A roundup of my current favorite products, links, and things from around the web! Check out the list and find some new things to try for yourself.
Is a week into a new month too late to share favorites from last month?
Asking for a friend. 😉
Better late than never though, am I right?
And yet again, it’s been a whirlwind month. Why does time always move faster towards the end of the year or in this case, the end of the DECADE!?
Two months left in this whole decade, people…make it count!
I thought it would be fun to do a little recap of the month in the forms of Highs & Lows!
- I went through 3 interviews with company I had applied for a job with and they ended up going with another candidate. I was pretty frustrated and confused because after 3 interviews I thought my chances were good, but not everything in life always works out the way you plan. And I know this setback is just setting me up for something even better.
- Still lacking answers on the health issues (hormonal mostly…involving thyroid and adrenal function) I’ve been experiencing…basically making the past 2 years of my life very frustrating to the say the least. But I remain hopeful each month that my doctor will continue working for and with me to get the right tests approved by the insurance companies.
- Booked a trip to NYC for my 25th birthday…I am seeing The Office MUSICAL! OMG. Pumped. (Feel free to give me other NYC recommendations in the comments…no touristy stuff though, I’ve definitely exhausted all the popular things!)
- Doing more planning for a BIG life change next year.
- Started training with Olive…she’s learning so much and growing so fast!
- BOUGHT A CAR. Woo!
- Drove in said car to Rochester with my friend to see Chris D’elia perform live. He is THE BEST. I was rolling the whole time!
And now in my October Favorites…
Food for Life Cinnamon Raisin Bread | I’ve been loving this toasted with a smear of peanut butter!
Thunderbird Chocolate Superfood Bars | I think I shared these when they first came out this summer…but I finally restocked and remember how GOOD they are. And just like all the other Thunderbird Bars, they are vegan, gluten-free, made from all WHOLE FOODS, have no added sugar, and are paleo-friendly. The perfect healthy snack!
Wickedly Prime Spiced Mulberry Apple Trail Mix | this is literally the PERFECT fall snack!!
Check out more of my favorite foods and snacks in my amazon store!
Bangs Shoes | I recently became an Bangs Ambassador because I absolutely LOVE their shoes. Their shoes embody everything I love…outdoors, adventures, hiking, travel! And best of all, a portion of every sale goes towards helping a young entrepreneur achieve their business goals. As an entrepreneur myself, I FULLY support this.
Maybelline Coverstick | Real Talk: I’ve been struggling with acne lately, so concealer and foundation have become daily additions to my routine. But if you’re gone for a few hours, sometimes you need a touchup and the Maybelline Coverstick is perfect for that. It’s basically lipstick tube of skin colored coverup.
Dermablend Professionals Flawless Creator Concealer | Expensive…didn’t know the price before I bought it….but SO worth it. By far the best concealer I’ve ever used. It blends into your skin tone flawlessly and literally covers up any and all blemishes. I bought mine at Ulta!
Revlon Rose and Shine Lipstick | Revlon was on the Rise and Shine trend long before Kylie Jenner. 😉 This is my favorite lipstick for fall!
The Office Knitted Blanket | EVERYONE and their mom has been asking me where I got the Office knitted blanket I shared on my IG stories last month. You can find that HERE. It takes a while to ship so if you’re planning on buying it for gifts for the holiday season…order ASAP!!
64oz SimpleHuman Water Bottle | After going through 4 half gallon water bottles that all broke/cracked, I decided to invest in a metal SimpleHuman bottle and haven’t been disappointed since!
Homma Women’s High Waisted Shorts | High quality material like Lululemon for $15!!
The Joker | such a unique commentary on mental health and an absolutely amazing movie overall.
Yesterday | as a Beatles fan…a MUST see!
Modern Love – a new Amazon Prime Original about 8 different modern love stories…with an AMAZING cast, too many incredible actors/actresses to name! The hopeless romantic in me LOVES this.
Jack Ryan | WHY AM I SO LATE TO THIS GAME?! It’s John Krasinski so obviously I should love it. Fun fact: John was in the Buffalo area for 4 months over the summer filming A Quiet Place 2!
MindHunter | season 2 has FINALLY been released after 2 long years!
Black Mirror | newest season or any seasons…always thought provoking!
Insatiable | new episodes for the second season!
The Family | super interesting political documentary on a secret organization that allegedly plays a major role in US politics and world affairs!
Also…still watching Shameless!! Season 10 premiers this month…HAVE TO CATCH UP!!
The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco | not recent, but hosted by Seth Rogen and freaking hilarious!
The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber | another older roast hosted by Kevin Hart and ‘cry from laughing too hard’ funny!
Did Paul McCartney really die in 1966? | I LOVE Beatles conspiracy theories!
Laughing Matters by SoulPancake – The Funny Business of Being Sad…a short documentary on comedians and mental illness.
Hollywood Scoop Youtube Channel | not even all that into celebrity news but the hosts, Courtney and Maddison on this show are HILARIOUS!! Their back and forth banter makes it worth checking out.
To listen to
New Music Friday | If you follow me on IG, you know that a few months back I started a #NewMusicFriday TOP PICKS roundup every Friday on my stories. Basically, I listen to all the new releases so that YOU don’t have to. I share my top picks from all genres…usually about 5-10…and have also created a playlist where all the top picks are added every week. You can check that out here!
Office Ladies Podcast | Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey from The Office (Pam and Angela respectively), who are best friends in real life, started a podcast where they dissect an episode from The Office (they are going in order!) and share tons of insider details and fun facts from shooting the episode. As someone who has seen The Office 10+ times, I LOVE learning all these new details/secrets!
