WHEW. Thanks to a slew of birthday gift cards, my spending was almost back to normal. Or at least closer to where I would want it to be.

You know what my two favorite purchases of September are? (Besides the cat ears headband, obviously!) The jumpsuit and the Heathyoga leggings. Finally, I’ve found pieces I’d like to be buried in! 😂😂 The jumpsuit is a jersey-type material and basically like a more fashionable onesie, while the leggings are soft and thick and have cell phone pockets (!!). I’m seriously considering getting another pair because I want to live in the one pair I have now!

The Treat Lip Balm is pretty great too. Besides smelling amazing, it’s super hydrating—I actually took it to Arizona with me as my overnight lip balm, and it worked really well.

Did you buy anything fun in September?
