Besides the crazy temperature changes (really Mother Nature), October has been an amazing month. And with Halloween right around the corner, November is in my sights. But before we get to the 1st, I want to fill you guys in on 5 favorite items that I have been loving this month. Items that I know you’ll love too!

- Target: Metal Recipe Box with Leaf Design
- H&M: Skeleton Sweatshirt
- Clinique: Chubby Stick Intense™ Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Plushest Punch
- Tarte: Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette
- BP: Studded Faux Leather Crossbody Bag – Black
Am I the only one that finds recipe boxes to be amazingly cute? Sure you can use them for recipes OR you can use them to keep all of your different lipsticks in (*cough*me*cough*). Either way, these boxes make for the best storage. I found this one in the Target dollar section (you know the one – that seasonal area when you first walk in the door), but lately I’ve been seeing them all over the place.
So if you’re anything like me, trying to find a costume for Halloween can be kind of stressful. I don’t know why, but my biggest fear is that all night people will ask me who I am. Thankfully H&M has come to our rescue! Pair this skeleton sweatshirt with some black jeans, black boots, and skeleton face makeup and you’ll be set. Best part? It only costs $10. Second best part? It glows in the dark! You can bet I’m going to be wearing this no matter what month it is.
Unfortunately, with winter comes chapped lips. And while I love matte lipsticks, it seems like a lot of the time they only add to the dryness. That’s where this Clinique lip colour balm helps! It manages to give you the lip color you want while helping prevent your lips from looking dry and cracked. If the price tag is a bit much, pick up your FREE list of 33 drugstore dupes. There’s definitely an item on there for this.
The holiday season is coming and that means a lot of traveling. I mean, October isn’t even part of the holiday season and I’ve already been hitting the road a ton. The number one thing is trying to pack light and this is the perfect eyeshadow for that. On one hand, it gives you the versatility you need in a palette. On the other hand, it manages to give you that without the bulk. You’ll easily fit this in your makeup bag!
Last but certainly not least is this fabulous purse. You guys, I feel so mature and professional in this purse. I love it. It has the timelessness that comes with a simple black bag, but the gold detail on the front and on the strap helps modernize it. If you do not have a black bag, please go out and get one. It goes with everything and will elevate any outfit.
