By Elle Grant As the temperatures drop, fireplaces begin blazing and the scents of the holiday seasons come out to play, New Englanders are inevitably drawn to the familiar. Thick sweaters, high boots and warm scarves are all essential to the chilly weather. However, this season offers an elevation of style by providing new twists on old classics.

The Cape Or as the less elegant may call it, the poncho; either way, the cape serves as the chicest layering piece of the season. Caught between its identity as a scarf and a coat, the poncho has an effortless glamour thrown over almost any fall outfit from a blouse, jeans and boots to something more high fashion. Isabel Marant serves as example of the elegance muted patterns paired with a cape. Tap into your most phantom of the opera self and pick one up for this season!


Animal Print Inexplicably, fashion has decided to take a walk on the wild side this fall and winter. Animal prints ranging from cheetah to zebra to tiger have been prowling down the catwalk. Many brands like Victoria Beckham and Balenciaga have opted for the head to toe look by pairing coats with dresses or coats. For a slightly less savage option, feel free to pick up an animal printed blouse this fall to pair with anything from blue jeans to a black mini skirt.


Leather A dominating fabric whenever the temperature chills, leather offers a pleasant respite from the slacks or jeans others may stick to this season. The black sheen leather often offers is similar to another trend of the season, gloss, but its unique composition ensures leather will always stand on its own. While some designers embraced this trend full by introducing full leather coats like Givenchy, others like Hermes stuck to classics like the leather mini skirt. Opting for a more understated leather piece will serve the fall conscious fashionista for years to come.



STYLE GUIDES Plaid Statements A classically Americana print, darker fall plaids serve as statement pieces on the runways this season. Reminiscent of a Clueless-esque inspiration, plaid skirts and blazers served as an elevated suiting option this season as a spunkier take on a classic. Versace embraced the plaid furthermore by creating a neon take. Those not ready to embrace such a bold take can opt for a scarf or skirt to serve as an accent to the fall ensemble.


Suiting Where business meets pleasure, but it stays work appropriate. Move over boys, the fashion industry has consistently been reclaiming menswear as the new womenswear, and this season is no exception. The gray suit seems to be the indispensable piece of the season and it is fortunately fundamentally work appropriate with anything from a white t-shirt to a blouse underneath. For a sexier night time look, leave the shirt behind for a dramatic plunging neckline into a buttoned suit top similar to the runway looks of OffWhite.


Gloss Perhaps the most unexpected of the trends this season, this sheen seems to thinly coat all of the season’s accessories from bags to boots to sunnies. Balmain took the gloss to the ninth with a holographic take that was impossible to ignore. The less daring could opt for a single colored sheen accent purse to pair with a fall ensemble. While we look forward to the snowy days ahead, let gloss be reminiscent of the lighter, warmer textures of summer.

CONCLUSION To conclude, there is so much more to look forward to in the coming seasons than merely the chill in the air. The trends of this fall and winter serve as reminders of tradition while also serving as the fun alternatives never expected, but so needed. So, embrace the most cheerful winter has to offer with your fashion in the coming months! BALMAIN PHOTOS: ELLE.COM

As a fashion designer and more importantly, as a woman, I have watched the media and the fashion world dictate the meaning of “beauty”. I have watched and been subject to their creation, defining and constant redefining of what beautiful is. This distortion of reality hit me even harder when I began to realize it was stifling my creativity as a designer. I want to make it my mission to deconstruct the definition of “beauty”. I want to empty it of all its connotations and rebuild it into something that will include all women. That being said, I want to design for every type of woman- big, small, short, tall, young, and old. Every color, every creed, and everything in between.

