Falling for Fall

♥ Happy Autumn Equinox!!! ♥

It was 97 degrees where I live today, but it doesn’t change the fact that autumn is here at last! And I did everything in my power to celebrate it; the changing of seasons tends to intertwine with our lives and you can just “feel” the change in the air.

First off – my autumn leaf headband has made its debut of the year. It was about time to air out this bad boy, and the first day of fall is always the day for that!

I’m wearing fall-inspired eyeshadow that has glitter in it! Yay!

Last night, before walking into the house of a birthday get-together I was going to, I noticed the chill in the night air and that fall scent. ♥ I then looked up and saw the International Space Station drifting across the sky, which I hadn’t seen in a long time. So that was like…magical.

If you ever want to see the International Space Station but you aren’t sure where to start, download the Sky Guide app! You can have it notify you when the ISS is passing over, and the sky map will point out where it’s at.

By now, I recognize it immediately in the sky…it’s like seeing an old friend…

The dress is from Forever 21. ♥ I love it so much…

I had coffee earlier today and I sat out on the Starbucks patio, enjoying the day and read quite a bit. I ended my day with a Pumpkin Smash smoothie from Jamba Juice, and a short walk at Woodward Park. There is a gigantic smoke cloud from a wildfire billowing in the background on the right, somewhere in the far off mountains. Yikes…

How do you celebrate fall? I have many fall scented candles…which I have lit, as I type this. I like to eat more apples (than I already do…geeeez, I eat a lot of apples), spend a little more time outside, and (pretty soon) visit the pumpkin patch. ♥

  1. Happy fall to you too! Your autumn ensemble is lovely, especially your (bad boy, LOL) headband. And that’s cool about the ISS; I never knew you could see it, let alone track it. I like how you photographed your smoothie against the scenery. It’s subtle but unexpected, a little artsy slice of life. Also, how it’s called Pumpkin Smash — like Smashing Pumpkins!

  2. This is the first time, I think, you’ve worn a simple dress that allows your beautiful lines to show through. (Hubba-Hubba)! A very welcome change from bundling on layers! I have noticed that you wear blouses and pencil skirts very well. Just noticing…~ :Doing great, Samantha! I should stop by more often, huh?
