Falling Into Fall

Today I finally embraced the season by going out to the local farms and enjoying all things Fall. My boyfriend came along for the ride (he’s still getting used to my blogging and photo-taking obsession), and it was so much fun! We went apple picking, cider tasting, jelly shopping, and of course – picked the perfect pumpkins! Other than each other of course… But ultimately, my favorite thing about Fall is the fashion style that comes along with it! There’s nothing I love more than putting on a comfy sweater and a blanket scarf to stay cozy during all the festivities.

Shop this look: Sweater – $39 (Nordstrom), Scarf – $25 (ModCloth), Boots – $50 (Target)

I was pleasantly surprised how well my boyfriend was able to handle the camera considering he’s not one of those ‘picture-happy’ guys all the time. But taking photos was actually his favorite part of the day! I don’t know why I never asked him sooner! Anyways, after some pics here and some pics there we decided to look around and do some shopping…

We found this cute set-up at the High Country Orchard Farm in the Greenbluff area of Spokane, Washington. How cute is this! I couldn’t help but gawk over the vintage wooden decor and all the cute accessories they had. If you’re ever in the region, I would highly recommend stopping at this place! They have tons of fresh, handmade food and of course – apple cider! Yum!

Next, we headed off to the Harvest House and picked out some pumpkins to carve; however, we ended up finding some local Pumpkin beer and ended up using one of the pumpkins to make a beer tap (you can find out more on how to do this in my previous Fall post). It turned out way better than expected! So don’t forget to add that to this year’s Fall Bucket List: Try Pumpkin Beer.

I can’t get enough of Fall and all the wonderful things that come with it, but winter is quickly approaching so be sure to get in all the things you want to do before the snow starts falling!

What have been some of your favorite activities so far this season?

6 Sites That Earn You Money

Are you tired of your day job that doesn’t offer you anything special and unique to market yourself? Are you tired of not moving up in your company and you simply can’t do more than you already are? Why not quit and start working for yourself! You know you’re already a hard worker and when you work for yourself, you make the rules (and the hours, cha-ching!) These 6 sites allow you to work on your own time to generate your income:

Chloe and Isabel

Have you ever wanted to own an Etsy boutique, but have never known what to sell? Well this Chloe and Isabel is the perfect fit for you! They allow you to have your own boutique for shoppers, but provide all the products! How easy is that? I simply cannot get enough of this site! With the help of mentors and marketing specialists, you will have all the tools you need in order to be successful. Simply go to their site, apply to be a merchandiser, come up with the name for your shop, and start bringing in the revenue.

Etsy

Now, if you do have your own creative ideas and love to make your own products then Etsy is more the site for you! Again, you get to create a unique name for your shop and in just a few steps you’ll be on your way to selling products for your DIY and Pinterest-obsessed shoppers!

Scentsy

The new and innovative way to make your home, office, and kitchen smell amazing.  Scentsy’s are the new ‘candle’ and have tons of scents to choose from as well as adorable holders for your scents as well! You can join the Scentsy crew by becoming a consultant and selling their products for them all while earning commission.

ThredUp

Just sign up, send in your clothes, and you’re on your way!

Stella and Dot

This is another site similar to Chloe and Isabel that lets your sell their products by becoming a professional stylist. If you’re looking for an outlet to promote your fashion sense and advise others on their look and style, then this is a great opportunity for you! All you have to do is apply, purchase a starter kit, and start bringing in the dough.

FabFitFun

Another great sight to earn money on is FabFitFun – every time you refer a friend and they purchase a subscription through your link, FabFitFun will give you $15 towards your next purchase, whether that be a seasonal box, add-ons to your next box, or just shopping from their current products. And if you refer enough people, you could even get all your boxes for free!

What’s in the Box?

I got my first FabFitFun boxed in the mail this morning and what better way to start a Monday and the beginning of the week? FabFitFun is a subscription box that sends you the newest products and accessories every season so you’re always in tip-top shape with fashion and beauty trends. All box contents are a surprise, unless you opt to have add-ons with your box – which don’t worry, there is a surplus of as there are tons of items to choose from! So as you can see, I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for a package in the mail before, but you’ll understand why once I share with you all the amazing things that came inside 🙂

All my goodies ranged from french lavender body oil to a complete eye shadow pallet! I absolutely love all the products that FabFitFun was able to snag up for this year’s Fall box! One of my personal favorite items so far has been the toesox though – what a creative idea! It’s so fun to have little slip on socks, but the best part is that there’s room for your toes to breathe! So instead of toe sock, there toe-less socks. So fun!

This amazing travel mug has been another one of my favorite items from the box! It’s a nice, healthy size for avid coffee drinkers like me, and your drink will stay warm for hours! It’s awesome! Plus, who doesn’t like a rather flattering wake up call in the morning 😉

Lastly, this eye shadow palette is simply stunning! If you’ve ever used a Naked palette, it’s essentially like that! It’s an incredible product and I love the double-sided brush that came with it! This palette is perfect for my skin tone since they are neutral colors, and other boxes might have other palettes for different skin tones, interests, etc., but as for me – this couldn’t have been more perfect!

You can order FabFitFun as a seasonal subscription for $49.99/box or you can sign up for an annual subscription and receive 4 boxes for $179.99! But even better, with my discount code, you’ll get $10 off your first order! Get your box here: http://xo.fff.me/elR41 

All other items that came in the box: BrowGal eyebrow gel, SkinLaundry night serum, Spongelle bath scrub, ModCloth blanket scarf, Nature coloring book and color pencils, and Cottonelle wipes.
