Happy Monday!!! And welcome to Monday Must Haves! A new weekly segment where I will share some things that I recently bought and am loving or things that are currently in my Amazon shopping cart.

It’s been in the 90s and muggy here but my finds are all fall inspired!

Monday Must Haves

This nail polish – I love this color for fall! The shade is called “That’s what friends are for.” Have I mentioned before that I think it would cool to have a job where you just come up with names for nail polish colors?

Vest – This is such a great layering piece for fall or winter. A hooded vest lined with fleece and it’s reversible too! Available in several colors.

Candle warmer – Not only is the really pretty, but you don’t have to worry about an open flame.  Creates a cozy ambiance on your counters, in your bedroom, on your desk, wherever.

These soup crocks – Bring on Souptember or Souptober, whatever you want to call it! These crocks are perfect for chilli, soups, mac and cheese and cozy comfort food. Sharing some of my favorite soups – Crock pot butternut squash,or my chicken noodle soup.
