Fall is almost here and as much as it saddens me that summer is ending and the fun weekends on the lake are coming to a close, I’m also SUPER excited for everything FALL!
Bring on EVERYTHING Pumpkin Spice! Bring on the Fall Fashions and let me enjoy those nights by an outdoor fire!
September is also special to me because it’s the month I first became a Mom! Yes, my oldest has a birthday September 30th, he will be turning 11! So let the birthday planning festivities begin!
So as I’m currently at my computer enjoying a Pumpkin Spice Americano ;), here are my September Obsessions:
I get asked a lot about what type of make up I use on my face, a lot. Even though I shared once on the tips and tricks blog I did back in February I thought I would share it as an official obsession because well frankly, I’m still obsessed with it. I’ve been using it a few years now and still LOVE it!
I love a matte look and a powder that gives me some coverage because I do not wear much foundation at all. I like a powder that doesn’t get oily too quick, and one that gives a flawless perception! This is all that and in a convenient compact.
I actually use a No. 4 and a No. 9. Check out my blog: 3 Make Up Must Haves on WHY I use two different shades or What’s in my make up drawer for direct links of literally, everything in my everyday make drawer!
The next product comes actually from cashing in my Sephora 500 points gift. It was a combo pack of 4 small bottles of Dry Bar products. Dry Shampoo, Dry Condition, Heat Spray, and this new Monthly Obsession:
I freaking LOVE this stuff! I used the sample I received in Vegas last week and it was perfect! It came in VERY handy on those “hurry get ready” changes! It gives INSTANT volume, body, and texture! I also forgot my round brush, so the day I chose to wash my hair I literally dried my hair with the hotel dryer and my husbands small comb (yuk and dull) but this saved the day! I came home and immediately got a full size to my door next day! LOVE it!
One fitting for this holiday season:
This WHITE Pumpkin Spice Candle by Sweet Water Decor. OK, let’s face it sometimes looks do count, and that I’m referring to is in my home decor matching! ;)- Yes! lol.
Having mainly all white and cream decor a “want to get in the season candle” is hard to find in all things pumpkin because everything is ORANGE! An orange candle will totally clash with all my all white decor, so finding a WHITE pumpkin candle wasn’t the easiest. I love the smell and the beauty ;)- as it blends with my decor. My new fall favorite candle:
Last one for September is actually from my August Product Obsession results 🙂 this was my little “treat yourself” present to myself:
I actually went into cash in my last months product obsession, the Sephora perfume sample tester kit that came with a full size roller or spray mini coupon of on of the perfumes in the kit. I chose Candy by Prada, but this little pink box was calling my name as well on the next shelf so I wanted to give it a try! Its light and feminine fresh scent, it’s a little twist on the classic CHANEL and is my new go to on my vanity counter. I’ve always wanted to CHANEL perfume after my grandma gifted me my first and I’ve put it on my Christmas List every year but never end up with it, so this little treat to myself makes me smile every time I pick it up! Sometimes Queens, you just have to “buy it”. Life’s short, right? 😉 At least that’s what I try to convince the hubs when it comes to shoes, and handbags, and well everything in pink packaging. 😉
I do not have a read this month ladies,
If you follow me you’ll know I’m in my final editing stages of my own book, Basic B!tch, so I’ll be focusing on reading my own for final edits from now until December. I have a LOT of work ahead for me these next 2 months, so my sole focus will be preparing for the completion physically. mentally, and spiritually. I will leave this up in the side bar until then it’s offically announced and add and announce when Pre-Sales are active. This has been a 10 month journey in the making, a lot of hard work, a lot of reflection, opening up, and my new passion poured into one book, page by page.
I cant wait to share it soon, it’s ETA is by end of this year! EEK! Trust me Queens, you’ll be the FIRST to know and preview! 🙂 I’m SO excited and anxious about this!
Happy SEPTEMBER Mom Queens!
I’ll be leaving these obsessions in the side bar all month with a quick reference link. I hope maybe one can bring a little more Spice, Sparkle, or Strength to your Mom Queen Self!
