Monthly Muse: September 2020 Favorites

I can't believe tomorrow is October 1st! September feels like it was just getting started and all of sudden, we're a month away from Halloween. It was another really difficult month but I feel so much better now than I did at the beginning of September. I hope that it only goes up from here... but with Covid still running around and the election almost a month away, it seems like we have a little more ways to go.

How to Survive Allergy Season

 *I did a similar post back in 2015 but it was time for an update! However, I still stand by all those tips and will mention some in this post as well.

The start of a new season is always my favorite time of the year. Even though Fall is my favorite and I worship the autumn, I love any new season, the start of Spring & Summer included. However, with those new seasons comes my least favorite thing in the world: allergies.

I have had seasonal, pollen allergies since I was a little girl. When I was a child, it was only itchy and watery eyes that bothered me but somewhere in my late teenage years, sneezing, coughing, and headaches became an issue too. I was fully cursed with seasonal allergies on all ends.

Manicure Monday: OPI "My Italian is a Little Rusty"

 I didn' think I had any new polishes up my sleeve but I was wrong. When I went to paint my nails last weekend, I realized that I had a new nail polish I had been saving for a rainy day. I purchased it last month in preparation for Fall and here we are, in Fall!

OPI's fall collection is titled "Muse of Milan" and all the shades are stunning for the autumnal season but the one that caught my eye was obviously the burnt orange/brown shade called "My Italian is a Little Rusty". It's fitting for me since I haven't brushed up on my Italian since junior year of high school.

Royal Round Up, Vol 3: Week 39

 Welp, another week, another gross miscarriage of justice for Black people. I'm devastated for Breonna Taylor, for her family, for the people of Louisville and for the world. If it's exhausting for me, I can't imagine how exhausting it is for Black people and POC. Please, just remember to vote AND pay attention to your local elections/politics. While the President is responsible for a lot, it comes down to your local government and that is where real change begins.

In other news, the week was hard for a multitude of other reasons. I think it was just the normal Covid slump and feeling like the world is crashing... 2020, right? 

However, I will be having some sense of normalcy this weekend and hopefully going apple picking. A little fresh air really does the body and mood wonders!
