Self-Care Products – My Fall Favorites
Fall is my very favorite season of the year. The cooler weather, the beautiful changing leaves and fall traditions like pumpkin spice lattes, festivals and cozy fashion trends. This fall is looking different but that doesn’t mean you should forget to incorporate your favorites into your fall activities. This includes your self-care routine. Self-care is so much more than getting to go to the grocery store alone; true self-care is when you get to reset, refresh and feel healthier inside and out.
Today I am sharing some of my very favorite self-care products – fall style! All of these items help me feel refreshed and ready for a great new season, even during this challenging time. The days are busy right now with school and other activities gearing up but all of these featured items can easily be brought into your routine and help you find a little pampering and wellness to help you be a better, more rested and refreshed YOU!
A Hair Color Refresh With e-Salon
I don’t know about you but my hair really got the short straw when it came to upkeep during the last six months. I do not color my hair often but when I do, I want a color that complements my skin tone and natural accents in my hair. When I first heard about e-Salon I had a feeling it would be a system I would continue to use. Now, I know some of you are shaking your head because coloring your hair at home can be a BIG mistake but honestly, e-Salon has the system down and this is a great alternative to the traditional box dyes available at the store.
No head of hair is the same so e-Salon creates a made-to-order, custom hair color just for you. To get started you simply visit their website and register. Answer questions about your current hair status – color (natural/dyed), length, and type of hair. You can also upload photos to allow for your personal colorist to see the REAL hair they are working with when creating the dye. You will then select the color goal you would love to achieve. Your personal colorist will consider hair color goals, recent photos, your profile, and your hair history. Then they formulate a color that’s just for you!
This is my before and after and while there isn’t a HUGE difference in the color, the end result was exactly what I was hoping for. My color was a Pearl Copper. I LOVE the pearl look. So shiny! And the copper is great for fall. My personal colorist formulated a shade exactly to depth of color and hair tone that I wanted. There is no premixed stuff with e-Salon, it made-to-order and never mass produced, and creates less waste – making it sustainable and better for the environment. Love that! Plus it is delivered right to your door with all of the items needed to achieve that great color refresh!
I am feeling refreshed and updated for fall and excited to continue using e-Salon for all of my hair coloring needs!

Okay, let’s talk about it. Our hands and feet…yes, those neglected things attached to our body. Just like my hair, my hands and feet have been neglected. UGH!! While it is time to start packing up the flip flops it is also time to consider a little self-care for your feet and hands. Maybe going to get a pedi and mani is not in your schedule for awhile but that doesn’t mean you cannot treat yourself at home!

Glam Up With Grande Cosmetics Lip Plumping Gloss
I wasn’t sure I really needed this Lip Plumping Gloss but after one application, I was sold and it immediately went into my purse for daily use. I am not a dramatic make-up kind of gal so a nice gloss is always a must have for me. However, the additional plump gives me a quick glam look that I am really digging this fall!
Grande Cosmetics Lip Plumper is a high gloss and volumizing lip plumper that is packed with hyaluronic acid for long-lasting hydrating results. In just 3 to 5 minutes after use, you’ll notice more voluminous lips and with continued use twice a day for 30 days, you’ll see an increase in overall lip volume. Unlike other plumpers, there is no stinging and it’s cruelty-free too. When I use this gloss I do feel a slight tingle but nothing that is alarming. The applicator is easy to clean which makes it perfect to use over other lip products, like your normal lipstick.

Keeping It Clean With Born Basic Hand Sanitizer
Hand Sanitizer is a new accessory but the challenge is finding one that has the sanitizing benefits we need but is safe to use for the whole family. Self-care also means staying healthy and in the current state of our society having the proper items to stay healthy while you are enjoying time at your favorite fall activities and traditions is so important.
Born Basic was “born” from the desire to accomplish a very basic goal. And that’s making an everyday product readily available for the everyday person. Born Basic Hand sanitizer glides on easily and does not leave a sticky residue, or have a strong alcohol smell. It is 62% alcohol instead of 70% alcohol or 65% alcohol which means it is more moisturizing with less alcohol content. BUT it still effectively kills germs per FDA guidelines.
Born Basic’s advanced and improved formula is better than ever and is available in 3-ounce, 16.9-ounce, and 33-ounce bottles at a very affordable price point (ranging from $1.99 to $5.99). Vitamin E and aloe help soothe hands, and it’s easily dispensable. There are fun cap colors on select features, plus an airtight cap with popable feature. Make sure you add Born Basic Hand Sanitizer to your self-care routine!

Cozy Up With A Fool’s Paradise from Robyn Williams
If you have been following me, you know that I love to read. It is part of my self-care, finding a great book, some quiet space and a cozy blanket sounds like heaven to me! Instant refresh and relax! I am always looking for new books to add to my reading list so when I heard about A Fool’s Paradise by Robyn Williams I knew it would be a perfect book for me. A Fool’s Paradise is next on my must read list and I cannot wait to jump into this riveting page turner.
Robyn Williams’ A Fool’s Paradise melds passion, suspense and the supernatural as Dr. Aaryn Jamison, one of the nation’s most prominent African American physicians, meets Jayson Denali, internationally acclaimed Academy award-winning actor. The characters’ stories of growing up poor, becoming self-aware survivors, trusting in mentors along the way and then strangely falling for them are so relatable, one becomes an unwitting passenger on the tumultuous journey borne between this book’s two covers.
A Fool’s Paradise is a provocative and imaginative tale with a host of memorable characters in a relentless quest for love, fulfillment, fame and fortune. This is a suspenseful, romantic, unpredictable, and at times, a very chilling read. I cannot wait to share my full review of A Fool’s Paradise when I complete this book!
