MONTHLY FAVORITES SERIES~ Where I share with you all of the products I've been loving over the past month. Some will be new finds, products that I've rediscovered, or products that I've just randomly gravitated towards that month :D
OCTOBER FAVORITES! :
Favorite Healthy Foods:
I'd say 5 out of 7 mornings from mid October on, I have had shredded wheat with agave or honey drizzled on top. I've always loved shredded wheat, but this past month I just couldn't get enough of it. Some mornings, it's the only thing that got me out of bed ;)
I've been loving these sandwich thins! I'll usually have half of a sandwich thin to make toast in the morning, or as a low calorie snack. I'll either put Jam, PB and honey, or LF cream cheese on it. And I of course like using them for sandwiches. 1 roll is 100 calories. Way better then 180 calories for two slices of bread. Who just shaved 80 calories of their sandwich? I did.
I may have gone through one too many boxes of these granola bars this month. But they're just so good! For 140 calories they hold me over until lunch or dinner, and satisfy my sweet tooth. I like to keep one in my purse, in case I get hungry while I'm out and about. It's saved me from pulling into a drive through on several occasions. Who needs a quick burger when they have a yummy healthy treat in their purse?
I've never been a fan of canned soup, but in the beginning of October I saw these soups in the store, and I thought I'd give them a try. Since that day, they've been 50% of my lunches. Every time I run to the store, I always stock back up. My favorites are the Healthy Choice tortellini tomato soup, and Campbells mexican style chicken tortilla. Plus, both are all natural!
I bought this eyeshadow back in February, but for some reason never used it until this past month. It's a rich brown color, with a hint of plum... or burgundy? Whatever it is, it's gorgeous. I started using it as an eyeliner, and then I branched out and used it to create a smokey eye. I love how rich the color is, but still be subtle enough to wear with confidence. I think it's the perfect fall/winter eye shadow. I love the way it brings out the brown in my eyes, but I also think it would make blue eyes pop. LOVE.
|Urban Decay- Sin|
I've been wearing Urban Decay's Sin eyeshadow every single day during the month of October (and still;). It's a beautiful light pearly pink color. Most days I'll use it with the Mac Handwritten shadow. I just put the Sin shadow on the inner half of my eyelids, and handwritten on the outer half, smoking it out. (If you want a tutorial on this look, you can email, FB, or leave a comment to let me know:). On my more lazy days, I just pop this Sin shadow all over my lid, with a quick coating of mascara, and whola! No longer a hot mess ;)
I've been hearing all about the creamcup lipstick, so I finally decided to give it a try. It's just the perfect, light pink color, that goes with everything. I bought it in the beginning of October, and have worn it almost everyday since.
Favorite hair and skin care:
I'm just going to admit that I'm way too lazy to take off my makeup at night. So most nights I would just get in my jammies, brush my teeth, take my meds, and hit the sack, with a makeup filled face. I had tried makeup removing wipes a couple years ago, but they irritted my skin, and dried it out. I saw these wipes at target, and something about them just made me want to try the whole face wipes thing again. I'm glad I did, because I love these! They're gentle on my skin, but are still able to remove all of my makeup, the quick and easy way. Even my mascara! I use them every single night, and have definitely seen an improvement in my skin. I can't believe I used to go to bed with all that make up on!
|Aquage root lifting foam|
Pretty much ma' whole life I've been searching for the perfect root lifter. Root lifter is one of the top 3 products I can't live without. If I ever run out, without having a backup supply, I seriously get in a depressed funk until I pick some up again. Which is why I usually always have a back up supply. A life without volumized hair, is just not a life I want to live. The last time I went to get my hair cut, the lady used this on my hair, and I was blown away by the volume it gave my hair. Better yet, the volume lasted all. day. long. FINALLY I had found the root lifter of all root lifters! It foams up like a mouse, and gives your roots a very slight bit of texture, without it feeling yucky.

I had a rough week starting out. The Halloween candy finally got to me. By mid week I started to shape things up again, but it's only been over the past couple days that I've been doing my best. My goal for next week is 197.
