October Favorite Things

Wow, it has been a minute since I've posted.  I thought I'd come back and do a quick "Favorite Things" post to kick off October.  Here are some things I've been loving:

1.) Costco Leggings

I've decided that I'm not going to wear real pants this fall or winter.  I mean, I'll throw on some jeans if I want to get fancy, but I'm going to live in leggings and long sweaters to cover my mom-butt.  These Costco leggings are awesome.  SUPER soft and very thick.  You don't get that see-thru problem when you bend over.  They come in grey, black and navy.

2.) Crazy Cups

Most K-Cup variety packs seriously blow.  You end up really enjoying about half, and the rest is decaf crap or some gross butter almond something or other that you don't really want.  These Crazy Cups have the best variety with flavors like "Bananas Foster Flambe," "Death by Chocolate," "Frosted Oatmeal Cookie."  They're all delicious without being too much. Buy It Here

3.) Simple Micellar Cleansing Water

I wash my face before bed, but when I wake up in the morning, I need something to clean up with really quick.  You just put a dab of this on a cotton ball, and takes any oil or grime off without drying your face out.  It doesn't leave the soapy residue that you get with a makeup wipe. Buy It Here

4.) Target Threshold Monogram Mug

How cute and fall-ish is this mug?  I'm also a sucker for anything monogrammed.  Target has a ton of tartan style mugs and dishcloths that are absolutely adorable.  Buy It Here

5.) Maybelline Fit Me Powder

Nothing is better than the MAC mineralize skin finish powder, but this is a close dupe.  It gives more full coverage, but has a matte and kind of velvety finish.  Does that make sense?  I like to put on concealer to hide blemishes and dark circles, then put this all over with a big powder brush and skip foundation.  It's great to brush all over when you're in a huge hurry.  Love it! Buy It Here

6.) @fuckjerry on Instagram

Excuse the French, but this Instagram account is absolutely hilarious.  It's kind of like @thefatjewish, but I think it's even funnier.

7.) Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

Yes, yes... I'm all about doing your own gel manicure.  (I have a tutorial here) BUT... for when you're really in a pinch, this polish is by FAR the next best thing.  If I have 2 minutes during one of Ellie's naps to do my nails, and I don't have time to drag out my light and all that, this is awesome.  My nails chip in about 5 minutes after regular polish, but this stays looking good for 4-6 days! Buy It Here

8.) @targetdoesitagain on Instagram

Holy cow.  Those of you who know me know that I'm slightly obsessed with Target.  These girls are AWESOME!  They post their favorite things from Target that you may have missed.  Clothing, food, home items.  Like I need another reason to go to Target, ha!

9.) Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk

I had to cool it on the dairy because it was hurting Ellie's tummy.  Now that she has gotten older and is eating solids now, I've been able to slowly add it back into my diet.  I don't, however, think I'll ever drink normal milk again.  To me, it tastes better than cow's milk and has all of the same health benefits.

So, that's it.  What are some things you're loving for the month of October?


  1. I love crazy cups as well. My favorite flavor is the pumpkin one right now. Also I am bummed you posted about the costco leggings this morning as we just went there last night!

  2. I prefer almond milk to cow's milk, as well! Love @fuckjerry's IG, always hysterical.

    I do what I want.

  3. give me ALL the almond milk! I actually really like hemp milk the best. Have you tried it?

  4. I just spent like 20 minutes reading @fuckjerry on instagram and I am DYING! Thank you for making my day :)

  5. I'm not partial to shopping at Walmart, but @whoawaitwalmart, they do similar posts about awesome finds. Some of my favorite clothes are from Walmart, just because I saw a pic on Instagram.

  6. I'm loving these things that you've shared! Definitely need some leggings for my 'mom butt' as well! Ha!

  7. Those K-Cup flavors sound amazing. That mug is super cute, my addiction is fierce. I need to stay away from the Target Instagram account or I will buy all the things!!

  8. These fit great. These work out leggings don't ride down at the waist or up at the crotch as you move, and they feel very silky and cool against the skin. I'm somewhat pear-shaped with 51" hips and a 38" waist, and the XXL fits great.

  9. One delicious option that can be utilized as a part of cooking and ordinary utilize is almond drain. salmon
