October Beauty Favorites

It’s hard to believe that this is one of the last beauty favorites posts for 2015! Since October was such a hectic month, there only were a few beauty products that stood out and helped get me through a beach vacation, bridesmaid duties and the transition to fall. 

This mousse and finishing spray are a power duo, especially when I choose to style my hair with my Hot Tools hot thermal brush – the mousse gives great body and hold to my hair when it is freshly washed and blow-dried, and the finishing spray creates a crazy amount of volume without making my hair appear stiff. I also have been crushing hard on false lashes lately – this pair from Ardell is my favorite, and I actually cut them in half to only accentuate the outer half of my eyes. I did this trick for my cousin’s wedding, and I was thrilled with how my eyes/eye makeup looked in photos as a result. Lastly, fall just isn’t complete until I can bust out my favorite fall lipstick shade from Rimmel – I wore this on my wedding day, and it has continued to be a favorite ever since.

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
