Fresh For Fall: 12 New Beauty Products

{ Via: Vogue

Makeup and Skincare - I could play in those aisles all day. I guess one could say that I have a beauty habit. And I'm not mad about it. If you are like me, you want to know what is the newest and greatest when it comes to your own beauty regime. Here's a round up of some of best new products that have caught my eye for Fall. 


HERE: 12 New Products To Love

L'Oreal Paris X Balmain Lip Color
Finally something we can all afford from Balmain! Allure magazine says that these 12 matte shades are pretty darn good. Might be worth a try at only $14 with Free Shipping at
Barneys New York

Natura Bisse’s Inhibit High-Definition Patches
Single sheet masks are all the rage now. I have to say, they are not my favorites. Most of them are to wet and drip everywhere. These are not those. This is a weekly system that requires a time commitment of 3 hours. Inhibit High Definition Patches are  a patented technology of self-dissolving micro-cones that address specific areas to rejuvenate the skin with targeted precision.

Neiman Marcus

Maybelline Curvitude Liner
Don't you love products that make sense? The ergonomic handle on this little liner will give new life to your winged liner. Just let the brush do it! 

L'incroyable Blowdry Crème
New from Kérastase Paris. Like all of this brand's products, this creme is opulent. It is a shapable heat styling cream for normal to thick hair. It is said to provide for 3X faster flat ironing (vs no product), unparalleled shape memory, 96 HR extreme anti-frizz control and 450* thermo-protection. Sounds like a winner.

Rouge Dior Double Rouge
 Dior now makes it easy to color and highlight your lips at the same time. Inspired by professional makeup artistry, Double Rouge combines two makeup trends: matte and metal.  In a single application, it produces an ombré effect with a highly pigmented matte contour and a light-catching metal heart.

Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin Wrinkle Treatment No 25
I love Bobbi's simple approach to beauty and skincare. This new product for fighting the look of aging appears to be quite promising. Just read the reviews!  It is a comprehensive, multi-action solution for wrinkles and loss of firmness that addresses visible signs of aging. The result is a visibly smoother, more lifted look. I'll take that!
Bobbi Brown 

Phyto Pigments Makeup Collection
Want to switch to "clean" beauty products? This is a great place to start. Under Gwyneth Paltrow’s creative leadership, Juice Beauty’s scientists have developed this new collection of high performance makeup made with certified organic ingredients. The collection is quite lovely with the prettiest colors.

BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation 
New to bareMinerals. The luxuriously creamy liquid contains bamboo stem extract for a naturally matte, soft focus finish, while papaya enzymes gently improve skin's texture both immediately and over time. With good-for-skin ingredients that won't clog pores, barePRO® Performance Wear Liquid Foundation is Makeup "So Pure You Can Sleep in It." And though I haven't tried this new product yet, I use the Complexion Rescue daily, and love it. If you aren't using a brush to apply your foundation, you should be. bareMinerals brushes are fabulous!
Bare Minerals

Christian Louboutin Eye Amplifiers Collection
" The Louboutin collection of expert eye products is designed to provide definition to a woman’s eyes and to amplify the essence of her gaze. " The packaging is as beautiful as his shoes, with price tags to match. Harpers Bazaar loves the lash lacquer, calling it "decadent, inky, and black." The only caveat is, even after all of the buildable volume and dramatic length, you will still have to use a curler.

Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy
There's so much to like about this product. For me, it's all about the farm-grown, hand-picked botanicals, like Cupuacu butter beads from the Amazon rainforest. Then there is a powerful complex of non-GMO fermented soy, mistletoe and Japanese bloodgrass combined with Tsubaki and meadowfoam seed oils that plump and hydrate the skin.  The GreenEnvy™ honey is full of potent natural antioxidants and is made only by bees that live on their farm and pollinate the Echinacea GreenEnvy flowers.  It's a beauty of a product! I love the delivery system, too.

Henri Bendel Perfume Mists
Bendel's introduces a brand new line of flirty fragrances. With scent names like Lavender and Cotton, Amber and Casis, Vanilla and Sandalwood, Eucalyptus and Sea Salt, and Jasmine and Bergamot, there is something for every Bendel Girl. Petite bottles at affordable prices. You may just want to try more than one. 
Henri Bendel

Glossier Body Hero Duo
This is something I plan to try this Fall and Winter. The affordable duo works together to give you clean and moisturized skin all day long. Natural oils like Coconut, Sunflower Seed, and Grapeseed oils are combined with a Orange Blossom Neroli Blend for a soft baby-like scent.

