Weekend Plans: September 30 & October 1

This week has been the best of times and the worst of times. I officially started my new job this week (best of times). On Tuesday, I came down with a terrible cold that is just now coming to an end (worst of times). I am so happy it is Friday and I have the next two days to relax. Fingers crossed I will come into work fully healthy on Monday. I plan on taking it easy this weekend.

Saturday, September 30

Canalside is hosting Fall Fest this weekend. Last year my friend and I went and had a great time! I am hoping to feel up to it tomorrow.

Sunday, October 1

There is only one thing I plan to do on Sundays for the next few months. Watch football. The Bills surprised everyone last week and won against Denver. Here's hoping they can pull another W against the Falcons this week!

Trending: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Is it just me or are stars making a comeback into the fashion world? I first noticed this trend when I fell in love with these booties and this blouse. Once I started browsing more sites for some fall pieces, I keep seeing more and more stars. I am also obsessed with this sweater that I may have to order ASAP. It just looks so cozy, and mixes my favorite color for fall with fun, over-sized stars. Paired with jeans and slip on mules, this would be my fall uniform. What do you think of this trend?

Fall Home Essentials

I had planned this post a few weeks back, but as you can see I am just getting to it now. It is quite timely since I am currently battling a cold, and all I want are cozy blankets, candles and hot tea. Coincidentally, all of these things also fall (no pun intended) into my fall home essentials. When September comes around, even it's if 80 and sunny (like it has been here), I go into Fall Mode. The blankets come out, the sweater replace the summer pieces, and the smell of Leaves by Bath & Body Works wafts from my room. I do, occasionally, add some fun fall details like a little 'Hello Fall' wooden sign from the Target Dollar Spot, but in the past few years I tried not to spend too much money on knickknacks. While I will certainly gravitate towards items during my Hobby Lobby run, they usually sit in the cart until I head to checkout and ask myself, "Do I really need this?" Lately, the answer has been no, and it has been good for my soul and my bank account. However, I could not say no to this 'Give Thanks' mug. I saw it and knew it was coming home with me.
How you you prepare for fall? What are some of your fall essentials?

Weekend Plans: September 9 & 10

Happy September! I am so excited that fall is right around the corner! I have already worn some new comfy sweaters, and I am currently watching college football as I type this up.

Saturday, September 9

No big plans today, but tonight I will be watching the Ohio State game and making personal pizzas! Yum!

Sunday, September 10

As you may have guessed from the photo above, I am going to the Buffalo Bills home opener tomorrow! I am so excited for football season. So many people I know are going to this game and the weather is supposed to be perfect! I cannot wait to cheer on my team and eat Buffalo Chicken Wing dip!
