September Favorites

Anyone else having trouble believing that today is the last day of September? This month flew by so quickly. It probably didn’t help that grad school started! I spent this month at school, at work, or doing homework. October has lots planned – from Her Campus College Fashion Week this weekend to 3 infusions, from midterms to a mini-staycation when I dogsit – so I’m excited for to all start. But before that, it’s time to take a look at the things I loved in September!

    I’m with you–no idea where September went. I hope October goes by a bit more slowly!

      Me too! So far, so good (although I did have a pleasant surprise today when I realized that this week is my pay day).

    Omg Scream Queens is SOOO good. You need to watch Quantico! It’s only been one episode and it’s already a favourite x

      It seems right up my alley! I think I have too many TV shows – that’s what happens when you’re out of commission for nearly a year!

    I LOVE Scream Queens! And that BB cream is amazing. I don’t wear foundation or face makeup often because I don’t like the feeling on my skin, but it feels so light and it covers so evenly!
