Each month, the Editor-in-Chief of Journey To Lovely, chooses a small selection of compelling content to highlight.
Hello lovelies, we are finally in September the month of Fashion, la rentrée (back-to-school/work) and the autumn equinox. It’s the perfect season to set the tone for the rest of the year and end it on a productive note!
I’ve rounded up 5 key elements to enjoy during this transitional period and as always, to help you pursue your Journey To Lovely in style.
1. Love Shack Fancy- Vintage Store.
Covered in cascading blooms, this ultra-feminine store is the perfect mix of old English country houses, and the Petit Trianon gardens in the Palace of Versailles. An ethereal dream world of ethereal charm and floral infused inspiration.
It’s the closest thing to a fantasy world Sophia Coppola would create if Marie Antoinette resided at The Beverly Hills Hotel and carefully curated vintage finds.
One of the rooms is displayed as an elegant tea salon reminiscent of the César Suite at The Ritz Paris with a darling floral seating area, a lovingly restored hand-gilded vintage fireplace, antique-finished mirror, and elaborate custom bow moldings grace the pink walls of this special room.
2. Bioré Crystal Quartz and Charcoal Collection
This amazing and innovative skincare line combines the purifying properties of charcoal and the soothing nature of rose quartz.
As someone with oily skin, I especially enjoyed the mattifying effect of the mask and how refreshed my skin felt.
The rose quartz definitely added a touch of positive energy as it is known to help in all things related to love.
Both elements of the mask harmoniously provide an amazing self-care experience to add to your beauty routine. Adding Beauty and love vibes to your day just became a lot easier!
3. The Body book by Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bark
Your body is your past, present and future. It carries the memory of your ancestors, because you are made up of the genes given to you by your parents and their parents before them. And how well you care for it will determine how well you are able to live your life.

4. Decorative autumnal pillow
What a better time than now as we head into autumn to slowly transition our surroundings into a more cozy aesthetic? By adding warm and feminine elements to your decor you are allowing yourself to be creative, all the while enjoying a smooth and aesthetically pleasing transition into the fall equinox. With lovely decorative pillows, you can enjoy both sides of fall decor: the homely comfort of a mellow pillow and the intricate beauty of its design. Seems like a win-win!
5. Fragrant deluxe rose tea by Pagès
I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing ultra-feminine and fragrant blend. Rose being my favorite flower, to have its delicate petals deliciously infused in a precious tea is a most enjoyable experience.
This lovely tea is characterized by its delicacy and its intoxicating rose aroma.
What really stood out to me was the fact the Pagès brand preserved their centuries-old herbalist traditions of tea making from the “herboristeries” in the Auvergne region of France. The intense yet delicate fragrance of the rose mixed with the sweet and aromatic litchi is a testament to Piages desire to seduce and enchant you. I was completely carried away and by this lovely French tea brand that maintains their legacy of quality, medicinal heritage and sustainable values via organic and innovative flavors.
I truly appreciated the floral scent it gives off and the finesse of this creative blend.
Given that it’s my birthday month, I will be enjoying this very elegant tea, especially knowing that the rose flower is known to heighten one’s feminine essence and is a classic symbol of femininity and beauty.
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoyed our September“Lovely Favorites”!
