Hello September!

IMG_3448.JPG
Is it me or has August come and gone too fast?! Yup! September is already here! Happy labour day everyone! I hope you are enjoying this ‘last’ long weekend of the summer. 😳

Thankfully, there are plenty of things to be excited for this month like…the return of SCANDAL!!! Mark your calendars! September 25th will be the premiere of “Shonda Thursday” with 3 of the TV producer’s dramas including the addictive Scandal at 9 p.m. followed by the series premiere of How To Get Away With Murder at 10 p.m. (which I previously spoke about here).

I’m also looking forward to this new comedy featuring Anthony Anderson & Tracee Ellis Ross (love her!) which is about a family man who sets out to gain a sense of cultural identity for his kids that honours the past while embracing the future. “Black*ish” will premiere on Wednesday September 24th on ABC at 9:30 p.m.

In fashion:
I have to say that September is my fave month in fashion! Not only because I love FALL fashion (with the boots, the long sweaters and the colours) but also because I look forward to the huge fashion magazine issues (September issues equals more pages!). The 2014 September issue of Vogue (U.S.) has 856 pages of spectacular fall fashion (yay!) featuring the Instagirls: Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss and more.

In film:
1- No Good Deed featuring Idris Elba & Taraji P. Henson premieres September 12th. This movie is about a devoted wife and mother whose life is threatened when a charming stranger who, after claiming to have car trouble, finds his way into her house. Yikes!

2- The Equalizer featuring Denzel Washington & Chloë Grace Moretz premieres September 26th. This action-thriller is about a former black ops commando who comes out of retirement (after faking his own death) to rescue a young girl and must face Russian gangsters.

Will you be watching? What are some of your September ‘bucket list’ items?

Happy September!
