Well, hello beautiful November! As amazing as October was with welcoming our sweet Baby Brooks, I am so ready to wave goodbye. It was a month of trials – ones that I don’t feel the need to share publicly – but the amount of stress at times was overwhelming for both my husband and I between life, family and business. It’s no surprise I ended the month sick due to all that we took on and deal with! However, I have SO many things happening behind the scenes to share here – major improvements, big ideas and feeling energized to kick things up a notch as we head into the most beautiful season and all of the holiday things. And today, I am sharing another round of Latest Finds and Obsessions for November. I hope you all are loving this series and find it helpful to discover new favorites for yourself as well!
Abercrombie & Fitch Ruffle Sweater. This time of year it’s all things layers, boots and of course, sweaters. I am in heaven, friends. And because my wardrobe is in serious need of some refresh I have been on the hunt for some great finds for the upcoming months. One of which is this ruffle sweater from Abercrombie & Fitch. I originally shared about this sweater with a larger round up of sweater and cardigan finds and pulled the trigger on it shortly after. It comes in six different colors and I went with Oatmeal. It fits beautifully and is so soft and light. The ruffles are not overwhelming, the sleeves are a longer length which I love and the ruffles add the perfect touch of femininity. The fit is also fantastic. For those of you trying to figure out the best size for you, I am wearing it in a medium and am 5’8 and wear between an 8 and a 10 depending on the brand. And to boot, it’s currently on clearance for only $34.80 – score!
Dollar Shave Club. This has been a major favorite of mine and my husband’s for several years now. I think we originally joined two and a half years ago. I never thought it would be come a serious love affair as it has. Before joining, I always complained about purchasing razors due to the expense and then I would get so fed up when I thought we had available ones at home when actually, we were out. And a girl doesn’t have time for hairy legs, ya know? So enter Dollar Shave Club. We went with the lowest option to try it out and I was extremely impressed with the quality of razor that came with it. We also paid an additional one-time fee of $5 so both my husband and I had our own razor handle.
Our subscription is set for every other month delivery and high quality razors arrive on our doorstep like magic. Each shipment is a pack of four razors and we pay for the “4X” plan and product which is $6 monthly – shipping is free. What is also great is that you can increase your subscription or put it on pause for no additional fee or penalty. Not to mention, their commercials are the best marketing in the history of marketing. All in all, I think what I love about it most is not only is it more cost efficient, but not having to think about it really is the cherry on top. Try it for yourself!
Milani Amore Matte Metallic Lip Crème. I came across this recently and wanted to give it a try after hearing good things about it from friends. You guys… I LOVE this lip creme! When I first put it on, I was a bit put off at how thin and wet it felt. However, give it 10 to 15 seconds to dry and the stuff does not come off! What’s even better is it looks and acts like a lip gloss so applying and reapplying is a breeze and you can do it without a mirror. The color I’m wearing below is ‘Adorable’ and it is one of the many shades that is just right for fall. Snag it in your favorite shade right here. And shout out to all of the lucky shots you get from using the only light source from a small window in your closet!
DW Home Pumpkin Spice Candle. Let me just say, not all pumpkin scented candles were created equal. I have a love affair with pumpkin scent this time of year when it comes to home fragrances and this is by far, the BEST one I have come across. I’m trying to talk the husband in to buying the stuff in bulk because it seems that every time I find THE BEST of something, it gets discontinued. Anyway, you can find it here on their website – unfortunately it is currently sold out – but if you are an Amazon shopper, catch it here.
Hope you enjoy and cheers to a new month!
