Ok This September!   I'm just as obsessed  with the fall TV schedule as ever. I still watch too much TV. Some of the shows I'm watching or looking forward to watching: Gray Anatomy, Parenthood, Hostages, Sister Wives, Revenge, Homeland, The Little Couple, Person Of Interest,nashville,Scandal,Shark Tank,Amazing Race,Ray Donavan,Newsroom,Life Below Zero going to miss Breaking Bad..the final episode is on tonight. My DVR is on overdrive with all of this activity. Big Brother 15 came to an end with Andy winning. It was a very mean spirited year on BB and can only hope next summer is bettter. With that being said I didn't  miss an episode and went as far as to watch the after dark episodes and many youtube/twitter and facebook posts..I need an intervention!

My sister turned 50 this year!

We enjoyed some peace with nature. Getting ready for a crazy busy October.

September Ipsy Bag

I always love going to the mailbox and finding the pink bubble envelope! This months was no exception, I liked most of the products. 

Cailyn Big Apple tinted lip balm. I'm not a huge fan of red lipstick on myself but I did love this color and will probably wear it from time to time. The applicator was unique and I love the little brush to put on the lip balm
I'm not a big fan of purple but I've seen other people get a dark grey almost black color instead this month so I'm happy that I got the purple. It doesn't have the glitter that the grey had in it and it's very soft. Not sure I'll wear it much. Nice size container.
The mascara was a bit sticky but I did like the curved brush. It is a sample size of :It's so Big" Volumizing mascara. I don't wear a lot of mascara because I think I'm allergic or something, my eyes always water and burn when I do. We shall see how this one works out.   The Jesses Girl liquid eyeliner was  nice but I don't have much experience putting it on and not a very steady hand so it went all over my eye lips..did not wipe off easily. Will take some practice.
The bag itself is cute like all Ipsy bags. I think I have about 20 or so..not sure what to do with them but they are cute.

I didn't try the nude lipstick in today's bag It was J-Cats beauty.Fantabulous lipstick. My lips are small enough without a nude color lipstick on them. not a fan.
