Sunday Afternoon Coffee Talk: Top 5 Fall Wants

Happy October! While I love summer, I fleeking love fall! Why? Well, I look sooo much better in warm weather clothing, plus I love the fall weather, the colors, and the snuggly warm drinks and movies.

But with all that, comes fall themed subscription boxes! What are you most looking forward to getting in a box this season?


Top 5 Fall Wants 

Blanket Scarves: some brilliant women found out a way to roll out of bed WITH your blanket and pretend it’s a scarf. My life is complete.

Literally Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING: my roomies [Big Lebowski fans] love White Russians. So, a couple years ago I pimped our White Russians and made them White Basic B*tch Russians with pumpkin spice liqueur. You’re welcome.

    OMG I want that coziest blanket ever!!! I think I could rock it with a pissed off look. Now if I had a grumpy sidekick cat the painted portait of my dreams could become reality!

      Pnut, that’s an arm knit blanket! I arm knit some scarves, but dang that thing is YUUUUGE! If you click the picture it will show you the outrageous ball of yarn it came from.

    Boots and hats! I have a huge collection of scarves, but I never wear them. My daughters love to come “borrow” them though. I have a small *ahem* blankie problem. I have them everywhere, yet keep acquiring more.

      Susie I have a blanket army! I think it goes back to my childhood where I didn’t know what a comforter was, I just had 10-15 thin blankets on my bed when my dad would turn the heat off at night, and I was still freezing… now I just want to be WARM!

    I’m tempted to get a blanket scarf – I have a few scarves but rarely wear them. I too love blankets & boots! And coats, jackets & sweaters – though I hate the cold. Not sure about getting most of these things in sub boxes though because I like to / need to try things on.

    Candles! Right, Pnut? Even though I usually forget to light them…

      Heat, I also love coats, jackets, boots, blankets, and scarves. BUT I dislike the cold!! Haha.

    I love scarves, but hate blanket scarves. I’m short and thin, so blanket scarves just make me look like I’m being eaten by a bolt of fabric.

    Things I’d like to see in fall sub-boxes:

    1 – Cool fingerless gloves with actual finger holes, not just arm warmers with a thumb hole and a bigger hole for the rest of the hand.

    2 – Lip scrub and lip balm duos. I embrace red and burgundy lips in the fall, so lips need to be smooth and perfect.

    3 – Chocolate anything. Now that the weather is cooler, subs can start shipping chocolate again! Wooohooooooooo!

    4 – Chokers. I’m legit excited this is trend is back.

    I just have to say that I love the kitty fur kitty. and that knit blanket looks so comfy but I have been forbidden to purchase any more blankets.

    • October 5, 2016 at 2:44 pm

      Marna, that’s the nice loophole with subscription boxes! You didn’t specifically BUY a blanket, it came in a box!

    I love the pumpkin spice white Russian idea. Bowling alleys should really be taking advantage of this idea.
    And anyone else just overwhelmed at the number of pumpkin spiced items at Trader Joe’s? Pumpkin butter, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin cornbread mix, pumpkin spice mochi tea…..
    Though, oddly, there were no pumpkin pies . . .

      Trader Joes has been going gaga lately with seasonal ingredients of the moment. I was not a fan of the pumpkin butter (was sad that was very unfortunate). But no pumpkin pies!?!

    • October 8, 2016 at 3:13 pm

      Heh, sdbear I really hope there is a bowling alley out there with Pumpkin Spice White Russians and a dude who sits there all afternoon drinking them =)

      TJ’s went nuts over mangoes during the summer, so I am not surprised about their trying to keep up with the pumpkin fad! I think I’ll make some banana bread, and then find a recipe for pumpkin bread, but Pnut I’ll stay away from the pumpkin butter.

        Nonono please try the pumpkin butter then return it if you don’t like it. Everyone but me loves TJ pumpkin butter!

        I did try the TJ beer bread agin this year and they changed it for the better. Reminded me of the Tastefully Simple beer bread my cousin made but wihout the $10 pricetag.

        TJ took too far the specoulos(sp) cookie fad with the ice cream. Bleh. The speculous cookie butter was ok but they should have left it with just the simple awesome cookie.

        On a semi-digressive note, TJ has a black/white oreo cream black cookie swirl butter WHICH IS LIKE FOOD CRACK.
