Hey guys! So I’ve done two or three posts like this- technically a monthly favorites where I tell you all what I’ve been loving this month. I personally love doing these, because I like seeing what other people are into, and also this is great if you’re looking for any recommendations. I received a very positive response, so I decided to go ahead and do an October Favorites.
Yes, it’s seriously November. I was like what? Honestly, that went by so incredibly fast! But October also meant officially fall, which in my language, equals : fall products and clothing! So I got to try out a lot of fall products and have a ton of things I’ve been loving!
I don’t know if you guys have been introduced to LUSH yet, but I’ve recently become more and more obsessed with this store! It’s technically a cosmetics store with fresh products that are not tested on animals. They have amazing products, ranging from shampoos and face masks to bath bombs! I’ve always been a fan of their lip scrubs, and when they got the new scents, I had to grab Santa’s Lip Scrub. It’s an actual lip scrub that you apply, and it gets rid of any dead skin and makes your lips ultra-soft and hydrated! I definitely recommend that you guys check it out.
I’ve been recently into wearing eyeliner a lot, and the L’orêal Super Slim eyeliner is perfect. It has a felt tip, which is great for doing a cat-eye or for clumsy eyeliner appliers *raises hand*. This also doesn’t mess up during the day but removes pretty easily with a good makeup remover. Also, the price is totally worth the product.
Benefit’s new boxed blushes have been getting a lot of hype, and I just had to check them out! I fell in love with their Dallas blush– it may sound skeptical, but it’s a super pretty color that shows up as a darker pink. I have tanned skin, so this blush seriously worked. It didn’t give me that bright, neon pink look I always get, but a soft, more glow-y look. The quality is amazing and totally worth it, and I suggest you guys check out all the boxed blushes!
Since the weather’s been turning a little cooler recently, I’ve been wearing a lot of slouchy cardigans that come in super pretty colors- red and brown. Comfort chic!
I absolutely love pairing crew or knee-highs with a pair of boots. It looks so cute and fall-like– I couldn’t resist grabbing a few from, yes, Urban Outfitters. I actually own the flowered crews as well as the knee-highs! I grabbed them on sale, and the quality is amazing. They are ultra soft and pretty!
I’ve been into a lot of music lately, so I had to have a seperate category!
First off, let me just say that Counting Stars by One Republic has just been… oh my goodness! No words for how amazing that song is!
I know I’m so late, but I’ve also been into Imagine Dragons and especially one of their hits, Demons! Deep:)
The 1975 have also been a favorite band of mine, and I can’t choose just one song!
And, finally, Jay-Z’s new album, Holy Grail! Been listening to that a lot!
And now introducing a new part to the favorites! I found the ‘favorite questions’ online and decided to do them for fun!
Favorite iPhone App? Snapchat and Instagram!
Favorite book series? To many to count! I just read Allegiant (NO. WORDS.), House of Hades, and the Selection. Too many great books! Oh yeah, and of course, the Fault in Our Stars.
Favorite candle? Twisted Peppermint!
Favorite beverage? Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate.
So that’s it for my monthly favorites! Comment below telling me what you think– up next is a fall hall, but it might take a few days to create! Pinterest account update: I’m going to be creating a separate account for this website to make everything easier, launch date TBA. Also, November means NANOWRIMO month. As a proud participant for now four years, I’m happy to be doing it again! for those of you who don’t know NANOWRIMO, it’s a super cool organization for young writers encouraging us to write a whole novel in one month! Check it out!
