Autumn is one of my most favorite times of the year. I enjoy the crisp air. The seasonal scents. Everything orange and the anticipation of the meaningful winter holidays. As summer turns to fall, more than just the weather and my wardrobe changes. My habits change as well and that includes excitement over discovering new things.
Which is why I was so super excited to receive the #AcornFallBox.
The Acorn Fall Box was filled with all sorts of cool fall finds, gift ideas, seasonal items and stuff just for me. Because, well, I deserve some cool stuff every once in awhile.
The first item I noticed from the Fall Acorn Box was a customized May Designs notebook with my name on it. I LOVE it! Finally a notebook that my daughter can’t steal from me. I swear she is obsessed with notebooks. She did, however, ask for her very own May Designs notebook. I just might have to get her one!
I love the design of the notebook and it’s the perfect size for me to use to track blog post ideas and to-do lists. May Designs has agendas, notebooks, photo books, stationary and more. Their designs are pretty and simple and have a hand-sewn binding. The pages are customizable as are the covers.

The next thing I noticed in the #AcornFallBox was a package of Goody hair elastics. My hair is way too long lately and windy fall weather has made it completely uncontrollable. Well it WAS completely uncontrollable. My new Goody hair elastics help me keep it under control and out of my face. They are great for fall bike rides, visits to the pumpkin patch and afternoons walks.
These hair elastics really are ouchless and they hold my hair up perfectly. And frankly a ponytail makes me look younger and at 43 I need all of the help I can get.
There is one thing in the Acorn Fall Box that I am willing to share with others. Most of the items I am stingily keeping for myself, but the Switch Witch is something I am sharing with my kids. Switch Witch is every parent’s Halloween dream come true.
And exactly what is a Switch Witch?
A Switch Witch is a brand new Halloween tradition!
I love Halloween and trick-or-treating, as do my kids (hello, candy) but every year, despite the mass quantities they collect, we don’t let them keep a lot of it. Because…hello, candy. So we let them choose a select amount of their favorite candy and we take the rest away and donate it. Despite lots of complaining. And begging. Switch Witch basically makes this process more fun for kids and less stressful for adults.
On Halloween night, after all of the candy has been collected, the Switch Witch uses her Switchcraft magic to whisk the candy away and leave something special in its place – but only if they behave. I love that I will no longer be to blame for taking their candy away. Simply brilliant.
Switch Witches are available in Target stores nationwide!
No fall season would be complete without a candle, and so I was super excited to find a Glade Candle in my #AcornFallBox.
Since the loss of our beloved Simon, I like to keep a candle or a plant near his picture. There is something about a glowing flame or a living plant that just signifies the light and the life he brought to our lives. This Glade candle is perfect for fall too, it smells crisp and fresh like the fall air.
Last but definitely not least, the Acorn Fall Box contained a bag of Onyx Coffee Lab coffee beans. Coffee is my magic morning fuel. I love it. For me, coffee can make or break the rest of my day. Both whether I have it and how good it is. And the Onyx Coffee Lab coffee definitely made my day.
This coffee smelled amazing. I could smell the raspberry, white grape and chocolate malt as it brewed and the taste was creamy and modern with just the right amount of subtle undertones to the flavor. The beans were amazing and not greasy, and Onyx used organic and ethical trading practices for their coffee for the highest quality beans. They also roast in small batches and that flavor shines through.
I had so much experiencing all of these new-to-me products in the #AcornFallBox, and I am having even more fun shopping for gifts for upcoming holidays from my new favorite brands.
