Not only is it time to swap our closets for fall, we should be making the swap in our makeup bags as well! To be honest, my normal beauty routine in the spring and summer is a throw-on-and-go type of situation. BUT fall beauty trends are SO much fun! Velvety textures and shimmery powders give dull skin a new life while darker pigments give lips and eyes a sultry feel. I’m loving the Sigma Beautyfall eyeshadow palette and lip colors which offer a little bit of both! Plus, Sigma Beauty products are ALL paraben-free and formulated without sulfates, mineral oil or casein.
See which products and colors I’m most excited about in today’s full post!
The other day, I was trying to count how many times I’ve been to New York City. This past fashion week was my 10th time in the Big Apple – I couldn’t believe it y’all! Needless to say, I’ve learned quite a lot along the way when it comes to NYC airports, public transportation and maneuvering around the city in general after much duress. So I thought that it would be perfect to share my top 3 NYC travel tips in case anyone was planning fall or winter visits this year! (Already planning a return trip for fall!) I’ve teamed up with Sofft on this post because their Somers slip-on sneaker is hands-down my favorite airport shoe! Plus, this year it totally saved my feet in between fashion week shows and meetings!
With fashion week coverage all over the internet right now, it’s easy to feel runway inspired! But what about in your own home? Capri Blue – my favorite home fragrance brand – is an exclusive partner of this year’s NYFW shows. I’ve teamed up with them to share how my Capri Blue candles display a bit of fashion week glam around our house every day! Not to mention – they smell UNREAL and the gilded jars can be reused as beautiful containers when they’re finished. Sharing ways to reuse them in the full post!
Ps. Another special thing to note about Capri Blue candles – they’re made in the South. Like literally right down the interstate from me in Starkville, MS. SO much love for my southern brands!

Sparkles and embellishments are going to be huge for fall, and I love how the Capri Blue candles are the perfect amount of glitz that you might find in fashion accessories this season. Statement pieces are always in style!
This past weekend, we had to move my sister’s bachelorette party from Austin, Texas to Nashville, Tennessee due to Hurricane Harvey at the very last second! We literally canceled and rebooked flights less than 24 hours before we were supposed to leave which also meant wiping the entire itinerary clean. So without a single thing planned, I hopped on IG Stories asking you guys for serious help on what to do in Nashville. We only had two full days there, and your suggestions ended up outweighing the time we had in the city! I wanted to write a full post on where we went while including every single tip that you sent along too! Read the full post for a full list of Nashville bachelorette trip recommendations.
I can’t thank you guys enough for all of the amazing tips and suggestions – I was floored by the response!
Ps. Keep in mind that I don’t have a ton of photos for this post because it wasn’t a “work” trip! And we stayed in an AirBNB, so there are no hotel recs in this post.
A ritual I have before the start of any new season is purging my closet. While we are on the cusp of early fall months, I want to encourage you guys to do a little summer cleaning! Not only does a clean closet give you major feel-good vibes, it also makes it so much easier to get dressed! (Not to mention, it makes room for fall new arrivals!) So in today’s full post, I’ll be sharing a few of my tips on how to clean out your closet + methods for keeping it organized.
UPDATE: In light of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation, I’m purging my closet for a cause! All of the items not practical for donation will be listed on my Closet Sale site with all proceeds going to Houston women’s charities. Items to be added over the next few days!
