Happy October 1st!! It's my favorite month of the year. Every weekend is jam packed with so many fun activities, I can hardly wait! Then my birthday month & Thanksgiving, and finally Christmas.
September went by very slow and I will gladly welcome if the next three months of 2015 go by slowly too. I can't believe in two months I'll be 23 and in three months, 2015 is over. The year went by fast and so much has changed, yet so much has stayed the same.
I really do come alive in the fall -- ugh I love it so much!
September was a good month for favorites -- here they are!
//Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Illuminating moisturizer: I got this on sale during the Sephora Summer Sale and I have not stopped using it. I wanted to try a Tarte face product and it certainly did not disappoint. This is a light weight BB cream that has illuminating particles to make your skin glow and look healthy. It doesn't provide too much coverage but perfect to even out your skin and give you a little something. The way I've been using it is by mixing it into my foundation. Adding a little bit of this BB cream gives my skin a lit from within glow, and really makes my skin look awesome. I've gotten so many compliments when I'm wearing this, I haven't stopped!
//Simple Micellar Water: I feel like I've talked about this before but according to my blog history, I have not. I've gone through three bottles of this stuff in recent months and I'm kind of obsessed. Micellar water is all the rage in the beauty world nowadays and for good reason. It's supercharged water that will remove makeup and clean your face without leaving any residue behind. It doesn't even have to be washed or wiped off afterwards! I still prefer using makeup wipes to remove my makeup at the end of the day but this is good to get stubborn eye makeup off after the fact. My essential use for this? I wash my face with it in the morning. It speeds up my morning routine and I've seen an improvement in my skin since doing that. I just put some on a cotton round and wipe along my face, and I'm good to go. It's amazing!
//Buxom Full On Lip Cream in Dolly: I was picking up my First Aid Beauty Blemish Patrol Pads in Sephora and I felt the need to buy something else. I wanted a treat and it took me an hour to settle on this lip gloss from Buxom. I had a mini Buxom lip gloss years ago and I loved it. I loved the tingly feeling of it on my lips and I've only heard good things since so I figured I'd get the full size. I knew one of the most famous shades were Dolly, a nude, mauve pink, and I instantly fell in love. I've worn it so much since and it's changing my feelings toward lip gloss. It's not sticky, great for every day, and I love the tingly, lip plumping feeling. It feels like I'm eating a mint, that's how fresh it leaves my mouth & lips. It's so weird but amazing.
//Face Masks: If you haven't realized it from this post, I've continued my love affair with face masks. I have so many different types and I love each and every one of them. I use them every 2-3 days and I think they do make a difference. They're so relaxing, easy, and fun to use- it's like your own personal spa!
//Macbook Air: I gushed about my new computer in this Links to Love post this month and my goodness, I cannot get enough. I just purchased this laptop case, and I look for any excuse to use it. It's so small and versatile and easy to use. It feels so good to have a Macbook again & I love it so much that I sometimes miss it when I go to work. I'm insane but hey, a girl needs her laptop.
//Chloe + Isabel jewelry: I gushed about this company in the beginning of the month and I've been wearing it nonstop. These pieces are pretty much the only ones I wear and I just ordered another ring yesterday. I get so many compliments on the pieces, and they're so simple and dainty, they are perfect for work & everyday wear!
Whew! That was a lot of favorites but as we get into the fall season, I'd say these posts may get longer and longer. Like I've said, I come alive in the fall ;)
What did everyone else love this month?
