Falling into piles of leaves
well hello there everyone! so I'm finally making a blog post... Anyways I hope you are all having a lovely fall so far an I decided to talk about fall today. Fall is usually marked by the start of school, but because some weirdo decided it would be best to start in the middle of summer fall is now marked by the change of weather. Contradictory to that, it still feels like summer here in LA, even though it is "fall". One of the hardest things to do here in LA is figuring out the seasons. The weather here is very weird, it feels like summer in the winter, and like winter in the middle of summer. Since the weather varies day by day there is no marker to the start and end of each season. Another hard thing to do is to figure out what is appropriate to wear, with the crazy weather. When it felt like fall here I was able to wear fall clothes, like sweaters, scarves, and boots. but when it is very hot, like in the high 70's, I would rather wear shirts as in a t-shirt. fall is also called "sweater weather", but that doesn't always work out here in LA. One of my favourite things about fall is apple cider, or more specifically caramel apple cider. I make my own caramel apple cider by heating up "spiced cider" from Trader Joe's and then mixing in the most amazing caramel sauce in the world, the fleur de seul caramel from trader joe's. Now unfortunately, Trader Joe's carries spiced cider as a seasonal drink, and the last time my mother went there they didn't have any, which is terrible because now I can't drink caramel apple cider. Another great thing about the change of season is redecorating. today I was very productive and put up fall lights in my room and cleaned my room, because I don't follow the trend "spring cleaning", it's more like "whenever I feel like it cleaning". I also decided to paint my nails because they looked terrible, I opted for fallish shades. I also like that the leaves are all pretty during the fall time. one thing that a lot of people like about fall is that Starbucks has pumpkin spice drinks. I plan to try this hopefully this season, but because at the beginning of summer I told myself that I was going to try the cotton candy frap and never got around to it, I don't know how much I should trust myself with this one. Anyways I hope you are all having a wonderful fall so far and I hope you have a wonderful day! Bye!
