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.
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

6. The Return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
I’m sorry they’re just so good!
Aaaaaaaand thats’s a wrap. Enjoy October!
