Fall Decor Ideas To Celebrate The Season


We can finally see, and feel, that fall is very much here. With the temperatures beginning to drop, we can begin to see the leaves changing into hues of jewel colored combinations with dazzling yellow, orange, red, purple, green, and brown. This makes a perfect backdrop for fall décor and it’s easier then you think to add the charm of the season to your home.

Of course not only does a fall décor change celebrate the “harvest” season, with slight changes and a little imagination these décor recommendations can easily take you from Halloween to Thanksgiving. For example now that Halloween is over, keep your pumpkin hues but change up the black. And for Thanksgiving, you may want to opt for more natural elements like corn and squash. Fortunately for us, the hues for fall's holidays are in the same décor family.


When it comes to seasonal décor, we always like to begin outside. A fall inspired wreath and topiary, like the ones picture here, set the tone. We also like to change our greeting mat. For us, it’s a nice introduction when friends and family visit. Keep in mind not to overdue it, as a little goes a long way when it comes to the hues of fall.


Moving to the inside of your home, adding a beautiful vase filled with harvest colored gourds, or willow spheres, makes a lovely touch to the foyer table. Begin the backdrop with a jute runner and add a few fall leaves to pull the look together.


We do a lot of entertaining throughout the fall and winter, often opting to host small dinner parties. The dining room table is very simple give a seasonal change. Again using a runner, this one being fall inspired, you begin your backdrop. We found these lanterns and filled the bottom third with miniature pumpkins, changed our hurricane vase and added brass chargers.



For the living room -- where most people spend the majority of their time relaxing -- changing pillows, throws and candles make the room ready for a fall celebration. Taking inspiration from nature, add a few well-chosen pops of color mixed in with the neutrals of the season like apricot and brown. All of the suggested items were found at T.J. Maxx and were a fraction of the price of department stores -- proving that luxury does not need to cost a fortune.

Fall Cleaning Tips For Your Precious Gems


There is no doubt on days like today that Fall 2019 has arrived. While many of us think of “Spring Cleaning” as the time for cleaning everything from our closets to washing widows, you really should be doing a Fall Prep for winter and that prep should include your precious jewels. After all, holiday season will be upon is and you know that you’ll be wearing your sparkles at all of the season parties!

There is however, a proper way in which to clean your jewels and TME reached out to the experts at Ritani, who provided a few simple tips and tricks to clean your diamonds, and other gems, with ease and care. The best part about these tips is that you can employ these simple cleaning methods with regular household products.

Freshen Up: Baking Soda is a staple is every kitchen. Not only does baking soda make for tasty cookies and a fresh-smelling refrigerator, this versatile substance can also keep your ring clean. In fact, baking soda's mild, non-abrasive consistency makes it a great choice for cleaning all manner of metals and precious stones. For platinum rings, mix a dash of baking soda with water to create a simple cleaning solution. Rub along the band and around the setting, then use a lint-free cloth to wipe dry.

Minty Brilliance: Another common household item, toothpaste, also cleans engagement rings in a pinch. Take a bit of toothpaste -- the non-gel, chalky kind is best -- and apply it to a soft-bristled toothbrush. You might even want to invest in a child-size brush; they have smaller heads and softer bristles that are perfect for ring cleaning. Gently rub toothpaste along the band and around the setting with a soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse with water and it will look brand new!

A Deeper Clean: For an even deeper clean, simply squirt a bit of liquid dishwashing detergent on a toothbrush. Again, the small size and soft bristles of a child-size brush come in handy for ring cleaning. Add a tiny bit of warm water and scrub your stone and setting gently. Using dishwashing detergent and a small toothbrush, scrub your ring until it sparkles. Rinse with warm water and wipe dry.

Extra Shine: If you want to up the shine factor even further, clean your ring using one of the above methods. Then let the ring soak in a mixture of one part ammonia to three parts water for half an hour. Take the ring out and let it air dry to a bright sparkle.

Bring In The Professionals: If your ring has become really dirty over time, it may be best to visit your local jeweler. They will restore your ring to its true brilliance.

Our personal reminder is to check your gems. Often, we do not notice that a stone has loosened from its setting and from our personal experience, nothing is worse then losing a gem from a beloved piece!

Perfect Mini Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins




Fall just beckons for something pumpkin and I've been heeding the call. From Pumpkin Pecan Waffles for Sunday Brunch, to Pumpkin Soup warming up a rainy fall evening, and rounding out with these delicious mini treats for all the time in between. I think that it's safe to say that all pumpkin cravings have been satisfied. Probably my favorite out of the bunch are these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins. Three mini muffins equals one regular sized muffin, so it's easy to scratch that craving without feeling too guilty. These come together really easily, and you probably have the ingredients in your pantry. So, this weekend is a great time to whip up a batch.

