Getting Through Fall with 6 Fall Must-Haves

Fall is finally in full effect here in San Diego. The temp is dropping and with daylight savings, it’s dark oh so early. I’m definitely loving the cooler weather but not the early evenings. It makes me not want to do anything when I get home from work but these 6 fall must-haves are really helping me adjust and enjoy my fall nights. 



I love candles! Especially to light in the fall and winter! But there is nothing more frustrating than trying to light a candle with regular lighter. Burnt finger tips because the flame is coming up at an angle or you can’t even reach the wick because your candle has burnt down so much. A regular lighter just won’t do!

That’s why I love the Zippo Mini Flex Neck Candle Lighter! It makes it so easy to light hard-to-reach flames or awkward candle spaces. No more struggles with lighting your favorite candle. 🙂 


Speaking of candle lighting. The Chesapeake Bay Candle in Balance + Harmony is my new favorite from their Balance Collection. It has the perfect blend of fruity notes along with subtle outdoorsy scents which is perfect for fall. The Mind & Body Collection are soy blend wax candles that are enriched with natural essential oil that keep the fragrance lasting longer.

Fall evenings have given me the perfect chance to catch up on some reading. When I was in the Navy, I had a lot of time to read in between being on the flight deck and other tasks I had to do. I have always been drawn to romance novels so there is no surprise that I absolutely loved Links by Lisa Becker!

It’s a very easy read about two high school classmates who run into each other after 15 years. Charlotte was a super nerd in high school, which I can totally relate to, but transforms 15 years later. You will love her character and this love story! Grab it now!


I’m a big tea drinker especially in the evenings when I want something warm to sip while relaxing with a good read. Tea Forte Warming Joy Collection has a perfect mix of herbal and black teas to enjoy in the morning or at night. Spiced Ginger Plum is my current favorite in this set! 

Do you know a tea drinker? This would make a perfect holiday gift!

No one likes getting the cold but the peak of cold season is upon us. I just got over a gnarly cold a couple weeks ago that lasted for almost two weeks! That’s why a vitamin supplement is so important during these cold months ahead. Zoganic is such an easy way to boost immunity on top of other benefits like maintaining low blood pressure and heart rate, supporting healthy bowel health, and helping break down sugar, starches, proteins, and fats. 

It’s a natural way to keep your body healthy throughout the cold months. I keep my Zoganic pouches in my purse to add to water for an extra immunity boost.

Ok so say you do get that dreaded cold…it usually comes with being stuffed up! I couldn’t even breath through my nose a couple weeks ago and it was absolutely horrible. That’s why Stuffy Nose Strips are my final must have for fall! Keep them in your night stand to help improve breathing and get relieve from nasal congestion. 

PULLS open airways by over 61%! That is 31% more than traditional nasal strips. Know a loved one who just got a cold? Send them a care package with these in it! They will be thanking you.

I hope this list of my fall must-haves inspires you to take some time this fall to cuddle up with a good read, light some candles, and sip on a good cup of tea. Remember keep yourself healthy and nourish your body through these cold winter months.
