September Favorites: Lifestyle.

A list of everything I was super loving in September. Would love to hear your favorites below!

Nest Pumpkin Chai Candle.I’ve mentioned this the last few years and I think even last month. While I’ll always be a huge Bath and Body Works Leaves fan (so nostalgic and perfect), this is really my go-to candle in the season. I also love the hand soap and the reed diffusers for our bathroom – the diffusers last forever! Everyone asks about the scent all the time.

On that same note though, for our kitchen soap, I majorly stocked up on the Mrs Meyers Apple Cider which is the best scent of life. It’s so freaking good. I use the multi surface cleaner in the kitchen too and buy multiple bottles to stock up. I find mine at Target but man, it sells out instantly. I know there is a candle version and I’d love to try that too. As a note, the dish soap does nothing for me, but I cook like a maniac, so there is that. If you’re a normal person, it would probably work fine.

Halogen Corbin Slide Loafer. I bought these at the nordstrom anniversary sale on a whim. If you’ve been reading then you know that these are SO not my type of shoe… because I always want heels. But it’s just not feasible all the time with Max (and especially once another babe is here), and I’ve been wearing these this month and LOVING them. I feel like they dress up any outfit with jeans and they are really comfortable. Plus, animal print is totally a neutral for me….

MY OTHER RECIPES

More Bauble Bar earrings that I am in love with! These ones are so super light and I love that they go with so many different things. I want to get the other two colors but am afraid I won’t wear them as much.

My TV favorite for the month is a little funny… but it’s totally the Jerry Seinfeld Netflix special. OMG. It is so, so funny. My cousin told us to watch it and we were just dying. It’s only an hour long too, so you can get through it quickly. A lot of nights Eddie puts on Seinfeld reruns and I was a little too young to watch them when they were on, so we just laugh at them for hours.

KitchenAid Proline Blender. I seriously cannot get enough of this blender, you guys. It blends a perfect smoothie with frozen fruit in one simple blend. It is awesome. I know I sound like such a broken record but it’s just so much better than my Vitamix ever way!

When I was grabbing a few things for Max in Gap, I came across these sweaters that were 50% off the sale price. I grabbed two, figuring they would be perfect for later this fall and winter since I’ll be nursing a newborn a lot. I LOVE THESE. First, they are fairly lightweight and they don’t shed at all. While they are warm enough, they also are still sort of sleek too. Gap always has sales so I definitely would not pay full price for these.

Clif Nutbutter Filled Bars. I’m actually embarrassed at how much I’m loving these. I’ve had a box or two on hand for a few months in case I have weird pregnancy hunger or nothing sounds good in the mornings. It’s more snack-like and a bit lighter than the Perfect Bars that I’m also really loving. My favorites are the chocolate peanut butter (shocking) and the banana chocolate peanut butter. They are SO good. Max loves a few bites too.

Anthropologie Gilded Rim Stemless Glasses. I will never get over how gorgeous these are! While I only bought a few for food styling, I want to buy enough to use to serve people while entertaining. They are SO pretty.
