Monthly Favorites – September

October is actually here, people, and with it comes my September favorites. I feel like I always say this, but September has just FLOWN by. I actually started trying out quite a few products this past month, so let’s get into it, shall we?

The Body Shop face masks

  • The Body Shop Face Masks – Amazonian Acai, Japanese Match Tea, Ethiopian Honey

I’ve seen a lot of good things about these masks since they’ve come out, but I never picked any up to try myself. Then they came out with the Japanese Match Tea mask somewhat recently, and it sounded right up my alley, so I moseyed on over to my local Ulta and bought one. And I’ve been in LOVE with it. It really gets deep down and cleans my skin, and it smells AH-MAZING.

After trying the match one, I immediately ordered the Amazonian Acai mask and the Ethiopian Honey mask. Lemme tell you, it took a while to decide which 2 I would get (I think they were having a buy 1 get 1 50% off sale), and I finally settled on these. I like to use the acai one in the morning, since it gives a really nice glow afterwards. And the honey one is super moisturizing. I’m thinking of getting the 3 I don’t have, and I’ll do a more detail review of them all then!

I actually have a few of these lipsticks already, but after seeing Emma from EJ Style wearing this particular color in one of her Instagram stories, I knew I HAD TO HAVE IT. It’s the perfect orangey-red for me, and while it’s not super long lasting, it wears off beautifully. I think I’ve worn this every other day for the past 2 weeks.

Becca First Light Filter Face Primer

Now, I’ve tried the Backlight Filter Face Primer before. I can’t remember much about it (it was a while ago), but since I haven’t re-purchased it, I must not have found it particularly exciting. THIS however. THIS PRIMER IS AMAZING (and yes, it is actually purple). First of all, it smells like lemons. If you don’t like a strong scent in your beauty products, this is probably not for you. I, however, don’t mind it at all. And the scent does go away after you’ve applied it. This also gives the most INCREDIBLE glow. Anything I put on top of this looks amazing. Definitely my new HG primer.

  • The West Wing

Hi, I’m Sara, and I’m a Netflix addict. I don’t own a TV, so I’ve been taking down old shows on Netflix one at a time. After I got done watching Friends, I started on The West Wing. To be honest, I didn’t think I was going to be that into the show. But I’m now on season 3, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite shows ever. Also, my actor count of people who were in The West Wing AND in Psych (my all-time, number one, favorite show) is up to 4. FOUR PEOPLE. That’s a lot.

I’ve been wearing this blazer almost every day since I got it. I really am in love with it. Normally I’m a medium in clothing, but after reading some reviews on Zara’s overall fit, I sized up. And I’m SO glad I did, because a large fits me PERFECTLY. I think this is definitely worth the money. Sara approved. *Side note: when I bought this, it was $99, but I just checked and it’s now $119.
