"Vacations all I ever wanted! Vacation had to get away!" Our exact thoughts, who couldn’t use a tropical vacation right about now? It’s the time of the year when everyone packs their bags for resort getaways to shy away from the Winter Blues. We totally get it! When it comes to packing and bringing the necessities DASH has you covered.
We’ve created our top 6 Vacation MUSTS; you won’t want to miss this.
Bikinis are SO last year, kidding, but really. We absolutely adore one-pieces this season, especially for resort. They are so trendy and also completely compliment your body from all angles. We’re loving the solid color one pieces with some added detail, this makes for a versatile onesie and keeps all eyes on you instead of the suit.
Sun hats are still a thing, don’t worry. This is one of those pieces that is often forgotten but you’ll be happy we reminded you. The perfect accessory that just makes your overall swim/beachy look a 10/10. Plus keeping the sun out of your face and off your head is a total plus!
You can never have too many beach bags or backpacks for that matter! If you’re heading to the pool, beach, or for a hike you’ll definitely want something to carry all your necessities in. Backpacks are amazing because they are so much easier to carry and you can usually fit more goodies inside.
Most of the time we’re music people when it comes to hanging by the pool but honestly picking up a good read while lounging… doesn’t get much better than that. Take time to get yourself a great book and choose reading over anything! You’ll be much more in tune to your vacation and take that step out of reality you’ve been longing for.
Well we don’t expect you to stay out of the sun but, we definitely expect you to protect your skin! It’s so important to always wear sunblock and reapply when necessary. Many skincare brands have been releasing sunscreens that are amazing and great for your complexion.
Last but not least, SUNNIES! For sure one of our favorite accessories and an absolute must for your vacay. We’ve been totally into the oversized look still but also loving those round sunglasses to give you that Boho Beach Girl look.
Ah feeling some FOMO right about now! Sounds like we might need a tropical getaway ASAP!

2017 is a fresh start for just about everyone, with that being said there are a lot of changes people tend to make during the New Year. For us, we are definitely fragrance fien and finding that new perfect scent for your year is a MUST.
Take a look at our top 6 fragrances for 2017… PS we wish we could have them all.
Who doesn’t love a Tom Ford fragrance? This perfume feels so luxurious when spritzing on for the day. With notes of orange and tuberose, spider lily, and cashmeran this scent feels almost warm and harmonizing. Definitely a scent for the ultimate woman, not to mention the packaging is drop, dead gorgeous.
Another outstanding package just makes this fragrance feel so much more luxe and the scent of this will definitely have you feeling that way. Champagne spiked with bergamot, cream orange blossom, and honeysuckle… I mean cheers to that, we already love.
Ok, so we mainly love this one for the unreal packaging but it’s also a major plus that the scent is to die for. While it may look like a cleaning product, don’t be fooled it’s bergamot, mandarin, and ylang-ylang with hints of raspberry, cedar wood, and peony. It’s basically fruity meets flirty and we love, love, love.
We loved this scent in 2015, in 2016, and we just can’t seem to get rid of it in 2017, if you haven’t tried this one… make it your go-to scent of the New Year. Trust us. It’s super warm and luxe smelling with mandarin, jasmine, orange blossom, vanilla, + coffee notes to name a few. Instant seduction.
Another warm and cozy scent that features a smoky, manly essence while still staying ultimately feminine. The title doesn’t lie… it’s literally chilling by a fireplace on a winter night. Pink pepper, orange flower petals, vanilla, and cashmeran notes for that glowing warmth of Replica.
Last but simply not least we cannot forget about this gorgeous little number from Valentino. This is the ultimate two in one, standing as a perfume and a hair mist. A delicate scent with notes of bergamot, iris, and Italian leather… you need NOW. This also comes in a normal fragrance if you don’t love the hair mist.
Ugh, these are our absolute favorites to rock in 2017. Everything from classic scents to more daring-occasion fragrances, adding any of these to your collection surely won’t dull it.
Comment down below and let us know which you love for yourself this year.

