It's October
And I like a lot of things


Bath and Body Works Autumn candle

If you put harbor the smells of Autumn, it would smell like this.  Hints of apple, cinnamon, pumpkin, and of course fall air.  I burn this candle quite often to make my house smell AMAZING.  I get so many compliments! :]

Way Better Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips

I was looking for a healthy alternative to potato chips and when I saw this in Target I put it in my shopping cart immediately.  The ingredients include: Organic sweet potatoes, corn, sprouted chia seeds, quinoa, and sea salt.  That's it.  Amazing!  Gluten free and full of vitamins and minerals.  
Tasty AND healthy-best of both worlds!

This next one is a bit lame but

I just picked these bad boys up because I was looking for multiple colors to organize my notes and To-Do list.  There are so many colors included, from black to hot pink, there's a color for you! (They last a long time too!)

What is something you've been loving?

I need to get this off my chest:
Honestly, how can you not love dogs?

They just bring so much joy into my life, with their little wagging tails, wet tongues, and boundless energy.
They truly are the best companions, and I often find myself having a very one-sided conversation with them(but that's okay because they make for good listeners)
A lot of the times, I would much rather prefer the company of a dog than a person.

I miss having a dog around now that I'm at college.
Whenever we go into town and I see someone with a dog, I have to physically restrain myself to not pet the dog/steal the dog.
I also get a bit sad when I see people with their dogs because it makes me miss my dog, who passed about 2 months from cancer.  (What I would do to have her back...)

RIP Libby.
Miss you everyday <3

(That was me releasing all my built up stress)

Sometimes life is just too much to handle and the stress makes you go insane.
This week has been one of those weeks.

Between piles upon piles of school work, working, friends, family, and deciding what I want to do with my life (NBD...), I find myself staying up late at night, unable to think about anything but these things.  I'm getting stretched thin.  
I think, no I NEED a vacation ASAP.

What are some good ways to deal with stress?
Any ideas would be wonderful!

Don't worry about me though, I'm fine.  
Everyone gets stressed at points in their life.
Just remember that it will get better...
Or at least that's what I keep telling myself...

So as a college student, I don't really have that much money to go around buying spontaneous/ unnecessary items, but I think it's important to treat oneself from time to time.(or at least that's what I tell myself to justify the purchases...)
So that's what I decided to do: SPLURGE.

Here are some my recent splurges that I may or may not regret buying in the near future:

Lovely color and makes my skin glow.  I think it was a good purchase!

I needed new headphones and I thought instead of buying more pairs of my regular $19.99 in-ear headphones, I would maybe just splurge on getting a really nice pair that will last me a long time.  So far so good!

Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner
Because I have curly hair, I find it very difficult to find products that actually work on my hair.  I have heard so many good things about the Ouidad product line and decided to give it a chance.  It's quite pricey for the size of the bottle, but I think it's been well worth it.

Have you splurged on something recently?
Let me know!

Changing of the Seasons

Looking out the window, it is currently very overcast, and starting to drizzle.  
(I heard that it might actually snow tonight... :'[ )
I am currently sat in my living room with a sweatshirt, sweatpants, fuzzy socks, and 2 blankets and I am STILL cold.
This is just making me realize that while summer is officially over, winter is almost on the horizon.
I want to have an Autumn- with the colorful trees, pumpkin spice drinks, warm clothes, pumpkin carving, apple cinnamon smells, Halloween!!

As much as I can't wait for Christmas, I am just not ready for the long, horrible winter that I know is fast approaching.

I guess I'll have to enjoy what little Autumn we are getting now,
but first I'm going to make a chai tea( YUM 😋)

What is your favorite thing about Autumn?
