Mimi Takes Five - #66


ONE // Back to School
Ah, September 1st! Don't you get that instant back-to-school sense of renewal? I can't help it, even if I'm not actually going back to school. It's just a really great feeling I get this time of year, when the cool breeze sets in and the leaves start changing. Besides, there are so many great things to look forward to in the fall (leaves, Thanksgiving, Halloween and ultimately Christmas!) How can one not get excited about those prospects? I'm also a big tea drinker and love wrapping myself up in a plaid scarf, so the cocooning brought on by the season is right up my alley! The above picture is a sneak peek of tomorrow's look post! It's all things fall and back-to-school!



TWO // Pumpkin Spice Latte
Earlier this week, Starbucks launched the beginning of their PSL season! Although I find that it could have waited a few more days, I'm totally ready for the spicy drink! That is why I made myself my first pumpkin spice latte of the season! I got the flavoured syrup a year or so ago and really enjoy making my homemade version for easy weekend mornings at home. 



THREE // Perfect Red Polish
My Ipsy bag totally delivered this past month. I got this gorgeous pinkish red nail polish and I simply cannot get over how much I love this shade! Ever since I put it on, I've been staring at my own nails multiple times a day in aww of this colour. I can't remember the last time I loved a polish shade so much. Maybe it looks so good because it matches my skin tone. Either way, I will be wearing this one on repeat all through fall. It's just that good! Reference: Gaia from Cuccio Colour.



FOUR //Fall Straw Bag
I totally found a way to sneak in some straw for fall! I actually got this bag in the spring during the Aldo sale, but was waiting for the end of summer/beginning of fall to bust it out. I find the combination of the straw and cognac shade to be the perfect match for the ultimate change-of-season transition bag! I mean, could it be any more perfect? Now, I don't have to cut the straw accessorizing cold turkey and can gradually come to terms with the fact straw season is over. Yes, I have a problem...



Five // Lady and the Tramp
The closer we get to November (and the more teasing we get), I'm really considering signing up to Disney's new streaming channel, Disney+... Last week, it was learning of the Lizzie McGuire reboot and now I've stumbled upon the trailer for the live-action Lady and the Tramp! This is just the most recent in the extensively long list of Disney remakes and I am just as excited as I've been for every other one that came before it. As much as I love the Disney princess movies, I'm also a sucker for animal lead-roles too. I mean, the spaghetti date scene of this movie is legendary and I can't wait to see it in all of its saucy greatness this time around!
