It’s October, which is crazy– I feel like not only did the summer fly by, but September went by in a blink!
I want to start a monthly feature on the blog with my favorite things that I’m loving right now. Back when Oprah was on, my favorite episodes were always her “Favorite Things” episodes. I love hearing about new products that can improve my life, so hopefully these can help you in some way!
First of all, I will let it be known that I should be a member of Mascara Addicts Anonymous. I love trying new mascaras, and this is L’Oreal’s newest addition to the Voluminous line (I’m a big Voluminous fan.) It’s supposed to be a knock off of Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara, which has a huge following and is supposed to be amazing.
What I love about this mascara is that it gives you both volume and length, big time. I feel like most mascaras give you one or the other, but I love the effect of this. It works really well with the Voluminous Primer, too.
The only downside is I accidentally bought the waterproof version, which is a bear to take off!
Daily Mail Online App (it’s Free!)
I installed the Daily Mail app on my phone about a year ago, and it’s my favorite news app because it gives you quick details and bullet points on the big headlines. It’s also updated more often than other news apps. Even though it’s not even a US paper (the Daily Mail is a UK paper,) I find them to be a pretty decent source for national news.
I have always loved the Converse low tops, but I hated the way they made my feet look. I have big feet, and I feel like those sneakers always made my feet look like boats.
Until they introduced the Shoreline. They’re slip on, and the laces don’t go up as high on the front, so they make my feet look normal! And they’re comfortable.
I have them in charcoal grey, which I love. They also have an amazing rose gold color that I have to have!
I wear them with no show socks similar to these.
Back in the Spring, I found that I was getting really busy with kids sports, activity, and PTO stuff. I keep a bullet journal, but that wasn’t giving me the space I needed to write all my daily to-dos, plus I wanted something more lightweight and less “special” than my bullet journal, so if it got crushed in my bag or got lost, I would be fine with it.
I stumbled across this To Do List notebook by Bloom on Amazon, and I’m already on my second one.
I love that it’s not dated, so I didn’t waste any pages when we were on vacation and I was doing squat. It’s the perfect size and doesn’t weigh my bag down like other planners do. It’s perfect for what I need.
I discovered Lipsense back in May, and I have been hooked ever since. I don’t sell it, so that is my totally non-biased opinion. I love that the color lasts all day, I love how the lipgloss makes my lips feel (super soft,) and I love that I can layer the colors to make new colors.
My favorite colors are Praline Rose, which is a mauvey nude color (I don’t think mauvey is a real word, I just made it up!) Napa, and Sassy Z.
Those are my five favorites for October! Have you had any favorite finds this month?