CARE By Calma Salon

As we say farewell to Summer and move toward Autumn and Winter, our skincare routines will need to be tweaked a little to compensate for the dryness and dehydration that the cooler weather brings to our skin. Autumn it is the perfect time to undo some of the damage we may have done to our skin throughout the summer months. I always start each season with a Peel or series of Peels. This professional step will take off that dead, damaged skin that is sitting on top of our epidermis. Goodbye fine lines and pigmentation, and say Hello to soft, bright, firm baby skin! Peels are very important to your skin care regimen and getting one that is customized for your skin can truly make an immediate and substantial change in how you look and how you feel. A series of Dermalogica Pro Peels booked 2-4 weeks apart can drastically change your skin with very little to no downtime. We must also remember to Hydrate our skin. Look for ingredients like Hyaluronic acid which is a hydration powerhouse thanks to its ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water. Glycerin is a humectant that locks in moisture on the skin. Ceramides are a long chains of skin lipids that are part of the skin’s natural moisture barrier. They basically hold the water and hydration on the skins surface and environmental irritants off. Essential oils are essential fatty acids which can absorb quickly on the skin’s surface and provide moisture and age-old beauty benefits to the skin. Combining monthly facials with peels and treatments customized for your specific skin care needs can be a heavenly way to keep your skin healthy, hydrated and glowing yearround. For a reference, here are some popular Dermalogica ProPeels that can be layered and combined to target many skin concerns: 30% Lactic acid is great for Brightening the skin and targeting the early signs of aging. 30% Glycolic Acid resurfaces the skin and helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles. 2% Salicylic Acid with 10% Mandelic Acid and 15% Malic Acid targets blemishes and the appearance of post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation. 15% TCA is a powerful peptide complex to minimize appearance of advanced aging.

CLYDE’S CIDERMILL Clyde’s Cider Mill is located in the small village of Old Mystic, CT. B.F. Clyde’s started making Hard Cider in 1881. The apples for our Hard Ciders and Apple Wines come from local orchards and are pressed into juice here at our Mill. The juice is then pumped directly into oak casks in the Mill’s cellar, where it is fermented and ages for up to 3 years. Our Ciders and Apple Wines are still, in keeping with the tradition of cider makers of long ago. Tradition is very important to Clyde’s. In 1898, Frank and Abby Clyde built the Victorian style building and purchased the machinery still in use today. Clyde’s is the last steam powered cider mill in the U.S. today. In 1994, Clyde’s was designated a National Historic Landmark. They are the 6th generation of the Clyde’s family making cider just like B.F. Clyde did in 1881. Opened from September thru late December, a visit to Clyde’s Cider Mill is like stepping back in time. The only steam powered cider mill with a loud whistle in the U.S. that signals the crowd that the apples are getting ready to be pressed. They start their season in September with hard ciders and apple wines, jams, jellies, local honey, maple syrup, fudge, and what many people call “The best sweet cider on Earth”! Also available in the Fall are apples, apple pies, pumpkin bread, gourds, Indian corn, pumpkins, candy apples, kettle corn and apple cider donuts.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS YOGA & BODYBUILDING The fusion of these to amazing worlds came together for me in 2014 integrating them as help me rebuild and balance my body. I am taking this opportunity to share what I have learned. Weightlifting involves repetitive movements that involve the shortening and lengthening the range of motion of the muscles being work. Over time, the muscles range of motion will decrease making the muscles tight and they will lose flexibility. By adding a yoga practice to your routine, you will be able to increase range of motion to all your tight muscles and by taking an hour's yoga program you will move in different anatomical planes it will help one regain the loss range of motion in your muscles and will decrease any stiffness that is present from the workouts. Balance is sometimes over looked when you are building a better version of yourself thru exercise and weight training. In a well-balanced Yoga Program the poses that are performed are structured to create a symbiosis of balance and strength and mental toughness. Since a large percentage weightlifting activities do not work on developing balance, integrating yoga into your exercise program can help you achieve so much more depth in your ability to take each muscle to a greater range of motion. Unless you are training in group situation most exercise weight lifting programs are done alone, while in yoga a group setting. It's truly refreshing to participate in a program that promotes community and it's a great way to break out of the everyday routine. I personally like Vinyasa yoga it flows from one pose to the next, is an excellent complement to a weightlifting program- as it will not only work out muscles and increase flexibility, but it will also add cardio. Yoga allows you to break out of the everyday habit and shakes up the routine. Yoga allows you to take a mental break, during classes, yoga can offer a way to be kind and forgiving to our bodies and our state of mind. for me one of the best things that you get out of your Yoga practice it is a practice of self and not be competitive with those around. Truly working on your breathing while you are in movement allows you to focus more on your breath when you are lifting weights. The core strength that yoga helps develop is an important element to add to your program, not only does your core strength increase with your practice, it helps perfect proper lifting techniques and strengthens muscles that you never get to train while you are lifting. When you do full- body compound movements, where you are activating your fast -twitch muscle fibers you are developing power and strength. In yoga by slowing down the movements through the poses and holding them, you are activating slow-twitch fibers that helps with building endurance. So combining these two worlds you are creating a balance between both fast and slow twitch fibers. This type of hybrid training truly allows you to become a more efficient machine. This perfect storm of the mind, body and soul is married when you combine these two activities. While weight training requires a progression of loading and increasing heavier lifts truly helps you to develop controlled aggression, yoga teaches you to become a peaceful powerful warrior with a clam way of approaching a task. Yoga helps quiet inner voice, allows you to listen to your body when it whispers to you, so you can be more in tune when you need to rest or back off a lift that might cause and injury. What are you waiting for? Incorporate both these amazing practices into your routine and get the best of both! Never give upon your goals. Follow Alonso @alonsosanchez007

