Wrapping Up September!

Hello Beauties!

September can be hectic. It’s the month of “getting in the swing of things”. It’s when you’re super tired, school is getting harder, and the weather is changing. For some, all of these differences are welcomed! For others, it’s painful. So let me help you ease into October with these favorite products and tips. Enjoy!

Be sure to take time for you

You deserve it, especially now. You’re taking on clubs, jobs, a social life, work, etc. When you are doing any of that you’re sleeping, or you wish you’re sleeping. Now let’s think about taking a BREAK. Relax a little; you’ll find that’s the only way to not go crazy with your busy life. Grab a blanket and your favorite pillow and chillllll. 


Lotion is your best friend

The best way to treat yourself is to keep yourself hydrated, especially with winter coming. Before bed, when you wake up, or any time you feel it, grab your lotion of choice and lather up! Make sure that your morning scent will help you stay awake and your night scent will help calm you.


Don’t worry about the small stuff 

The worst thing to do is overthink the little pieces when you’ve got so many big pieces on your plate. Not only are you wasting time and brainpower, but you’re stressing yourself out more. The little things are little. They don’t matter at all. Just stay focused and keep your brain from replaying that awkward interaction in the hallway or that coffee stain you never knew you had all day long. You’ve got better things to do.

Hot baths are also your best friend

Don’t skip out on a nice bubble bath. Never skip out on a nice bubble bath. Don’t even begin to think about life without a nice bubble bath.


Keep everything organized

It’s a waste of time to try to remember everything you have to do. Even if you try to force yourself, it doesn’t work. Don’t do it. Keep a cool planner with compliments and snarky remarks to make you excited about starting your To Do list.


Maybe you’re doing too much?

Maybe you need to cut back on some things. Maybe that Monday night book club isn’t necessary or you have no time this weekend to get anything done. Make sure that you’re putting yourself first; cutting back on your schedule doesn’t make you a failure, it shows that you know yourself and your limits. Better to figure this out now rather than later.


READ (only with tea present)

I’ve been taking a course dedicated to making me read more than I do, and I’ve loved it. Sometimes the last thing you want after perusing over documents and textbooks is to read, but it’s so GOOD for you! Let yourself go a little, not just tune out in front of Netflix. This must have tea involved, no exceptions.


Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,



Hello My Beauties!

I am so super excited for this post since it rounds off the month of September and brings us into Fall, my favorite season! I will include the link to my Youtube video as well so definitely check that out!

1. Uniqlo Army Green Skinny Jeans- So adorable and a perfect staple item for the fall! They are also really durable and comfortable, which is soooo nice!

2. Old Navy Sweater- I love this button up and I insist that you all get on right NOW! They are so inexpensive, mine was $19, and they come in different colors as well!

3. Forever21 Autumn Dress- I can’t get enough of this dress! You can wear it with tights and boots or high socks and heels! I highly recommend a versatile dress for Fall since you never know what the weather is going to be like.

4. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick- So great and it really lasts while adding a nice shine to your lips!

5. Covergirl Lashblast Clump Crusher- I really love this mascara because it thickens and lengthens your lashes with a turn of the brush! Check out the video to see what I mean 😉

6. Covergirl Professional Super Thick Mascara- I just love this one overall. It’s very nice and doesn’t have a plastic applicator brush so the finished look is very classy!

7. NYX Eyebrow Pencil- This eyebrow pencil is so natural and very easy to apply.

8. Maybelline Dream Mousse Foundation- This has always been a product that I have gone back to. It is very sheer and wears well so it is perfect for those good skin/relaxed days!

9. NYX Love in Paris Eyeshadow Pallet- I highly recommend this pallet, it is amazing for a cute, natural eye look.

10. Toni&Guy Cleansing Shampoo and Conditioner- I have just picked up this product and I really like it! I would honestly check this out. It is very light on the hair and makes it very smooth which I appreciate!

11. Kissing Bunny Ring Holder- This is just a really cute and creative way to store your rings! Plus, who doesn’t want little kissing bunnies, am I right?!

12. Glass Jewelry Box- Love love love this little box! It is so cute and simple and a really great way to keep your small necklaces or bracelets.

13. Allegiant- I have not read this book yet but I am very excited to! I have heard that it is not that great, but I got it this month and since I liked Divergent I really want to finish the story! Check out this series by Veronica Roth!


‘Til Next Time,
