October Favorites

I would have loved to have created a proper YouTube video to chat about my favorites from last month, however, life is happening + is not allowing me the time to sit down, film + edit. So, I have decided to type up a little blog post with photos + text this month. I hope you’ll forgive me! My schedule during the week makes it near impossible to film when I get home + the last couple weekends were filled with family. Anyways, please read on if you’d like to know what I was reaching for most during October!


Lavender Vanilla Aromatherapy Range from Bath + Body Works

I think it’s pretty clear that I have a deep affection for this range of Aromatherapy products from Bath + Body works. When I shower at night I like to use the shower oil, when I take bubble baths I like to use the Luxury Bubble bath, before bed I slather the cream all over my limbs + I spritz my pillow with the pillow mist. The scent is incredible, soothing and relaxing and it is an absolute staple in my nightly routine!


Chloe Perfume

I have been really digging this fragrance, a teensy tiny bottle of Chloe that I got with my points at Sephora. The scent is light + lovely. I am horrible at describing scents so I will let Sephora do the honors: “Warm, seductive, and totally addictive, a classic rose is translated into a breath of modern femininity”. I’d say that’s accurate! The full size bottle will be on my Christmas Wish list, for sure.


Be a Bombshell Cosmetics – Smooth Criminal Powder

This powder was gifted to me from my sister who received it in her Ipsy bag. It’s a silky smooth translucent loose setting powder. It is a powder for people who don’t like looking like they have powder on, so I love it. I use my giant E.L.F. brush to press this onto my face after applying all my creams.


Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation – 200 Sand Beige

This foundation is not for the faint of heart – it has a thick consistency + is definitely full coverage. I can flip the open container over completely and not worry in the slightest that it will run. That being said, it makes my skin look amazing! It makes my skin appear smooth, even + does not look like I am wearing foundation. Perfect for dry skin, not sure if oily skinned gals would like this. The staying power is impressive as this foundation lasts all day and looks good after hours of wear. The best part is that it is drugstore + doesn’t cost an arm and a leg!


I could go on for days about my love for this book. Refreshingly honest, bold, hilarious, inspiring. I laughed out loud at least a dozen times. Lena Dunham is intelligent, articulate + witty. An absolute must read for young women.

Hope you all enjoyed, leave a comment + let me know what you’ve been loving lately!
