September favorites! ~ 2014

Hello there! September definitely flew by! September was a fairly good month for me. I enjoyed the transition into Fall from Summer. I have a few favorites this month, and am very excited to show you!

For beauty, I tried a couple of new products this month! 
I tried the Fit me powder by Maybelline and I really like it. Nothing ever lasts all day for me, but I noticed this lasted a bit longer than my previous Rimmel Stay Matte.
Last month I manged to get my hands on another ELF brow gel and it's my favorite brow gel! It keeps my shape all day and is just amazing. it's only $1 but I can only find it in the US. :(
Lancome's Hypnose Drama mascara has a lot of volume and blackness. It works well and isn't too difficult to remove. 
I just started using the Benefit Hello Flawless oxygen Wow foundation and I like it! it lasts fairly long and looks flawless!
There's a couple of shades form the NAKED 2 palette that I've been using ALL month!

I've been using FOXY all over the lid, inner corner & brow bone with a touch of TEASE in the crease. It gives the perfect neutral matte eye-look, I love it!

After I shave my legs, I like to apple the Delon+ coconut body butter. It smells so good and leaves my legs feeling silky smooth. I get really dry skin in the Fall & Winter so this really helps.
I've been switching between detangler and this Rusk brilliance leave in conditioner. It smells nice and detangler my hair while adding moisture!
And lastly, I started using my ghd straightener again this month. It takes a while to straighten but the result is worth it! It also does nice flat iron curls!

Those are all of my favorites for the month! I hope you enjoyed! :)

Monthly empties ~ September 2014

Time is flying and September came and went so fast! Anyways, with the end of the month comes my empties! I actually finished quite a few different things this month so it should be a bit more interesting.

Herbal Essences Hydra-licious volume boost shampoo: This smells so good and I actually noticed my hair to be a bit less flat!

Aveeno pure renewal conditioner: This smoothed my hair and was a fairly average conditioner!

Dove dry shampoo: This is, as I've said, my favorite dry shampoo and I will always repurchase!

Neutrogena naturals cleanser: This wasn't my favorite but it worked alright. Probably won't repurchase.

DIY BB cream: I made my own BB cream and it worked alright but not the best!

Kirkland makeup wipes: I always use these because they're cheap!

Colgate Winterfresh toothpaste: This tastes so good! I love it!

Simple makeup wipes: I really like these since they're thin and not too wet!

Crest 3D white glamorous white: I noticed a bit of a difference with this toothpaste but my teeth still aren't completely white. I did repurchase though.

That's all!

Spice up your room... for Fall!

I love decorating my room according to the seasons and fall is my favorite for room decor! It just creates a warm and cozy atmosphere! I usually get the majority of my decor at the dollar store since it's cute & cheap! Plus it's only up for a couple of months so I don't feel the need to shell out tons of money on it. Some of my decor is from past years and I also made a trip to Dollar Tree. Enjoy and I hope this gives you some inspiration!

1. Add decorative pillows!
Adding fall-colored or fall-themed pillows to your bed can make the world of difference to your normal room

2. Add statement pieces to plain shelves!
Adding a statement piece like this glitter pumpkin from Dollarama, can jazz up your space and add some color to a dull & plain space. 

3. Bring on the candy!
Who doesn't like a bit of candy? Adding a small dish-full, such as this one from the dollar section at Target, can allow guests to grab a treat or even just look cute as a decoration.

4. Play around with different colors and styles!

This owl from Dollarama is a bit darker and not as "cute" per say. It's add a bit of variation to the room.

5. Fall-themed bouquets!
I love placing fake bouquets around the room. It adds a ton of color and brings so much to the theme! The firs tone is from Dollarama and the one above from Dollar Tree.

6. The finishing touches!
Small & subtle accents are your best friend! Scatter leaves, or add small pumpkin. Hang a wreath or a sign. Have fun with it!

That's it! Enjoy decorating :)

Happy Fall!

Fall is by far my favorite season! I love the cooler weather, sweaters, warm drinks, movies and so much more. The colors are gorgeous and everything about fall is so amazing! I can't wait for October because I have so many fall themed posts planned! Today's post is kind of just a jumble of different things, mostly some photos and even a fall tag! Enjoy :)

The I Heart Fall TAG!

1. Favorite Fall lip product?
The Wet n' Wild Mega last Lipstick in Bare it all. This color is so beautiful! It's a slightly darker nude and shows up as nice neutral color on me!

2. Favorite Fall Nail Polish?
China Glaze's Velvet Bow or Charmed I'm sure. One is a deep oxblood and the other is a deep purple!

3. Favorite Starbucks Fall Drink?
I've got to say Pumpkin Spice Latte because I've never tried anything else!

4. Favorite Fall Candle?

I don't ever burn candles! :(

5. Favorite Fall Scarf or accessory
My knit, burgundy circle scarf or my burnt orange scarf!

6. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze?

 Haunted house, but a corn maze sounds fun too!

7. Favorite Halloween movie?
 For a children's movie Hocus Pocus, but for regular movies, I haven't really seen many.

8. Favorite candy to eat on Halloween?
 Mini Mars bars or Mini Twix bars!

9. What are you dressing up as for Halloween?!

 I have no idea! :(

 10. What is your Favorite thing about Fall?
The atmosphere. The cool weather, warm colors and all of the fun things that come with fall!

If you'd like to check out my Fall Pinterest, I've just started it so I'm still pinning new stuff!

I can't wait for the rest of Fall, enjoy yours!

Summer reflection

Today (or is it tomorrow?) is the first day of Fall, so I thought I would share some photos from my Summer. The highlight of my Summer was probably San Diego but I've already showed most of my photos from there so I thought I'd give a peek into my life. I was hoping for this to be a fun little post so I hope you like it!

Lot's of shopping and change rooms!

Shopping and swatching!

My Summer was fairly laid back, but those were some highlights! I hope you had a great Summer and here's to a great Autumn!
