Monthly Favorites | October

1. The Boston Red Sox*. Do I need to say more? Go read my blog post from yesterday if you don’t know why they made my #1 spot on my favorites’ list this month!

2. It’s apple season again and Honeycrisp apples* might be my all-time favorites! Sweet and tangy at the same time and really crisp! Have you tried them? If not, you should! 

3. I don’t have a lot of eye makeup and I am not very adventurous with colors, so I always end up with a neutral color palette, but this  Maybelline Designer Chocolates Eyeshadow Quad* is a bit more adventurous with a hint of purple in it.

4. I don’t remember if I mentioned that I won another pair of running shoes on Instagram a few weeks ago, the Brooks Levitate 2*. Incidentally, I was in the market for a new pair of shoes anyway, so this giveaway win was just perfect timing. I’ve also been running a few different Brooks shoes in the past, so I was excited to try the Levitates and I’ve been really happy with them so far! Also, don’t you just love the colors? So cheerful!

5. I got this Cinnamon Apple Cider candle* at Target after someone recommended it to me and I love the smell. It’s not too overwhelming, but it definitely fills the room. It’s the perfect fall scent!

6. We recently picked up one of the frozen Trader Joe’s Cheese Pizzas* (just to have something in the freezer as a backup option) and the pizza is actually really good. Nice and crisp crust, simple ingredient list, affordable. You could also add your own toppings if desired. What’s not to love?

7. If you’d ask J and me to put our favorite snack plate together, it would look like an antipasti platter. We love snacking on cheese, olives, pickles, salami, and those Mezzetta Cherry Peppers*. They’re not spicy at all, but really juicy and sweet. 

What was one of your favorite things this month?

  1. Congrats on winning another pair of running shoes! That’s awesome. I LOVE honeycrisp apples; they really are the best. I like eating it with peanut butter. :)


  2. Fall apples really can’t be beat! Especially when you make homemade applesauce. I’m loving making my own soups and cozying up at home.

  3. I love those Maybelline eye shadow quads! They are my favorite! Very wearable. That candle sounds amazing. And yay for winning some shoes!!

  4. I am in love with those shoes! The colors are so fun. :) I own some of the Maybelline quads and am so grateful for them. I’m not a big makeup user, so the less thinking and color matching i have to do, the better. :)

  5. The Red Sox for sure! Also a new handsfree earpiece for my cell phone. I have never used one before, but I splurged and bought one, and I love it!

  6. I also LOVE honey crisp apples. I’m so glad it’s apple season. I don’t buy them when they aren’t in season locally as they don’t taste as good when they are shipped from other parts of the country/world. So I’m eating an apple a day while they are in their prime season here in MN!

    I had a bit of a love affair with dried mango this month but I’m nipping that habit in the bud because I was eating the whole package instead of a serving of it and while there are worse snacks, it’s a lot of sugar! But dang is it a tasty snack!

  7. I swear, you’re the luckiest girl on the internet – I’m always impressed with how many giveaways you win!
