SEPTEMBER Favorites!

It seems like whenever I go to do my favorites for the month I've already shared what I've been loving in a favorites post! I haven't been buying a whole lot of makeup, and I haven't been using different products so there's not much different from any other month!

I did find a few products that I know I haven't talked about yet that I have been loving, so here we go!

I don't know why I've never mentioned this before because I've been using it for almost a year and LOVE IT! I am super lazy when it comes to washing my makeup off at night before bed, and this is a lifesaver. I use this Pond's Cold Cream and put a thin layer all over my face, let it sit while I brush my teeth, and then wipe it off with a warm wash cloth. It doesn't get any easier than that! The makeup comes off so easy, and it doesn't take much time. It smells amazing, and pretty affordable!

Next is the L'Oreal scrublet. This little thing comes with those 360ยบ Clean Facial washes. I'm not a fan of the cleanser, but I LOVE this rubber scrublet. I use it in the shower after I've applied whatever face wash I grabbed for--let the cleanser sit, then I take the scrublet and do circular motions all over my face. I love that it feels as if the little "bristles" are gently breaking up the dirt and makeup off my face.

Last but certainly not least is NYX single eyeshadow in True Taupe. This is a dupe for Urban Decay Naked. Love both of them--they are great for blending out crease colors! True Taupe is a great alternative to Naked. I'm so happy I could find a dupe!

Let me know what you think of these products!

School Spirit--Football Nails!

This weekend was homecoming for my boyfriend's high school and my high school. We decided to go to his school for the football game because his younger brother is a senior linebacker for the team! They unfortunately lost with only a few seconds left in the game, but it was fun to go and support him.

Earlier in the week I was really trying to decide what I wanted to on my nails. I knew I really wanted to do something festive because it was homecoming, so I decided to a splatter with their school colors!

I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in All Fired Up! and Sinful Colors Black on Black. As I said in a recent post, these are my favorite--AND I realized they are perfect for any school colors. With football season getting into high gear, I think it's perfect for manicures!

Let me know what you think of this look in the comments--don't forget to follow me on Twitter!

Hope you guys have a great and safe weekend!

Stack em, Girl!

Yesterday the boy and I had date night; and while I was getting ready, I realized I've been stacking my headbands and have never shown it in a post.

Here I just took two skinny black headbands (they were the same brand) and put a silver and black lace in between. So simple and great for changing up the look. I especially love it because I can use a few skinny headbands and get the thick headband effect which is great because I have long, thick hair!

What do you think of stacking headbands? Have you done it?

Hope everyone has a great week!

My Favorite Mani--SPLATTER!

I always get asked which type of manis are my favorite.

I have a lot, but splatter manis are my absolute favorite--mostly because they always turn out different, and the color combinations are endless!

Although it's my favorite, I don't do it as much because I make a big mess when I do it! haha The things you do for beauty! 

I don't think I've ever posted this mani on my blog before, but I do know that I used it as a guest post back in April for the beautiful Kayla (Sheer Beauty).

If you want to see a step by step how-to, go check out the original post on her blog!

Hope you guys enjoyed this look, and I hope everyone has a great week!
