My Life: September, you're my least favorite.

My name is Audrina && this is my life.

So basically these posts are going to be all about my life and whats going on with me. (For those of you who care to know) These will not be planned out I will just be posting them randomly. Although, if you have any topics you would like me to talk about feel free to comment below. The monthly posts (like this one) will be posted only at the end of every month, reflecting on my month. Other posts will be random through the month.

Senior Year: I guess I can start off by telling you about how my senior year is going. If you read my About Audrina post you probably know that I'm a senior in high school. So far nothing special has happened. I've just been filling out a TON of college applications. That is a major tip right there- apply to many colleges. Most of the ones I'm applying to are in state, but I do have a few out of state.

Winter Formal: Winter Formal is coming up in a few weeks. It is on November 26th which is like eight weeks from now, but I don't care. I'm just like so excited! It's my last winter formal which is sad. I already got my dress its from Betsey Johnson! I love it! I still need to get shoes though. I might go shopping next weekend and get some.

Excitement for This Blog: I'm really happy I started this blog. I've been wanting to make one for a while, but just was to lazy. However, this year I was like I have to make one. I don't even care if people read it or not. Well actually I do want people to read it. But, I'm doing it because I think it's fun.


What I'm Loving: September

September is my least favorite month of the whole year. It seems like everything bad always happens in this month. I'm so happy that today was the last day of this awful overly long month. I'm just so excited that when I wake up tomorrow morning it will be October! (yay! for Halloween and Fall) Although September is a terrible month I do have a few favorites from the month. (most things would be an August favorite but since I didn't have a blog then I'm putting it in this months.)

1. CoverGirl Nature Luxe Foundation- great for those mornings when I'm in a rush
2. MAC Lipstick in Craving- perfect color for fall and it's not too dark
3. Wet n' Wild Gel Eye Liner- love this! NEVER going back to liquid! (I really mean NEVER sorry beibs)
4. Bath and Body Works Shea Cashmere Body Cream- smells amazing!
Nothing to special this month.
5. China Glaze Coconut Kiss- looks gorgeous with my other nail favorite.
6. Sephora by OPI Traffic Stopper Copper- put this on top of my other nail favorite = gorg!
7. Lace Up Booties- Just got this pair at Bergener's it’s my love! But mine is brown.
8. Jeggings- I live in jeggings during the fall. They are comfy and stylish!
Nothing to special this month.
TV, Music && Movies:
9. The Vampire Diaries Season 3- Not a big Twilight/Vampire fan, but LOVE this show!
10. Dancing with the Stars- First time watching this, 2 words- Robert Kardashian...

Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift

While flipping through my Seventeen Magazine October 2011 issue, I came across the ad for Taylor Swift's new fragrance Wonderstruck. Now I have to admit celebrity fragances are getting a bit overrated. I mean I would rather buy a designer perfume than a celebrity perfume anyday. The only celebrity perfumes I have liked before are Fantasy by Britney Spears and With Love by Hilary Duff. So, I didn't really have any high hopes for this perfume. I lifted up the tab that gave a sample of the scent and instantly fell in LOVE with the fragrace. I NEED this perfume in my life. It's the perfect sweet scent perfume for fall and winter! It's not too musky and not to sweet, just the right combination. It's great for anytime day or night. It is decribed as a charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits kissed by a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence. The fragrance hits stores in early October, but you can purchase it online (just like I did!) at ULTA's website.

Woody, Fruity, Floral, Freesia, Apple Blossom and Raspberry


Overall Review: 8 out of 10


Celebrity Style: Nina Dobrev Emmy 2011

All I can say about Nina's look at Emmys is wow! She looked absolutely gorgeous! (as always) I loved the red dress with the effortless hair and dark eye makeup. The choker necklace just tied the whole look together and added a statement to the whole look. She was the best dressed at Emmys 2011 by far in my opinion. What do you think of Nina's look?
Dress is by Donna Karan
