So Obsessed With: Fall 2014 Edition

Some of my favorite posts are ones where bloggers highlight the products they're loving lately or the things they're currently coveting. Posts like that always put new products on my radar and give me great ideas for gifts. I love this kind of content so much that I decided to start incorporating it into my blog by highlighting my loves and lusts and each season. Rather than give it a creative name, I thought my blog name was more fitting. So, here's what I'm so obsessed with this fall:


1. Butter London Nail Lacquer in Branwen's Feather and British Racing Green ($15) - Despite the price tag, Butter London is my absolute favorite nail polish. These are two of my favorite dark polishes from them, and they are perfect for fall! These have just enough shimmer to stand out while still being appropriate for work.

2. Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil in Everlasting Honey ($18) - I've never tried this before, but I love the Josie Maran products I currently own. This looks gorgeous in the pictures I've seen - just the right amount of color! I don't think I'd use this for my cheeks, but I would totally try it for my lips.

3. Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Honey Bath ($45) - This is one of my favorite things to buy as a gift. All of the scents are wonderful, but this one is delicious. I take a bath all the time, so these don't last long in my house!

4. YSL Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner in Black ($30) - I used to always use cream eyeliner, but I switched to pencils for a few years. I kept wanting something more pigmented, so I bought this one based on the reviews I read. It was the perfect choice! It looks great, lasts all day, doesn't smudge and hasn't dried out even with lots of use.

5. Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Cordura ($35) - While I love the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I find myself reaching for this eyeshadow duo most often. The colors are just perfect on, and I always kept compliments when I wear it. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the choices in bigger palettes, so this is just right!

6. Sam Edelman Penny Boot in Black ($169.60) - I need some dressier black books, and these are calling my name! I love the Sam Edelman flats that I own, so hopefully these are just as gorgeous in person. I love that they have an equestrian feel without looking costume-y.

7. Street Level Reversible Faux Leather Tote ($48) - This has great review on Nordstrom, which makes me so happy because it's a great price! I love solid metallic totes because they go with almost everything. The size looks perfect for carrying my laptop, too. 

8. Kate Spade Seriously Darling Bangle ($78) - My best friend bought me a Kate Spade bangle as a gift, and I've wanted another ever since. I'm a huge fan of wearing a big stack of bracelets, and I want to add this one to my arm. This saying is my favorite! It says "Pretty Major" on the inside, too, which I love.

9. Moon & Lola Seia Ring ($28) - I have two Moon & Lola necklaces, but I've got my eye on this ring. I love classic and simple pieces, and this bits the bill. This would look great with a statement ring on another finger!

10. Blue Floral Kantha Infinity Scarf ($19.99) - I'm obsessed with anything and everything kantha (a type of embroidery stitch), so I freaked out when I found this scarf at World Market. I love the bold color and muted floral pattern. This will look so great with a bunch of my favorite shirts!

11. Kate Spade Small Square Studs in Turquoise ($38) - While I own quite a few pairs of earrings, I always end up wearing the same few pairs. I love the simplicity and understated quality of studs, but I love that the color totally pops with these. They're bold but not too over-the-top.


12. Love, Rosie Movie - I cannot wait to see this movie! I frequently browse YouTube for new movie trailers, and I always end wanting to see ones that either won't be in theaters anytime soon or will have a limited release. I spotted this months ago, and I'm so glad it's finally time for it to release. It looks adorable!

13. Reign: The Complete First Season - When this premiered last season, I stopped in the middle of the first episode. I couldn't get past the awful costumes and hairstyles. Then, it showed up on Netflix... which gave me the perfect chance to try again. I started binge watching, and now I'm hooked!

14. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and Reese's Pumpkins - Mmm... I love all things pumpkin in the fall! Seasonal Reese's are the best, and I go through bags of them in October. Struggle. And I'm not really a coffee fan, but I fall under the spell of pumpkin-flavored things in the fall and can't resist sipping on this drink.

15. Little Big Town's Pain Killer ($11.99) and Taylor Swift's 1989 ($12.99) - Even though I don't listen to a lot of country music, I loved Little Big Town's last album. I'm so excited for this release and hope it lives up to my expectations. As for Taylor Swift... do I even need to explain? It's my most-anticipated album of 2014.

16. Unspoken and The Boleyn King ($15-18) - I just read through the entire Lynburn Legacy series, and I'm obsessed. It's also perfect for fall - a moody and romantic Gothic mystery that made me so emotional! I've been intrigued about The Boleyn King for a while now, and I think this is the best season for historical fiction.

  1. Oooh Branwen's Feather is such a cool nail polish name! I always thought it'd be fun to be the person who comes up with those haha. My sister has a lot of Butter London polishes, I'll have to get some. I have a purple that looks almost exactly like that which I adore. Maybe I'll paint my nails tonight!

    I'm VERY intrigued by the Honey Bath!! Is it like bubble bath? How do you use it? It's a great container.

    O.M.G I want that bag!! And those earrings! You're really making me want to say eff it and Treat Yo'Self hahah. Or put them on a holiday list at least :)

    I might have to try Reign, I was so excited at first and then when I heard how anachronistic it is in almost every way that turned me off. But you're not the first person to tell me you got hooked on it!

    Loveeeee this feature! It's really fun and diverse!

  2. I read somewhere (facebook maybe?) that Starbucks is released their first new drink in a few years! Chestnut Praline Latte. Um, yes.

    Oh gosh, I have a ton of earrings too but tend to go for the same few pairs. & that pair is stunning! Simple, but beautiful - and that color is gorgeous!

  5. I've wondered how Butter London is compared to Essie. I like Essie but don't use it exclusively, but I haven't bought Butter yet because it is a little more expensive. But it is really pretty! I'll buy it if it is at least as good as Essie or better. ?? I'm assuming it is because you highlighted it, haha.
