I LOVE Fall. How about you? There’s just something so wonderful about the season. The cooler air, the changing leaves and PUMPKINS! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love pumpkins?

Living in LA, we don’t  experience the cool crisp days associated with Fall until sometime in November. (Cold weather climates..Pleeeeezzzz don’t hate me for stating this fact).

That being said, the month of October brings with it a number of lovely fall mementos that one should not ignore but instead partake in …no matter what the official temperature reading is outside.

Here’s the short list of 5 fabulous fall items to enjoy right this very minute….

Number ONE! Decorate with pumpkins..it’s the perfect prop for outdoor decor and transitions perfectly right into Thanksgiving.

Number TWO: Bake or buy some YUMMY pumpkin baked goods…

Sunday…5 things

Sunday is my absolute favorite day of the week. It marks new beginning, a fresh slate and time to regroup for the week ahead.

Bearing in mind that the sole reason I started this blog was to bring joy and inspiration you…. my lovely readers, I have compiled 5 simple suggestions that I hope will brighten your day and inspire you for the week ahead. Here’s to a brand new week-I hope yours is filled with beauty and moments that make your heart sing. xoxoT

Pretty Petals are ALWAYS a good idea.
Buy yourself a beautiful bunch and breath in the fragrance of fresh cut flowers. Instant mood booster.
A new lipstick is an easy, affordable and doable wardrobe essential. Here’s a list of drugstore nudes that just might make your day.
Shop your closet. Go into your very own closet and pair items you haven’t put together in the past. Whah lah instant wardrobe refresh.
DON’T HATE ME (I know swimsuit buying brings on major anxiety for most) BUT, if you’re in need of a swimsuit-now is the time to buy before everything is OOS (out of stock). Anytime after May-and the selection dwindles down..to less desirable options.
Remind yourself each day that YES, YOU are beautiful.

Happy Sunday.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog. I’ve been getting a number of requests from you my lovely readers,asking for a bit more background and or personal info on the blog writer. I promise, that I’m not in any sort of witness protection program. I started this blog to bring readers a bit of inspiration and beauty to their day. But I do want to oblige your requests for some 411 on me so here we go…Thank you for reading Go To Glamour Girl !

Have a lovely Sunday. (P.S. Which just so happens to be my FAVORITE day of the week.)

I share the same birth date as Coco Chanel. August 19.. NOT the same yer. Just say’n.
My Mother was an expert seamstress and used fabric scraps to make evening gowns for my Barbie. Mom had beautiful attention to detailing and my Barbie dresses had beading and trains and rhinestones galore. Mom had some pretty premium scraps. I have a strong suspicion that those handmade gowns for my Barbie-inspired my never ending quest of coveting gorgeous evening gowns to this day.
I have a major penchant for the color pink.

I love to sew and make allot of my own clothing.
Owls fascinate me.
