The Ladyfolk Fall Bucket List

InspirationKimberly HeimbachComment
Fall Bucket List.JPG

Changing seasons bring on the inspiration for me. As you can tell from all my recent fall content. It inspires me to try something new, embrace a seasonal color palette, revel in the weather, let go of the old and make room for the new. Here at Ladyfolk Studio we are all about incorporating beauty and creativity into everyday and a seasonal bucket list is one way to do just that.

You can make your own list of what will inspire you and what you would like to accomplish this fall season or pick and choose a few from my fall bucket list below.

  1. Visit a pumpkin patch.

  2. Have a bonfire and roast smores.

  3. Run through a corn maze.

  4. Carve the perfect pumpkin.

  5. Make a fall wreath.

  6. Bake cookies.

  7. Go for a long hike.

  8. Visit an Oktoberfest with friends.

  9. Go apple picking.

  10. Visit a haunted house.

  11. Knit a fall scarf.

  12. Host a movie night to watch the Shining.

  13. Bake pumpkin muffins.

  14. Get a pumpkin spice latte and visit the library.

  15. Make mulled wine.

Ladyfolk-Studio-10 things we love about fall-2.JPG

Here at Ladyfolk Studio, the fall is a very special season.

It all starts with the shift to cooler weather in October. Followed by my dating anniversary with my husband October 11th, then my birthday October 20th and then Halloween! I mean what is not to LOVE about all that! A few other things I love about Fall…

  1. Candy corn and Pumpkin flavored everything!

  2. Lighting candles all over the house.

  3. Decorated front door stoops.

  4. Red lipstick and dark nail polish.

  5. Halloween movies every night in October.

  6. Rainy days and hygge.

  7. Pumpkin Patch visits to take fall photos and pick the perfect pumpkin.

  8. Cozy Sweaters and beanies.

  9. Hot chocolate or apple cider.

  10. Soups and crockpot dinners.

Combine a few of the things we love about fall for the perfect fall day or night. For example, drink (9) hot apple cider in a (8) cozy sweater while watching (5) Halloween movies. Another two, (3) decorate your front door stoop while eating (4) candy corn or visit a (7) pumpkin patch and come home to (10) seasonal soup for dinner.

Be Inspired with Eberjey Recap

Ladyfolk Studio Watercolor and Wine workshop with Eberjey

I love sharing my inspiration and creativity!

So I was very excited when Eberjey asked me to host a Watercolor and Wine workshop for there “Be Inspired” series in Newport Beach. If you haven’t yet visited Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, where Eberjey is, then you are missing out! It is such a cute collection of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, all sitting along the beautiful Newport Beach Harbor. Some of my favorites there including Eberjey is the newly opened Malibu Farm, Zinque, the book store and Le Labo.

I love the inspiration behind Eberjey’s “Be Inspired” in-store events…

Eberjey is more than the soft cozies you never want to take off. We’re about embracing passions, exploring limitless creativity & sharing everyday moments with our customers & community. Whether you want to further an existing skill or learn something completely new, join us at one of our retail locations for a special event that promises to be enriching. From intimate shopping nights to workshops, panel discussions & more, we invite you to come BE INSPIRED & enjoy our retail experience!

Ladyfolk Studio Watercolor and Wine workshop with Eberjey Newport Beach

During the evening of my “Be Inspired” workshop we talked about letting go and using intuition to guide us to create something uniquely beautiful with watercolor. I always remind my workshop guests, art is not about creating the exact same thing as someone else. Watercolor painting does really require a sense of surrendering and improvising when things don’t go as planned, especially for beginners. All the ladies really displayed individuality in color preferences and brush techniques that we went over and I think all the watercolor paintings came out so pretty!

Rosé wine was definitely the variety of choice for the end-of-summer night but white and red were also available for tasting along with a perfect selection of snacks. All of this supported the relaxed and inspiring vibe for the evening.

It was a lovely group of women who spent the evening with me at Eberjey relaxing and getting inspired painting palm leafs, sipping wine and shopping in the beautiful store. If you aren’t familiar with the brand Eberjey, let me tell you they are known for there super soft must-have pajamas. They also have a variety of swimwear, loungewear, and the cutest little girl collection.
