The temperature is starting to drop and the air is feeling slightly more crisp. To me, and every other woman out there, this means fall is just around the corner.
Fall happens to be my favorite season and I think I can say that it's most women's favorite as well. I say this because it's time for leggings, scarves, boots and sweaters, oh my. There is nothing a gal loves more than to find the perfect pair of knee-high boots or that fabulous pair of leggings that make your bum look oh so great (Lululemon, anyone?). Sigh, I love fall.
I was perusing Polyvore today and stumbled on so many gorgeous outfits that I couldn't wait to show them to you. Are these not perfect for fall?
This last printed sweater in this set is just gorgeous! What do you think glossers? Would you wear these looks?

At the prompting of a friend, I recently purchased the Rimmel Chubby Sticks. (Thanks Lori!)
Okay, I call them chubby sticks because they are as chubby as Clinique's version and their name is WAY too long to remember. However, they are in fact, called Lasting Finish Color Rush Long Lasting Intense Color Balm. ...Wow, quite the mouthful.
Despite the long name, they are actually amazeballs. From left to right, I purchased Viva Violet, On Fire, Keep Mauving and Rumour Has It.
Keep Mauving is such a gorgeous nude tone. It's actually my newest favorite lip balm! The color is great when paired with a smoky eye OR any bright eye color. Love it.
Viva Violet is a vibrant violet tone that works really well with my magenta hair, thank goodness, as the red tones do not look as good! This one is great for a punch of color and keeps your lips moisturized!
On Fire is an orange red that, unfortunately, does not look great on me. It's definitely not a tone that works with my skin tone as it's too warm.
Rumour Has It is gorgeous. It's a bright mulberry tone that packs a huge pop of color. I will definitely be getting this one again.
I purchased these at $8 a piece and for a lip balm, I am still very impressed. The color packs a lasting punch and your lips stay nice and moisturized. Not too bad for a drugstore find! Anyone else tried these colors? Thoughts?

I am so in love with Sephora's Colorful Shadow & Liner pencils. Not only are the colors fantastic, but the price is perfect ($18 CAD) and they last all day with one application.
The color I am wearing here is called My Boyfriend's Jeans and it's an electric blue that I feel makes my eyes POP.
As for the rest of my face, I am wearing all the following amazing things:
Younique Cream Foundation in Organza
NYX Concealer in Porcelain
Younique Powder Foundation in Velour
Mark Touch and Go Shimmer Cream Cubes
ELF Studio Blush in Peachy Keen
High Beam Highlighter
Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner in My Boyfriend's Jeans
Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara (1 coat only)
Younique Lip Gloss in Luxe
There you have it ladies. Tell me, what do you think of the bright blue? Is this a trend you'd wear?
PS - I'm leaving you with a shot of me and my little guy, Benjamin. He's almost 3 months now!! Please excuse my no makeup!!!

So, this past week we were in Calgary visiting my sister and her hubby. While there, in addition to her meeting Baby Ben, she colored my hair using a balayage technique and I am now the proud wearer of magenta/purple hair!!
I am so loving my new hair color and feel so inspired. I've always wanted a crazy fun color but being that I work in a fairly conservative industry, I thought it best to be bold while on mat leave. I should mention that my sis is a super talented stylist and amazing colorist and when given the opportunity to have her style my hair, I always jump at the chance.
Thanks, Lisa, you did a fantastic job!!

A long time ago, back when I was in high school, I thought floral prints were passe. Truly, my mom would try to make me wear them and I would run out of the house screaming because, according to me, floral prints were not cool.
However, now that I'm in my 30's, I realize how amazing floral prints really are. And not only floral prints but anything containing a flower is also cool. I am loving the look of floral scarves, heels and even floral purses.
Guess my mom was right, all those years ago.
What is your favorite (albeit SECRET) trend?
