Happy Tuesday and First Week of October!
I just absolutely love the season of fall, and no doubt October is one of my favorite months, despite the fact that I'm not a huge fan of Halloween. I love how the weather is at a cool temperature, cute and comfy clothing pieces, colorful leaves, warm drinks, and the fact that Thanksgiving and Christmas are getting closer!
I'm always up for checking the latest fall trends. So after doing some research and checking my latest collections for the season, here are my top ten favorite things for this month!
1.) Pink Lokai Bracelet
In case nobody knew, it's Breast Cancer Awareness month. So Lokai made these new hot pink bracelets to spread the awareness and have companies like Francesca's promote and sell them. They have been so popular, I love all the Instagram pictures that people are posting with these bracelets! I recently just bought my own at a shop this past weekend and I am in love with it. Hopefully sometime soon I'm going to post my own picture with it and spread the awareness of the cancer.
Where to Buy: Lokai
2.) Starbucks's Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
I know hot chocolate is a bit more of a drink for the winter, but why have to wait two more months? I watched a "Fall Favorites" video on YouTube and the girl mentioned that her favorite fall drink was the salted caramel hot chocolate. I was like, "I've been ordering lattes this whole entire time and I never knew about this?!" And when I tried it, I was like, "Yup, this is definitely a fall favorite."
Where to Buy: Starbucks (obviously)
3.) Gingerbread Pumpkin Candle
The only thing getting "lit" on my weekends are fall scented candles! Unfortunately, I do not have any fall candles because my dorm won't allow them (I'm sure most dorms have that same rule). Recently, I was shopping and saw this specific candle and smelled it, and oh my word. It has a perfect combination of sweet and spicy, and a perfect combination for both pumpkin and gingerbread lovers!
Where to Buy: Vera Bradley
4.) Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Hand Gel
My mom buys this hand soap for every fall season and it is the best. Sometimes I wash my hands twice just to embrace the amazing smell of pumpkin and cinnamon. Plus, Bath and Body Works has the best body and fragrance products, hands down.
Where to Buy: Bath and Body Works
5.) Burgundy Nail Polish
Now that the light nail colors of summer have been put back in the drawer, it's time to bring out some darker colors for fall! I'm not crazy about dark color tones for nail polish, but I really love this burgundy color from OPI, also known as "Bastille My Heart". It dries up quickly and goes with every outfit and makeup. Plus, I love how it's the color of red wine!
Where to Buy: OPI
6.) Smashbox Lip Stainer
I've already mentioned how much I love this lip product, but I'm going to say it again, I LOVE IT! I love the rose color and texture, you could literally wear it all day and it'll last. It's literally the lipstick every girl needs, am I right?!
Where to Buy: Smashbox
7.) "Treasure Yourself: Power Thoughts for My Generation" by Miranda Kerr
I have yet to read this, I've had it hidden in my book shelfs for a while now. But I have a great feeling that I'm really going to enjoy it. Miranda Kerr proves that not only is she a supermodel but a role mode, and that's what makes her so beautiful. I can't wait for when I find time to read this, and I recommend this for anyone else look for a good book this month!
Where to Buy: Barnes and Noble
8.) Long Sweater Vest
Finally, it's sweater weather! Cardigan vests are becoming super popular in both the fashion and fall trend. I just recently bought myself one, not the one in the picture above but a very similar one in a small shop called Apple Tree. I love it so much, it looks great and is so cozy! It looks great with jeans, white shirts, and all black clothing.
Where to Buy: Macy's
9.) Hempz Body Lotion
Natalie showed me this lotion and how shimmery it looks on skin, so we took a trip to Ulta Beauty and I bought one for myself! I absolutely love it, I love the vanilla and sugar smell of it. The glitter is my favorite part, it makes my skin look so magical and shiny. It kind of makes me feel like Tinker Bell!
Where to Buy: Ulta Beauty
10.) Too Faced Mascara
You know that beautiful moment when you finally find the perfect mascara? Well, I finally found mine! I just purchased this product from Too Faced and it has been so helpful for my lashes. They have perfect volume and texture, my lashes have never felt so beautiful! And yes, the name of the mascara happens to be "Better Than Sex", no joke.
Where to Buy: Sephora
