The Weekend Post | 09.26.15

theweekendpost092615-3Happy Saturday! We officially made it to fall, which I’m super happy about, and we’re almost done with September (which I’m not sure how I feel about). I finished my third week of the semester, and things are still going really well, though I learned the hard way this week that when I don’t budget my time effectively, I have to scramble to get my readings and blog posts done. Next week will be better. I don’t want to experience unnecessary stress this semester.


theweekendpost092615Besides the few nights when I stayed up a little later than I should to finish a blog post or read about Old English verbs, It’s been a great week. I went mini golfing with my mom and sisters for our monthly girls night out, and it was a blast. It’s become our September tradition to go, and I hope we do it next year too. I definitely did not win (unless you count having the most points), but had the best time. I love that we all live in the same city and like each other too!

And now time for my favourite links:

This post makes me wish that a Burberry trench didn’t cost more than 3 times our rent.

You just might love Joseph Gordon-Levitt more after watching this interview (I know, I didn’t think it was possible, either).

Seeing more holiday beauty collections, like these from Sephora, makes me so excited for the months ahead.

This post and this post which remind me that I need to bake more this fall.

This undone, yet elegant side bun inspired by NYFW.

What are you up to this weekend? It’s looking like we’re going to have some cooler temperatures in the coming days, which means I might have to get my first Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Starbucks, and wear more scarves — I won’t complain!

    The salted caramel apple looks fantastic!! MAN. And a beautiful coat … though, it’s approximately 6 times my rent. CRAZY!

    I also had a question. I’ve only begun to explore make up (partly because you make me feel confident about it. Tutorials would be amazing!) and as a 25 year old with limited experience I’ve been trying drug store brand products mostly. While I’ve tried a few different ones I love, I’ve had the worst time finding something to cover my undereye area. I’ve inherited really dark, purpley-blue undereye circles. Oh, and did I mention that I’m super lily white and ridiculous pale, while also trending toward being cooler? Nothing I’ve bought in the drug store has covered them even remotely. I’m willing to spend a fair bit if you think something could. Any ideas? Sorry to bother – I really don’t have anyone else to ask 🙁

    • Hi Kay!

      Try maybelline’s master glaze in coral reef. Technically it is a blush, however the trick with makeup is to use the opposite color to cancel out the dark circles, which in this case is purple/blue. You blend it in and you’ll notice it will even out your skin tone!

    • I definitely want to do some tutorials, but it might be a while before I do because I don’t have the best set up for it yet, but I promise I am working on it!
      Currently I use a pinky concealer under my regular one to brighten my under eyes (I have visible blue-y veins). That helps to correct the colour before concealing. For a heavy duty corrector I would suggest the Bobbi Brown corrector, which comes in a variety of shades so you cam find your perfect match. And if you’re looking for a regular concealer with high coverage, I’d suggest the Clarins Instant Light concealer. I just started using it this last week and it is amazing!
      I hope you find something that works!

  • I cant remember the last time I went minigolfing.
    But I remember it was fun then.

  • Holiday beauty collections always excite me too!
