Fall means cozy layers, earthy palettes and majestic scenery. Chatting with Ruben and Raina among the colourful hills of Brookland was the perfect way to spend a fall day. Thinking outside the box for ways to upcycle everyday items is both fun and challenging, making you look at things in thrift stores and vintage shops with a new set of eyes! Happy Fall, everyone!
