Womanista Wish List: This Week I’m Loving

Let me just start off with this…who else is super excited that fall is in the air?? I am loving cozying up on my porch with a glass of wine and a warm blanket on cool evenings. Plus, I can finally layer my outfits (and let’s be honest, I’ve been rocking fall fashion for a while now, but now I can wear a fabulous fall jacket and not sweat!)

In honor of the chilly temps of fall, here is a cozy-cool list of what I’m loving this week!

Zara Military Jacket with Gold Buttons: This gorgeous cream jacket is the perfect combination of glam and tough. The military style is super figure-flattering, and the cream color and gold hardware add a feminine-chic edge.

It’s great over your work ensemble for day, and will pair perfectly with your date night outfit. Plus, it’s $99! So fab and affordable.

Butternut Squash Chipotle Chili with Avocado from CookieandKate.com: Who can resist a yummy bowl of chili during the fall? Certainly not this womanista. I tried this recipe recently and it is SO GOOD. Plus, it’s vegan & gluten-free and won’t send you into a chili-induced coma.

One shortcut  I used is to buy the butternut squash already chopped in the produce section of your grocery store (and the recipe is super easy after that!) Cook up this dish for your next tailgate! It’s delish and healthy.


Lady Antebellum “On This Winter’s Night”: My favorite christmas album ever is finally out today! Sure, it’s my husband’s album, but still!! It is seriously awesome.

I judge every holiday album by the following “Is this going to be perfect to play in the background while I’m decorating the tree/making apple cider/wrapping presents?” And this one ticks all those boxes (The First Noel is my fave. It’s gorgeous!)

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow in “Sunlight Sparkle”: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Sparkle is my favorite color. And this eye shimmer, womanistas, is the perfect hint of sparkle to rock to a holiday party. It adds a glint of shimmer over your eyes by itself, or swept over another shadow.

It’s so pretty and fabulous. And ladies, don’t be scared of glitter makeup! You don’t have to be 14 or a “dancer” in Las Vegas to wear it! It flatters every skin tone and pairs perfectly with a festive outfit.


What about you, womanistas? What are you loving lately? Any products I must try?? Happy Fall!!

xo, the Womanista

    The Bobbi Brown eyeshadow is to die for! I’m with you – sparkle is my favorite color. And there’s an awful lot of it in my closet and makeup bag as of late.

    My Mom and I both agree that Charles sounds better than Elvis singing Blue Christmas. I love Silent Night and the First Noel.
