The Autumnal Fairy's Guide To Fall Beauty

The Autumnal Fairy has returned,

just as she always does this time of year,

after flittering about the globe

in a flurry of sparkly lights,

orange and black striped stockings,

with her corset full of leaves,

in search of the most magical finds of the season!

The Autumnal Fairy's Faves:

When you're bathing, quite literally, in a forest stream, you want to cleanse your gorgeous body with something gentle and, of course be very kind to your outdoor home. What to do? Indulge in Acure Organics Pumpkin + Calendula Soap. There's this whole amazing new soap line from them that are cold pressed, argan oil based, certified organic, and absolute silk on your skin! If you've avoided soaps because they are drying, you've gotta check these out: Unlike traditionally milled soaps which are heated then poured into molds to cool quickly, causing them to harden fast which depletes moisture (then salt gets added to further dry them out!), these are cold pressed and dried over a 6-week period to preserve complete and potent lipids, and healthy fatty acids to be retained. Your skin will adore you! They come in six mouth watering scents and last quite a long time...get on this!

With the weather changing and drier air moving in, the mane needs an infusion of lush. Switch from a lighter potion to Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell Conditioner. Hair just drinks this in, from it's heavenly buttered almond scent to its lustrous sheen, leaving tresses glossy, manageable, and seriously prepared for a seasonal shift.

For delicate hands that cast sensuous spells... No Miss One Coat Nail Polish. For the tiny price tag, they are a animal-friendly, free-of-nasty-chemicals steal.  With over 100 delirious colors to choose from, this season's standouts are surely Georgetown Ginger, Punta Gorda Pecan, and Tamarac Tangerine.

Because autumn kisses are sweet and spicy, Vapour Organics Siren Lipstick luscious lipsticks are so necessary. They contain rose buds, camilla oil, myrrh, lemon balm, pomegranate, and jojoba oil, and the colors are drop dead gorgeous. Fall faves? The rich, bitten berry of Knockout, the chocolatey deliciousness of Dare, and, Tempest, a deep burnt Autumn orange described as "feisty!"

Above all, a Faerie loves glitter! It comes naturally, of course, from a clean, plant-based diet and lots of positive vibrations, but even mystical mamas want some extra cosmic sparkle...thank the stars for Orglamix, a vegan mineral makeup line with so many stunning glitters to chose from your wings will be all aflutter trying to decide! They have dazzling shades you can layer on top of their gorgeous shadows, to lips, body...anywhere...

And do pick up their Black Magic Shadow for some serious Samhain smolder...

Once inside your tree-cottage, you'll want to stock up on all your Kitchen Witch essentials, for bountiful harvest goodies, cozy suppers, and bewitching brews. Bookmark it, and the Guide To Choosing Purrfect Produce to have on hand at the market. We have soooo many amazing things to conjure up together!

And...don't even think of heading into a season change before first arming yourself with Contessa's Protective Blend, the best guard against sniffles, viruses, and general ickyness, both internally and as a topical antimicrobial potion.

Be well, my Fireflies...

Get out there and spread that sparkle everywhere,

because you are so very beautiful.
