September Favorites: Lifestyle.

Here are my favorites for the month of September… and they are some of the best things I’ve got all year! xoxo

the Spotify Mood Booster playlist. It never fails, I LOVE this playlist! It’s what I blast every Monday morning and what I often make recipes to. It has all sorts of music and especially plays to my pop-loving heart.

Nest pumpkin chai candles and reed diffusers. Oooooh I love this scent so much. It rivals my obsession with Bath and Body Works Leaves. These reeds last forever and the candles burn so nicely. And they smell incredible.

the Canon 5D Mark IV. I did it. I switched to Canon after shooting with Nikon for SEVEN!!! years and it has completely changed my life. I can’t even describe my love for this camera. It has a touch screen (which I’m sort of used to from the samsung nx300), the quality is amazing, it is so much lighter than my Nikon. I could just go on and on and on (and I will in a blog post if you want!). I’ve only had it for two weeks but have used it every single day!

MY OTHER RECIPES

I’ve been wanting barely ripped black/gray jeans forever and finally found these rag and bone ones a few weeks ago. They are SO comfortable, soft and the perfect length. I have never in my life paid this much for jeans but I just loved them so much. The only downside is that they aren’t high rise (and oh do I love me some high rise), but they are super stretchy so it works!

These Merona pointed flats from Target. I’m totally trashing these shoes up (as you can see) because I’m using them as my casual shoes that I wear EVERYWHERE. Also used them as my airport shoes. They are super comfortable and dress things up a little! Even if… I only wear them with yoga pants.

My Z Gallerie glitter gourds and pumpkins. I’ve had these for years and always get super excited to bring them out. Every year I get tons of questions on where to buy them too! I only use them as accent pieces (no, my entire house is not covered in glitter as much as I’d love it to be) but they are just so cute and fun.

I am also absolutely losing it over my MacKenzie Childs “beware” pumpkins. In full disclosure, they sent me these before I went on a trip to their headquarters, but I am love them so much that I couldn’t not mention them. Everyone who has walked in our house has asked where they are from!

This hot pink, structured Ted Baker tote. I have tons of totes but I don’t have one THIS structured. Or this hot pink. Or one covered in hot pink studs. Basically, I HAD to get it. It was a great airplane tote! So structured that I could find all the things. Carries my camera AND laptop too! I’m going crazy because I can’t find it anywhere for sale – and I found it at Nordstrom and am almost positive it had been returned. Maybe it was last season?

RXBARS in Apple Cinnamon. I feel like such a hypocrite mentioning this because on instagram stories I ranted after tasting my first one about how it just tasted like dates. I like dates, but I do not love larabars and don’t event tell me that this concoction of cashews and dates is going to taste like chocolate chip cookie dough. It is not. So! A bunch of you messaged me and told me to try other flavors, so I did and I really like some of them. I absolutely love the apple cinnamon. So good.

This frayed white button down is quite possibly my favorite purchase in all of September. It is the softest thing ever and who doesn’t need another white shirt? Freaking out over it.

[none of this is sponsored, just like to talk about things that I discover and love over the month. i purchased everything myself aside from the mackenzie childs pumpkins that they sent me in preparation for a press trip. tell me your faves! there may be a few amazon affiliate links above. love love.]
