Monthly Faves: Oct 2013

Hello loves, how's your week so far? I sure am enjoying mine. It's been heavy on me lately to slow down, relax a little. I thought a lot about what I could change to make this happen. I want to workout, it's important to me, makes me feel my best and its healthy for me. I was struggling with working all day then being at the gym a few nights a week, plus LifeGroup and not getting to see my hubby enough. He likes to run after work then goes to bed very early because his alarm goes off at 3:30 am. It was already weighing on me and then I read this, Stop Glorifying Busy. Great words! 

I decided to try early morning workouts at home this week so after work I can just come home and spend time with Dustin. We are only on day 3, but so far it's been fabulous! It's so nice to just come home, actually cook dinner and relax. Also, it's nice to have time to do stuff after work and not feel like my weekend is packed with chores! We'll see how it continues to work but I have a feeling it's going to stay this way… I may end up back where I was, but right now I just want to enjoy some me time and some cuddles with my love. 

Onto my October faves!

one-  Sally Hansen VitaSurge cuticle gel. My cuticles get so dry, I have a hard time keeping up with them. This stuff has become part of my before bed routine. You just dab some on each cuticle and massage it in. Smells like oranges too!

two- Lush Buffy Body Butter I talked about this in my Chicago shopping haul post, this is my 2nd bar. I use this in the shower about twice a week, it exfoliates and then moisturizes perfectly. I love getting to skip putting lotion on after my shower.

three- EOS Lip Balm This is Pomegranate Raspberry, but any flavor is good! I love the sphere shaped balm because you can get it all over your lips quickly. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but if you use this balm, you get me.

four- Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm in Big Apple. I got this in my Sept Ipsy bag and wasn't sure about the bright red when I saw it. It really just gives you the perfect tint to your lips, it's more of a pink-red. I've been loving just swiping this on after I apply my makeup in the mornings.

five- Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight. I have talked about how much I love the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, it's the BEST eye primer. There are a few different ones to pick from, this one has a light tan shimmer too it. It's actually like a matte shimmer, which I know doesn't make any sense but it is. It gives a nice glow under your shadow.

What's your favorite product been this month?


PS- I'm working on a giveaway for December, a Christmas gift to my followers. I really love Christmas for so many reasons, I'm getting excited for the holidays!

  1. Can you believe I've still never tried any of the EOS lip balms?! I'm so behind the times haha. Pomegranate Raspberry sounds delicious though and I may need to pick one up today!

  2. I just got EOS lip balm a few weeks ago and I'm already sold! I bought the strawberry flavor and it's so so good :) And I totally get what you mean about the sphere making for easy applications - ha!

  3. It works best for me to do my workout early in the morning too. Then we get to relax, cook dinner and spend some time together. :)

  5. I love the EOS lip balm. So moisturizing!
    I would love to get up and workout before going to work but that snooze button gets me every darn time! One of these days, I'll do it! Good for you for doing it! It's hard, but so worth it!
