Monthly Muse: September 2019 Favorites

I cannot believe September is over! The month went by so fast, faster than usual I think, probably due to the fact that my long bout of unemployment finally came to an end and I made my way back into corporate America.

It's been a truly exciting, life-changing month and I'm excited for all that is to come in the last few months of 2019. I'm thrilled that tomorrow starts my favorite month and I will honor October by watching the first viewing of Hocus Pocus tonight while tucked in bed, with a newly decorated Halloween room and all my fall candles.

*If you're looking for your own Halloween art to decorate your home, might I suggest my Etsy shop?

Shameless promotion aside, let's dive right into everything I loved in the month of September.

Bliss Makeup Melt Remover Gel

Last month I won a beauty giveaway from Carly Hill (one of my favorite bloggers) and inside the package was this Makeup Melt Remover from Bliss. I've become obsessed with Bliss over the course of the past few months and had my eye on this eye makeup remover so I was thrilled that I won it! I've been looking for a new eye makeup remover that wouldn't burn or irritate my eyes and this is it. You don't need any water for this either; just pump a little jelly onto a cotton pad, swish it around and viola, the eye makeup is gone! I rinse quickly with water but that's my personal preference; it removes everything beautifully and is very aesthetically pleasing. The price is right with this  

Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick

This isn't a new favorite but a recently rediscovered one. I've been obsessed with the Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick again! This has been my go-to foundation for getting ready in the morning before work. It's quick, simple, and leaves my skin looking very smooth and even. It's so much easier than a cream or liquid foundation and my makeup doesn't run or come off when I start to sweat (it's been so hot in NYC lately, especially on my way to the train in the morning). If you've been thinking about this foundation for a while, it definitely lives up to the hype and I couldn't recommend it enough.

Stoney Clover Mini Pouch

I have wanted a Stoney Clover pouch for years and always hesitate. They are very expensive but they are so cute; I'm also such a sucker for pouches and makeup bags. I use a pouch every single day, no matter what bag I'm using so I knew that I would get a lot of use out of a Stoney Clover one. I've had my eye on a 'prescription or first aid' patched pouch because I just love the cheekiness of it. Plus, I carry a lot of pills/first aid items on a daily basis so I knew it would be a perfect match. Well, just my luck that they were having a flash sale at the beginning of the month and I picked up the RX silver pouch. Oh my god! So much fits inside this little bag! I fit more in this than any other pouch I have and it never really expands/loses its shape, it's truly magical! I carry this with me every day to work and keep all my essentials in it. It takes up minimal space in your bag but yet you can keep everything you need inside. If you've been on the fence, you won't regret spending the money on a mini pouch. I'm already looking at purchasing more. This is going to be my new addiction!

It's a small but mightly favorites post this month but sometimes you just need to go with quality over quantity!
