FALL ESSENTIALS 2018
Fall is here and I could not be more excited! Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons: the changing leaves, the crisp cool weather, pumpkin flavored everything.. what’s not to love? This fall season I’ve gathered up some of my old favorites mixed with some new ones that I’ve been dying to try. I’ve thrown some new skincare finds, fashion essentials and some new things I’m trying to try and get my stupid hair to grow faster (I swear it’s a lifelong battle that I’m struggling with… why did I ever cut it in the first place?!). After making an extensive list and rounding up all my favorites, here are my essential NEEDS for the fall time.
First and foremost, fall candles are hands down some of my favorites. Christmas candles are pretty good too don’t get me wrong, but there’s just something about fall scents that just make me utterly happy. Sweater Weather is one of those scents that I just can’t get enough of. It’s literally THE PERFECT fall scent! I know it’s not a soy candle and I’m honestly trying to only buy ones strictly soy… but I’m weak what can I say. The fragrance is listed as Fresh Sage, Juniper Berry, Aromatic Eucalyptus with Essential Oils. I have at least two of these candles as back up just in case they lose their mind and discontinue the scent.
Next up is skincare. I’ve always been a fan of the Clarisonic, especially when the weather gets cooler and my combination skin starts to lean more towards a dryer texture. I FINALLY got a new brush head (I know you’re supposed to change them every 3 months so don’t kill me) and am in love with the radiance brush. It’s super soft but I can really tell that it’s working to get all the grime off my face at the end of the day. I also recently picked up a new cleanser from Pacifica. The Coconut Milk face wash has quickly become a new favorite of mine. The scent is amazing… unless you don’t like vanilla then you probably won’t like it. Even though I haven’t had it for very long I can already tell a difference in my skin. Bonus it’s sulfate free, vegan & cruelty free!
Another new product that I’ve quickly fallen in love with is the Maui Moisture line. I’ve been struggling with growing my hair out for at least 5 years. I start growing it out and then decide to chop it all off… is anyone else like that? Naturally I’m a dirty blonde, which is nice and all but I’ve always had a love for a brighter blonde look. Now you see my dilemma. Constantly bleaching my hair makes me have to take excellent care of it. The Maui Moisture line is also sulfate free and vegan so my hair just feels amazing after I’ve used it.
Now for some of my favorite parts of the fall time fashion essentials! I’ve always had a love for booties. The heel isn’t too high so it’s comfortable to wear and they make any outfit just look put together. One of my new favorites is this grayish taupe pair I picked up from express. I love it because I can wear them with black or brown. I have way too many booties so you could say my obsession is serious.
My other fall fashion favorite has always been blanket scarves. They’re so cozy and you can just throw one on when you’re feeling like you don’t want to do too much with your look that day. Blanket scarves are also one of those items that I have way too much of in my closet. My newest addition is this burnt orange one I picked up from Forever 21. It’s the perfect fall color but isn’t so oversized that you feel like you’re drowning in it.
Honorable mention goes out to my Green Mountain Pumpkin coffee for the Keurig. You didn’t think I would go a whole blog post centered around the fall and not mention coffee… or pumpkin did you?
I hope you guys liked my list of favorites for this season because I love making these kinds of posts! This next week is going to be crazy, I’ve got a trip to Ohio planned and the holidays are coming up (eek). I hope to keep you all updated so keep a look out for more blog posts coming up. If you can, leave me a comment down below with some of your fall favorites! I’m always up for trying new things. Until next time, have a great week!
