What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
September is wrapping up, which means the most magical three months of the whole year are right around the corner. If you needed something to be excited about today, there you go. You’re welcome!

If you need even more things to be excited about, here are my favorite things I discovered this month:
I mean, wow. WOW. This is delicious. It’s a treat in every sense of the word (it probably has more sugar than you should consume all day, but that’s neither here nor there). Chai lattes and I really had a moment this year, so when I found out there was a pumpkin version, it was happily ever after. (PS – linking that for the picture – it’s much cheaper at the grocery store).
If you want to get in on the pumpkin spice chai party but want to be healthier about it, I also fell in love with this tea this year. Still lots of fall flavors, but none of the sugar, and sometimes you just gotta choose that, ya know?
This stuff is MAGIC. I can only speak for the blonde one, but that one brightened things up, removed any brassiness, and basically made it look like I had just got my hair done. Just from taking a shower! It comes in all hair colors, and if you’re feeling blah about your hair, or you wanna touch it up between salon visits, $14 at Target and a shower later will have you feeling good as new.
You have no doubt seen this magic all over instagram. It is my duty to report to you – it is indeed magic. I desperately need to find a DIY version of this. TIP: If you don’t like overly sweet drinks, ask for half the amount of the cream they normally put it.
This stuff SAVED MY FACE this month. I had a stressful month, and my skin took the brunt of it. Do you remember the clean and clear gel in the purple bottle everyone used in middle school? Where you piled gobs of basically glue on your zits? It’s like that stuff cleaned up its act, went to college, earned its degree, and it back to work for you. And IT WORKS.
Again, linking for the picture. It’s way cheaper in stores. If you follow me on instagram, you’ve no doubt seen me rave about this stuff this month. It’s delicious! I love the way it makes my house smell. If you want a fall flavored coffee that’s not pumpkin, this is the best. I’m obsessed. I’m actually drinking it right now!
Two pumpkin flavored things, two coffee related things – sounds about right. What did you discover in September?!
