Lets switch gears and get into the fall mood! Here are a few things that pop into my head when I think of fall.

You can’t start off fall without a lovely fall candle! I’ll be honest, I like to light candles all year round, but it isn’t until the fall where I really get that itch to fill my entire house with the aroma and ambiance of candles. It gives your space such a warm and cozy feel. My absolute favourite fall candle is Sweater Weather from Bath and Body Works. It’s a light fresh scent; every time I light this candle I just think about crunchy leaves and cozy sweaters!

This has to be my favourite thing about transitioning into the fall. You go from bright and summery colours, to deep and bold colours. Adding a deep lip colour immediately changes your look to sexy and sophisticated. It’s an easy way to add a little flare to your look. It is also such a universal look that anyone can pull off. Whether your skin is light or dark, everyone can rock a bold berry lip.

It’s time to get comfy and cozy with oversized sweaters! I love to cuddle up in my sweater on those chilly fall nights. It is a must have piece that looks adorable on everyone. You can just throw one on and head out the door; no effort needed and you always manage to look great! Plus, they do a great job of hiding those huge comfort meals we start eating this time of year. Who doesn’t like that?

Keeping up a pedicure all summer long can be a daunting task. Not worry, because fall calls for boots! Time to switch out those open toed shoes to comfy boots. Knee-highs, booties, wedges, etc. you name it, I love my boots! There is a style out there to suit each and every one. Not to mention, an oversized sweater just isn’t complete without a pair of boots to match.

This is a great accessory to add to your fall look. Whatever way you style them they always add that touch of warmth to an outfit. Blanket scarves are specifically great because you can use them as blankets! Think about those chilly days in the office where you can just take your chic accessory and use it to keep warm. It’s a win-win!

Those are my top 5 must-haves to transition into fall. What are your fall essentials?

If any of you buy candles then you know that at the end of your candle’s life, you’ll be left with a glass jar filled with about 1/2” of wax that can’t be lit anymore. Instead of throwing the jar away, why not repurpose it to make something new! These jars are perfect to use for any kind of storage and you can even customize it with different designs to match your décor. Follow these steps to find out how to get that left over wax out and reuse the jars!


– Candle (3 wick candle from bath and body works)

– Pot

– Water

– Rubbing Alcohol

– Filling


  1. Fill a pot with water.
  2. Once the water has boiled, place the bottom portion of the candle jar in the water and swirl around to loosen the wax around the edges.
  3. The wax will slowly start to lift off the bottom and will slip right out! Remove the wax and wicks, and place on a paper towel to cool down before disposal. Be careful because it will be hot!
  4. Wipe the jar with rubbing alcohol to take off any remaining gunk. Go over it with Windex to really get that glass to sparkle!
  5. Fill about 2/3 of the jar with a filling of your choice. I usually opt for clear beads because I like more of a minimalist look, but you can go with what ever suits your needs. Then stick in your brushes and you’re good to go!

There you have it; an easy way to repurpose those candle jars you have lying around. I also use these jars to store cotton balls, cotton swabs, etc. They are great for all kinds of storage! You can always add details to the jar itself to make it a little more creative, or keep it as is for a simple clean look! Hope you enjoyed!
