October Favorite Things

Alright, it's that time again.  Here are a few of my favorite things for October. There is more food on here than normal, but whatever... I'm storing up for winter (and marathon training).

1.) Aquage Uplifting Foam

Ok, so this item is a little pricey, but I promise it's worth it.  I buy it off of, but I'm thinking of asking my hair stylist to buy it direct for me.  She usually sells it for the same price that the supply house has it marked.  Anyways, I have fine hair, but lots of it.  My hair lays very flat to my head, and this is the only stuff that really helps lift it away from my scalp.

2.) Fage Fruyo Cherry Yogurt

The only flavor of the Fruyo that I like is the cherry.  Yes, there is a high sugar content, but you have to think of it as a treat.  The black cherry smoothies from Panera are a past addiction of mine (that addiction ended quickly when I saw the nutrition info).  These yogurts taste JUST like those smoothies.  For 140 calories, I'd say that's a good swap.

3.) The Laughing Cow Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread

I'm loving the Laughing Cow queso cheese wedges, so when I saw that they had a cream cheese variety, I was SO excited.  Each wedge is 45 calories and is more than enough to put on two pieces of bread.  I put this stuff on Pumpkin Streusel bread from Target, and it is AMAZING.

4.) L'Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer

I have some serious dark circles under my eyes, and this covers them right up.  It is also kind of glow-y and acts as a highlighter.  I'm not big on doing the whole "highlight and contour" look for every day, but using this and some bronzer gives you a natural version.

5.) Target Long Sleeve Crew Neck Tees

These puppies are $8 a piece.  I have a weird thing with wearing v-necks in the winter.  I'm much more of a crew neck type of girl.  I like everything to covered up and warm and cozy.  Target has these in a bunch of fall colors and fun stripes.  I love the red and orange stripe, and they also have a grey and black.  Go get them all!

6.) Greek Yogurt Bars

George and I picked up a giant box of these at Costco.  These bars taste like an apple dessert, and we can't get enough.  Our box also had a pumpkin flavor with pumpkin seeds.  They taste like fall.

7.) Go Go Squeez Applesauce

This stuff is so perfect for long runs.  The Gu gels really gross me out, and anything that I have to chew is a total choking hazard.  These packets are resealable and big enough to get several servings with one packet. I keep one in my Flip belt, event though it makes me look like a have a tumor.

8.) Wright Socks

When I first started running, I had a terrible time with blisters.  These socks have two layers of fabric, so the outermost layer rubs against the inner layer instead of your foot.  I buy mine off of, and they have a ton of different colors and styles.

9.) Renew Lotion

With cold, dry air coming our way, my skin is going to freak out in protest.  I get awful dry patches that get red, itchy, and ugly.  This lotion is the ONLY thing I can find that takes care of the job.  I feel that it can get a little sticky if you use it all over, so I only put it on the areas where I get really dry.  It is a little pricey, but lasts forever if you only use it on problem areas.  My sister in law gets it for me, but you can also purchase it on Amazon.  It is a must if you have dry skin!

Alright, so there are my favorite things for October!  Go get you some!

What are your favorite things for October?


  1. I definitely want to try the cream cheese spread and pumpkin bread- ever since you posted about it on ig!

  2. Ok... I love how you do this! How do you make the actual collage... is it an app or website? And you always have cool favorite things!!

  3. LOVE Wright Socks. They are the best I've found for running, and it was purely by chance that my mom put them in my stocking last Christmas. They are perfect!

  4. Love the wright socks! I used them all the time when I was training. My favorite thing so far this fall is sugar free caramel creamer. I have been running off coffee lately :)

  5. That laughing cow cheese looks so delish! I'll have to check out that Loreal concealer. Night shift has left me with the worst dark circles! I love Target's basic tees. I have a few boyfriend ones and wear them all the time.

  6. I really want to try that Laughing Cow cream cheese spread on the pumpkin bread... Looks delish! I love all things pumpkin this time of year! My favorite Fall thing so far is pumpkin k-cups from Dunkin Donuts. A tasty way to start my morning!

  7. I want those socks! I just started training for a half marathon and I get the worst blisters! Thanks for sharing! :)

  8. I'm definitely going to have to pick up some of those laughing cow cream cheeses... Sounds tasty! My favorite things for October are the seasonal scented candles (and soaps, lotions... everything) from bath and body works. They smell amazing and get me excited for fall! And that long sleeved shirt is super cute!

  9. I really want to try that cream cheese - yum!

  10. Oooh, I really wanna try the go go squeez applesauce because the last time I ran a long race I used the gu crap and I got so sick during the run (so I've been blaming it on that ever since).

  11. I just ordered the Aquage off of amazon last week. I can't wait for it to be delivered! I have fine, flat hair too and I am really hoping this does the trick!

  12. I've hear so much about Aquage..I'm going to have to try it!

  13. I'm with Amy! What do you use to make your collages?
