It's time for my September favorites! I had to take these pictures on my new screened in back porch, because that's definitely a favorite! I'll share pictures once I've finished decorating. It's still lacking in the pretty department! :)
They might not photograph well, but let me tell you, these might just go down as the comfiest shoes I've ever owned! I LOVED my Tory Carolines, but they took a while to break in and they got scuffed up pretty bad, so they had to go last year. I want another pair, but until I order a new pair I needed some comfy shoes for work. I found these Lucky Brand flats are TJ MAXX and fell in love! Want to know the best part? They were $30 at TJMAXX and I went to a local department store and found the exact same pair for $60! #score!
Essie's "carry on" from a winter collection a few years back has always been a favorite of mine, but when I went to open it early this month, I discovered it had dried up :( Not to worry! I found a new fav in "In the Lobby", which is part of Essie's Fall 2015 line! Love!
Random, but I discovered I love almonds this month. I always thought I hated them, but I had never tried the roasted and salted ones. I guess I thought that all almonds tasted like the no salt ones my mom always bought. These are delicious!!! I love the Archer Farms ones from Target, but these from Publix are great too! FYI: the Nice ones from Walgreens don't have nearly enough salt on them!
Merle Norman is a southern company, so many of you might not recognize this brand. I will not wear any other powder than Merle Norman's, and their lip pencil pluses are wonderful, too! I rediscovered my absolute favorite from the company "Sugared Plum" I know you are suppose to see the liner when you wear lip liner, and you definitely can with this, but I still love it!
Another product that I rediscovered this month was Chi's silk infusion. I use to use this all the time and stopped for some reason. After my blonde appointment this month, I ran to Ulta to get some shampoo and conditioner and saw that they had all Chi Products on sale (Buy 2, Get One Free) so I decided to splurge. I ended up really loving the shampoo and conditioner. In fact, as I type this I realize I should have included those two products in my favorites from this month!
This candle. Oh my word. I LOVE this candle from Anthropology! If it wasn't a $30 candle, I would buy enough to burn all year around. It is expensive, but the upside is that it does really last a long time. I think the burning time is 100 hours.... I use it sparingly, but I love it!
The leopard scarf is also a favorite. It's from Old Navy last year, but they have a similar one here.
Even though this is a favorite (and I do love it, don't get me wrong) it doesn't hold a candle to the Tree Hut scrub. The St. Ives Even and Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub is the best drugstore scrub that I've tried in a while. I still swear by the Tree Hut ones those! This one smells great!
I recieved a body serum in my Ipsy last month from some brand I had never heard of, but I fell in love with how the serum made my skin feel. I went to Ulta and asked the girl if they had it, and she swore up and down that there was no such thing as a body serum. Finally, after 20 minutes of her searching online, she discovered they did in fact carry one. This one is great and smells even better. You skin will feel amazing after you use it! :)
You can read my September Book Review here, but Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling was my favorite book this year! Loved it!!!
