We love halloween and doing fun (somewhat easy) crafts with the kids to get in the spirit of the season. Each year we like to try new decorations and update any favorites from years past. It’s a great way to get everybody involved and let creativity take over. Here are the decorations we did in hopes that you can enjoy them too!
Candy Corn Wreath: The idea is to upcycle an old wreath with spray paint in candy corn colors. We especially love how it looks against the bright blue door.
Haunted Bar Cart: The Every Girl shares an easy way to spook your home with a haunted bar cart. The biggest task is spray painting dryer flowers and an old vase. Add black candles, halloween candy, some goulish liquor bottles and voila!
Glam Pumpkin: A bedazzled pumpkin is such a great alternative to carving one. Love the idea of painting it black and then adding the glam. Best part is you can find sticky jewels!
Cute Lanterns: Light up your front step with these halloween decorated jars. Just paint the inside fall colors and print cutouts that you then tape to the outside.
Perfect Pairings is a series where we ask our favorite bloggers to pair their favorite Scotch Naturals polishes with their favorite outfits. This week we are thrilled to have the founder of Bronzer Bunny, Joyce, discuss with us about what she’s wearing as she transitions into fall; beauty products included!
I’m a girl who always loves being warm, and my mind is nearly always on summer. Due to an extended work trip to the Bay Area, I’m still totally thinking summer to fall transition in my fashion and beauty choices.
Canal St Daisy just screams summer to me – the perfect shade to dress up or down all season. I’ve paired this for a casual day around town with denim shorts from and my favorite drapey tank. Throw on a bit of sparkle, Kiehl’s microblur, and a bit of glory cream blush, and I’m ready to hit the beach or brunch.

Neat is the perfect workday neutral. A bit peach, a bit pink, but it really just goes with everything. I especially love it with this pleated skirt and delicate jersey tee. It goes perfectly with a statement necklace, a bright pinky-red lip and an even complexion. Throw on an edgy jacket or cardigan, and it’s perfect for when the sun goes down.

Velvet Kilt, a long sleeve silky blouse, and a cute textured pencil skirt totally takes me into fall. I love throwing on my much loved leather sleeved field jacket with this dark so purple it’s nearly black shade. Along with some contoured cheekbones, liquid liner, and almost duo chrome purple shadow, I’d say I’m ready for a fall night out!

Now that I’m heading home to a real fall season in Chicago, I’ll be sure to throw in some tights & fun jackets… and you can bet I’ll be wearing a bit of Canal St Daisy on my fingers all winter!
It’s no secret that we love toxic free and eco-friendly brands, especially when it comes to make up products and these days brands are offering natural ways to achieve the latest trends in beauty. Below includes our favorites for fall and how to get each look without the worry of any nasty chemicals.
Wine stained lips is a classic look that adds just enough color to your face and can go easily from day to night. All you need is Ilia’s Arabian Knight Tinted Lip Conditioner, which is the perfect blend of burgundy and velvet. Add a bit of Kaer Weis Foundation to even out your skin while moisturizing it. Perfekt’s Lash Gel enhances, lengthens and darkens your eye lashes. Complete the look with our Bitter N Twisted, which is a brooding black cherry creme lacquer.
Metallic accents are a huge beauty trend for fall. Add the perfect amount of shimmer to your eyelids with Tarte’s Neutral Eyeshadow and frame your face with Perfekt’s Brow Gel. A nude lip gloss like Ilia’ Peek A Boo is subtle yet offers just enough shine. Cover any blemishes and brighten your skin with the all in one Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream by Jane Iredale. Compliment this shimmery, glowing look with our Velvet Kilt, the deep mysterious purple creme lacquer.
