Monday Motivation #3

Rise and shine beauties! 
Today was a particularly rough morning because there was an early meeting, but I made the best of it with some beauty essentials and a good read. I've been using these products quite often lately - Tarte's Amazonian Blush Palette, Soap & Glory's Body Butter, Tarte's Amazonian 12-hour foundation to name a few and these truly have been my lifesavers. Just dabbed a gorgeous plum colored blush along with the POREfessional Zero Shine powder to prevent oily skin (which is very common for me during the hot weather!)  and topped it off with an EOS lip balm or a rich Revlon magenta color and I'm good to go! 

Another thing I'm super pumped for is FALL, which I know mention all the time, but literally tomorrow marks the first official day! Although weather in LA won't match up, I'm still going to prep for the cozy season but burning some amazing scents. Based on all the pumpkin candles I already acquired, you can say I'm quite obsessed. It's cool how a deliciously rich smell can instantly transform one's moods, whether you're unwinding from a stressful day or jumpstarting the morning. 

What are some of your favorite scents?
