Fall To Do List…

The Subtle Statement | Fall To Do List

  1. Go to a pumpkin patch. Pumpkins, crisp air, & apple cider make for a perfect Fall day
  2. Throw a Pumpkin Decorating Soiree. Complete with rhinestones, sequins, paint & Modge Podge
  3. Apple picking. Get your bake on with apple pie, caramel apples & homemade apple sauce
  4. Fall foliage. (Central Park is tdf this time of year)
  5. Fall Brunch. This apple cider mimosa & doughnut themed brunch is super cute
  6. Cozy bonfires. Friends, s’mores & pumpkin beer
  7. Football games & tailgating
  8. Oktoberfest
  9. Cozy Knits. Layer on the cable knits, scarves & socks.
  10. Dark Polish. I can’t get enough of deep dark hues during the Fall
  11. Haunted Houses.
  12. Scary Movies. (or Hocus Pocus, it’s my fave!)
  13. Make homemade pumpkin butter
  14. Pumpkin Everything. From PSL, to pie, doughnuts or your favorite dessert sub pumpkin in

The Mess-Free Manicure

Key to a Mess-Free Manicure I love sporting deep hues during the Winter months (right now I’m loving navy.) Unfortunately, they aren’t the easiest to apply. This Pinterest found beauty tip is key for a fool-proof manicure in just minutes.

  1. Using a Q-tip, apply Aquaphor (a must-have multifunctional healing ointment) around each nail, making sure not to get the lotion on your actual nail
  2. Apply base coat, polish and top coat (letting each coat dry in between)
  3. Once dry, rub in the Aquaphor onto cuticles

Key to a Mess-Free Manicure The end result: A mess-free manicure (no need to spend time on touch-ups!)
