It’s My Season!

Autumn Leaves

Some of you know that Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year. The changing landscape paints a beautiful nature canvas of leaves turning rich shades of red, yellow and gold. The temperature shifts from hot and steamy to crisp and chilly. It’s the time of year that prompts long afternoons drinking tea while snuggling under a throw and catching up on some reading.

Ok…who am I kidding? I have a 6- and 8-year old. There’s no time for the at-home luxuries of Autumn! But it is still the time I love most. There is a quietness broken only by rustling trees and the crunch of fallen leaves under the sole of those brand new leather boots you bought on sale ;-).

So for you Summer Sun Worshippers, don’t fret. Embrace ‘Snuggle Season’ and enjoy nature’s beauty. Find a reason to love the Fall!



Fall Makeup Changes

We have finally gotten some chilly weather in NY and I’m so excited – because that means my favorite season is here. It’s Fall y’all!!

But the changes in the weather also mean changes in skincare, makeup and haircare routines. I tend to use a little more moisturizer on my face to prevent dry skin, and use a body cream at night to protect my skin. In terms of makeup, I tend to shy away from the sun-kissed face and opt for muted jewel tones. This year, I’ll probably mix it up a bit. I keep hearing orange lips are going to be in this Fall, but I don’t know if I’m ready to find my perfect shade just yet!

My fave beauty blogger Afrobella has a great interview with makeup artist extraordinaire, Tia Dantzler. She  mentions mixed textures, jewel tones, bolder brows and metallic makeup. I can get with all that.
