October Favorites

Most of the new purchases I made this month were not for myself, but for Victoria, who arrived a couple of weeks ago. Thus, I only have four October favorites.

Bath & Body Works Stress Relief Eucalyptus Tea Body Wash and Foam Bath: Relaxing soaks have saved me recently. I have been so on edge and stressed about everything. I shouldn't be stressed at all  this is an amazing time in our lives — but that's how I've felt at times. Relaxing after Orangetheory or when Victoria is falling asleep helps remind me that I have much to be grateful for and that I control nothing, so I should relax.

Bath & Body Works Flannel Candle: My second favorite is also from Bath and Body Works because I recently shopped at the store for the first time in years. I used to shop there every year but stopped when I become more of a minimalist. When my mother-in-law wanted to buy lotion recently, I stopped to smell some of the candles and remembered how much I liked them. I decided to get a few and Flannel is my favorite. Graham and I burn candles all the time anyway, and these last more than 25 hours each.

Lush Cup O'Coffee Mask: After months of wanting to try this, I finally bought the mask. I was using the Mask of Magnaminty, but my skin became more sensitive to the tingling of the mask. The coffee mask is a lot more gentle, and it smells delicious! I love the exfoliation of coffee.

Chicago Cubs: I had to throw this in because the team has created some of my favorite memories this month. It's been a blast to watch them make it to the World Series. I can't wait to see what happens!
