October Favorites

It's November!? What? I just said I couldn't believe it was October....ugh! I'm not ready for November. I just had a little "OMG" moment when I flipped my calendar over and remembered Thanksgiving is not too far away. Geeze. This year has flown by so fast. 
One thing that makes me happy : Black Friday! hehe.

Okay, now for my favorites...

Hush, Hush-Crescendo-Silence
I am a book lover.
I'm just going to say it, I was checking out what Wal*Mart had to offer and I stumbled upon the book series "Hush, Hush" so I picked it up and read the back and decided to give it a go. The cover artwork is amazing, sometimes I do judge a book by it's cover, because honestly, I really just skimmed the back. lol. I didn't even know what the general idea of what it was about other than I saw an angel on the cover. I figured I would try the first book and if it was a fail, oh well. Normally, I don't buy books at full price unless it just calls to me, and this one did. 
Like I said, it's about a fallen angel and it's a love story geared towards young adults...I enjoyed it, and I'm 25, but I also like that kinda thing. Mushy lovey dovey, everything could go wrong but maybe it'll end up perfect. Swoon. Yep, that's me. 
I read the first one and had my husband pick the other two up the very next day! And read those just as fast. Silence actually just was released this October and one more book is on the way for 2012. 
Like I said, I don't normally buy books at full price and my local discount store had this whole series for $3.99 each! Ugh! Double ugh! and Triple ugh! 
I actually told my husband I loved those books so much I was tempted to buy them at the discount store and read them all over again, even though I already have the books! That's how much I LOVE them. 

Anywho, enough of writing a book on my favorite books. ;0)
Moving on....

I used Clinique's dramatically different moisturizing gel for October. I have combo skin, and I also have the normal version and a I mix the two sometimes. 

I have to throw some BBW in the mix...
I used Charmed life lotion constantly in Oct.

Physicians Formula's Organic Wear was my mascara of choice.

Almay nearly naked makeup was my foundation of choice, and this does feel really light weight. 

The Balm and the Beautiful palette was a staple, and I'm sure I'm going to love it every month to come because it has some awesome colors that are super pigmented. 

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this NARS blush palette! It is such an amazing deal. Love the brozer, love the highlight...love it. You can pick this up at Sephora and the F&F sale is still on until tomorrow, I think. 

I got this Justin Beiber Someday perfume sample when I picked up my NARS palette....and I'm like a teeny bopper, I know, but I actually like this perfume alot. *blushes* teehee. Maybe I just don't want to grow up? Or maybe this actually does smell really good? 
What do you think? lol. 

I love this Burt's Bees Super Glossy natural lip shine in Nectar Nude.
It smells like oranges and it's pretty moisturizing.
You can feel the little shimmery things on your lips sometimes, but I feel like it's exfoliating, so I kinda like that.

I love the smell of apples and I've been using the BBW pocket bac in Bat Bite. Good thing I have a backup.

For nails I've been drawn to brownish shades.
I wore this Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Time to Shine.

And NARS Bad Influence.
*For some reason this chips like crazy! I even use Seche Vite and it chips within hours-could be that I'm impatient when it comes to drying....?"