This is one of the easiest but most successful ways to relieve some stress. We’ve made a playlist for when you just need to relax and breathe to get through the day.
Eating healthy can is a huge benefit to feeling less stressed and fatigued. When eating unhealthy it can make your day feel like a total drag, preparing healthy meals and snacks for your day will benefit you greatly.
There are so many different teas to that help calm and relieve stress. If you’re ever feeling overwhelmed we recommend having a cup of tea. The caffeine will give you that push for the rest of the day as well.
Exercising allows endorphins to be released into the brain which is a natural remedy for anxiety. Allowing your body to exercise daily will help level out your stress levels and make you feel better day-to-day.
Like exercising yoga has similar benefits and can release a lot of built up stress and anxiety. Yoga is also beneficial because you can do poses wherever you go! If you're feeling stressed at work we advise doing some light yoga or calisthenics with your co-workers.
Having a journal and writing your thoughts, problems, etc is an easy way to relieve stress. Sometimes talking about issues helps us understand what’s really bothering us and it can be a huge relief in itself.
Essential oils have shown to improve anxiety symptoms and stress. Most grocery stores like Whole Foods carry essential oils; you can even get a diffuser to use in your home. Lavender, Rose, and Chamomile are our favorites for stress relief.
A small kind act to yourself and usually a no-brainer, however many times we get so busy and forget to drink water throughout the day. Keep a water bottle of some kind with you at all times staying hydrating will make you feel great.
Sometimes you just need to go on auto pilot mode and let yourself take a long drive. Play your favorite music and let any overwhelming feelings escape. This can be a great stress relief, allowing yourself time to think and be alone.
We encourage you to try any of these out for yourself in times of stress or anxiety. These tips may immensely and many of them are so easy that you can do them on a day-to-day basis without changing much of your everyday routine.
With the New Year also comes a time to set resolutions or realistic goals for yourself to achieve. It’s fun to have a fresh start and be mindful of what you want to come in 2017.
Here’s a list of 15 New Year’s Resolution Ideas- Make this your best yet!
Happy New Year Dolls! Comment down below and let us know what your resolutions are this year.

We can hardly believe that 2017 is only a couple days away, we’ve got our outfits, shoes, makeup, and last but not least we need to make sure we have the final touch… our HAIR!
We’ve been inspired by many different up-dos, waves, braids and more for our New Year’s Eve look. We want it to be the BEST yet!
Pop! Clink! FIZZ! Here are our top picks to ring in 2017 from the best of the best.
We love Khloé’s look here, it’s fun but a little bit edgy. This style is also super easy and works with most hair lengths.
Section half of your hair into two pigtails, starting at your temple, and keeping the half up, half down look going. Take one pigtail and slightly twist and backcomb for extra volume. Wrap the pigtail around until you’ve created a bun. Secure with bobby pins or small rubber bands. Repeat for other side. After securing, use hairspray to finish the look and loosen the buns for a messy look.
This look is great for short hair lobs and bobs, if you’re unable to do up-dos or braids with the length. So classic!
Start with clean, straight, dry hair. Add mousse of your choice for extra volume. We recommend using the Kardashian Beauty 3 in 1 for curling but any iron 1.5 or larger will work. The goal is to create loose ringlets in the middle of the hair, not at the roots or ends. Divide your hair into one-inch sections and curl alternating directions each section. Finish off with combing through your curls to make them extra loose and wavy, add texturizing spray and done!
A Kim K classic look, you can’t go wrong with this one on NYE! It’s so simple yet completely chic and timeless.
Start with clean, straight, dry hair. Do not add products of any kind. Pull your hair back into ponytail at desired height and smooth strands with nylon and boar bristle brush. Secure with elastic band. Smooth sides with hair gel serum to provide hold. Spritz hairspray. Wrap around single strand of hair to cover elastic hair tie and pin in place.
This look definitely was a hot one for 2016 and we can only hope it continues to 2017.
Split the hair down the middle using a comb to create two equal sections. Grab a small section of hair to begin braid. Divide into three equal sub sections and begin inverted French braid. Cross the two outside strands under the middle strand and continue braid under. Secure fly-aways with styling balm for sleek look. Continue down until you reach the bottom and tie off with elastic band. Repeat on other side.
As effortless as this looks, this is actually one of the more difficult styles to get exactly how you like… but once you do you’ll be in LOVE.
Start with second or third day hair. Add dry shampoo of your choice for volume. Tease your hair at the crown of your head. Part your hair down the middle, but keep it short, one or two inches only. Pull back your hair and loosely secure elastic band. Pull out pieces as desired and tighten to head for extra volume.
A polished blow out with a tiny bit of waves is so effortless. We love this look and it’s perfect for any occasion.
Start with clean, wet hair and rough dry it with a towel. Apply fast dry spray while running fingers through. Start drying hair until about 80 percent dry. Separate your hair into four sections, crown, each side, and back. Twist and secure with clips. Attach nozzle to dryer and use nylon boar round brush. Use the brush to pull the hair upward as you direct the airflow down. Remove the brush and repeat until all sections are dry. Roll hair away from your face to create a look to frame your cheekbones. Lock in your style with a smooth finishing crème.
Comment down below and let us know if any of these styles will inspire your NYE look. What are you looking forward to in 2017? What would you like to see at DASH? Let us know.

