October Favorites


October has been a crazy month that came with a lot of changes. I had plenty to deal with, including moving out, getting refunds, traveling to tournaments, looking for jobs, etc. Even though it was busy, I still managed to have fun! Here are my favorites from last month!

Going Cruelty Free


While I have tried to be cruelty-free the past few years, I haven’t taken it as seriously as I need to.

October Bucket List


October is one of my favorite months of the year. It’s not as hot as summer and not as cold as winter, so the fall temperatures are just right! Plus, there’s a lot of excitement with Halloween right around the corner, which then leads to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. There are so many activities and events that are Halloween/fall-themed, such as pumpkin carving, haunted attractions, and hay rides. Half the time I don’t engage in as much as I should, so I want to participate in as many Halloween attractions as I can this year. I also need to load up on some scary movies, but I’m sure Netflix will help me out with that.
