Well.. there goes another month! I hope everyone is enjoying the brisk morning air and the smell of heat coming through the vents again. I hope you've all been able to get into full basic bitch mode and enjoy a nice Pumpkin Spiced Latte (either from Starbucks or at home!) Let's jump right into what I've been obsessing over this month!
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Tootsi - Another monthly favorites post, another Colourpop product to talk about. We all know that I am a full on matte lip kinda gal, especially in the Fall. But some people just aren't comfortable wearing a super matte lip and here on Noted Nina, we don't discriminate. This Lippie Stix in Tootsi has been my go to lip color for the past few weeks. It's super comfortable and not too drying on the lips but still lasts for hours. The color is like a mauve, beige, grey. It does look a little darker on me than on the lips model on Colourpop.com. Definitely a must have for the Fall, and while you're at it… get the lip liner too!
Banish Acne Scars Activated Charcoal Clay Masque - This mask is…. magic. I really can't think of any other word to describe it. If you're someone who struggles with oily skin or blackheads, stop reading and go buy this mask right now! Wait, not yet.. let me just tell you more. Now you guys know I love the Glamglow Supermud Purifying Mask but it sometimes is a bit too harsh on my skin. This mask is even better at getting rid of my blackheads and doesn't bother my skin at all. It comes in powder form and you just add water to make a paste and apply it to your skin. The way this bad boy gets rid of all my blackheads is just amazing, I've never seen anything like it. Ugh, so good!
Banish Acne Scars Pumpkin Enzyme Masque - Yup… you read that right. Pumpkin! During the Fall, pumpkin takes over every aspect of our lives. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes or creamers, Pumpkin scented candles, Pumpkin carving, and of course a good old fashioned Pumpkin Pie. Why wouldn't we incorporate some pumps into our skincare?! Like I said before, we don't discriminate here on Noted Nina. This mask 1. smells so yummy and 2. makes your skin so nice and smooth. This is great for acne prone skin, it will give your skin the boost it needs to go from dull to DAMNNNN! (I mean honestly, why am I not on infomercials?)
Primark Ankle Boots - I talked about my recent trip to Primark with Mum and Lissie in my What's in my Bag post and I'm finally getting to wear some of the things that I bought. I got a lot of clothes for the cooler months but if you're from Boston, you know.. Mother Nature has been going through some shit. Finally, it's been a bit chillier! I got these ankle boots for just every day, work and stuff and I LOVE them! They're so comfy, they don't rub on my ankles at all and they're super easy to slip on and off (because you know I take them off underneath my work desk).
Warner's No Side Effects Bra - One of my favorite blogs to read is Stephanie Macedo's. She is one of my favorite YouTubers, Amy Macedo's sister. Amy tagged her in one of her pictures and since then Stephanie has become one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram. Not to get all mushy gushy but seeing her blog and how beautiful it was, was the final push I needed to create my own blog. She recently talked about her Two Fashion Secrets which included a bra and a shaper. I ordered the bra pretty much immediately after reading the post. It's the comfiest bra I've ever worn, but it still gives you the support you need to keep those babies in the right spot. Go check out Stephanie's blog for more!
Mum and I have been going to the gym in the morning and I truly count on this song to get me through my workout. Put this on and just imagine all the people who told you you couldn't do something, didn't believe in you, or talked bad about you and just yell "THIS MY SHIT, BOW DOWN BITCHES!" I mean, if that's not the most motivational saying you've ever heard, I really don't know what else to tell ya!
That's all I have for October guys. I'm super super excited to get into the Holiday spirit this month! I have some really fun things coming up in the next couple of months so stay tuned! Until next time!
