Bethany Cantor, Content Director
Favorite fall drink: Cafe Au Lait
"During the summer, I'm an iced-coffee-only girl. I don't switch to hot coffee until the first really chilly day hits. Once I make the transition, it's almond milk cafe au laits for me all day, every day."
Favorite fall lip product: The Estée Edit's Cocobalm in Coco Currant and Stila Stay All Day Matte Lipstick in Bonbon
"I'm normally wary of dark lip colors—I'm always afraid they'll age me! But, this year I'm diving head first into deeper hues."
Favorite fall movie: Hocus Pocus
"Honestly, there's no contest for me here. This movie is so joyously camp and I have fun watching it every single time. I even host a yearly viewing party complete with a fall food and cocktails potluck."
Sam White, Video Strategist
Favorite fall drink: Hot Toddy
"Warm honey bourbon is the perfect complement to a brisk, fall day. It reminds me of patterned sweaters and tailgating."
Favorite fall lip product: Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm, Red Dahlia
"This color goes with every fall piece of clothing I own. It's tinted enough to give your lips a natural red color, but not so much that it's the first thing you notice."
Favorite fall movie: Edward Scissorhands
"Johnny Depp will forever remain my first man crush. How can you not like a man with weapons as hands?"
Claire Rodgers, Jr. Editor
Favorite fall drink: Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Sugar-Free Instant Drink Mix
"I absolutely loved coming home to this after school as a kid! It tastes fresh and sweet without all the added sugar."
Favorite fall lip product: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lipstick in La Sensuelle
"I’ll take a wine red lipstick over a summer hue any day. I find that this lippie does an excellent job of staying on all night and never bleeding out."
Favorite fall movie: Stepmom
"Depressing, I know, but such a classic film. It’s perfect for a rainy day!"
Zack Handler, Videographer
Favorite fall drink: Hot Mulled Cider
"I like the straight-from-the-orchard quality to the taste, and it still packs a punch."
Favorite fall lip item: Chapstick Lip Balm
"Gets the job done—plain and simple."
Favorite fall movie: Halloween
"This seminal horror film has every right to boast the reason for the season as its title. No other movie captures the mystique and chill surrounding jovial Halloween festivities."
Carson Mehl, Senior Social Media Strategist
Favorite fall drink: Apple cider Moscow mule
"Is there anything better than apple cider in the fall? Yes! Alcoholic apple cider in the fall. I found this recipe last year for apple cider Moscow mules and it’s a hit!"
Favorite fall lip product: NARS Audacious Lipstick in Bette
"I LOOOOVVEEE deep oxblood/maroon-y-red colors in the fall and this one is by far my favorite. I’m a huge fan of Nars lipstick in general, but this color is my go to when going out in the fall!"
Favorite fall movie: Dead Poets Society
"You laugh, you cry—so many emotions. Carpe Diem."
Caitlin Miller, Site Editor
Favorite fall drink: Chai Latte
"Honestly, there’s nothing better than grabbing a Chai on my way to work. It’s warm and relaxing and sets me up for a good day."
Favorite fall movie: Mona Lisa Smile
"I’m a sucker for collegiate prep style, so this movie is pure gold to me. I don’t know what I like better, the New England setting, Julia Roberts (!) or the array of perfectly tailored wool sweaters."
