october favorites

Can you believe it's November?! The holiday season is almost here, which is crazy, I know, but also exciting! But before we get too ahead of ourselves, I thought I would share some of my favorites from last month.

October 2014 Favorites // A Style Caddy

Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette // I originally purchased the full-size version of this palette last November before returning it. I took a chance and purchase this mini palette, hoping I would love it more. All of the shadows are creamy and easily blendable, but the top row of shimmers don't apply well dry with a brush. Instead, they're pigmentation and color come off best when applied with your fingers or a wet eyeshadow brush.

Maybelline Matte Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in Divine Wine // I've posted about this lipstick on Instagram and have worn it so often that I'm afraid I might use it up in the next few months. It's the perfect fall lip color! It's a rich, deep red that applies so smoothly to the lips. Since it is a matte, this is long-lasting and does transfer a bit but not enough to reapply after every drink or meal.

L'Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara {Waterproof} // I love the original but wanted to try this more intense version when I saw it in stores. I'm glad I did because I think I might love it more! This one has doubled up on the plastic winged bristles unlike the first which has just one set. It adds length and volume and fans out the corners just enough.

NARS Blush in Sin // I am a huge fan of NARS products, especially their blushes. They're all so pigmented and this one is no exception. It's a pretty berry blush with just a hint of gold shimmer. It's another beautiful shade for the fall season.

Bath & Body Works Sweater Weather Candle // I discovered this candle last fall and couldn't wait for Bath & Body Works to start selling it again this year. It doesn't say there are any apple notes but that's what this reminds me off. It smells really fresh and like a crisp fall day. A definite must have in my opinion!

CLIF Bar in Pecan Pie // If you like pecan pie, then you need to try this! I was a little hesitant at first, but it tastes so similar. I'll typically eat half before a workout and the rest after. This is a limited holiday edition so if you want to try it, you need to get them soon!

How To Get Away With Murder // Oh my gosh, I am obsessed with this show! It's another one of Shonda Rhimes' Thursday dramas {I've fallen off the Grey's bandwagon and am not a fan of Scandal} and it's a really good one. I will say that I was originally intrigued because Dean Thomas from Harry Potter is one of the main characters {his name is Alfred Enoch in real life and he is a cutie}, but I became hooked after just five minutes. It's like Legally Blonde, but much, much, MUCH more serious. And while the students are helping their professor with cases, there's one that happens during the semester and somehow involves them all. It's so good, and you need to watch!

Those are my favorites from October. What have you been loving lately?

Happy Monday!
