This Nonprofit Fosters Connections Between Runners and the Land We Run on
Vic Thasiah couldn’t find an organization of runners passionate about the land. So he created Runners for Public Lands. “Running roads down to the Pacific Ocean, teeming with life, and trails through Santa Cruz mountain forests, I experienced nature around me as alive and aware,” Thasiah told Runner’s World. “Run by run, it slowly dawned on me how absolutely precious and wonderful the sun and stars, air and water, rocks and soils, and plants and animals are, and how their presence and my awareness made running so joyful for me.
Once there's a chill in the air, it's time to start redecorating your home withthat'll make your home look and feel cozy right through winter. Adding a ton of throw blankets is one way to go, but if you want a seamless fall ambiance, there are a few staples you should consider incorporating into your home decor. And lucky for you, that you don't want to miss.
To create a cozy sanctuary, one of the easiest ways is to add soft textured pieces and warm hues to the living room, bedroom, and dining area—this will look effortless, yet very put together. Fall-favorite fabric materials like silky soft velvet and fluffy fleece are ideal for your bedding and couch to give it a cozy feel in the form of throw pillows and blankets. However, you can also use textured accents and natural tones like burlap and jute in unexpected ways, like on your dining table to give it a relaxed appearance.
I'm So Obsessed With These $24 Target Sneakers That My Cost-Per-Wear Is Pennies
They’re cute, comfortable, and there’s a good chance you won’t want to wear anything else. "Most comfortable fashion sneakers I've ever worn," wrote one five-star reviewer, while another added, "Super cute shoes, and they're super comfy with great arch support!" I find a tell-tale sign of a great pair of shoes is that they feel comfortable from the moment I put them on. I immediately noticed the soles felt as cushioned as another pair of sneakers in my closet that cost triple the price of the Ruby Sneakers, and they never rubbed against my heels, even during my first wear.
In addition to soft textures, color and light are big factors to make your home picture perfect this fall. Think golden accents, orange and yellow tones, and even plaid to add warmth to every room. Just keep in mind that adding these deeper colors needs to be offset by a neutral palette like white walls or light gray furniture. Another instant way to incorporate that comfy feeling is by lighting candles. The warm glow will give you a yellow hue resembling a dimming sunlight, and if you get a scented candle, your home will smell welcoming, too.
You don't have to spend a ton to get a ton—there are so many, and many are going for just $30 and under. Browse this list below to get all the fall decor of your dreams.
