Make Me Up Mia


Apologizing in advance for my poor excuse of a faves list this month. October was boring, but don't worry. I've been shopping a little extra lately and the VIB Sephora sale starts this week. I'm betting next month will be the beauty edition...

|| BEAUTY ||

I bought this last year and I recently rediscovered it. I learned about it from Makeup by TiffanyD and went for it. I love shadow sticks for during the week and this one is a great mauve taupe shade with a slight shimmer to it.

|| FOOD ||
Ok, so I know this is not healthy but sometimes I just want a little treat. I've been adding a splash to my coffee here and there and gosh it's delicious! 

|| MUSIC ||

Yep, I'm a T Swift fan for life so I couldn't wait to get this album. It definitely does not disappoint! 

Favorite songs on the album: Style, Wildest Dreams & Out of the Woods

I read these two posts recently and loved them, check them out if you're a fellow Taylor fan. 

*My friend Angela and I have also seen ALL the Taylor Swift tours, no plans to miss one!

If you saw this master bedroom post earlier this year, you'll know we have "Always kiss me goodnight" in a few places in our room. So when I saw this precious little puppy sign at TJ Maxx I had to have it! Pixie sleeps on a little pup bed in our room, this sign now lives above it. 

There are a few things I was loving in October, can't wait to see yours next! 

Tidbits from this week-

Are you a Taylor fan, if so, what are your faves on 1989?

  6. That puppy sign is TOO cute! I announced to my mom the other night that I want to see T. Swift in concert next year, and she about had a heart attack from laughing - I don't think she ever would've heard me say that! I have a very love/hate relationship with her, but I'm looking forward to finally getting the album this weekend so I can listen to it.

  7. That sign is too cute! Can't forget about the pup. I've been loving everything amethyst, lipstick, eye shadow, clothes, it's a perfect fall color. I'll have to try this!

  8. Ooh that eyeshadow stick looks SO up my alley..adding it to my VIB wishlist! That snickerdoodle creamer sounds like heaven. I don't drink coffee but I feel like even I would like a cup of coffee if it had that in it. I think I'm the only person in blogland that hasn't listened to T-Swift's new album yet!

  13. How cute is that sign? TJ Maxx always has the best finds! That eye shadow stick color looks gorgeous! I have to admit, I listened to Taylor Swifts first song (I think) Romeo & Juliet (is that even what it was called? haha) like 30000x & I have that album, but I've never really listened to any of her newer stuff.

  15. The woman at the Laura Mercier counter at Saks was telling me all about those caviar sticks! I love her shadows, so I'll have to try those sticks some time. That color is pretty too. Love Taylor and I'll be checking out her new album. I will also have to look for that Coffeemate!! I always drink my coffee black, but I like a treat once a year!! :-) Hope that you're having a great day so far too!

  18. Good to hear a positive review of the Snickerdoodle creamer. I've been wanting to try it for a treat but wasn't sure how it would taste.
    LOVE Taylor. She is just so awesome.

  19. Oh my gosh! I love that puppy "kiss me goodnight". How sweet is that?

    I haven't listened to TS's new album, but I've heard such great things. I feel like I need to download it.

    I wish I had some favorites from last month, but it was such a crazy month for me. Today must be a day for link-ups, though! There are so many happening right now. I'm hosting a fun one that will go throughout the month.

  20. I love those Laura Mercier caviar sticks! I have in a couple colors, but I'm loving the amethyst - I may need to add that to my holiday wish list :) And I'm a total Taylor Swift fan too and her new album definitely does not disappoint. I've also been loving her on The Voice as a mentor - she really seems to care about the contestants and helping them.
