Goodbye September, Hello October

October. Oh, where has the time gone? It’s finally fall. Finally! I’ve been looking forward to this time of year since summer began. The heat is unbearable here and it’s still pretty hot, but the mornings are now filled with cool breezes.

September was quite a month. Lots of things happened. Good things! For one, my baby brother Matty was born on the 26th. Just a couple of days ago. The days that followed were exhausting. It felt like I had him and I couldn’t imagine what my mother felt like. But she’s happy. We all are! I can’t be near him at the moment as I’m sick and babies are delicate creatures.

Anyways, with the start of a new month comes my monthly favorites! My favorites consist of books, t.v. shows, movies, music, ect. September was a good month as I discovered things I fell in love with all over again!

Favorite Book

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I have been waiting for over a year to read the highly anticipated sequel to The Raven Boys, and it’s next installment did not disappoint one bit. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC thanks to a friend. He sent me an extra copy he won and I was ecstatic! I devoured The Dream Thieves in a few sittings, completely enthralled in Stiefvater’s world.

The story mostly consisted in Ronan’s p.o.v. and I loved it! I loved getting to know what was in that brooding and dark mind of his. I also loved seeing Blue and Gansey’s relationship blossom. And Adam. ASDFGHJKL. My heart hurt for Adam.

The sequel was pos-it-tute-ly FANTASTIC and I CANNOT wait for the next book already! I need it, like I need air for my lungs!

Favorite Music

This month I completely fell in love with Fall Out Boys’ entire Save Rock and Roll album. It’s bloody brilliant! I couldn’t help myself from putting the entire album on repeat and listening to it over and over again. There are two songs that I specifically love, but the entire album is a work of art.

 

 

Favorite Movie

Tangled

Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a kid at heart. There are days when my mother catches me watching a Disney movie and she just shakes her head. What can I say? I have an innocent heart.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Disney movies have more meaning when we are older. We catch the subtle hints and the aspiring lessons each movie has for it’s audience.

I absolutely love Tangled. It’s not my first time watching it and it definitely is one of my favorite new Disney princess movies. I just love how it’s light, but very deep at the same time. Rapunzel has never known the outside of her tower and all she wants to do is see the lights that escape from the castle on her birthday.

I love her courage and her spastic nature. She makes me laugh and her love interest is great. I could totally fall in love with someone like Eugene a.k.a. Flynn Ryder.

If you haven’t seen this film, I really recommend it! Watch it with your kids, or watch it with friends. There’s always time to be a kid at heart. We need those days sometimes.

Favorite Show

Sleepy Hollow

I’ve only watched the pilot episode but it was SO GOOD. LIKE BLOODY GOOD. It takes a special kind of show to capture my attention within the first 10 minutes. And Sleepy Hollow is that show.

I love how the first episode was action-packed and suspenseful. I jumped a couple of times and was completely captivated by the entire concept of the show. I love lore, I’ve always been fascinated by it and Sleepy Hollow offers me my fix. ย I can’t wait to keep on watching because I know this will be one of my addictions favorite new shows this fall!

Favorite Beauty Products

The City Scape Collection

As a Maven member of Julep, I receive montly boxes. In September, I received the BareFace Oil Cleanser, that cleans away dirt, makeup residue, ect. I love the lemon scent and how clean my face feels after. It is oil, so I prefer to use it before bed. I made the mistake of washing my face before work and I felt my face was oily all day. So if you already have oily skin DO NOT USE in the morning, especially if you are going somewhere. Other than that, I really like the product!

I also receive two new nail polishes that I love! One was pure black and the other a metalic orange. They are great for a night out on the town.

I can’t wait for my monthly box for October! I’m always surprised because they are colors I wouldn’t normally choose.

Oh! I also really like the texture of the nail polish. It’s thick and glossy and is best to add a coat of clear polish to give it extra shine.

Favorite Accessory

In tribute to Catching Fire coming out in November I went and bought a recreation of Peeta’s Locket on Etsy. You all know that I’m compulsive when it comes to buying. It’s simmered exponentially, but I like to treat myself once in a while. It makes me feel better. I think shopping is equal to eating chocolate.

I absolutely love this locket and wear it whenever I go out. The amount of detail is exquisite and the locket truly opens! That was an added perk! I don’t usually like gold piece, but this is beautiful. I I’m really hoping that they incorporate the locket in the movie because that was a sweet moment between Katniss and Peeta; a real moment.

The locket is pos-it-tute-ly lovely and I can’t wait to wear it on premiere night for CF!

So those are all my monthly favorites. I know there wasn’t a lot this month, but I honestly haven’t been able to do much. I work a lot. More than I have before, and my days off are holy days. I like to lay in bed and read. That’s my idea of fun ๐Ÿ˜€

If you have your own monthly posts, let me know! Leave a link below and I’ll be happy to check it out!ย 

September you were nice to me. I hope October is grand!

P.S. The giveaway for a SIGNED copy of The Raven Boys will still be extended until the end of this month.

  1. Your brother is way too cute! :3 As for Fall Out Boy, I absolutely love them. They are an amazing band. I’ve watched Tangled, too. It was funny, but I didn’t quite understand the story? (Rather awkward as the storyline should be simple enough for children…) I am anticipating Disney’s new animated movie (Frozen).
    The trailer is brilliant. The main character is so awkward… ah. Love her already.

    • Thanks, Grandpa Marc!

      I’ve read Divergent. Haven’t gotten around to reading Insurgent. It’s currently collecting dust on my shelf. I have to read it ASAP though. You’d be proud of me. I bought my first ever Stephen King book last week! I’m planning to read it this month; tribute to Halloween ๐Ÿ˜€

      Enjoy your fall! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I swear you never show up in my feed any more, Emma. WHAT IS GOING ON, I MISS YOU! D:
    But anyway, I loved this post, as per usual.
    I love Tangled, as well. Definitely one of my all time favourite Disney movies, even if it isn’t a classic. It’s just perfect. And Eugene = โค
    I want that Peeta locket; it's so gorgeous I cannot even!
    And congrats on having a baby brother! I don't even know how cool that would be since I am the youngest child, but you must feel super old (haha, I kid, I kid).
    Anyway, hopefully your epic and awesome posts will show up in my feed more often, because I am going through Emma withdrawals right now!

    • I know…I don’t have internet still…so I try to go to the library as much as I can. I’m working full-time hours so it’s kind of hard to just come by. Though, I have been reading a lot, judging by my Goodreads feed! I’m just picking and choosing which books I review ๐Ÿ˜›

      I miss you! I miss reading your posts. I get them emailed and I read them on my phone but don’t log on to like them or anything…so sorry about that! :/

      Hehehe and thanks so much! ๐Ÿ˜€ The baby is so sweet and quiet. Do you have instagram? If you do…you should follow me: IG: deliriumruins

      • I don’t know how you can survive without internet D: D: I feel for you โค
        I'm glad you're keeping up with reading, though. It's very important ^.^

        I miss you, too! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ No need to apologise, lovely! Just knowing you're around is good enough ๐Ÿ˜€

        A quiet baby – you are lucky, haha. Sadly, I don't have Instagram. My phone is not capable of such things, haha. But if I ever get one, I will be sure to add you!