Tis the season for gift giving and present wrapping! Wrapping presents might be one of our favorite parts of the Holiday season. It’s a time to be as creative as you want and make each gift special. There are so many wrapping options this year and we are loving the use of kraft paper and adding little festive décor to each present. It’s very easy and inexpensive but makes your gifts look phenomenally chic.
Typically for gift wrapping you’ll need scissors and tape of your choosing. Kraft paper is super versatile and you may already have some laying around the house which is even better. If not, you can pick up a roll for about $5-$10 at your local craft store. You'll also want to get some string of some kind to tie around your gift, we picked a candy cane inspired red + white, but you could get whatever you like. Lastly, you will need some little décor pieces to add to the top of your presents. We like the idea of fresh pine branches, which you can either gather from outside or the grocery store usually sells this seasonally. Other cute ideas are ornaments or snowflakes from places like Target or dollar stores.
You can add pretty much anything else you want to make it as festive as you’d like.

We’ve also created some printable gift tags to add to your presents as well. Simply select the photo to open in a new tab and download the file. Scale and PRINT! You can then cut out these super cute holiday tags and attach them to your gifts with string.
The best way to spread holiday cheer! Happy Holidays from DASH!

Every month DASH picks a different charity to donate proceeds from our DASH wristbands sold both in-store and online. We support a culture of charity and giving back to those in our community and in need. This month we are donating the proceeds to Toys for Tots.
Toys for Tot’s mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys during the October, November, and December months each year. Those toys are then distributed as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. The funds we have collected throughout the December month will be donated directly to the charity to then help purchase gifts.

We are also giving back to our community at our corporate office by collecting toys and craft items to donate to the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. We have started our collection bin and the week before Christmas we will be dropping off all our goodies to be distributed to patients.
We love to give back in any way we can. It’s the reason for the season! If you are interested in helping support the Toys for Tots cause we encourage you to stop by your local DASH store or ShopDASHOnline.com to purchase a DASH wristband; for only $5 you can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

