Summer in Film

My boo and I recently had some film developed that included our trip to France last summer as well as some more local shots from this past summer.

I thought I’d give you a little look into our more recent summer’s adventures. Enjoy!

Do you ever shoot film?

October Favorites

October was a pamper heavy month for me. I bought a plush new bath robe, and took an excessive number of baths. I think it was the crisp air that made me constantly want to have a warm soak.

Halloween was also a large theme in October (obvi) as you’ll see in the rest of this favorites post.

Beauty Faves

Wizard Bubble Bar from LUSH

It’s no secret I love LUSH, and as you read above I also love baths. In my spirited, October-long Halloween celebration, I purchased all the LUSH Halloween products, and this little guy was my fave! Crumpled under running bath water, this bubble bar produced mystical amounts of beautifully scented bubbles creating the perfect bubble bath.

Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner from LUSH

After purchasing the Halloween products, I returned to LUSH once more in search of a way to have all the scent pleasures of my baths but in the shower. Ro’s Argan was the solution. I was obsessed after the first use of this truly lush body conditioner. It smells warm and soothing and leaves my post-shower skin moisturized and silky.

What I Ate Pad from Knock Knock

I’ve been making a conscious effort to eat less and this pad has helped immensely. A food log of any sort is a great tool because it helps you see what you’re actually shoving down your throat ever day. Then you can make the necessary adjustments to your diet. I especially like that this pad has a column for logging fluids. You’ve got to hydrate people!

“Gold Glitter Hello” Free iPhone Wallpaper from Wonder Forest

My phone’s wallpaper rarely gets changed because I’ll find an image I like, that looks right on my phone, and I stick with it. My computer, on the other hand, gets a new wallpaper quite frequently. It was while searching for autumnal desktop wallpapers that I stumbled upon this beauty. The gold glitter is quite festive and I love a good, simple “hello”. There are 3 more lovely fall inspired wallpapers available on Wonder Forest.

 

Fashion Faves

Stretch Knit Leggings from Forever 21

I’m a leggings babe, so trust me when I tell you these are fabulous. They’re not see-through, they don’t give you a muffin top because of the high waist, and they’re $7. I normally wear cotton leggings, but they show a lot of fuzz. Since I purchased an insane number of fuzzy sweaters recently, I needed a pair of spandex leggings that don’t hold onto as much fuzz. I’m going back for more!

Fuzzy Sweaters from Forever 21 and H&M

It started simply enough with the purchase of one light pink v-neck sweater, then escalated to the addition of 5 more fuzzy sweaters to my closet. They are so soft and comfy, and so easy to throw on over leggings, so I bought another one in mint. Then a waffle knit in both blue and cream. Then one in a leopard print that I simply had to have. Then finally, a cardigan in standard black. I’m wearing one as I write this. I’m a babe obsessed!

 

Food Faves

Brookside Dark Chocolate Açai with Bluberry Flavors

I ate two bags of these in October! They are a great treat for snack time and perfect for fighting off that after dinner sweet tooth. They come in two other flavors (Pomegranate and Goji & Raspberry) that are just as delish. You can tell how yummy these are because in a month where candy is king, I still reach for my Brookside!

Jones Halloween Blood Orange Soda

I’m a sucker for blood oranges so when I saw these I was too stoked. The fact that they were also a Halloween special edition put me over the moon. My boo managed to drink 3 of the 4 pack before I even knew it, so the last can was highly coveted and then highly enjoyed by this babe.

 

Personal Faves

Literature- Dracula by Bram Stoker

Sparked by an interest in vampire lore, and by recommendation from a brilliant friend, I made Dracula my Halloween read. And I couldn’t be happier that I did. I enjoyed ever minute spent reading this book. It is written as a series of diary/ journal entires, letters, and telegraphs which really bring you into the story on a personal level. Stoker set the bar for virtually all modern vampire stories, so, if you  haven’t already, I highly suggest you give Dracula a read.

TV/Film- Gone Girl

I didn’t get around to reading Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, so my opinion is solely based on the film. I don’t normally go for anything mystery or thriller, but I do love a good drama. Plus, I heard Ben Affleck goes full frontal so I was like, yea I’m deff going to see this one. Gone Girl absolutely had all the drama I was looking forward to. It had great characters played by even better actors, and the relationships between those characters were dynamic and honest. Not a smart choice for a date, but it did make for a lovely girls night.

What are some of your October favorites?
