Banana Republic Silk Cashmere Crew

Todd & Duncan Cashmere Crew - Light Pink

If there was a sweater specifically made for this time of year it would be the Banana Republic Silk Cashmere Crew.  I love it because it is figure flattering, lightweight, warm but not heavy, and a great price.  I wore it 3 times in the first week I had it, and I am not ashamed.

Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen in BronzeBeam


I love to incorporate more bronze colored makeup during the Fall, and this eyeliner is the most beautiful bronze shade. It’s incredibly easy to use and very flattering with blue eyes.

Bath and Body Works Sweater Weather Candle


If you like more masculine scents you’ll love this candle.  I’ve been burning non-stop this month.

Keeping Your Skin Moisturized During Cold Weather

Fall is here and Winter is nearing which means it is time for me to step up my body skincare routine. I live in a particularly dry climate so Winter is devasting to my skin if I don’t take the proper steps. Below are some tips to keep your skin healthy and moisturized during the colder months.

Don’t Take Hot Showers

I know a hot shower is tempting during the cold season but it’s important to take a room temperature shower. By taking a hot shower you are depleting your skin of it’s natural moisture.

Apply Body Lotion While the Skin is Still Damp

By applying lotion while the skin is still damp you are allowing the skin to absorb the lotion better.  I also find that it helps prolong the lotion.

Use a Heavy Body Lotion

I always use a heavier lotion during cold weather because my skin needs it.  Below are some of my favorites.