Digressing for a moment. I'll share a not-so-secret secret. I have three major loves -- aside from my friends and family -- gardening, cooking, and all things related to beauty. Sadly, gardening is basically wrapped up for this season. However, I still have plenty of beauty products to test out and I find it incredibly relaxing to whip up something delicious on the weekends and then go treat myself to a little at-home spa treatment.




So in keeping with my pumpkin obsession, after making a batch of these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins may I suggest that you take some "me time" with a newly found favorite? Check out the NEW Wondergloss Pumpkin Latte Face Masque. Pumpkin is a helpful superfood for the skin and coffee helps blood to circulate. Mix them together and you get a creamy, antioxidant and enzyme-rich face treat. The Pumpkin Latte Masque ($50) smells delicious as it brings deep exfoliation and sloughing effects to dry, dull skin. Absolutely the perfect face treat after making the mini muffins! But first let's get to those muffins.





INGREDIENTS
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 - 15 ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. You can use mini muffin cup liners or coat muffin tins with cooking spray. I use the later because I absolutely detest paper around my muffins.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin puree, oil, and applesauce until smooth. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture slowly to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Add mini  chocolate chips.
  3. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups approximately 3/4 of the way full. (I've over-filled the tins and it isn't a pretty sight).
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes 6 dozen mini muffins.

Equipment that I use: Wilton 48 Cup Mini Muffin Tin, Thunder Group Disher Ice Cream Scoop, Kitchen Aid Mixer.




Don't be afraid to make this recipe your own. Add pecans or substitute the chocolate chips for raisins. You're only limited by your imagination with this recipe. I really hope that you enjoyed this post and that you take a little time to both, make these, and to treat yourself!

Fall Favorites That You Have To Try


Wow, did fall arrive today or what? It's a new season and so many new beauty products to try and to love! We've sorted through quite a few to find our favorites and hopefully yours! 




evolis Professional Style & Treat Dry Shampoo ($30) Created with 100% botanical actives to both style your hair and treat your scalp. This shampoo instantly absorbs excess oil while delivering their patented blend of FGF5 inhibitors. By blocking FGF5, the negative effects can be reversed, resulting in the restoration of hair density, promotion of new growth and the preservation of existing hair strands.  Ideal for all hair types, Style +Treat Dry Shampoo revives your hair style while lifting your roots for incredible volume and fullness.



Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum ($88) Vitamin C isn't new, but it definitely is having a strong resurgence in popularity. The Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum is an oil and fragrance-free serum that packs a whopping 20 percent concentration of vitamin C that deliver both instant and long-term results. A 10 percent concentration of AHAs joins the mix -- all working together to leave your skin firmer, smoother, and noticeably more glowy.



Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream ($30) This best-selling cream is getting a revamp, now reformulated to be entirely paraben-free. But don't worry, you won't be able to tell that your beloved moisturizer has changed -- it took Kiehl's scientists five years and more than 114 different versions to come up with this final formula that works!



Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation ($48 - available in 30 shades) A pearl extract in this medium-to-full coverage base helps reflect light to give your skin an instant glow, regardless of whether you're standing in front of a ring light or sitting under yellow-y office bulbs. The lightweight, moisturizing formula promises to stay put for up to 15 hours, keeping your skin looking flawless and feeling hydrated.



First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Barriair Cream ($30) As a general rule, creams promising to restore and calm your skin are usually, well, super thick and heavy. Not this newbie, which is packed with hard-working, skin-coddling ingredients, but it has an airy, whipped texture that feels more like a gel moisturizer than a heavy-hitting hydrator. There's hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin, colloidal oatmeal to soothe it, and ceramides and linoleic acid to help strengthen the skin barrier.




Kopari Coconut Detox Mask ($38) We think of this mask as a juice cleanse for our skin! Bentonite and kaolin clays go to town pulling impurities out of your pores, while coconut oil hydrates, and probiotics help keep the top layer of skin feeling balanced and looking fresh.




Giorgio Armani Beauty Power Fabric Foundation Balm ($64) A blend of waxes and oils gives this foundation formula its initial balm-like consistency, which, when smoothed over skin, transforms into a cream, and later, a powder. Made with 15 percent pigments, it packs a hefty punch of complete coverage and has a perfectly matte finish despite its creamy consistency.




Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer ($28 available in 22 shades) The latest addition to the brand's best-selling Ultra HD line, this cover-up doesn't need to be set with powder, thanks to the unique amino-acid coated pigments that immediately conform to your skin, staying put for up to 12 hours without caking or creasing.



Maybelline New York Snapscara ($6) Maybelline knows a thing or two about mascara, and their newest Snapscara formula is one of their best yet. The thin, flexible pigment tints your lashes and leaves them looking super glossy, but also adds a little thickness and lots of length.



