Items We’re FALLing For!
You may know that Fall is my favorite season. I love how it’s cool and crisp enough for sweaters but not quite freezing. I love seeing all the leaves changing colors but most of all I love getting ready for the holidays! Not to mention that both my hubby and I celebrate our birthdays in this great season. In this list of items we have something for everyone, so I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll like. Are you ready to see what products made our list? Let’s get to it!
What To Wear
Lamo’s Luxurious Moccasins
Slip into comfort with Lamo’s luxurious moccasins! Made with Australian Sheepskin lining. The hubby loves these Lamo Mens Harrison Moc moccasin. They are perfect for when you want to keep your feet warm & protected while being comfy at home this classic moccasin is an easy choice. I personally really like these Lamo Women’s Aussie Moc Moccasin. These moccasins are a modern take on the classic moccasin. They feature durable suede, come in a variety of colors, and are lined in super soft and plush faux fur.
Bundle up with The Comfy! One part oversized sweatshirt and one part ridiculously soft plush blanket, The Comfy is perfect for Fall, winter, or any season when you need some warmth and coziness. I have the original blanket sweatshirt and love how amazingly warm and cozy it is! The quality and craftsmanship are also right on point.
Cindy Karen’s Havana Faux-Leather Leggings
Sexy and sleek, Cindy Karen’s Havana faux-leather leggings will wow when paired with your sassiest heels. Or if you’re feeling casual, pull out the sneakers and cap and embrace your athleisure look. The easy fit makes these the perfect choice for a comfortable evening in, a long flight, or a sultry night on the town. I love the look, feel, and fit of these incredible leggings! I really like that they look great in heels, boots, or sneakers. They are my favorite leggings by far!
The Transform Handbag by Urban Originals
Many of you may already know that I am a huge fan of handbags! So it’s no surprise that I would have one or two or three on this list. This first one is the Transform by Urban Originals. It radiates a sense of style and ease. An internal press stud feature allows the bag to compress from a classic, spacious tote shape to a smaller handbag style. I also really like that this structured tote can also be carried as a traditional shoulder bag thanks to the removable shoulder strap.
Another one that I absolutely adore is the Urban Originals Women’s Lennox Bag. It’s the perfect size and weight. Because of it’s Tan color it goes great with a variety of looks, which makes it really versatile. I also love that it holds a ton of things!
PediPocket is uniquely and intelligently designed with your utmost comfort in mind. It measures almost 6ft in length including a foot pocket to keep your feet toasty. This large deluxe fuzzy blanket offers six feet of plush fleece material. Measuring 50” x 70”, there’s no tucking needed! It’s a great gift for men and women of all ages!
What to Try
B.Nutty’s seasonal Pumpkin Spice Gourmet Peanut Butter
Tis’ the season for all things Pumpkin Spice! B.Nutty’s seasonal Pumpkin Spice Gourmet Peanut Butter is made with honey roasted peanuts and 100% creamy pumpkin and holiday spices. I love all things pumpkin especially in the fall season. So, of course, I had to add this to the list. I also really like that it’s available in both 2oz and 12 oz sizes. This would be perfect as little take-home gifts for anyone who comes over for Friendsgiving!
Switch up your routine with Moodbeli Adaptogens! Adaptogens are plants and mushrooms that help the body adapt to physical, environmental and emotional stress. Moodbeli products blend adaptogens with organic botanics, spices, and minerals to make it easy to add stress-relieving ingredients to your daily rituals. My favorite has to be the Organic Calming Adaptogen. This Warming Chai-Spiced Ashwagandha Herbal Tonic Mix Helps Increase Vitality & Expand Happiness. Ashwagandha Is One Of The Most Revered Ancient Adaptogens For Its Plethora Of Benefits.
Ashwagandha is a powerful whole system balancer and adaptogenic remedy. It has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to help alleviate stress, support physical and mental stamina, balance the immune system, support the nervous system, promote restful sleep, improve memory and support healthy adrenal function.
Ginger has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and has been used as a digestive aid since ancient times.
And Himalayan Pink Salt provides the body with essential minerals, balances electrolytes and pH, and supports optimal nutrient absorption.
I also like that Moondeli only works with suppliers who are USDA Organic Certified, Fair Trade Certified, Non-GMO Project Certified, and Rain Forest Alliance Certified. They never use sugars or sweeteners in any of their products.
Stuffed Puffs S’Mores Indoors Kits
Stuffed Puffs are marshmallows with chocolate on the inside, guaranteeing the perfect ooey-gooey s’more every time. Stuffed Puffs launched in 2,100 Wal-Mart stores just before Memorial Day and were the number one sold marshmallow in those stores over the summer. Their new S’mores Indoors kit will feature a bag of Stuffed Puffs and two sleeves of graham crackers (no chocolate bars needed).
“The idea was born around a campfire,” said Michael Tierney, who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY in 2010. “And now, with Stuffed Puffs, you can bring that experience indoors with just seven seconds in the microwave – something you can’t do with traditional marshmallows and chocolate.”
