And just like that another month has flown by. We’re officially into Fall (though it still feels pretty warm outside, which I’m totally okay with). Today I’m sharing ten of my favorite discoveries from this past month. I am a little in love with each of them but especially number two as it feels like such a big secret. And the big Nespresso pods are such a game changer for this coffee-addict. As always, you can click the image above to learn more, or keep reading to learn why these things are so fab. This series is always a favorite and you can check also out last month’s finds right this way… in the meantime, happy FRIDAY!
ONE // Elemis Cleanser. This cleanser leaves my skin deeply cleansed and feeling like silk. It also smells ever so faintly of lavender and vanilla, which I love. I have (wayyyy) too many cleansers in my bathroom, but is what I’ve been reaching for the most, lately – it’s so nice!
TWO // Maison Louis Marie Candle in No. 4. This discovery feels like a really big, awesome secret… it came from this past weekend’s trip to Charleston. My friend Taylor has the best taste and had these all over her house. I just about squealed, “These smell jussssst like Le Labo Santal!!!!” and she was all like, “I knowwww, and they’re only $34!” I plan on stocking up on these for my apartment. They smell heavenly… like campfire and musk and the Gramercy Park Hotel… for a fraction of the cost of Le Labo. Thank you, Taylor.
THREE // Raffia Earrings. I took a cooking class with Tuckernuck a few weeks ago and one of their (super cute) employees was wearing these earrings. I had to have a pair too. You can’t tell from the photo but they are really oversized which makes them dramatic and fun. And you wouldn’t think raffia for Fall, but I think it looks great – especially with bright colors and jeans.
FOUR // Nespresso Alto Pods. Okay I was reaaaaaally excited about this. I drink my Nespresso every morning and was kinda bummed that the cups were a little on the small side so I would usually end up drinking two. The new pods make a wonderfully big 14oz. cup.. perfect to sip on all morning as I do my work.
FIVE // Lipstick Queen Set. This little set is so cool! The colors look intimidating at first, but once applied, are totally not. My personal favorite is the yellow one (it turns into coral). The green is a really pretty rosebud pink, and the blue is a deeper plum. It’s so fun, and at $25 would also make for a pretty perfect gift.
SIX // Rebecca Taylor x Eberjey Collab. I love when two of my favorite brands join forces! Eberjey makes my PJs and Rebecca Taylor makes my favorite dresses so naturally this collab is a dream come true for me! So many sweet pieces, especially this little romper.
SEVEN // Oribe Body Scrub. This is one of the most hydrating, luxurious body scrubs I’ve ever tried. It is infused with Oribe’s ‘Côte d’Azur’ signature scent (sooooo dreamy) and includes diamond powder and sugar, with loads of oils + shea butter to nourish skin and hydrate. I’m obsessed.
EIGHT // Plants on Pink Instagram Account. If you know me well, it’s probably no surprise that this is one of my favorite instagram accounts. Lotte Van Baalen curates exactly what you’d expect to find: beautiful botanicals, set against pink backgrounds. It’s such a simple concept but done so well!
NINE // Mint Coat. I saw this coat on Nordstrom the other day and immediately dropped what I was doing to preorder it. It makes for such a fun statement piece, and I love layering pretty pastels when it cools down.
TEN // Simon Miller Bag. At the end of summer, I attended a chic dinner party in the Hamptons with Pat Bo. The woman I was seated next to was carrying this tiny clutch and I just loved it! Simon Miller makes it, and they come in a ton of great colors. It’s the perfect party bag – you won’t look like you’re trying to hard, but it’s unexpected and a little different.
