September Favorites

September is almost over!  I thought I’d share some of my personal (read: nonteaching) favorites from this month.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know this month I got my first pair of Tieks.
I’m not going to lie.  These things are crazy expensive.  BUT, if you have foot issues and you’re on your feet all day and you don’t want to wear grandma shoes, Tieks are your friend.  And seriously.  That packaging?  Cutest ever.

My first Stitch Fix arrived!  I loved getting a fun box of goodies.
I resisted the pumpkin everything trend until last year when I gave in and tried a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks.  And now I love it very, very much.
However, they are insanely expensive (says the girl who just shared her ridiculously priced shoes) and not diet friendly.  So, I save them for a weekend splurge.  During the week, I add in Torani’s Sugar Free Pumpkin Spice syrup, a dash of pumpkin pie spice, and skim milk to my coffee.  Is it as good as Starbuck’s? No.  But it’s pretty darn good and a heck of a lot easier on my wallet and waistline.

A new favorite that is good for the waistline is this spinach and kale dip from Trader Joe's.  It's only 30 calories for 2 tablespoons.  Yum.

I'm a bit of a worry wart.  That's why I love this message I found on Pinterest.  Right message at the right time.
Type A, control freak type girls need to be reminded of this every once and awhile.  Or everyday.  Whatever.

So, I’m planning on doing this again next month and maybe thinking of making it a linky because I’d like to see what you’re loving.  But is there linky overload?  What do you think?


  1. I have seen so many pictures of those Tieks boxes, but didn't know they were shoes! I thought they were jewelry! PSL's are too good to be good for you!


  2. That dip looks fabulous! I will have to try it!

  3. I *need* a pair of Tieks!! Love the pair you chose!

  6. Those Teiks are so cute, but the prices are SO crazy expensive! I would be up for a monthly linky if you chose to do one!

  7. Love the idea of making it a monthly links. I can't keep up with the weekly ones, but I calendar my monthly linky parties and always make it to those!!!

  8. Fabulous post! Love the shoes, I mean so seriously cute. I am really considering splurging for a pair. They are absolutely precious. Please let us know how they are holding up and if you end up thinking they are worth it. Happy October!
