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!!
