Fall is officially here. Time to spend way too much time on Pinterest looking at ways to paint pumpkins with leftover crayons and time to spend way too much money on Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
The Mighty Purse
Inside this clutch, appropriately named The Mighty Purse, is a hidden charger that can recharge most smartphones. Even though this was just released, there is already a waiting list, with a shipment coming in mid-October. You can pre-order yours at Apricot Lane and it retails for $99. apricotlanelouisville.com
These Blessings Bracelets feature religious medals tied with pink fabric to support Breast Cancer Awareness. They are available at Cale & Cole in Norton Commons for $28. A percentage of sales goes to Breast Cancer Research. www.facebook.com

Pappy & Co. Merchandise
We are excited that Pappy Van Winkle has launched a new line of merchandise called Pappy & Co. If we can’t find the bourbon, we can always find a cute hat, t-shirt or barware with Pappy’s name on it. These t-shirts, shown on Louise Van Winkle Breen (a future FACES of Louisville), retail for $28 and are available at The Fashion Post. www.thefashionpost.com
Pappy & Co. will have their launch party on October 19 at Foxhollow Farm. For more information on this event, click here.
We love our boots, but we don’t love our freezing legs under those boots. Here are some fancy socks to keep you warmer. From Ida-clair, these are Soxie Lous, or “socks you want to see.” Available at the Urban Farmhouse Market for $12 a pair. www.theurbanfarmhousemarket.com
You’ve seen the signs all around town for Honeycrisp Apples. They are my favorite apple and I love incorporating them into all parts of my meals. Here’s my favorite fall salad recipe that involves these sweet, tart, crunchy perfect apples. www.styleblueprint.com
Ale 8 Sweet Salsa
This yummy salsa is more like a relish, with Kentucky tomatoes and peppers and the sweet gingery flavor from Ale 8. Sold in the “local” section of Nanz & Kraft for $9. www.nanzandkraft.com
Recognize this? It’s a miniature version of the famous Bird Girl statue in Savannah, Georgia. Now you can enjoy this in your own garden. Available at Digs for $150. digshomeandgarden.com
