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.

Lancome Crescendo Peel Review


I hate to give another negative review, but I am not in the business of giving good product reviews simply because I received it for free. Earlier this year, I was given a full size sample of the new Lancome Crescendo Peel courtesy of Influenster and Lancome. I was excited to try it, because hey, I'm reaching my forties, so anti-aging skincare is important to me.

I've long been a fan of retinol for anti-aging, as well as products containing peptides and hyaluronic acid, but the idea of a fancy two-phase night peel was intriguing. After I looked up the market value of this product and found it to retail for $75.00, I thought, this better work!

The Lancome Night Peel promises a reduction in fine lines and deep wrinkles, as well as an evening of skin tone. I have to say it did even out some of my dark spots, but so does vitamin C serum that I can get at a much lower price. It did nothing for my fine lines, though ironically helped with a few of my deeper wrinkles around the eyes, but so does just about any night cream containing retinol. And while I didn't have any reactions to the serum, there were several reviews saying that it caused drying and breakouts. It is heavily scented, so if you're sensitive to that, you definitely won't like this product.

So all in all, I really cannot recommend it. It did deliver on a few of its claims, but it is way over-priced considering other products that cost much less work just as well if not better. And the good results simply weren't consistent. When I browse the other reviews, I can't help but think that some of the great reviews aren't completely honest, or are very particular to certain skin types.

Unless you have very sensitive skin, I highly recommend you give some of these other anti-aging options a try. I absolutely love Neutrogena  Advanced Rapid Wrinkle Repair with retinol, as well as L'Oreal Revitalift firming cream, and L'Oreal Revitalift Triple Power Serum with Pro-Xylane and hyaluronic acid.
