The Map of Time By: Felix J Palma (Did not Fini

This month was a struggle book wise. I had a hard time wanting to read and I had a hard time find a book that really got me excited. Maybe it’s because school started again, maybe it’s because my wedding is coming up, maybe it’s because I was on such a roll at the beginning of the year. Either way, I definitely wasn’t excited until I picked up Why Not Me? It is hands down the best book I read this month and I highly recommend it.


Beauty Protector Protect & Oil ($25.95)

I received this product in my Birchbox and fell in love. It makes my hair so soft and I love the way it looks when I use it. I purchased a full size this month and am excited to make it a part of my every day hair routine. I typically use it on wet hair, mixed in with a curl cream, but I am excited to tri ton dry hair too.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita ($21.00)

I bought this lipstick as a potential wedding day lipstick, and while I ended up picking something else, I am in love with this color! As is evident by a lot of the colors I review on my blog, I love a bold lip. However, for my wedding day I wanted something more subtle/natural. The girls at Sephora helped me find this lipstick. While I was hesitant about trying it at first (I am very wary of anything with a brown tint) it has turned out to be an amazing nude. My lips are very pigmented, so it’s difficult for me to find a nude that doesn’t just disappear on my lips. This enhances my lip color and is absolutely beautiful.



Specifically the Gluten Free Mac & Cheese with Uncured Bacon. I LOVE Mac & Cheese. It is possibly one of my favorite foods and it’s really difficult to find a good microwavable version. I decided to try this one, even though I was a little wary of it being gluten free, and it’s really good! It doesn’t taste any different than regular Mac & Cheese.

Not too many Buys this month as the wedding is coming up, so I need to be careful with my money!


College Football

College football season is back! Over labor day the fiancé and I took a trip to Dallas with a few of my friends to see the Wisconsin vs Alabama game and it was so much fun! It was a great way to kick off the football season, even though Wisconsin lost. Florida is 4-0 so far, so that’s always exciting too! I can’t wait to lounge my Saturdays away in front of the TV.


My wedding is in a week and a half! My life has been non-stop wedding stuff, so you might not hear from me much within the next few weeks. I bought some amazing bridesmaid gifts and I can’t wait to give them to all of my girls. My dress is almost done, and I have my makeup picked out and purchased. Everything is falling into place and I’m starting to get really excited!
