October Favorites

October wasn't a *great* month for me mentally and stressfully, so I thought it would be nice to reflect on things I did like the past 4 weeks. Here they are!

  1. Hot apple cider and apple cider donuts One of the things my friends and I did in Vermont was visit a pumpkin patch and the had amazing cider and donuts. I took a half dozen home and it was a really blissful 2 days of microwaved donut life.
  2. Wearing sweaters again Love pulling out my cold weather wardrobe. It's like having new clothes! Cozy ones!
  3. Being Boss Podcast Been listening to a few podcasts lately and this has been one of my favorites. Sometimes (ok a lot of times) I question my decision to be a self-employed person but Kathleen, Emily and their guests do a really good job of giving sound advice while also sharing questions and vulnerabilities lots of creatives have and it makes me feel less alone. GOOD STUFF.
  4. Wearing lipstick again! Orange and deep red have been my favorites. Right now I'm loving NYX's Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick and Topshop's LIPS in Beguiled.
  5. The Book of Life Movie Man oh man I think this movie is so underrated! It's so beautiful and sad and heartwarming and perfect for this time of year. I highly highly recommend it.
