This Week’s Favorites

 
First of all, this past week has been very trying for my community. The devastation from Hurricane Matthew has been life-changing for so many of my neighbors and friends. I ask that you keep everyone who is having to deal with losing a home or has been displaced due to flood waters in your thoughts and prayers. 
On to my favorites…
Books
I am OBSESSED with the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series. This is the second book, and it’s my favorite. It’s a great mixture of magic and mystery and sci-fi and “strange things” and spookiness. Plus, the movie is in theatres and it’s pretty cute! 
Wild and Free has completely changed how I see myself. It has reminded me where to place value and priority in my life and given me perspective when I feel like I’m inadequate or a little too “extra”. I’d recommend this 100%. 
Beauty
This Sephora green tea face mask has been an item on my “want” list for a while. I always feel so pampered after trying new face masks. I’m so excited to try my first sheet face mask. This one in particular claims to be mattifying and anti-blemish. YAS SEPHORA! Help a girl OUT! 
I initially got a sample of this Philosophy Purity facial cleanser in a sample bag I purchased from Sephora and quickly fell in love so I bought the 16oz bottle! It removes make-up so well and makes my skin feel hydrated without being oily and has the most pleasant scent. Do yourself a favor and pick some up! 
Smell Good
If you are basic like me you already know what the most anticipated Fall candle is…Leaves. Duh. It has notes of crisp red apple, golden nectar, and warm clove spice. It’s like Fall in a candle. I purchased this from Bath and Body Works along with another scent which isn’t pictured, but, y’all pray for me, I like the other one more. It’s called Sweater Weather and I may end up on My Strange Addiction for hoarding so many candles of that scent. I could eat them. So yummy! Swing by B&BW. They are basically running the show and winning the game right now. 
If you have any book recommendations let me know in the comments! I’ve been in a book rut and these two books have finally got me out of it. So now I want to read EVERYTHING!!
