I hope everyone’s been having a great week so far! The weather has really cooled off here which feels so good, I had to bust out my big blanket scarves a few mornings this week, which I love! I’ve also been living in this long grey cardigan since I got it in the mail a few weeks ago, the colour goes with everything and I love the length. Cozy cardigans are a staple in my fall and winter wardrobe and Old Navy has some really good ones right now, and they’re all 30% off this week!
On another note, this weekend is Canada’s Thanksgiving long weekend and I’ve got some fun things planned. Peter and I are headed to Blue Mountain(my favourite place!) for their Apple Harvest Festival for a couple days – to hike, try different ciders, take blog pictures, and just do fun fall activities. Then we’re coming home just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday and Monday with each of our families. Thanksgiving has always been my favourite holiday since it falls in my favourite month of the year(my birthday month) October, so I can hardly wait!
Do you guys have any fun plans this weekend? Let me know in the comments! Oh, and follow along on my Instagram stories to see what we get up to at the Harvest Festival (@melissaashburn) 🙂
I wanted to start a new series on the blog for fall, all about how to get into the spirit and embrace the season. In the fall I find myself craving tv shows & movies that give me one of two feelings, cozy, or creepy, and I’m sure I’m not alone. So I’m breaking down all the shows and movies I’ve been hooked on that give me all the fall vibes!
Cozy Shows/Movies – ie. Shows that are usually set in the fall, but are wholesome and easy to watch with the whole family. They’re the perfect kind of show to curl up in bed to watch with a warm cup of tea or hot chocolate and just enjoy.
The Good Witch – The movies are great, but the TV show is even better, and great for the whole family.
The Proposal – A classic Rom-Com starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, its an older movie but still one of my fall favourites
Girl Vs Monster – A Disney Channel Halloween Movie, its sets the fall/Halloween feels and is easy to watch.
Halloween Wars – A reality/competition show revolving around everything Halloween
Halloween Baking Championship – Another reality/competition show that challenges bakers to make spooky treats (I love this one because it gives you fun ideas of what you could make with your family/friends)
A few classic movies worth mentioning – Hocus Pocus, Halloween town (1,2,3,&4), twitches (1&2), Tower of Terror, & Haunted Mansion.
Creepy Shows/Movies – ie. Shows with a bit of mystery and/or horror without being too scary(I don’t watch believably scary stuff or I get nightmares lol)
Riverdale – Netflix’s new show based around the Archie comics
Scream Queens – Full of (cheesy) murder and drama, but I love it.
Scream – The Netflix Tv series NOT the old movies. I just discovered this show and binge watched the whole 2 seasons in three days. If you like PLL, Riverdale or Scream Queens you’ll like this one. (Warning* It is gory but its very fake looking, so its not overly scary)
Stranger Things – I’m sure you’ve all seen the first season but if you haven’t you should catch up now because the new season comes out October 27th on Netflix!
Shadow Hunters – I mentioned this one last year when there was only 1 season on Netflix, and now that season two just ended and the filming for season three has started I feel like I should mention it again. If you like supernatural shows with demons and vampires, you’ll love this show.
A few older shows worth mentioning incase you didn’t take the plunge into them years ago – Pretty Little Liars (their coming out with a spin off too!!), The Walking Dead, & The 100.
I’m going to keep adding to this post as I discover more Autumnal shows, so keep checking back! If you have any shows or movies you think I should watch and add to the list leave me a comment below. Id love to hear your suggestions for fally shows 🙂
It’s finally fall but the temps here are still feeling like summer, so I’ve opted for a ‘fall’ outfit that works for both seasons lol! The skirt I’m wearing is from Banana Republic but its about a year old so I’ve linked some other options that would work perfectly for re-creating this type of look. You can literally never go wrong with a classic black and while polk-a-dot piece in your wardrobe…I have quite a few polk-a-dot pieces in my wardrobe because they work for any season and never go out of style!
OH, and this scarf is the same one I mentioned a few posts back (here) but in the camel colour. Its extra soft and so big it could easily double as a throw for on your bed, which makes it the dreamiest scarf for fall ever!
Hey guys, happy first weekend of FALL! ….I have been waiting all year to say that(LOL #obsessed)
Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few weeks, I took some time off from social media just to get re-focused and excited about it again. But I’m back and excited to share some ~Fall~ looks with you guys! Todays outfit is one of my favs, I mean…how cute is this camo skirt!? I’m in love!
I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far, the weather has been beautiful here so I’ve been doing a lot of hiking with my sister these past few days. We love taking in all the stages of the changing leaves, they’re just starting to turn colour here so I want to try and go for a hike every weekend of fall so I don’t miss any of it!
