I love fall. For as long as I can remember, fall has by far been my favourite season. I remember moving to my hometown from where I grew up as a kid during Thanksgiving weekend and being so enthralled by the crisp air, abundance of vibrant leaves, and calmness in the air. Nowadays, being enthusiastic about fall is associated with being a basic white girl. So if I’m a basic white girl because I love fall, then so be it. Compared to my university town, which grants me great memories of a rainy grey highway and cement, my hometown is the epitome of a cozy fall scene. Rain and grey weather actually relaxes me, and the air is just so fresh and crisp. In preparation for many fall-inspired posts to come, I thought I would do a fall tag. Enjoy!
Favorite Fall scent.

Best way to spend a rainy day.
Sleeping in, going for a jog or walk outside, coming home and changing into cozy pyjamas, reading by the fireplace with a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate. And spending time with family.

Chai tea latte with almond milk (my year round favourite), or a pumpkin spice latte. At home- pumpkin chai tea from David’s Tea.
