Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, and now that it’s officially here on my side of the world, that means I get to be extra and thrive on the seasonal activities. So for today’s posts, I wanted to share my fall must-haves for this year. If you want to check out my previous fall recommendations, you can do so here.
Pumpkin spice lattes
I’m not a coffee drinker, but the scent of pumpkin spice and coffee awakens a makes me a sudden fan. I’ve tried Stok’s pumpkin cold brew coffee this season, and it’s light and refreshing, but if you’re a fan of the strong stuff, try the Pumpkin cream cold brew from Starbucks.
Podcasts and Youtubers
Last year I recommended the podcast Spooked as the perfect scary storytelling podcast to listen to during fall, and it has returned once again this year!
However, if you finish binging all of Spooked or just need a year-round storytelling podcast listen to Stories with Sapphire. Created and hosted by Sapphire Sandola of Something Scary on youtube, this podcast emphasizes legends and stories from Asian countries and cultures, which are fascinating and spooky. However, the podcast explores topics and interviews from other non-Asian countries as well.
Daicy makes videos about legends and ghost stories all over Latin America. And often includes videos of the paranormal caught on camera.
Fall picnics/pumpkin patches
Outdoor activities are a must for me in the fall. I just find a stroll through some pumpkins and scattered hay the perfect relief after a hot So Cal summer.
But on days where I don’t want to dodge excited kids and people, I like to set out a picnic in my backyard. It’s less hot, and I feel more comfortable.
Also if you’re in the LA area, and have never gone definitely try to score tickets to Freeform’s Halloween Road. They are unfortunately, already sold out for this year but I think it’s a good fall activity to do at least once.
I have an apple tree in my backyard, and I’ve had to brainstorm ways to use the fruit in my cooking. While apples and peanut butter are my go-to, I’ve recently tried this apple crumble cheesecake recipe, and it was delish!
I’m thinking of trying this recipe for thanksgiving and other fall gatherings.
This year I gave in to my inner child and purchased halloween themed sheets. I bought these in late August and they’ve been stretched on my bed ever since.
These sheets not only bring me joy but tie my room together with the rest of my fall decor.
Lastly, what would fall be without the perfect book, and as a book blog, it would be a disservice not to recommend one, so if you really want to feel unsettled, check out The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black.
I recently reviewed the Coldest Girl in Coldtown, and I kept thinking this book has the perfect spooky vibes.
So far my fall season has been a bit chaotic but I have grounded myself with these fall activities. I hope you’re fall season is cozy and wrapped in pumpkin spice.
until next time I’ll be living in libros,