When I saw this photo, I immediately could relate. This is how I feel with a broken leg. Maybe if I padded up myself with balloons, I could go outside and enjoy this Fall weather. No, wait, I can't get thru the door. Yes, folks, I am still on the mend, but that doesn't mean that I can't find humor in the situation! There's an elephant in the room, and its me. :)

Foodie Friday: The Best Sweet & Savory Pumpkin Recipes

{ Via: Williams Sonoma }

Have you heard a bit of talk about people overdosing on Pumpkin everything? How is that even possible? I can't get enough of it this time of year.  Pumpkin spice is a scent and flavor that is always comforting. But why stop at pie? Pumpkins play well with both sweet and savory dishes.  This roundup includes it all.

HERE:  17 Perfect Pumpkin Recipes

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Latte
I don't drink Coffee or milk, and I haven't had oatmeal in years. Things are going to change this Fall! As Tieghan says: "think of a pumpkin spice latte, add some oatmeal, whipped cream + granola and you'll have this delicious Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Latte!" I'm in.

Spiced Pumpkin Soup
Don't worry, the spices are balanced with lemon juice and two kinds of apples. It should be a beautiful blend of flavors.

Parmesan Pumpkin Fritters
These are said to be easy, fail proof and only take 20 minutes to prepare. What an unique and unexpected appetizer for any Fall party!

Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie with Dulce de Leche Walnut Streusel
Pumpkin pie happens to bore me a little. This recipe just might change up my thoughts on a classic pie. The Dulce de Leche puts this pie over the top.

Vegan Ravioli With Pumpkin And Ricotta
Pretty pasta pillows are filled with sweet and spicy pumpkin filling and tangy ricotta cheese. I bet these are as good as they look.

Pumpkin Chicken Chili
Oh this needs to happen STAT! Its easy and just perfect for tailgating, too! Click to see an easy to follow video.

Easy Pumpkin Bread Rolls
Are these not the cutest? The secret to these perfectly formed rolls is shaping them before baking. Fresh pumpkin makes them super light and fluffy. How fun!

Pumpkin Magic Bars
If you ever have made Seven Layer Bars before, you know how ooey and gooey they are. With added apples and pumpkin, you can expect these to be fabulous.

Pumpkin and Feta Fritters with Smoked Salmon
Isn't this a unique recipe? It's a wonderful combination of textures and flavors. The green that you see? That's smashed avocados and arugula. Quite a sophisticated dish.

Pumpkin Risotto with Goat Cheese & Dried Cranberries
Fall comfort food! The process is really very easy, you just have to babysit the rice a little. With some loving care, this will be one elegant week night meal!
Platings and Pairings

 Pumpkin Gratin With Comté Cheese
This recipe had me at Roasted pumpkin with rosemary and garlic. Toss in some melted cheese and I'm yours.

Spiced Pumpkin Fritters With Dulce De Leche  Cream
The perfect thing to go with your Pumpkin Spice Latte this season.
Gourmet Traveller

Cheese Fondue Stuffed Roasted Pumpkin
I love a good fondue any time of year. But these Fall colors will give your cocktail party life! 

Pumpkin Lasagna with Fontina
Combining yellow squash, zucchini and pumpkin, the dish comes together quickly when you use William-Sonoma's own ready to use pasta sauce. Looks so yummy!
Williams Sonoma

Lucky Pumpkin Soup
How can you go wrong with a recipe that's earthy, wholesome and brings you good luck? Imagine pouring this creamy soup over crème fraîche that has been generously sprinkled with a parsley and pancetta ‘crumble.’

No Bake Triple Layer Pumpkin Pie
One look and I knew that my family would absolutely love this recipe. The no bake part is appealing, too. 
Art And The Kitchen

Pumpkin White Russian
You knew that I had to throw in at least one chic cocktail. These look like Fall in a glass, Cheers!

Sip. Savor. Repeat. Shop the NEW Wine & Cheese Collection from Le Creuset!

There are a few wedding "rules" that even a modern bride still will like to follow. Blending something old, something new, and something blue into your special day, isn't always easy.
