October 2014 Favorites

Hello everyone, today I am going to share with you my October favorites!  Makeup, bath and body, haircare, and more, October was a great month for all things autumn! Plus, if you want to watch a video of me explaining my favorites, there is a video from my youtube channel in the beginning of this post.  I hope you all enjoy, and the links to the available idems mentioned will be listed in Chloe's These are a few of my Favorite things 



My first makeup favorite is this gorgeous blush by Sleek in the color 926 Rose Gold.  This is a perfect autumn blush that adds a deep pink golden glow to my cheeks.  I am in love with this product and it's literally the only blush I've been wearing this season! 

This Milani Illuminating face powder is a beautiful product to use as a bronzer if you have a fair skin tone.  It is in the shade 02 Hermosa rose and I use it as a bronzer because it is just dark enough to contour but doesn't look fake on my now pale fall/winter skin.  It has a deep rose tint to it's light brown shade and a bit of a glow as well.  If you are looking for a more natural product to warm up your face this is the one for you! Above is a further away picture of the product when I first got it and an up close one of  how it looks now.

For lip products I have been using this L'oreal lipliner in the shade Beyond Pink a lot!  It is a matte pink toned nude liner that reminds me of the lip color that Kylie Jenner wears often.  I wear this liner all over my lips and it gives off a nice neutral tone, which is perfect paired with a bold eyeshadow look.

The last makeup product I am going to talk about is this beautiful dark lipgloss by Maybelline in the shade 110 Mirrored Mauve.  It is a beautiful plum/berry/mauve high shine and pigment gloss.  I also love that this shade is not too dark for everyday wear, so I am constantly reaching for this beautiful mauve lip product!

In October I tried these two Argon oil of morocco products by the brand Organix and I love them both!  The product on the left is their penetrating oil, I use it before or after straightening and/or blowdrying my hair and it makes my hair soft, shiny, and healthy looking!  The product on the right is the Intense moisturizing treatment which I put in my hair after a shower and leave it in over night, this as well makes my hair super soft, and healthy looking.  But just to be warned with these too products, they do not fix broken hair, they just restore softness and shine to make it appear healthy, with that said they do their job well and that is why they are favorites of mine for this month!  


Yes, I do adore Sally Hanson nail polishes, but I thought that this month I would branch out and find something new,  it turns out that I found a favorite!  This Wet n Wild Megalast nail polish in the shade 206c Undercover is a beautiful mauve shade that is perfect for the fall!  Paired with my Sally Hanson Super shine top coat this polish wears just like a Sally Hanson one which is perfect because I am in love with the color! 

Of course I have been wearing a Sally Hanson polish as well this October!  This one is from the Diamond strength collection in the shade 420 Nude shimmer.  I love the light pink undertone to this nude / rose gold polish.  Such a gorgeous,  wearable, shimmer polish, that lasts about a week with no chips!


For fashion, this month I can't stop wearing this super cozy dress paired with my knee high socks!  The cream dress I have on is from Brandy Melville.  It is long sleeved and made of a soft cotton material witch is perfect for layering in the fall and winter seasons.  Since it is a cream colored dress and a bit see through I had to wear another dress underneath it, so I paired it with a beige floral shift dress from American eagle. I love how the floral dress can be seen peaking out of the bottom of the dress and the straps are shown as well, because it adds a vintage feel to to the outfit.  Since I went for a comfy look I have been obsessed with wearing my brown, knit, knee high socks from Target with this dress and they are so cute and cozy!  You may also recognize this outfit from my fall lookbook! Except in that picture, (third down) I dressed it up a bit more with my nude flats, this just shows the same dress can be worn different ways and give off a totally different vibe. 
Bath & Body 

I have quite a few fall scents I have been loving this month that I am excited to share with you!  This first pair is a soap and a body mist in the scent Pumpkin Latte & Marshmallow comfort. The key notes are Pumpkin latte, Toasted Marshmallow, Creamy Sandalwood, White Ginger, and Praline Musk.  This scent is so warm, sweet and cozy, it reminds me of cuddling up by the fire on a cool autumn day.  When I went to find the bottle to type the scent description I was happily surprised to find this scent in lotion form as well! I didn't even remember I bought it! 

This Sweet Cinnamon pumpkin triple moisture body cream has been a life saver for my skin.  It smells beautifully reminiscent of pumpkin pie which is an added bonus too!  The key notes are Heirloom Pumpkin, Autumn Cinnamon,  Ginger Snap, Whipped Vanilla, and Golden amber.  I put this lotion on before I go to bed and all night and all morning I have smooth skin smelling of pumpkin pie.

This last product is a hand cream also by Bath and Bodyworks in the scent Vermont Sugar Maple.  Let me just tell you, this is one of my favorite scents that Bath and Bodyworks has ever made and I was so upset when they didn't make it in a fragrance or soap.  It's a sweet scent that smells deliciously of a maple cookie and I am obsessed!  This was a fall 2013 product and I knew they wouldn't make many more, so I bought 3 of them last year!  I wish it was still available, because this is my fall hand cream that I carry in my purse at all times and I will be pretty upset when it runs out.   

Cute things 

First for my Cute Things category is this Pumpkin tumblr cup!  It really got me into the Halloween spirt in October, and since I drink smoothies constantly, and I love collecting smoothie cups. This one was a cute addition to my collection! 

The last idem in this blogpost is my favorite favorite of October!  A cream colored fuzzy Blanket from Target!  I literally live wrapped in this blanket and only take it off when I leave the house (the obsession is real).  It's so soft and cuddly, the perfect blanket for chilly weather.  It was only 12 dollars at Target, and if I knew I would be this obsessed I would have bought wayyyy more!!
