    Candy/Snacks- Anything chocolate! I also love cheese, crackers, goldfish, and coffee.

    Colors- Pink and purple are always a win with me. But I would love to have some fall colors like yellow/mustard, orange, brown, etc.

    Accessories- Hats and scarfs for fall! I'm also a big fan of hoops and long earrings.

    Home Decor- I'm moving to a new apartment, so any cute fall decorations would be so much fun! Things that look more modern though vs. country.

    Fun Faves- Starbucks, iTunes, and Barnes and Noble Gift Cards are always welcome, I've really been into Owls lately, I LOVE nerdy things like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, vampires (recently fell in love with Vampire Diaries), Lord of the Rings, Firefly, etc.

    Girly Things- Neutral or fall color nail polishes! I also have really been loving head bands and little clips for my hair.
