My Fall/Winter Style Wishlist for 2017

October 27, 2017

I’ve created a Fall and Winter wishlist/shopping guide for those of you who want to stop impulsive buying. I grew to love wishlists because they keep me focused on what I need to buy rather than what I want to spend my money on. My style tends to change from season to season, the wishlist includes key style items, skin products and accessories so that you have an idea of what you want to purchase during both the fall and winter. With a few major sales coming up, now is a great time to get your wishlist in order so you can snag a few pieces on sale and avoid buying random things that only look good because they’ve been discounted.

 

 

Currently Loving: Autumn Knits, Boots, Skincare & More!

Unfortunately, this list does add up and not everything on the list will make it’s way to my closet but over time and with a little help from Santa I will be able to snag a few of these items!

Cozy Fall Diary

October 11, 2017

I had a great summer and now that fall is here, I decided to share some of this season’s favourites with you. I have seriously been counting down to Fall since July of this year. LOL! It is definitely my favorite season. The thought of cozy fall outfits and sipping pumpkin spiced lattes puts me in the best mood.  I love enjoying the simple things that make me happy and that’s what matters, right? 🙂

       

I’ve been waiting to pull out my cozy sweaters from my closet but the weather hasn’t been predictable. I wore this outfit a few times this fall and I love how comfortable it makes me feel. When the weather does get chilly, I stick to wearing long sleeved sweaters and cardigans. I paired this outfit with ankle boots I purchased at ALDO.

FALL BEAUTY

For my skin and daily beauty routine, I like exfoliating three times a week during the fall season. My skin gets dry in some areas so this  pumpkin walnut facial cleanser by Feel Renewed is perfect! I received a sample of this cleanser in my September Ipsy bag. I love it because it smells just like fall.

FALL BEAUTY

I also received this Photo Finish Foundation primer by Smashbox in my September Ipsy bag. I don’t usually wear foundation but I use this to give me a beautiful glow underneath my concealer and bronzer!

FALL INDIGO

Having some cider this fall? Indigo has some cute mugs for the perfect fall drinks.

You can find mugs like these at Indigo.

FALL CANDLES

Nothing makes fall cozy like an autumn chestnut candle. I found this candle at Indigo and I have been saving it for a movie night.

FALL INDIGO

I love Indigo’s selection of pillows and they have a larger selection online to choose from. You can decorate any cozy space with them to create that fall inspired decor in your own home.

Looking for some fall recipes? This illustrated cookbook offers 180 recipes to choose from. Embrace the autumn sun with Seared tuna with fennel confit, or Butterflied king prawns with mango; watch the leaves fall while indulging in Chestnut risotto with sage and pancetta or Five-spiced duck with pomegranate salad; snuggle into winter with some Chipotle-braised beef ribs with spicy baked pumpkin or an Apple and quince pie; or celebrate the freshness of Spring with Moroccan broad bean salad with yogurt and crispy breadcrumbs or Blood orange and dark chocolate trifle. Harvest will inspire you to build delicious seasonal feasts for any occasions in the year.

 

Don’t forget your tea this fall! The perfect fall tea is definitely a spiced chai with some milk and sugar in my opinion 🙂

Things to do this Fall:

Carve a pumpkin

Make fall recipes

Read more books

Watch Halloween/Fall movies

Eat a caramel apple

Go to a fall festival

Finish decorating my home for fall

Buy more sweaters

Go apple picking

 

Happy fall! xo, Yvonne K.