Dior Lip Glow To The Max ($34) Dior Lip Glow To The Max is the same beloved Lip Glow, now with a yummy new look and a touch more pigment. In this new formula, the sheer, tinted balm is spiked with pigment — those are the candy-colored swirls you see in the bullet — to both hydrate your lips and leave them with a bit more of a tint than the original formula does. Take your pick from seven different shades, five with a dewy finish and two that leave behind a holographic sheen.



Tenoverten Rose Polish Remover ($14) What you won't find in this polish remover: acetone, parabens, or any unpleasant odors. What you will find: vitamin E, horsetail leaf extract, and aloe to help hydrate and strengthen your nails. Green beauty lovers should add this to their product stash, stat.

Fall Skincare Tips from the ‘Supermodels’ Facialist Ildi Pekar

This article first appeared on TME 11/10/16

We love when we get the opportunity to receive skincare tips from Ildi Pekar! With clients like Miranda Kerr, Lindsay Ellingson and Irina Shayk, Ildi is responsible for the faces of some of today’s most beautiful women … and rest assured that genes alone don’t keep these women looking flawless. So, who wouldn’t be over the moon when Ildi shares her secrets? We really luck out this time because along with Ildi’s top skincare tips, she’s shared her favorite Fall DIY Mask!

To kick off the transition to cooler weather skincare, Ildi points out that our diet is most important! During the summer we eat a lot of light foods including vegetables and fruits, which contain water so we are more hydrated. During the cooler months we feel a little more lethargic and it shows in your skin because we eat foods that are hot and heavy for comfort than light and refreshing during the summer months. This leads to a lack of hydration and that awful, uncomfortable dry skin.

How To Shift Your Skincare Routine:
  • Change to a milder cleanser
  • Avoid using harsh toners that can dry out your skin too much and cause irritation
  • Switch to a heavier moisturizer during the cooler months
  • This is the BEST time to get a Deep Cleansing Facial or peel; it keeps your skin soft and clean and helps treat the skin damage that occurred during the summer

How To Combat Breakouts:
  • A Deep Cleansing facial would keep your skin in check
  • Get your pores clean regularly to reduce white heads black heads and acne
  • Drink plenty of water or coconut water to keep your skin hydrated
  • Apply moisturizer twice daily to keep hydrated
  • Exfoliate your skin and increasing your fish oil intake will help as well



Ildi’s Favorite DIY Fall Beauty Mask:
  • 2/3 tbsp of organic honey 
  • 2/3 tbsp of plain organic yogurt

In a pot heat to room temperature. Spread thin layer on face neck and decollete. Leave on for 15/20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat skin dry.

Chantecaille Fall 2017 Save The Forest Eyeshadow Palette


Every minute, 50 acres of rain forest are destroyed, and two-dozen species become extinct every day. In the Brazilian Amazon, the world’s largest rain forest, deforestation rose in 2015 for the first time in nearly a decade, to nearly two million acres from August 2015 to July 2016.

We Need Our Forests To Keep Us Beautiful -- As the ‘lungs of our earth,’ our forests are the planet’s sources of oxygen and water, and act as agents to stabilize our climate. Chantecaille conservation focus for Fall 2017 is the crisis of our disappearing forests and the ripple effect it has on humans and animals, like gorillas, who depend on them for survival. Deforestation kills our globe’s natural green spaces to make way for relentless plantings of soy, palm oil and cattle grazing grounds. As the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions after fossil fuel burning, it causes 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions.


“When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.” - Dian Fossey

Missing In The Mist -- Gorillas are slowly losing their grasp on this earth as their natural habitats, the forests, are being destroyed by deforestation. Chantecaille's trip to the Congo in the winter of 2016 showed the brand firsthand that these kind, intelligent creatures, which are 98% identical to humans in their DNA, are the perfect symbol of a changing planet. Deforestation is slowly reaching their habitats in the Congo and in Uganda, as the earth is tilled for human production and consumption.


SAVE THE FOREST EYESHADOW PALETTE ($85) -- The four shades in the palette were inspired by the lush, natural beauty of Virunga National Park in the Congo, home to some of the last remaining gorillas on the planet. From the spectacular early morning mist that rolls through the forest to the vibrant golden light in the sky at daybreak, the overwhelming beauty of this densely forested oasis served as our muse this season. A portion of the proceeds from the Save The Forests Eye Shade Palette will benefit the Rainforest Alliance and its energized, impactful work in protecting our planet’s dwindling forests and the precious wildlife that depends on them.

DAWN: A golden brown
VOLCANO: A rich brown
MIST: A pale pink highlighter
BAMBOO: A deep olive green

The Chantecaille Fall 2017 Save The Forest Eyeshadow Palette is currently available for pre-order online at Chantecaille Beaute and Saks.
