Fallin' in love with fall

I don't know if you've heard, but fall is my favorite season and here's why

Fallin' in love with fall

Even though I live in Arizona and my definition of fall is 90-degree weather and trying to convince myself that it's cool enough to wear sweaters, I still love the season with all my heart.

Growing up in Iran, our school year actually starts in the fall months. So technically, we would be starting school at the end of September which was very nice because the weather was cooler, usually, there would be rain involved and I got to wear my favorite jackets with my school uniform. Plus, back in Iran we actually have snow and so snow days were always a plus because guess what? The days did not get added to our school year! That gives so many bragging rights with some of my friends who live in the Midwest and the East Coast.

There are certain things that I think really make fall what it is. When I hear the word fall, I instantly think of leaves changing color (even though, that just doesn't happen here), long nights, cold mornings, and hot beverages.

Especially now that we are in a global pandemic, I've really tried to make the most of my fall season. I've hung up little lights in my room to give it more of a cozy vibe. I've dug out my sweaters and try to wear them with shorts so I don't overheat. Last but not least, I have pumpkin spice K-Cups and have been drinking one every day.

So here is my list of why fall is the best season out there.

The cute clothes!

I don't about you, but I personally am not the biggest fan of summer clothes. I just think that fall clothing is cuter because of all the lovely oversized sweaters available. Plus, you can always find the cutest outfits to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner. I just love all the warm tone colors and the fact that it's acceptable to layer your clothes as much as you want. Fall clothing to me is the most fashionable out of all the seasons. Winter is a close second, but sometimes your outfits are hidden because you have to wear a puffy coat in order to not freeze.

Everything pumpkin everywhere!

I'm talking about the pumpkin spice lattes, the pumpkin decorations, the pumpkin scented candles, literally anything that involves a pumpkin starts showing up at around the end of September. I don't know what it is about pumpkins, but they get me so excited. I read in an article that we don't like pumpkins because they taste good. We just like them because they make us feel good. That could not be more true. When I see a pumpkin, I immediately think of fall and I think it plays a huge role as to why I love the season so much.

Obviously, the weather starts to cool down (at least a bit).

I feel like a lot of people think that they don't get the fall experience because they live in Arizona. While that might be a little bit true, I think that we also underestimate how cool it could get in Arizona. Something I've noticed is that when Arizona has wind chill, it feels like your face is getting cut by how cold it is. I especially felt like this when I had work early in the mornings. I just think that Arizona also gets cold and you can bust out the heavy jackets, just maybe not as often. That's what Flagstaff is for.

There's love in the air!

Fall is known to be sweater weather and cuddle weather. I just think that everyone gets a little emotional and sensitive during fall which leads us to find romance, connect with friends and family and even get a new dog (trust me, I've seen people adopt dogs mostly in the fall.) I just think that the vibes are just so much cuter in fall and everyone just becomes a little happier to snuggle under a blanket and live their cozy dreams.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

64976

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

7 Reasons 'Hubie Halloween' Is A Must-Watch Halloween Film For October Movie Nights

Just knowing it's an Adam Sandler movie, you can assume it's funny but very ridiculous.

Netflix

"Hubie Halloween" was just released on October 7. It follows Hubie Dubois in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween. He patrols the town to make sure people are safe. He's the kindest and caring person in the town and also the most bullied.

This poor man is scared of everything. He screams when he sees scary decorations and when people prank him. Definitely a laugh, but when I watched it, I felt bad for him. The one person that pulled at my heartstrings is Violet Valentine, a woman he had a crush on since high school. She's super nice to him and stands up for him when she can. It was great seeing someone, other than his grandma, on Hubie's side.

While this is my first ever presidential election, I have voted before in others, including at least one other "off" year election. I can honestly say that one of the things that made voting for the first time interesting was that I personally don't really identify myself with either party completely.

"Emily in Paris" is one of the newest Netflix original series and it began streaming on the platform on October 2.

I knew this was going right to the top of my watch list because I have a serious girl crush on Lily Collins, it's from the creator of "Sex and the City", and the plot feeds directly into my "Mamma Mia" fantasy of just hopping on a plane and killing it in a whole new country. Not going to lie, the series has its slightly cringe-y moments, but that honestly makes me love it even more.
