September Favorites 2011

It's favorites time, so let's just jump right into it, shall we? My favorite buy during September was this bag from a company called Raw here in Taiwan. It's a handmade traveling bag, and absolutely perfect. I got the red one, although there are other colors available.

The black shoes are from Toms and I got it back in August while in the States. It is probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever had (not counting my big, fluffy frog slippers). When you buy these, the company actually donates a pair of their shoes to a child in need. Shopping for a good cause? Well, now that's something I can get on board with!

For the past month, I've been wearing these necklaces almost every day. The two golden ones, with the heart and the leaf, I got at Forever21 in the States, but I can't remember where I got the silver one. Love these, they go with everything!

Then there's the Conair Infiniti Curling Wand. Best hair curler I've ever owned. The curls stay in until the next day, and it takes me only about ten minutes to do my hair. In case you didn't know, that's REALLY fast in long-straight-hair-curling-time-world. 

I wore Essie's Peach Dacquiri nail polish during September, and I've loved these face masks my sister sent me from Dubai. I've also been using MAC's Lady Blush blusher to give this pale white girl some much needed color on the cheeks. Some other random September favorites include Project Runway (favorite TV show), Pumped up kicks by Foster the People (favorite song) and, of course, The Boyfriend (all time human favorite).


  1. i love that you live in taiwan. i really good friends of mine taught english there for five years!

    and this is a great collection of items!


  2. Ahh I should have guessed that your bf would be your all-time favorite human! lol I want something like that infinity wand for my hair because it would give me the curls I'm looking for. This is my first time at your blog, but I'll def be back <3


  3. I love my TOMS! Mine are navy.
    P.S. I nominated you for a blog award, check it out!

  4. Nicole, that's great! Maybe I even knew your friend, you never know. There are so many expats in Taiwan, but somehow everyone seems to know everyone.

  5. Carrymel, you should definitely do yourself a favor and try the Conair Infiniti Wand. I promise you won't regret it!

  6. Kate, thanks for the nomination, that's awesome! You are so sweet. I want to get the gray TOMS, but it's a little harder finding them in Taipei. But I also like the red ones... and the white ones... It seems I'll have to order in bulk from the States ;-)

  7. TOMS is very easy to order on the website I always use to buy stuff, there are many many styles though, if you want I can send you the page and you can look at them?

  8. Sonia, can you send me the link to that website? I found a store in Taipei that sell TOMS, but the price is ridiculous here.

  9. I've never used a curling wand...how do those even work? And that bag...adorable!

  10. Hannah, it's so easy! You just hold the wand in one hand and curl a strand of hair around the wand with your other hand and hold it for about 10 seconds. Voila! Perfect curls! :-)

  11. Hmmmm...sounds like I'll have to invest in a good wand!
