Fall essentials.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday! There is no doubt: fall is here. Which is why I want to take my change and share some of my favorite fall essentials with you. 



Warm sweaters - I am always cold so I need to try to stay warm. 
Warm socks - I recently bought some over knee socks and I cannot put into words how much I love them. I am also loving my new socks with dog and tiger faces on them. 
Animals - always. <3
Hot water bottle - especially a cute one that looks like a donkey.
MuLondon moisturizerMuLondon is one of my favorite brands ever. I also recommend their face wash. All vegan and natural.
Books - I guess that's not a secret. Love spending a Sunday on the couch with a good book. 
Tea - I am in love with licorice& mint tea right now. 
Nail polish - one of my fave brands is Beauty Without Cruelty.
Lip balm and lip stick - there are many cruelty free and vegan options now. I always use lip balm but even more in fall and winter. 
Body butter - I have very dry skin so that's a must.
Candles - make your evening even cozier. I love all the fall scents - caramel, apple, pumpkin...
Warm blanket - As I said, I am always cold. 
Hot chocolate - made with almond milk.
Pears - one of my fave fruits in fall. 
Magazines -Science, animals, DIY, cooking...there are many interesting magazines. 
Drawing & sewing - learning how to sew is on my bucket list for this fall. 
Soup - red lentil soup with curry and coconut milk is my favorite.
Long walks - perfect for fall. 
Warm boots - boots are my favorites. I always look forward to wearing boots again. 
Chocolate - perfect reading snack. 
Foot cream - especially when it smells like candy mint.
Movies and tv shows - October is perfect to watch some horror movies. Plus all the fall shows are back. Hello, Criminal Minds, Bones and Chicago Fire!
Flea markets - the best flea markets take place in fall. Perfect thing to do on a sunny Sunday. 
Lavendar pillow spray - makes falling asleep even better. 
Hand cream - a must in fall. Could not live without it. 

What are your fall favorites? 
Have a fantastic Sunday!

    1. Hi Ankita! Glad you like my list. :) Fall really is my favorite season! Samosa sound interesting! I have heard of it but never tried it! I need to make some as well! :)

  4. I love that autumn is the perfect time for eating comfort foods - soups and stews, mashed potatoes, curry... all the things that you're just too hot to eat in summer!
    And tea, of course. I love to curl up on the sofa with a blanket, a cup of tea and my cross stitch. And fluffy socks - fluffy socks are a must in autumn/winter.

    1. I agree. I love curries so much! And soup! Both perfect for fall. And potatoes are my favorites anyway! :) Fluffy socks are the best! :)

  5. I'm always cold too - not so much outside but the air conditioning is usually freezing at work and the hubby likes it cold at home too. I have a few pairs of fluffy socks, because as long as my feet are warm the rest of me is too. Hand and body lotion are a big must for me - I have such dry skin that I'm always slathering myself with something! 😃

    1. I have a huge problem with the air conditioning in America. It is always too cold for me. Going to the movies is really bad. I always have to bring a cardigan and a scarf! Even in summer. I also have a very dry skin so I try to use hand lotion and body butter as much as possible!

  6. I *just* got the very same edition of The Rosie Effect! Part of me is super excited to read it because I loved about 90% of the first book, but another part of me is so worried it won't live up and that a sequel will feel like jumping the shark. Can't wait to see what you think of it - and I'm crossing my fingers that it ends up being fantastic!

    1. Haha, cool that you got the same edition. I ordered it the day it got published but I did not start reading it yet. I am saving it for the weekend. It is rainy and windy here anyway. I totally understand how you feel about it. I do not want to be disappointed either! Let me know what you think about it!

    1. I never even liked lavender that much before I got the spray. It promises you a good sleep. :) I think it really helps.

  8. I'm starting to stock up on winter clothing and pining after a pair of boots, all while drinking a pumpkin spice latte this morning. Yep it's fall (just doesn't feel like it outside)

    1. It clearly feels like fall here today. It is grey and rainy and windy! Hope you will have some nice fall weather soon. I need to go and look for some sweaters and boots soon! And I would not mind a pumpkin spice latte...I want to try to make my own!

  9. Have you tried body butter from the Body Shop? It's my fav! It can't seem to get cold enough in California for comfy clothing yet though... boo!

    1. I have not tried this body butter yet! what does it smell like? I would love to try the pumpkin body butter by Trader Joe's! It sounds delicious! I am glad to have some nice fall weather right now! Hope you can start wearing your boots soon too! :)

  10. I have to moisturize a lot in the fall and winter, too. I use Philosophy brand products - they don't test on animals, but I'm not sure if that makes them vegan or not. I LOVE my face lotion from there - Hope In A Jar. Nothing I've ever tried has been as good as that one!

    1. My skin is so dry as well, it is really bad! I need to moisturize all the time! I have not heard of Philosophy before but I just googled that brand and their parent company is Coty which tests on animals. It's a grey area but I avoid companies whose parent companies test on animals. But thank you for your help!

  11. What a lovely list of your fall favorites…Licorice and mint tea? That sounds lovely, may I ask where did you get these tea? Hard to list my favorites here actually… I think I like almost everything you’d mentioned so far.
