5 Favorites: October Edition

Friday, October 25, 2013

October. This month has been especially crazy because I have begun working as a barista in a bakery. When I first accepted the job I had no idea I was going to be a barista, I had figured I would be in the back kitchen decorating cookies or delivering orders. My first day of work was quite a surprise, but so far, I have enjoyed it.
 The customers always keep work interesting.
And of course, since it is October, Halloween is just around the corner! This year I'm excited for the holiday because:
a. I love costumes
b. I get to volunteer with a great organization to hand out candy to kids while they trick-or-treat at the local zoo
My mom also sent me a care package that consisted of a trick-or-treating Halloween cat bag full of KitKat bars, a candy bowl and chicken broth (priorities! Thanks, Mom).

This Mahogany Teakwood candle from Bath & Body Works has a wonderfully fresh scent. It could definitely be considered a more "manly" candle scent because it does have a bit of a cologne-like smell,  but it is very subtle and not overpowering. I would recommend it to those whose significant other turns up their nose at sweeter candle scents like BBW's Pumpkin Caramel Latte. This mini candle costs $4.50, however right now BBW is having a 3 for $10 sale!

Maybelline Lasting Drama by EyeStudio Gel Eyeliner, Charcoal 954
Maybelline Lasting Drama by EyeStudio eyeliner. A while back I had heard Lisa Eldridge mention this product in one of her tutorials, so I decided to pick it up and test it out. I grabbed the color charcoal, put it in my makeup drawer and forgot about it. However, I have started working as a barista and noticed that my Rimmel and Urban Decay eyeliners were not staying put. In an attempt to avoid looking like a zombie in a caffeine induced trance after work I applied this eyeliner and crossed my fingers in hoped that it would be able to withstand the steam from all of the various machines and coffee creating gadgets. It stayed put for the whole day. I plan on purchasing this product in blackest black soon.

Enchiladas Bandera from Hilah Cooking. I've made these twice this month and they are wonderful, but actually, anything from Hilah Cooking is great!


Garden in a bag. I love my garden in a bag. It is cute and quite practical for apartment living. I've been growing this one for about little over a month. Just a few sprouts have begun to reach the top edge of the bag.


Jinx. As some of you may know by now, I really enjoy playing video games of all sorts. Jinx is the newest champion from from the game League of Legends. I love her crazy personality and she is a fun champion to play. If you have never played League of Legends, and have copious amounts of free time, the game is free to download.
