October Favorites

I’m going to sound like a teenage girl here – but a couple people I watch on YouTube do a ‘Monthly Favorites’ video. Its basically a video where they showcase just a bunch of stuff that they particularly loved that month. For some reason I am so intrigued by these videos and I look forward to them at the end of each month. Then an idea struck me! I could do a monthly favorites blog. So here we are. And here we go.


Gel Effect Nail Laquer, Aurora, in color Inky Dinky: I love this new color. It is such a fun Fall color and I think it will be a good Winter hue as well – its a deep blue/purple (i swear it changes colors) but it can also look black. It also doesn’t chip super fast, either as far as I can tell, at least when you use a top and base coat. I’m looking forward to grabbing some more colors from this brand! (link to favorite)


CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lip Color in Blossom Berry (#555): Years and years and years ago my cute momma bought me a few different colors (a red, a pink and a nude) that are this same brand. I swear by this lipstick because it is affordable (always a plus) and stays on SO well. Literally all day. It goes on sort of like a gloss then once its dry, you apply basically a chapstick over it. The actual product is pretty drying so the chapstick is kind of a heaven sent and I reapply the chapstick (or a different tube of chapstick) throughout the day. I found this dark purple color a few weeks ago with my momma and sister and I love it! Its bold and fun, very appropriate for Fall…I’m in love with it. (link to favorite)


Loafers: I have talked about these shoes before on the blog, but they’re so good that I’m talking about them again. These are the loafers my mom so kindly bought me from Target on a day my feet were particularly swollen and busting out of almost every other pair of shoes I owned. They are so comfy! I bought them a little big so my feet can swell and shrink as they please, so I am kind of wondering how they’ll fit after I deliver, but for now, they’re my go-to shoes (who cares if they match the outfit!) I call them my Grandpa Shoes because they remind me of shoes my grandpa wears. That probably sounds like a turn-off to most people, but to me it only made them more appealing. At Target I only saw them in grey and black, but if you look online I think there are 2 or 3 more colors to choose from. Hmm, do you think I need a few new pairs?… (link to favorite)


Black Maternity Tights: Wild Man and I wandered through H&M several weeks ago just to see if they had anything we ‘needed.’ We left the store with two baby hats and a double pack of black maternity tights that were $1! I only started wearing the tights a couple weeks ago as the weathers got cooler, but I am really loving them! They aren’t as sheer as I thought they’d be (thats a good thing) and they fit up and over my belly so nice and don’t cut into my skin and create a weird crease in my body. Love ’em.

Grey Fleece Leggings: I am a leggings girl. I wear leggings all the time and am always down to try a new pair. I got these grey fleece leggings from The Nest on Main Boutique and not only are they comfy like all leggings are, but they’re also so warm. I caught them on sale for $6, but I think they’re regularly $12. (link to favorite)


Village Naturals Therapy, Aches and Pains Tension Relief, Bath Salts: I take at least one bath a day, if not more. Between my back, hips, sciatic pain and general aches and pains, bath time is a bit of sweet relief for me. They only got better when I found these bath salts from Target. They were reasonably priced, they smell good and I swear they help my body out. (link to favorite)


Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate: I have Gestational Diabetes (only a few more weeks of that torture – woo!) and am on a strict diet. Sugar and carbs are pretty much a no-no for me, unfortunately. I have a huge sweet tooth so its been rough, guys. Here and there I’ve been finding sugar-free treats that aren’t too bad, but about a week ago my mom bought me some (brand name) sugar-free hot chocolate. It tastes just like hot chocolate! It has made me so happy, you have no idea. This has been my saving grace and helps satisfy my sweet tooth as best as one can when they can’t have sugar. (found at local grocery stores)
