5 Must-Have Fall Boots


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
Even though it's super hot in Arizona right now, it doesn't stop us from dusting off our favorite Fall boots we've tucked away in our closets. Lucky for Co-Founder, Karen, she's had the chance to rock her boots in Seattle, Washington (jealous).  In Arizona back when we were in college, you knew it was Fall when all the sorority girls on campus had on UGGS (in 90 degree weather of course...haha). If you want to jump on the boots train then check out our favorite pairs above. Every girl should have a classic black boot in their Fall wardrobe so that's why we love this 'Andora' Over-the-Knee Boot from Nordstrom. Brown boots are no different! There are so many shades to choose from with brown boots, but our favorite color is a more tannish tone like this 'Pondrosa' Suede Boot from Nordstrom. Pair your boots with stylish jeans or a cute dress with tights. However you choose to wear your boots, rock them with confidence!

Style tip: When you buy your boots, be sure to get socks that are easy to wear with boots. It will make a world of a difference down there!

Below are our must-buy Fall Scents for 2014.


*Tip: Wallflower Fragrance Refills are the best products to use in a big space to make the whole room permeate with that specific scent.

The Truth About Ebola


The media has gone crazy these last couple of weeks revolving around Ebola. We want to keep you informed because a lot of satire and fabrications over this virus have been spreading like wild fire. Let's start with exactly WHAT Ebola is.

Ebola is one of numerous viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHF) transmitted through direct contact with blood or body fluids of an infected person or exposure to objects (i.e. needles) that have been contaminated with the infected body fluids. This virus can affect both humans and non humans (i.e.: monkeys, gorillas, and chimpanzees). Studies are showing that this virus came from a bat.

Myths

  • VHF (Ebola) can be transmitted through the air.
              The Truth: VHF (Ebola) CANNOT be transmitted through the air.

  • Ebola came out of nowhere this year.

             The Truth: Ebola did not just surface out of nowhere this year. Ebola was first discovered in 
             1976 near the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo.

  •  Ebola has a cure.
            The Truth: No vaccine or medicine is available to cure Ebola. Experimental vaccines and   
            treatments for Ebola are under development, but they have not been fully tested.

  • You will catch Ebola if you travel to Africa.
           The Truth: Not necessarily. The places to avoid are Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone due to 
           the high level of Ebola cases. Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo have only  
          experienced a small number of Ebola cases so as long as precautionary measures are taken, 
          exposure should be limited.

Overall, it's all about protecting yourself so that we can diminish the spread of this awful virus. How you can accomplish this is to simply keep yourself clean. Wash your hands frequently; avoid contact with blood and body fluids of any person, especially someone who is sick; don't touch bats and non human primates or their blood and fluids.

For more information on how to properly treat Ebola and other great info on this virus, please check out our source, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

As the weather gets cooler and cooler (seems like forever in Arizona, but Seattle is already feeling it!) it's time to clean out our closets of all of our short shorts and tanks and whip out those cute, over-sized sweaters we've been looking forward to bringing out again for this cool season. An over-sized sweater with some hot leggings or trendy jeans can make for the cutest fall/winter outfit. Pair it with some pointed heels or converse, UGGS, and/or Tims and you're ready to take on the world with your Fall fashion. As we were on the hunt for oversized sweaters, we found that Topshop has tons of cute sweaters!  Here's our top 5 favorites from Topshop! Check them out above!
