The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far!

Fall is a great time of year for outdoor activities. You can do anything from playing football with friends, to hiking and best of all, apple picking! Even if you do not like apples, heading out to your local orchard and picking shiny red apples is a fall must!

They offer all things fall related from pumpkin picking to hay rides and fun and challenging corn mazes! So while you’re chomping on your apple, you can challenge your friends to a corn maze extravaganza or just relax on a hay ride while watching all the beautiful fall colors pass you by.

You can always look fabulous and chic while partaking in your fall activities too! The fall season always includes beautiful and rich colors you can use to accent your fall look. Simply having fun fall themed accessories is also a great way to liven up any apple picking trip. No matter what autumn activity you choose this season, you can always look great!

If you’ve been anywhere on the Internet lately, you may have noticed that Halloween is trending. It’s only September!! We’re all about Halloween, but at least wait until it hits October to break out the costume ideas!

Even though in our opinion, it’s a bit too early to hop on the Halloween bandwagon, fall themed crafts (that happen to have orange and black color schemes) are totally acceptable! So here’s a fun and easy way to liven up your cupcakes with a fall twist: chocolatey owl cupcakes!

All you need is your favorite cupcake recipe, some chocolate frosting, some Oreo cookies, and orange and brown M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces.

Instructions:

Bake your cupcakes and frost with chocolate icing. Then, carefully split 2 Oreo cookies per cupcake (keeping the frosting fully in tact on one side of the cookie) and place them atop the cupcake as pictured. Garnish with two brown M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces candies to finish the eyes, and add an orange candy between the two Oreo sides to form a beak. Voila! Cute, yummy owl cupcakes that are perfectly festive and appropriate as a pre-Halloween fall crafty treat!

NFL Nail Designs

How do you get women interested in football? Inspire them with fan-inspired manicures, or as Covergirl is calling them, “fanicures.” What a fun idea for superfans/manicure fanatics to express two passions in one! Covergirl even has a unique tutorial for each NFL team!

fanicureIt looks like it takes some serious talent to paint on those team mascots, but at the very least the coordinating colors make for a fun, sporty manicure! Covergirl nailpolishes ring up at under $5 a pop, so they’re not too expensive a habit to indulge.

What do you think of these game day nails? Would you try it? What team would you rock on your fingers?rgz10429We’d pair them up with a few stackable birthstone rings in coordinating colors!
