Hi there Savvy readers! I'm Madeline from Drunk on Discounts and I'm thrilled to be today's guest blogger. I jumped at the opportunity to share my five favorite things about Fall.
1. Fall TV
1. Fall TV
My boyfriend and I have a packed schedule when it comes to Fall TV shows so we turn into even bigger homebodies than we already were once the leaves change. Add a bowl of popcorn and have yourself a "free" date night from the comfort of your couch!
2. Think Pink!
My mom is a breast cancer survivor so I'm more of a year-round advocate, but October is the official month of awareness. I love how brands use pink this month, especially the NFL. Seeing men in pink shoes and gloves makes me so happy and, even better, game-worn merch will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society.
3. Jewel Tone Nail Polish
Jewel tones are flattering on every skin tone which is good because I love all of these shades from the Zoya 2012 Fall Collection. I'm currently rocking a plum color but I think emerald green is next on my list. Nail polish is a fairly inexpensive way to add some pizzazz to your outfits.
4. Holiday Shopping
Unlike my mom, who buys holiday gifts all year long, I wait until at least September or October to get my shop on. I'm finally at the age where I'm just as excited to search for and find a unique gift for my friends and family as I am to rip open my own! I actually do most of my shopping online to avoid the craziness of the mall (and to hunt for the best deal) but sometimes I do look like the girl above. Except for the heels. Why would you ever shop in heels?
5. Fall Fashion
Like most of you, I love everything about Fall wardrobes, especially being able to transition my Summer dresses into another season. By simply adding a cardigan, socks, and boots, I'm able to get an even bigger return on investment!
Yes I love all of the new seasons of my favorite shows! What a fun way to raise money for research, and who doesn't love some football?
Thanks for sharing Madeline!
