Monthly Muse: October 2021 Favorites

 I simply cannot believe that October is almost over. Halloween is in a few days and once again, my favorite month is coming to an end. I will admit, this month was hard for me. I didn't feel mentally well and was just overwhelmed, confused, and a little off. It didn't feel like October, as much as I tried to put myself in the spirit... I'm sure it had a lot to do with the weather because it was like 80 degrees for half the month.

This past weekend it really felt like fall, though, and I couldn't be happier about that! I hosted a little Halloween party for my friends and it was so cute and so much fun. Then, I went to my 10-year high school reunion, and being back in the school, with my friends, in the cool weather truly felt like fall. I'll be soaking up the last few weeks of the season before Black Friday when I get fully in Christmas mode.

I've been seeing so many Christmas products online and it's making me so excited for the really cold and cozy weather. I simply can't wait, though I want time to pass very slowly.

We're also almost a month away from my 29th birthday and that is a whole other debacle in itself. I'm so nervous to say goodbye to my twenties without being where I thought I would. That's an entirely different post so let's try to stay positive right now!

 I did a lot of shopping this month and found so many new products that I am simply in love with! Let's get into it.





J.Crew Cashmere Slippers

I haven't done any J. Crew shopping lately but something made me check the website and I fell in love with a few cashmere pieces. These cashmere ballet slippers in the camel color were calling my name and I couldn't pass them up. I have a few different pairs of slippers but none that I'm currently obsessed with or feel totally comfortable in so I figured a ballet slipper might be good. 

They are very comfortable and light on your feet, so you don't drag them around the house. They aren't slippery on the floor (or inside on your feet) and stay on very securely. They also don't make my feet sweat which is important for the ever-changing New York weather. I'm very tempted to buy these slippers in more colors, that is how much I love them.

iPad Mini 6

I had been wanting a new (or additional) iPad for a while now. I loved my iPad mini 5 and raved about it for months but I wanted something a little more updated and powerful. I was considered an iPad Pro but then when I saw Apple release the iPad Mini 6 in their September event, I knew I had to have it. It's super sleek, a little bigger than the 5, and has all the updated software so it's more hi-tech and powerful. I received it at the end of September and honestly have been using it more than my iPhone. 

I'm going to do a full review post soon but I had to include it here. I cannot get enough of this little device! 

Kate Spade Nylon Shoulder Bag


It's no secret that I am fully back into Kate Spade and when I saw this nylon shoulder bag, I couldn't *not* get it. Shoulder bags are back in and thanks to Prada, so is nylon. I thought it was the perfect solution to a more expensive one. I ordered it from Nordstrom this month and haven't used anything since. Shoulder bags are wonderful! They're easy to carry, hold a ton, and are very comfortable on your shoulder. I'm going to do an entire review post and video about this soon but if you need a new everyday bag that is sleek, chic, and holds a ton without looking too big and overstuffed, this nylon bag is a MUST.

Love Wellness Gut Feelings Probiotics

Because I've been so confused and foggy lately, I decided that maybe I needed to start thinking of my health as a whole versus just mental and I know how much the gut is linked to your brain so I figured I should try these Love Wellness probiotics that I've had in my drawer for a few months. I started taking them as directed, on an empty stomach in the morning, and I'm not sure if it's a placebo effect but I do feel a little more regulated, in more ways than one, and it's just a good feeling to take care of your mental and physical health, even if it's only you trying! I love Love Wellness so much so it's no surprise that I really enjoy these probiotics; they don't have a bad after taste and have started working immediately. I literally trust Lo Bosworth with my life.

What did you love this month?
