September Favorites

Hey y'all!

September was here & gone in the blink of an eye, wasn't it?

This was the month I got a craving for Fall & jumped in with both feet, even if it was still ninety degrees outside, sorry not sorry. 

Anyways, Alabama is finally supposed to be jumping on the Fall bandwagon this weekend, so you'll finally be seeing some more cozy clothes in my posts. 

These are the things I've been loving this month, it's a little bit of everything because I'm random like that.

September Favorites

3 wick candle/Essie nail polish/3 Wick-Candle/Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pen Medium Point 16 Color Set/Hempz Body Lotion/Gap open front cardigan

Bath & Body Works: 
I'm going to go on & talk about both of these candles in the same little section, if that's okay?
K, cool.
It can't be officially Fall without three-wick candles from B&BW. They always have the two for $20 deal, well not always but you get it, and that's the only time I buy them. But it's so worth it.

My two current favorite scents are Warm Caramel Cider, which smells of sweet caramel, fresh apples, and a hint of vanilla & Marshmallow Fireside, which smells just like toasted marshmallows, smoky firewood, and just a bit of vanilla.

There is nothing better than curling up on the couch with Netflix, my laptop for blogging, a glass of moscato, & one of these candles burning on the coffee table.

Essie Nail Polish:

The color After School Boy Blazer is on my nails right this second. That's how much I love it. I saw people wearing it when it first came out, but I didn't decide that I had to have it until recently.
In fact, I've genuinely been afraid of dark colors on my nails-but no more.

When I picked it up at Target the other day I didn't expect to love it as much as I do, but I think it's going to be one of my Fall favorites for sure.

Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pens: 

I fell in love with these pens after seeing them on Taylor Glenn's YouTube channel & I haven't looked back since.
These are great for taking notes, especially since they come in so many fun colors.
You already know my obsession with color coding & how I need lots of fun colors to keep my attention, so these fit the bill.

They are a little on the pricey side, but totally worth it to me if they last for as long as I've heard they do. Plus, y'all know I use coupons for everything & these pens were no different.
*Insert sassy emoji here*

Apple Chai from Starbies: 

My sister, the greatest barista there ever was, turned me onto this drink as a better alternative to the PSL or even the Caramel Apple Spice.
It's so good, it tastes just like a mild cider & I love sipping it on my way home from a date night with C or while I'm shopping, specifically at TJMaxx, but that's another blog post for another day.

Try it out, the barista will probably be confused, but just tell her it's apple juice with a chai tea infusion. (Right Trystan?)

Hempz Lotion: 

I had been using the Hemps lotion from Wal-Mart (which is basically the off-brand version) when I was tanning this past summer, but this is SO MUCH BETTER.

I found this at TJMaxx for only like $13 & it's pomegranate scented & I basically can't say enough good things about it. It makes my skin feel so soft.
Plus, it's made of organic ingredients...which is a good thing, right?

Check out your TJMaxx or even order it online, it's so worth spending the extra $$$ on.

 Gap Open-Front Cardi: 

This cardigan is where it's at.

You saw me feature it earlier in a haul post & y'all know I only paid $18 for it. So basically it's a huge win.

This has been a go-to for me this past week when morning and evenings are cool, but the afternoons are scorchers. I love layering it over a simple tank top and pairing it with skinny jeans and my faux Jack's, comfy & put together all at the same time. :)

I'm sure I'll be pulling it out this weekend since it's finally getting nippy outside!

Well, there it is...hope y'all enjoyed my favorites from this past month!

Until next time. . .
