Living in Texas, the transition from summer to fall seems to take forever. Somewhere between the beginning of football season and sipping on pumpkin spice lattes in 100 degree heat, fall manages to finally arrive.

Once fall rolls around, I start to take advantage of the cooler temperatures and second day hairstyles. Warm summer temperatures usually mean I’m throwing my hair up in a messy bun, but fall gives my hair a workable texture that allows for braids and waves that don’t fall flat. This casual side braid tutorial works on shorter lengths, and it’s a perfect summer style because it keeps hair off of your face! If you’re in a climate where you can enjoy cooler fall temperatures, embrace your second day hair texture and lightly curl a few strands for some added waves.

How To Find Your Perfect Nude Lipstick

I used to think that it was tough to find my perfect red lipstick, but when I started my search for the right nude shade for my skin, I was at a loss. While a shade can certainly look like the right color for my skin, it turned out that the texture and color makeup would be all wrong. So after enlisting the assistance of a professional, I was able to narrow down my search to find one of those ‘my lips, but better’ shades. If you’re looking to find a great nude lipstick for your skin tone, here are some good places to start…

For fairer skinned gals, it’s best to go with a nude lipstick that contains peach or pink—it will complement the color of your lips and prevent you from looking washed out.

Airport Style For A Chic Day Of Travel

Whether you are flying over Labor Day weekend, jet setting off on an end of summer vacation, or traveling by plane to head off to school there are a variety of reasons for flight in the coming months. Many people become stressed out at the thought of flying-you may have to create a packing list, get your home business finished before take off, and mentally prepare yourself for your flight. If you are a busy body it is common to miss one little detail-planning what you will be wearing once they are in the air! You might think this is a tiny detail but for any fashionista airport style is just as important as any other event. There are plenty of ways to look chic and fashionable without leaving the house in your favorite sweatsuit.

1. 3.1 Phillip Lim Kite Back Tank | 2. Etro Printed Silk Maxi Skirt | 3. Kooringal Fedora | 4. Sole Society Boho Wrap Bracelets | 5. Go Pro | 6. Neutrogena Sheertouch Sunscreen | 7. Tory Burch Miller Sandal |  8. Six Eleven Mini MC Duffle Bag | 9. Acne Studios Oversized Cardigan | 10. Easy Square Sunglasses

For anyone going on a tropical excursion dressing the part while you travel is a great way to get into the spirit. By wearing a loose fitting tank and a colored maxi skirt you look beachy, colorful, and ready to hit the sand when you land at your location. Keep your entire color scheme light and your pieces flowy. Wearing breathable clothing during a flight is great since you never know when it is going to get stuffy mid-flight.

What To Buy At Victoria’s Secret Before School Starts

This fall, I’ll be entering my fifth and final year of college. So trust me when I say when attending a university, you’re likely to see a lot of Victoria’s Secret outfits and accessories!

Summer-Into-Fall Essentials For Your Feet

Summer is the time to temporarily break away from wearing your collection of riding boots, combat boots and snow boots on a regular basis. You have the freedom of exploring different fashion trends in all sorts of shoe styles, heel heights, prints and materials. Now that the season is slowly coming to an end and fall weather approaches, you might want to consider buying shoes that are optimal for both seasons’ wear. Loafers and moccasins, buckled platforms and booties, animal print shoes and jellies compliment your wardrobe during this time of the year and when warm sunny days are limited to a few times a week if not a month.

1. Sole Society Celia Loafer, $59.95

Plaid is a great patterned print for jackets, pants, skirts, dresses and shoes. These loafers have a wardrobe life span that will last year after year, with lots of casual and dressy options to work with. For example, style them with a little black dress in the heat of summer. Alternatively, when things start cooling down in the fall, pair them with black jeans and a waffle Henley shirt.

9 Ways To Stop Overspending—For Good

If you are like me, then shopping constitutes as your therapy, your cardio and your stress relief all-in-one activity. It makes my heart happy but my bank account cry. I’ve needed a serious reality check regarding my shopping habits lately. I am the girl quick to spend $3.75 on a latte, go to the movies three nights a week and wants to go everywhere, but that just isn’t possible on my budget. These are the ways I’m making sure my spending habits are in check…

1. Analyze Your Spending/Saving Habits
The first thing I need to do is be realistic about my finances. What is coming in and what is going out? You can use an online service like Mint or create a chart to compare what you spend. Write down all of your essentials (food, rent, phone bill, Internet, loans, etc.) as well as what you would like to be spending money on/what you already are spending money on that isn’t necessary (manicures, clothing, Sunday brunch). Decide which items you can cut out of your budget and which are absolutely necessary in your life.

2. Leave It Behind
How do I really know that I want something? I leave it behind. I leave a store thinking, “No I don’t need this, I can always get it another day.” Then all I can do is think about that item. If you completely forget about it then you probably don’t care about it that much and can live without it. This is the best way to avoid a costly impulse buy.
