FOOD

Twinnings Ultra Spice Chai – This is not the most “natural,” but it’s available at my local grocery store, and it tastes darn good with some almond milk and honey if I want a hit of sweetness. I’ve been getting back into teas in general now that the weather’s changing. Both my fiancé and I caught colds in the last two weeks, and I’ve really been loving the Traditional Medicinals Cold Care P.M. It’s a blend of fresh peppermint and soothing, calming herbs like passionflower and chamomile. I highly recommend it even if you’re not feeling sick and looking for the perfect, caffeine-free evening tea.

Soups – I’m loving the Smitten Kitchen Roasted Tomato Soup and of course butternut squash soup. I hit up the farmer’s market for its second to last week of the season (sad) and picked up local ingredients on the cheap. The roasted tomato soup is super rich and dairy free, which I love. It’s also got a hit of spice that helps clean out the sinuses and leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy. It is delicious.

CLOTHES

ASOS plaid, oversized scarf in green and blue – I have a bit of a scarf problem. This blanket scarf let’s you get in on the trend, but I like the different colour scheme. It’s almost neutral, it’s super soft and warm, and it works well with almost any jacket or coat.

Angela Roi Wine Cross Body – This company makes beautiful and pretty affordable vegan leather purses. They have so many trendy designs and an insane amount of colours. This colour is perfect for fall!

SKINCARE

S.W. Basics Exfoliant – I posted a picture of this on Instagram remarking on how awesome it is, and it’s the truth.  I received it in a recent Goodebox and didn’t think it could possibly be that great. Wrong. It only contains three ingredients, and I’ve tried my hand at a DIY oat and almond scrub before to unimpressive results, but this stuff rocks! It’s probably the sea salt. I let it sit on my skin with some water or toner, it dissolves into a smooth paste, I rub it in, and it leaves my skin feeling super soft and nourished. It also only costs $12 and is available at some Targets!

Kari Gran Essential Serum – I posted all about this serum here, and fall means dry skin. This is my go-to, morning moisturizer, and I absolutely love it. It is light, it sinks into the skin, and it leaves my face feeling so smooth and plump.

Kari Gran Lip Whip – As I’ve said before, this lip balm is amazing. Just one application fixes any dry lip situation.

Deep Steep Body Butter in Honeydew Spearmint – I don’t like honeydew in real life, but the scent of this lotion is incredible. It’s fresh and a bit fruity. I love this brand because it makes me feel like I can still play around with scents, and it’s so affordable.

MAKEUP

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Aubergine – This colour screams fall to me. It’s a deep berry purple. It’s super opaque, and I mix it with a balm to make it into more of a stain for daytime. I also like the matte finish of this product on its own. I highly recommend picking it up in this Best Bite Rewind set of four matte crayons!

Honest Beauty Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Mulberry Kiss  – Another lip crayon! This is from the newly launched Honest Beauty makeup line. Of course, I couldn’t resist trying out one of their lip products. The finish of these crayons is much glossier than the Bite Beauty and they have a shorter staying power. The mulberry colour is less bold than the aubergine, and I really like it for everyday wear.

100% Pure Nail Polish in Jam – This strikes the perfect berry colour between red and oxblood with a hint of pink undertones. It’s also my first polish from 100% pure, and I found the staying power pretty good.
