BB9516_10 Things to be Happy About(3)

1| Labor Day Weekend

Happy Labor Day, friends! I’m happy to say that I got to spend the weekend relaxing with family and friends for part of this extended weekend. But who doesn’t love a three-day weekend followed by only four days of work? I hope you all enjoy your Labor Day!

2| Fall Candles from Bath & Body Works

I would be lying if I said I didn’t already purchase some candles from the Bath & Body Work’s Fall Collection. But can you blame me? I’m serious when I say that Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow is one of the best scents ever! Make sure you check out their collection ASAP.

3| Sweaters without Sweating

Isn’t the best weather when you can wear sweaters outdoors, but you’re not sweating and you don’t need a jacket? For me, September offers the best type of weather and you can only enjoy it during this month here in Pennsylvania. I’m going to enjoy every minute of it.

4| Perfect Temperatures

Going off of number three is that September is the best type of weather altogether because no matter what you’re doing outside, it’s in the mid 50s, so it’s not too hot or too cold. It’s the perfect weather for fall festivals, and crossing everything off your fall bucket list.

5| Read a Book Day

One of my goals for this month is to read at least two books. With a full-time job working more than 40 hours a week, it can be difficult to sit down, relax and enjoy reading a book even if you’re a book lover like myself. But I plan to meet this goal keeping this day in mind.


6| Change in Season

Fall is my favorite season because you can feel a change in the season and it sets happier mood for so many people who love this time of year. The leaves begin to change and the a comfy, cozy vibe all around you (mostly due to candles and Starbucks PSLs.)

7| First Day of Fall

You all know I’m counting down the days to September 21st when it’s the official first day of fall. Mainly because I know I’ll be called basic until drinking my PSLs, burning my BBW candles and creating my fall bucket list for the season.

8| Positive Thinking Day

I’m all about #PositiveVibes. Personally, I believe whatever energy you put out in the universe is what you will receive. So remember that when you’re going through difficult times. There’s always something to be happy or positive about.

9| Fall Fashion

Let’s get one thing out of the way. Fall fashion is the best fashion. I love layering clothes for a comfortable, chic look; and I love wearing all the boots for this time of year. There’s nothing better than pulling out all my fall clothes that have been in storage since last season.

10| Back to School

Although I’m not going to back to school, I act like it by setting aside time to learn and educate myself whether I’m studying a new language, reading about a new topic, or watching documentaries. I never want to stop learning, so I make it a mission to learn every day.

What are you happy about now that it’s September? Make sure to share in the comments below!
