Fall is upon us you guys… well, not quite yet. In Southern California, we’re still having 100 degree days so it doesn’t necessarily feel like fall. Considering it’s my favorite season, I decided that I’m going to go ahead and get into the spirit anyway.

What do you do to get into the season? Is it watching certain movies? Getting a pumpkin spice latte. Mine is a mix of all of that but mostly, I like my apartment to really feel like fall. The first thing I do is light a candle of my favorite fall scents, Cider House Ghouls from Simon and Duffy Candles. It smells like mulled cider and magic! If you’re local to LA, you’ve probably seen them at a crafts fair and found all of their wonderful fandom scents intriguing. If you’re not, you’ll probably fall in love with the pure magic that happens when you light them.

So yeah, I light a wonderfully scented candle, turn on Practical Magic and start some Fall DIY decorating! I feel like once my house is decorated there’s at least one place in this super hot weather that feels like fall.

1. Start with a wreath. If you’re a book nerd like me, this Fall DIY Paper Leaf Wreath from Nalie’s House makes your heart both happy and sad. Happy because it looks amazing and sad because you probably destroyed a book while doing so. Best case scenario? Grab a trashy romance novel from the thrift store.

13. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t include one insanely fandom piece. Check out this amazing Hobbiton Terrarium! I don’t know why, but I always watch The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings in the fall so this is a fun way to bring that in.
