September Favorites!

September is almost over which means October (my favorite month like, EVER!) is next but I'll be honest, I love everything about the fall months. From pumpkin scented candles to Halloween themed make-up palettes, fall covers it all!

Beauty Favorites:
Maybelline New York Mineral Power Bronzer in Sunset Bronze - Buy
With the cooler days coming up, it's hard to fool everyone that you've been laying out in the sun all day. It's even harder to have a light skin tone and find a bronzer that doesn't make you look like an Oompa Loompa. Maybelline's Mineral Power Bronzer is where it's at! I love that it gives me a natural bronze without looking cakey. With absolutely no talc, preservatives, oils and fragrance in it, this bronzer is also great for girls with sensitive skin!

Maybelline Expert Eyeshadow Quad in Enchanted Forest - Buy
I've been using this like crazy this month! This, to me, is the perfect eyeshadow quad for fall. It has your chocolate, hunter green, gold and a light gold - all the necessities for a gorgeous autumn eye. Mine has somewhat rubbed off but you can kind of see that each shadow is labelled to help you out. The gold on top is for your lid, the green for your crease, the lighter gold for brow bone and the chocolate for your crease.

Urban Decay Naked 2 PaletteBuy
This palette is back on my favorites again! I really believe any girl that loves anything from a smokey eye to a natural eye needs to have this palette in their life! It's so versatile. My favorite shadows this month were: Chopper, Pistol and Busted.

EOS Limited Edition Alice in Wonderland Lip Balms - Buy
I'm a sucker for anything Disney so naturally I fell hook-line-and-sinker for these! The flavors are Bluberry Potion, Sweet Vanilla Nonsense and (my personal fave) Watermelon Wonderland!

EOS Alice in Wonderland Lip Balms - Lovin' those Mickey Mouse ears! 

Maybelline New York One by One in Satin Black - Buy
I never realized how much of a freak I am for Maybelline until now! I'm the queen of mascara. I love nothing more than having big, voluminous lashes - just without all the yucky clumps! One by One goes on very smooth and I've yet to experience any clumping! I also love this because it's safe to wear with contacts and I've experienced no irritation wearing this.

Nail Favorites: 
Migi Nail Art Set #101 - Buy
Ever since I did the Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge, I've been on the look out for really good nail art pens and stripers for a good price. I had given up all hope until my boyfriend and I were wondering around the Durham Fair here and saw a Migi Nail Art booth. It's a pen/brush with two different colors on the ends. Uncap the top, it's a pen. Unscrew the top and it's a brush! I also really like that you get "free" (you pay S&H but still) refills and replacements. I'm sure you'll see this being used in the next nail art challenge I do!


Gradient using China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, Funky Fingers Mrs. Mint and Essie Playdate. I love this!

butterLONDON Cheeky Chops - Swatched and reviewed here. I love how fun and bright this polish is!

My neon sugar-spun nails for the Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge seen here. This challenge pushed me to try things I've done before including this sugar spun technique! 

My back-to-school nails for the Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge here. Let's talk about how cute that Converse is on my pinky!

Pomegranate Lacquer Midnight Satellite swatched and reviewed here. Pomegranate Lacquers new fall collection is to die for! I especially love Midnight Satellite!

Serum No. 5 Girl's Gotta Eat swatched and reviewed here. The perfect gold to bling your fingers out with!

Non-Beauty Favorites:

Stache Sunglasses Buy
Unfortunately, I couldn't find the blinged out version online, but I do know this one is in stores! Months ago, I fell in love with these at Hot Topic. My friend ended up buying me them for my birthday and I;ve worn them ever since! 

Love Earrings - Buy
I can't remember where I first saw these. Probably Pinterest. But I had to have them! I searched high-and-low and ended up finding them on eBay! How cute are these? 

Love Earrings

Bath & Body Works PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel in Pumpkin and Bat Bite (Apple) - Buy
OKAY. Let's talk about how obsessed I am with these. A.) I love Halloween-themed anything and B.) I have since gone back to Bath & Body Works three times to stock up on extras! Pumpkin smells delicious - like warm pumpkin pie and Bat Bite smells like a yummy apple. I'm 100% I'll be going back for more! B&BW PocketBac hand gels are currently five for $5!

M&M's White Chocolate Candy Corn - Buy at Walmart, drug stores, etc.
I have a love/hate relationship with these but they're on my favorites nonetheless. The problem with these is that they're so good but so sweet. I could only handle like, half the bag before passing them off to my boyfriend. Summary: They taste like candy coated frosting M&M's. They're that sweet!

Vaseline Lip Therapy - Buy
The picture doesn't show you how tiny and cute this is! It's Vaseline for your lips in a .25 ounce version of the original. I swear by using Vaseline for chapstick to keep your lips soft in the cold weather!

Puncture RingBuy
At first glance, I'm sure this looks like a weird torture device but it's actually the coolest ring ever! I just love the illusion that it's punctured my fingers. It's from OASAP and I love it. The only issue I had with OASAP was that it took about three weeks to get here since they're shipping from Hong Kong. A review of this ring and the earrings I also got will be up soon!

Puncture Ring - How sick does that look!?

Favorite Songs:
One More Night - Maroon 5
Gangnam Style - PSY ( Go ahead, judge me!)

  2. Everytime you do these posts, I go "wow, we have so much in common". First off, I am addicted to EOS lip balms. I have almost every single kind. I'm a EOS lip balm hoarder and I'm not afraid to admit it! ;) Second, I absolutely love your nail entries for the contest especially the neon sugar-spun nails! Can I hire you to be my personal manicurist? First thing I want you to do is that awesome sugar-spun design! I doubt any nail place by me would be able to do that as well as you. The Gradient nails are amazing as well. The back to school nails are too adorable!

    I love the PocketBacs by B&BW.

    I don't know if you use Febreze (random, I know) but for the fall they have this awesome scent: Pumpkin Harvest. It literally smells like a pumpkin pie is baking in your oven when you spray it. I'm going to stockpile them because they are only a seasonal scent.

    And I know I can't really hire you as my personal manicurist *a girl can dream, right ;)* but I wish we lived closer so we can hang out and do our nails! <-- Does that sound as corny as I think it does? lol. =X

    1. AWWW :) I've just recently started getting into EOS balms. Thank you so much! I'm so happy you like them. LMAO YES I'LL BE YOUR PERSONAL MANICURIST! That sugar-spun one was by far the coolest thing I've ever done. I would've never thought to try that technique out.

      I'm obsessed with PockBacs and it's becoming a huge collection now. LMAO.

      OMG. I'm going to have to run out to Target or somewhere and look for that. That sounds so amazing. I wish pumpkin scents weren't as seasonal as they are. I would love my house to smell all pumpkin-y year round :)

      Aww, no, that sounds awesome! LMAO. Most of my friends don't really paint their own nails; they get them done professionally with tips and everything.