CARE By Calma Salon

We all love the coziness that comes with Fall/Winter days and nights. Cozy sweaters, warm flannels, and furry boots, but our hair struggles come with some real challenges. Let us talk about some of those challenges and how we can deal with them so our hair looks as cute as our wardrobe. 1. Hat Hair: When it’s cold out we want to wear cute hats to keep us warm, but, hats will pull the moisture from your hair and leave it looking flat and full of static. Wait until your hair is completely cool from your hair styling before putting your hat on, this will prevent the warm hair from taking on the shape of the hat. When you take your hat off, shake your hair out upside down. You should be good as new! 2. Split Ends: The best cure was always a haircut, but now we have the Brazilian Blowout Split End Treatment. This is a 10-15 minute in salon treatment that uses a proprietary thermal-marine bonding system to fill in and bind weakened hair fibers, and mend split ends. Your fragile ends will be fortified and strengthened to protect them from heat styling, hot tools and cold dry air. This treatment lasts about 4 weeks. 3. Dry, Brittle Hair & Static: The dry air literally pulls the moisture from your hair making it feel like dry, brittle straw. You will want to replenish that moisture by adding a weekly hydrating masque to your hair, or spraying your hair with a leave in conditioner, applying oil treatments like argon oil can be helpful as well. Oil based treatments should be placed on dry hair and water based treatments should be done on wet hair. Have your Hairstylist give you a b3 Demi Permanent Conditioning Treatment, this treatment is made up of low weight and high weight amino acids, the low weight amino acids penetrate deep in the hair and the higher weight amino acids seal and fortify the outer layers producing moisture and shine. Use an ionic blow dryer, go easy on your heat styling and switch to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner will help control dryness. Two of my favorite products for sealing the hair cuticle and leaving it sleek, smooth and shiny are Brazilian Blowout Ionic Bonding Spray and Wow Dream Coat Spray. They both protect the hair from environmental assaults like cold dry air, humidity, snow and rain. 4. Dry & Itchy Scalp: Just like your skin gets dry in the winter from indoor heating and drier air, your scalp skin does too. When your scalp becomes dry, it's likely to itch and even flake off. Try not to wash it so much, or try a conditioner cleanser or “no poo” cleanser. These will cleanse and balance your hair without stripping your hair of any natural oils or nutrients. This is especially true for curly hair which is notoriously drier that straight hair. Try Biolage, Purology or Devacurl conditioning cleansers. Applying coconut oil to your scalp, rubbing it in, and leaving it on for 10 minutes before washing it out may also offer some relief. If your hair is really itchy and uncomfortable, you might want to try Scalpicin scalp treatment which is a hydrocortisone treatment with tea tree oil and aloe barbadensis leaf juice. It will help calm things down until you get your scalp healthy again.

Pumpkin Bread Serves 2 Loaves Ingredients 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon ground cloves 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened 2 cups sugar 2 large eggs 1 15-oz can 100% pure pumpkin (I use Libby's)

Directions 1.

