One more day until the weekend! YAAAAS QUEEN. On Monday we shared some of our music faves but let's be real, we've got a ton more things we loved during October! Like I said, monthly favorites were some of my favorite things to share on the blog, so we definitely wanted to continue it! Now, you'll just be getting double!
I know technically I can’t say that this is an October favorites because, well I’ve only had it for about a week, but I had to throw the Master Palette by Mario in here because I already know I love everything about it. The shadows are super pigmented and blend like a dream. Plus the colors in this .. hello could you need anything more? 10/10 would recommend.
If you know anything about me, you know how many Essie nail polishes I own; I’m the girl that brings her own color to the nail salon. I kept seeing Angora Cardi all over Pinterest as one of the most popular colors and thought the name looked familiar. Sure enough, I owned it and don’t think I’ve ever even tried it. I’ve repainted my nails this color at least three times this month. It’s the perfect fall color too, so I don’t see it going anywhere.
The amount of times Porter and I say to each other “I think I’m going to do a face mask tonight” but never actually do one is COMICAL. But when I do get around to using one, it’s almost always Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque. I love how soft and clean my skins feels after using it. Not going to lie, it tingles a little when you put it on but I kinda like it, it’s almost like ‘hey I’m working!’
October rolls around and suddenly all I want is dark lips! I mean can you blame me? It’s about the only way us Floridians can signify that it’s finally fall. I’ve been wearing this combo lately, NYX Plum liner and Wet n Wild Cinnamon Spice, and can’t get enough. I get tons of compliments on it too! It’s bold but wearable …ya know? Also, it just goes to show, you can get the perfect lip color on a drugstore budget!
You’ve seen me in slip ons extremely similar to these in about 50% of my OOTDS. A couple of months ago, it was time I threw them out because I had just worn them down so bad, like I’m talking holes bad. I tried to live without them but that didn’t last long. I wanted a pair that were a little better quality, so I picked these Vans up from DSW. I haven’t stopped wearing them since.
It’s a good day when I buy something and then the next day Jessica Sturdy, who I consider my blogging soulmate, shows it on her snapchat! I picked this cardigan from Old Navy up to pair with one of my swing dresses and since then have paired it with just about everything else in my closet! Plus- it’s got pockets- major points.
I’m sure you’ve seen the new trailer for Gilmore Girls, I feel like the entire world is talking about it. To prep for it, I figured I should finally watch the last season. You see, I started re-watching the whole series about a year ago and for some reason stopped at season 7. I’m back on it and have officially started the countdown to November 25.
I can not stop eating Starburst. I’m not sure why I picked them up, maybe because the grocery store is just aisles of Halloween candy right now, but I’m not complaining. They’re just so dang good.
So I've never had a “true” eyeshadow palette because well, I could never find the perfect one. But the LORAC Mega Pro 3 was GAME CHANGER! I was so excited to finally get my hands on one after Ulta had sold out a few times. Every matte and every shimmer shade is perfect. And there is not one color I wouldn't use. Although it was a bit pricey for me, a palette like this is an investment and I'll be using it practically every day.
Oh yes, I'm into this Pixi setting spray. I have really oily skin so when it comes to a setting spray I need something that's going to get the job done. Three or four sprays after you've done your makeup and you’re set! It also has a really light, refreshing smell that is quite lovely.
Ok, so I mentioned I have oily skin and this definitely includes my eyelids. One of the main reasons I've never really been an eyeshadow person is because after a few hours I'd always get that awkward crease and get annoyed. Clancy introduced me to the NYX eye primer and my life is changed! It works so well!! And now I can enjoy my Lorac palette even more.
You may have already seen these booties from TJMaxx make an appearance on the blog, and I can promise you will see them in future OOTDs because I am obsessed! I mean you can't really go wrong with a brown suede bootie with a tassel. These were a steal for under $30 and I am amazed at how comfy they are.
It was under 70 degrees down here in Florida for about a minute and everyone took advantage of the cooler weather. My favorite thing was probably wearing my cozy, soft sweaters! These are from H&M and Old Navy and I love them. Both have made repeat appearances this past week and will be my go-to's for the season.
We've decided that any candle from Bath & Body Works that has “woods” in the name is a winner. Although Pumpkin Woods doesn't technically have pumpkin in the scent (weird, I know) it's sooooo good! Warm, fresh and a bit spicy. Perfect for fall.
Had to throw this guy into my favorites because it is hands down my favorite Halloween decoration. A flippin' sparkly Day of the Dead sugar skull? Yeah...I'm on board.
So that's it, those are just some things we've been loving this month! What were some of your favorites? We'd love to know!
