Three words: it’s fall y’all.
It’s finally cooling down in Phoenix and if you live in Arizona and it is October, you know that means: PUMPKINS, CANDLES, FUZZY SOCKS AND WARM COFFEE.
I’m not even going to be salty about this double post in one day because I wanted to share my fall inspo ideas. A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling a little down and needed to bring some comfort into my house and make it a home. The Dollar Store opened its automatic doors and led me to a fall paradise of $1 finds. I felt like my mom and I were going a little crazy with all of the goodies, but when I checked out I had only had $20 worth of fall finds in my cart. I repeat: only $20!! Excited and high on deals as I was we rushed home to spread out our fab finds. We had previously bought everything to make wreaths so that is what I was set out to do. Little did I know when I got home I did not know that I had a lot more than just “little” things.
So, I did not drink warm coffee.. but I did add pumpkins, put on my fuzzy socks and lit a fall candle while watching Gossip Girl (P.S. I’ve seen this show like a thousand times and I still have a crush on Nate and Chuck and if I ever ran into them in real life I’d totally fan girl over them). It is crazy how going to the Dollar Store or moving things around can make a house feel more like home. That coffee table? Made from wood pallets I found with a white pumpkin candle and little glittery pumpkins added to it. The wreath on my front door? My mom and I had a wreath making party and all of the flowers on it are from no other than: THE DOLLAR STORE. Yep. You can thank me later, send me your fall decorations and crown me fall princess or just call me Joanna Gains because let’s be honest my house is straight out of a Fixer Upper episode and I ain’t even mad about it.
Head to the Dollar Store or Home Goods or wherever and put some fall decorations up (and light a fall candle too) because it will make you happy. Isn’t that all that counts anyways?
“Psychology says the person who tries to keep everyone else happy often ends up feeling the loneliest”. So remember darling, fall in love with yourself (and fall things) first. Comment with your fall decorations and other fall ideas!
