Falls to the Wall Weekend Fun

Although there are many great things about autumn in NYC, having a suburban, Midwest background leaves some more seasonality to be desired than what the city can offer. Wanting to fill this void, a few of my friends from the Buckeye State and I headed North to Outhouse Orchards, in Croton Falls, NY this past Saturday to fulfill our craving for all things “fall”.

This fantastic place is only about an hour outside of NYC and is accessible via  the Metro North! I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone wanting to escape the city for a day and truly experience the best things about this great season.


Keep Me Walking, October Road

October is my favorite month of the year. Once in high school, I had my birthday celebration in October because that’s when I thought I should have been born. I know, that’s super bratty and obnoxious. Yes, I am an only child; what’s your point?. I digress… I crafted a Polyvore with some pretty cool stuff that’s getting me excited for my favorite month! Enjoy.

Fall Fantasies

Fall Fantasies

According to Merriam-Webster:

fan·ta·sy  noun \ˈfan-tə-sē, -zē\ — something that is produced by the imagination,  an idea about doing something that is far removed from normal reality, the act of imagining something

Although my first Polyvore details things which aren’t that removed from the realms of reality, it does showcase some of the items/sentiments I’ve been yearning for lately. Yesterday’s bout of frigid air was just the first of many, and I know my seasonal cravings for hot coffee, TV-saturated days off, and Ohio bonfires are just beginning. I think that a navy leather tote, tortoise iPhone cover and brand new blogging camera would be the perfect artifacts to help me transition into the cool autumn days, no? ;)
