A list of all the things I loved in October! xo

FOOD

Perfect Bar Peanut Butter Cups. Say hello to my newest obsessed. I’ve been a huge huge fan of perfect bars (the chocolate chip peanut butter is the best!) and when I found out they had peanut butter cups? I just about died. These are so good!

Butternut Squash Skillet Shells. I’ve been having major cravings lately for butternut mac and cheese and this is by far my most favorite recipe.

ALDI Roasted Sweet Corn Popcorn. How did I not know about this before?! This is one of the best snacks ever. The flavor is incredible. It’s absolutely addictive and I wish it wasn’t limited edition.

MEDIA

my Crate Chef Box!! I had the honor of curating the fall Crate Chef box and I love it so much. The contents are fantastic and I’m so glad you guys are loving it!

Modern Love. I just mentioned this in my Tuesday things, but I loved this series on amazon so much. It was so feel-good and made me cry in every episode.

Twice in a Blue Moon. Almost finished with this book right now and I am loving it.

HOME

Garlic Zoom Garlic Chopper. We’ve had to chop so much garlic for my book photo shoots – and yes, I am the queen of my garlic press. But in trying a few different tools to chop a bit of garlic at once – this is the winner! It only does a clove or two at once, but it does it quickly. And it’s chopped super nicely.

Food52 GreenPan Oval Roasting Pan. I mentioned these in last month’s post, but I also finally got this oval roaster and I am DYING over it. First, it’s gorgeous. Second, it’s the perfect size. I’ve made a pork loin and an entire filet in it. Third, it washes beautifully and doesn’t stain. It cooks food perfectly. I cannot get enough.

MacKenzie-Childs Royal Check Baking Pan. I thought I loved the (black and white) courtly check pattern? Oh my gosh. I’m losing my mind over the royal check pattern in cookware! It is so gorgeous and I want every piece.

FASHION

B.P. lounge Tee. You know I’m obsessed with these halogen t-shirts, but I’ve found another one I like too! This is a boxier cut but I love it more for lounging when I don’t want to ruin my “fancy” halogen t. Ha!

Treasure & Bond V Neck Ribbed T. I also got a few of these long sleeved t-shirts and I love them, especially the olive green.

Michael Kors Skyler Knit Bootie. New favorite shoe alert! Okay, so I think these are kind of ugly. But they came in my trunk club, I ended up keeping them and have fallen madly in love. They are AMAZING. Super comfortable, but still have a wedge. I’ve worn them for a full day (like 10-12 hours), walked in the airport, everything. And they get a lot of compliments too!

J Crew Gemstone Sweater. You have to see this sweater in person – the photos online do nothing for it. It is SO gorgeous!! It’s one of the first times in a long time I can remember seeing something and *immediately* buying it. It’s so beautiful. J Crew often does 30 to 40% off so wait for that! I never buy their stuff at full price.
