September Faves

HELLO, October! Boy, am I glad to be one month closer to chilly weather and all things fall!  September was a great month, but I can't say I'm not excited to start October.  This month means cozy sweaters,  pumpkin patches, and allllll the PSL's. (can I get an amen?)

As we move into a new month, I want to re-cap a few of my favorite things from last month for you guys!

These are some of the products I used pretty much every day. I've also included what I've been listening to along with a few of my favorite blogs I've been keeping up with!

First off, these super cute birthday cards from Trader Joe's! The best part? They were only 99 cents! I stocked up on these beauties and have already given out a couple.  I think they're nicer than any 99 cent card you can get anywhere else, and they're made with recycled paper! It's a win-win, you guys.

Next up are these two products - I've been using these on the reg.  The Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise has easily become my favorite mascara.  It's rumored to be a dupe for the Too Faced "Better Than Sex" Mascara, and I have to say - it's pretty stinkin' close! I'll definitely continue using this!

Another makeup product I've been loving is the NYX Micro Brow Pencil.  You guys, this is hands down the BEST drugstore dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz! I've used the Brow Wiz for the last year or two and this NYX pencil is almost better. Yeah, I said it! You have got to try these for yourself.  I highly recommend!

One thing I have been LIVING in is this Calvin Klein robe.  There is nothing I love more than coming home from a long day at work and throwing this on.  It's the softest, coziest robe and I got it at TJ Maxx for less than $30!  It. Is. A. Must.

Finally, my most favorite part of September was getting to use our new coffee bar! My roommate, Kelly, and I had so much fun putting together this cute lil corner of the house.  We found the blue hutch at Home Goods for less than $150!  The two baskets underneath are from Target, and we keep our k-cups and coffee filters in them.  The gold wire basket is from Goodwill, and the chalk board is from Hobby Lobby!

To wrap up this month's favorites, I want to give shout-out to a few of the blogs I've been loving! This month, I've been hooked on Basically Becca Sue and WifeTalk.  Both of them are run by two of the sweetest girls and I love keeping up with their lives! Becca blogs all the way from California, and Jessie captures all of her favorite moments here in Nashville with her newborn baby girl, Nolie.  

Make sure to check them out, along with Bailey Basham over at and Reed Coffman at  Both Bailey and Reed preach great encouragement through their blogs, and you'll definitely love what they've got to say.

As a "thank you" for all your encouragement to this new adventure of a blog I've started, I want to give a Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara and NYX Brow Pencil away to one of my readers! All you have to do to enter the giveaway is like LB In The City on Facebook and like/tag 2 friends in my post on Instagram! This is open to all US residents, and I'll announce the winner on Wednesday! Good luck!
