All my favorite things I fell in love with during the month of October!
Today I wanted to talk about all my favorite things from fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I have everything I fell in love with and back in love with during the month of October. I know I love when my friends share their favorite things so I wanted to do the same for you. Make sure to tell me your favorite things from this post and in general so I have some fun things to test out for next month.
These zyia joggers are a gorgeous shade of maroon. They’re super comfortable and stretchy. They also have a drawstring to tighten as you need. I paired mine with a t-shirt and a jacket but you can dress them up or dress them down as you please. Honestly, I wear mine all the time around the house, but these are cute enough to go out and run errands in too.
Mustard Maxi Dress
This is my favorite dress for fall! I’m obsessed with this dress and the brown mustard color right now. At the neckline, there is a snap so if you’re nursing this is a huge benefit or if you have a hard time putting on dresses like I do sometimes, it’s much needed! I love all the details on the sleeves/hem and I am obsessed with the maxi length. It’s comfy, super lightweight and perfect for fall. I would style this with a cardigan if it gets really cold and with some boots or heels.
Blush Dot Sweatshirt
If you’ve seen my Instagram stories, you’ll know I’ve been living in this sweatshirt! I’m pretty much in love with anything blush, even my wedding dress was blush! It also has polka dots which I love. It’s unbelievably comfortable! Some sweatshirts can take a while to become soft but this one isn’t like that. I feel like this brings my sweatshirt game to another level so I can wear this out and about without looking grungy if you know what I mean. This is definitely one of my favorite things this month.
One of the other things I fell in love with is this “peachy” t-shirt. It’s embroidered and I think it’s so cute! I actually have another shirt that says “peachy on it but there’s something about this color that I couldn’t stay away from.
Air Dry Cream
Monat Air Dry Cream gives your hair texture for days. If you have thin hair, fine hair, or just need more texture in general, this is what you need. I put a little bit on my ends after I get out of the shower and it makes my hair more full and voluminous when it dries than it normally looks. I love the texture it has and how beautiful it makes my hair looks when I’m done. It gives my hair that body and volume that I’m always looking for. I haven’t been able to find these results in products like this before, but this one has really worked out for me.
The second one of these favorite things is also for texture. I’m a firm believer that the higher the hair, the closer to heaven. I LOVE voluminous hair and how beautiful it makes me feel. This is the Kristen Ess Loose Styling Powder. I previously tried out the texture spray and it just wasn’t working out for me. It was making my hair feel heavy and weighed down. With this, I’m able to shake out the amount that I want and put it in strategic places. It give my hair that lift and volume that I want throughout the week. I don’t wash my hair very often. Honestly, I probably only wash it 1-2 times a week. But, this powder gives my hair lift like I said before without falling flat even when I lay down on it.
Now, I’m on the skincare! When I first moved to Florida, my skin seriously suffered. I was breaking out all the time, my skin was just all over the place, and I didn’t know what to do. This is the Riversol Exfoliating Glycolic Peel. This definitely helped my skin start over again. It helped balance my skin and make it a little more even than it was before. I put it on for a little while, let it sit, and washed it off. Instead of having combination skin at the end of it, it made it all even without all my oily patches. I wasn’t breaking out nearly as bad which was a huge blessing. I normally don’t rave about skincare products, because honestly, I’ve had a hard time finding ones that work for me. This is one of the rare and the few situations where it actually worked and I’ll be using this for a long time.
I love all lipstick products! If it’s been made, I’ve probably tried it. (Not really but really! I’ve tried a bunch! I got this lipstick at a Favorite Nights party. It’s the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick and it’s so amazing! I liked Lipsense for a while but it ended up making my lips super dry over time. This one actually stays while I’m eating and it doesn’t irritate my lips at all. My two favorite shades are Lover and Seductress and I’m wearing Lover in the video. I love how it wears on my lips and doesn’t dry them out completely like other lipsticks I’ve used in the past.
The last of my beauty favorite things is the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. I usually wasn’t a believer in makeup setting sprays until I used this. My makeup doesn’t come off at all. I put it on right before I apply mascara so it doesn’t run all over my face. My skin isn’t irritated which is rare for me and it actually makes my makeup stay. I usually have my eyeliner or my eyeshadow all over my face at the end of the day and since I began using this, that never happens.
I’ve fallen back in love with one of my favorite hair tools: the Beachwaver! I’m using the S1.25 and I love the style it gives me. It’s actually an automatic curling iron so it easily curls my hair towards or away from my face at the push of a button. I forgot how quick it is and it cuts my time doing my hair in half.
I wasn’t sure if I should put this in lifestyle or beauty but this is the Paradontax Toothpaste. I’m convinced I have the most sensitive teeth of anybody on Earth. It was impossible for me to eat anything hot or cold because it was so sensitive. Even my gums bleed as soon as you touch them. (Sorry for the TMI.) I’m not sure why it’s like that. I promise I brush and floss my teeth since my dad is my dentist haha. This toothpaste is a complete lifesaver and helps prevent sensitivity. I’ve noticed an insane difference and my gums don’t bleed at all anymore. I know I’m not the only one who suffers with this so definitely give it a try if you have a hard time with this.
Last but not least, I have my giant weighted blanket from My Calm. Oh my goodness this has helped me sleep and helps with anxiety. I’ve never been diagnosed with anxiety but I do have anxious moments. Whenever I’m having an episode I curl up with this I have a 20 lb blanket but it does come in 10 and 15 lbs too.It’s super soft and has helped me in the things that I need. I know if you try it out, you may not want to go back to regular blankets because it feels like you’re being hugged all the time.
Those are all my favorite things for the month of October! Let me know which one of these you want to try and what your favorite things were this month so I can try some more out in November.
