Get Your Fall On

Get Your Fall On

You feel that? Do you feel the lack of sweat on your body as you walk to class? Do you feel those goosebumps running across your arms and legs? Is your hair getting staticky? It is happening, ladies and gentleman. Summer is sadly, and slowly, coming to an end. But fear not! Fall is rapidly approaching, and with it comes a multitude of spectacular events! So grab your cardigans and your pumpkins, because you are about to find out a few reasons why this fall will be simply incredible. 

Food and beverage

Everyone gives white girls such a hard time about how important their beloved pumpkin spice flavored coffee is to them, but I think we can agree that all of the world ravishes this gift of fall. Let the white girls indulge! It is friggin’ good, and you know it. Go get one. It will drastically improve your mood. However, coffee is not the only thing that gets a boost from the fall season. Pumpkin pie is making its debut with no shame, along with pumpkin bread. That’s not all, though! Despite the fact that soups are available all year long, they thrive in fall. Who wouldn’t want to warm up to a bowl of soup after a chilly fall day?! 

Clothing switchover

While this doesn’t affect guys as much, it is still a major impact on all of society. Alright, ladies, put away your Nike shorts and break out those leggings. I know, I can just feel the eye rolls that are happening out there, but it is a necessary part of fall. All tanks and shorts must be stowed away for the season, as leggings and cardigans get their time to shine. And don’t forget about the fuzzy socks, boots, hats, and scarves. What a time to be alive, folks. 

Pumpkin fun

Who knew that a squash could bring people such joy. Going to the pumpkin patch immensely improves my mood. There is something special about the combination of crisp air, crunchy leaves, and picking out pumpkins with friends and family. There is nothing quite like it! Pumpkin carving is, of course, the obvious choice when a pumpkin is in your possession, but there are so many more options when using it as a decor item. Do a quick search on Pinterest and your mind will be blown by creative ways to utilize a pumpkin. 

The smells, oh my!

Here they come. Candles and wax melts begin their season. The yummiest of smells will now permeate throughout our rooms and homes -- cinnamon, baked goods, pumpkin, autumn air, as well as various combinations of these. There is nothing quite like walking into a room that smells of cinnamon pumpkin after you have been out in the cold. It is life changing, and I must take part in this experience. Join me. 

Holidays are just around the corner

Fall means Halloween. Then, there is Thanksgiving, and then Christmas. This is important, and I think about it a lot. Fall is the gift that keeps on giving, holiday after holiday. So hold on tight, friends! The bestest time of year is knocking on our door. I am ready to stuff my face, and I am ready for you, Santa. 

Happy Fall! I hope you welcome this delightful season with open arms. Put a pumpkin in your room, or something. Go lay in some leaves. Throw them in the air if you want! Bake something. Put on a cardigan. Just enjoy.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
