Fall Checklist: Seasonal Success

Summer typically gets all the glory, but what about the beautiful Autumn season upon us? Sure, the weather starts to cool down, but the colors shine bright, and new opportunities unfold: Football season kicks off, wedding season slows, and those gorgeous, warm seasonal veggies ripen. Set yourself up for success this season by taking advantage of new activities and maintaining your adventurous summer attitude.

Girl, Stay Outside

In most places, the temperatures will drop to a comfortable degree giving you the perfect opportunity to get outside without sweating out your entire body weight! Go for a hike, take a long bike ride, learn to skateboard – it’s not time to bundle up yet so throw on a sweater and enjoy the sunshine. The same mentality goes for restaurants – patio season may just be at it’s best paired with a Fall lager or pumpkin beer.

Bikini Body Workouts

Just because you’re wearing more clothes doesn’t mean you can slack on your workout routine; above all, living a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t be a seasonal focus. Don’t miss out on your last couple outdoor runs while you can, because that dreadmill is creeping around the corner! With every season comes changes and transitions – good and challenging – making it that much more beneficial to stack yourself with extra endorphins. You may have to drag yourself to barre class, or even to simply take a walk during your lunch break, but you’ll never walk away feeling worse. Continue taking care of yourself, and you’ll be happier for it.

Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins

We’re not hooked on the Pumpkin Spiced everything trend, but we can appreciate seasonal fruits and veggies! Pumpkins, squashes, apples, beets, potatoes – all slightly sweet, subtle, warm flavors that are perfect for soups, roasted and toasted techniques, and savory baked dishes. Embody the farm to table trend by visiting your local farms (or farmer’s markets) and pick your own produce; check out the FoodGawker app to test out a Fall recipe. Grab some friends and make a day out of it!

Tailgate Season

GO {insert favorite football team here}! We’re a little biased over the Pats in our office, but we run the gamut when it comes to College teams; whether rooting for your alma matter, or tagging along with a friend, college tailgates bring the activity to a whole new level. Wrap up your scarf, pack up your grill, and bring your beverage of choice; tailgates are the perfect opportunity to get outside, meet new people, and relive your college days. Oh and of course to watch football too… Check out our line of collegiate products to be your handy sidekick throughout the day.

Weekend Getaways

Summer weekends fill up faster than you can say Pumpkin Spiced Latte, but as wedding season winds down, and friends come back together, it feels good to have some time at home. The thought of another weekend trip may still be appealing, but the hole in your pockets are burning hot. Keeping the “summer adventure” mentality alive, allow yourself to schedule one or two trips throughout the season to satisfy your wanderlust tendencies. This is the perfect time to go camping and enjoy the changing leaves – for you and your bank account! If you’re looking to wind down in a more pampered setting, organize a spa trip for you and the girls – or better yet, make a mother/daughter excursion out of it!

Challenge yourself to try at least one Autumn inspired activity per week; every season has something special to offer and it’s up to you to grab it!
