October Favourites | Back to Basics

Hey Gorgeous Readers!

Life has been pretty tumultuous lately so my October favourites have really just been about getting back to basics. 

I've been wanting Frends headphones forever, but I haven't been able to justify a couple hundred dollars on headphones (sidenote have you seen the Dolce&Gabbana collection?!) and since I never lose my headphones I've just always used the ones that came with my first iPhone. However, I was at Target and decided to get the pink ones above because they were pink and only $5 (really.) and I think they're cute even if they're not rose gold. 

Since it's getting colder lately I've been needing more lotion. I've been reaching for my Bath&Body Works Strawberry and Vanilla souffle since I like this consistency more than their other lotions. It's not the most moisturizing for super dry skin, but until I find one this is my favourite. 

I started wearing my geeky glasses more often this past month too. I think they look super cute with my cozy sweaters. 

October was also my birthday month so I got my gift from Sephora which was a set of Nars satin lip pencils. I've been using Rikugien because it's a nice pink nude; the other in the set was a little dark for me.

Along with my nude lip colour I have gone back to my first Naked palette after using Naked3 more in the summer. The neutral colours are just really great for work which is where I spend the most time at lately.. 

I also had to switch my foundation to CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous because after struggling to find my shade of E.L.F the last two times I needed a new bottle I decided to change it up. I think Covergirl's is actually a nicer finish and smells better too so I'm glad I couldn't find my E.L.F shade now.

Along with birthday gifts, I got a bottle of Stress-Fix composition oil from Aveda and while I was in the store I decided to pick up the concentrate roller ball version of it too. Aroma therapy was desperately needed this month and the roller ball is great to keep in my bag. It has a more emotional effect than the blue oil which I also think is holy grail (if you have a migraine, blue oil will cure it in seconds).

Finally I have been wearing my wedge sneakers- like in my #OOTD last week- because I hadn't been all summer. They're just a bad idea if you're taking a large dog for a walk or need to get in and out of the house without letting them follow. I think they're also one of my new power pieces in my closet (I might share a list of my power pieces soon).

Stay Fabulous,
xoxo Aimee
