And just like that, it’s Labor Day Weekend [marking the unofficial end of Summer]. The last few mornings have been feeling a tiny bit fall-like around these parts, which has us doing equal parts jumping for joy for all the fall things, while also crying into our pool floats because LONG LIVE SUMMER. As usual, there was no shortage of packages arriving at Team LIY’s doorsteps this month. Thank you, delivery drivers! Another month calls for another round of “What We Bought & Loved” – sharing our latest and greatest finds! Get your shopping fingers ready; here’s everything we’re buying and loving lately!

These SPANX leggings are truly like none I’ve slid on. They immediately sucked me in, without the suffocating feeling! They stay up – they have a great “non skid” band feature that keep these babies in place! I have to say, these leggings will be ones I’ll be working out in & wearing with my long hoodies and sweaters this fall/winter season!
Claire’s Tarte Finds
If you’re looking for a sign to upgrade your eyeshadow palette from 2015, this is it. But really, those things have an expiration date, friends! I love this palette from Tarte with the prettiest neutral colors, with both matte and shimmer options. It’s a great everyday eyeshadow palette and small enough to fit in your makeup bag!

Katy’s Face Base & Moisturizer
98% tested said it left skin looking rejuvenated OKAY I get what the hype is about with this stuff! I tried the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer and it’s GOOD. It feels amazing on the skin and smells so good I love that it’s doing good for my skin WHILE also being a makeup primer. Shown here wearing this only (with my under $10 mascara)

Our latest LIY Reads book club pick! We loved this story about friendship, love, forgiveness, and summer. It’s a beautifully written, nostalgic summer read that’ll have you laughing out loud on one page, and shedding a tear on another. Highly recommend!
