This past Labor Day Weekend was spend hanging with friends and over indulging to the max! Nothing is better than living life to its fullest and taking advantage of every last bit of sunshine but there is also a sweet nostalgia that comes with the end of summer. As the days grow shorter and that crisp fall air arrives I get excited for the things to come.
One of my favorite and most simple pleasures for fall is getting to use my dark nail polishes again. I love me a pop of pink or orange as much as the next girl but I feel more like my true self once my little finger tips embrace a darker hue. I adore dark polishes so much so that I had a manicure done with OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark right before I gave birth to my son and I must say it really glammed up that fashionable hospital gown.
While out shopping with a friend this past weekend, I came across OPI’s My Private Jet. Once I got home, I immediately gave my fingers a polish change and I can safely say that this will be my “go to” color for the next month or so. This color has a dark base with a soft sparkle throughout, making it a perfect transition color from summer to fall.

Well, it’s that time again ladies! Fall is here with its cool crisp mornings and earlier sunsets (and we cannot forget Pumpkin Spiced Lattes). What better way to enjoy this season than with a faux fur accessory. Anyone who knows me knows I’m completely gaga for faux fur (as seen here) and it seems that this year is no exception. I can’t wait to add a few more faux fur pieces to my collection. Once little Baby makes his grand entrance I’ll be rocking a faux fur vest or jacket with wide leg jeans and a platform bootie. Too much with a little one? Who cares, it’s going to be MAH-JOR! Here are a few cool picks that I’ve found and I think you will agree that they are completely fabulous.

Yesterday was the first day it finally felt like fall in my neck of the woods. As my hubby was busy watching football I decided to pull out all of my fall decorations and get the holiday transition started. I don’t decorate for Halloween as much as I do for the entire Fall/Harvest season. This way, I find I can leave my decorations out longer and they transition beautifully for Thanksgiving. I’m very grateful for this since I’m sure we will have a houseful this year for Thanksgiving with the arrival of Baby Baron. As I put out my many different candy dishes and pumpkin decorations, I decided that I need to add a little extra flare this year. I went straight to the craft lady herself, Martha Stewart for inspiration. After browsing through her fall craft/decorating ideas I have decided I need to embellish a few pumpkins with glitter and shine. I made the glitter pumpkins a few years back and since they were incredibly easy I’m going to give them a whirl again. Check out all the other ideas Martha has this year to decorate your home. I’m sure you’ll find something to fit your style.
