Hello Curvy Queens! If you’re anything like me, then Fall is your favorite season! The resplendent blue skies, the green leaves changing to various hues of apricot, crimson and cinnamon, not to mention the crisp air warmed by the sun. I LOVE FALL! But with the changing of the season comes a few more rainy days, and the sun doesn’t always come out to play.

Cooler temps and lack of sunshine is the perfect recipe for the blues! But fret not Divas! Here at the Curvy Fashionista, we’re here to help you through the cool weather woes with some self care—just what the doctor ordered!

Here are our 4 self care tips to Brighten Up Your Dreary Fall Days!

It may be gloomy OUTside, but it certainly doesn’t have to feel gloomy INside! Jazz up your home space with some fall flair! Go to your local supermarket and purchase a few pumpkins to adorn your home’s entrance. Be sure to decorate the inside of your space as well. Table runners, centerpieces, and decorative pillows are just a few items that will have your home feeling cozy in no time! This self care change will help in keeping the negativity out of the house and that warm, fuzzy feeling inside with you.

2)You’ve got to COORDINATE!

Tis the season for deep purples, warm metallics, and stunning neutrals! Don’t be afraid to push the envelope when it comes to your makeup and fashion! After all, when you LOOK good, you FEEL good!

Adult coloring books are gaining popularity and with good reason! Coloring is not just therapeutic; it’s also a healthy means of self-expression. So pull out your colored pencils and give it a try! You might be surprised by how relaxing it is! To kick it up a notch, attend a painting class! Creating your own artwork while sipping your favorite drink is the perfect combo to give you that “zen-like” atmosphere that you crave!

4) Let your home smell the part!

  1. I need tips for the summer, because I actually thrive in the Fall/Winter months. The Summer months make me depressed and miserable :/ People think it’s funny, but it isn’t. It sucks.
