Fall in Love | Favorites for Fall

Tis' the season of twinkly fairy lights, crackling fires, and pumpkin spice everything!  I absolutely love everything about Autumn as the days get cooler, the nights even crisper, and beautiful leaves all over the ground.  Now that it is officially Autumn I couldn't resist sharing a few of my favorites things that I love about Fall.  I found the Autumn tag from the beautiful blog Oh Dreaming.  So.. let's begin! 
1. What is your favorite seasonal drink? 
Well, honestly year round I love drinking Soy Peppermint mochas from Starbucks, but as it is most definitely a Fall/Winter drink I only truly allow myself to indulge during this time of the year so it is definitely my favorite autumnal drink.  However I drink too many cups of tea during the fall as well!
2. Accessories?- What's your go to in the Fall?
I love hats in the Fall. I believe hats/beanies change a look entirely and can be so much fun in the fall to mix with different layered looks.  However lipstick is truly my favorite accessory for the fall!  Someone once told me that lipstick is a girl's best friend.
3. Music- What is your favorite music at this time of the year?
I don't necessarily have any specific music that I listen to at this time of the year, however I can tell you that I am still entirely obsessed with Ed Sheeran's album 'X'.  Also, I do tend to slip in a few Christmas songs beginning around this time of the year! Shh.. don't tell anyone :)
4. Perfume-What is your scent in the Fall?
Well, I believe I mentioned this in a previous video but my signature scent this Fall is a combination of Jo Malone scents.  The two I use are the Peony and Blush Suede, as well as the Velvet Rose and Ode.  It smells ah-mazing.
5. Candles- What scents will you be burning this season?
I love candles especially at this time of the year! Right now I am burning a Chesapeake Bay Candle in the scent Cinnamon Swirl.  I really love warm sweet scents that make the house smell like you've been baking or like you're getting ready for Christmas.  I also love my Nature's Wick Pumpkin Nutmeg scent it smells so good and is the perfect scent for Fall!
6. What do you love most about Autumn?
I love the entire atmosphere that comes with the season.  I love the feeling of getting ready for Winter as everyone begins wearing warmer layers and boots as they crunch along the sidewalk on the beautifully covered leaves.  I love the crisp cool mornings as you walk out of your favorite coffee shop with a steaming cup of something delicious in your hands and and the sensation of everyone becoming a little more friendly as we are slowly making our way to Christmas.
7. What is your favorite make-up look for Fall?
Mmm... I can't help but love dark berry toned lips. I like to keep a neutral eye palettes using browns and golds, and using a light contouring with a light blush. And then a really great Autumn berry lip.
8. What're you looking forward to in Autumn?
There are so many things I love! Football games, colder weather, shopping, but mostly Thanksgiving!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! It's a little different from what I usually do but I was inspired by my cozy cup of hot chocolate and I loved answering the questions! I officially tag all of you to answer these questions yourself!  Leave a link to your answers so I can see all of your favorite things of Fall! I can't wait to see what you guys love!

Frank Body Scrub | A Review

I am so happy to be back writing on my blog.  After taking a quick hiatus to recover from a very busy quarter of school, spending time catching up on sleep, reading numerous books, and drinking too many cups of tea to count I feel so refreshed and excited to write again.  Amidst the flurry of finals I spent plenty of time daydreaming about break and how I was going to pamper myself when I got home and pamper myself I did!  I stumbled upon an amazing vegan brand called Frank Body and I immediately fell in love with their product.  Frank Body is a Melbourne based brand that makes several different flavored coffee based body scrubs and oh my they are luxurious. I was apprehensive about a black scrub dreading the clean up that would ensue, but reading the descriptions of each product I couldn't help myself. I quickly ordered one of each flavor and excitedly got in the mail a few days later. Quick side note, the marketing for Frank is on point.  I received several cheeky emails keeping me up to date as to when my Frank scrub would be arriving and they actually almost made me laugh aloud!  They made me all the more excited to try the product!  I kept for myself the Frank Coconut and Grapeseed Oil scrub, while gifting the Original scrub, and the Cacao Coffee Scrub to my Mom and my boyfriend's mom!  And oh my god, it was AMAZING. The scrub comes in a resealable bag and the minute you open it the aroma of coffee and coconut envelop you!  I could hardly wait to jump in the shower!  The scrub is definitely messy, but it almost makes it more fun as you're scrubbing away and it's easy to splash it down the drain when you are finished! My skin felt luxuriously moisturized when I got out and only left a faint trace of coffee and coconut scent on my skin.  Throughout the day my skin felt so soft and was visibly brighter.  With so many delicious ingredients it has amazing healing properties for your skin.  I absolutely fell in love with Frank, and will definitely be repurchasing this scrub throughout the Fall and Winter to keep my skin soft, refreshed and moisturized.
Have you tried the Frank Body Scrub? What's your favorite scrub?
