As seasons start to transition, so can our skin. We love the entire line by Thrive Causemetics, but this overnight mask is a recipe for radiant, bright and moisturized skin that will carry your summer glow right over into fall. It contains licorice root extract, vegan lactic acid and melatonin for a calming effect for your face. Plus, this company is bigger than beauty. For every product purchased, they donate to help a woman thrive across their system of partners. They’ll donate products and monetary donations with each purchase. Thrive is also committed to vegan, 100% cruelty-free formulas without any use of parabens or sulfates.

The Bloody Mary Mix is a star product that begins with cucumber infused water, paired with generous amounts of horseradish, dill, garlic, and habaneros, they capture your backyard garden in a jar and set a new standard for what a Bloody Mary should taste like!

September initiates fall, which means chili, and stew and soups and one-pot magic meals! This cast iron pot is super high-quality, affordable and you’ll be the most stylish one at the tailgate with it’s pretty white finish. It’s a great investment and a piece of cookware you’ll use for years to come! We love this line and fortunately, Target offers coupons on a regular basis you can apply to get it for even less.

Everyone needs a cozy blanket scarf while we transition from warm weather to crisp and cooler air. This scarf is a great investment – it’s high quality, a neutral color palette that goes with everything and has a fringe detail for a classic look. And we love a good female-founded enterprise. Plush was started by designer Jennifer Kim Newton; an East Coaster with an appreciation for the changing seasons. She designs a full collection of comfortable, yet stylish wardrobe essentials for every season, made to last.
