My Favorite Jewelry Trends for Fall

As back-to-school approaches, I can't help but look forward to the Fall season. One of the best things about Fall in my opinion, is the fashion! With tall boots and suede hats to chic satchels and statement jewelry, it's the best time of the year to have fun with accessories. Personally, one of my favorite Autumn accessories, and the easiest way to update an outfit, is jewelry. From a big bold ear cuff to minimal gold necklaces with interesting little pendants, my fashion forecast for Fall this year includes more modern and sleek pieces.

For example, while I tend to love a pair of sparkly statement studs or a larger dangling statement earring, this Fall I see a modern ear cuff being one of the biggest earring trends, and it's definitely one of my favorite jewelry trends! It looks great on its own or paired with some gold hoops, and you can even pair it with a cool ear crawler. These elegant and modern ear cuffs come with sleek built-in tassel earrings.

Six Steps to Kissable Lips

1. Exfoliate. Just like with your skin, your lips should be exfoliated at least once a week before moisturizing. Use a dab of olive oil and sugar to gently scrub your lips then rub off with a damp towel. You can also use a toothbrush and petroleum jelly. If you're in a rush, you can also use just the damp towel.

2. Moisturize from the inside out. Avoid junk food and fill up on water.

3. Moisturize on a daily basis. Use unscented lip balm several times a day, especially before bedtime. Try to use lip balms made with less preservatives and chemicals and go for ones made with beeswax and natural oils like coconut, almond or sunflower. I love Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm.

4. Plump your lips. If you weren't blessed with plump, full lips you can prime them with a collagen lip plumper. I wouldn't use this everyday as it isn't all-natural, but definitely swipe some on underneath your lipstick before a big date.

5. Don't cake on lipstick. Guys do not want to kiss that. Go for a lip stain or lip pencil and coat it with gloss or lip balm.

6. Pick normal colors. Seriously! I mean it. I don't care what is trendy. If you're going out with your girlfriends, wear whatever you want. But if you are going on a date, for the love of God, do not wear lipstick that is bright orange, bubblegum pink or glittery...especially not glittery!

  1. Some really good info here. Don't you hate it when lipstick is really caked on, or the color just isn't right for that person?
