Sigh….I’m so sad to see October go. It’s one of my favorite months out of the year. For starters, it’s my birthday month. But not only that, by this time of year all of my favorite shows are back on television, and who doesn’t love Halloween?! I’m always down to enjoy a treat and I had my fair share. That said, I have some serious treats for you too! Check out my absolute favorite items of from October 2021.
October 2021 Must-Haves
I don’t really consider myself a tech buff. But when I took inventory of all my devices, I noticed that I have A LOT of Apple products! No lie, with exception of my work laptop (which I had no discretion over) all of my devices, are from Apple. I’m not ashamed of this at all, but keeping track of all my chargers got to be a bit annoying. So one day while watching random videos on TikTok, I discovered this wireless 3 in 1 charger and I just had to get it! I have to say that I am extremely pleased with this purchase. Now I can charge my iPhone, Apple Watch, and Airpods all in one place with no cords dangling all over the place. It’s neat and gives your space a clean and clear look which I absolutely love!
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve taken my skincare much more seriously. My goal is to have and maintain an effortless and healthy glow. My mom swears by Urban Skin Rx and she’s been using their products for years. When I saw these Clarifying Glycolic pads, I decided to give them a try. These gentle exfoliating pads are made up of 7.5% glycolic acid along with salicylic acid and lactic acid, things my acne-prone oily skin needs. You get 30 pads in each container, but I decided to stretch my dollars a bit and cut the pads in half so that I get 60 uses instead of 30.
Ladies, we all know how important it is to take care of our lady parts. I cringe at all the feminine washes that have a bunch of weird ingredients and toxins in them. And this can through your pH balance off which can lead to yeast city… which just isn’t cute! I’ve been using Honey Pot Sensitive feminine wash for some time now and no other wash will do. It’s cruelty-free, plant-based, and birthed by a BLACK WOMAN! So umm… Yes… check this out! They have a variety of washes and products all dedicated to feminine care.
Any Scandal fans here? Oliva Pope is one of my favorite female characters. Yes, I know… sis was a little messy but her style was A1! One thing that I always admired while watching the show was her beautiful fancy-looking wine glasses. I found these Hip Wine glasses at Crate and Barrel and I can finally get my Olivia Pope on! I was torn between these and the Camille Long Stem wine glasses (which are also super cute and are the actual Scandal wine glass) but they were a little TOO delicate for my house. Unfortunately, my boyfriend can be a bull in a china shop sometimes and I knew it would be a nightmare asking him to be careful with them (don’t tell him I told you that!). Nonetheless, the Hip wine glasses are a great alternative and a great addition to my house.
If you follow me on Instagramyou know that I am the ambassador for cute two-piece sets! With the colder months here, my love for them hasn’t faded. I found this 2-piece set on Amazon and had to have it! I love how it fits and how comfy it is. Even better, I can dress this up with heels or down with sneakers. There are a bunch of different styles and colors. Take your pick, but save some for me.
I was determined to find a new longline coat for fall. I wanted something that I could play with, and wear with different colors and looks that weren’t too plain. When I came across this Houndstooth Shacket from Missguided… I HAD TO HAVE IT! I love it and have gotten so many compliments whenever I wear it. If you’re looking for a new jacket to elevate your fall looks, check this one out.
