Monthly Muse: November 2016

My other favorite month has come to a close. It was a really emotional one at that, one of the most emotional months I've had in a while but I've come out the other side and I'm ready for Christmas.

Tomorrow is my 24th birthday, and I'm very melancholy about it. I'm not excited, I'm not dreading it, it's just there. Maybe I'm feeling this way because it's one step closer to 25, the big milestone birthday. Maybe I'm dreading it because it's been a rough year, and I'm looking forward to starting anew. Maybe I'm so so about it because I didn't celebrate with my friends.

It's just a weird feeling, but I've had that feeling all month long.

It's been interesting, but that hasn't deterred me from rounding up my favorites of the month.

First off, I'll get this out of the way; my two ultimate favorites were Thanksgiving & Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. I dedicated an entire podcast episode to the revival of Gilmore Girls, so definitely take a listen.



There were plenty of other favorites this month:

1. Kate Spade Activity Tracker: After writing this post, I was desperate for my Kate Spade tracker. I was over my fitbit; it needs to be charged too much, and has all these features I don't use. I just wanted something cute & fun. I decided to repurchase my Kate Spade tracker, and got the black polka dots. Also, it was almost $30 cheaper, since it's been on the market for a while. I love this little thing so much. It's adorable, useful, and gives ms exactly what I'm looking for.

2. Kittenish Heart Sleeve Sweatshirt: I've been loving Jessie James Decker's clothing line "Kittenish" for the past few months now. She releases a new collection every few months, and for the "fall" collection, I fell in love with this Heart Sleeve Sweatshirt. It's very comfortable, and the elbow patches are soft and great quality. I get so many compliments whenever I wear it, and it's a must-have for me this winter season!

3. Interior Design: I live with my mother, and am single AF so I'm not NESTING but my goodness it feels like it. I've been obsessed with interior design and making my house nice for the holidays, and decorating. I've been reading all the house magazines, like Martha Stewart Living, Good Housekeeping, and Domino. I just have become a homemaker and the holiday season has definitely brought it out in me.

4. DryBar 3 Day Bender & Tress Press Styling Iron: My obsession with the Drybar has continued this month and it resulted in two big purchases. I was in the market for new hair tools because my mom, my sister, and I have ridiculous coarse, thick hair so we go through tools pretty quickly. My curling iron broke, and the straightener is going soon, so I opted to by these two that I've been lusting after for a while. Both of them are INTENSE; they get hot really quickly and I can do my hair within 10-15 minutes. It's insane and I love them. Two of the best purchases ever.

Enjoy the final days of November, everyone!
