This Month's Favorites

Welcome to the second edition of This Month's Favorites, my monthly series covering all of my favorite things from the month.... A great opportunity to reflect on the good things and look forward to the new month!

Favorite Purchase

These over-the-knee boots by Steve Madden still available here. Mine are actually the 'taupe' (weird lighting - check out this post for truer color) and I went down 1/2 size. They're so good for the price! (Full outfit post here)

Favorite Fall Lipstick

MAC liner in 'whirl' + lipstick in 'velvet teddy'

Favorite Beauty Discovery

I had been struggling with my newly blonde hair turning brassy, but Clairol Shimmer Lights has kept my blonde cool and light! It is a little drying, so I've been using another conditioner after the Shimmer Lights one, and using the set only 3 out of every 4 washes. 

Favorite Outfit Post(s)

I couldn't pick between the two. Check out the full posts for outfit details here & here.

Favorite Healthy Recipe

This vegan-friendly smoothie bowl that's simple, nutritious, and tastes better than dessert.

Serving size: 1 bowl
 1 cup spinach
1 cup vanilla almond milk (I use the unsweetened)
1/2 frozen banana
1 1/2 cups frozen berries (you can use any berries, but I usually use a mixed bag)
1-2 teaspoons agave
*blend & pour into a bowl (will be thick). Then, simply top with whatever you'd like! I like fresh berries or slices of banana, chia seeds, granola or even chopped almonds.

Favorite Songs

On repeat these days! Not included but listening to an embarrassing amount: "Sorry" by Justin Bieber.

Favorite New (to me) Instagram to Follow

@scoutfashion - cutest little mother/daughter blogging duo. My dad has called me Scout most of my life (after Scout Finch in 'To Kill a Mockingbird') so that name is already special to me and this little girl will seriously steal your heart!

Favorite Moment

Pulling over in a parking lot and capturing this sunset with my best friend last weekend.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you're enjoying this series (find last month's here), and as always, please let me know if there are any topics you would like to see! Also, if you have an idea for a last minute Halloween costume for me, comment below or tweet me! ;)
