. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go to their White Barn Fall Festival (I was so excited for it too!) because of sorority recruitment, but I did hint to my mom that she could pick up some birthday presents that day during the certain times, and get the free Pumpkin Carving candle (which I DEMAND as a full line next fall).
Nothing is better than a cute cardigan, and I love dots! It's from Target and perfect for fall!!

I’m so in love with fall right now. Just everything is perfect. I love the colder weather (umm…pretty much though, Colorado just jumped right into winter, so that’s a little sad), the sweaters, boots, scarves, Pumpkin Spice Lattes (seriously, have caramel syrup added to it, and it’s HEAVEN), the leaves flying through the air, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, soup, Pumpkin Cupcake and Leaves Wallflowers, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin body spray, watching birds migrate, seeing the colors of the trees (so sad Colorado doesn’t get the explosion of red that other states get), hale pales, pumpkins, snuggling in blankets, wearing my boyfriend’s hoodies, and Target’s fun, colorful socks.
I don’t want this to end. I love the holidays and everything Christmas, but I want it to just stay like this awhile. Nothing is better than being in college in the fall.

First of all, I love haul videos on Youtube. They are probably my favorite thing ever. I just hate the word "haul." And I'm semi-nauseated that I titled this post with the word “haul” in it. But whatever. The point is I picked up some fun and exciting things and I want to share their amazingness!
So the main thing I was after on this little shopping trip was a cheetah/leopard (does anyone know the difference?) scarf. Mostly, because I’ve seen the cutest outfits lately on Pinterest, and I want to partake in the animal print cuteness. And before going to Target, I was trying to decide which color I wanted. I’ve eyed their colors before, and while I liked the more…snow leopard color, I decided I was going to go for it, with the normal, standard gold cheetah scarf. Well, my college town’s Target didn’t have it. And they say, when you can’t make up your mind, to flip a coin, and if you have a pulling sensation to the option that lost, you should go with that one. Well, I had a moment like that. So I knew when they didn’t have it, that I needed it. But I also wanted the white one. And this was the last one. So I bought it, and decided to drive (after the rest of my Target shopping and a little yummy lunch as a local Mexican restaurant), thirty minutes to another neighboring town’s Target. And thankfully, they had plenty. So yes, in case you are wondering, I did go to two Targets and another town just to purchase a scarf.
While there, I also saw that their leggings were on sale for just $5. I'm not sure if I'm a legging person, but I decided $5 was cheap enough that if I'm not, I won't feel guilty.
Next up was Payless, which I never planned on going to. But, it was calling me, and I love cheap shoes, and well. There you go. And while I was there, I saw the cutest pair of riding boots ever. On sale. And so cute. They are about a half size (at least) too big, but I figure with socks, it won't be too bad. And honestly, they are exactly what I was looking for, at not a bad price ($49).
On the way back from my second Target I went to, I stopped by this huge outdoor shopping mall, and of course, Bath and Body Works was calling me. I was kind of thankful, because the workers at the one in my college town, definitely recognize me now, which is just embarassing. I was shocked when I got there, that they are starting to get in their Christmas (!!!!!) home fragrances!!! The packaging is adorable by the way, but I'm just not ready. I'm loving fall waaaaay to much right now.
The first thing I decided I needed was the Sweet On Paris body wash. I sprayed a little on my hand, and seriously, was in heaven the rest of the afternoon smelling it. Amazing. Apparently, it's composed of blackberry, lemon meringue, and creamy vanilla. SO GOOD!! How did I not know how good this smelled until now? And of course, because I'm a hoarder, I bought more wallflower bulbs (two Pumpkin Cupcakes, Cider Lane, and Creamy Pumpkin). I never want the fall scents to leave, but I think I'm in the final weeks of buying them sadly. That just means I need to hoard more!!
That was my Sunday haul. I've been having some super stressful days because of school and sorority stuff, so taking this day just for me, was so nice!

You may have wondered when I would finally reveal what my room in my sorority house looks like. And honestly, I have no excuse for why it took like six weeks to get pictures up. But, I think it’s time.
