1.) I have been so patiently waiting for this album… four whole years. Finally, Pearl Jam came out with their tenth studio album “Lightning Bolt” and of course, I had to own it on CD. I have all their CDs and I’ll collect all their physical CDs until they stop making music or the end of time, whichever comes first.
2.) Kashi Autum Wheat. I am usually very picky about cereal, because so many cereals have so much sugar and/or unpronounceable ingredients, but this has a pretty short ingredient list and there’s just a little bit of sweetness to it. Perfect.
3.) My blanket. Temperatures have dropped (especially in the last week) and I got my blanket out again. Our apartment is not the most well-insulated on this planet (and I know, I know, we live in California and winters here are not really that cold and all, but when I get up in the morning and it’s 64°F in our apartment: THAT’S COLD. Well, and when I sit on the couch at night (and I don’t want to use the heater quite yet, not only, but also because J is still very comfortable with the temperatures), I like to have my blanket. Coziness factor included.
4.) Trader Joe’s has a new seasonal tea and I really like it. The new tea is called Harvest Blend Herbal Tea and it’s a really smooth, tasty blend that you should definitely try. Just right for those long winter evenings when you’re cuddled up with a good book.
5.) I need a new mascara and this one was on sale and I am so glad I bought it. Almay’s Get Up and Grow Mascara definitely has been a favorite this month. It has a nice brush that does a great job separating and getting all lashes and it’s pretty much clump-free and has a gentle formula for sensitive eyes.
6.) I am not much of a Halloween person, mostly because J wants to watch scary movies and I just can’t do scary movies. Tim Burton movies, however, are my favorite and we’ve been watching quite a few this month.
