Fall is Here!! – A few things you need for October.
Firstly, LipSense – Come on. Please tell me you have tried it? Please? If you haven’t, or if you need a new color, you have to join me over at Sarah Loves Lipstick this next week to join in our October Halloween Sale. I have the best giveaway happening, and the softest shadow blending brushes as a gift with purchase. It’s always a good time. I’ll be highlighting some of these colors below!
Pumpkin Everything!! – I do love my annual, highly instagramm-ed sip of the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte, but it has been hot here in So Cal. I have a PSL hack that is life changing. I mean, maybe not, but you should try it anyway. Ask for a grande iced cold brew, and have them add 2 pumps of PS, and a splash of heavy cream. For real… this is just sweet enough without being too sweet, and just creamy enough without feeling like you are drinking melted ice cream. I know that drinking melted ice cream sounds like it must be yummy, but it really isn’t. Anywho.. this is, according to Starbucks nutritions calculations, about 110 calories and under 10 grams of sugar. Soooo.. you can feel a bit better about the 7-10 PSL’s you consume a week (see note). Or maybe that’s just me. 😉
The best pumpkin patch – This is a little bit of a drive for us East County folks, but it is worth it. I’ve done many a photoshoot at Bates Nut Farm, and attended a few weddings too. It’s a great place for you to take your little ones to visit during the fall. The pumpkin patch, a cute little store to shop in, great smartphone picture opportunities, and the farm is full of fall decorations, food, music, hayrides, straw maze, pony rides, petting corral and fun for the whole family. Check it out!
Trader Joe’s List – This is my new favorite obsession. I don’t rightly know how I have used instagram all these years without knowing about this feed, but I just found it. It is a pictorial of new and fan favorite items at Trader’s. I mean.. I seriously screen shot items I want to try and make my shopping list that way. Is that weird? I hope not, but even if so, I will continue because Trader’s is life. And don’t get me started on the collage she just posted of all the pumpkin things. I don’t even like actual pumpkin pie, guys, but I do, I really do love fall. Don’t roll your eyes. I had a super mad crush on fall before Pinterest and Instagram made it into the THING it is today. Fall and I go way back… like 41 years back to be precise. Fall, me love you long time.
White Truffle potato chips that actually taste like truffles? YES.
Pumpkin mini ice cream cones?? YES.
Fried rice made with cauliflower? YES.
So.. you should check it out, is all I’m screaming.
Mustard Yellow Tops – This top from Amazon. Frankly, I love most everything about Roaman’s plus size line. But I really love that mustard is a color that is IN this fall. I love yellow, but I don’t do well with pale or pastel yellows. Or neon yellow, but I’m not sure who could do neon yellow well? I digress. Fun fact: years ago when seasonal color matching was the thing to do, I tested as an Autumn. If you know anything about that, you will understand that it is all warmth and golds and fall inspired colors. And it’s mostly for redheads. I am not a ginger, but it really was true! I do best in warm fall colors.. thus mustard is my jam. These shirts are roomy, and comfy, and can totally be dressed up IF, and there’s a big IF, you don’t cook in them and get lots of oil splatters all over it. Not that oil splatters happen to me. I just wanted to warn those it DOES happen to. 😉
Happy Fall, y’all!
(Please note: I’ve had two PSL cold brew hacks since the start of the PSL season 3 weeks ago, lest you really think I consume 7-10 a week. I mean I know I’m chubby, but even I know better that to think I can afford the cost or the calories, yo!)
