Fall in love with fall

Red, orange and yellow leaves. Clear blue skies. Fashion weeks, book releases and art exhibitions. Halloween, Black Friday and start of the holiday season. There are many reasons to fall in love with fall. And here are four more.

Bring on the scarves

Temperatures are dropping and there is no better reason (or season) to bring out the creativity in you and to take inspiration from the changing colors around you. Twirl a cozy scarf around yourself, put on your favorite cardigan, and bring out your leather boots. Combine this with a cup of coffee in the still warming sun, and you are a full feathered fall fashionista.

Movie time galore

If you have been craving to watch the new (or old) Netflix series since July, but due to the indoor-shaming season – summer – you have chosen to sit outside in the evenings to make the most of summer, then wait no more. Wrap a blanket around your legs and start binge watching.

Off-season traveling

Traveling off-season means no lines in front of the ice cream parlor, fewer people on the public transport, and lots of room to show off that landmark monument in the mandatory selfie. However, the main reason for traveling off-season is that you hang with the locals. Most people have gone back to everyday life, dropping kids off at school, going to the market and taking their morning coffee reading the news, next to you. You are not just another tourist.

Time for harvest

Apple cider, pumpkin pies, and roasted chestnuts. Visit your nearest farmers’ market and go (hazel)nuts over what the season offers in terms of comfort food. Sweet potato fries, walnut and caramel cupcakes, plum and almond crumble… the list is long. And sweet. And an important bonus on top is that it’s good for the environment. So you will feel good from heart to tummy.
