September 2014 [Beauty & Fashion] Favorites

Beauty
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye Cream (get it here!)
Per a recommendation from a few people, this has become my new nighttime eye cream, I have inherited genetic dark circles under my eyes, so a strong eye cream is a must. This stuff is amazing - not too heavy but definitely powerful, and you only need the tiniest bit. I've been loving it and it really has minimized my dark circles and bags under my eyes.

Elchim Healthy Iconic Hair Dryer (get it here!)
I had been using the same Conair hair dryer for legitimately 8 years, and it was time to retire her and get a big girl hair dryer. I really didn't think a high-end hair dryer would make a  difference, but it definitely does. I bought this one on the recommendation of one of my friends and I could not be happier about it. The price is a little steep for a hair dryer, but I promise you will  notice the difference in your hair and in your drying time.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eye Shadow in Playa Del Pink (get it here!)
This product is so innovative; I've never seen anything like it. This is actually my new go-to, every day allover lid color, especially in the mornings before work. It is the perfect neutral, shimmery shade and because its a liquid eye shadow, one stroke and blending it out with your finger has you good to go.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Serum (get it here!)
So I never had a serum in my daily skincare routine and I felt like as I was getting later into my 20's that I really should incorporate one. This one intrigued me the most when I saw it come out recently so I decided to try it. I've never used a serum before so I have nothing else to compare it to, but it is definitely making my skin feel incredibly smooth and appear glowing after about only a week of use. I think I'm sticking with this one!

DryBar Texas Tea Volumizing Spray (get it here!)
DryBar used this in my hair when I got it done for a black tie wedding in August, and I've been addicted ever since. I spray it on the roots of my hair when I get out of the shower, and it's really been great in giving my flat hair some extra volume.

OPI Skating on Thin-Iceland (get it here!)
From OPI's new Nordic collection for fall, it is the perfect fall plum purple. It's definitely a true plum purple; it doesn't lean black or any other color. I didn't have anything quite like it in my collection, so I picked it up!

Fashion
J.Crew Herringbone Vest (get it here!)
After legitimately trying to hunt this vest down for years after it sold out initially on JCrew.com, I found it on the JCrew Factory website. I was already able to wear it to the cider mill this fall, and I know it will be my favorite fall staple this year.

Baublebar Dipper Ear Cuff Set (get it here!)
This earring set is a delicate play on the ear cuff trend, as it's not a massive ear cuff. It's also the only one I've been able to get to stay on my ear! I also love the rose gold.

Can you believe we're already in October?! I'm so excited: sweater weather & boot season!
