Fall Haul 2020

Hey Guys!

Fall has always been my favorite season, i love everything about it… the cooler weather, rainy days, colorful leaves, pumpkin carving, apple picking, and so much more! One of my favorite things though, is decorating my house for Fall. Making my house feel all warm and cozy for Fall is just the best feeling.

Anyways, i could go on and on about my love for Fall, so instead let’s just jump into today’s post. Today i’m sharing something super fun, a Fall haul!!

I like to add just a few touches to my house for Fall, as i am a firm believer in less is more. So you aren’t going to see anything too crazy below.

Pillow Covers – I bought these on Amazon and i love them! They are the perfect addition to our living room! Amazon had a great selection of Fall themed pillow covers, it was really hard to just pick 1 set!

Fall Banner – A really cute addition to our fireplace!

Tea light Candle Holder – I got these at Hobby Lobby and i think they are super cute. They were on sale (40% off) when i bought them!

In the daytime
In the night time

Autumn Fragrance Oils – They smell so good. Makes the whole house smells like Fall.

Fall Candles – Ulta makes some really great candles, they smell amazing! I bought these when they were on sale (under $10) and i used some ulta rewards points i had, so i basically got these for free!

Fall Coffee Cups – Hobby Lobby had an amazing selection of coffee mugs, i seriously wanted all of them. It was hard to just walk away with 3 😉

Fall Doormat – How cute is this doormat?! Such an easy, festive addition to the exterior of our house!

That’s my Fall Haul for 2020, i hope you enjoyed it!
