Five Things I've Loved October 2021

by - October 22, 2021


Happy Friday, loves. I do hope you've all had a wonderful week. I, for one, am looking forward to the weekend. So long as the weather cooperates, we'll finally be visiting the area's best (in my opinion, at least) pumpkin patch.

I can't believe there's only a week left in this month. The holidays will be here before you know it, and then poof! 2021 will be over.

This month has been kind of a mixed bag in terms of everything. There was a lot going on, and then there was a lot of catching up to do, and then I finally got to rest. There were some exciting moments, too, especially when it comes to finding some products to make life just a little bit better, and I'm sharing those with you today!

Five Things I've Loved This Month

Mellow Brow Powder Duo in Auburn - This is the perfect shade for my brows. Everything I've used before is either too light or too dark, and you can always tell I'm wearing it. This, however, blends so naturally and matches my natural shade, so my brows are fuller and more distinct but don't look obviously filled in. Another thing I love about Mellow is that all their products are Vegan!

Neutrogena Flawless Matte CC Cream - I've always liked the idea of a CC cream but they've never worked for me. Then, I saw an ad for this one, which is formulated with acne-prone skin in mind, and had to try it. I love that it has a matte finish, which leaves my skin looking like just my skin. It doesn't clog my pores or irritate any blemishes I might have, and it lasts all day. It comes in 34 shades. I use the lightest, Shell.

Monat Rejuvenique Oil - Did you guys know that I'm lactose intolerant? I'm so sensitive to dairy, that if I eat too much of it (because let's be honest, I'm not giving up cheese 100%) I get really bad breakouts. They're like a cross between a hive and a zit, painful and super itchy, and they can take up to a month to fully heal. I've been dealing with one of these breakouts recently and decided to put this so-called miracle oil with 100+ uses to the test, since people swear that it works on skin issues. Honestly, I've been blown away by the results. After the initial test run, my dairy breakout was less inflamed, less itchy, and noticeably smaller. After three uses, they're almost cleared up completely. Miracle oil, indeed. (If you'd like to try it, let me know, and I can get you a sample.)

Levi's Straight Leg Jeans - I randomly found these at Walmart for $23, and I've been wearing them almost non-stop. They are so soft and stretchy, and surprisingly the rips are right at my knees (that never happens because I'm so short). I got them in a size 6 but I'm fairly certain the 4 would have worked, as well.

Cross Logic Mobile Game - This game makes me think. You get a series of clues to figure out what matches up with what.
