Another week has flown completely by and we are literally about to embark on Mid-September…

Estee Lauder- beauty- Makeup- Double Wear

As you all know today is the anniversary of one of the most horrible days that the United States has ever encounter. September 11, 2001, was a day that forever changed American. September 11 marked the day that,we came together on a united front as this great country began healed and remember those that either lost their lives and/or gave their lives to help others on that day and the days following after. So before we jump into this kick off of link love, lets take a minute to remember those who were fallen, but will NEVER be forgotten. 

September 11- Gone but not forgottenPEAKS + PITS OF THE WEEK | SEPT 11, 2015

PEAK: There are some awesome changes coming to MLL and I am SOOOOOOOO excited. I have to wait a bit on to tell you all the details in depth- but lets just say THEY ARE GOOD changes. AND major news- Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks officially. Maybe it’s the basic bitch in me, but I do LOVE the PSL that Starbucks has to offer. Although my friend Karly actually made an AMAZING Pumpkin Spice Milkshake- I can’t wait for her to post the recipe.

PIT: The weather here in So Cal has been totally wacky. I mean like hurricane style weather- hot heat, hot rain and weird crazy winds. My allergies are about to kick into high gear- let the sniffles begin. I could really used a bit of 75-degree weather here soon, what about you?
