Need to get past the Autumn blues?

Fall Into Autumn Fall Bucket List
Create a Fall Bucket List.
Most of us don't look forward to this time of year when darkness sets in early, it can bring us the blues. So instead allowing dread to set in, brighten up your outlook by creating a bucket list or a to do list for the season. My mom would say: "Focus on what you  DO have NOT what you don't have" Here are 20 ideas from my personal Bucket List.

1. Pick out a pumpkin at a pumpkin patch and carve it.
2. Take in a show or visit a street fair
3. Sip some chai tea or apple cider with a friend/s
4. Plan a 3 day weekend
5. Find a pair of Uggs boots and a new scarf
6. Go on a hayride
7. Slow cook a pot of chili (crockpot)
8. Breakfast at Snooze
9. Pumpkin spice latte and a day at the museum
10. Celebrate 50 year anniversary of Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin
11. Get a massage/ facial
12. Take Fall foliage drive & go star gazing / watch the sunrise
13. Decorate the front door or porch
14. Get outside your comfort zone and go through a corn maze
15. Play a board game/puzzle at a your favorite coffee/tea shop
16. Paint outdoors (Plein Air)
17. Visit a winery
18. Go people watching at the mall on Halloween
19. Volunteer and Donate to a food bank
20. Start each day with a grateful / thankful heart

Autumn: The start of something new!

Fall Into Autumn 2016 The start of something new!

AUTUMN,
there is something so calming and romantic about this season.

There is a different kind of excitement as we began to think about the holiday season coming up. Our clothing changes, the foods we eat changes, maybe for some even your home decor changes. Autumn comes and goes so quickly here in Colorado, if you are not careful you'll miss the beauty of it all. Art has allowed me to travel and meet people at different stages in their life. As much as I love Fall, for some, it brings a low to their spirit; God knows I've been there, the holidays were not always fun. So this year, I wanted to share what I do take make this time of year special and exciting. Maybe, just maybe it will you out too! Come along on this FALL INTO AUTUMN journey with and re-discover the beauty of the season. Besides, how could you not Fall In Love with Autumn.

Pond's Cleansing Wipes review

Pond;s wet cleansing towelettes
I received a complimentary sample pack of Ponds Wet Cleansing towelette to testing from Influester. Inside the influenster box I also received a coupon for $1 off Pond's products at Target. The wipes are soft textured cloths with a light fresh scent.
Pond;s wet cleansing towelettes and pastel chalks
I have the opportunity to travel the country doing what I love and that is art.
I recently took the Pond's sample with me to Via Colori Houston. I was impressed how the wipes cleaned my face and hands of chalk residue.
The cloth wipes did not dry out my skin, the vitamin E did it's job.

Final Impression:
I would recommend Pond's wipes to friends and family. I do not where make up often, however, I would use the wipes to freshen up my face. I would use them again when traveling.
