Blustery winds, hot apple cider, crunching leaves, caramel apples, fireplaces, the smell of cinnamon.... I can not wait for Autumn!!!
It is hands down my favorite season, not just for the great sweaters and boots, but because it's a sign the holiday season is right around the corner. That means it's time to start buying gifts for others, but you don't want to put yourself in the poor house, eating ramen everyday for the next 4 months. I have found some items that anyone would be happy to recieve, but don't make you weep and your wallet bleed.

  • EOS Lip Sphere is the best lip balm I have ever used. Lemon Drop is my flavor of choice, tastes great and has an SPF 15. With it's unique look and price of $3.95 it's a steal.
  • The Comforter Bubble Bar  from Lush might seem expensive at $9.95, but it is a large bar at 7oz. and it takes the tiniest bit to get a huge tub of long lasting bubbles. The scent is a decadent berries and cream type, delicious.
  • Crabtree and Evelyn glycerin soap in Lavender is a light, calming scent that is exactly how I picture the french countryside smelling. It is a vacation every time you soak in the tub. And at $8.00 a bar it's a heck of a lot cheaper than most flights.
  • Cupcake solid shampoo bar from Fortune Cookie Soap is perfect for travel or if you just want to be tempted to eat your hair. It thoroughly cleans your hair and makes it smell like the sweetest of bakeries.Yum! $8.00
  • Philosophy Double Rich Hot Cocoa is a shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath all in one for $10.00.  I like to use it with a mint bubble bath, it smells like winter.
  • Slide On Pencils from NYX Cosmetics are a dream to work with. They are super pigmented and last 24/7, no smudges or melt away. At $8.00 they are also half the price of a similar, more expensive brand. A must for anyone who likes bold eye looks.
That is it for the moment. I really enjoyed doing this little guide, I might do a few others in the next few weeks. Hope it is helpful!!!!
