October Favorites 2016

October Favorites 2016

Monthly Planner from Japan
This planner is an adorable monthly planner that I picked up while I was in Japan. It is super easy to quickly jot down things and its smaller than my Erin Condren. I still prefer my EC for everyday lists and more detailed stuff - but for quick notes and post-its this monthly is doing its job nicely.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
I have a couple other colors of this - but recently I picked up two new colors: Vintage and Tea & Cookies. Vintage has been my fall love for almost the whole month of October, while tea and cookies are an awesome pinky nude that is perfect for all those work things I've been doing. I love the formula on both and the formula is super comfy. They wear down a little weird though and definitely give you a lipstick ring around your mouth. But for me, who sits in an office all day. No biggie.

Maybelline Matte Lipstick - Touch of Spice (660)
I wore this lipstick last fall and picked it right back up again this fall. I love it. It's gorgeous on - if you've seen a recent selfie of me, this is probably what's been on my lips.

Eyeshadow Palette
So I go through this phase of wearing one pot cream eyeshadows all over the lid and then I switch it up and decide to go back to using a regular eyeshadow palette and doing a halo eye is almost every shade imaginable. Right now I'm on the halo eye trend and have been diving back into the staple Urban Decay Naked 1 palette and the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. I love them for both everyday and going out looks, although I 

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips
Because I've been obsessing over skincare and my nose has been a sticking point despite my best efforts. These nose strips are the best damn things for cleaning your nose pores. You just wash your face and while your nose is still wet you slap this thing onto your nose and wait like 15 mins. I wait until mine has hardened and pull it off. I've seen a definite improvement since I started using these.

Palladio Liquid Liner in Black Shimmer
I went back and forth between the Physicians Formula Eye Booster in Ultra Black and this liner for the past few months. I always seem to find myself defaulting back to this Palladio liquid liner. This liner is super black and it's got a thick felt tip. The only thing that irritates me is that the bottles ALWAYS seem to shear at the neck before you even get a chance to finish the product.

Nerdy Stuff:

Secret Hitler
Before you go off and judge me - this is a board game that is kind of like 'Werewolf' or 'Do You Worship Cthulhu?' Basically you are split into two teams 'Fascists' and 'Liberals' - the goal for the game is to pass the right amount of policies for whichever team you are on. It's a deceit party game and the liberals don't know who the other liberals are nor do they know who the fascists are. The fascists however, know who Hitler is and who the other fascists are and work to pass fascists policies and elect Hitler into power.

Halo 5: Guardians
This is the video game I find myself playing more and more of. I picked up Overwatch and have been playing it a bit - but it got kind of boring and I had never played the multiplayer for Halo 5. To be quite honest I am pretty terrible at this game - some days I'll be playing super awesome and others I'll be playing like poo. Either way - I still enjoy myself and its a nice time-waster when I'm waiting around for time to pass. It also brings me back to when I played a LOT of Halo with some good people.
