With fall just around the corner as August comes to an end, it’s time to swap out our summer clothes for our fall wardrobes (or not, if you’re like me and wear the same clothes year-round). So whether you’re like me or not, here are my essentials for fall.
Striped t-shirt dress from Forever 21
Maroon circle scarf from Primark
Navy mason jar mug from Ocean State Job Lot
Black boots by Divided (purchased at H&M)
“Country Apple” body lotion from Bath & Body Works
Lipton tea in “Purple Açai and Blueberry”
Stone necklace from Forever 21
Plaid flannel shirt by Haband
White high-top sneakers by Converse
Hand painted rock art from a local artisan in the shape of a kitten
Candles from Yankee Candle in Hazelnut Coffee (top) and Cinnamon Toast (bottom)
Small black crossbody by Kenneth Cole Reaction
Nail polish by OPI in the shade “Visions of Love”
Lip cream by NYX in Soft Matte Lip Cream “Copenhagen”
And of course, no fall list is complete without a gingerbread mix (courtesy of a local craftsman shop).
Simple cleansing micellar water
Simple eye make-up remover
Bioré self heating one minute mask
Post it big pad 11"x11"
The Women Widowed to Themselves by Lora Mathis (Available through Where Are You Press)
'CATFINATED' mug from Francesca's (Thank you Michaela for the birthday gift)
August has been full of stress, as I gear up to go back to school, while also juggling Bruised Knuckles and a retail job. My skin has been breaking out like crazy and these three products have done wonders. The toner and make-up remover are oil free and leave no gross residue behind and the mask sucks all the yuck out of my pores. Plus, the self heating part feels amazing.
I've been using these giant post its as reminders, notes, and even to post my work schedule. The size and color make them impossible to ignore, and I love that they scan into the Evernote app for a mobile reminder as well.
The Women Widowed to Themselves by Lora Mathis is an amazing collection of poetry. Mathis knows the right words for every situation and her raw, candid voice is a welcome change.
My new cat mug has been a source of unending amusement while I drink coffee and put on makeup every morning (especially when my cat tries to stick his face in.)
