October Favorites

Hello friends!  I know we are already well into the month of November, but I still wanted to do a monthly favorites post for October.  As usual it was a busy month for us… full of firsts for Ruth Carlisle.  She went on her first hay ride, first pumpkin patch, first fall festival, first Halloween, etc., etc.  Meanwhile, I’ve discovered some fun new “favorites” this past month to share with you all.  Let’s get started!

oct favs


Stonyfield Yokids Yogurt Squeezers – This has been Ruth Carlisle’s favorite food to eat this month.  She loves the lemonade and blueberry flavors.  I’ve even started buying the regular cups and eating them myself.  To me they are delicious and not overly sweet, which I love.


Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector – This stuff is amazing.  Right now you can gift a gift set at Ulta for $20 with the liquid and powder versions of the shimmering skin perfecter.  They are just sample sizes but they will last you a while because you don’t have to use a lot of this stuff at all.  It’s so gorgeous and really gives you that lit from within look.  By far the best highlighters I’ve ever tried…and I’ve tried many! 


Redken Body Full Shampoo and Redken All Soft Conditioner – I’ve been LOVING this shampoo/conditioner combo this month!  The shampoo really gets my hair and scalp nice and clean giving me volume while the conditioner is very moisturizing for my dryer ends.  I recently got my hair cut and highlighted, thanks to my good friend Amber Vail, so I was in need of something color safe as well.  If you are ever in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area and need your hair done go see Amber!  She’s not only talented at doing hair, but she also takes her time figuring out just what you want done and executes!  Here is her Facebook page if you want to set up an appointment! 


La Vanilla Natural Deodorant – I’ve been using aluminum free deodorant for a while now and this is by far the best kind I’ve tried. It is a dry formula so it doesn’t leave you wet or sticky and the vanilla coconut fragrance is nice and subtle.  If you want to make the switch this is a great choice!  I picked mine up from Sephora.


Grove Square Chai Latte – I just discovered this brand of chai latte for my keurig and it’s delicious.  I usually get the Cafe Escape brand, but this one is about half the price and tastes almost just as good.  This is my favorite drink for this time of year…it’s like Christmas in a cup!:)  I found this brand at Walmart.

Bible Scripture of The Month 

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” -Romans 12:2


Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my October favorites.  I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!  God bless!

      You’re welcome Lauren…I’m pretty behind myself. Having some trouble getting motivated…hopefully I can get back into the swing of things;)

    Redken products were my favorite in cosmetology school. Actually, there a really good basic professional line in general. My favorite styling products are Satinwear 02 and Iron Silk 07. They’re lightweight and smell great!

      You’re so welcome! I really love this combo and it’s not too expensive. I got mine at Ulta. 🙂
