Fall Means Apples and Pumpkins and so much more

IMG_0454Fall is in the air and honestly we live in one of the most amazing places to enjoy this season.  As I drive around the area for work I truly enjoy seeing the fall foliage and pumpkin patches as they prepare for the season.

There are so many amazing activities too.  From hitting up the ever popular Roloff Farms in Helvetia to enjoying one more last warm day at Sauvie Island there is something for every one to enjoy.

The Red Tricycle has a list of 32 amazingly fun things that you can do during this time of year.  And if you live in the Hillsboro area be sure to check out their fall activities guide to learn about some fun activities that the Hillsboro Parks and Rec Department has going on.

I hope that you find something fun to go out and enjoy.

Lavender oh how I love you.

soap-2726387_1920Lavender is one of my favorite scents, especially in the evening because it helps me to relax.  Therefore I love any and all bath products that have lavender in them.  I recently purchased a package of Night Time Bath Salts from Homemade Wellness by Jamie in North Plains, Oregon and they were a perfect way to relax after a stressful day.  The smell was amazing as she uses Dead Sea salt, Epsom salt, baking soda, lavender & cedarwood essential oils & dried lavender.

If soaking in a hot tub is not your thing she also has some other amazing products.  I also purchased The Valerie – An Orange Spice Goats Milk Soap as well.  It’s made from olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, goat’s milk, dark red brazilian clay, orange, cinnamon & star anise essential oils. Topped with star anise, dried marigold & dried safflower petals.  Friends, I am not a fan of licorice or the smell of it so I was a little concerned about the star anise, I LOVE IT!!!!!!  It honestly is the perfect smell for fall.
