Aveeno Oat Masks with Pomegranate and Pumpkin

I was recently sent these two Aveeno masks to review. Of course I was happy to have been chosen, because I adore Aveeno products. It doesn't hurt that I enjoy face masks and that the packaging on these gave me straight up fall vibes. Throw oats, pomegranate, and pumpkin into the mix and I was a happy camper when I opened this delivery.

I did end up liking one of these more than the other and I'm surprised by which one it is. Both certainly have their merits, but I do think the results of one outlasted the other. Find out which one below!

Pixi + RachhLoves The Layers Highlighting Palette

This is my second Pixi item ever, actually. My first was the Milky Mist, which I absolutely loved to the last drop and the only reason I haven't picked up another is due to wanting to finish my current face sprays first. I enjoy watching RachhLoves on YouTube and when she started showing this palette that she made in partnership with Pixi, I was sold. Well that, and I just can't say no to a good highlight.

So if you're intrigued about it and want to see my swatches, this is the post for you!

InstaMonth for August 2019

Boy, August sure went by pretty quickly! I'm happy it's September, but my word this year can slow down a bit now. Now that September is here, I get to do something new. I get to cheer my brother on from afar as he takes the football field tomorrow for his first game. I am so proud of him for sacrificing part of his summer for team practices and conditioning.

I was on the field in the marching band (and I am quite familiar with the sacrificing of the summer and many many hours) and now he'll be on the field in a football uniform! His team is a step below junior varsity, as he'll only be 14 this year. Just saying that makes me feel incredibly ancient! I only wish I could get down for a game, but I am looking forward to going down to South Carolina at Christmas. For now, he has one of his biggest and proudest cheerleaders in Canada!

Besides that, we're a step closer to the official start of autumn and I am impatiently waiting for it to be more acceptable for me to throw on sweaters and boots and wanting pumpkin everything. I mean, I'm already pretty much there...it's just not as acceptable to the general public. Haha! Look, fall is my favorite season so I just want to elongate it. Can't help it! I'm sure all of you summer lovers are doing the same by trying to hold onto your sandals and shorts as long as possible!

So here we are with my monthly round-up from Instagram. These are a few pictures from my account during August. As always, I love following you all back and getting to know you on there. At a time when the algorithm isn't at its best, I'm sure we all feel like we could use a little more support on there.

Happy 12th Birthday, Fashionable Heart!

Here we are again, folks! Let's see if I can put together a decent post. I'm sure I've put my thoughts more eloquently in all the previous posts where I honor my blog's date of existence. I won't make this a novel as I probably have in the past, because those thoughts and words very much still apply.

If I recall correctly (it was a long time ago, afterall), I started the blog just a few days prior but didn't post until September 7th. It was originally known as Ordinary Superstar, a song that was featured on The Hills at the time. I decided to get my very own .com and so Fashionable Heart was born. The real reason behind me starting the blog was that my grandmother passed away that year (2007) and I was in a dark place. I needed something to put my focus on and I knew I loved writing and photography. I wasn't new to blogging, but this one felt different from the start. This blog came to be exactly two months after my grandma died.

I loved it so much and just kept at it. I blinked and somehow I am sitting here celebrating twelve years. It is insane how quickly time passes. I had no idea that day in September would bring me to this point. I've met some lovely people, worked with some great brands, and have had incredible experiences. Fashionable Heart means so much to me and has made such a difference in my life that it boggles my brain a bit to sit back and think about it.

Thank you to everyone who has deemed this blog worthy of a follow or any of my posts worthy of a read,share, or save. Thank you to the brands and companies that have worked with me. I appreciate all of you with every fiber of my being.

12 years. Wow. What a 12 years it has been! Let's keep going, shall we? :)

Blog of the Month for September 2019 - Tea & Nail Polish

In August, Amanda from Amanda Glow Getter was my featured blogger (who just got engaged, if you want to throw a congratulations her way!). You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I've chosen Eithne from Tea & Nail Polish. I featured her many moons ago and she's still blogging and going strong! Her blog is exactly what the name implies - tea and nail polish! Eithne does some great swatches and reviews of polish brands, including indie labels. There's a few makeup posts thrown in for good measure, but you're for sure walking away with a wishlist of polishes and teas to try. Like look at this year's version of Monster Mash in her recent post about DAVIDsTEA's Halloween collection! Hope you visit Eithne's blog and let her know I sent you, if you'd like!
