10 Ways To Fall Into The Autumn Spirit

Gonna get my Pumpkin Spice Latte on.

10 Ways To Fall Into The Autumn Spirit
Wallpaper Cave

1. Go hiking.

There's nothing like the beauty of nature as the seasons are changing, and my favorite time of year for this is fall. The crunch of leaves under my boots, the crisp chill in the air, the promise of a warm drink waiting at home. And the aesthetic is unreal. Go on a hike this fall and see how easily your mind calms.

2. Find a small-town festival near you and go to it!

These are a dime a dozen during the fall (honestly, throw a dime and you'll hit one), but they're all worth checking out. Street fairs, food fairs, and themed fairs always have something fun and free to offer, like live music, great food, and cool arts and craft vendors from the local area. Check them out, they're a fun and easy way to support local artists in your community.

3. Pumpkins.

Do all the pumpkin-related activities and try all the pumpkin-related foods. Go to a pumpkin patch, pick a great pumpkin, and carve that baby up! Get creative - give it clothes, give it fangs, make it scary, make it cute, it's totally up to you! Same goes for the eating and drinking portion of this one - try all the things! From the Pumpkin Spice Latte to Pumpkin Spice Oreos, if you can dream it, it's probably out there in pumpkin flavor. (If you're allergic to pumpkin or pumpkin spices, I'm so sorry and I feel so bad for you.)

4. Visit an apple orchard!

I love to do this. Picking apples and making apple cider with my new fresh fruit never gets old, and it just so happens to be a gift that keeps on giving! The cider is delicious, as are the apples themselves. And the orchards make for beautiful picture backdrops if you're into photography.

5. Buy a cozy sweater! (Or three. Or five. Or ten.)

This one's pretty self-explanatory. My favorite fall shopping trips end with a new sweater, a witchy new book, and a new Autumn-scented candle to try out. My fall wardrobe consists mainly of boots, sweaters, flannel, jeans, and leggings. If it's comfortable and cute, it's perfect for me. Find the perfect fall wardrobe that makes you feel great and you'll notice how much more interesting going about your daily beeswax can be.

6. Do all the Haunted Houses you can, while you can!

Okay, I'm as big a chicken as the next girl who watched "Don't Look Under The Bed" at too young an age, but even I love haunted houses. The trick to conquer my inner Courage-The-Cowardly-Dog is to go in a big group of friends! That way, I'm always holding on to at least two other people, and I'm not the only one screaming! It feels good to step out of comfort zone every October, and I look forward to Haunted Housing as early in the year as August.

7. Decorate, decorate, decorate!

My go-to store is definitely Wal-Mart, especially with my college budget. My roommate and I love to go to thrift stores and dollar stores as well and just find odd little things that make our apartment feel less like college housing and more like Halloweentown. Dress it up or dress it down,, get spooky or elegant, it doesn't matter. Just try your hand at decorating for fall or Halloween this year! It's so much fun, I promise.

8. Go to a costume party.

Unleash your inner Elle Woods, ladies, this is your time to shine. I personally went trick-or-treating as a dinosaur last year, but hey, if you wanna wear it, wear it! Go out with your friends and have fun being someone (or something!) else for the night! You won't regret it.

9. Do a ghost tour with your friends!

Okay, this one definitely hits up with number 6. Step out of your comfort zone and have a spooky night out with the gang! Dibs on the Velma costume though. Jinkies!

10. Go to a bonfire.

We all know someone who throws a bonfire party at least every other weekend in thefFall. Grab your flannel and your Pumpkin Spice Latte and go for it! They can be small and intimate or large and ragin', however you like it. The one think you can't forget though: the marshmallows! Go crazy.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
