Tomorrow is Halloween. It feels like October went really fast but when I think about it, it really hasn't October was such a fun month for me, so much better than September. I was happier this month, things went my way, and I just had the best time.
It's always great when I have days, weeks, and months like that. It makes life so much sweeter.
I'm sad to see October go but November is definitely my second favorite month, since it's my birthday month! Just as good things happen in October, great things happen in November as well.
I don't have too many exciting things planned this month but I'm sure it won't disappoint.
I'm getting the hang of taking note of my monthly favorites and what I've been reaching for and loving through the weeks.
I think this will be better than September favorites but lets see, shall we?
//NYX Concealer: This was in my Ulta Haul earlier in the month and I have to say, I haven't used another concealer since. It's easy to apply, covers my dark circles, and is just light enough to add a little highlight to my under eye area. I don't know if I'll ever buy another drugstore concealer again. I have been debating though, to purchase my Erase Paste again or try Benefit's Boing concealer. Any suggestions?
//100% Pure French Lavender Hand Buttercream: I ordered this last year with the last of my Birchbox points and I've been loving it lately. With the cooler weather hitting NYC, my hands have been super dry. A little bit of this thick buttercream for your hands goes a long way and it doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy. It also smells heavenly.
//Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle: I received this in my October Birchbox and haven't stopped using it. It's a leave in conditioner that also detangles and it's my go to hair product of the month. My hair is back to it's natural state after a nice run with the Keratin conditioning treatment so I need all the help I could get. I spray this in my hair after a shower, let it sit for a few minutes and then brush it out. My hair is smooth, shiny, and easy to tame. I will 100% be purchasing a full size of this baby.
//Soy Body Whip: This is the definition of an oldie but goodie but I just found it again and I'm loving it. Like with the Pure French Buttercream, it keeps my hands soft and smooth without feeling greasy. I didn't realize it until I was examining the packaging that this is "body" whip (uh, duh Briana) but I've solely been using it on my hands. When I run out, I may purchase a full size to use as body lotion because my skin is going to dry up with the cold weather.
//Whitney English Day Designer: I know I raved about this during the summer, when I received it at the Smart Girls Group Conference but once I started working, it just was a hassle to use two planners. I liked having one planner for everything and that was my Lilly Pulitzer agenda. Well, this month, I started getting more serious about blogging and have been using the Day Designer as a scheduler for the days I'm working or blogging from home. I schedule out my days and it has been really helpful. I'm in love with it again!
Also, my favorite days from October were definitely my Little's 21st birthday, Homecoming 2014 and my first football game!
