love lately.

It's been such a busy, busy week and it's only Wednesday!! I hate when that happens. Can we just fast forward to the weekend please? But until then I'll just share some of the things I'm loving lately, in my new love lately posts where I'll be sharing some of my favorite things. Take a look!
1. Pumpkins. And my mantle. I haven't had much time for anything, let alone decorating, so my mantle has been pretty bare. LAME. I picked up some cute mini pumpkins and lined them up for a simple minimalist look. I love how the results came out!
these would also look nice on a mantle // or these for a different look
2. Fall candles and scents. I may have a slight obsession with these yummy scented candles from Bath and Body Works, so much so that I came home with a large bag of treats the other day! D probably wishes I would spend less money on candles but hey, they make the whole place so warm and cozy. I know deep down he really appreciates it! These are some of my favorites along with Pumpkin Hayride and Pumpkin Apple. Sooooo good! My store actually just sold out of Pumpkin Apple but I found a similar candle here which is just as yummy!
3. My obsession of fall-ness comes to work with me. Did you really think my office wouldn't get a fall makeover too? Yup, I got sweet cinnamon pumpkin hand sanitizer for my desk (which is crucial working in a school with kids), a lipgloss in the same flavor, and a pumpkin pecan waffle plug-in. Everyone loves visiting my office because the smells are so delightful! Who wouldn't like a waffle scented office? So very festive : )
4. This guy. I just love him all the time. Not just lately : )
 5. Seasonal K-cups. These are in constant rotation right now because, Tis the season! I actually just bought some nice pumpkin liquor too and I'm looking forward to experimenting with a pumpkin version of irish coffee! Also thinking the hot apple cider might be pretty tasty with some caramel flavored vodka!
 6. French hens. Well this french hen print to be exact.  I was obsessed with this print ever since I saw this adorable sweater (in it's cashmere version) from J.Crew last year. It was too expensive for my last year, but when the same print hit J.Crew Factory I was all over it! When I like something, I like it a lot!
The blouse, scarf and iphone case are already sold out but they still have these tops if you're loving this print like I am:
7. Respect and an arm party. As a school counselor, we recognize this week as the week of respect in which we help students understand the importance of respect. We got these snazzy blue rubber bracelets which I've been rocking all week, and I think it's a pretty sweet addition to my arm party!

Well that's all for now -- What are you loving lately??

Happy Hump dayyyyyyyy everyone!

    Love your cute pumpkins on the mantle! I love everything happy it's finally here!!!

  5. I love all of these ideas!! Which of the Bath and Body Works candles is your favourite? I'm thinking of running out to the closest store to pick one up and would love a recommendation! Thanks!! :)

    the pumpkin pecan waffle is prob my favorite scent from this fall collection -- it's so yummy and makes me hungry!

  7. pretty little thingsOctober 9, 2013 at 4:49 PM

    thanks for the comments Jessica! and these candles are awesome, if they weren't so pricey I'd get one in every scent!!

    mmmm sounds delicious! thanks for the comments Sharon!

  9. pretty little thingsOctober 9, 2013 at 4:51 PM

    thanks Steph! I like them because they are a cheap and simple way to decorate!

  10. pretty little thingsOctober 9, 2013 at 4:51 PM

    thanks Jenni! I agree -- fall is officially here and it's the best : )

  11. pretty little thingsOctober 9, 2013 at 4:59 PM

    thanks for the comments Joanna! I think it depends what kind of fragrances you gravitate to, but my favorites were pumpkin pecan apple (it has the cupcake/vanilla hint to it) pumpkin apple (awesome scent but sold out in a lot of places), leaves, and applewood bonfire are my favorite. But almost all the scents from Bath and Body Works are awesome right now so you can't go wrong. Hope that helps! : )

    Thanks for the sweet comments Skylette! : )

  13. Omg cider donuts what?? I didn't see that one. I got pumpkin cheesecake and apple ale. Both amazing. I also love pumpkin coffee which they sadly don't sell in stores in Canada like anywhere. I live closed to the Washington state border so I'm going to go stock up next week!

  14. pretty little thingsOctober 9, 2013 at 6:29 PM

    the cider donut one is amazing! then again I do have a slight obsession with apple cider donuts, so I thought the whole idea of the candle was fabulous! I like the apple ale one too! and you should see if you can order online and they can ship them to Canada! thanks for the comments Taren : )

  15. Definitely helps!! Thanks so much Steph! xo

  16. I didn't know you were a school counselor..are you at a school here in Hoboken? I did the same thing with the pumpkins on my front porch.

  17. pretty little thingsOctober 12, 2013 at 6:26 PM

    no i don't work in Hoboken -- I work at a school in Bergen county! : )

  18. All are amazing . Great thanks for shared .
