September 2018



I walked into the Loft this past week to do some browsing after a meeting I had. I typically don’t shop at the Loft (truth be told I think they’re kind of expensive!) but decided to give it a try. They currently have a ton of cute sale items at an extra 40% off. Some items are only $5!. I tried on a bunch of stuff from the sale rack including these tops. A lot of the items on sale could be seen as more for summer, but there are some really good basics that could be worn well into fall and winter, especially the tees and camis —- perfect for layering! Even the dresses I linked can be worn with denim jackets, cardigans, or other cute fall coats. I sorted everything I really like into categories below (because ya’ll know I LOVE organization).


What do you guys think of the Loft? I’m often looking for work attire and honestly struggle to find good places that have dress outfits that I like. I’d love to hear your favorite places to shop for work wear!


Hope you guys had an extra special weekend! Xo, Brooke











Current Makeup Products I’m Using


The past few weeks I’ve been looking for new makeup products to try out. Makeup is ever changing so every few months I like to head to Ulta or Sephora to browse recent beauty items. I actually use a lot of the same products, but when the season changes I try to spice it up!


MAC Prep + Prime Setting Spray

A great spray to set make up and give your face a dewy finish. I’ve used several other primers and setting sprays that feel thick and this one is very lightweight and refreshing!


Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder

The best powder I’ve ever used! It doesn’t go on cakey and it’s super smooth and helps my makeup stay put (unless it’s 90 degrees like today).


Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer

If you’ve been following me a while you know this is my #1 bronzer! It stays put and contours so nicely. I’m pretty pale so this adds some color and dimension.


Morphe 9C Jewel Crew Eyeshadow Palette

This is by far my favorite shadow palette for fall. The colors are rich and so gorgeous! Such a great steal for only $12!


Morphe Eyelid Primer

I just switched over to this primer. It’s lightweight yet really holds my eyeshadow well with no creasing.


NARS Blush

I normally just use bronzer but since using this blush I like adding some color to my cheeks! Super smooth and stays put.  I wear the Orgasm shade!


Morphe High Impact Highlighter

I used a liquid highlighter for a while but I felt like it didn’t really stay as long as a powder one, so this Morphe one is my new favorite. Extra is my go-to shade!


Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara

Ohhhh myyyy word ya’ll, this is the best mascara! It lengthens and separates so good and wait for it — it’s only $5!


NYX Professional Makeup Super Skinny Eye Marker

I picked this up on a whim and am actually not crazy about it! It goes on nice, but doesn’t stay as well as I’d hoped. The NYX Vinyl Liquid Liner is way better and stays so well.


Lorac Alter Ego Lip Gloss

I’ve used this gloss in the Beach Babe shade all summer and it’s the perfect nude to carry into the fall and winter!



Ulta is having a 21 Days of Beauty Sale so I have a feeling I’ll be stopping there several more times this month and Sephora extended their Labor Day Sale! So much makeup, such little time lol. Xo, Brooke
