Monthly Favorites – September 2016
Today i wanted to share with you all of my favorite things from the month of September.
September is a fun month because it’s kind of a mix between two seasons – the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. You get to savor the use of your summery products for the last time and begin using your fall ones! I have a great mix of stuff this month, so lets get started!
First off is the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette. I got back into using this palette as autumn has drawn closer and I have fallen in love with it all over again! It has great stay power and pigmentation. The pink/maroon shade (bottom row, second last from the right) and the rose gold shade (bottom row, first on the left) are my favorite shades! I may even call this one of the best pallets I own!
Next is the L’Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in the shade 177 Fiery Veil. This lipstick is one of my “last taste of summer” picks. It’s a light orange lipstick and I just feel like the shade suits me. Its really easy to wear and doesn’t smudge, so I’m a fan!
This next favorite is definitely leaking into autumn. I’m moving on from the summery, pastel nails and into the deep, dark shades. My current nail polish pick is Nicole by OPI, Deeply in Love NI 044. I really love short, dark, natural nails and this vampy red does it for me!
I’ve started using the Zoella make up bag that i got for Christmas last year and I’ve been into it! I love my old bag, but after using it for literally 5 years, it has started falling apart. (FYI – my old bag is from Elizabeth Arden, apparently they make quality make up bags! So random, who knew?) The Zoella bag is spacious and a great shape. The material is easy to wipe make up messes off of and of course, I like to support Zoella, one of my favorite bloggers/Youtubers! (I am hoping to buy an item or two from her new holiday range of bath and body products. If I can get my hands on something I would love to do a review for you guys! Hopefully check back for that later.)
I have gotten into using an agenda/planner again. I used to be obsessed with them in high school and since starting the blog i have had a bit more on my plate to plan for and organize. I picked up a simple planner and have not looked back since!
My next pick is a bit of a guilty pleasure… I don’t usually drink energy drinks but I’ve been obsessed with lime flavoured Red Bull. I know they’re bad for you and I always tell my boyfriend not to drink them and here I am drinking one myself. But when I am falling asleep at 9pm on a Saturday night, I decided I needed a bit of an energy boost. I reluctantly picked up a Red Bull for the first time in years and it definitely did the trick. The lime flavour tastes exactly like rockets candy, I can’t get enough. It’s limited edition and I’ll be devastated when it is gone!
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367279/ Arrested Devlopment poster is the property of Imagine Television, The Hurwitz Company, Netflix and 20th Century Fox. I am making no particular claims about the T.V. show, production company or any related content or company
My T.V. show favorite this month is definitely Arrested Development. I have started watching the series through again and I know its an old show, but it’s such a classic and it’s absolutely hilarious. I have probably watched the entire series through at least six times and I still laugh at every joke, It’s genius!
http://www.bridgetjonesmovie.com/ Bridget Jones’s Baby movie poster is the property of Miramax, Studio Canal, Working Title and Universal Pictures. I am making no particular claims about the movie, production company or any related content or company.
My movie favorite has to be Bridget Jones’s Baby. I am a big fan of the Bridget Jones series and was so excited when a new movie came out! It was hilarious, heart warming and all around perfect. It was obviously not better then the original, but I think it was better then the squeal. Also, I promise I will NEVER give a spoiler with out a warning first, so NO spoilers here, but based on the news paper headline in the last scene, I have a strong feeling that there will be another movie added to the installment! I would be so down for that! What do you think?
https://www.amazon.ca/Girl-Lower-Back-Tattoo/dp/1501139886 The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo book cover is the property of Amy Schumer and Gallery Books. I am making no particular claims about the book, the author or the publishing company.
In August Amy Schumer came out with her debut book entitled The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo. It’s a comedic book of stories and essays about Amy’s life and i really learned a lot about her as a person and her back ground. This book was very funny, charming and well written, it was exactly what i hoped it would be. Anyone who is a fan of the movie Train Wreck and a fan of Amy Schumers will love this book! (Is it super specific that my favourite genre of literature is comedic collections of essays written by strong, funny women? Because that is what at least half of my book collection consists of.)
Let me know down in the comments what your favorite of the month was!