Art Basel started in 1970 and has since become a world-wide phenomenon that many gather for to experience the beauty and creativity of the art industry. We have participated in Miami Art Basel for the past few years and each time it gets that much better.
This year we partnered with Kentucky natives, now LA Based, designers & artists Caroline Bentley Noble and Katherine Van McKinney. The two founded the company V2Bentley (@v2bentley) where they create one of a one pieces “for the fearless and wild hearted only.” Kourtney, Kim, & Khloé's favorite street-style designers.
We turned our DASH Miami location into a hot 90’s haven, full of blow-up furniture, lava lamps, and custom canvas from V2Bentley accompanied by a collection of leather goods & one-of-one apparel.
We honored Basel throughout the duration of the week and finished with one final hoorah on December 5, 2016. We hosted a private event and had the most stellar turnout ever, from artists, to designers, and even professional athletes. It was an amazing time to come together and celebrate the beauty of the creative minded. Our VIP’s received exclusive DASH x V2B merchandise as well as some DASH goodies.
A special thanks to our DJ Brittany Sky (@brittanysky), she kept the party going through the night and spun some killer tracks. Mike Sipe Entertainment provided the equipment to make this all possible. (themikesipe.com). Thank you both so much!

Drinks were flowing courtesy of Ciroc (@ciroc) and Sugar Factory (@thesugarfactory). How cool is this Ciroc slushy machine?! Sugar Factory also provided light bites throughout the night and finished off with some sweet rainbow doughnuts. Yum!
And of course, last but certainly not least… everyone’s favorite part of the party. THE PHOTOBOOTH. A huge thanks to Shutterbox Photo Entertainment (@shutterboxsfl) for providing such a rad photo booth, we couldn’t have asked for better.

It’s that time of the year when we get all dolled up for our holiday events with family, friends, and co-workers. Picking the perfect outfit is major key but making sure your entire look comes together is also very important. We’ve picked our top 5 beauty essentials to create a holiday inspired look to go perfectly with that soiree cocktail dress.
First and foremost, if you have not invested in a holiday eye shadow palette you need to do so now! We love the new Kylie Cosmetic palettes however; if you’re having trouble getting your hands on one of those this is definitely our next go to. Pick something that offers a combination of neutrals and colors so that you can mix and match throughout the seasons.
Next, blush is definitely a must. A rosey cheek look is always so in during the Holiday’s and we aren’t mad about it. This is the time to go for those pink and red tones and step away from the nudes and orange tones.
After blush we go highlighter crazy, as they say we need that highlight to be on fleek. There are so many amazing highlighters out there now that this one was for sure a tough one to choose. We had to go with out favorite palette where you get 6 for basically the price of one. How could you say no?
Lashes, lashes, lashes. Tis the season to bring these out, lashes can really make your look. We like to stay pretty natural and nothing too crazy but go for the long length to accentuate and open up the eye. This will truly make your look pop and dress your night up.
Last but certainly not least, the lip. Another very important part of your Holiday makeup, winter is the time to play with those bold, darker shades especially when you have an event to attend. We love a matte lip this way you don’t have to worry about reapplying or ruining the color.
All together these products make an amazing look and will have you turning heads at your upcoming party, event, or whatever it may be.

We’ve just launched a new UK based brand in-stores and online and we wanted our blog readers were the first to know. We love what this brands stands for and how it was started with a cultural message in mind.
A Black and White Story brands themselves on “equality lies at the very heart of our brand. No matter what gender, race, religion, beliefs, age or sexuality, we believe we can live in a united world, a black and white world, where truth reigns.” How amazing is this? We are so stoked to be carrying these pieces and offering our favorite dictionary tees to our Dolls.
Their pieces have also been worn by celebrity and blogger favorites such as Beyoncé, Tove Lo, Dani Song and many more.
Make sure to get yours before they are sold out!

“Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.” Nigel Hamilton
We celebrated our Thanksgiving at DASH Corporate a few days early this year to ensure everyone could be together before traveling to family and friends over the Holiday weekend. We each brought different dishes to share as this has started to become our tradition. It’s so much fun to try each other’s recipes, enjoy one another’s company, and to be thankful for such an amazing team.
Some of the dishes we shared were green bean casserole, potatoes, cranberry salsa, macaroni & cheese, pumpkin pie, Oreo pie, rolls, pastries, and more. We can’t forget of course a DASH crowd favorite: Porto’s baked goodies.
Everything was so delicious! We want to share a few recipes with you; these are all super quick & easy. Perfect for last minute ideas for Thanksgiving Day or any occasion really.
Directions: Cut up all ingredients as needed and blend to in a food processor or blender. Spread over cheese cream and serve with Triscuits.
Directions: Preheat over to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients (except corn flakes + 2 tsp of butter) and place into a large pan. Baked covered for 45 minutes. Mix together corn flakes and butter. Sprinkle over potatoes. Baked uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and toss with breadcrumbs. Bring 4 quarts water to boil in a large pot. Stir in 1-tablespoon salt and the macaroni, cook until tender but still firm. Drain macaroni and leave in colander. Add remaining butter and melt over medium heat. Stir in garlic, mustard mixture, and cayenne. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in flour, cook until golden, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk and broth. Bring to a simmer. Cook, whisking often until mixture thickens. Off heat, whisk in cheese until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in macaroni and pour into 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly over top and bake until golden brown. 25-30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

Bake pie until center is just set, 55-60 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
So thankful for our DASH Team and all the yummy food we shared together!

If you had a chance to read our blogpost featuring our new Buyer Janice Kim, you already know a lot of new is coming DASH’s way and we are SO excited. We have so many new brands being introduced as well as our very own private label.
We just received our first shipment from our newest brand My Mum Made It and we are utterly OBSESSED. This brand is amazing and embodies garments we have never carried before but truly fit the new trends as well as the aesthetics of our style god’s: Kourtney, Kim, & Khloè.
We are also a selected carrier for this brand so it’s super exclusive that we will be selling the collection. It's been worn by influencers such as Niykee Heaton, Amina Blue, + more. We love how streetwear inspired it is; this totally embodies the coming era of this trend. The simplistic silhouettes and compositions allow each wearer to style them as desired and layer up, making it a versatile and edgy collection for all.
DASH will be carrying My Mum Made It in-store and online with pieces hitting both very, very soon. You can expect to see a lot of velvet, a lot of distressing, and some one of a kind styles like a bodysuit bomber, amazing right?!
In the meantime, check out their stellar Instagram and get excited for My Mum Made It at DASH!

DASH has come a long way since its launch is 2006 as a singular location in Calabasas, CA. As a multi-vendor boutique, we have not only expanded our stores nationwide and worldwide with our online shop, but our collection of handpicked pieces from top designers has grown immensely.
Today we are having a Q&A with our new buyer Janice Kim, who comes to us from an extensive buying background. She sneaks peeks what is to come for DASH's future.
Q: Tell us a little about yourself!
A: I’ve been in the fashion industry for 7 years & it’s never failed to keep me on my toes! I’m 5’2 but my friends call me Big Jan, I love my mules as much as my tennies, pizza as much as kale, and yoga as much as gangster rap.
Q: What does your role entail?
A: From styling the photoshoots, to product development for our newly launching private label, to actually curating the pieces in all our stores, I like to touch my hands on a bit of everything.
Q: What does a typical day as a DASH buyer look like?
A: What I love about buying is how dynamic it is. No two days may be the same, but what it comes down to is getting our stores the best, coolest product. If I’m out at the shows one day, I still need to manage inventory & sales, stay in touch with brands, and keep up with competitors.
Q: How do you decide which trends to pick up on?
A: It’s about making it work for your customer. Not all trends are relatable to the masses, and understanding the DASH girl (and guy) is the key part of my job.
Q: What is your favorite part of the job?
A: There’s a special place in my heart for product development. My end-goal always is for DASH to offer awesome, aspirational pieces you just won’t see elsewhere.
Q: What is the hardest part of the job?
A: Differentiating the trends or styles you as a buyer might like, but your customer might not.
Q: With being a multi-vendor boutique, which brands are your favorite or new brands you are looking to bring in?
A: Rag & Bone made me fall in love with denim. I once was notorious for never wearing jeans. I love every single piece from AREYOUAMI. I’m petite, and she knows how to dress a short girl.
Q: What are three essential pieces to splurge on this season?
A: OTKs (Over-the-Knee Boots), silk cami slip dress (I’m a sucker for real silk), leather backpack (can’t get over Kendall+Kylie’s).
Q: Who is/are your style icon(s)?
A: I obviously get heavy inspiration from our owners, and DASH thrives on their aesthetic. Hailey Baldwin slays.
Q: What advice would you give to people interested in this aspect of the fashion industry?
A: Work hard, work smart. More often than not, it isn’t glamorous. I got my corporate start at a major retailer, worked ridiculous hours, and built a foundation of skills I still use every day.
Q: What can we expect to see for the future of DASH?
A: New cool vibes are headed our way… we’ve already relaunched the site, and our DASH label collection is next. Stay tuned. xx

