I'm *obsessed* with fall—this is how I will be romanticizing the best season of the year

Cue the Gilmore Girls rewatch

When the clock strikes midnight on the Autumnal Equinox, my fall fairy godmother waves her magic wand to activate my seasonal powers. From then on, I'm a cider-sipping, Halloween movie-watching, sweater weather queen. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!

Naturally, a few fall buys are in order to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. New cardigans and moody red nail polish shades are givens, but this year I wanted to take things a step further. I love the cozy and inviting feeling that comes along with the season, so I decided play that up in various aspects of my life: from my home decor selections to my beauty routine picks. 

Plus, as astrologers indicate, the cosmos offer up a perfect time for a spiritual refresh during the start of autumn. Any negativity or uncertainty can be left behind as we tackle this next chapter with honesty, grace...and a PSL or two.

"It is a time when we will be reflecting upon, and listening to the matters within our own hearts, and is known as a time of enlightenment," says Patrick Price of Nebula. "This enlightenment is offered to us to allow us to look within and assess how true we are being to ourselves."

I don't know about you, but my heart says, "Spiced Cider Candles."

Fall buys to help romanticize the season

From playful accessories to new books, body scrubs, and slippers, here's everything I'm buying keep cozy this fall. We strongly suggest starting this time of year with a marathon of Gilmore Girls. (We don't make the rules, we just abide by them.)
