Ahh - September, how I love thee. The weather is starting to cool down and I’ve had A LOT of rainy days to make up for the brutal heat of my first Texan summer. I’m beyond thrilled that Fall is finally here and I have a few favorites this month that are perfect for the season.
1. Magnolia / Joanna Gaines Earrings - $28
Technically, these earrings are called “Zia” from the brand Raven Lily - but, Joanna Gaines wears these and sells them at Magolia Market and they’re AWESOME! I’ve never been much of an earring gal but I saw these and fell in love. I tried them on and loved them even more. They’re perfect casual-but-cute earrings and I get tons of complements when I wear them!

2. Philosophy Apple Cider Shower Gel - $18
This shower gel smells exactly just like apple cider! It is delightful! Honestly, I don’t normally spend much on shower gels, but this product is seasonal and worth the little splurge. It is perfect for a bubble bath too!

3. Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Moisturizer - $42
Clinique is one of my favorites brands and I am surprised it took me so long to try out this night cream. I’ve noticed that my skin is starting to need a little move love and this cream feels like it’s making a difference! It is thick, creamy, but hasn’t clogged my pores. I’m a fan!

4. Orly Breathable Treatment + Color - $8.99
Time to bust out the Fall colors and Namaste Healthy by Orly immediately caught my eye. It is a gorgeous shade of deep red and I really like the formula and the applicator. I’m completely unsure about the benefits of the “Breathable” aspect of this nail polish, but I didn’t need a top coat or a base coat (it claims not to need them) and so far, it’s lasted several days without any chipping. Trust me - I’m a picker and it was really hard to pick this stuff off.

5. Jo Malone Peony + Blush Suede Cologne - $68
I AM SO OBSESSED WITH THIS COLOGNE! I’ve tried samples of different Jo Malone scents in the past, and while some smelled very nice, they didn’t seem to last very long. However, I recently tried a sample of Peony + Blush Suede and not only did it last long, but the smell was to die for!!! After my sample ran out, I immediately ran out and purchased a bottle of it! It smells sooo good!

6. Toms Spiced Carmel Sneakers - $49.95
Would you ever guess these are Toms?! How cute are these sneakers? I’m normally a Keds loyalist for low profile sneakers but these have such an awesome vintage look to them. The color is perfect for Fall and they’re super comfortable. I love them! Apparently they’re no longer available on the Toms website but if you want your own pair, you can find them at Zappos.

1. Trader Joe’s Maple Leaf Cookies
Mr. San Diego says, “They’re good. I like these a lot”.
Favorite Movie: Nappily Ever After
Sanaa Lathan is SO GOOD in this Netflix movie based on the Trisha Thomas book. There are so many incredible themes of self-love and authenticity that I absolutely loved, and Lathan had a few very powerful scenes that made me cry and laugh with her.
Favorite Binge: The Good Place
GAH - I love Kristen Bell and I have fallen in love with all the characters on this show. The writing is clever and hilarious, and I love that they are subtly insightful and support diversity. Season One and Two are now streaming on Netflix, and Season Three just started!
Favorite Other: LoveSac
WE GOT A LOVESAC - and it is AMAZING! I’ve wanted one for SO LONG and we got such an incredible deal on it. It is like lounging on a soft cloud of happiness and I am sooooo happy with it!
