October Favorites 2017

Guys, I know you’ve all been wondering what I’ve been obsessed with lately… So, here it is!!Rose Water
I’ve talked about rose water on here previously, but I’m still super obsessed. Why did it take me so long to get on the rose water train?! I feel like a luxurious queen or something when I spray my face with rose water. I use it after I wash my face and before I moisturize.

Orange + Bergamot oil
Everyone and their mother is on the essential oil bandwagon! They can be used for cleaning, grooming, to promote health, OR to make your house smell good! These two essential oils smell great! I’ve been really into defusing them!

Pumpkins
Tis’ the season, right? This October we bought a selection of pumpkins and I’ve been obsessed with them. I LOVE the heirloom pink, gray, and green pumpkins the best! We bought our pumpkins from KC’s Produce and Glad Tidings Church.

Black Cat
I talked about this on instagram, but if you haven’t heard, Black was sick for a few weeks in August. He had 2 extended stays at our local vet’s office and one trip to the small animal emergency room in Gainesville. He got sick again in September, and after a week stay in the cat hospital, he ended up having surgery. Black Cat is home and recovering well! If you’re local and looking for a great vet, we highly recommend Dr. Hagler at Columbia Animal Hospital! He and his staff took such wonderful care of Black Cat!

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
This month’s book club pick has been great! Station Eleven follows 3 characters after a devastating flu plague hits America. It’s an interesting and easy read. I highly recommend it!

Good Christian Fun Podcast
This podcast is what I’ve been waiting for. Hosts, Kevin and Caroline along with a different guest each week, discuss various aspects of Christian pop culture. It’s super hilarious and only about 10% offensive. If you were a youth group queen like myself, I suggest you give this one a listen. I super suggest you listen to the Hell House episode because one of my favorite humans, MeLissa, was the guest!

Stranger Things Season 2
Whew, guys. Netflix is really kicking it out of the park with some of their original series. Ray and I both loved season 1,  season 2 did not disappoint! I feel like everyone in America has seen and loved Stranger Things, so I don’t think I need to explain the premise… but if you haven’t, give it a chance! It’s nostalgic, smart, funny, a little scary, and has a lot of heart.

Mindhunters
Mindhunters is a new netflix original that follows FBI agents in the 70’s on the path of profiling serial killers. Truthfully, this show started off a little slow and it didn’t follow the format I was expecting… but it was fascinating. The show is based off the book of the same title authored real-life FBI agent, John Douglas.

October 2015 Favorites

October has flown by! We’ve had plans every weekend of October and it looks like it will stay that way through November and December. Here are a few of my favorites from October:
1 2
– Apple Cider – It’s apple cider season and I couldn’t be happier about it. My inlaws just brought us some apple cider from their recent trip to North Carolina. I can’t wait to try it!
– Popcorn (with a few reese’s pieces on top) – We watched the first hour of Scream this month, and I had to have popcorn. We don’t have a microwave, and sometimes cleaning the popcorn maker seems like torture, so we usually buy jiffy pop (a la Scream).
– Pears – It’s pear season and I can’t get enough of them!
– Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak dry shampoo – Historically, I’ve had bad luck with dry shampoo. This is my first time trying Not Your Mother’s and so far, so good!
– Sally Hansen’s Diamond basecoat – I finally bought another one of these a few weeks ago. For the past several months I’ve been using up basecoats that I don’t really love and don’t really work well. I’m finally back to my tried and true!
– Size Matters by Essie – A fall essential!
– Peppermint Essential Oil – I’ve had a few headaches this month and I’ve used peppermint oil on the back of my neck and my temples to aid in alleviating pain. Ray has also used it under his nose to help with his nighttime stuffiness.
– Lemon Essential Oil – I’ve been using lemon oil to clean and to freshen my sink. Not to mention, it smells amazing!
*Not Pictured*
– My birthday – I turned 30 in October. 3-0. Thanks to all my friends and family who celebrated with me!
– Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival – I don’t want to say too much, as full post on the festival is coming Wednesday. Just know it was awesome and I loved it!
Scream Queens – Guys… just trust me. Best new show of the season!
