Best Purchases of the Month: September

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

Working from home and quarantining on and off for the past year has not curbed my shopping habits. I continued to buy a variety of clothes, accessories, home goods, and more throughout that time, and to this day.

Since I don't plan to change my shopping habits, I wanted to take some time to highlight some of my favorite purchases from the month.

Sling Pack from Target

This sling bag is super cute. I like to downsize my purses to smaller ones during the spring and summer. I saw this bag and fell in love with it. Mine is black but there was also a brown one that I had my eye on.

The strap is adjustable, which is always a plus for me. I like to style the bag as a crossbody so the adjustable strap is perfect for that. Again, I love the bag, it's lightweight and comfy to carry. There's a pocket on the outside of the purse as well as one on the interior. Target has a variety of other small backpacks and purses. I plan to go back for one (or two) of them.

Since we're in fall now, I'll be looking for a larger bag soon.

Plush Bed Rest Pillow from Target

I've had this on my "to-buy" list for a while. I remember my grandma had one when I was younger and remember thinking it was such a cool invention. I have an at-home office-ish that I use to work from home, and after hours of sitting on my behind and suffering from poor posture, I want to continue to do personal work comfortably.

Sometimes I like to sit in my bed to read, write, and use my laptop so this pillow helps with that a ton. The pillow is soft and plushy, with arm rests. The pillow provides back support and there's a handle at the top of the pillow that makes it easy to move from room to room.

Lettuce Hem Flare Leg Pants from Shein

I love these pants. They're equally cute and comfortable. Unfortunately, they are a bit sheer and see through but they pants were really inexpensive so you get what you pay for. I'm happy with the quality overall.

These pants are soft, silky-feeling, and slightly ribbed. Thankfully these are not super long on me. I'm 5'3", so sometimes pants that flare have extra length that makes them too long and they drag on the floor, which I hate. Fortunately for me, these pants fit perfectly all around. I fully plan to buy more flare pants from Shein.

Women's dluxe by dearfoams Kimberly Genuine Shearling Scuff Slippers from Target

I've always been a fan of slippers/house shoes. I hate the feel of my bare feet on hardwood and even carpet sometimes so I'm always wearing slippers. I wear them daily, even outside, and typically purchase two at a time. Since I wear them daily, I want a backup for when they wear out.

I recently purchased a new pair and they're so comfortable. I only bought one pair this time but I'm already eyeing a pair I want next. I like them because they have a similar look to my old ones, but overall the comfort is really the selling point. I like slippers with cushion and/or memory foam.

The shearling is thick and plush. The suede is soft and the bottom firm for those who need more stable support. They're warm and come in a variety of colors. It's a 10/10 for me.

Dual Tip Brush Pens from Amazon

I love writing and have hella journals that have not been written in so I hope to start breaking them out now that I have new writing utensils. The pens are double sided, one side has a fine tip and the other side has a flexible brush tip. My favorite thing about these pens is the assortment of colors.

These pens aren't only good for taking notes, but for coloring as well. I own an adult coloring book and encourage you to invest in one. They're a great tool to help you de-stress and studies have shown that coloring is good for your mental health. Amazon says these pens "meet all you need for adult coloring books, bullet journals, scrapbooks, planner, manga, calligraphy, coloring, writing, note-taking, sketching, drawing, etc."

Be on the lookout for next month's best purchases.

If there are any clothes, accessories, home goods, etc. that you love and/or swear by, please feel free to share them with me in the comments.
