What’s HOT/What’s NOT: September 2010

As the temperatures drop slightly and the leaves begin changing colors (except in Florida, where we will experience one or two cold fronts in December and January), we move closer and closer to the beginning of the fall season. This passage of time, of course, brings with it new trends in entertainment, fashion and the ways we go about our daily lives. So what’s new and exciting in September? Find out here! πŸ™‚
