Recently, my boyfriend and I took a trip to Demarest Farms in Hillsdale, New Jersey. We went last year around this time and ultimately decided we’d make it into an annual fall tradition. Because who wouldn’t want to pick pumpkins at a local farm market with fresh vegetables, a petting zoo and the yummiest apple cider doughnuts EVER – especially the ones covered in cinnamon sugar, ah. I made the very poor decision of only buying four doughnuts last year, but it’s safe to say I was definitely better prepared this time around. I took home a dozen in my ASOS Leather Embossed Backpack because you gotta’ stock up when you can only enjoy something that good only once a year. Ya feel me? 😉
We got lucky with the weather as it was the definition of a perfect autumn day. The sun was shining bright and the air crisp and cool, but not too chilly. I’ve been a bit spendy on ASOS lately, so I paired my favorite good ole Topshop Ripped Jamie Jeans with my new ASOS J.D.Y Peplum Shirt and ASOS Warehouse Leather Look Biker Jacket. I’ve always been more of a comfort gal than anything else and well, I was feeling just that in this outfit. We peered around the crowded market and my mouth watered at the sight of crisp gala apples, homemade jams and fresh local produce.
Outside, I took the opportunity to people watch as there was loads to see! I’m sure you can imagine how many families with young children were there enjoying some quality time together. We went over to the petting zoo and watched a little boy feed the cutest little goat, who seemed to never be satisfied with the amount of food it was being fed. More please. I’m looking forward to carving the pumpkin I picked up as I have to redeem myself from last year. Let’s just say my cat pumpkin didn’t come out as I had planned…
Next weekend, I’m heading to Bates Motel in Pennsylvania with my family and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I’ve always wanted to go to a proper haunted house and hayride and Bates Motel is ranked as one of the best haunted attractions in the country. As a lover of all things horror (I’m always down to watch a scary movie), I’ve been looking forward to this trip for SO long. I’ll definitely have to report back, so stay tuned! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!
