Hey friends! It’s been a long time since I’ve done a Friday’s Five post but with so many things to love this time of year, how can I not reserve some time to share with you my current favorites of the season? Today I bring you Friday’s Fave Five – Fall Edition. We’re talking warm beverages, my favorite vegan fall apparel, and glorious weather activities that have been filling my heart and soul.
Wanna take a look into what I’ve been loving lately?
This weather; it’s amazing. The world has been colored in yellows and reds. The breeze of Autumn lingers in the air and courses through my entire being. I mentioned the other day that I’ve been sneaking away from work once a week to enjoy the outdoors, a warm beverage, a little people watching, new connections, and present living to this beautiful season. This simple weekly routine fills my heart and soul immensely.
October, you couldn’t be more beautiful and I’m soaking you all in!
Speaking of warm beverages, my go-to beverage of choice has been my Golden Chai Latte. Made with black tea and all the best spices: cinnamon, cardamom, pepper, anise, and ginger THEN made better with a pinch of turmeric to provide healthy, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant benefits to my morning routine. I’ve been replacing one of these every day for my morning coffee and am seeing incredible healthful effects including more energy, healthier skin, healthier digestion, less anxiety. What’s not to love?
And because this weather has cooled down, I decided to get myself a new jacket. This jacket, specifically. A vegan faux-leather jacket with attached hoodie which I love because a) it’s adorable (right?!) b) it’s incredibly warm and a little bit waterproof (perfect for this lifelong Oregonian who still doesn’t own a raincoat) c) it matches this autumnal world (and my freckles).
And, speaking of new fall attire, I also got these new vegan ankle boots after spending the last rainy season with holes in the bottom of my boots and soaking wet feet for 8 months straight. This year, at 35, I decided it was time to adult-up and stay dry. So I ordered these faux-leather ankle boots and been enjoying the comfort, style, and dry feet so far this fall.
And finally, my fall tote bags are here! The perfect (and may I say, darling?) bag for all your fall outings: picnics, harvest festivals, and pumpkin patches, oh my! Not to mention, it’s become my favorite reusable grocery bag. While I’m still working on getting ordering set up through my website, you can reserve your My Darling Vegan tote bag today by emailing me.
