October Favorites


I love Octobers. Fall is probably my favorite season, and I associate it most with October. It went by crazy fast this year between midterms and spontaneous trips home, but it was definitely a fun month while it lasted. Fall semesters are always a good time with game days each Saturday, and it's hard to believe we had our last one (besides Thanksgiving weekend, but most of us won't be here!) this past Saturday. Here's what I was loving in October:

L I S T E N I N G // Someone got me hooked on Adele and I can't stop listening to her. I had completely forgotten about her (how, I have no idea) but now that she's back on my current rotation I'm obsessed all over again.

S H O P P I N G // I actually have to chill out a little with the shopping. I bought these Doc Marten's and these Nike's last month, as well as a new pair of Lululemon leggings that I mentioned here. Oh, and this cozy sweater and this jacket (the softest thing I now own). Everything has quickly become a staple in my fall wardrobe, but I need to calm down a little, haha.

A C C E S S O R I Z I N G // I bought this set of scrunchies during the Shopbop sale and they are the best $10 I ever spent. I donated a few to my roommates and we are all obsessed with them!

B E A U T Y // I talked a little bit about my new favorite mascara in this blog post! Another product I've been really into is this liquid highlighter. I've actually had it forever but kind of forgot about it until recently. I used to wear a lot of bronzer and highlighter and it just looked like I had so much more makeup on. I have this liquid highlighter in the shade gleam so it makes me look both tan and glowy at the same time! Plus, the liquid consistency makes it blend so much easier than powder!

E X E R C I S I N G // Hahah... what's that? I think this was the worst month for me in terms of working out just because I found myself spending all of my free time at office hours and in the library to the point where I couldn't even think about taking an hour away from school to go for a run or get in a workout. This month I know I need to be better about actually planning out when I'm going to work out so that I can fit it into my schedule without any excuses.

D R I N K I N G // Haha I always feel weird calling this category drinking because I'm about to talk about coffee-- not anything else. The Trader Joe's pumpkin spice coffee is so good. I really love the flavor! You guys know I can't survive a day in my life without a cup or two of coffee in the morning, and this coffee really got me in the fall mood and started my day off well. I still have about half of the canister left because it's huge, so I'm happy to have it for a little while longer!

What were you loving throughout October?

  1. Fran I LOVED this post! I've been loving Leslie Odom Jr. who reminds me so much of Adele's style and smooth voice! His Christmas playlist (early I know, oops!) is AMAZING!
