I am sharing with you, a few of my favorite things to do in the Fall. I can hardly believe that summer is already over. Who agrees with me that, summer deserves a speeding ticket? It is no secret that I LOVE the Fall. Something about the cooler, brisk temperatures and the smell of pumpkin spice everywhere. Growing up on the eastern end of Long Island, the fall season certainly was a big deal in our household. I am sharing with you a few of my favorite spots on the north fork.
I absolutely love visiting Harbes Farms in Mattituck. From apple picking, to activities for children, hay rides, spooky mazes and much more. Harbes is the perfect place to visit for everything Fall related. If you do visit, be sure to taste the Apple Cider donuts; (those are Tyler’s fave.) Yesterday, we picked honey crisp apples and they were so delicious.
I recommend apple picking early in the season. Last year we waited until the end of September and there were hardly any apples left.
I also love to hit a few different farms on my way out east. This farm specifically has gorgeous fall floral arrangements and fresh berries. I also love their little ice cream stand near the fields. If you are passing by Harbes, definitely stop at Patty’s Berries & Bunches.
Okay, I am also a huge fan of the wineries on the eastern end of Long Island. The tasting garden at Croteaux Vineyards is Rosé all day! Darlings, I am serious here, they actually serve Rosé from noon-6 pm every day. They have several different types of Rosé to try through out their vineyard. This is definitely my favorite vineyard on the Northfork.
So, many of you know from my Insta-Stories that I surprised Tyler with a surprise birthday staycation weekend in Soho. I wanted to first off thank everyone for all of the birthday wishes! Tyler sends his love to you all. We stayed for the weekend at, the Soho Grand Hotel. Tyler is very into the trendy and rustic locations, so I knew he would adore it. It exceeded our expectations, more than we ever could have imagined. You know the staycation was successful when you both were tearing up on the last day. Clearly we didn’t want it to end. From the kind and helpful guest service staff to the waitstaff at the restaurant; we were delighted everywhere we went. As soon as we arrived, we were your typical NYC tourists. We wanted the entire New York experience, granted we’ve visited a dozen times.
Continue reading below to see how we celebrated Tyler’s Bday weekend. I could go on for days discussing every little thing we did. We will remember this staycation forever and hold the memories dear to our hearts. Also at the very bottom, you will see the pictures from our rustic shoot. We had a blast and now have beautiful photos to look back on.
Saturday was the sweetest day ever! As soon as I walked into the pop-up shop I was greeted with such poise and delight. I also was immediately drawn to the enormous tub filled with Venus Et Fleur roses. It was quite beautiful. The elegance and smell of lavender filled the store. I definitely, had the best time at the Sugarfina and Venus ft. Fleur Event! Between the rosé gummies and the round Petit roses, I fell in love. I had the chance to test delicious candies and smell the fresh roses decorated through out the store. I sipped on rosé while trying various flavors of gummies- from peach to strawberry. It truly was a rosé all day affair!
If you haven’t visited Sugarfina in Southampton, NY then you are clearly missing out on the most darling-esque pop-up shops of the summer! I instantly fell in love with their decor and rosé vibes. I truly could have shopped and taste-tested these delicious candies all day long. I hope you all were able to visit my Insta-stories to tune into the fun! I am excited to attend a few more events in August and you don’t want to miss out on the live action. I’d love to hear from you ladies and was wondering what content you’d enjoy to see more of on the blog. Leave a comment below.
