I’m not trying to brag too much of here, but I’m pretty sure I have one of the coolest and most enviable jobs ever. Reason for that is? I’m scouring the internet the best shopping deals and coolest trends every day and try out so many great new clothes, beauty products, and housewares. I’ve been a shopping author and editor for several years and have developed a knack for knowing which products are worth every penny and which are better off staying in the virtual shopping cart.
This month is all about stepping into fall in comfort. Stores like Target begin rolling out their fall home lines and websites are seeing increased search interest moisturizing and clarifying products (Makes sense, since the temperatures will unfortunately drop and the air is about to dry out). Amazon’s Movers & Shakers page – a section showing which items are becoming increasingly popular – is filled to the brim with soothing lotions and oils. Google is inundated with Inquiries about “autumn fashion” and People on Pinterest begin to look Pumpkin recipes and candles again.
My shopping carts are a perfect match for these fall trends. I’m looking for nourishing face masks, elegant platform loafers and cozy throw blankets to get my cold weather months off right. Check out the eight essentials I’ll be buying this September:

Neutrogena anti-residue clarifying shampoo
I don’t know what spending so much time inside is all about, but my scalp has been a mess since the pandemic started. I have experienced more dandruff and dryness in the past two years than in my entire life. My only salvation? This simple clarifying shampoo. It removes gross product buildup from dry shampoos and conditioners without stripping my hair of its natural oils. For best results, I’ll trade this product for my typical one purple shampoo once or twice a week.
Sam Edelman Laur’s platform loafers
I am convinced that you can wear good loafers all year round. I love the androgynous vibe of the shoes. They are punk and sexy at the same time. Unfortunately, most quality pairs cost a few hundred dollars. That’s why when I found this Sam EdelmansI screeched out loud with joy. the Olivia Rodrigo-esque Shoes platforms are available in black, light brown or green and combine them with practically every dress or pants that you have in your wardrobe.
Chenille blanket with cables
There is no problem curling up in one cozy blanket can not solve. That’s why I give myself a new one at the beginning of each fall season. I love the look of anything cable knit. The sophisticated design makes tops and accessories like this blanket, that’s only $ 25, look so much more expensive than they are.
Nest Pumpkin Chai Candle
It’s time society passed the point of calling anything with a pumpkin scent or taste basic. Let’s all just agree that pumpkin is all delicious and should be celebrated and not ridiculed. This September, I’m going to go all out for candles. Nests Pumpkin Chai Candle is all I want to cover my space. The spice scent is decadent without being intrusive. Plus, the candle itself is a warm orange. You can’t find a better fall candle than this one.
Mr. Coffee Cup Warmer
I’m pretty sure about it this clever coffee invention was made for me. It ensures that slow drinkers (moi) never have to deal with lukewarm drinks again. To use it all you have to do is toggle the switch and the bottom will warm the bottom of your mug and keep the liquids inside nice and hot. I will always keep this accessory on my WFH desk.
Free People Picnic Sweater Rompers
This fall, I don’t want to wear anything that requires more than a little effort. Jeans? Absolutely not. A shirt with buttons? Are you serious. Paragraphs? Please don’t make me laugh. But this sweater romper? Sign me up. It’s like wearing a stylish and socially responsible set of onesie pajamas. I plan to wear it at home for work and leisure, then dress it up in tights and combat boots when I go out. It’s such a simple look, but these are the best to style over and over again.
PÜR 4-in-1 Sculpting Concealer
There are very few people I trust with makeup counseling. One of them is Rachel Nussbaum, beauty writer for InStyle. She knows all about the ingredients that popular foundations, hairsprays, and so on contain. Your extensive knowledge is associated with a lot of heartbreak. She often tells me (and her readers) about the harmful irritants that too often are found in branded products. So if there’s a brand that approves of it, I’ll take note of it. Rachel told me that Pur is on her list of A-okay concealers, so I’ll hop on it 4-in-1 color corrector faster than a child on a trampoline. It’s available in 16 shades, costs under $ 25, and is phthalate, aluminum, and talc free.
Summer Friday jet lag mask
I am a writer living in New York. Translation: I don’t have an income that gives me the means to spend a lot of money on skin care (and I don’t want to). Spending almost $ 50 on a face mask would hurt me physically and emotionally if I didn’t already know and love it so much. i used Jet lag mask on summer Friday for years. It saved my skin when I took Accutane and it continues to be my secret to non-greasy moisture. I would say I have to stock up on it every five months or so, and this September is one of them. I’ll use it to prevent cracked winter skin and before dates or brunches to give myself a Hailey Bieber-esque glow.
