I ask myself one question every autumn and that is “Is it really autumn yet if I haven’t gone apple picking?” I am not one of these people who gets hype over pumpkin spice lattes or the cooler weather, but give me an apple orchid and that all changes.
Every year, I head upstate to Maskers Orchids and pick a huge bag of apples! Since I love to cook, I pick up enough to make apple pie, pork with apples, and apple jam. This season, the roads were a little muddy but the apples were plentiful. I threw on my Faux Suede Rebel Wilson Trench jacket and got to picking!
This cozy orchid is filled with rows of different apple trees. You are allowed to eat all you want while you pick. I come with my appetite every season and of course a bottle of water for rinsing the apples. If you’ve never had an apple, fresh from the tree, sans the wax, you are certainly missing out. The juicy, sweet, flavorful selection is a reason New York is known as the big apple and why the apple is the fruit of New York!
I wore my new Soncy’s That’s All Faux Suede Skirt and Why You Gotta Be So Cold Shoulder Stripped Shirt! I loved this combo. It was casual, flirty, comfortable, and just a little sexy. Use my Soncy Promo Code StardustxSoncy to save 15$ on any purchase.
If you live in the city, you know how important it is to get away every now and then. This little yearly escape from the noise, and pollution, and bustle of the city is just what I need to refresh my soul every season.
The sound of silence, he wind through the grass, the fresh air and the panoramic views of the Catskills mountains, always capture me in a way that nothing else can. I have driven all over the country, have seen have the entire United States, but there is still something special about being rich here.
I normally am not very festive but for this trip, I decided to have apple themed nails done at GlossLab using Emilie Heathe, warm tan skin thanks to Coola, and a fresh green shadow and bright red lips from Profusion.
Lastly, I treated myself to an apple cider donut and let my diet go to the side for a week. If you’ve never had an apple cider donut, it is a must! It has a subtle apple sweet flavor and is covered in a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon.
What are some of your autumn traditions? Do you apple pick, pumpkin pick, or stay at home with some warm apple cider? Do you grab a pumpkin spice latte? Or are you just waiting for the holiday season! I’d love to know what your favorite places to visit this fall season!
