the half of the week is over and I didn´t do anything until today and have nothing planned the next days including the weekend which means we are going to stay in every day and enjoy the cool Fall weather with hot chocolate and all the delicious foods.
I also have to say sorry for the flood of picuters but I love Fall and decorating our house so I really couldn´t decide which ones to pick. So when it comes to Fall decoration I usually stay true to my theme.
It wouldn´t be Fall decor without any pumpkins and in my opinions there can´t be enough and I have some everywhere. From real mini pumpkins to creme colored ceramic colored to real looking miniatures. Pumpkins are the best.
Candles are not only great to make your house smell like the holiday you are going for but also for decoration. From Yankee Candles to Bath & Body Works there isn´t a ugly candle. Beautifully made and in so many different colors available candles are for sure an eyecatcher.
Decorating with all the common and rich Fall colors like burgundy, orange and a golden yellow provide a even more fallish surrounding. I got some adorable candle holder and also got a bunch of artificial flowers in said colors. This really helps to set the mood for all your decor.
Are you decorating seasonal or do you have the same decor year round?
since this is the week which makes Fall finally official I have some fun Fall posts for you guys coming. The first of all is a home decor post I am sharing today. I love to play with my table scapes throughout the seasons and of course I had to try out a new one since Fall is my favorite season. I was thinking about a leopard print Fall inspired table scape but after I saw these vibrant burgundy pieces I was sold immediately. Also this might be the more Fall appropriate color. But still thinking about the leopard too.
Most of the pieces I got from Depot Online but I am also trying to link similar pieces for you. Table scapes have somehow always been one of my favorites to play with in Fall and Winter. I get so many ideas and I can get really creative by setting them out.
The pumpkin shaped plates are the perfect pieces to serve aperitifs or little snacks before or after dinner. A charcuterie or cheese plate – how I made – is also great and a huge crowd pleaser.
To set some focus and also have the color reflect in the table decor I got small plates in burgundy for the salad and also little small velvet leaves in the same shades. Throwing in as much color as possible never hurts.
Is there a home decor trend you love above any other thing?
since Fall is finally here I started decorating inside and of course ordered myself some Fall candles. Candles always get me in the right mood for any season. And since my favorite season is Fall the most of my candles smell like pumpkin – also my favortie scent.
I light another candle every night and love that my whole house smells like Fall then.
Staying at home on a cool and misty Fall day and cuddling up on the sofa with some comfortable loungewear, a great book and an awesome smelling pumpkin candle is THE dream every time Fall rolls around.
Most of my candles are from Village or Yankee Candle or Bath & Body Works and I get them over Candle-Dream or the Yankee Candle site.
These are the candles I got for this years Fall decoration:
Leaves, Thankful and Pumpkin Patch from Bath & Body Works
it´s Monday morning, your alam clock is going viral, you are tired as hell and your bones feel heavier than ever. There is still a lot to do until you can get ready for work and leave the house and honestly you really don´t feel like queen of the day. I got you girl. Waking up and looking like in the picutres above probably only happens once in a lifetime or on a well rested vacation. but I can help here.
I know most of us hate Mondays and that is just natural, cause the first day after the weekend is always the most dreaded one. If it was Tuesday we all would hate Tuesday. There are just a few people I know who seem to like the first day of the week or make it seem like they do.
And guess what ? We can be one of them too. I am sharing five simple tasks you can complete before the new week, to somewhat look forward to it.
#1 Clean up your kitchen on Sunday night
This might be kind of random but believe me, the feel of a clean and tidy kitchen is unbeatable. You can spare yourself the upcoming stress of entering your kitchen in the morning and finding a huge mess you need to clean up after work which already puts you in a bad mood. Do yourself a favor and take care of that the night before.
#2 Make a nice appointment
Book yourself a beauty treatment or go to a sports class you like or even make your own beauty night at home on Monday. Just schedule something nice you are looking forward too and the first day of the week will go by way faster. Believe me. I always have my line dance class on Monday and I love it, so there is at least one thing on Mondays I really like and go right after work. This leaves a positive feedback of the day on your mind.
#3 Work off everything on the day before going into the weekend
I know this is not possible all of the time but at least try to get rid of the tasks you´ve been avoiding all week.
Preparation is key…
#4 Lay out your clothes the night before
If you are anything like me you will need to do that. I am in no way a morning person and I can´t decide on anything in the mornings and also have no kind of creativity or whatsoever. I really can not find something to wear. I would stand in front of my closet and stand and stand and wouldn´t find a single thing to wear. This is why I am preparing my outfit the night before includig everything that goes with it from underwear to jewelry. I have been doing this for years (for every day) and it saves me a huge amount of time.
#5 Meal prep
That´s a easy one but often forgotten in all the hurry of the days. If you are cooking regularly this is for you. I like to eat the leftovers of dinner for next days lunch so I am always making a little more than we need. Also if you prefer cold dinner you can easily prep salad bowls for 3 days in advance. We don´t have a cafeteria at work or anything to get food in under 20 minutes nearby so I would have to take food with me anyways and to make sure I like and eat it I change the meals I am prepping weekly.
Have you ever tried any of these tipps ? I am constantly trying to improve myself to start fresh and looking forward into the new week. It is so hard for me as I am so not a morning person but I have the feeling the stricter I am the better it gets.
Do you have any other tipps please feel free to share in the comments.
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
