September Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy October and Happy Spooky Season. I’m a couple days late, but today I’m going to be doing my September favorites. I feel like the first half of September flew by and the second half moved at a snail’s pace, but in that time there were a few things that became favorites. And with that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a couple of favorites from my September Sephora Play Box, which I’ll link below. My first being the First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer. This primer is oil free, has a matte finish, does a great job of blurring pores and is safe for sensitive skin. I don’t use matte primer a lot but this one I’ve really been liking. It does have a scent, which isn’t something I typically like, but this is a fruity/fresh smell so it’s not bad at all. First Aid Beauty makes some of my favorite skincare products and this is now one of them.

My other Play favorite is the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara in Classic Black. I honestly can’t even tell you how much I love this mascara. From the minute I put it on I was so impressed. It makes my lashes really full and voluminous and super long. Lashes for days. The formula is great because it’s really smooth, I haven’t experienced any flaking or transfer and because it’s so smooth it’s really buildable so no lashes sticking together and looking clumpy. I also really like the brush. Its nice and big and it gets all of my lashes. I highly recommend.

My second to last beauty favorite is a nail polish. It’s Sinful Colors 2621, Nakey Nay from the Naughty Nudes Collection. This polish is so pretty. It’s a bronzey almost caramel color and when the light hits it you can really see the depth and the sparkle. I’ve looked into the rest of the Naughty Nudes Collection and it all looks so nice and like I’m going to be buying more nail polish soon.

And my last beauty favorite is my new hair. I had been growing my hair for so long and I decided it was time to change it up. I knew that I wanted to cut a lot of it off, it ended up being somewhere between 12-15 inches, and I knew that I wanted to be more blonde again. So I told my hairdresser and she went from there. I didn’t ever think that I would do anything in the red family but I really like the shade she chose and overall I’m so happy with it and I feel like it brightens me up, which I’m happy about.

SEPT4

Moving on I have a TV show favorite and it’s Downton Abbey. I was scrolling through Amazon looking for something to watch after finishing a show and I came across Downton. I didn’t watch it when it was on originally but I know what a huge success it was and continues to be. I’m currently on season 3, I think I have one or two episodes left but I’m absolutely loving it. I’m excited to see the movie as well. If you’ve seen the movie, no spoilers, but I’d love to know what you thought.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, and it’s This Train from Joe Bonamassa’s Live At The Sydney Opera House album, which is available on October 25th. This is one of those really fun songs that’s like the perfect balance of bluesy and bouncy. And I’m excited to hear the rest of the album and I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great September :).

Summer and other bits haul

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing a haul. Over the past month/month and a half I’ve been doing a little shopping and picked up some fun bits and pieces that I’m excited about, so let’s get into it.

Starting with fashion, spring in the Pacific Northwest has been very cold and rainy it’s basically an extension of winter with a small handful of nice days thrown in so far. So when I do go shopping I’ve been buying for mainly summer and the first thing I bought is a black and white polka dot dress from H&M. If I can find a link for this and any other item I will put down below. I don’t normally wear a lot of dresses, I have one in my wardrobe that I really love to wear in the summer and I have a couple for dressier occasions, but that’s about it. But when I saw this one I really liked it so I went for it and I’m glad I did. The fit is fantastic and it’s one of those dresses that is super versatile. It can easily be worn as is, dressed up or dressed down.

Next I went to Forever 21 where I picked up two things and the first is a pair of shorts. Recently I’ve really been liking floral patterns and one of the things I like about these shorts is the pattern isn’t overwhelming.

And the other thing I picked up is a pair of white with black polka dot flip flops. I wear a lot of flip flops during the summer so I’m always buying new pairs.

Moving on to beauty, you guys know how the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet is one of my favorites, well, I went to put mine on last week and it broke. Having a lipstick break is always an inconvenience so I picked up another one.

The last beauty item I purchased is the Bath and Body Works Pineapple Colada Gentle Exfoliating Hand Soap with Monoi Oil. I cannot even tell you how good this smells, it’s the perfect summer smell. I hadn’t really looked into the Bath and Body Works hand soaps before but I definitely recommend them.

Second to last we have two practical things, both from Amazon. The first is an Anker phone charging cable. This is just the basic three foot cable, but Anker is a great brand for all cables/cords or anything else you might need.

And the second item is a wallet. I had my old wallet forever and kept saying that I was going to get a new one but never did. It finally quit and I couldn’t keep it closed. I found this one kind of by accident but it’s absolutely perfect. It’s turquoise with a gold bow and gold hardware and it has a ton of room on the inside.

And lastly we have the thing that I’m probably the most excited about in this whole haul. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but one of my hobbies is coin/currency collecting and I’m always on the lookout for new things to add to my collection. I was on Etsy looking for a birthday present for my dad and I came across this shop called Coin Corner and was immediately interested. I ended up finding a present for my dad, I got him a wheat penny from his birth year, and I found a steel penny from 1943 which I knew I had to have. I knew steel pennies existed but I had never seen or held one, so I did buy it and I’m so happy with it. I think it’s the coolest thing.

That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing hauls so look out for more of them in the future.

Until next time, have fun shopping and I can’t wait for warmer weather :).
