InstaMonth for October 2019

Here's what shall be known as the last full month of the year where my Instagram doesn't look like Christmas basically threw up all over it! I'll be putting up our decor next weekend, so after that it is fair game. I'm not sure I love any backdrop more than a Christmas tree! Okay...maybe my beloved marble, but those are my top two, for sure! I won't go into full Christmas mode until my Thanksgiving, but it's hard not to get into the spirit here in Canada seeing as we have already celebrated every holiday before Christmas arrives. As a matter of fact, I'm listening to Lea Michele's new Christmas album as I type this post.

I'm not going all out with our decor this year, since we are supposed to be heading to my home in SC for the holidays! I can't very well not put up at least some of my smaller items and one of our trees, so that we have them out to enjoy for the duration of the next few weeks that we are here. Are you going all out this year or taking it easy during your holiday? Going home? Taking a vacation? It's insane that we're already on the holiday conversation, isn't it?! It feels like we were all ringing in the new year.

Here are a few pictures from my Instagram during October. It was a pretty laid back month, which I am more than okay with now that the holiday rush is upon us!

Blog of the Month for November 2019 - Cosmetic Proof

In October, Kellie from And I Get Dressed was my featured blogger (who just got engaged, if you want to throw a congratulations her way!). You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I've chosen Jayne from Cosmetic Proof. I have featured her before, but it was a few years ago. She's still blogging and if you missed that first feature, now is your opportunity to check out her blog! She focuses on skincare, makeup, and nails. If you love nail swatches, fun manis, and sheet masks galore, you're gonna love following Jayne. Feel free to let her know I sent you, if you stop by!

October 2019 Favorites

Whoa, is tomorrow really Halloween already? My gosh, October, you came and went fast! I didn't get around to doing a Five Friday Faves post in October, so I'll try to condense those favorites into the November edition later on.

Are you doing anything for Halloween? We are being homebodies this year. My husband is working from home, so that we can watch all of the Halloween shows and movies that we can fit in. And when I say movies, I mean like Monster House, Coraline, Halloweentown, etc. I don't enjoy true scares or gore in movies because...well, I like being able to sleep. Haha! I do love supernatural shows though, so we'll catch up on Ghost Hunters, Evil, and the like. Do you love watching ghost and supernatural shows like me? Let me know your favorites!

Here are my beauty favorites from October! Two of them are repeats from last month, if my memory serves me correctly. I haven't really bought too many new things and I just want to share what I'm truly loving. If that means showcasing the same items for multiple months, so be it. That tells you how much I love something, doesn't it? I hope so!

What's In My Makeup Bag

I haven't done one of these in a good long while, so I thought why not?! If you're interested in what I've been throwing into my everyday makeup bag lately, this is the post for you. This won't have reviews or swatches, but I will link to my posts where I have them provided when applicable. I've really been into shopping my stash and also getting a few products finished up. Not necessarily a Project Pan, but it is super satisfying to finish products. The ones that I am trying to finish are mostly repurchases or HG items! I might do a post later on about the products I've hit pan on or have finished up. It's been a long time since I've done that, as well.

Have you been shopping your stash recently or focusing on finishing more of what you have? I'd love to know what you've rediscovered or finished. Are they products that you would repurchase? Some of the items in this bag gets rotated weekly, but I'd say the concealers stay the same. I'm a "find something that works and stay with it" gal when it comes to concealers. My makeup bag is an old Cath Kidston design. I believe the shape is still offered, but this specific pattern isn't. On to the products!

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cleanser and Retinol Oil

I was pumped up to get the opportunity to test part of Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Repair line of products. I did put a short form review up on my Instagram a while back, but that was more of a first impressions type because it was due within two weeks of testing. However, this product does promise results in as little in one week. Below are my original reviews with any edits that I have thought about after trying these two products for a longer duration.

I was sent the Prep Cleanser and Retinol Oil. The line also carries a night moisturizer, eye moisturizer, serum, and a few others. Here are my thoughts on these two!