At DASH Headquarters our creative souls can't go a day without listening to the hottest jams throughout the work day. We love sharing music with one another to get us through the busy, stressful days and we thought that we would share with all of you!

With everything to R&B, Hip Hop, Soul, + Indie Electro, we basically cover every genre over here.
Aside from our top favorite songs included in the playlist, album wise we are obsessing over the new Banks, Lady Gaga, Solange Knowles, and new Drake singles just to preview a few.
Comment below and let us know what new songs you are loving from the playlist and if you want this segment to become a regular thing on the DASH Blog.

Whether we’d like to believe it or not, before we know it Fall will soon be over and the Winter months will be in full swing. With that said, our favorite time of the year – undoubtedly – is the transition period for fashion between the two where it is not too cold, but the heat wave has dwindled in its entirety. There is no more perfect time to swoon over amazing outerwear pieces that will soon come + go.
We’ve said it before & we will say it again, but it’s basically a no brainier that if you don’t own a leather moto jacket or bomber you need to purchase one NOW.
Bomber jackets literally go with everything; it’s a must-have piece in your closet to transform your style into a sporty, edgy, carefree look for Fall.
No secret to twenty-sixteen, dusters have become the “IT” piece; a lightweight trench is also another piece you should be adding to your collection. This is the perfect garment to wear casual or dress up for nighttime while keeping covered.
Let us know below what your go-to outerwear this season is in the comment section.

A compilation of all things we are loving this October.
Created by beauty editors, skincare + makeup all in one. Celebrating real girls & imperfections for those natural makeup looks.
Obsessing over block heeled boots with statement patterns or textures. Make your shoes the center of attention this season and keep the rest of your look minimal.
Banks, an Orange County native released her new album called The Altar full of a raw display of emotions. We’re hooked.
Los Angeles - West Hollywood’s new rooftop hot spot, with over 340 seats and a retractable rooftop, this place is anything but boring. It’s quite the “catch” if you ask me.
New York - A new addition to Chelsea, this wine bar feel restaurant with all vegetable focused dishes and over 1,600 bottles of wine to choose from.
Miami - South Beach just got a new amazing late night spot, a casual sandwich joint with 12 different options for what is known to be an iconic sandwich.
The latest list of what we are currently obsessing over this month. Let us know in the comments below if you’re going to be trying out any of these stellar picks!

Halloween is right around the corner which means it is time to start planning your costume for this year. Instead of buying an already made costume, we encourage you to get an idea of who you want to be and put all the pieces together yourself. This makes for a super chic, one of a kind look plus you can usually wear the items you have purchased to incorporate into the costume instead of being stuck with something you may never use again.
Comment your favorites below + let us know what you are going to be this year!

