September has been a whirlwind month for me. This month brought, lots of new and exciting things, as well as some big challenges. I've finally had enough downtime that I have been able to write and schedule several posts for October. This month I've found a few new favorites to share.
Sonia Kashuk Makeup Brushes
Who doesn't love a little bit of classy cheetah print? I recently upgraded from my old e.l.f. brushes to these beauties. They are incredibly soft and have minimal fallout. My favorite brush from the set is the eye shadow blending brush, it blends with minimal effort. This set is from Target and unfortunately they are limited edition. Also, I could not find this particular set on the Target website, but there are several similar sets available.
Yoga is a favorite every month, but I haven't yet found a studio here. In high school I used to use YouTube yoga videos at home all the time. YouTube now has so many more wonderful yoga channels, its an endless wealth of resources and this month I have found so many yoga YouTubers that are fantastic. Yoga With Adriene and Sarah Beth Yoga are two of my current favorites.
100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People by Susan Weinschenk
I would not consider myself a designer, but I loved this book. It breaks down the science of how people read, see, remember and think. It's a book anyone interested in design would enjoy, although it did take a while to get through simply because there is a lot of information thrown in there. I found myself wanting to take a break after a chapter or two in order to absorb and retain the information.
Did you know Ikea has a stationary/ paper goods section? This was totally news to me. Sorry if I'm so late on this discovery. When I spotted this section in Ikea I had to resist the urge to grab all of the washi tape and party decorations. Ikea's notebooks are inexpensive and great for writing down thoughts. All of the pages are perforated so unneeded pages can be removed without leaving behind a mess.
What are you looking forward to this month?
