September Favorites: A Little Bit of Everything

It’s Oct. 1, and I’m back, people!

Ryan and I had a great time in Las Vegas – they aren’t kidding when they say that it’s the city where the party never stops. This probably is the first vacation where I’ve ever come home exhausted, but I guess that means that we lived it up and had lots of fun! Thanks for bearing with me as I get back into the groove of things – I should be back on my regular blogging schedule from here on out, but forgive me if I’m absent for a day or two as I catch up.

On that note, it’s time for another month of favorites! Since September was hectic getting ready for vacation and with house hunting, I didn’t try many beauty products or have anything that really stood out as a favorite item. So for this month, I am mixing up this post a bit and sharing my favorites from across the board.

Favorite Song:“Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift. Let’s face it – whether you love Taylor Swift or can’t stand her, this song is pretty damn catchy. I really can’t get enough of it. The cute music video is an added bonus.

Favorite DIY: Fall Wreath DIY Using a Wooden Frame. Even though I switched up the flower pins on my burlap initial wreath, I’m still not quite thrilled with it’s overall feel for fall. I love the unique take on this wreath using a frame instead of a traditional wreath form – I’ll be picking up the supplies for this on my next trip to Michael’s!

Favorite Recipe: Le Man & Wife Baked Spaghetti Pie. This is an oldie but a goodie in our household. I made it for the first time in nearly a year before we left for vacation, and it never ceases to taste amazing. I add a pound of ground meat to the recipe to make it more man friendly – Ryan enjoys the leftovers for days!

Favorite TV Show: Project Runway. Even though all my favorite shows are back on now, Project Runway still holds the top spot in my book. This season has been exceptional – if you’ve been watching, who’s your favorite designer? Hands down, I think Kini should win. I also never can get enough of Nina Garcia’s comments. She’s the best.

Favorite Fall Mantel: Seasonal Elegance: Fall Mantel. Aimee from Aimlessly Elegant killed it with her fall mantel decor. I’m definitely going to take her ideas and translate it to our own mantel at home. Plus, how genius is it that she used a shelf above her TV as a fake mantel since they don’t have a real one?!

Favorite Upcoming Movie Release: Gone Girl. Okay, I truly hated this book. Like, I was super ticked when it was over because I was left unfulfilled, and I wanted the main female character to drop dead. So, in that case, the book is pretty amazing because I’m pretty sure that’s how the author intended for readers to feel since pretty much all the characters involved are despicable people. Anyways, the movie looks pretty awesome and intense – I think it will do the book justice.

Favorite Scent: Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. This candle has been burning all day, every day in our house, and my mom recently got the antibacterial soap for me, too. It just smells so. good. It’s the quintessential scent for fall.

What were you loving throughout September?
