Hi, everyone! Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the crisp cool air. The fashion that comes with the layers of warm clothing. The dark nails and berry lips. Pumpkin pretty much everything. I love the changes of the leaves and hay rides. There’s an apple orchard not too far from where I live. We always get fresh picked apples and cider. I’m sure you’ve heard these reasons before as I have too. But they seriously are the best things. I decided to share with you all my autumn essentials for the upcoming season.
Sweaters – I love a good sweater. I own about 10 I think. There’s just something about a cuddly sweater on cold days that’s so much more enjoyable.
Scarves – Where I live, by the mid-end of the autumnal season it gets super cold. I rely on scarves a lot to keep me warm through the colder months. I love that you can just throw on a cute scarf and a coat and look fashionable. I could be wearing a t-shirt underneath and no one would know.
Dark Lips – When it comes to beauty, I’m not one to travel too far outside of my comfort zone. I can’t pull off those deep burgundies like some. I’ve discovered that my color of choice when I want something a little darker is a deep rose. I love this color. It’s just dark enough for me without being overpowering. Two of my favorites this autumn is NARS ‘Tolède’ and BareMinerals Moxie Lip Gloss in ‘Maverick’.
Nail Polish – I love dark polishes in the autumn. Essie is my favorite nail polish brand. I love the wide range of colors and I find the polish last longer than any other. A few of my favorites is Essie’s ‘Limited Addiction’ which is a dark red and Essie’s ‘ In Stitches’ which is a raspberry color.
Apple Perfume – Apple scented things, especially in September are my favorite. The DKNY ‘ Be Delicious’ has been a longtime favorite of mine. The scent combines the scent of apples with exotic flowers and sensual woods.
Candles – I have a bit of a candle obsession. It’s actually gotten to the point that I’ve forbade myself from buying anymore (we will see how this actually goes). But there’s something so relaxing about sitting all cuddled up with a candle nearby. Some of my favorite scents for this season are Bath and Body works ‘Mahogany Teakwood’, ‘Pumpkin Pie’, and ‘Leaves’. Also Yankee Candle ‘ Apple Cider’.
Lattes – Okay, so this is probably the most basic of them all. But pumpkin spice lattes are literally heaven in a cup. I look forward to them all year. Here’s a little secret I’ll share with you all. Get these reusable Starbucks cups they’re $2. Bring it with you and ask for a tall in it. More times than not they’ll give you a grande for the price of a tall plus ten cents off for bringing your own cup. Best deal ever!
I hope you all enjoyed my autumn essentials. If you missed my last blog post I’ll have it linked here.
