Hello friends!

I haven’t done a monthly favorites in a long time, but I’ve had quite a few things I’ve really enjoyed this month and wanted to share them with you, so I decided to do a favorites post!

My new friend Roo on Instagram (Go follow her! She does epic makeup looks and loves tea!) recommended Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea by Harney & Sons and I have been obsessed with it since it arrived. If you ever loved red hot candies as a kid (or if you are like me, I still love them) this tea is like drinking the candy in liquid form. I add a splash of almond milk and it’s just amazing.

This month I finally ordered some goodies from ColourPop and found two items that have made their way into my 5 minute/everyday face. Hanky Panky eyeshadow and Lumiere lip pencil. I love them both!

Our family is starting to explore Essential Oils for various reasons and after a TON of personal research, my favorite companies are Edens Garden and Plant Therapy. I will be doing a full post on which oils we are using and why, but my two favorite oils this month are Sunshine Spice and Good Night.

Sunshine Spice is a blend of the following oils:  Balsam, Camphor, Cinnamon Bark, Cinnamon Leaf, Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) and Sweet Orange. I add it to Fractionated Coconut Oil put in a perfume roller ball and have been wearing it as a perfume. It is a very uplifting and a great fall scent!

Good Night is a blend of Chamomile, Clary Sage, Copaiba, Lavender, Peru Balsam, Sandalwood, Sweet Marjoram and Ylang Ylang. We are a family of insomniacs. Liam has trouble sleeping (which is typical for some ASD kids) which throws my sleep schedule off as well. We blend this with Fractionated Coconut Oil in a roller ball and apply it to Liam’s feet and the back of his neck and it has made such a difference! I also use it on myself (I apply it to my feet and my wrists) and while it doesn’t help me fall asleep, I do feel it helps me to stay sleeping longer.

One of the nail polishes I have been obsessed with this month is Zoya’s Cinnamon. I am terrible with nail polish, so if I am taking the time to use it, I am really and truly obsessed. It’s really a perfect fall color.

Finally, I want to talk about Supernatural Season 11 because, HOLY CRAP!!

Supernatural Season 11

You’d think after 11 seasons, there wouldn’t be anything new that this show could do, but Supernatural is kicking butt and just churning out great television. Specifically, the recent episode Baby, which takes place from the Impala’s point of view. It has moved into one of my absolute favorite episodes. I don’t want to post spoilers because it’s a very new episode, but it was just an amazing episode full of brother moments.

Well, that’s about it for this favorites post, what have you been obsessed with this past month?

Thanks for reading!
