It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

What do I most love about fall? Is it the changing leaves? The cooler temps? In Miami, no. None of that exists. What I most love about fall in Miami is the arrival of pumpkin-flavored things. To help me fake fall, I’m turning to these Nest products for around the abode. The Nest Pumpkin Chai Liquid Soap makes it a changing of seasons every time you wash your hands. And the Nest Pumpkin Chai Candle makes it smell like the holidays every time it burns.

Speaking of smells and things that make me happy, this Modern Muse scent from Estee Lauder is a good fragrance, thanks to a blend of woods and florals, to wear when gearing up for the holidays. Pair it with my beautiful rose gold Messika bracelet (I adore how dainty it is)  and it really is the most wonderful time of the year. Find all of the above at Neiman Marcus.

Don’t Get Stranded

Every fall we’re told what the new hair trends will be. But do you know what never goes out of style hair-wise? Healthy, shiny locks. I’m excited about getting the shape of the season, but first, I prefer to make my hair so healthy it can take the extra dries, irons, curls and waves. To do that, I start with Oribe Gold Lust Repair and Restore Shampoo and Conditioner. With oils and extracts like cypress, aragan and maracuja, I know my hair can withstand whatever new ponytail hybrid is taking tops of heads by storm.  And what’s a good ‘do without a pretty lipstick to offset it? This Mattetastic Lipstick in a neutral shade from Napoleon Peredis is perfect for tying any look together. Find everything above also at Neiman Marcus.

Scrub a Dub

Exfoliating is god’s way of giving you a new start. Here are a few of my favorite new products to get glowing:

Bliss Hot Scrub Salt: Take off the bad, add in the good and smell like you just freshly spa-ed. Find it at

PMD: Don’t have time to schedule an appointment with the derm, especially with hectic holiday hours? This personal microderm system is your next best option. Skin will feel brand new once you’ve used this device to exfoliate. Find it at Neiman Marcus.

Sugar Tulip: Kiss everyone hello this holiday season with soft, beautiful lips. Beating a chapped, dry pucker is as easily as slipping this lip solution on. And with the beautiful tint, no one will even know you’re multitasking. Find it at Neiman Marcus.

Kiehls Eucalyptus Lip Relief: Before bed, I like to pucker up and put on a bit of this lip salve. It keeps kisses soft and supple, just as they should be. Find it at Neiman Marcus.

PCA Skin Ideal Complex Restorative Eye Cream: I love a good eye cream almost as much as I love shoes. After I exfoliate, I like to slather on this cream to ward off the signs of well, life. It’s great for applying before bed, and when I need something a little thicker during the day, I slip it o under my makeup, too.
