*Thank you to Popsugar Must Have for partnering on this post. All opinions are my own.

Popsugar sent me another Must Have Box this month and it was filled to the brim with lots of fashion/beauty related products. So obviously I was beyond stoked. This September #MustHaveBox had a Jack and Lucy fedora hat, Flint retractable lint roller, GFB dark chocolate coconut bites (not pictured because I ate them all before taking this... oops), NCLA mani E.R. kit, Briogeo deep conditioning mask, and Smith & Cult lip gloss

After I ate my GFB bites, I started testing out the products. My absolute favorite of them all is the Briogeo hair mask. My hair has gotten so lackluster and dry since I've been growing it out for so long. The product is basically like a thick shea butter lotion for your hair. It is so hydrating and my hair feels amazingly soft and the shine has returned after just one use as evidenced in the photo below! It is so affordable so I know even when I run out, I'll be purchasing it again and again and again.

I love Popsugar's monthly subscription boxes because it introduces me to products I might not normally know about or try out on my own. If you guys are interested in getting your own box, use code SHOP5 for $5.00 off your first box. Get your own box by clicking HERE!

Fall in here! Fall is here! My absolute favorite season to dress for. I'm not sure I'll be able to get away with layered goodness and cozy sweaters here in Arizona, but we shall see!

I always like to pick up a few new pieces with the start of each new season, and this fall seems to have some stand-out trends. Ruffles, velvet, slip dresses, lace, and faux fur all top my list of favorite fall trends. I must admit that I purchased three of these items from this collage already (#shopaholicprobz), so you can be on the lookout for some cutesy fall looks very soon.

I'm off to run a bunch of errands, including getting my new iPhone. I had to get a new phone because my GPS/location sensor stopped working and they aren't able to fix it. Silliest thing ever, I know. But if there's anything everyone knows about me, it's that I'm directionally challenged and completely lost without my GPS. Can't wait to be a fully functioning human with a fully functioning phone again! xoxo

Dark, fall floral... am I right? It's kind of the best. I wore this little number to one of my dear friend's backyard wedding a few weeks back in California. She was the dreamiest bride and her wedding/reception was DIY perfection. We actually went to the LA flower market the day before and got all her flowers and put together everything ourselves. It was borderline stressful, but she was able to save soooooo much money and it turned out pretty dang well if I say so myself! So basically I'm a florist now. ;)

Kidding. It is so much work and we kept giving props to the real florists out there who do stuff like that all the freaking time. In another life, I'd love to learn how to do that kind of stuff for real though. Flowers = my heaven. 

Also, if you like this dress or have been eye-balling something else at ANTHROPOLOGIE, they're giving 20% off your purchase right now so go, go, go!

Have a cute weekend! xoxo
