fall favorites & terminix reader discount


oh man, has august been humid or what? if it's not raining, then there's an 80 percent chance and an oppressive amount of moisture in the air. i don't know about you, but i'm ready for fall, so today i'm teaming up with terminix to talk about some of the things i'm most looking forward to about autumn. and if you followed me throughout my mosquito free summer and feel inspired to enjoy your home and yard more in the coming months, terminix is giving readers $25 off their initial service for any new pest control or mosquito management annual contract. you can get my reader discount here, but please note that this offer is only valid for the next month (through september 30, 2015) so don't wait too long to sign up! and check out my fall favorites below:

september issues
whether you're into fashion or food, september always ushers in a season of change. out come the coats and jeans, followed by pumpkin spice lattes, pies and soups. i was really excited to get my hands on a copy of lucky peach's fall issue when we were in nashville (more details on our trip to come). dubbed the fantasy issue, it features some of the country's next best restaurants, surreal meals, and even harry potter's favorite flavors. i can't wait to read this on saturday mornings with some tea on the front porch.

chai tea
and speaking of tea, september ushers in chai tea season for me. sure, you can have an iced chai, but something about hot chai is so comforting. this trader joe's mix really helps you keep a few dollars in your pocket instead of always going to starbucks, and i like to use almond milk to keep it a little lighter. plus, it's super quick and easy to make.

knitting
i love to knit. it's another one of my old-lady habits (along with always being cold and a penchant for gin and tonics) that i just can't deny. this mustard color yarn is perfect for fall, and the giant needles help make the work go much faster (i picked these up from craft south).  it's so nice to sit outside, have a beer and do something with your hands after staring at a computer screen all day at work. it really helps you unwind.

photo hunts
of course when the leaves change, that becomes prime instagram season. justin got me this retro instax mini a while back, and it's so gratifying to actually have physical pictures again! sure, it takes a little while to remember how to use manual settings, but understanding them has actually helped my iphone photography a lot too. i'd suggest buying a few practice rolls of film and honing your skills around your yard as the trees and light start to change.

what are your fall favorites? i'd love to hear. and don't forget to use my reader discount if you're thinking about signing up for a mosquito treatment with terminix this fall. you can also read more about my mosquito free summer here.

*fine print: service must be in TSI service area. not valid on existing service or with any other offer.
