September is officially upon us, are you noticing the cooler evenings, turning leaves, shorter days, and how I forget– all the children at school. However, this also means that its time for another inspiration board of the month where I share the trends, experiences, goodies, and blog updates with you. What has inspired you in the month of September?
Food and Fun
♥ TIFF – Rochelle and I being dedicated film lovers have signed up to volunteer at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The movie I will be keeping my eyes out for is “Room” as based on Emma Donoghue’s novel. If you live in and around Toronto, pay a visit to a movie screening and maybe you will have a chance to spot someone famous.
♥ Frittata – Recently I watched a video by Cupcakes and Cashmere where the culinary art of making a frittata was simplified for amateur cooks like myself. Cannot wait to try this out in the kitchen. It is perfect for breakfast but can also do as a work lunch. Do you have any quick and easy breakfast recipes?
Beauty and Fashion
♥ Organic mascara – My makeup routine is very simplistic, comprised of an under eye concealer, brow pencil, mascara, and lip gloss. However, I want to take a step further and experiment with organic makeup products to keep my skin satisfied and proud.
♥ Trench coat – Trench coats are my guilty pleasure although I’ve never actually owed one. This fall my goal is to scavenge the stores for a classic trench coat that will make me feel like I just walked off the set of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Do you know any stores where I can start?
Current Events and Lifestyle
♥ DNA dating – In Elle Canada’s recent issue I was surprised to learn that DNA can be drawn from a couple to determine their compatibility by examining levels of hormones such as dopamine. Here on A Lipstick Trilogy, I will be pursuing more research on this fascinating yet creepy topic in science.
♥ Current events – A new and exciting addition to the blog is the Current Events section where we discuss contemporary issues taking place in Canada and around the world. Although we have some pieces posted already, stay tuned for a new post digging deeper into DNA dating, the solitary confinement issue in Ontario, and much more.
