September Favorites

Hello and happy Saturday!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

I know I’m a little late with this post, but better late than never.

Today I wanted to write about my September favorites, as you can tell by the title!

So here are my September Favorites!

1.  Kate Spade New York Scatter Dot Large 17 Month 2017 Agenda

School has been really hectic these last couple of weeks and the one thing that has kept me from going insane with all the assignments is my Kate Spade planner! It is a 17 month large size agenda planner. Beginning with August 2016 and ending with the month of December 2017. It comes with monthly and weekly spread, which is what I use to keep myself organized. This has been by far my absolute favorite product this month!

AC2E03CB-915E-42EA-BFFF-F7826AF834FE.jpg2. Eva-NYC Dry Shampoo

This dry shampoo has been a life saver these last couple of weeks. It smells beautiful and does a great job of getting rid of all the oils. I actually received this sample size in the mail by Influenster and ever since I got it, it’s been amazing! Also, a little goes a long way with this product! I use this product every other day when I blow dry my hair or when I just want my hair to smell extra clean. I will admit though, that I dislike how it leaves my hair. It kind of leaves a residue in the sense that you can feel the product when you run your fingers through your hair, but other than that it is great!

60BD61DC-3CC8-4EF1-93B7-8E7874461465.jpg3. Wondra Cleansing Wipes

I am a huge fan when it comes to the Neutrogena makeup removing wipes, but I am not a huge fan when it comes to their prices. I have found some awesome makeup removing wipes that can compete with these Neutrogena wipes and it won’t hurt your wallet! The Wondra cleansing wipes are great I especially love how affordable they are! They’ve been really handy and I am so glad I found this product!

3B37696F-9EAA-425B-BED4-E6E5E36C827A.jpg4. Benefit Cosmetics Foamingly Gentle Facial Wash

This facial wash has been my absolute favorite face wash this month. It’s by Benefit and the retail price is $22.00 and I know that might be a little pricey, but a little does go a long way! It smells so good and leaves your skin feeling so nice and clean!
