I have so many favorites this season and I am way too excited to share them with all of you! I love trying new products because I find that there are always new things to fall in love with - whether it’s in the realm of fashion, makeup, home, or anything in between. So here’s to autumn and all of my autumn favorites!
I have been absolutely loving this eye shadow palette for the past couple of months. While I hadn’t started exploring eye shadow until very recently, I decided to take the plunge and purchase this matte palette because matte shades tend to work best with my hooded monolids. My favorite part about this palette is that, as an eyeshadow beginner, you really can’t go wrong when mixing any of these shades. There’s a nice little guide that gives you something to start with and the shadows are all very easy to blend. While this palette is a little on the pricier side, I would highly recommend this palette for anyone with monolids or anyone who is just starting out with eyeshadow!
I literally have the widest face, which makes it incredibly hard to find sunglasses that don’t end up looking overly tiny on my face! They’re also not too expensive as far as sunglasses go so it’s easy to throw them in my bag and not worry too much about if they get scratched. I’ve also been commuting on the busy trains in Chicago and these sunglasses are so dark that they’re great for hiding your eyes when you need a bit of a pre-work nap :)
I’ve already rambled on about this favorite in my PopSugar box review, but ever since it showed up in my May box, I’ve been spraying it non-stop. This facial spray has worked wonders for helping me de-stress after long days. Just spritzing this a couple of times and taking a deep breath in has helped calm me down after a long day at work.
My boyfriend got me a Fitbit Alta over the summer and it has been so much fun to use! I’ve been a loyal Fitbit user for almost two years now but have been trucking along with my old Flex for most of that time. One of the things I loved about the Flex was the fact that I could switch the bands to match my outfits - which made the experience much more fun! I love that with the Alta, there’s a display that shows the time, all of my steps - and I can still personalize the tracker by switching bands :)
I have been on a nude lip kick for quite some time, but have yet to find a lip product that I love quite as much as this nude Lord & Berry lipliner. The funny thing is that I’ve actually never been in a Lord & Berry store! I am absolutely in love with this lipliner because it is the most perfect shade of nude lipliner for my skin tone. It’s hard to find a good nude shade because “nude” varies so much depending on the person. I’m usually between a beige and medium shade in foundation so this “nude” shade leans a little more towards nudey-brown for my tanner-skinned friends out there.
It’s officially September now which means it’s basically fall - aka it’s time for all things cozy! While I do much prefer the summer months, I can’t deny that there is something so incredibly charming and adorable about dressing up in socks and sweaters with a mug of something delicious :) Chrissy’s socks reached out to me last month to see if I’d be interested in trying out some of their socks and since I am a huge fan of fun, quirky socks, I decided to go for the donut and cat socks - because, honestly, who can resist donuts and cats? It’s moments like these that I realize what a great impact a small positive thing can have on my mood. Crazy cat lady socks make me happy. So why shouldn’t I wear them and enjoy the silliness that they bring to that moment?
