First of all, I hope that everyone who lives in Florida or who has loved ones there, is safe from Hurricane Ian. I’ve seen pictures, I’ve read stories, and it looked VERY intense. I know that Florida will need our help in the future, as so much destruction happened. Such a scary situation.
It’s hard for me to believe that 10 years ago I “officially” started Simply Stine by sharing my first blog post. It was nothing groundbreaking, but the fact that I put myself out there was a huge deal to me. 10 YEARS later and here we are. I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve done and still continue to do.
I’ve had so many amazing experiences since starting Simply Stine. I can’t even believe the opportunities I’ve had as a result. I’ve met so many amazing women, businesses, and other creators along the way. Don’t get me wrong, there have been PLENTY of times where I have wanted to just quit and give up, but I don’t. Sometimes the behind the scenes stuff can get really complicated and overwhelming. In the end, it’s the messages that you guys send me that really make the biggest difference. When you share my work. When you shop using my links. When you ask for my advice. When you leave comments. That all matters more than you know.
Yay for 10 years! I’m hoping to treat myself to a glass of champagne and indulge in a piece of chocolate cake this weekend to celebrate.
I shared a very detailed updated fall skincare routine on the blog this week! Did you read it? If not, take a look!
Urban Decay NAKED X ROBIN EISENBERG EYESHADOW PALETTE
The latest from Urban Decay and their Naked Palette collection launched. The Naked X Robin Eisenberg Eyeshadow Palette is bright and colorful. Eisenberg is an LA based Artist, created this palette that features 12 matte and shimmery shadows in both warm and cool tones. It’s so, so different from other Naked palettes.
Rare Beauty Mini Kind Words Matte Duo in Humble
This duo featuring a lip liner and lipstick from Rare Beauty looks like the perfect rose-mauve shade. $20.00!
Holiday Product Launches
Sephora (and many others) have started launching their Holiday releases from brands. I say this every year, but these tend to sell out fast, so if there’s something you’re looking for specifically, check them out early!
Saks Fifth Avenue Sale on Beauty
Right now Saks is having a sale on their beauty products. If there’s something you need or have wanted to treat yourself to, check out the sale and see if that particular product is discounted. There’s a lot on sale!
- All Charlotte Tilbury is discounted
- Tons of high-end hair products are on sale (Olaplex, Virtue, Sachajuan, Phillip B and more)
- The amount of skincare on sale is amazing (Augustinus Badar, Supergoop, La Mer, Dr Barbara Sturm, etc)
- So many skincare tools are included
Youth To The People Kits
My mom messaged me asking about a kit that Youth To The People have released, which got me online to check out what was included in the kit she asked about. This led to finding numerous kits that I think are great buys!
- This Facial Your Way features 3 masks (The full size is one of my favorites for hydration and plumping the skin) These masks will brighten your complexion, unclog your pores, smooth your complexion and hydrate the skin.
- The Youth System Kit features six of their products that will help you (again) brighten your complexion, unclog your pores, smooth your complexion and hydrate your skin. (Cleanser, Vitamin C Serum, moisturizer, facial oil, eye cream and one facial mask)
New Books To Check Out
Did you know that they announced a new Kindle that is being released in November?
The Winners by Fredrik Backman
Verity by Colleen Hoover
Technically not a new book, but it is hardcover and comes with a bonus chapter!
Take It Easy by Gaby Dalkin
One of my favorite IG food accounts that I follow is What’s Gaby Cooking! This cookbook is supposed to be full of no-fuss recipes. I need it asap. I’ve always loved her previous cookbooks.
Keep It In The Family by John Marrs
Ok, this doesn’t release until October 18th, but I felt that it was worthy of pre-ordering if you’re into very spooky vibes. Check TW on this book for sure as it does deal with pregnancy. I follow @EmilyBookedUp and she always has great thriller suggestions. I want to take a chance and read this one, even though it will probably freak me out, ha.
Entertainment and News To Know
- The trailer for the next season of Yellowstone just came out. I.Am.Ready.
- Hocus Pocus 2 launches today! I can’t wait to watch this one!
- I’ve been trying to keep up with the news about the protests in Iran.
- Student Debt Relief just had some changes announced. Totally changed my husbands eligibility

Verity was a great read! Never expected the ending!! Keep In the Family sounds like a good read!
I think I like the new Naked eyeshadow palette. Bold colors for me. Ha
I am def going to try the Youth to People System kit. Hoping I like it.
And the Take it Easy cookbook might be a buy for me too.
I had to get the new book because I need to read that bonus chapter in Verity. That book was A LOT to take in. Gaby is a great follow on IG for meal ideas! I have several of her books. Really good!
I think the John Marr might be a little too scary for me LOL
I haven’t read one of his books before so now I’m terrified, ha!
One of my favorite spaces! Congrats on 10 years!
