Fall Favorites 2014!

Fall Favorites
Hey all! I know I’ve been a bit distant lately, A.K.A. I haven’t posted anything since August, but I am back with a BANG! Today I’m bringing you some of my favorite pieces and products this Autumn! I absolutely love Fall, and with my favorite season comes many of my favorite things! From cozy scarves to pumpkin spice everything, here are just a few of my Fall Favorites!
1. Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm Oh my gosh this stuff is amazing. I’ve been a loyal pomegranate user for a few years now with no plans to change my ways. This lip balm keeps my lips completely moisturized, despite the drying Fall air, and has just the right amount of tint!
2. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups No Fall favorites post would be complete without my favorite Halloween candy! I’m a huge fan of all things Halloween, but without a doubt these peanut butter cups have always been a highlight. I used to trade my little sister all of my plain chocolate bars for these babies. For some reason she hates them! CRAZY! Now I just wait for a care package from my mom. She never forgets the Reeses!
3. Red Flannel My favorite Fall clothing items are, hands down, flannels. I’m currently loving this red one from Old Navy! It’s super warm because its a real flannel! Not just a thin, plaid cotton shirt masquerading as one, This shirt is so soft and I’ve been wearing it way more than I’d like to admit. Plus it’s on sale right now for only $11.97!
4. Riding Boots I couldn’t find a picture of the exact boots I’ve been wearing this season (from Easy Spirit to soothe my aching feet) but I love these gorgeous ones from Tory Burch! I feel like riding boots tie together any outfit, even leggings and a comfy sweater! I probably wear my riding boots six days a week on average. My suggestion would be to get boots in a dark chestnut color. They seem to go with the most things!
5. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle This stuff really is a miracle worker. I just use it in the shower after my regular conditioner and it keeps even my curly hair from completely drying out! My hair tends to get brittle when the weather starts to turn colder, but not with this product! Plus it has the delightful smell of coconuts to remind you of sweet summer!
Well that’s all! I hope you liked seeing my Fall favorites. Please leave a comment if you have any questions about any of the products listed above. And let me know: what are your Fall must-haves?
Thanks so much!

Sunday Social

Hi there! I’m linking up for the first time with Ashley Lately and A Complete Waste of Makeup for their Sunday Social!

Here we go!

1. Gum or mints?

Mints, without a doubt. I have always been a gum smacker. It’s something I’m very self concious about but I can’t seem to control it. I know it annoys people, so I tend to stay away from gum. Also, I feel like chewing gum just puts off a bad vibe in general. Plus, have you tried dinner mints?! They’re delicious! I have a jar of them on my desk at work (for the customers) and I seriously just spend all day munching on them.

2. Tea or Coffee?

Tea! I’ve never been a coffee drinker. I’ve disliked it for as long as I can remember. I know that no one drinks it for the taste but seriously, how can anyone stand it? I also hate the smell of coffee, so living on top of a Starbucks for all of Freshman year was less than fun. But I just bought a new tea at TJ Maxx the other day that I can’t wait to try out!

3. Fruits or Veggies?

I really love both, but I’d have to say fruits.I prefer raw fruits and cooked veggies, so fruits are just easier for me. There’s a strike going on at my local grocery chain, so I’ve had to branch out to other stores and expand my produce horizons. Fortunately, I’ve re-discovered kiwis in all of their delicious glory!

4. TV or Movies?

I’d have to say TV, not that I watch a whole lot of it. But when decide between the two, I usually find myself saying I don’t have enough time to watch a whole movie. (Then I get sucked into a six hour House of Cards marathon so I guess it’s an imperfect system.)

5. Candles or Diffusers?

I prefer candles, but I can’t have them at school. I’ve been loving Yankee Candle’s ‘Golden Sands’ this summer! Honestly, I find that the reed or oil diffusers don’t really work. They lose their scent very quickly. I do really like the Bath and Body Works wall plugins. I use those at school. I can’t wait to pick out a new scent for the fall!

What do you think? Do you agree with my favorites? Let me know in the comments!
