Fall Beauty

'Tis the season for coziness and lord knows my introverted ass embraces all opportunities to stay at home wrapped in a blanket, surrounded by candles and plenty of pumpkin-flavored treats. But on the odd occasion that I do leave my house, I have a few special treats that I use to keep me feeling festive and I'd like to share them with you!

First, let's start with a couple things that are exclusively for at-home use:

1) Apple Cider Candle ($12) I light candles every single evening in the autumn and this one is sooo delish that it has been given permanent residence in my bedroom (a very high honor for a candle)

2) Lush Rose Jam body wash ($12) Lush brings this out every holiday season but this is the first time I've tried it and I'm hooked. It's a nice floral alternative to traditional holiday scents (note: it's VERY sweet when you smell it out of the bottle but doesn't smell that way when you use it, it lightens up and is extra lovely)

And to put a little pep in my step, I'm loving these bad boys:

3) Diptyque 'Eau Duelle' perfume ($130) This scent is NOT for everyone (my mother absolutely hates when I wear this around her) but I think it is divine. The top notes are not my favorite but it dies down into a beautiful spiced vanilla fragrance that I think is perfect for this time of year. I especially love spraying it on my coats and scarves before I head out because it lingers ALL day and makes everything smell cozy.

4) L'Oreal x Balmain lipstick in 'Liberation' ($15) Truth be told this formula is not the best (drugstore lipsticks don't do it for me, even if they are a designer collab) but this color is EVERYTHING. It's a great alternative to red/wine colored lips for the Fall.

5) Sally Hanson Miracle Gel in 'Tidal Wave' ($10) Best nail polish formula at the drug store, hands down (yes, even better than Essie and OPI) because it's crazy shiny and lasts SO long! I think this partcular color is a great autumn/winter alternative to reds/oranges/burgundy.

6) Lush 'Lustre' body shimmer ($10) "One is never too old to wear body shimmer, especially gold shimmer that smells like jasmine" - Jesus, creator of Christmas
