Fall Must Haves/Cravings!

Hey guys! Before I get into this post, I just wanted to apologize for the lack of posts I've had over the last couple months. If you follow me on Twitter, you already know that my laptop broke a couple months ago. I had a macbook and I absolutely loved it, so I definitely want to repurchase another one and I'm sure you know, they're not the cheapest things in the world. In all honesty, I cannot afford to replace it at this moment in time, but I should have a new one in the next couple of months. Thank you to everyone who stuck with me in the meantime, I really appreciate it.
So because of my lack of posts and horrible blogging lately, I have decided that when I do finally get the opportunity to replace my macbook, I'm going to start making Youtube videos! It's something I've wanted to do for a long time and I'm really excited to take my love for beauty and the urge to help and inspire others to the next level. Did I mention I'm really excited? :)

Now on to the blog post! Fall is right around the corner and I couldn't be happier. I'm all for summer, but Fall is my absolute favorite. I crave the Fall all year round- layering clothes, dark, vampy makeup trends, colder weather, thunderstorms, falling leaves, burning candles, fall scents, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING....-you name it! So with that being said, I just wanted to share with you guys some of my must-have beauty and fashion items for Fall, as well as some items that I'm craving for the season this year.

I hope you all enjoy it and definitely let me know what your favorite Fall items are!

Revlon, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Victoria's Secret

In the fall, I'm OBSESSED with any kind of sweaters and off the shoulder tops. I prefer them to be loose fitting as well.
I also pair EVERYTHING with leggings. They're so comfy and go with everything.
Another must have fashion item for the fall are scarves. They're a great way to spice up a casual outfit and make a statement. I love any scarves with polka dots, leopard, stripes, or a bright color.
For shoes, I chose Toms. I'm not really a high heel kinda girl. I mean, I'm sure I would be if I had places to wear them, but I don't. I have more of a casual chic, simplistic style. Toms are comfy and can go well with a lot of things. They're great everyday shoes. I also love boots for the Fall!
I love cross body style bags for this season as well, especially brown leather ones. Charlotte Russe makes great ones for affordable prices!

As far as beauty goes, I love anything matte. When Fall rolls around, I swap out my shimmery makeup products for anything matte. I especially love matte lipsticks and blushes. My favorite matte blushes are MAC Melba and Illamasqua Naked Rose. For lipsticks, I love darker shades. Revlon Matte Lipstick in Mauve It Over is a great soft, pinky mauve that is great for the transition from Summer to Fall. I also go for my red, burgundy, purple-toned lippies in the Fall. 
While the weather transitions into colder weather, I start to get dry patches as my skin adjusts, so moisturizing is key! My favorite moisturizer at the moment is the Loreal Future-E Daily Moisturizer + Daily Dose of Vitamin E. It makes my skin hydrated, but remains lightweight, as I do have oily skin.

Lastly, the scents! One of my favorite things about Fall is the scents. I love anything and everything pumpkin spice, but I also love any baked goods scent. One of my favorites is Apple Crumble by Slatkin and Co. When I worked at Bath and Body Works last Fall, I couldn't resist this scent. Apple Crumble is also one of my favorite desserts :) Bath and Body Works also has a limited edition scent called Brown Sugar and Fig, which is my ABSOLUTE favorite, but is only sold two times per year. Luckily, this Fall it is part of their Fall collection. I definitely recommend checking that out because it's absolutely heavenly! I'm not sure if it will be sold in candle form, but I know that it will be sold in body lotions, body spray, shower gel, etc.

What are your favorites for Fall? Let me know in the comments below!
