Happy Tuesday! I hope your week started off right. Today I want to share with you what I’ve been loving this month! It’s been an insanely busy month so far, but I’ve still found time for a few fun things!

First up: my latest favorite book! The Rise and Fall of the Gallivanters by M. J. Beaufrand is set in the 80s in Portland, Oregon. It follows a punk band and its lead singer, Noah, through the ups and downs of life. It’s a gritty, emotional, and amazingly descriptive story that will make you cry and want to shave your hair into a mohawk! You can grab a copy here.

Next up is something that had been on my wishlist forever: the Instax Fujifilm mini polaroid camera! It’s so cute, and I haven’t had trouble making the photos turn out great so far! It’s definitely my favorite of my favorites this month 🙂 To see how it does, check out my Instagram! I’m always looking for new bloggers to follow 🙂 You can pick yourself up one of these by clicking here!

I’ve also been loving nude and light pink lip colors lately; as sassy and bold that perfect dark fall lip is, it takes a lot of effort in the morning! I love these colors because they still provide a fun look, but are much easier to just swipe on. My 3 favorites are Milani Color Statement in Dulce Carmelo, Wet n Wild MegaLast in Dark Pink Frost, and Trestique Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude. (See the Nantucket Nude Shade reviewed here!)

I love this marsala leather jacket for fall! Its burgundy tones complement my wardrobe perfectly, and it really puts me in a fall mood! It was a great budget purchase too, at just $28 from Forever21. You can see it featured in an OOTD here! It’s no longer available in this wine color, but you can pick it up in black or beige, and the best part is that it’s currently on sale for just $21! Grab one here.

What’s In My September Ipsy Bag?

septipsy1

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well so far. Today I want to share with you what I received in my September Ipsy Bag! I keep falling more and more in love with my Ipsy subscription each time I receive a bag. This month’s theme was Face Fashion, and the photo insert featured natural and golden bronzed looks. I love the bag that everything came it, the textured surface is so pretty and I love the color! It’s perfect for fall.

Let’s take a look at what I received!

Formula X nail polish in Obsessed. This is a dark burgundy shade that’s perfect for fall! I received a Formula X nail polish in a previous Ipsy bag, and the color and quality were amazing! You can check out my review of it here. I like this merlot color even better than the previous peachy shade!

Next up, the Clarisea Sea Salt Solutions Rapid Detox Charcoal Face Exfoliant. That’s a crazy long way to basically say it’s a charcoal face scrub haha. I can’t wait to test this out!

This is the Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty! I’ve never tried anything from this brand, but I’ve heard really good things about them. Since I have dry skin, this is a perfect product for me to test. I can’t wait to review it for you guys!

This Trestique Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude is one of my favorite things in this bag. The shade is a perfect “my lips but better” color, and even though it’s matte, it’s not too drying.

And last but not least, this NYX eyeshadow trio! The color palette is designed through Ipsy to match the September theme, so I couldn’t find it to link it. I love the shades though, they’re amazing and extremely pigmented!
