September Progress Toward Goals

September was a whirlwind month.   We started off the month/Labor Day weekend with a trip to Chicago.  We were looking forward to cooler weather but it was still sooo hot!  We saw a lot in the short time we were there and I really enjoy the architecture tour in the river - probably my favorite thing we did.  I also traveled a ton for work - college recruiting trips to UT in Knoxville, WVU, and University of Florida.  We've also been to my parents and Adam's parents!  I need a weekend at home so I can get my life together and get back on scrapbooking!!
1.  Used up Products
  •  On a whim, last Black Friday, I bought the large bottle of bliss fabulous foaming face wash from the Sephora $10 deals.  Not impressed with it at all.  Was so excited to use this up and switch back to my tried and true face wash by Philosophy.
  • Blue Nyxx eye liner - HORRIBLE.  It doesn't work! No color combs off the stick.
  • Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Hazelnut Beige.  I've been using this for 3 years!  I mix it with a lighter shade because there's no way I'm that dark.  I really like this brand of foundation - good coverage and long wearing.  Plus, it lasts forever.  They did reformulate it so the package looks different now.

2.  Books & Magazine
6 magazines and 4 Audible books -- I need to get back to reading the stash of books in my house but I really only do Audible when I'm traveling (cars/planes) or getting ready in the morning.  The Audible ones I finished up were:  The Selection #1, The Elite #2, The One #3 and The Heir #4 -- they're all part of The Selection Series and as you can tell, I was hooked!
