5 Things I loved in October

Happy Monday friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to thank you for all the kind words and well wishes on my first day back to work! I was thankfully a lot less emotional than I expected to be and coming home to her smiles and cuddles was just the best, not to mention starting back at work on a Thursday made for a much easier transition! Similar to my post last month with 5 things I loved in September, I wanted to share a few of the things that I just couldn't get enough of in October!
Whiskey in a Teacup || My sister surprised me with this book early on in the month and I couldn't get enough of every single chapter. What I loved is that you could actually here Reese talking as you're reading the book. It was great to have her ins and outs to style, entertaining & the recipes!
Summer Friday's Jet Lag Mask || I have used this every single day since I purchased it at the beginning of the month and it's one of the best products that has left my skin feeling so hydrated. I use it right after the shower and then in the mornings as a moisturizer. It's so lightweight and free of pretty much every single toxin so you can feel confident putting it on your skin. I already know I'll be repurchasing it this Friday during the VIB sale! 
Sophia's first Halloween || We celebrated Sophia's first official holiday with Halloween! She was a little too tired to go out and enjoy the festivities, but we did manage to have a little pre-party fun at our neighbors house with all the kids. I felt a little bad that we didn't dress up like the other parents, but next year we'll be better! 

Wedge Booties || My wedge booties that I first mentioned in this post, finally came in at the tail end of October and I have been wearing them non-stop! They are so comfortable and the exact type of shoe I was looking for to give the jeans and sweater look a little more pop! As far as sizing goes, they run true to size.
Maybelline Lipgloss || I've become somewhat obsessed with these lipglosses. I currently mix "charmer" and "too cute" & really want to get a few more. I will say a little goes a long way and you do have to be careful since it can transfer to your teeth! 

I looked at the calendar and realized that I'm coming up on my 5 year blogging anniversary which is just nuts!! I'll be doing a really fun giveaway in the next couple of weeks to celebrate! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  1. I tried the audiobook version (where Reese is actually talking) and just couldn't get into it even though I wanted to love it. Also wedge booties? Where have these been

  16. I know I've mentioned it before, but Sophia in her costume is just absolute perfection! That smile! She's going to be a heartbreaker, Biana (as if she isn't already!!!) Unrelated, I need to try that mask. This baby has done such a number on my skin, and I feel as though my skin is always dehydrated these days! Thanks for sharing! Happy Monday - and happy November!

  35. Gorgeous Autumn colours in Boston! Hey you did well to get Sophia dressed up - so cut and cuddly, I wouldn't worry about you not being dressed up too! Glad your work transition went well - sounds like you have a great balance going. Children always benefit from being left with different people at a young age, they get super social skills - and C cant' remember where he was or what he did before about 6, let alone that he was in nursery so much!

I'm loving all the gorgeous Fall foliage in this post too. We don't get to enjoy that beauty here so I'm a little jelly LOL. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