Preheat the oven to 325°F and set an oven rack in the middle position. Generously grease two 8 x 4-inch loaf pans with butter and dust with flour (alternatively, use a baking spray with flour in it, such as Pam with Flour or Baker's Joy). In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk until well combined; set aside. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until just blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until very light and fluffy, a few minutes. Beat in the pumpkin. The mixture might look grainy and curdled at this point -that's okay. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined. Turn the batter into the prepared pans, dividing evenly, and bake for 65 – 75 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the loaves cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Fresh out of the oven,the loaves have a deliciously crisp crust. If they last beyond a day, you can toast individual slices to get the same fresh-baked effect. Freezer-Friendly Instructions: The bread can be frozen for up to 3 months. After it is completely cooled, wrap it securely in aluminum foil, freezer wrap or place in a freezer bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

Carrot Cake Serves 8-10 Ingredients FOR CARROT CAKE -2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose flour -2 teaspoons baking soda -1 teaspoon kosher salt -1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon -1 1/4 cups (295 ml) canola or other vegetable oil -1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar -1 cup (200 grams) lightly packed brown sugar -1 teaspoon vanilla extract -4 large eggs -3 cups (300 grams) grated peeled carrots (5 to 6 medium carrots) -1 cup (100 grams) coarsely chopped pecans -1/2 cup (65 grams) raisins FOR CREAMY FROSTING -8 ounces (225 grams) cream cheese, at room temperature -1 1/4 cups (140 grams) powdered sugar -1/3 cup (80 ml) heavy whipping cream -1/2 cup (50 grams) coarsely chopped pecans, for topping cake



MAKE BATTER Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease one 9 x13 sheet pan and line the bottom with parchment paper then grease the top of the paper. Or, grease and flour the bottom and sides of both pans. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt, and the cinnamon until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk the oil, sugars, and vanilla. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until combined. Switch to a large rubber spatula. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then add the dry ingredients in 3 parts, gently stirring until they disappear and the batter is smooth. Stir in the carrots, nuts, and raisins.


BAKE CAKE Divide the batter between the prepared cake pans. Bake until the tops of the cake layers are springy when touched and when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean; 20 to 25 minutes. Cool cakes in pans for 15 minutes then turn out onto cooling racks, peel off parchment paper and cool completely.


TO FINISH In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with a handheld mixer on medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the powdered sugar, a 1/4 cup at a time until fluffy. Pour in cream and beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Chill covered until ready to frost cake. When the cake layers are completely cool, frost the top of one cake layer, place the other cake layer on top. Decoratively swirl the top of the cake with remaining frosting, leaving the sides unfrosted. Scatter nuts on top.


Classics In Black

A black handbag is the ideal day to night accessory that should be in every woman’s collection. From Coach and beyond, these three bags are ideal for the many occasions of the Fall/Winter season.

EDITORS FINAL THOUGHTS Since our last issue, these past 6 months have flown by at an accelerated speed. In mid-July, I flew to Miami to shoot an exclusive StyleUp Magazine editorial photoshoot at The Villa Casa Casuarina, formerly known as the Versace Mansion. I’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to see so many stunning venues and backdrops as we continue to grow our fashion magazine. Be sure to visit our Spring/Summer 2019 StyleUp Issue #7 with an array of breathtaking images from this wonderful trip. The changing of the seasons is upon us now and our New England leaves are just turning into those vibrant red, orange and yellow colors. Fall is an exceptionally colorful season. My family has always been called the “Leaf-peepers”, driving to destinations like the Mohawk Trail in Massachusetts, Green Mountain Byway in Vermont, White Mountain Wonderland in New Hampshire and of course Rt 1 off the coast of Maine to see the best foliage. I’ve been taking our StyleUp health fitness trainer’s advice (page 79) since July and have shredded 10 lbs just by limiting sugar intake from my healthy choice of eating. I'm feeling better than ever! It finally hit me this summer that I was ready to get my body in shape. My Miami trip started this journey for me since I lost 1 pound of water weight each day by sweating in the hottest humidity ever! Now I am continuing the toning progress with daily trips to the gym. Our magazine is for women by professionals who endeavor to bring you the best in women’s lifestyle. Women hold many roles in modern time, and we want to explore that, with you, as well as the challenges and mysteries that life holds. We try to stabilize our lives between family, friends, relationships, and work trying to find that balancing act. This Fall/Winter Issue will give you ideas to jump start your day with the hottest topics relevant to women's health and beauty. You’ll discover everything from delicious recipes, style makeovers, fashion trends, seasonal hair & makeup tips, hottest shoes, boots and handbag trends, NYFW collections and luxury/comfy/cozy New England get-a-ways hotels you will want to visit!
