Fall Fun Finds

As much as I am really ready to leave this Summer behind, Mother Nature is pounding LA with high heat and humidity making it impossible to even fathom the cooler days ahead.  Even so, I am all about the change in season and have collected a few things to help me get started.  Enjoy!

A nice, bold berry lip is necessary for Fall this year.  I found a perfect shade that works for all skin tones... Maybelline Color Sensational in Blissful Berry (base coat), topped with Raspberry Ablaze High Shine Gloss and then fill in for a fuller effect as a finishing touch with a plum liner.
Added a smidge to my cheeks for an overall blushing look  - Easy, minimal, hassle-free look!

Stop what you are doing and head straight to Bath & Body Works for this scented candle.  It makes my world so much happier!!
If you plan to purchase only one new item for the season, my pick is a leather (real or vegan - your choice) biker jacket.  I got the above from H&M and love the look for dress up or down - basic, versatile piece.  It's really a no-brainer :)
Just the right amount of edge to add to a monochromatic look - keeps things interesting.
Favorite snack 'o the moment = fresh baguette, toasted walnuts, creamy bleu and an ample drizzling of honey... simple layers - huge flavor!  Inspired by this pic from Pinterest largely in part due to the  butcher's paper used as a serving tray.  Gonna need a roll of this!

Cheers to a new season of Major Baggage!
