October has come and gone! I hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween and a great post-Halloween candy-coma weekend.

A combination of old and new for this month’s beauty favorites:

Principessa dry shampoo in Notte Breeze – full review here.

Lush Eau Roma water –  In the middle of October, I started washing my face at night only (according to Kassie of Cloudy Apples healthy skin tip). In the mornings, I spray this on my face and I’m ready to go!

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Fanny – I freakin’ LOVE this lipstick and lip color. The perfect deep berry/pink color for my lips. Full review coming soon!

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil – full review here

NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Walkyrie  – This beautiful matte warm coral red color is the perfect nude for me. Full review coming soon!

ILIA concealer – A new discovery this month from my favorite lil’ beauty boutique in Kitsilano (holla Wishlist!) I have the shade ‘Ginseng’. Full review coming soon!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara – Love this mascara. Been loving it since summer. Full review coming soon!

As I’ve gotten older, my body has been changing. For a few months now, I haven’t been able to fit my jeans from 4-5 years ago. I walked into a Guess store on a whim and found a pair of amazing high-rise skinnies (similar one here)

– Listen

I’ve been loving Prince’s new album. You can stream it here if you have Spotify.

I’ve also been hooked on listening to Zella Day’s ‘Hypnotic’. There is something about this tune that just gets me.

– Live

My favorite person this month is not a person but an animal. My new kitten, Delima, is quickly becoming my best friend. The Boy and I have only had her for a little over 3 weeks but I feel a very strong connection to her already. She’s my sweet lil’ furbaby!
