What I'm Loving in September 2014

9/17/2014

The return and final season of Sons of Anarchy - I couldn't be more devastated. You're probably thinking: "But Cheryl, it's just a TV show." And if that is what you're thinking, then we can't be friends anymore. I watched the first six seasons in a span of two weeks. A show that I had never paid any attention to has now become my all-time favorite. Sadly, this is the last season for Jax Teller and SAMCRO, which puts a hole in my heart (like the one Jax was born with). But I'm really excited to watch this season in hopes of some sweet, sweet revenge now that Jax is a certified loose cannon, and with good reason--you know what I mean if you're all caught up from season six.

A few pieces from the Tadashi Shoji Spring 2015 collection - This was a collection that I kept seeing on my Instagram feed after the first day of New York Fashion Week. I couldn't take my eyes off the beautiful dresses and gorgeous color palette. The Tadashi Shoji ready-to-wear line has glamour written all over it. Isn't it just fab?

Step up my lip game with plum lipstick - It's not often that you'll catch me wearing any real color on my lips (as I opt for subtle gloss), but I really want to dress my lips in plum tones this fall. Lipstick just doesn't look good on me, but I think darker colors will succeed where others have faltered. This is Silver Screen's "Made It" by Space NK.

Fashion and function with curly protective styles - I like short, long, curly or straight hairstyles. Most days I wear my natural hair out, but occasionally I'll go with a wig. For autumn, I want to go for curly hairstyles that will not only work with the colder seasons, but that also protect my natural hair from over-manipulation.
Go old school with classic Janis Joplin - Recently I spent 15 hours on a plane, so I slept, read, watched movies for free (that I wouldn't pay to watch), and listened to music. I got hooked on the Janis Joplin Greatest Hits album and was so happy to hear her voice. I've always been a Joplin fan, but haven't heard her music in a while. I recommend you add her songs to your Spotify playlist. Start with Ball and Chain. Classic in every sense of the word.

Putting together Instagram flat lays - As you already know, Instagram is my favorite social media channel. I tend to decorate mine with my everyday life, food photos and flat lays. They are just so much fun to put together. If you want to get some flat lay inspiration, check out my posts and follow LuxuryandOpulence too.

  3. Well, you know that I am loving SOA already!! So hooked, I think I went through the series in the same amount of time as you, as soon as you suggested it, I had many late nights up watching it. Sad it will be ending, but I hope it goes out with a great bang. The plum lipsticks are gorgeous, I need a new one of those and Janis is a favourite :))) Hope you are having a great day doll xx

  4. I'm with you on the color palette from Tadashi Shoji. The texture are lovely too!

    I really like those Instagram shots you took. I need to get something to use as a decent background because my wood floors don't always work so well.