“Stuffed Puffs is a simple idea, but not easy to execute, which is why it hasn’t been done before,” Tierney continued. “I spent seven years figuring out a truly innovative system that breaks the rules of traditional candy making. And s’mores are only the starting point. We are already at work on a different flavor and coating combinations for a treat that’s as instantly snackable as it is toastable.”
Stuffed Puffs S’mores Kits are available online and at select WalMart stores across the country, priced at $5.48. Individual bags of Stuffed Puffs will still be available online and in-store at WalMart and other locations. Shop online or find a store near you that carries Stuffed Puffs here.

What to Use
Back Teeth Micro Mint flossers: Children aren’t the only ones at risk of tricks this season – research says parents may not get dressed up to go trick-or-treating but 44% will eat more candy than their children this Halloween!
Plackers Back Teeth Micro Mint flossers are available for those parents that shamelessly steal candy from their children’s Halloween haul. These angled floss picks are specially designed to access hard to reach back teeth. I know both my hubby and I will definitely be eating some of the boys’ candy. We have been using Plackers flossers for years now and they are the only brand we buy. We even keep a pack in the car for whenever we are on the go and need to floss.
These mint flossers are my favorite because of their angle, I have very hard to reach back teeth. However, with these flossers I don’t have to battle anymore.
Apple Cinnamon flossers: Looking for something with fall flavors? Plackers Apple Cinnamon flossers are infused with a burst of apple cinnamon flavor that will delight your senses and keep your smile free of debris.
These apple cinnamon flossers are my hubby’s favorite! He loves how easy they are to reach and the clean feeling they leave in his mouth.
You can find Plackers Flossers at retail stores nationwide like Walmart, Target, and of course on Amazon.

Mill Creek Botanicals Wild Oats Scrub Apricot exfoliates skin naturally with oats, apricot kernel, vitamins E and A, and agave to remove dead skin cells and blackheads. This product also gives your skin a deep cleanse while stimulating circulation to bring out your skin’s natural glow.
Tattoo Junkee’s matte liquid lipsticks
Pucker up this season with Tattoo Junkee’s matte liquid lipsticks. Sport a knockout nude pout in Attitude, a matte terracotta-colored liquid lipstick that’ll become a staple this fall. This rich, high-pigmented burnt orange long-lasting liquid lipstick offers no need to reapply. I really like this smudge-proof gorgeous lip color that dries matte and stays in place all day! Plus you can add the included glitter for a totally different look.
Bouclème’s Soft Hold Cream
Curl TLC in a bottle! Bouclème’s ultra-nourishing leave-in soft hold cream offers unrivaled moisture and humidity protection. Styles, softens, and defines all curl types, helping harness the power of your frizz to create bouncy, velvety curls.
So not what you’re thinking! LOL 😀 The time has come to wrap your Vino!! Wine Condoms are the easiest, most fun wine stopper you’ll ever use. Simply open the package and roll it over the top of the bottle. Once applied, it will help preserve the wine, prevent spills and best of all it’s reusable!
This protective wine covering was Invented by a mother-son duo, inspired by a Macgyvered wine seal that looked like a makeshift condom. Unaware of the success that would come from this hilarious, yet effective solution to resealing opened bottles of wine, they set out to create this fun novelty gift. With a bigger is better mentality (pun intended), the newly upgraded wine condom version 2.0 is the ultimate in wine protection and preservation.
The shrink to fit technology allows you to seal up almost any opened bottle, creating a water-tight and air-tight seal that is fully reusable! No need to buy separate bottle stoppers for different sized bottles, this is an all in one solution for storing your opened beverages, wine and more. The tight seal keeps oxygen out and liquid in, providing the ultimate spill protection while sealing in freshness. It is 99.9% effective preventing unplanned spills screw the cork.
Sure to put a smile, or awkward expression on even the most uptight wine snobs face, wine condoms are about being functional and fun. Set the mood with a bottle of wine and this silly yet practical beverage storage solution. Most bottle stoppers add too much length to be placed upright in the refrigerator once opened, wine condoms offer a solution to upright or side-lying storage. The leak-proof technology means you can pick your favorite position; talking about storage of course.
These wine stoppers make the perfect gift paired with a bottle of wine, or alone. The ideal gag gift for the friend that can’t quite loosen up. The reactions are priceless, and the functionality is unparalleled!
For the kids and kids at heart.
Plackers Kids Flossers
The sugar in Halloween candy can play some unwanted tricks on your child’s teeth if you’re not careful. It’s important to ensure your children floss their teeth before bed after a night of sweet treats. Plackers Kids flossers make it easy with a dual grip handle and angled head. The Fruit Smoothie Swirl flavor and bright colors don’t hurt either!
We all know how important it is for kids to start taking care of their teeth and gums at an early age. That’s why it’s great that my boys absolutely loved these and there’s no longer a fight when it comes to having them floss. Especially my youngest! It’s so cute to see when he’s setting up his supplies for brushing that he automatically puts out two of these Plackers Kids Flossers.
These are perfect for families with multiple kids thanks to their dual grips! The dual grips make it easy to grip and hold on to these flossers no matter what size hands are holding them. Plus the angled head helps my boys to reach all of their teeth. For more information on healthy habits for kids, check out this quick video from Plackers.
