September has come and gone so fast that I almost forgot to do my September Must Haves. It features a great mix of stationery items, electronics and accessories. No beauty products this month because September was unusually hot for any makeup and I have been using the same items for my hair. So let's get to it.
From the time September hit I knew it was time to change up my planner. I LOVE my Bare Naked pocket TN from Mystic Little Gifts
but it didn't scream fall to me. I knew right away to reach for my Macchiato pocket TN from Mystylic Little Gifts
. Not only is it rich and screams fall.I love it even more since Mystic LIttle Gifts no longer carries this leather. So I will treasure it. I even changed my entire setup to compliment it. Which is my next favorite.
These collages have been the rage all summer long and now into fall. They remind me of the trend boards we had to do it collage which showed the inspiration for the collections we used to design and create. So right away I knew I needed one when I was going to switch to this planner for fall. I scoured Pinterest and pulled my favorite fall images and made a collage using Photoshop. I think I saved the process in my highlights on Instagram. It might be under the highlight that says "Crafty". And if you've been living under a rock then you might not have seen my Ruska Doll
. Which is available on my website
. She just screams fall and I'm obsessed with her. The two just go together like peanut butter and jelly.
This zipper pouch that I got from Target I believe last fall has truly come in handy since I've been taking both my planner with me wherever I go. It fits my pocket TNs perfectly and protects them from everything else in my bag. God forbid anything bust in my bag and got on my TN I would be heart broken. Especially since it houses EVERYTHING concerning my business. It's a bonus too that it only cost $1. I really need to check again and see if they have any new styles so I can get another one for my personal rings planner.
My younger sister is a MAC girl and I always get random bits and bobs from her. She has so many makeup bags that she literally gives them away to me and my older sister and her best friends. This one is one of her recent here you go. I love it because the material is very durable. It's that scuba material that has been all the craze recently in the fashion industry. The makeup bag is really roomie. It houses all my lip essentials, tissue, mirror, blotting sheets, feminine items with room to still spare. I doubt it even available anymore but if you do see it.Get it. You'll be thanking me later.
I bought this portable charger from Acellories at the very beginning of August for my vacation to Sweden later that month. This baby was a life saver during that trip and all through September. September was a super busy month for me and my family since it was Labor Day season aka West Indian parade time. I rarely worked from home since I had to help at the family business. It's all hands on deck at that time. We're always super busy. This charger held me down since I couldn't be home in front of my computer. My phone became my computer and I did EVERYTHING on it. It charges really fast and charged my phone battery to a full battery in 30 to 45 minutes if I wasn't using it. I found it on Amazon
but I bought it from a local homes store here in Brooklyn and it was only $10 after tax. The best investment ever.
I've been loving stickers from MadeWithSouthernLuv
. Not only these doodle stickers but her kits too. I would of shown those too but I had to go through my album to get them and I didn't want to dig. As you can see one sheet is almost done while the other is half done. Her stickers are not only super cute but functional and her designs are not like everyone else's. I like to be different and you can do that if everyone has the same exact thing. An added plus is her stickers are matte. I can't stand glossy stickers.Nobody got time to be searching for the perfect pen that isn't going to smear.
I adore TheCraftyStuden
t stickers but what I've been really loving is her read script stickers. I use them every week in my weekly spread to track the book(s) I finish that week. Don't sleep on her. Number one they're super affordable,two their matte,three do you see how many stickers you get to one sheet and four she always have some type of sale going on. I really need to reup on some of her stickers that I finished.
And lastly is this Madeline card case
in indigo from Mystic Little Gifts
. I've been carrying this baby since I got it in my order from her last Black Friday Sale. I was carrying all my essentials before in my card case available on my website.
What I love about this one is it not only features one slot to hold your cards but two. I use the front one to hold my business cards and the one behind that to hold my ID, bank card,and store reward cards. It's super light weight and compact. If I don't want to carry any bag I just grab this and go. I highly suggest you get one.
So this rounds off my favorites for this month.What have you been loving?
