SEPTEMBER 2020 MONTHLY OBSESSIONS
It’s already the end of September – which means a few things: it’s almost my favorite month of the year (besides birthday month) and the holidays are coming up. Brands have started sending more PR packages again as things pick up which means I’m having a lot more to test out and try for you guys. Today’s list of monthly obsessions includes new snacks, makeup products and tv shows. AKA all the things. Let’s dive into it.
SEPTEMBER 2020 MONTHLY OBSESSIONS
This travel set is fabulous! I am a HUGE fan of Eterno – I use their time eraser on my forehead lines and their hyaluronic acid is the best serum I’ve used for hydration! I use it daily! We’ve been traveling a little bit more (safely of course) so I love that I can bring my favorite products with me on the road!
Ok, I have been eyeing this diaper bag for MONTHS now, but Jack was still needing a larger bag for most outings so I hadn’t bit the bullet. Now that he is entering that toddler phase more and more, for quick runs and walks out of the house, we definitely do not need his big diaper bag. I was finding myself stuffing extra diapers and wipes into my purse and it was just too much. SO. I snagged the brown Kibou bag and I’ve never looked back. It includes a little diaper pad to change your little one on, a waterproof inner pocket for snacks/dirty diapers, a big pocket for diapers and wipes AND a spot for me to put my phone and wallet. 10/10 think every mom needs one of these as your littles get bigger.
Target Halloween fashion
I haven’t tried this company before but I am SO happy I snagged this pair of denim!!! I love grey denim (I’ve talked a lot about it before HERE), I think it’s super trendy for fall because it goes so well with olive/rust tones. Obsessed with this brand because the denim is high quality and stretchy!
I got a facial here a couple weeks ago and it was SO good. I love their philosophy. There is only ONE facial on their list. It’s $125 and covers everything you need. They tailor each step according to your skincare but they’re super knowledgable and really help you figure out what you need. I have already booked my next two appts!
I have talked about Verb before but I’m OBSESSED with these. They taste so good (looking at you, Vanilla Latte) and they give me the exact boost I need to get through my afternoon. I wake up early with Jack and more often than not – I stay up late to finish tasks I didn’t get to during the day. I need to be able to be running all day and these do that. I don’t really drink coffee, so this is a better alternative for me.
OKAY. If you have been around for awhile, you’ll remember when I did my initial magnetic lash review in 2017. Spoiler alert: I HATED them. I have continued to try to find alternatives to lashes that use lash glue because I have a reaction to 99% of glue and they always cause my eyes to water. I was SHOCKED at how well this actually worked. It was just as secure as my glue, but didn’t pull any of my eyelashes out.
Clay Earrings (@goldenhourdesigns + @theclaymama)
I’ve started dabbling into the Clay earring trend and I am LOVING IT. I’ve ordered from a couple brands so far – @goldenhourdesigns on IG is my favorite new creator (watching her grow has been so fun), and @theclaymama is my favorite seasoned earring creator. Both have beautiful fall designs out right now!
YAY! As you know, I usually do #100daysofmakeup – but this year I needed to listen to my body and mental health and that meant cutting it down to 50 days. With a toddler running round, I don’t have quite as much free time to sit and just play with makeup, so I’m sharing much more wearable and attainable everyday looks (but don’t worry – Halloween is still coming). You can see every look + shop the products used here!
Ok I have been OBSESSED with these Shutterfly books for basically as long as I’ve been married. Our first one was a book of our engagement pictures that we set out at our wedding for our guests to use as a guestbook. It’s a beautiful keepsake. Then after that, I started doing books for each vacation and for each anniversary! I’ve added some others down the line like a baby shower book, and a book for Jack’s first year!
I hope you enjoyed these favorites this month – I had the best month at the beach, trying new products, getting really back into the swing of things with work now that everything is picking up speed again in preparation for the holidays.
What was your favorite thing from this month?!
