Must Haves

Sadly I cannot have candles in my apartment at school, but I love having something to make my place smell great, which is where fragrance plugs come in.  Over the weekend I went to Bath & Body Works to smell candles with my Mom (for home) and landed up getting a fragrance plug and the Caramel Pumpkin Swirl scent bulb.  To say I'm in love is an understatement, it's amazing how this little plug fills an entire room with fragrance and makes my whole apartment smell delicious.

This powder is makeup magic!  I've been using it to set concealer under my eyes (which it does really well) for some time now, but recently I've started using it all over my face and am loving it for that too.  I use it on days when I have on a 'full face' of makeup and lightly dust it over my face as my last step.  I do use a heavier hand on my cheeks then the rest of my face to set my blush because it helps to prevent the blush from fading throughout the day.

Ok so I have talked about white Converse sneakers a lot on here so it should be no surprise that it made it onto my must have list.  I got these over the summer and have been wearing them on repeat ever since.  They go with just about anything and add a little bit of a cool factor to your outfit.  They look super cute with jeans and leggings, and I will be wearing them all fall long!

I get sick really easily so I have to be super careful when it comes to germs and always have some hand sanitizer on me.  In my opinion Bath & Body Works makes the best hand sanitizers, they kill germs without drying out your hands and leave a yummy scent behind.  When I picked up my fragrance plug the other day I picked up a few hand sanitizers in the Pumpkin Cupcake because I couldn't resist the lovely scent.

I stole this perfume from my Mom over the summer and have been wearing it almost every day since.  It smells so good and a few spritzes last all day long.  It also doesn't bother my easily irritated allergies, so that's huge for me.

I had been dying to try micellar water for some time and I picked this up right before I left for school. I have worked it into my everyday routine and love the results.  I use it in the morning when I wake up in place of my facial cleanser, I've found that it cleans skin really well and still keeps it moisturized.  I really love this product and can't say enough good things about it, I definitely recommend giving it a try!

This is my go to bag during the school year because it fits a ton, including my iPad and planner, making it perfect to take to class.  I also like that I can use it as my purse when I'm done with classes and don't have to keep switching bags.  This tote is super versatile and a perfect bag for school, work, travel, and more.

8. September Issues 
Who doesn't love the September Issues of fashion magazines?!  It's the new year for fashion meaning these are the biggest and best issues of the year.  I always look forward to picking up a few different September Issues and reading them to find out the latest trends, what's in, and more.

What are your must haves at the moment?
