Reading Lately #5

currently reading books

I feel like it took me while to get to this post…I read a few books that took me way longer to read than expected! It’s getting close to the end of the year which means I need to get going to reach my reading goal. Here we have the latest crop of books I’ve read. Hopefully this post can inspire you to read more or find some new books to add to your list!


September Empties 2015

Beginning of October…you know what that means! It’s time for September Empties, and coming next week will be favorites! I thought I was having a super light empties month, but when it came time to snap pictures for this post I realized I had enough things to justify writing about it. I always manage to use up 5-6 things, even if some of them are small!


A Few Fall Make Up Picks

Can you believe it? It’s FALL!! This month really flew by for me since I was barely home. I SHOULD be posting a favorites or empties today, but the end of the month came as a surprise, and I’m not ready yet! Since I have so much make up, I really like to rotate things around seasonally. I don’t need to have every lipstick or blush out since I know I won’t touch some of them. Now that the weather is getting cooler I’m rotating in some of my fall shades. These are just a few I’m sure I’ll be reaching for tons over the next 2 months.


Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Today, I’ve got one of my newest beauty obsessions for you. It’s a clay mask, but not just any clay mask. It’s 1 pound of Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay, AKA Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. I’d seen this mentioned a few times on blogs, and kept reading rave reviews on, but it took me awhile to take the plunge. A pound of clay? It’s a little scary. But use it a few times, and you’ll see why it’s the “World’s most powerful facial”.


Derma E Tea Tree and E Antiseptic Creme

Today I’ve got another skincare review for ya! I don’t buy new make up too often, but these days I’ve been on a huge skincare kick. I must try them all! I had heard about Derma E through the grapevine, but heard a rave review from my favorite YouTuber Kendra about this product, and thought it sounded like exactly what I needed. So happy to discover a new healthy skincare brand, especially one I can get so easily from Vitacost!
