October Obsessions

/

Obsession — An idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.”
-Oxford’s English Dictionary

This semester is going by so quickly, I can’t believe it.  I can’t believe next week is my last full week of classes for the semester and that finals start in a little less than a month.  Read on to see what I really enjoyed during the month of October.

1.  Simply Nailogical.  The first video of Cristine’s that I ever watched was Polish Mountain back a few years ago, but I never got into her videos until quite recently.  I think it’s really interesting that YouTube is just her side gig and that she still has six million followers.  I really enjoy her content, including her nail art videos and her other non-nail art videos.  If you need some mindless but funny entertainment, check out her videos.

2.  Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Dolly.  I got a sample of this from Ulta and after using it for a few months, I had to buy the full size because the sample is almost gone.  The color of this lip gloss adds the perfect color to the natural color of my lips and smells amazing.  It is a plumping gloss but it’s not so plumping that it hurts your lips; it’s more like the tingling sensation from Burt’s Bees.  I really recommend this as it’s a universal color and just complements natural lip colors.

3.  Brach’s Naturals Candy Corn.  Okay, so I know candy corn is one of the most hated Halloween candies, but I actually really enjoy it, especially this natural version of them.  To make this brand of candy corn natural, there’s honey in them that gives them the perfect amount of sweetness.  I actually could eat more than a handful of these without getting sick.  Since Halloween is over, stores don’t really sell these anymore but look out for these next year when Halloween candy comes out.

4.  The Blairette (@thedewedit’s IGTV show).  I mentioned how I really enjoy listening to Kaitlyn Bristowe’s podcast in one of my previous monthly obsessions posts.  Well, she started her own version of The Bachelorette on Instagram with the winner of her contest to podcast with her.  Basically it’s like a low budget version of The Bachelorette, but it’s pretty cool watching the dates on her IGTV show and listening to her updates on the podcast.  And plus, it’s like a three minute video that can be watched super quickly. 

5.  Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant in Charcoal and .  I got this in my September Target Beauty Box.  I never really used natural deodorant before so I wasn’t sure if it would work well.  And surprise to me, it works as well as the other deodorants I’ve used like Secret and Dove.  The smell of this deodorant is really fresh and keeps me dry and good smelling for the whole day.  And it’s around the same price as other deodorants so it won’t break the bank.  I’ve actually purchased a full size of it so you know I actually like it.

6 (BONUS).  kate spade new york cameron street lucie.  Oh my goodness, I cannot believe I actually own this bag now.  I first picked out this bag because Lexis had this on their website and I was saving up my points for it.  However, Lexis changed up their inventory and this bag wasn’t on their website anymore but a few department stores still had it.  With a Kate Spade friends and family discount and $200 in gift cards, I got this bag for $21 with tax.  I had some shipping issues through Nordstrom, but in the end I finally got my bag with Macy’s.  I am absolutely in love with this bag and am so glad I saved up my points for it.  It’s a light pink leather that has gold detailing and is super spacious.  I think it’s the perfect lawyer bag that adds a pop of color to any outfit and I’m so happy I purchased it!

What did you love this past month and what are you looking forward to in the next month as finals approach?
