Jams of the Week

I normally hate Yankee Candle candles because I think all the scents smell the same, and I generally don't love colored candles, or their jars BUT the Apple and Pumpkin Picking candle is really doing it for me. It's a perfect fall scent — not too spicy — and relatively inexpensive at Target. I recently picked up the gold striped vase at a thrift store in Newport News for $2. It reminds me of something Kate Spade would have in her home line, and really dresses up these grocery store mums.

I popped into Taste Unlimited the other day to grab a drink and ended up also picking up this Lemon Ice Truffle Bar by Seattle Chocolates. It was so unique and delicious. Not only was the chocolate itself really high-quality, but the lemon bits were such a nice surprise! I love lemon everything, so it's no surprise I enjoyed this.

I'm transitioning into fall-themed cosmetics, so I recently picked up this new Essie color, Cashmere Bathrobe. I love the gunmetal's dark, but it doesn't look black or silver. It's definitely in-between.

I've been following the spring fashion shows as much as possible, and even though the show was for spring 2014, I thought the make-up for J. Mendel looked really fresh for this fall. I love the spice-colored lip, coral-bronze cheek and bronze eye shadow. I've been replicating the look with Maybelline Modern Metallics eyeshadowRevlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef + Nars Satellite of Love highlighting blush and finish off with Cover Girl Queen gloss in Flame (yes that's the dark-skinned collection, but this color would work on all skin types). 

How are you getting into the fall mood? Pumpkin-spiced EVERYTHING? Trying to wear boots yet?
