Fall Romance

Over the weekend a couple girlfriends and I got together. We enjoyed our fair share of romantic comedies and fondu. While we talked we realized that not only were the three of us single but our summer was filled (well some of ours ;)) with one-night stands and fleeting short-term relationships. Fall was coming (it’s now arrived and it’s 80 here in Michigan – makes no sense) and that would present the opportunity for new connections as we curl up together in blankets and spend quality time near a roaring fire. When the weather turns crisp and cooler those of us who didn’t want a summer relationship tend to now crave a fall one, actually a relationship that will carry on further than fall.

Fall allows us to be vulnerable and not only does it set the trees on fire, but it sets our hearts on fire as well. So while I experienced the best summer I have had in a long time, my heart is ready to be vulnerable this fall – what’s your plan for your heart this fall.

Fall To-Do List

Fall has always been my favorite season. I love how you don't need an excuse to bake every weekend, cozy up by the fire with a blanket and watch movies or just hang out by a bonfire. Since today is the first office day of fall, here is a list of things i'm planning on doing this year.

The Germs Lurking At The Gym

Recently I heard a study about all the yuck that hangs out at the gym - and trust me you don't even want to know what you're touching. Here are some tips to keep you from catching some nasty stuff.....

Wipe Down the Equipment Before and After Use:
If your gym doesn't have wipes keep some in your own bag to use on your skin after your workout.

Use a Towel as a Barrier:
Especially with your yoga mat so your skin never has direct contact.

Don't Touch Your Face: Even if you wipe off your equipment there's a chance the germs are still lurking. To prevent getting something like a staph infection (yeah that's super popular at gyms) definitely avoid contact with your face.

Wash Your Hands Before Leaving The Gym:
To prevent spreading germs on more of your personal surfaces definitely dont skip this!

CND released their Fall 2015 Contradictions Collection and let me tell you it’s the perfect depiction of fall.

Grommet is a navy metallic gunmetal definitely a fall must have for your edgier side.

Naked Naiveté is my favorite color in the collection. It’s a neutral pink tone and would look stunning against any skin tone.

Posion Plum brings out your inner evil villain with this moody plum jelly filled with black and red flecks of glitz.

  Rouge Rite is a berry red definitely a gorgeous girly hue.

  Safety Pin is a platinum foil.

Tartan Punk is a classic red crème. The color is not only going to look stunning in the fall but for the holidays as well. I am not a huge fan of red polish as I feel like it’s too old for me, but this one I’m kind of lusting over.

Flair is Focus’ metallic counterpart that offers the fall glow we all desire once the days get duller. Seriously Zoya knows how to make a 90 degree day feel like the middle of fall.
  Ember is a glitzy classic red

Aggie goes for the gold with a touch of blue and green. 

Cinnamon is a stunning metallic brown and would make for a perfect accent nail.

  Estelle takes blue to a whole new level. Cobalt glitz and glam I love it pair with Sia as an accent nail.

  Giada is a deep purple.

Tris is my favorite in this collection it’s a grayish green metallic and very unique in color.
