Hello, September! Fall officially begins this month and I can already feel the change in the air… and the leaves! It could also be that I am 7+ months pregnant and that change is brewing too. Not much is going on this month, but at the same time so much is! We are trying to finish the final preparations before the babies get here - wish us luck! In the meantime, here are a few things I’ve been loving lately…

  1. CB2 Brooks Ribbed Organic Cotton Sheets. When I bought this new rug for our bathroom, I decided to get new towels too. We have had the same ones since we got married (almost 5 years ago) and though there is nothing wrong with them, our cats have scratched at them a bit. For some reason, organic cotton black towels are really hard to find. I ordered some back in June that were supposed to arrive in July, but they kept getting pushed out in delivery. I finally cancelled the order and found these. I need to wash them a couple more times, but I love the way they look and feel!

  2. Bamboo Squatty Potty. We have been using a squatty potty for several years now and swear by it. Recently we moved our original one into the powder bathroom and upgraded the one in our bathroom to this sweet bamboo one. This one comes in a 7” / 9” option that flips either way. Pretty cool!

  3. Electric Picks Faith Necklace. (c/o) My friend Lauren Kay Sims collaborated with Electric Picks and this necklace is my favorite of their collection together. It is such a pretty and dainty cross. I love wearing it alone and layering it with others.

  4. The Dairy Fairy Ruby Bra. (c/o) With pregnancy, my breasts have grown significantly. I am unsure what size they will end up when everything is said and done, so I haven’t wanted to invest in new β€œreal” bras… I’d rather get nursing bras so they are useful and I can wear them now. I just bought another one, but I love the Dairy Fairy brand for the mission and product. This one is as equally pretty as it is functional.

  5. Hiccapop Wedge Pillow. This pillow has been a lifesaver for me. I use it every night under my belly for support on my side, even with my other pillows. It also works well as a computer prop-up pillow. It is on the smaller side so it is easier to travel with - I have taken it on the plane and it works well there too. The outer cover zips off and is easy to clean / throw in the washing machine.

  6. Madewell Knotted Headband. I know that I am about to need easy / chic ways to keep my hair out of my face. I really liked this for fall and think it will look so cute with jeans or dresses and elevate a β€œmom sweats” look too.

  7. Primally Pure Clarifying Bar. (c/o) Primally Pure just launched Skin Specific Collections and they are so good! I plan on reviewing them all, but wanted to go ahead and share this bar, because it is my favorite right now. I love how cleansing it is, not to mention it smells amazing. It also comes in Soothing Bar and Plumping Bar. Side note I also got this soap dish and I think it matches our squatty potty well ;)

  8. Organizer Baskets. I bought these for the nursery, but wanted to share them, as I think they are great quality and are a good price. Baskets can be SO expensive, so I thought these were a steal.

  9. Ere Perez Chamomile Eyeshadow Palette in Lovely. (c/o) I am not a huge eyeshadow person, but these neutrals are right up my alley. I like how they go with anything and make me feel glam. What I typically use is a light shimmer, so these give me a little oomph without being too crazy.

  10. Nursery Works Sleepytime Rocker. (c/o) This is another sneak peak from our nursery, but I really like it and wanted to go ahead and share it! It is wider than the average rocker and has a high quality / durable fabric, while being more on the non-toxic spectrum. Can’t wait to show you everything!
