So a blogger friend of mine named Chelsie over at Life With Rosie Blog does this cool monthly link up called In and Out, where you talk about things that were “in” for you this month and things that were not/ “out.” It looked like fun so I thought I would join in!
So I will just jump right in to the things that were totally on my “IN” list.
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lipstick
These are my ONLY purchase from Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale this month. I know, I’m disappointed too. But um, I love them. I know that matte lips are all the rage right now, but sometimes I just want some MOISTURE. These babies are practically some kind of chapstick, while being gorgeous at the same time. I got a nude shade called “Nude Beach” and a great fall shade called “Bumbleberry” (yes, I totally bought it because it’s called bumble berry.) I seriously love them, I wish I would have bought them all while they were half off at Ulta!!
Morphe was on Hautelook in August (and again last week) and I finally got to really use the brushes that I purchased. I am SO impressed. For the price, they are amazeballs. Maybe not even just for the price, probably just amazeballs in general. Jaclyn Hill wasn’t lying.
I only bought 4 brushes, just to try them, and if they’re ever on Hautelook again, I WILL be buying more. They are so soft, they blend awesomely, and there’s basically no shedding. Just stop what you’re doing and order some.
Bath and Body Works Fall Scented Candles
Duh. They’re pretty much all amazing, they go on sale like every other week, and there is something for everybody. Yankee Candles are the bomb too, but like, a much more expensive bomb. I love that I can get these things for $12 on sale and B+BW usually has some kind of coupon in my mailbox as well.
Also IN for September; beating my best 5k time, nailing my Senior project presentation, Morphe on Hautelook again, and the girls at the Dunkin Donuts in Fort Myers – they always make my coffee the BEST and their customer service is Publix-worthy.
So that leads us to the “OUT” list.
Ultra Brush + Sponge Cleaner
I bought this on a whim at Ulta. It smells weird, I have to use like A TON of it to get my brushes clean, and did I mention it smells weird? Who wants to rub smelly brushes on their face? This was definitely out. I’ve legitimately been using my hand soap instead. Whoops.
It’s still in the 90’s on the regular here. Some Floridians will brag about it, “hashtag I live where you vacation,” BUT I am basically depressed September-January of ever year here. I miss seasons SOOOO bad! Especially the good ones, like Autumn and Winter at Christmas time. Illinois is calling me home. 😉 Although, I won’t be complaining when I go to the beach later today…Now I’m confused.
Also OUT for September; stupid malfunctioning iPhone software, sinus infections, Starbucks PSLs cost almost $6 for a venti thanks to the “real pumpkin.”
What was IN for you this month?! Make sure to link up with everyone over on Life With Rosie!
