Things I loved in September.

Hello all! I decided for my first real post, I would compile a list of all the things I loved and hated throughout the month of September. It is now officially the best season of the year, well it has been for about nine days, but I don’t even think september reeeeally counts as fall. Why? Well for starters it has been SO HOT for about 90% of the month, and all the trees were green up until the very end. Plus, it is only technically fall the last nine days of it anyways. Either way, I am BEYOND pumped for the pretty leaves, crisp air, warm drinks, boots, pumpkins, etc. Basically all the things a “basic” girl could ever want. And I’ll admit, as much as I don’t want to be considered “basic,” let’s just face the facts; I’m probably a 7 on a 1-10 scale of basic-ness. Sorry ’bout it. I’ll stop rambling on and on about my basic tendencies, so here’s my list of must-haves for September.

1. It Cosmetics “Your Skin But Better” CC cream.

cc cream

My oh my do I love this product. It’s a medium-full coverage CC cream, which I was surprised about because most CC (and BB) creams I have tried out before were a very light coverage, and let me tell you- I NEED my full coverage. I just apply this with my fingers, which is a new tactic for me considering I have only used foundation brushes over the past few years. It feels light on my skin, and its not too cakey. Although, it is considered a medium-full coverage CC cream, I still need to use my concealer, Boi-ing by benefit, to cover up those pesky blemishes. Then I dust on my favorite powder, Hello! Flawless, also by Benefit and call it a day.

2. Jack Rogers “Navajo Flat” sandals.

I only recently bought my first pair of Jack Rogers. And to be completely honest, for the longest time I did not see the appeal to them whatsoever. But, since I got to this campus I see girls wearing them almost everywhere and they started growing on me. So finally, after debating with myself if I really liked them or if I was just getting them because probably half the girls on this campus have a pair, I finally caved and bought a pair. Not gonna lie, they were a bit painful to break in. The arches in my feet would often be blistered. But now they are so comfortable and I wear them all the time. Plus, they’re so versatile. You can wear them a variety of ways, such as pairing them with a dressier outfit, or you could wear them with jeans and a tee, or even leggings (guilty of this). I’m SO glad I ended up getting these sandals, I think they’re definitely worth the investment.


3. OPI “Red My Fortune Cookie.”

The Perfect cherry red nail polish. That is all.


4. The Office.

I never really watched The Office when it was on TV, unless it was randomly on USA or TBS or something like that, but I never really followed along with it. But, all thanks to Netflix, I am now in love. It’s hilarious! In all honesty I don’t have that much time to sit down and watch hours of Netflix on end like I used to. But every so often if I am eating lunch in my dorm, I’ll squeeze in an episode or two.


 5. Country Music.

I am honestly so surprised that I included this in my favorites, and I’m sure my closest friends would be as well. Because, I absolutely HATED country music for the longest time. I don’t know why, but I’ve been listening to it a lot recently. Maybe it’s something in the water here. But mark my words I will never ever ever listen to wagon wheel by Darius Rucker. I will forever dislike that song, and I know for a fact I will never change my mind on that one. But that’s neither here nor there. Here’s a list of some of my fave country songs right now:

  • Bartender – Lady Antebellum
  • Burnin’ it Down – Jason Aldean
  • Somewhere In My Car – Keith Urban
  • Dust – Eli Young Band
  • American Kids – Kenny Chesney
  • Somethin’ Bad – Miranda Lambert & Carrie Underwood

Here’s a link to my Spotify playlist: country

6. The Return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

I’m sorry they’re just so good!


Aaaaaaaand thats’s a wrap. Enjoy October!

Welcome Aboard

Hello! First things first (I’m the realest) I’d like to introduce myself to you. My name is Liz and I am currently in the beginnings of my college career, only 5 weeks into my freshman year. Now, with this stressful time of essentially floating around pretending like I know what I’m doing, you’d think I would be spending my time focused on school work, making friends, figuring out which dining halls don’t serve poison, and exploring the campus. False. While I do intend to do these things, I thought I’d start a blog to document this journey. You may wonder, “Why start a blog? Why not just call your mom and your best friend from home and talk to them?” To be honest, I have no idea why I started this. Actually I do. Today I was looking at my Instagram newsfeed, and noticed someone liked a picture, which happened to be from someone’s blog. That’s when the the wheels started turning in my head. I mean this blogging be too hard… right? I’ve always had a passion for all things beauty and style, and I love to read lifestyle posts, and look at yummy recipes that there’s no way in hell I’m ever going to make. So voila! I made this blog, with a little help from my mom of course(hi mom!). I hope to be posting things related to beauty, fashion, and lifestyle, but I’m sure I’ll add in a few of my daily embarrassing moments as I stumble around this campus. Catch ya later!

xo, Liz
