September Favorites.

HOW are we already through half of the month of September?!

And how did I manage to squeak by August without a favorites post?!  I should be fired from this job.

Anywaaaaay —

Without further adieu..

1. A few weeks ago on Instagram I shared a picture of me holding up a bottle of foundation primer and telling you guys I am the shade of the primer #palegirlproblems.  Anywhooooo, later that day I went to the mall and found this foundation which is basically a pale girl’s dream come friggin’ true.  If you share Casper-white, computer-paper skin like I do, the ‘Ivory–I’m Pure For Sure’ is your shade — I promise!  Usually the fairest foundation is a good 2-3 skin tones darker than I actually am, so I look offensive to the eyes.  But Benefit’s Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is seriously perf.  It goes on super lightweight, stays put all day, looks realistic–NOT cakey, and blends seamlessly.  Plus, it has SPF.  Sold.

2. DUUUUHHOOOOOOOOD.  After spotting this (and buying four — yes, four), I am convinced Ben and/or Jerry live in my head and spy on my dreams.  THIS ICE CREAM IS LIFE.

3. If you know me, you know I quote this movie on the reg.  It’s one of my favorites of all time.  Why’d ya have to die, Brittany Murphy?  Way harsh, Tai.

4. It’s baaaaaaaack.  Some people were swiggin’ haterade on these candies last year, but personally, I loved the slight green apple flavor.  It tasted so good and fresh next to the gooey caramel and milky chocolate.  Plus, it gives you reason to make this

caramelapplespiceThese were one of my favorites last fall!

5. A couple nights ago, my family and I went out to a little town close by called Folsom (you may have heard of it in a famous Johnny Cash song).  We went to this local tavern called Sam Horne’s and I have to say, it was probably the best burger I think I’ve ever put in my pie-hole.  Like, ever-ever.  I got the Nutcase, which is a burger topped with the thickest bacon in the universe, a crispy raw red onion and.. *drumroll* peanut butter.  It. Was. PHENOM, y’all.  Peanut butter is my new favorite burger condiment.

It reminds me of my buddy Tieghan’s bacon/pb burger she posted not too long ago…

…and is having me crave it alllll over again.  I hope you’re proud of me, T!

6. In recent years I have become more interested in horror movies which is strange because before recently, I would seriously need diapers in order to get through the opening credits of most scary flicks.  I am DYYIIIING to see the new Insidious 2 movie because the first was SO GOOD.  Does anyone else like scary movies?  Any other Insidious fans out there?  WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE NAKED OLD MAN IN THE TRAILER?!  Why is that grimacing creepy face in the window holding what appears to be a Chipotle burrito?  I NEED TO KNOOOOOOOOW.

7. Have you tried the new Chocolate Chai Tea at Starbucks?  It’s my new fave!  Cinnamon and chocolate are one of my favorite flavor combinations — I love the warm, complex richness cinnamon lends the already-sweet chocolate.  Makes me want to slurp one of those chais down with a handful of cookies



One of my favorite cookie recipes–plush, mocha-infused cookies topped with a decadent, fluffy Kahlua frosting.

What are some of your September favorites?!  Links are welcome!

Have a fantastic day!

  1. Ohhh, that ice cream! Sounds awesome!
    I love seeing peoples fave things, thanks for sharing!

  2. I tried the chocolate chai this morning, and I thought it was just okay. It was a bit watery. Maybe the dude didn’t make it right. I think I’ll stick with pumpkin spice chai. They also had caramel brulee as a seasonal at some point last year, and that’s excellent in chai.

  3. I MUST find those Milky Ways. SO OMG good. And we need to go to Folsom together!

  4. See!!! I told you! Peanut butter rules on burgers!! You will never go back!

    Fun post!

  5. I need that foundation! I have the palest skin on the face of the planet. And, I’m dying to get some of those Milky Ways again this year. So good!

  6. I’m gonna be in huge trouble now that you introduced me to this Rockin Blondie ice cream. And a bacon PB burger??! LOVE.

  7. 1-that foundation looks awesome! 2-OMG THAT BURGER 3-Love Clueless 4-that ice cream, why haven’t I tried it yet??! 5-I worked an event promoting Insidious 2-we gave out free ice cream (or i-scream,…get it?) and I got to meet the 2 stars, Rose and Patrick. 😛

  8. Love pb on burgers!
    I adore those sweet drinks at Starbucks! But I’m a wuss, and have to only have like 1-2 shots of the sweet stuff.

  9. 1. I’m super crazy pale, and while I like my mineral make-up, I’m totally willing to give this a try!

    6. I am a scary movie buff! I’ve always loved them, even as a kid! (why my parents let me watch them though, is a different question…) I liked the first Insidious movie, but the second one hasn’t bee getting very good reviews, so I think I’ll wait ’til it’s on DVD 🙂 I’ll definitely still watch it though!

  10. that ice cream looks amazing! Definitely need to try that!!
