As every girl and their mother said yesterday, September is my absolute favourite time of the year. It just gives me all the feels, you know? Back to school, crispy leaves, pumpkin spice everything, the beginning of fall, a few weeks till Thanksgiving, ugh it is just the best. And it’s around this time, I usually like to do a little refresh, & pick out some favourites for the new season:
I have this strange obsession with school supplies, especially when September rolls around (although I haven’t been in school for 3 years), but honestly I think everyone can benefit from a good agenda in their life. Plan out your days, vacations, work events, birthdays, and anything your heart desires. Doodle, colour in it, highlight whatever you want. The options are endless. This pretty marble number is from Indigo, the go to spot for all your planner needs. PLUS they’re all on sale now.
girl, wash your face
Not to steal words from Rachel Hollis but seriously, wash your face. Skincare is so important in your 20s and as the girl who used to fall asleep with all her makeup on, I’m proud to say I’ve come a long way and now actually love skincare. I like to change my routine/products up every so often, but regardless of what cleanser I’m using, I always like to do a deep clean. I’ve always enjoyed washing my face (is that weird?) and I’ve been using the mini Facial Cleansing Kit from Life Brand for a few months now, and I’m obsessed. It’s gentle, does a stellar deep clean + exfoliates. It also comes with 3 attachments (brush, silicone & sponge), and a USB cord for charging. Throw it in your gym bag, backpack or in a duffle for a weekend away, it’s mini sized so if you’re an over packer like me, not to fret, it takes up barely any space at all. Because nothing feels as good as a deep clean for your face, am I right?
Whether you’re in school or working, a comfy show is key. For me that usually means a neutral sneaker that I can dress up or down depending on the occasion. I’ve been wearing sneakers out more and more and I definitely not mad about it. Athleisure is still as popular as ever, so here’s your chance to sport your favourite kicks at the office, in class, or at an event. These baby pink bad boys are from the D’Lites from Skechers , and let me tell you they pretty much define the phrase word ‘walking on a cloud’.
a good snack
I recently got the chance to try a few Lara Bar flavours and can I just say, what snacks was I even consuming before?! Every long work day, study session, commute home, stuck in traffic situation I’ve been in could have been significantly more pleasant with the help of one of these bars. There’s a number of different flavours but my go to has to be the chocolate chip, I’m sucker for anything with the word ‘chocolate’ in it.
Those are all my favourites for September, let me know if there’s anything you’ve been loving lately in the comments!
