October is officially here! Join me in celebrating Halloween month by incorporating festive hues into your daily life. From home decor to fitness, these are my orange must-haves for October.


Perfect for the kitchen, the Cilantro Orange Scented Oil Diffuser by LAFO is bold and uplifting with notes of green cilantro, mandarin orange and watercress. The boxed set includes scented oil, oversized bamboo reeds and a hand-blown glass vessel, making it a fantastic gift for your Halloween hostess.

It’s not just what comes inside those chic Hermès packages – the boxes themselves can be used as colorful room decor! This DIY stacking example by Tabulous Design is a convincing reason not to throw out the classic orange containers.

The graphic pop of this reversible Jonathan Adler throw pillow is sure to enhance any room this October. Incorporate a fun, bohemian vibe into your home with the iconic peace and love sign design.

Seasonal flowers are one of the simplest and most effective ways to keep your home decor festive. Add a splash of color to any room with a gorgeous orange orchid.


This October, try a subtle hint of autumn in your makeup shades. The bright, orange-red Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Heat Wave pairs perfectly with fall nights out. 

Nail polish is an effortless way of showing off your Halloween spirit. Try Butter London’s super creamy polish in Silly Billy.

Take a classic kick in a festive direction with Chuck Taylor All Stars by Converse in orange. You can’t go wrong with this tried-and-true style in any season! 

Not quite comfortable wearing bright colors? Try accessorizing with a neon clutch instead. The chic Comme des Garcons’ leather pouch is lined with black fabric, making it the perfect Halloween party accessory.


Add energy to your workout wardrobe with sunny autumn pieces! Try versatile BEYOND YOGA styles like the Original Cami and the Haute Legging in new fall hue Harvest Gold.

Exercise bands are easy to use and super convenient for travel. This orange ripcord from Wright Exercise is my October fitness essential. Pack it up and go for an effective, anywhere workout. 

Cycling is not only an amazing body and mind workout – it brings out the kid in us! Since Halloween month is all about being kid-friendly, why not take up cycling with an orange Crusher CB Cruiser by Sun Bicycles?


My favorite thing about Halloween is the delicious sweets! Food & Wine’s Halloween Whoopie Pie recipe merges tender chocolate cake with a creamy, orange filling. This bright treat is perfect for children and adults alike.

Nothing says autumn like butternut squash. We adore this Maple-Mustard Fall Roasted Vegetable recipe by Pamela Salzman. While it’s delicious and healthy to eat, it’s also beautiful to serve – thanks to the pop of orange color.


Whether planning a tropical vacation or daydreaming about one, New York Times 36 Hours Latin America & The Caribbean is more than helpful. The colorfully illustrated book offers enticing destination spots for quick but memorable trips, as well as gorgeous photographs to inspire you.

The Netflix female ensemble series Orange is the New Black is a must watch! And, since the Emmy nominated comedy just kicked off Season 2 this year, there is plenty of time to catch up on those cozy October nights.
