September Favorites and an Announcement

Oh hi there. Will you look at the calendar? It’s October already – can you believe it?

It’s been a bit quiet around this little corner of the internet but for a very good reason. Are you sitting down? The very best boyfriend and I got engaged!!! It’s all very exciting and we couldn’t be happier.

Since the proposal we’ve been really busy with the wedding planning and so far we have a date set, our venue booked, and we hired our photographer. Naturally, I haven’t had as much time devote to this little blog and, unfortunately, I don’t really see that changing anytime soon. You always hear how stressful planning a wedding is but I didn’t really believe it until we now have to plan our own. There are just so many decisions to make – small and large. Sigh.

I do hope to still post at least a few times a months and I have a few posts lined up, including my September Glossybox and a couple of Memeboxes I received recently so keep an eye out for those. There might also be a few crafting-related posts in the future. The very best fiancé and I are thinking about DIYing a lot of our decorations so I hope to share a few of our projects with you. This blog was never supposed to be a straight-up beauty blog so I’m looking forward to broadening the scope a bit.

For now, let’s talk about my September favorites. Since my life has mostly been revolving around wedding planning as of recently, I decided to throw in a few non-beauty, wedding-related things into the mix as well. I hope you don’t mind.

September 2015 Favorites

  1. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment (4 fl oz, $26): This styling treatment is great if you’re looking for some oomph for fine hair without the frizziness that can be the result with other volumizing styling treatments. I tried a sample of this during July’s Sample Killah challenge and pretty much immediately went out and bought the full size.
  2. Caudalie Foot Beauty Cream (2.5 fl oz, $15): Foot cream isn’t something you would usually rave about but this one is a-mazing. And it smells so good, like grape juice. It’s a new staple in my beauty routine. Hey, who doesn’t like soft feet?
  3. A Practical Wedding: Creative Ideas for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration ($9.99): With the whole wedding industry pushing for a fairytale wedding it’s so easy to lose sight of what’s important. This book, and the related website, do a great job of bringing me back down to earth after any intense Pinterest session.
  4. The Body Shop Blueberry Shower Gel (Limited Edition, 8.4 fl oz, $8): This shower gel simply smells amazing. Enough said.
  5. Paper Flower Tutorials by Lia Griffith: As I had mentioned, we’re thinking about DIYing our wedding decorations, including the flowers. This website has amazing tutorials for paper and crepe paper flowers. They looks super realistic and are really fun to make.

What beauty (and non-beauty items) have you been loving this past September?
