1.Glossier Boy Brow – If you saw my Glossier review (and this post about my trip to the Glossier showroom) then this favorite is no surprise. Boy Brow is one of those rare products that’s quick and easy to use and actually delivers on its promise of giving you enviable brows. I have the shade Brown but it also comes in Blond, Black and Clear.

2. Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation—After hearing rave reviews on this foundation, I finally picked one up and there’s definitely a reason this foundation has amassed so many positive reviews. It gives full coverage but doesn’t look heavy, it has great staying power, and it’s completely affordable.

3. Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk—Are we surprised that another Glossier product made it into my May Favorites? This cream blush is another gem I picked up during my trip to the Glossier showroom and I can’t stop using it. It blends easily into the skin and the color is a beautiful bronzey, mauvey shade that works with any look. Needless to say, I’m completely obsessed with it.

4. Vans Sk8-Hi Slim Cutout DX shoes—Let’s get one thing straight—when it comes to fashion, I’m all about comfort. When I’m running around the city, the last thing I want to be worried about is whether my footwear is comfortable. These high-top Vans are super comfy and they work with any outfit. If you’re looking for a good summer sneaker, I highly recommend picking up a pair of Vans!

October Favorites!

Happy Halloween! I hope you are all having a spooky, scary, fun day!

October has been a crazy month for me. One big thing that happened is I became unemployed! I really needed a break from the environment I was working in and am now eager to spend more time with my family and friends, and of course, have more time to blog!

So, in no particular order, here are my October Favorites:

Lip Gloss Tins: If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I’m a sucker for any kind of lip product. I’ve amassed a nice collection of lip gloss tins and I absolutely love them! They smell amazing, leave your lips with a subtle shine, and are extremely easy to apply on-the-go. Plus they can be used on cuticles or dry skin in a pinch!


Fuzzy Slippers: It’s finally starting to feel like fall around here, and that can only mean one thing: it’s time to break out my favorite fuzzy slippers! They may look atrocious, but they’re super warm and comfy, and they make me feel a little like my girl Ke$ha. Check out some similar ones here.


Wet ‘n Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder in Catwalk Pink: If you saw my “Drugstore Beauty Haul” a few days ago, you know I just picked this little guy up. Technically I haven’t used this product the entire month of October, but I just couldn’t resist including it in my Favorites. I’ve used it every single day since I purchased it either all-together as a blush/bronzer, or using the colors separately as an eye shadow, highlighter, or blush. It’s definitely a great multi-tasking product to have on hand! Plus you can’t beat the price!


Arm & Hammer SpinBrush Pro Sensitive Electric Toothbrush: I know this is kind of boring, but just go with me. Taking care of your teeth is important! My dentist recommended an electric toothbrush to me, and this one was right in my budget. Ever since I started using it, my dentist has commented on how good my teeth look. I prefer the Sensitive version of this toothbrush, but there are several other options including ProWhitening, ClassicClean, and Sonic.

Pretty Little Liars: I’ve been watching this show from the beginning, but with all the downtime I have now, I started re-watching all the episodes. So it’s not the best acting, and the story lines are a little lot ridiculous, but it’s so addictive and every episode keeps me guessing. Plus I adore the clothes, hair, and makeup the cast wears!


What are your favorites from the month of October? Leave me a link to your Favorites list in the Comments section…with all this extra free time I have, I’ll need something to do!
