September Favorites | 2016 | BØRNS, Ballet Flats, and Trader Joe's...


Ok y'all, I know I said I was going to get better about making regular posts and then I failed, but I'm going to stick to posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays now because I have a ton of time on those days (#college!!) so thanks for sticking with me y'all!!

September has been a month of just crazy change and also JOY for me.  My first full month of college has been a lot of growing up, and also a lot of learning about who I am and becoming more confident in that, which is probably cliché but it's so so real!  As far as favorites, I have a very wide array of them this month sooo, let's dive right on in!! 

1 // Psalm 18:19

"He led me to a place of safety, for he delights in me."  I have been really struck by this message this month, especially because of the last part, for he delights in me.  Honestly, how beautiful is that message?  God doesn't just like us, or accept us, or put up with us, y'all he DELIGHTS in us.  Like, he loves us so much he would do anything for us, because he literally rejoices over us.  Y'all, when we wake up in the morning, he is overjoyed to just see us and be with us, and that is just so beautiful to me because 900% of the time I feel like I don't even like myself that much, much less that anyone else likes me, so when I read that God delights, delights, in me, it's just life changing to me!!

2 // Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

I have used this stuff for about a year-ish now, and I just got a new tube (bottle? I feel like tube sounds weird lol) of it before school, and I was reminded all over again of how much I like it.  It honestly makes you look so so super awake and just with it you know?  Love x1000!

3 // BØRNS

I don't know if everyone listens to them and I'm just behind the trend, but y'all this band is so so good.  They sing "Electric Love," which I know was really big a few months ago, but the whole album (which is called Dopamine btw) is just super good, and it's the kind of music that just puts you in a cheerful mood, which is my favorite kind of jam!!

4 // Laura Mercier Radiance Primer

My dear mum gave this to me, and y'all it's honestly so SO good.  I'm honestly not a huge primer person, just because to me I've never used one where I necessarily saw any sort of difference in my makeup, but this one really makes for a noticeable difference.  I find that it just makes my makeup look so so flawless, even when I just use a BB cream overtop it, and I just love the glow it gives, because who doesn't love a glow nowadays right?

5 // Lace Up Ballet Flats

This is prolly my favorite shoe trend like ever, there's just something so feminine and fun about them you know?  I have a brown pair from Target, and then an olive pair from Old Navy, and my friends make fun of me because I usually alternate colors throughout the week and literally only wear my lace up flats.  I mean... the obsession is real y'all!!! 

6 // Trader Joe's Skincare

Ok, I know this sounds weird but y'all trust me, if you haven't tried Trader Joe's lotion and shampoo and other bits, do it ASAP because 1/ it's cheap and 2 / it's just like so good.  My favorites are the Tea Tree Tingle shampoo (soo refreshing smelling and makes your hair feel so nice and fresh) and the Coconut Body Butter... ok y'all, this body butter smells SO freaking good.  If you like the smell of coconut literally drop what you're doing and go buy this because omigoodness it smells like heaven wow I'm just obsessed with it you guys.

And that my friends is my very random and rambly compilation of September faves!! I decided as a challenge to myself I'm going to start doing more makeup tutorials, so stay tuned for that friends!! Hope you all have a very lovely, cozy, autumnal day today!! Talk to y'all very soon!!
