September Favorites | 2015

September is over and a new month ensues. Before we leave the beginning of Fall behind, let's look back and share what's been in our handbags. I'll go first :-)

This month has been a whirlwind for me because I've been filling my time up with work.  Between my daytime job, Youtube, blogging, my family, and the occasional spur-of-the-moment audition, I haven't had time for much else.

I've opted for comfort over heels and have incorporated basic "hacks" to maintain a polished look.  If you prefer video format, I've got you covered. If you want a quick bullet point approach, keep reading.

Lip Service

I haven't had time for elaborate eyeshadow lately. My quick fix has been adding a dark lip stain like Bite beauty's Cashmere Lipcreme in Port. If I'm down for more shine, I'll put on NYX butter lip gloss in Spice Cake and look pulled together without all the fuss.


I love this necklace. I can put it on with any outfit and instantly, I look like I tried. I mix it with silver, I put it on with a plain T shirt, I dress it up-it really doesn't matter. I got this on from Akira a  long time ago, but I found a similar Evil Eye Necklace here.

I caved and got the new iPhone 6s Plus. It's a hefty investment, so I needed a case that not only showed off the beautiful Champagne color, but kept it protected. Kate Spade to the rescue! Check it out here.

I love fragrance. It's the icing to a fabulous cupcake and always makes me feel great. I signed up for a monthly subscription of fragrance through Scentbird. It's pretty dope, actually. Each month I get a 30 day supply of designer fragrance for $14.95 a month. That's it! I get luxury for a fraction of the price and I rarely ever use up the full bottle in a month. If I get a scent I don't like, I give it away and try the next one. It's a win, win for me. Check it out and sign up HERE for more information!

These shoes are my lifesaver! I have worn them so much this past summer and will continue wearing them for Fall. It's strange, actually. I've never been a boat shoe kind woman. I got them as a gift, and found myself wearing them almost everyday. I get compliments all the time, and I'm not required to dress up to wear them. Thank you Tommy Hilfiger!! 


I've also been moisturizing my hair with Shea Moisture's Curl and Style Milk. I talk about it a lot, I know. It just moisturizes my hair so WELL! Here's my Nighttime Hair Routine, for more details on how I use it. 

Okay, your turn. What have you been loving lately? Don't be shy ;-)
