September Favorites

I can't believe September is already over and we are heading into October and then we'll blink and it will be the holidays! This part of the year seems to fly by always. September has been a busy month, full of apartment hunting, collaborations, and brunches! We finally found an apartment and we couldn't be more excited to move! I'll keep you all posted with all that fun on my IG stories :) I'm so excited for all the fun things October holds and I'll be sharing all the event on my blog and IG! For now here are all the things I've been loving in the month of September!


Beauty Products:

In September I've been playing with all kinds of fall colors and pulling out my richer tones. I've been living for the L'oreal Infalliable Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick, this is probably one of the most comfortable liquid lip I've ever tried! The product lasts all day through eating and drinking without ever re-applying! There's a great range of colors and they are perfect for this season! Another beauty favorite as always is colourpop, I've been obsessed with the "I Think I Love You" palette as well as the "Yes, Please!" palette both are great for everyday and can create tons of looks! One more essential that has been my go to this month is the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation! I love how it looks on my skin and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything and they have tons of shades!


Skin Care Products:

Along with my products from last month these are some of my must have skin care products for this month. Formula 10.0.6 is one of my go to's for masks especially and I love the "Get your Glow On" peel off mask! Next up my favorite cream cleanser ever is from Aveeno, this one is my ride or die I use it every night before I got to bed to help keep my complexion blemish free and skin feeling clean! Finally for skin care I love the Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic To Go Pads these are great for everyday and especially great for travel! 


Fashion & Accessories:

I love rich tones for fall, plum, mustard, forest green, they just really scream fall! Old Navy as always is my go to they have tons of great fall looks right now with a variety of beautiful colors and pieces to choose from! Also my favorite earrings all month have been these simply gold oval hoops. I love gold for fall to go with all the warm tones so these are my favorite touch to any fall look! Next up is this stunning LC by Lauren Conrad bag from Kohl's. I again love the mustard color which is still a neutral for fall and the detail on the bag is perfection! Lastly, booties are a given for the fall season and Sonoma at Kohls always has the best ankle boots at killer prices! They go great with every look and are so easy to wear especially here in FL! 


Those are my September favorites! I hope you enjoyed and please let me know your favorite below! Anything I need to test out let me know!

For hair care this month, I've been loving this shampoo and conditioner combo from Garnier! My hair has never felt so healthy and smooth. The scent is amazing and the products leave your hair so shiny and smelling like coconut, not to mention these are affordable and can be found at Target and several other retailers. Shop these below!

For skin care these have been my go to products lately! My skin is super sensitive so all these products are super gentle on the skin and constantly in reach. I use the cleanser, micellar water, and mosturizer everyday and change up the other products depending what my skin needs. Again super affordable products that are easy to find and are linking below for you!

Next these two have been some of my favorite body products this month! I'm obsessed with the shea sugar scrub to exfoliate the skin! As well as the bath and body works ultra shea body cream in practically any scent. I have 3 of them all over the house, they are so creamy and luxurious, they are a must have!

As for some of my favorites in the makeup department these are the stand outs this month! Colourpop has been killing it launching tons of new products so they are in here with a few things this month! I've been living for their setting and priming sprays, I can not do my makeup without them! Also the highlight palette is like no other and the price is right for 6 highlights! Next up for eyes I'm obsessed with the Jaclyn Hill Palette from Morphe! Jaclyn killed it with these shadows, its the one palette you need in your collection! My favorite blush this month has been the Kylie Cosmetics blush in the shade Barely Legal, it's the perfect tone for summer and will take me into fall, I love it! Finally these mascaras have been the best and the combo is everything you want! L'oreal's Lash Paradise is perfection for everyday, it gives you the perfect lashes. For a little bit something extra I use the Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara it gives you something more and is perfect for lengthening those lashes! 

I highly recommend checking out reviews.com list of best mascaras HERE, this will help you find a mascara that is right for you!

Formula 10.0.6

I have to start with Formula 10.0.6. This brand has really blown me out of the water with their products. The quality is amazing and the products do exactly what they say! You can shop these products online as well as find them in local retail stores, such as Ulta and Old Navy. I also really appreciate that the brand uses fresh, natural ingredients specifically formulated to promote clear and healthy skin, isn't that what we all strive for?! Formula 10.0.6 graciously sent me these products to try and I can honestly tell you I am really impressed with this brand! The masks especially have to be my favorites! I've been using these products for about a month and love what they have done for my skin!


J'aime My...

J'aime My...

Next up is The brand J'aime My... this is a new hair line that is carried exclusively at Ulta and was created by Franck Provost, one of the top hair stylists in the world. First I die for the packaging, I love the foiled look, I also love the shape of the bottle, guaranteed you will not waste any product! I've been using these products for a few weeks and love how my hair feels and the scent is like I just left the salon! These products are great and perfect for all hair types! Thank you also to J'aime for sending me some products!
