Take 1: If "but first, coffee" is your life mantra

Tomorrow will be your favorite day of the year. Celebrate National Coffee Day on Thursday, September 29 with a free (or heavily discounted) cup of coffee from Krispy Creme, Dunkin' Donuts, Peet's Coffee, and more. Spoon University has the full scoop

Take 2: If you love fall but live somewhere warm

Never fear; ShipFoliage.com will handle all of your fall foliage needs. According to Country Living, the online delivery service will ship a three-leaf bundle of leaves, plucked straight from a brisk New England forest, straight to your door for just $20. Worth it.

Take 3: If you're looking for a free Friday night activity

A rare black moon will grace the skies of the Western hemisphere this Friday night, making for a spectacular night of stargazing. A black moon is the second new moon to occur in a single month, a phenomenon that we won't see again until the year 2019. 

Take 4: If boutique fitness classes are outside your budget

The Skyfit app will bring all of those expensive classes straight to your smartphone. Described as an on-demand audio fitness app with both "the power of a personal motivator and the necessity of well-curated music," Skyfit offers treadmill, elliptical, outdoor running, yoga, and cycling classes.

Take 5: If you're planning a movie marathon this weekend

Consider adding a few of Netflix's new flicks to your lineup. Breakfast at Tiffany's, Dazed and Confused, Titanic, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days are just a few of the gems gracing the Netflix airwaves starting October 1. Check out the full list here.

Your afternoon pick-me-up:

Detox while you re-tox with a charcoal cocktail courtesy of Well+Good. Made with simple syrup, scotch, and activated charcoal, this seasonally appropriate drink is the perfect mid-week indulgence. Here's the full recipe.
