The Great Pumpkin

It’s that time of year!  The time that my thoughts turn to all things pumpkin!

From fashion to beauty, this season it’s all about the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

Whether it’s bright and bold or warmed up with a dash of nutmeg, pumpkin is the way to make a chic statement this fall.

Here are some of my favorite pieces:





Fashion isn’t the only area you can add some pumpkin to your look.

Pumpkin supplies a rich source of vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes making it the perfect ingredient for skin care products!

I spoke with Elizabeth Alvillar of  Isvara Organics- a company founded upon the belief that the best way to promote and protect the natural beauty of your skin and hair is through the use of vital plant nutrients- about the benefits of pumkin:

Q: How does pumpkin benefit the skin?

IO: The natural fruit acids, along with Vitamins A, C, E, replenishing enzymes, and minerals make it an excellent pore refiner, exfoliant, and break out inhibitor. 

The fruit acids in pumpkin act like alpha hydroxyl acids which have been shown to promote smoother, younger-looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal and generating more collagen production.  Pumpkin decreases oxidation and free radical stress to the skin. 

It’s ideal for all skin types, but is extraordinarily effective for dull, sluggish, or aging skin because it stimulates circulation, provides vitamin nutrition, restores elasticity, and promotes healing giving your skin a healthy, youthful glow.  To top it off pumpkin also works as a delivery system allowing better penetration to the skin of other key ingredients!

Q: Tell me about Isvara Organics pumpkin products.

IO: Isvara Organics rejuvenating eye treatment & serum is exquisite anti-aging oil rich in Vitamins A, C, E, and Zinc.  Pumpkin seed extract, considered being the “green gold” of natural cosmetics is combined with the super anti-oxidant oils Abyssinian, red raspberry, and macadamia to give you the radiant, flawless skin you deserve.  This product has a high rate of absorption.  Regular use will encourage a smoother texture and balanced color to the skin.  Used, as a serum under your daily moisturizer the rejuvenating treatment will promote deeper penetration of the key ingredients in your daily moisturizer or night cream.

Isvara Organics pumpkin facial mask contains over 100 beneficial nutrients known to reverse the signs of aging.  As we age cell renewal begins to slow down.  The pumpkin mask contains 5% alpha hydroxyl acids, enzymes that digest dead skin cells, making it an ideal treatment for environmentally damaged, blemished, and aging skin.  Naturally rich in anti-oxidants, Vitamin A, C, E, and Zinc, the pumpkin mask is healing and rejuvenating.  The synergistic blend of essential oils and vital nutrients in the pumpkin mask work in harmony to refine your pores, generate cell renewal, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.  Regular use will give you the skin you’ve always wanted.

  4. Fall is my favorite season, especially here in Las Vegas! The weather finally begins to cool off but it’s not yet cold enough for anything heavier than a jacket. It’s perfect for sneaking in a few fall wardrobe pieces here and there before winter comes. I love fall clothes too! This year I’m thrilled to see bright colors in a lot of the fall lines like orange, yellow and red.
    Besides the clothes, the other thing I love about fall? Halloween! Hands down, my favorite holiday. Dressing in costume and gorging myself on candy and chocolate! What could be better?