Picking your nail color this Fall may be a bigger deal than you even realize, with so many color tones surfacing and trending it can make or break your nail game if you go wrong. We have curated a few combos of our go-to nail hues this season. Now, we love to keep the manicure + pedicure the same and tend not to mix it up, however we advise you to step out of your comfort zone and try these remarkable duos.
Pair different shades of purple and mauve, these hues while still in the same family give a complimentary look while being able to have different tones on your hands & feet.
If you don’t want to step out of the box too much, go for a deeper red than you typically would. Pairing this red with an off-white grey brings the hues full circle without being overbearing.
This combo is perfect for your girly side if you’re looking for something pink toned but want to stay away from summer colors. Pairing a deep nude with a cream color for your toes is so chic!
In the past we have loved black for our manicures, however this year we are seeing more navy and blue tones popping up. Pair your navy with a super light almost white grey for your pedicure for a super luxe look.
These are our favorite combos for the Fall season and can even be used for the transitioning period to Winter. We’ve stepped away from our traditional nudes/pinks and have incorporated deep tones and light hues.
Comment below and let us know which combination you are going to try!

Accessorizing during the Fall season is a MUST! However, with the season’s & weather change, you have to start dressing for the cold as well as keeping stylish. Adding a belt to your look can be super easy and effortless, by adding it to your denim or even a dress can up your look in a matter of seconds.
Take a peek at our style inspo:
We are obsessing over these timeless, chic looks and had to recreate them ourselves. And we think you should too!
If you haven’t yet picked up a belt to mix and match with your new fall wardrobe you still have plenty of time. This is for sure a staple piece and we don’t want you to miss it!
Comment down below and let us know if you are going to be accessorizing with belts this Fall and what other accessories you are adding to your wardrobe.

Wohoo! Officially the first day of Autumn! How exciting, this is definitely one of our favorite times of the year. We welcome so much new to Fall, a new season full of the latest trends, cozy sweaters + chilly weather and preparation for the holiday seasons to come. In today’s post we have for you some of our fall favorites from fashion to beauty, plus an amazing home fragrance DIY, you must try!
It’s no surprise that this print is making it’s way back into Fall, as it always does. We love having a flannel all year round but especially during the September-December months. This piece is really the perfect addition to your wardrobe, whether you’re tying it around your waist or wearing it as a button up… YOU NEED!
As the days + nights get chilly and we progress into the colder days ahead, a scarf is definitely something that won’t go to waste. This piece is so versatile because not only can you wear it to be keep warm, it’s a great piece to be fashionable in. There are so many options out there but these are definitely our faves.
Picking your mani and pedi color is really no joke, it’s honestly so important to get the right combos to match the season, your style, as well as trends. Dior - Palais Royal Nars - Endless Night Essie - After School Boy Blazer OPI - The Cable Car Pool Lane
This beauty must is for sure more daring than usual, but we recommend trying it at least once. Black liner is of course a classic but this season we are seeing so many red and burgundy tones especially for eye makeup. Try switching up your everyday liner for a shade like this.
One of our favorite things about Fall are the scents that come out this time of year… Pumpkin, Crisp Autumn Air, Bergamot, Heirloom Mahogany, + Soft Musk are just a few of our favorite notes. We have an amazing DIY for a home fragrance, simmer pot that is super easy and will make your entire home smell like the Autumn.
What you’ll need:
-2 Navel Oranges, Peeled
-1/2 cup Dried Orange Peel
-1 Apple, Sliced
-1 tsp Cloves
-3 Cinnamon Sticks
-1 tsp Cardamom Pods
-1 tsp Fresh Ginger
-3 Star Anise
-Medium Sauce Pan
-5 Cups Water
*You can use almost anything you like or whatever you have available to you will work.
Mix everything together with large pot of water and simmer on low for however long you want. Add additional water as needed. You can also use a crockpot instead of simmering on the stove.
This scent will stay within the home for days + hours, you can also reuse your mixture for a few days and cover when not simmering. Not only is the smell amazing, it looks beautiful too. So easy!!
