If you've bothered to pick up pretty much any fashion magazine this fall, you know that the color of the moment for accessories, bags, statement pieces (read: pretty much everything) is oxblood. Bold yet sophisticated, and flattering on almost any skin tone, the deep red shade has begun to trickle over - no pun intended - into beauty trends, too.
My favorite iteration has been the plum, berry and deep wine lip colors that are slightly 90s-inspired, but also decidedly current. To avoid looking too washed out or vampire-y, be sure to pair these darker hues with a rosy, shimmer-free blush for a healthy flush of color. Here are some of my favorite lip colors this fall:
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Sugar Plum

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Black Tie

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Grape Vine

Sometimes I just need to bake things. And thanks to Pinterest, easy recipes are not hard to come by. I saw this
recipe, which is possibly the easiest baking I've ever done without simply using a box mix or break and bakes. Just because they're easy doesn't mean they're not also extremely delicious.
Oreo-peanut butter-brownie cakes
1 box 8x8 size brownie mix
