Stimulate Your Senses

Fall candles
One of my favorite parts about the fall season is pumpkin scents. These pumpkin scented candles from Bath and Body Works are my favorite ones that they carry. This is a great time to shop their candles because they are having the 2 for $24 sale right now. This sale is ending today at midnight, therefore shop their candles now if you want to save. Bath and Body Works is also having half off many of their body mists, lotion, and shower gel. This sale also ends at midnight! I also have a 20% off entire purchase code to share: FREE20
Tastes of Fall
Another great way to enjoy the season with delicious pumpkin scents is to bake a pumpkin loaf! Above is a pecan pumpkin loaf mix by Williams-Sonoma that is absolutely divine. It would not officially be fall without at Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, they will always be my favorite drink from Starbucks. This Pecan Pumpkin Butter will give any fall lover the taste of the season every morning on your toast. 
Here is another great pumpkin loaf recipe to try this fall:
1 can pumpkin puree
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour        
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Step 2 - Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowel
Step 3 - Grease and floor three 7 x 3 inch loaf pans
Step 4 - Pour all the ingredients into the loaf pans
Step 5 - Bake for 50 minutes

Enjoy your taste of fall, this recipe will be a new family favorite without a doubt. 

Whether you are stimulating your senses with the smells of fall, tastes of fall, or the sight of great looking fall home decor, this season will be the perfect time to embrace the little things in life. Remember to never take the seasons for granted, as someone who has grown up on the east coast and always had an opportunity to witness the changing of the seasons, I am now living in Hawaii where the weather is rather consistent. It is either 80-90 degrees and sunny or 80-90 degrees with rain. That is the limit of our fall weather out here. Therefore, enjoy the visionary beauty of the changing leaves and relief from the hot summer months with the cool fall breeze! I will miss those little moments of fall, but on the bright side, at least I can bake lots of pumpkin bread, fill my place with the aroma of pumpkin scented candles and decorate every nook and cranny with these adorable fall decor picks above. 


  1. This post made me wish I was at home with all my pumpkin candles lit eating some pumpkin bread! I totally hit up the Bath & Body Works sale this weekend! Pumpkin Caramel Latte was my favorite scent from last year--this year I am loving the Pumpkin Pie scent!
