Guys, I really don't want to say this, but fall is almost over.  Well, according to the calendar it's going to last for a while longer, but the golden colors are starting to fall to the ground.  When fall first started I was actually upset.  I had such an amazing summer this year, that I really didn't want it to end.  Of course, I always fall in love with fall, so after a few days I was fairly pleased with the weather again.  The worst part of fall is the fact that  it ends.  And when fall ends, it means a cold, sloppy, grey mess called winter is coming.  And I don't like being cold, so I believe winter should be banned.  Case closed.  But, fall hasn't disappeared yet, so here are a few things to do before you can't be outside without a snow-suit.  


Get things done.  I know, I know.  Who wants to spend their time working on boring things, when you could be outside playing in leaves.  But doing what you inevitable have to before a few hours of procrastination will make ease the ache out of it.   I’m not even going to try and say I do this, because it'd be a complete lie.  But I do it sometimes, and it makes me feel so much better. 


Get up early, I mean, really early.  Even if you don’t do this every day, do it every now and then.  Get up before the sun and sit on your back porch with hot cider and a blanket.  I’m not even going to give you any reasons, just do it.  Let the fresh air bite your nose, let the sun slowly fill your lungs-feel alive. 


Have a fall photoshoot!  I've already done two this year and the photos turned out gorgeously.  If you look on Pinterest there are so many fall photoshoot ideas, looking at them just makes me giddy with delight. 


Get into the habit of exercising daily.  I know a lot of people who play sports in the fall, but by the time winter rolls around they don't exercise at all.  If you need some inspiration you can try this one here.  My legs were sore for two days.  Or this one here, which is geared toward ballerinas.  Even if you don't try it, those girls are insanely flexible.      


Two words: FALL FASHION.  *distant squeals*  Whenever fall comes my style improves 1000% in a snap.  Something about having more layers on makes people just look better.  I never go “seasonal” shopping, although I do shop my own closet.  I usually get new jeans, but that about tops it off.  I like to turn outfits on their heads, by looking up certain clothing items on Pinterest.  Such as, grey cardigan outfits (my personal favorite).  I often find new ways to wear old clothes.   It’s brilliant, my friend. 

I tend to read much more in the fall.  Don't ask me why, it just tends to happen.  Some of my favorite fall reads are as follows.

.  Anne of Green Gables
.  The Penderwicks on Gardam Street
.  Winter Cottage
.  From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
.  Esperanza Rising

If you have any clean wholesome books you love, I'd love to hear about them!

Do you love Autumn?  Do you miss summer, even a little bit?  What are your favorite books?  Do you read fiction on non-fiction more?  What are your favorite fall fashions?  Do you play any sports?  Have you done a fall photo-shoot?  Are you a procrastinator like me?  Or do you get things done right when you need to?  I know this was a rather thrown-together book, but I've suddenly been struck with a novel idea and can't think of anything else.

  3. You've read Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler??? I love that book! That is one of my favorite MG books.

    Ah yesss, fall fashion is always a go. I just picked up a few more fall pieces for my wardrobe.

    I totally agree that winter should be banned!! Even 50 degrees is cold for me.

    Awesome post, Ella!!


    1. Yes I have! Me too, it's really a great read.
      Fall fashion is always a good thing. <3
      Ugh, yes! Maybe it could be here just for a week around Christmas, but after that it needs to leave. Thanks, Catherine!

  4. I haven’t had a truly fall themed photo shoot yet and it’s greatly annoying me. Haha. Awesome post!

    1. Haha, hopefully you can have one soon! Thank you, Nabila!

  5. The Penderwicks is just such a great series to read, which reminds me about another thing that needs to be done before fall ends: drinking apple cider!

    P.S. I'm sorry I never replied to your email you sent me, but I'd still love to do a collab post with you to promote your blog more! I'll email you about that sometime this week.

    1. Yes! I seriously love those books (except the 4th, which made me cry way too much). Ooh, yes! I love apple cider <3

      Oh, that's totally fine! I'd love that too! Can't wait for your email!

  6. Squee! I love fall! This year the colors are particularly stunning. I've done a few photo shoots of the sunsets/sunrises, but I might try and do some with the leaves before they're all gone.

    Regular exercise is not something I struggle with (though I definitely used to). It's just kind of who I am now. It makes a huge difference in my day/mood.

    I 100% agree with you about fall fashion! So comfy and everything. It's amazing!

    Sigh. I love fall. Thank you for writing this post to remind us of all the amazing details of fall. LOVE IT!

    1. Eee, me too! Same here! The colors just take my breath away. Ooh, yes! You can't get a bad photo of colorful leaves.
      Good for you! That's so great! Yes, it's just so cute! Me too! Aww, thank YOU!

  7. Hi Ella! I've been loving your new blog and have been reading it since you started but I just realized I hadn't commented until now! It's so lovely though, keep up the great work! <3 (also, I'm sorry I never got back to you about your tour, I didn't want you to think I ignored you, I just got busy.)

    I love all these ideas! I can't believe how fast fall is fading away, I DONT KNOW IF I'M READY FOR WINTER,

    1. Hello Hannah! Aww, that makes me so happy to hear! <3 Oh, don't worry about that at all. I totally understand being busy.


  8. I totally agree! Being active is a great habit to get into as well as DRINKING WATER! Halp I need to hydrate XD

    1. Yes! I always feel so much better when I'm hydrated. Thanks for the sweet comment!

  9. Fall is my favorite season!! <3 I totally agree that everyone looks better in layers. Everyone should own sweaters and beanies and jackets because they honestly make fall that much better. Anne of Green Gables is awesome! I want to re-read that book soon. Lovely photos - makes me want to take a walk in the woods. <3 :)

    1. Yes, it's just so magical.<3 Definitely. Right? Ahh, yes! Aww, thanks, they're from Unsplash, but thank you anyway!

  10. These are great ideas! :)
    I can check some of them off- such as having a fall photo-shoot, reading (I read a lot in fall too). Anne of Green Gables is such a wonderful book. Have you read any of the others?

    1. Thank you, Kendra! Ooh, yes <3 It really is! I haven't, although they are on my TBR. Thanks for the lovely comment!
