Hello lovely people! As I sit here on a surprisingly uncharacteristic but welcome cloudly September day, I could not be more excited about the coming fall weather and the corresponding fall fashion. After all my endless talk of being impatient for summer so I could flounce in wafting and full skirted dresses, one would think I am a bit fickle. Well, to you I say, the best thing about the seasons is that they change. I tire of them quickly. I suppose I am quite fickle. But I'm ok with that :-)

Therefore, read on to find some of my favorite fall fashion picks this week. Imagine the crisp air, the smell of apple cider, the foliage people! The foliage! But what do I know about foliage, I live in LA...

Boatneck Dress $39.50 from Alloy
This dress is mighty nice. It feels like you could rock it in transitional weather then break it out again for winter holiday parties.

Cable Knit Tunic $34.50 from Alloy
I am a sucker for white sweaters. I don't know why. The simplicity of white just works for me with a big chunky knit. This one is a bit boho and I love it.

Shawl Cardigan $29.50 from Alloy
Love the bright blue. Love the snug fit. Love the double breasted button front. Yes, that will do nicely.

Melissa Oxford $34.50 from Alloy
This is one fall footwear trend I am hopping right on. The high heeled oxford. Its totally chic and interesting, and wont just jet out of style in about two seconds.

Ludlow Boot $39.50 from Alloy
These boots + bright leggings + anything on top = fall happy fun time

Cindy Crochet Tunic $34.50 from Delia's
This is perfect to throw on over jeans then grab a chunky sweater for later. Good transitional weather top

Printed Satin Dress $34.50 from Old Navy
I love this dress so much. So easy and forgiving, but totally put together. Plus the color combo is really sending me today.

So...... basically what I think I'm saying is, bring it on, Fall. Bring it on.

What's black and blue and Coenzyme Q10ed all over?

ME!! Sorry for the scant amount of posts folks. Soon after my last post, I took a softball to the face (yes, really) and although nothing broke, it did quite a number on me and I haven't been feeling quite so in the mood for beauty when every time I look in the mirror I have mistaken myself for a) a boxer b) an alien or c) a zombie. This week finds me more on the mend (finally!), no more swelling, cuts healing, and only a scant amount of black and blue left under my eyes :-) So I am finally in the mood to beautify a bit! Because doing any sort of facial anything is still sort of a moot point for another week, I turn my attention to the other areas of the physical self...

For sparkling white teeth
Nature's Gate Peppermint Whitening Toothpaste with Flouride $6.99

For feeling transported to some exotic locale whilst simply sudsing in your shower
Nature's Gate Asian Pear and Red Tea Body Wash $9.99

For the best smelling all day deep condition (I love this product and am picking up some more after work today)
Freeman Papaya and Sea Kelp Massive Moisture 3 Minute Conditioner $3.99

Just a few cheap and awesome products that make me smile thinking about them... More updates next week, as I am finally starting to feel like my old self again :-)

In the meantime, steer clear of flying softballs and load up on the CO Q10!!
