I've got an array of favorites for you this month from makeup/skincare, to food, to vape juice, to books.  October was a fairly decent month for me.  Had some issues with my POHS, but that is to be expected.  I was veryyy busy for most of October which kept me from some of my favorite Halloween traditions.  That's nobody's fault but my own.  I had to take some time to create a concrete work schedule for myself to keep me from becoming too overwhelmed.

Before we know it, it's going to be Thanksgiving then Christmas.  I love this time of year and it seems to go by faster && faster every year... Ahh I can't think about all of that right now ahah.  Too much to do before Christmas!  Well grab a cup of tea or coffee, and let's check out my favorites!


I was sent this product for review and I fell in love!  I've been using this for about 2 months && I've seen a noticeable difference in my skin.  It's firmer, more even, and overall just healthier looking.  I've mentioned before that I don't really get impressed by skincare products, but this HAS impressed me.  I use it every single night during my nightly routine.  It's made such a huge difference in my skin.  I will definitely be purchasing this on my own when I run out... however, I don't know what that will be because this is a big bottle and it appears to last forever!  You can find SANO Vitamin C Serum on Amazon for under $20 && a free eye gel comes with it.


Aldi has these amazing bags of chopped dates.  I used them A LOT in october.  They're perfect to throw into a smoothie [you only need a little bit] for added sweetness.  I've made homemade granola with them, && even sprinkled them atop salads.  These chopped dates have been a perfect sweet tooth cure for me.


This month I have been enjoying Ecto Cooler by Mt Baker Vapor for my all day vape juice.  Ecto Cooler is a sweet and tangy citrus vape, with hints of orange, tangerine and sweet and sour candy.  It's been a nice fruity break from the pumpkin spice that I was vaping daily for awhile.


I've been using the NYX eyebrow kit for quite awhile now.  I really like the wax that comes with it.  The powder works great too.  I use my real techniques eyebrow brush for a flawless application.  A newer addition to my eyebrow routine is the Anastasia Dipbrow pomade.  I absolutely LOVE this stuff!  It can either make or break your look though.  There's a learning curve.  It's pretty potent stuff.  Once you get the hang of it, it's fantastic.  I use my Mirabella brow brush with it.


I was sent this book for review.  I usually decline offers from companies for book reviews.  I have a reading list a mile long, and I don't want to add to it by accepting books that I have no interest in.  I did accept this one though.  [I received the book for free, I do not receive payment for my review.]  I accepted this book because I have an obsession with all things "marketing".  Honest.  I used to want to go to school for marketing [before I realized I'm not programmed to participate in college lol].  I really enjoy learning the ins and outs of marketing.  It is useful knowledge for all facets of life.  This book, Kama Sense Marketing was very informative.  Taking theory from the Kama Sutra and using it in marketing.
According to the ancient Kama Sutra, "Love is where physical, emotional, and spiritual experiences meet for the purpose of strengthening relationships."  Isn't this what modern marketing is all about?  Love is, in fact, the very peak of emotional marketing. Putting this philosophy into practice is not only a revolutionary concept, but it's also a guaranteed platform of success.
I can't say that I agree with all points mentioned in this book, but I found Levy's theories fascinating.  I really enjoyed reading his approach.  I highly recommend the book if you're into marketing like I am.  At .99 cents, this book is a steal.  You don't often find educational or informative non-fiction that cheap.  It's a great read.

That's my favorites for October.  What were your favorites of October? <33
