With the days gradually becoming shorter and a hint of fall in the air, September is well and truly here. Embracing this season of change, my September Edit encompasses a selection of my personal favorites for this month. Discover my preferred dinner spot in London, along with my favorite exfoliation peel, and why I love to journal.
Vintage Chanel Suit
A vintage Chanel suit is the perfect trans-seasonal piece. Wear the jacket alongside a little black dress, complemented by tights and gloves, to gracefully navigate the crisper fall days. Alternatively, I’d choose to wear the complete suit on sun-kissed warmer days, with hydrated, moisturized bare legs (courtesy of the AN body balm).
My favorite places for shopping vintage Chanel include The RealReal and Vestiaire Collective. Les Merveilles de Babellou in the heart of Paris also stands out as a must-visit destination.
For a business lady on-the-go look, a pair of Chanel sneakers are the perfect complement to your Chanel Suit. I love to add a scrunched sock to complete the look.
Where You’ll Find Me
This month, you’ll likely spot me dining at Annabel's in London. I love the atmosphere and ambiance. Plus, did you know that regulars include Madonna and Mick Jagger? Don’t forget to check out the beautifully adorned pink bathrooms too!
Agent Nateur x Erewhon Salty Chewy Peanut Butter Caramel Smoothie
Last September, we collaborated with Erewhon on a delicious smoothie. By popular demand, we have bottled it and brought it back to the Erewhon shelves! It is a delicious (and healthy) treat, made with holi (mane) collagen, lucama, maple syrup, salted peanut butter, bananas, and almond milk, all bottled with a holi (mane)-inspired label. Stop by any Erewhon location to give it a try!
Autumn Products and Supplements
holi (wash) is powered by lactic acid, a gentle exfoliant that washes away all remnants of dirt and pollution on your skin, and works alongside organic bioactives like Daisy Extract, Cyathea Medullaris Leaf Extract and Algae Extract that work to deliver a balanced, even and luminous complexion.
Packed with outstanding antioxidant and antipollution properties, the bioactive selection works to shield against urban pollution and free radicals as well as rapidly hydrating the skin and facilitating moisture retention. Our new formula foams even better, without stripping the skin.
The Vanessa Hernandez Method Peel is a one-step exfoliating peel that aligns perfectly with the transitional season. It offers a perfect solution to counter the effects of summer sun exposure - for fresher, radiant skin, making it an essential addition to any skincare routine.
My favorite lipstick shade for the upcoming season is Huda Beauty Lipstick in "Wedding Day" and it’s my go-to choice for enhancing any September look.
Thorne Taurine supports restful sleep, something we all need after a hectic summer of traveling. This supplement promotes relaxation and aids in achieving a serene sleep, which I'm definitely going to prioritize in my September routine.
The captivating fragrance of the Celine candle in "Tambour Noir", with its key notes offering smoky bourbon accord, accord of leather, patchouli, coffee absolute and vanilla, sets the stage for cozier evenings as the days gradually grow shorter.
Last but not least, the act of journaling resonates deeply with the back-to-school nature of September. It's a practice that gives me the opportunity to regroup and refocus, regardless of where I’m at or how I’m feeling in life. The act of writing down dreams, aspirations, and goals holds a special significance, as it's a powerful form of manifestation. My preferred manifestation method is the 3 6 9 technique.
The 3 6 9 technique harnesses the power of intention and repetition. Derived from Nikola Tesla's famous quote, "If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6, and 9, then you would have the key to the universe," this technique involves writing down a desire three times in the morning, followed by six times in the afternoon, and finally, nine times in the evening. The gradual increase in repetitions throughout the day amplifies focus and intention, allowing the desired goal or affirmation to take root in the subconscious mind.
Choose a journal which brings you joy and start putting pen to paper - you won’t regret it! Personally, I find joy in using notebooks from hotel gift shops or pens from restaurants where I've woven happy memories.
