7 Things I Loved in October

How the hell are there only two months left in 2018?! It’s crazy that the holiday season is practically here, and it’s time to get myself in gear to finish out the year on a strong note. So let’s jump right in today with 7 things I loved in October.

Beauty & Hair

Blondes, listen up! The Pravana Perfect Blonde Purple Toning Masque is the BEST at-home purple toning treatment that I’ve ever used. Not only does it help restore the cool, icy blonde tones, it also leaves your hair ridiculously soft and moisturized. Even Ryan noticed the difference in my color after one use.

The L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine lipsticks are reminiscent of the no-longer Revlon Butter lipsticks. Really pigmented shades, but with a hydrating formula that feel great on the lips. Varnished Rosewood is my current go-to color. More of my current beauty favorites can be found here.

My new favorite boots.


Music | Probably no surprise here that the A Star Is Born Soundtrack was my most-played last month. I admit that the movie was kind of a letdown – I have mixed feelings on it, and I’ll always be bias to the Judy Garland version. But, there’s no denying how great the music is.

T.V. | We finally got around to watching Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime. Spoiler alert: we loved it. Definitely didn’t think it was the type of show I would get into, but we ended up bingeing all eight episodes in only a couple days because I just had to know what was going to happen. The cute John Krasinski that I love is still there but mixed in with a lot of badass. I dig it.

This post from Jessica was a home run. Who hasn’t felt this way about something at some point in their life? I always admire others who are willing to be vulnerable and in turn become way more relatable.

Also, just a quick PSA that tomorrow is election day! If you didn’t get out to vote early, please please PLEASE head to the polls to exercise your civic duty. Those who vote together stay together! 😉
