Fall Favorites

| "Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul..." -Peggy Toney Horton |

This week's post is a bit different from my usual lately -- because it is now the second week of September, I want to share with you all some of my favorite fall products / pieces / unnecessary necessities. Wait, a blog post from me, about fall? Unheard of!

  (The Autumnal Saga continues.) 

With the recent beginnings of change in season, I have been absolutely loving all of these little gems. I hope this provides lots of festive inspiration and tips for the transition into fall!

For everyday autumnal makeup looks, I've often been mixing the subtle and rosy Benefit Dandelion Blush with my favorite fall lip color, Maybelline's Divine Wine. Because the lipstick is a dark plum shade, I try to keep the rest of my makeup bright to contrast with the bold lip. The light pink in this blush is the perfect match and effortlessly balances the look. 

For eyeshadow, my favorite fall trend is blending shimmery pinks over warm, orange undertones. One of the best palettes to use to achieve this look is the Too Faced Natural Love Eye Shadow Palette. It's full of gorgeous oranges, shades of pink, and neutral tones! I also love wearing the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade Toast of New York to top off orange-toned makeup looks; the lip shade itself is a bright, orange-undertoned nude and looks so festive with the eyeshadow!

I'm going to keep it short and sweet with a fall fashion favorite (as we all know that there is plenty of that on this blog already..). I absolutely love adding these Forever 21 lace-up booties to my fall looks - they're so effortless and incorporate chic attitude and more of an autumnal feel into all of my outfits. As I bought them last fall, I believe the exact matches have sadly sold out online, but I found a pair very similar here

Another fall favorite that I just have to add is my record player and a few of my recent favorite records. Listening to and appreciating music is like breathing to me - I have to have it in some form or another. Nothing soothes and comforts me quite like quieting my mind, playing a record, and being still.   

Regardless of the season, one of the best artists for these moments is Novo Amor. I cannot recommend his music enough or put into words how beautiful it is. Listen to him. Follow him on Instagram. Support his art! I wish I could tell you how much his music and the songs of artists similar to him have helped me and still bring me internal clarity every single day. Another artist I highly recommend is Daughter. To say they are lyrically brilliant would be an understatement. Again, their music has had an incredibly powerful impact on me. I definitely recommend checking them out! And, of course, everything is better on a record player, right? 

Two final favorites I want to recommend are this fall-scented candle and seasonal tea. In continuation with what I said about winding down with a record, I have yet to find any combination better than soft indie music, burning candles, and a cup of hot tea. Nothing - literally, nothing - is able to calm and recharge me like this does. I found this little fall leaves-scented candle at TJ Maxx (I believe it is by Scentsational), and it is basically happiness in a jar. I'm also currently obsessed with this Harvest Blend Herbal Tea from Trader Joe's. All of fall's best tastes converted into one hot drink? I'll take it! Always two thumbs up for this duo. 

I hope this has provided inspiration for you and that you're looking forward to fall's blossoming as much as I am!
