October Favorites.

A peek at everything I loved in October 2022!


Stok Pumpkin Cold Brew. I know this is a repeat but I just love it SO much. I don’t like regular Stok, so it always surprises me that I love it this much.

Waterloo Spiced Apple Seltzer. This is another delicious fall drink. So good on it’s own but also love it mixed with some apple cider and caramel vodka in my caramel apple crush. I found mine in store at Target!

Pumpkin Gooey Bars. These are one of my favorite pumpkin treats. So many flavors and textures and different enough from pumpkin cookies or pie.


Simple Modern 40oz Tumbler. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I love it more than my Stanley tumbler. It is sleeker, more attractive, slimmer, the lid screws in so much tighter and the straw doesn’t budge. It’s so good. It doesn’t leak at all (that was never a concern of mine for the Stanley) and just looks so much nicer.

Hotel Lobby New York Candle. This smells like the most delicious cologne – it’s very warm and fall-like but not sweet at all. Unfortunately it appears that it’s sold out now. I also LOVE their signature candle and holiday candle too!

Flameless Taper Candles. I love flameless candles but this is my first go at tapers. I’ve been using these since September and think they will look even better with Christmas decor!

Sauce bowl and ladle. I bought this a few months ago when shooting Thanksgiving content and it is my new favorite table piece. It is SO pretty on the table. Sure, great for gravy but also for homemade salad dressing or mini soup shooters!


Kaja Wink Stamp Liner. I have hooded eyelids and have always had a hard time with winged liner. This is literally a stamp that you touch to your skin once and boom, it’s done. I love it! I could have used this years ago, haha.

Tinted Lip Enhancement. I saw this on IG and bought it months ago – I love it. I’m on my second tube. It is super soft and moisturizing but also has a very light pink wash. This is one I always keep in my car and purse.

Kaja Moon Crystal Eye Pigment. This is my current one-swipe eye color. I love these. I use different versions all the time and once I finish, tend to try a new one. This one is really good. Also is a great base for shadow.


Neon pink Nike Air Max. Hello, I should probably buy five pairs of these so I can wear them for the next ten years? I love this air max shoe for comfort and then this color… instantly sold.

AllSaints Harper bootie. I talk about these every fall! And every Nordstrom sale. I got the version three years ago in the Nordstrom sale for half price and they are my most worn fall and winter boot. They are so comfortable and easy to walk in for being over three inches. I can walk and stand in these for hours, that is how comfortable they are.

Calia long puffer vest. I LOVE my short puffer vest and wear it 24/7 – seriously it’s like my fall/winter uniform for casual dress. I hated the long ones last year but some on people this year, loved it and got this one. I LOVE IT. It’s all the fun and coziness of the puffer without half of the bulk. It’s also great for Max’s hockey games and sitting on cold bleacher seats!


Scandalized. I’ll talk more about this in my October reads but I LOVED this one. It is steamy but not cringy. I loved the story so much and it was a great fast read.

Midnights by Taylor Swift. I like it even more than I thought I did at first. It’s so catchy.

Tell Me Lies on Hulu. I have a love/hate relationship with this show. No one is really likable (except for Evan and Bree) but I couldn’t wait to watch it every week. The finale end was shocking.


Crayola Scribble Scrubbies. Emilia got these for her birthday last year and loves them. They provide hours of entertainment for her. I just bought a new variety for her birthday next week.

Duplo bath blocks. We are huuuuge lego fans over here and I just found these last week. Such a good find! Jordan desperately needed some of his own (and new) bath toys and these were just the right thing.

Touch & Learn USA Map. I’ve mentioned how Max is super into geography. He has loved this. He grew out of it pretty fast because he just soaked up all the info and memorized it, but I think he would have loved it even more at age five.
