Fall Favorites

October 10, 2017

Thank you Aquaphor® for sponsoring this post!

The moment I see pumpkin spiced latte’s hit the counter at the coffee shops, my heart skips a beat. It’s officially turning fall, and I could not be more excited for cozy nights curled up with my hubby with a warm scented candle and a good movie. Still not convinced to let go of summer? Check out a few fall favorites below along with a couple of inspiring fall quotes to jump-start your spirit for autumn.

“Fall Breeze and Autumn Leaves”

My skin is the first to notice the change

Where I live, the weather changes faster than the elite runners at the Boston Marathon, especially this time of year. One minute, I’m in my gladiator sandals, the next minute I’m covering myself in blankets and pulling out sweaters and scarves. Oh and my skin definitely takes a hit. My skin tells me it’s ready for a change the minute I take off my jeans. You know exactly what I mean don’t you? The 5 minute scratch session right after you pull off your jeans and your skin is so rough and dry. Oh it’s just me huh?

The minute this happens I have to pull out something that I can depend on to relieve my dry, rough skin all day. As a child my mom would lather my skin in the Aquaphor® Healing Ointment before bed and when my children were born she passed down all her mommy tips of how to best use it to care for her grandchildren. My love for the brand runs deep and we always have a jar on hand or a small tube in a bag.Aquaphor® has a NEW Ointment Body Spray that is easy to apply even on hard to reach places like your back.  This spray is just what I need for the fall because it immediately soothes, and relieves dry, rough skin all day.  I really appreciate how the continuous spray evenly coats my arms and legs giving my skin a radiant and healthy looking glow. The spray is fragrance free in case you were wondering – no pumpkin scent is available by the way!


“I never met a pumpkin I didn’t like”

There is no fall in my house without candles

When it comes to scented things, I am not a floral lover at all. I much prefer the fall scents, like the ones that make your mouth drool when you walk past the cinnamon rolls in the mall. Think homemade vanilla ice cream, gooey cinnamon buns, pecan pie, caramel apple, and toasted marshmallowy kind of scents. Those top my favorite scent list way beyond anything floral scented. So when fall comes around I just can’t wait to get my hands on the Pure Natural Soy Candles. I usually get Pumpkin Mocha, Pumpkin Bread Pumpkin Spice and whatever other pumpkin scent I can find. I really like soy candles because they are non-toxic since they are made of vegetable oil, have a lower melting point (so the wax itself doesn’t get as hot),  and soy candles release no known carcinogens into the air.

“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.” – Bryant

There’s no lipstick like this one

Every fall I pull out my rich deep burgundy, aubergine and maroon lipsticks. This color is a really gorgeous and what I love about it most is how unique it is. The color is something between a burgundy, a plum and a brown but with a metallic finish that is just so pretty I can’t help but wear it almost every day. The lipstick comes in a jumbo pencil making the application very quick and because the color is so opaque with just a few strokes you’re good to go. It dries down to a matte finish but the metallic finish gives off the illusion of a shine and yes this lipstick will stay on all day with just a little fading around the lip line at the end of the day. I get so many compliments when I wear this color and I made sure to pick up a brand new one this fall because I don’t want to be caught without it.

As you can see I’m a very simple gal. Do share your fall faves with me in the comments below!

    Pumpkin Mocha? Mmmmmm… I need that candle in my life, and right away I think. This other stuff looks really great too, I”ll have to try that ointment spray. Also, I love the lipsticks in the crayon format-and that color looks so pretty!

    Aquaphor is a must in our house. The Colorado winters and summers for that matter get so dry. My hands and feet and legs get so dry. We have used Aquaphor on our kids for years too. It is a great brand for all types of skin….especially my super dry skin.

    I have use Aquaphor on my kids for a long time. It is a great product. Even though they are older I still keep it in the house.

    I have a pumpkin mocha candle and it smells so good which is surprising because I’m really not a pumpkin spice kind of girl. It’s probably the only scene I can tolerate lol

    I have been wanting to try this, but I can’t find it anywhere! I am going to keep searching!

  • Reply Nadalie Bardowell October 11, 2017 at 4:37 pm

    I hear you, my skin reacts right away when the seasons change. Ouu aubergine and maroon coloured lipstick would look hella lovely in the fall. Candles are a necessity honestly, it goes perfectly with hot chocolate and a good novel.

    I use Aquaphor SO much, it’s one of my very favorite must haves – but I haven’t seen this body spray! I NEED to try that! It’s so amazing – it works wonders so I can only imagine how great that is! Definitely going to try and grab that this weekend!

      Its really good. Be sure to spray it while standing on a rug because with any spray you will have residue on the floor.

    Oh my, you just made me miss autumn so much! I miss the change of seasons. As for these products, I haven’t encountered these yet and I think it’s worth looking into. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    Love all of the listed Fall Favorites! There is norhing like hydrated skin, beautiful fall inspired lip color and pumpkin candles! There is nothing like the yummy scent of pumpkin to fill your home in the fall!

  • Reply Shereese November 3, 2017 at 7:16 am

    Fall is my all time favorite season. So pumpkin is a great scent and taste. This season tends to have my skin extra dry so staying hydrated is a must as well!

  • Reply Tieasha Samuels November 3, 2017 at 7:33 am

    I am always anxious to bust out my pumpkin spice candles @ the 1st sign of Fall. It is my favorite season of them all. I also switch over to using my shea butter 100% vs every other day like during the spring time. I will have to try this spray ointment!

    Not a huge fan of pumpkin flavors…. but I love apple spice and anything peppermint…. my skin loves oils and butters in the fall and winter. And don’t get me started on my orange mint candles or my apple spice candles….. #❤️Thefall

    I’m the same way. It’s not fall until I can smell the warm scented candles. They bring up so many warm memories and feelings of being home with my mom. I don’t get to see her much now that I’m all grown up. I’m definitely going to have to try that lip pencil. The color looks so pretty and fall appropriate.

  • Reply Joni Metcalf November 3, 2017 at 9:44 am

    Huge fan of pumpkin anything! Candles & of course Pumpkin spice lattes!

    Now that winter is upon us, my skin feels like an alligator’s in the desert! I have heard of Aquaphor but never tried it and with your recommendation, I’ll have to try it and see what it can do for me! I need MOISTURE and need it to last all day!

  • Reply Stephanie November 3, 2017 at 6:12 pm

    I love brown lippies, baked good scented candles, warm boots, scarves, and baked good scented body products in the fall! It’s the best!!!

    My fall fave is mulled apple cider especially if it’s organic. I just found out today that Suja made one just for the fall season..I’m really excited to try it!

    So many fall favorites love them all! I love warm boots and apple cider this time of year.

    I wish I could find a lip shade I liked! The candle looks amazing!

  • Reply Angela Martin November 3, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    I love the fall but it does take a toll on my skin. I have heard of Aquafor but I’ve never tried it. I love the smell of fall scented candles. They make my home so cozy! The lipstick looks so pretty. I have started trying different shades of lipstick to see what looks good on my dark skin. Thank you so much for sharing this!
