Tip Tuesday: 09/27/2016 Fall Finds


Fall is here in New England and I am fully embracing the cooler weather, heartier crops, and cozy flannels!  With only 6 days into the official fall season, I have already picked my first fall apple, made a giant pot of chili for football watching, and buttoned up my first flannel shirt.  While I am definitely a  summer girl at heart, nothing beats fall in New England,  between the hayrides, pumpkin spice everything,  adorable boots, and comforting crisps and crumbles, I am all about the fall season.  There are a few of my latest obsessions this season!

  • Run Fast. Eat Slow.
    • Even if you aren’t an Olympic gold medal runner like Shalane Flanagan, it is so easy to appreciate a cookbook that places a strong value on the nutritional aspects of food, rather than the fad diets, low carb, and crazy diet trends.  Co-author Elyse Kopecky, who is also buddies with Shalane showcases whole foods with a sprinkling of personal stories and nutritional advice for any fitness junkie.  I have been addicted to the super hero muffins as a post run refuel during my half marathon training.
  • Brook Dorman Nautical Knot Ring and Russian Amazonite Necklace
    • I am a girl that loves to accessorize, and I love Chad’s sister in law for creating one of kind handmade pieces that I can gawk over (and borrow!).  Her shop Brook Dorman Jewelry  has become my new favorite etsy find, everything down to her adorable packaging is  something to obsess over.  By using specific crystals and gemstones, each piece of jewelry has a different property.  The Russian Amazonite Necklace is one of my favorites, known as the stone of truth, communication and trust, associated with the throat chakra it is believed to be beneficial to communication.  I also love her nautical knot ring (shown above) because it literally goes with just about anything in my fall wardrobe and is unlike anything I would ever find a a conventional jewelry store.  Whether you believe in the powers of the various stones, one thing can be certain…her jewelry is CUTE!
  • Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Roobios Tea
    • On my occasional night off, one of favorite things to do is snuggle in on the couch with my flannel PJ’s, candles lit and fall TV with some yummy warm tea in hand.  This tea tastes just like fall with rich notes of pumpkin and nutmeg.  Much healthier than digging into a pumpkin treat, I have found myself craving this naturally sweet tea both morning and night.
  • American Horror Story: Roanoke
    • What is fall without binge worthy TV?  While I am still waiting for some of my favorite series to make their fall debut, I am already hooked on the latest American Horror Story!  I definitely don’t recommend watching this season alone.  If you are anything like me, you have anxiously waited to see what this season could possibly be about based off of the two dozen promos that have been tempting viewers all year.  Ryan Murphy has gotten me hooked again, next Wednesday cannot come soon enough!
  • Essie Gel Couture
    • I am currently on the “Christmas is approaching budget” which means regular mani-pedi’s are far from my to-do list which is why I love the new gel couture collection from Essie.  Lasting over 10 days is quite impressive for me, especially since I am always washing my hands at work.  What I love most about this polish is the quick dry sans UV light, I am way to impatient and always end up with smudged fingers while waiting to my nails to dry and this polish dries very quickly.  I am currently wearing the “sheer fantasy” but “surrounded by studs” is on my radar.
