Hello everyone! I am going to warn you all that the September Favorites and the October Favorites post will be riddled with accessories to make it look like fall threw up all over the blog. (sorry not sorry!) I have been counting down the days to fall since the 90 degree days would not persist. So without further ado, here’s my favorites for the month of September.
Emma in the Night
I got this book from Book of the Month when I collaborated with them on How I Read for Fun in College. This is a great book if you’re looking for something that will hook you from the very start. Emma in the Night is a story about two sisters who disappeared three years ago and one day the younger sister appears. As she beings her story on her harrowing escape, there are holes that the psychologist is seeing. Follow different viewpoints as you try and find out what is real, and where Emma is. A must read during fall nights!
Found at Bath and Body Works and Sephora, this salve is perfect to put in my backpack when my dry lips are itching for a bit of color. For only five bucks, this is the perfect accessory that will last me years… or until I misplace it!
Although September packed the heat weather-wise, I was thrilled to be able to attend a couple of outdoor festivals in the city. I was able to go to a world and food music festival ($1 food items for blocks — heck yes!), and Oktoberfest. So, as the cooler months roll in, be sure to take advantage of those last days exploring your city outside.
If you’re like me, you’re on your phone constantly while at school. Even if there’s nothing interesting to look at, sometimes it just happens when a lecture has been going on for an hour and a half. Pocket Points is an app that give you points for the times you are on campus WiFi and not on your phone. Then you can use these points to buy free pizza, BOGO Insomnia cookies, and tons more! The idea is to get students to pay attention in class rather than scrolling on their phone. As if I needed another incentive!
If you haven’t already, I highly recommend you check it out. And if you want to give me credit for showing you this great app, use my promo code vqRm@ and we’ll both get 10 points (You can find where to submit the promo code under the “free points” tab)!
Anyone else love cuddling up to a moving documentary? Chasing Coral is the most inspiring documentary that I’ve watched since Blackfish. The narrator takes you on a journey as you discover just how fast the coral is dying, and why it’s so important that it doesn’t. As someone who had an Environmental Studies minor until this year, I’ll admit, I was so moved that some tears were shed!
And there was my hodgepodge of September Favorites! Let me know what you’ve been loving this month.
