The first time I wrote this post was four years ago in high school for my school’s newspaper and my monthly fashion column which is crazy and is one of the reasons it means so much to me.
Take a second to realize all that you have and for those that are truly there and be thankful for little things we take for granted everyday. Tell the people you love how much you love them because if this year has taught me and my family anything its that you never know when if it’ll be the last time. So make sure to use up every hour of the 24 you are given daily to spend them doing what you love, with who you love. Do NOT let them go to waste.
We online shop (in my case, almost every day) all the time. So why not give back by buying things you need/want that! Remember that no donation is small! So thank you to all these brand who have so generously created products and are donating proceeds to help advance the cure and spread awareness for Breast Cancer.
I’ve been getting several requests to do hauls on my purchases so I figured I’d test it out with some of my purchases on my Insta Stories (which is EXTREMELY flattering), so I did. If you’re here from Instagram, hi!! If not follow me @carolinaarango or click here. I linked EVERYTHING I ordered below if you’re interested! Let me know what your thoughts were on the haul!!
There is nothing like a good cross-body; super easy to wear almost anywhere! When it comes to big bags, I hoard and become Mary Poppins, but when I switch over to a tinier purse on the weekends, I take along my essentials ONLY! So to see what I carry 99% of the time, continue reading!
You can shop everything in this bag at the end of the post!
An easy transition into fall is by changing up your usual nail and/or lip color. Here are some of my favorites that are essential for the fall season.
Lips: I find it essential to have a dark, berry colored lip as well as a mauvy, nude. Finding the perfect fall lip varies on your complexion so head over to your nearest beauty department store to test out different shades for yourself. Both of my favorite fall lipsticks happen to be from Bobbi Brown. Below are swatches of the two.

Nails: The easiest way to get into the fall atmosphere is through your manicure. Here are some polishes that suit almost every skin tone and are perfect for the autumn months.

October is the month where I truly feel a transition into fall. I pull out my boots, paint my nails dark colors, and light fall scented candles. Here are some items I’m obsessing over this fall.
