1| Paint Your Nails Fun Fall Colors
Fall colors are awesome especially for beauty and what better way to be in the fall spirit than to paint your nails fun fall colors . I love the deep reds , burnt oranges and neutral brown colors for my nails – you can always find some beautiful color combinations with fall colors .
My favorite nail polishes this fall are all Essie. They have such a grand variety of colors and the nail polish in my opinion is good quality, pigmented and lasts long.

3| Have a Warm Fall Beverage and Relax
Hate to sound basic but a pumpkin spiced latte or hot chocolate along with my favorite tv show sounds pretty awesome right about now. Something about warm beverages and being curled up in bed just screams self care and fall .
I used to spend a fortune at Starbucks during the fall and winter until I discovered Pinterest and the ability to make the same drink (most of the time better) right from the comfort of my home.
4| Do Some Fall Decluttering
Usually it’s spring cleaning but oh well let’s call this fall decluttering . You can spend part of your day organizing and decluttering your space . It may not sound like self care but TRUST ME you will thank yourself when your space is organized and you can finally find things you’re looking for . Not all self care is bubble baths and hot chocolate sometimes the best way to care for yourself is good old fashioned decluttering and cleaning .
I am in the process of organizing my whole home so my mind can be clearer . I going room by room finding the best ways to productively organize my space .

5| Carve a Pumpkin
I know we’re grown but seriously it’s fall, Halloween is around the corner and what the hell pumpkins are festive lol . It really is therapeutic to sit down with a glass of wine and carve a pumpkin and it makes for a nice decorative piece . Sounds like a win win to me 🙂
6| Take a Fall Themed Bubble Bath
So obviously bubble baths and self care are like a happy married couple but have you ever had a fall inspired bubble bath ? Fall scents and colors are so relaxing and are bound to take your generic bubble bath to the next level .
Here are some awesome things to add to your bubble bath environment to make it more in line with fall:
- Pine Cones as Decor
- Candles ( my favorite are pumpkin spice or cinnamon )
- Bath Bombs
- Fall Wine (yes this is a thing)
7| Update Your Fall Wardrobe
It definitely gets a wee bit cooler around the fall so that means it’s time to swap out the booty shorts and crop tops and trade them in for comfy sweaters , jeans and boots to stay cozy this fall .
This just gives you an excuse to engage in some shopping self care therapy haha . Don’t go overboard (says my frugal side) but a little shopping won’t hurt . Plus buying things you look good in boosts your confidence and your mood so shop away 🙂

9| Use a Moisturizing Face Mask
One thing fall does do is dry out your skin . It’s something about the coolness in the air that causes dry lips and peeling skin and trust me it is not fun . The best way to combat this is by doing a moisturizing face mask . What I love about face masks is they make you feel pampered and your skin feels great afterwards so they are a perfect addition to a self care day .
My favorite moisturizing face mask is the Burts Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask ($18) – it really does live up to its name and moisturizes the hell out of your face which is perfect for dry skin in the winter . I use this at least once a week to give my skin a moisture boost throughout the week.
But I also love DIY face masks because they pack a great punch, much cheaper and add variety to my skin care routine . The best part is I actually have a post dedicated to DIY Face Masks For Glowing Skin so definitely check that out if you want some awesome face mask recipes .
10| Go On a Relaxing Walk and Take In the Fall Air

It’s good exercise , a good way to practice mindfulness and a good way to boost your energy so why not incorporate a relaxing walk In your fall self care routine .
So here are some of my favorite ways to practice self care in the fall . Pick a few and add them to your self care day routine to really get in the fall vibes.
