September Favorites // 2015

September has come and gone… can you believe it? It’s my birthday month!! September went out with a cool, autumnal boom. As I’m typing this, I’m curled up on the couch with my boys and wrapped in a warm blanket. The hardest part about the end of summer and beginning of fall is getting used to darker evenings and mornings. When it’s dark when I wake up and dark soon after I get home, I find it hard to find motivation to be productive after work. Alas, this has a been a month of transition and it shows in my monthly favorites:

iPhone 6 – I picked up a new phone a few weeks ago after I shattered the screen to my beloved yellow iPhone 5c. Thankfully I was close to an upgrade so was able to borrow Chris’s old phone before getting this beautiful gold iPhone

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat – I had already purchased another Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush and wanted to get one that was a bit more vibrant. These blushes really are beautiful and I’m so happy I got another. I wear them almost everyday

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer – Highlighters have become one of my favorite beauty products. I absolutely love the love of a luminous face and this highlighter provides some serious brightness without a lot of product

Kiehl’s ‘Midnight Recovery’ Concentrate – I picked this up after seeing lots of people talking about it online. I’m trying to take caring for my skin more seriously and this product makes it easy because I love to put it on. The lavender scent is heavenly and the consistency isn’t too heavy or sticky

Stila Kitten – I’ve been wearing this just about everyday usually alone but sometimes with a darker, matte shade in the crease. It’s brightening yet subtle

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream – I’ve always hated foundations and the feeling of anything thick on my face so this product is perfect. I find myself grabbing more than any other base I own and I find that it evens out my skin tone without feeling like I’m wearing too much makeup

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Honey – This balm is absolutely perfect. It provides color to my colorless lips without feeling sticky or goopy. It’s a neutral shade that is wearable for everyday and the color does last quite a while on the lips

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – This stuff is the bomb. I love the consistency and staying power. I feel like it’s the first concealer I’ve used that actually covers stuff up. I’ve been fighting skin issues all month and this concealer has made me feel a little bit better

Nike ‘Internationalist’ Sneaker – I love these shoes. I was always self-conscious about wearing sneakers with shorts or skinny jeans because I feel that I have huge feet but I’ve gotten a little more comfortable with them. I bought these in July and didn’t really start wearing them until the end of August but I wear them almost every weekend when I’m not working. They are super comfortable and go with almost everything

Amika Un.done Texture Spray – This is my first dry texture spray. The first thing I want to say about it is I absolutely love the scent. It smells light and floral and I find myself sniffing my hair throughout the day when I use it. I usually spray it after curling my hair to make freshly washed hair feel a little less slick and to give me more volume

  1. I’ve had my iPhone 6 for almost a year now and I still love it so much. I especially love the gold and white combo! 🙂
