Rue makeup artist Rachel B. has been totally obsessed with this all-natural homemade face mask. Not only does it clear out impurities from the skin but it also adds a natural glow (take that, fading summer tan). Oh, and the best part? You probably already have these four ingredients in your kitchen.Face Masks Ingredients Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup plain oatmeal, finely ground
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Combine the honey, water, and yogurt, then heat until the mix is a comfortable temperature to apply to your face.
  2. Stir in the oatmeal until the consistency is clump-free but thick enough to stick to your skin.
  3. Tie your hair back and smooth the warm mixture onto your face.
  4. Leave on for 15 minutes and then wash your face thoroughly.

The result? A fresher-faced you – no spa trip necessary.

Carving out time for breakfast can be a challenge. Between beauty routines (only Beyoncé really wakes up like that) and answering emails, the most important meal of the day often becomes an afterthought. That’s where these healthy egg cups a.k.a. lifesavers come in.

Egg CupsIngredients:

  • 4 whole eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup yellow onion, measured after chopping
  • 2 cups pepper, whichever type(s) you prefer, measured after chopping
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 cups baby spinach, measured after chopping
  • 1 cup mushrooms, measured before chopping
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Whisk eggs and egg whites together in a large measuring cup.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil, onion, peppers, and a pinch of salt. Sauté for 5 – 7 minutes.
  3. Add spinach and mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes. During the last 30 seconds, add garlic.
  4. Pour cooked veggies into whisked eggs. Stir to combine.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease muffin pan with cooking spray.
  6. Pour the mixture evenly into pan.
  7. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until egg tops are firm to the touch.
  8. Let cool in pan before removing.

Serves 12

Don’t want to eat them right away? Store them in the fridge (for no longer than four days) or freeze them individually. Oh, and these little bites only take 25 minutes to make and are less than 50 calories each. How egg-cellent!

Stocking up on candy corn is pretty much a rite of passage in October. From snacks to (edible) décor, it’s fall’s most versatile sweet. Check out these three festive uses for the tiny treat.

Candy Corn PopcornSweet & Salty Popcorn
What happens when you mix white almond bark, popcorn, and this multicolored snack? The Halloween version of trail mix. Dish it out at a spooky soiree or make it your date to that edge-of-your-seat flick.

Candy Corn GarlandSugary Garland
Some fishing line and a few bags of candy corn are all you need to deck out your space for the season. Don’t worry, we won’t tell if you sneak a few pieces off the string.

Candy Corn PumpkinPumpkins with a Twist
Add a three-dimensional, ombré touch to your jack-o’-lantern. And if meticulously deseeding a pumpkin isn’t your thing, just use black paint in place of carving.

We recommend keeping an extra bag on hand in case you eat all the candy of mishaps.

Fact: Apples are good on their own. But nothing says fall like a baked apple treat. Here are eight ways to turn your freshly picked peck into something even more delicious.

Simple Apple Dessert Recipes

Granny Smith
Best for: Caramel Apples
Here’s why: This green apple’s tangy flavor pairs well with the sweetness of caramel. Plus, you get that perfect chomp with every bite.

Best for: Apple Cider
Here’s why: This refreshingly crisp pick has an abundance of juice that blends into a well-rounded cider flavor.

Pink Lady
Best for: Apple Muffins
Here’s why: Don’t worry about these diced pieces cooking down and disappearing. They retain shape like a champ and strike a tasty balance with their nectarous, tart, and tannic notes.

Best for: Apple Crisp
Here’s why: Candied and crunchy, this produce keeps its structure and density throughout baking so your dish won’t get too mushy.

Ginger Gold
Best for: Apple Butter
Here’s why: These golden beauties condense into a creamy, butter-like consistency thanks to their sugary flavor and supersoft flesh.

Best for: Apple Pie
Here’s why: Beloved for its sweetness, the Honeycrisp is guaranteed to stay solid when stuffed inside a flaky crust. For more complexity, try mixing with Granny Smith.

Best for: Applesauce
Here’s why: Shortly after it’s picked, a McIntosh adopts a soft texture that’s perfect for making into sauce. Just season with cinnamon and enjoy.

Rome Beauty
Best for: Baked Apples
Here’s why: One of the firmest apples out there, these ruby reds hold up well in high temps. And their milder flavor means you can pile on the maple syrup.

It’s time to get cooking. After all, an apple a day keeps the doctor away (even if it’s coated in sugar and baked in pie).

Cashmere ponchos. Suede ponchos. Knit ponchos. Thanks to a strong showing on the fall runways, this 70s throwback piece has been elevated to must-have status once again. Not sure how to style it? Here are three versatile (and cozy) ways to try.

Suede PonchoSouth x Southwest
Rest assured, this outfit doesn’t call for spurs. Keep things sophisticated with uniform tones and trade your jeans for slim-fitting pants. Top it all off with a wide-brimmed hat.

White Knit PonchoWinter White
Give your classic white-on-white combo an update. Layer a thick knit poncho over a turtleneck for a sleek silhouette with maximum warmth.

Navy Fringe PonchoBoho Babe
Penny Lane would be proud. Take this look into full effect with a fringed suede version and retro oversized shades. Peace signs encouraged, but not mandatory.
