September 2016 Favorites

Hello Everybody and welcome to another Favorites blog! Sorry that this has taken a bit more time than usual for me to get this up. I just haven't been feeling that well and trying to get my life together and ready for my favorite time of year!

I started the month in California! We actually started it at Hogwarts in Universal Studios Hollywood. Vincent had been wanting to visit it again and so what better day to go to Hogwarts than September 1st? It was magical. We had the Disneyland Half Marathon and it went off without a hitch! It was so much fun. I love that Rain runs with me now and all the races!

After California it was home for a day then back for my last week in Orlando working. I did apply for the Mom Panelist on the Disney website. I never heard a call back so I'll try again next year. Basically I worked and did every day things while back in Orlando.

With the arrival of September, came the arrival of Alabama football season and it has been amazing season so far! Lots of talents, and some ego. And even an ax wielding player on the side lines this year! Alabama is never predictable, not sure why people try to predict us.

The week after that I went back home for a 5 and half days. I went to work, and enjoyed my regular life back in Alabama. Well semi normal. Because one of my jobs took me on a field (charter bus style) to Mississippi to visit Ashley Furniture warehouse and factory. It was unreal to know that the factory is one of the biggest in the world and it is growing!

Then came something I have been looking forward for over a year. My trip to Paris to run the inaugural Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. So much has happened in the world since they announced it. I was scared I wouldn't be able to go and there quite a few that didn't want me to go. But I did. In tow was Frankie and Rain. We had a blast in London AND Paris! It couldn't have been more perfect. And if you want my complete review of it go here to my post: Disneyland Paris Weekend Questions Answered.

Our flight back home was quick to me. I still slept a lot and managed to make a list of costumes that I can choose from this year (and more on that later.) I did in fact head on to work that afternoon. I do not regret going straight in to work. The last Thursday of September I helped with the soup kitchen and it was very shocking. Knowing that I helped fill 130 plates in 30 minutes is astounding to me. I do believe that I will be helping in the future as well.

Something that has been in the works for a while, but it just now coming to fruition is mine and A Pop of Jess's family going full time RV living with some friends and family of ours next year. We have been researching a lot and having nightly meetings, watching videos, and talking to people about their RVs. 

Eye Makeup Product -

Too Faced Cat Eyes - It has been a Too Faced year for me. This palette traveled the globe with me. It was perfect because Europe already felt and looked like fall. This went well with the outfits I had packed and the scenery. Perfect harmony!

Makeup Brush -

Coastal Scents Classic Blender Brush Natural - This is one that I received in my ipsy. I really like it for what it is intended for, blending! It does the job just like I need it to. I really don't care for craziness in brushes. Just get the job done!

Face Makeup Product -

BORN THIS WAY UNDETECTABLE MEDIUM-TO-FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION - This is newly found for me! I finally ran out of the foundation I was wearing and switched to this. I love it! It gives a very nice matte finish and is very lightweight for it to be a medium to full coverage.

Lip Product -

Smith and Cult Lip Gloss The Warning - I adore this lip lacquer. I am in love with this formula and the color. The shine that comes with this product is amazing! I want it in all colors... NOW! I will be purchasing more!

Hair Care Product -

Bumble and Bumble Full potential travel set - I don't mind trying new products on the go. I know a lot of people are oppose to it. But I like to try new hair stuff. This was awesome for the trip to California at the beginning. I did not take this to London or Paris. I used different stuff on that trip

Skincare -

GINZING™ ENERGY-BOOSTING MOISTURIZER - My skin is back to looking more alive. I have started purchasing from Origins again and I glad I have. My skin is happy again. It really wakes up with this moisturizer.

Shower/Bath Product -

Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb - I picked up a bunch of Lush goodies while we were in London! I bought the entire Fall line from Lush because I have a problem and I am fully admitting it. I am a Lushie through and through. This gives the bathtub an amazing color and was fun!

Game -

Bubble Witch Saga - I have been playing this game for years. I also play the second one but I return to this one every year around this time. There is nothing like playing this during the Halloween season. It's spooky and a lot of fun.

YouTube Channel/YouTuber -

SACCONEJOLYs - I go back and forth on this family. I will watch for a little bit then I'll stop. I really like it that they are pregnant again. They take such good care of their children!

Book/Story -

The Morning Miracle - I heard about this book long before I had heard of Boho Berry. I had heard about this book for "business," "life," and "family." But it was thanks to Boho Berry that I finally took the plunge and read it. I really like it and the ways of setting of life goals and making sure I can achieve things one level at a time.

Song/Album -

The Phantom of the Opera - I prefer the original recording cast. But when we seen the Phantom of the Opera in London, I felt the music in my bones. There is just something about seeing it in person. I will forever love the experience we had watching it in person.

Movie -

Practical Magic - Frankie and I both love witchy things and this movie is amazing! Plus I have a soft spot for Sandra Bullock movies and this is one of my favorites of hers. It got me into the Halloween spirit for sure!

Pinterest Pin -

Disney Moment -

Disneyland Paris with Frankie! It was amazingly romantic and fun for us. We enjoyed the sites and the different to us Disneyland park. I cannot wait to go back.

Running/Fitness -

Running the inaugural Disneyland Paris half marathon! I made history! How amazing is that?! It feels amazing to have that medal in my collection now. Running in a different country was so wonderful.

Food -

Salsa... I promise ever since I went on my medicine to help with my female trouble, I have been craving anything with tomato... Pizza, salsa, cheese sticks with marina. It is has been an ongoing craving. Arby's is my friend and a jar of salsa is the next best thing.

Spotlight Etsy Shop -

BeyondPaperFlowers - Her stickers are so freaking cute and unique. I bought a ton from her and loved the a lot. I know I am going to purchase again, and very soon. Her grab bags are so amazing!!!! Plus the sampler she has for sale is also amazing!
