Wanna know one reason I love Fall so much? Pumpkin. Seriously, if I see anything with pumpkin in it, I must eat it. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin spice latte.... I love it all. It's just one of those quintessential Fall things that I will never get enough of. Of course, I love food in general, no matter what it is. Why else would I get so excited about food subscription boxes like Degustabox?!

I started looking at the bookcase in my son's room the other day and decided to start clearing out books that he has outgrown. That didn't go well because it seems my child has inherited my book hoarding tendencies. Neither of us like yo get rid of or put away books even if we don't read them anymore. I suppose it's not the worst habit in the world but when you add to the pile each month thanks to book subscriptions like And The Story Begins, it gets problematic trying to find a place to put them all!

For some unknown reason, I have been obsessed with true crime shows lately. Not the morbid stuff though. I love a good survival story, ya know? Beating all the odds and somehow having the endurance to live though whatever awful thing happened. It's inspiring and makes you see just how precious every moment is. I know this has nothing to do with this month's Your Bijoux Box review, but I'm so obsessed with these shows that I'm currently watching one while I type this ! Now, enough of that.... Let's get into this review!

I absolutely hated cooking when I was younger. My mom always tried to teach me but this was the early 2000's and I liked to argue that just because I was a girl didn't mean I had to know how to cook. I regretted that once I started dating my husband. Those early days... Oh how his taste buds suffered. Thankfully I have become a much better cook and I love to experiment with new ingredients and out of the box recipes. I found both those things in one new subscription box called This Table.

We all know that the amount of beauty products in my house is at this point, pretty ridiculous. If 12 year old me possessed this much makeup, I would have been astounded. Honestly, up until about 6 years ago, you could fit all my makeup in the same 3 tier Caboodle case I've had since Jr. High. It wasn't until I started Cosmetology school that my obsession began. These days, I collect all of these magnificent products from equally magnificent subscriptions like Play! By Sephora.

Remember when you were a kid and would get so excited about the school book fair? I loved it then and whenever it comes back around to my son's school I get that same feeling of excitement. Books will always be my biggest obsession and I'm so happy that my child shares that love. Reading is an amazing, wonderful way to pass the time and I'm about to immerse myself in a couple of new stories courtesy of the September Bookcase.Club box!

Well, my AC crisis has been fixed for now. Thank god for the glorious invention of window units and for my parents who happened to have an extra one lying around. One of these days, my husband will learn not to tinker on things he doesn't know anything about. Why must all men think they are born with the knowledge to fix everything? But let's talk about something much more interesting now, shall we? How about the September Wantable Accessories box!

For the last week, the air and temperature have been perfect. No oppressive humidity making my clothes stick to my body, a light breeze that teases of Fall... Just perfect.... Then my AC went out and it is suddenly miserable again outside. Mother Nature is laughing at me now, I know it. But heat or no, life goes on and a new day brings a new review - the August Lip Monthly bag!

It never fails.... We've only just begun the school year and already I have a sick child. There is no rest for a Momma when her baby (yes, he's 9 but he will be my baby forever, ok?). My week has pretty much been utterly devoted to tending to him. Luckily, he is finally on the mend so I have time to catch up and share the August My Texas Market box with my dolls!

I think I have organized my bookshelves about 20 times this week. I don't know why though. I just feel a compulsive need to rearrange things sometimes. I'm one of those people that loves to look at my books almost as much as I love reading them. And now, thanks to my August LitJoy Crate I have another pretty book to ogle.
