2016 Fall Favorites
So Long Sweet Summer. My Fall Favorites Are Here.
You may be chasing summer for as long as possible, but fall is here. You may be resistant at first, but the season seems to change at exactly the right time. With the new season, we get a new start, start to healthy choices, a fresh mindset, a new beginning to whatever you want. Cool crisp air, leaves changing colors, you are probably starting to think about the holidays. I know I am. I’m that girl, first gust of wind, and I’m in my sweater and winter boots. Yes, it’s still 79 degrees in LA.
It’s time for me to share all my fall favorites with you. Let’s get to the good stuff.
Pumpkin Everything. YASSS. Pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread. The list goes on. You name it and I’m making a healthy version of it. Stay tuned for my favorite fall recipes.
Skincare. Of course we have to mention skincare. My skincare routine changes as the seasons change. I add in a heavier moisturizer as skin tends to get more dry in the colder seasons. I like to switch to hydrating masks, think moisture, glowing, and plumping. I also make sure to use a good hand cream, always. The appearance of your hands can reveal your age, so make sure to take care of your hands (and neck) just as you do for your face (SPF & Moisturize).
Fall Wardrobe. It’s time to dust off that winter coat that’s been hiding in the back of your closet, break out that pretty scarf and those trendy boots. I love fall clothing, cozy sweaters, grab a scarf and go. A beautiful black leather jacket with boots is my go-to look.
Football Season. Okay, football may not be your thing but it’s a great excuse to get together with friends over food and drinks. Any excuse for food and drinks right?
Halloween. There are always two types of girls on Halloween. Whether it’s dressing up in that sexy mouse costume this year or trick or treating with your little ones, Halloween is always a good time to get together with loved ones and friends. I have no clue what I will be this Halloween. I’m always open for suggestions!
Fall Weather. If you love running outside, you love fall weather. Even if you don’t love running (like most of us), you still love fall weather. Its the perfect weather where you need a light jacket and you are good to go. Think chilly outside, hot cocoa by the fire.
Fall Colors/Feels. Something about seeing the leaves change and experiencing the change of seasons makes me so happy. It’s just so beautiful. Besides the changing leaves, we go from bright, summer colors to darker hues. Darker nails. Darker lipsticks. A deep berry or red lipstick in the fall just feels and looks so right. I also like to switch up my perfumes. In the summer, I like to stick with a light, floral scent. Now, I like to switch to a stronger, sexier scent like Tom Ford Black Orchid or Flowerbomb.
Candles. This gets its own category because nothing beats walking into a room with a beautifully scented candle to make the home smell and feel so cozy and get you in the holiday mood. Candles also make a great gift around this time of year.
There you have it, my fall favorites. Let me know what you guys have been loving. I love discovering new things.
Lots of love,
