Happy Fall Y’all !!! Fall is my favorite time of year, I just love the changing of the leaves and the weather becoming colder. Every fall I like to put together a fall bucket list so I can enjoy fall to the fullest. So this year I thought that I would share that list with you. Please feel free to use this list as inspiration for things to do thing Fall.
When it come to picking out perfume , I get very pick with my choose that I make. I am very sensitive when it come to perfume and i usually end up with a head if the sent is to over powering. So I the fact that I bough this sent with out even smelling is pretty daring for me. One night a few weeks back when I could not sleep I tuned on the TV with is the worst thing to do.
When I normally can’t sleep I usually put on the QVC channel to fall asleep to but unlucky for me that night they had Philosophy on. They presented this holiday collect that was for Christmas in July event that contained the Fresh Cream Soft Suede set. This immediately peaked my interest because I am such a big fan of Fresh Cream, the original . So of course, I order it with out really even thinking about it .
I was quite sure that I would have to return it because I would not like the scent at all. However, when I finally got it in the mail I was pleasantly surprised how much I actually enjoyed the fragrance. The first note that you get is a warm vanilla scent that then mellow out to a smoky bourbon, musk, leather cream and amber. It is defiantly a warm and cozy scent which would be prefect for the colder months .
I am super happy that I picked up this set from QVC and quite happy that I enjoy the scent as much as I do for never smelling it before I bought it. I can wait to wear Fresh Cream Soft Suede this fall and winter !!

Where is your favorite place to visit in the Unite State ?
I have been very lucky to have been introduced to traveling at such a young age when I went to go visit my sister in Japan. Even since then I have been compiling a list of places in the world that I want to visit before I die. Traveling is such an adventure and a life lesson all wrapped up in one. Not only do you get to meet new people, you get to lose yourself in a different world and learn something new about yourself. You don’t have to be rich to travel the world you just have to make it one of your priorities in life. I always joke with my mom that the only reason I work is so I can travel the world. My dream job would have to be to travel the world and discover new places. I have a feeling that this list will forever be changing.
Tomorrow I turn 26 years old and it really got me thinking about what I have done in my life so far and what I want to do with my life in the future. I put together a list of things that I want to achieve before I turn 30 years old.
I want to take these next five years to say yes to as many possibilities that I can. For the last 2 year, I have kinda shut myself off from the world and have been in this weird funk. So, therefore I really want to take this next five year to really put myself out there, I am really sick of letting life pass me by. Here is what I hope to achieve before my 30th birthday.

Do you have anything that you want to achieve before your next big birthday?
I have tried my hand at blogging before and my heart was never really into it then. I had a hard time trying to figuring out where I wanted to take my blog and how much effort I wanted to put in to it. So I took some time to think about where I wanted to take my blog or even if I wanted to continue blogging.So that is where The Topknot Baker comes in, it’s going to be a lifestyle blog and fresh start for me. This way I can write about all of the things that I am interned in like baking, traveling, makeup, sports, and fashion. Where as my other blog before I tried to just focus on makeup but I just myself not loving makeup that much to just write about it.
However, what really made me think about taking my blog seriously and actually putting time into my blog is a video that my mom showed me a few weeks back. It was a video of Steve Harvey taking to his studio audience about how you have to take the jump in life if you want to make your dreams happen. I will link the video here. It is a great video to watch and it makes me think that you really do have to take a leap in life if you want to make your dreams come true. I really don’t know where I want this blog to take me but I do want to see where this will take me. You never know what is going to happen in life if you don’t take the opportunity when it is in front of you.
I hope that you will find my blog entertaining and maybe help one of you out by bringing a little joy to your day.
