September Loves Giveaway!

Hi friend!  Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be coming to you from NYC!  I flew in to meet my boyfriend, Brian, yesterday and it is awesome to be in the city!  The weather is glorious and we had a fabulous dinner at Il Mulino Prime last night.  Brian said it was one of his favorite restaurants and now I can see why.  And it’s his birthday today!  We’re going to Balthazar to celebrate!

It’s been a fun week on the blog! If you missed it, check out Tuesday Goodies (full of simple things I use all the time!), Packing for NYC, and Easy Lunch Ideas for Kids.


As a THANK YOU for reading and subscribing to my blog, I’m giving away EVERYTHING in my September Loves to one of my subscribers!

If you’re not subscribed, you can sign up here, and I will pick a winner at random and announce at the end of the month.

If you’re new to Loves, it’s where I share things I’m loving each month, with the aim to highlight fabulous things I swear by, some things I want to try, great deals, and under $50 finds!  All perfectly appropriate for the flavor of each month!  I love sourcing goodies and sharing them with you!

Since the popular Marc Jacobs crossbody bag sold out so fast during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I wanted to give away one that’s super similar.  I might even like this one better because it has a front pocket and cute handle strap.  It comes in both tan and black and the stripe crossbody strap is also sporty fun.

Of course, the Radiant Cleansing Balm needs no introduction here – I’ve been talking about it for years and it’s still my favorite daily cleanser that I use morning and night.  If you haven’t tried it, I know you’ll love it!  It truly feels like a mini spa experience each time you use it.

The Corduroy Pumpkins are one of the cutest things in Jordan’s playroom right now!  I’m digging all kinds of pumpkins now and the velvet sure are cute, but there’s something extra special about the corduroy ones!

I’m definitely all about the coffee drinks and have been loving having an extra pick me up in the afternoon.  One of you will win this Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso machine!  It’s a gorgeous design and one touch brewing system.

Hands down, my favorite lipstick and the color that always gets the compliments is Liv it Up by Charlotte Tilbury. It’s a medium pinky shade, but not too sweet or juvenile looking.  It’s just perfect and looks great on everyone.  Plus, it has a moisturizing, creamy consistency.

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I’m glad you’re enjoying NYC! Fall is the best time to go. Your September favorites are perfect! That handbag is gorgeous and I’ve been wanting to get a Nespresso as I only have a Keurig, but my husband is not a coffee drinker and doesn’t understand. 😉 Ha!

  2. Normally skim these posts because I *don’t win* like ever but I am crossing my fingers so hard, have been obsessed with a Nespresso but can’t justify a new coffee maker haha!!

    Have a fantastic rest of your trip!!

  3. I’m so happy to hear you’re having a good time in NYC!!! I can’t wait to “hear” all about it!!! These monthly Loves are awesome!!!! That lipstick is one of my favs & I have been eyeing that Nespresso machine for awhile. Crossing my fingers I finally win this month 😉

  4. I’d love a Nespresso maker . I like Clinique Take the Day Off balm and wonder how it compares to the Colleeenn Rothschild. The latter is so expensive and it would have to be much better to justify the price difference for me.

  5. The bag, the pumpkins, the coffee maker…YES YES YES!!
    I have enjoyed your blog for some time now, and it just gets better. Keep the pics coming, as your style and decor choices are both amazing!

  6. Megan,

    I am truly blessed. Love your blog, thanks for all you do. God bless you.
