How’s your October going? I’m really sad Halloween is cancelled this year but I’ve decorated every surface of our house (you might have seen some of it on my Insa-stories! Click on over to my profile some of it is saved there!) anyway even if no one will see it! Trick or Treat has been cancelled here so, yeah, that sucks but it’s safer this way especially for kids. If I had children I’d definitely buy them a big old bag of candy and call it a day as right now having them go from house to house seems dangerous! I saw someone on Tiktok create a really cute Easter Egg Hunt-like experience for their kids. They basically took candy, wrapped it in white tissue paper to form a ghost, and hid them around the house for their kids to find. Seems like a good idea and a safe one at that.
It’s a new month filled with many loves and a few hates.
Wanna know what I’m loving right now?
We saved up a bunch of the The Magnus Archives Summer through September to play through the weekdays in October. It was probably one of the best things we did because The Magnus Archives just hits different in October doesn’t it? Every night we light a fire, grab snacks, and sit snuggled under a blanket on the couch as we stream an episode. It was hard not listening to it for several weeks but I’m glad we waited as this is one of the highlights of my day during the week! We both have busy, stressful jobs and it’s nice just to sit down together to enjoy a show we both adore.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Touch Hand Sanitizer Spray is back in stock praise the gods! I didn’t think I’d ever see this stuff again! It felt like it was created for a charity and that it might never come back but here it is again! It smells AMAZING! Just like tropical cake! Who doesn’t want great smelling hands in the middle of a pandemic?
The best $200 I spent today would have to be on the Kilian Discovery Mini Set. $195 + eight 0.25 oz perfumes Killian Perfumes=Pure Joy! Mark my words this sells out SUPER fast during the Sephora Holiday Savings Event. This is a killer deal. I snagged it because it’s an amazing deal! I am a huge fan of Killian fragrances just not the prices! There’s a few scents here I haven’t tried personally and I’m looking forward to doing so. This also includes the legendary, amazing, gorgeous, super gourmand Love, Don‘t Be Shy (my signature scent). I can’t wait until this arrives!
I placed an order for the new Mineralist Lipstick Vault because it’s 25% with free shipping (coupon code STOCKUP) but didn’t get it yet. My friend on the other hand got his! No idea HOW!? That was super fast shipping! We Facetimed Sunday night and he was showing me some of the shades and swatches and yup, I’m glad I got this one. Totally loving Bare Minerals for putting this together at such a great deal!
I sort of got tired of watching people dribble The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution down their faces so I decided I needed to try it for myself. It’s actually created for congestion but also, it’s a great one for brightening skin and evening the texture of it. So far, I’m loving it. It does sting a little so pay proper attention to how long you leave it on. I noticed that my skin looks brighter and more even after using it!
The accent, oh god the accent, the makeup, the genuine excitement about makeup and beauty, Mikayla is my Tiktok crush and now she’s on Instagram too! Do you follow her?
Ok, hated Bly Manor. Can I have the hours I wasted on this back? But I realized what I was getting into when I started it as Hill House was the same! It’s just so much buildup and such an anticlimactic end. I did love Oliver Jackson-Cohen! By the way, did you realize that was Henry Thomas from E.T.? How did I watch two seasons of this show/series/mini series and not realize that was Elliot?
More hate for this week? I hate the fact that my Oliver Wood mini Lego figure is missing from my desk. It just up and vanished. The cat isn’t allowed in my home office so I can’t blame her….! I’m feeling distressed he’s gone. It’s not like my desk is disorganized either! I’m anally organized so it’s not like he’s under a pile of papers. He’s just gone. Disappeared. Not a cool way to start Monday!
What’s your love and hates lately?
Do share ’em!
