Back to School

The time has come for Back to School. Finally! The summer is almost over, only a few more weeks (hopefully) left of terrible heat and humidity. I am going back to school as a full-time Psychology student. I am excited and anxious to get back to my studies.

Because it is going to be so hot the first couple weeks of school I plan to do a minimal make-up look. Bare-faced, if you will. Just some foundation, a luminizer on the cheeks along with a light blush, mascara and filling in my eyebrows wherever needed. I never feel like wearing a lot of make-up when it is warm out and it is hard for me to ensure it will stay on all day anyway.

Make-up by Bobbi Brown

 For girls going to school I always recommend taking a powder around with them to just blot out any shine and maybe rice paper sheets. I don't really touch-up my make-up throughout the day so I set it in the morning with my Urban Decay All Night Setting Spray and it really keeps my make-up locked on. No worries!

Right now I am battling a cold so I will be popping cough drops like candy to get myself through the day. But, the exciting part is - Starbucks has welcome back the Pumpkin Spice Latte! It is available to everyone now. I am definitely going to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte tomorrow, with soy and no whip to help my throat. We're one step closer to fall, ladies and gents!

I am so excited for the fall looks I've seen in the magazines. I just purchased the Vogue September issue and I am excited to page through it. I just read online that The September Issues are now bigger than they were last year. Is the economy finally starting to turn around? Let's hope so. I have a shipment of business cards coming in and I plan to use the looks that are on the models in a look book portfolio for people to choose out of when they ask me to do their make-up. It's a good way to ensure my magazines don't go to waste after I've drooled over them enough!

I'm going to check out that UD Spray next time I order from Sephora, my makeup is horrible at pretty much disappearing by the end of the day :\ Andy's going to be so excited about the pumpkin spice latte, for sure. I bought most of my September issues this past weekend but haven't had a chance to look through them, I can't wait though. I'm trying to get my hands on Australia Vogue because I loved one of the editorials they had. Gorgeous! Ooh, can't wait to see what your business cards look like :D

Definitely check it out. It's by Skindinavia, they're known for their setting sprays. I was actually going to try one from the Skindinavia line since I like this one so much.
The Starbucks on campus at my school didn't get the Pumpkin Spice syrup for some odd reason so I still haven't gotten one, but the Starbucks near my house has it. I'm really craving all the fall drinks - it's just been too hot here to get any of them :/

I preach the gospel of setting spray to everyone I come in contact with.
