September Favorites

28 Sep

Somehow another month has come to an end. It may just be me, but I feel like we are moving at light speed towards Christmas! Now, that’s not exactly an unwelcome thing since by Christmas I will have finished my last semester of schoolwork before student teaching and will be one step closer to becoming a real adult with a grown up job. By Christmas, I will have served as a bridesmaid in my lovely cousin’s wedding and had a birthday (I’ll be 25 – yikes). Though all these things are wonderful, they just seem to be approaching so quickly!

Anyway, all of this is to say that since another month has passed us by it’s time for some monthly favorites! Check out my new video to see what I’ve been loving this month and be sure to watch until the very end for some silly moments between me and my dog Trudy.

I hope you have all had a great month and can we all just put some vibes out there for a slower month in October? That would be great!



Lush Sakura Bath Bomb

26 Sep

I adore a good bath product. Nothing sounds more relaxing to me than a long bath with some floral bath products and a good magazine. For this reason, I have an unhealthy addiction to Lush products. A couple of weeks ago I went to Lush and picked up a few products (mentioned here in my Fall Haul video), including this Sakura bath bomb that I had never tried before. Lush describes it as being a nod to blooming cherry trees in Japan with scents of jasmine and mimosa included. Now, cherry blossoms are one of my favorite flowers and I’m a sucker for  jasmine scented things, so this seemed right up my alley. And I have to say it did not disappoint. This bath bomb made my bath smell so lovely and floral. It does not contain any glitter and does not color the bathwater – so if glittery or colorful baths aren’t your thing then you’ll love this. It retails for $6.35 so it is a bit of a splurge, but if you’re in the mood to spoil yourself then I would definitely suggest this.

What are you favorite Lush products? Do you like the bath bombs?

MAC Lipstick in Rebel

24 Sep

I have recently been straying from my typical nude lip choices and going for some brighter shades. One of those shades has been MAC’s lipstick in Rebel. This shade is described my MAC as a “midtonal cream plum”, but I don’t think that does it justice. It looks almost black in the tube, but I promise it’s not that scary and dark. It’s somewhere between a plum and a berry color and since it’s a satin finish, it’s very buildable. I love wearing this shade with a neutral eye and a casual outfit. It’s extremely versatile though and I think it is going be an absolute staple for me this fall.

Do you like these sorts of colors? What’s your favorite MAC lipstick shade for fall?

Video: What’s in My Bag

Hello lovely readers!

Some of my favorite beauty videos on Youtube are the “what’s in my bag” videos, so I decided I should make my own. If you are interested in what I keep in my bag, have a look at the video above.
