Happy Sunday, friends! I can't believe it's already November! I think this may be my most favorite month. Whether it's preparing for Thanksgiving, finally getting perfect fall weather, celebrating family birthdays, or Christmas shopping, I always find myself loving November a little more each year!
Looking back on October (which FLEW by, by the way!!), I want to share a few of my favorite things that I used! Keep reading to see what I was loving last month!
These lil booties are SO cute! You may have seen them in my birthday post back in September, but I wore these almost every week last month! They go with literally any outfit, and they're so comfy. Plus, they're easy to pair with just about anything! I got mine on sale at Molly Green, but you can find them here for less than $40!
Next up are these two Colourpop products. The Flexitarian Highlighter and the No Filter Concealer have been part of my daily makeup routine since the day they came in the mail! I am seriously going to have a hard time switching to anything else because, not only are these seriously good products, they're both under $10 each! WHAT?! Find the highlight here, or the concealer here!
Next up are these Rodan + Fields products. A sweet friend of mine, Rebekah Waller, is an R+F Consultant and she sent me some products to try out! The ones I loved most were the Self Tanner, the Eye Cream, and the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.
The Self Tan is a foam and is super easy to apply yourself. It's buildable coverage and turns out super natural looking! I'm planning on using it again for a wedding next weekend!
The Eye Cream and the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste were both really nice products as well. I used the Eye Cream every night before bed and my eyes were significantly less puffy in the mornings! I also loved using the Micro-Dermabrasion paste on my hands and feet before using the Self-Tanner.
If you're thinking of trying out any of these, Rebekah is doing a deal where you get a FREE Full Size Essentials product when you purchase from rwaller.myrandf.com! If you'd like her email, send me a little message and I'll send it right over!
My next favorite thing is this beautiful rug!! I bought this back in the beginning of October and I've been obsessed with it ever since it came in! I've been wanting a super shaggy rug, so I bought this for our den upstairs and it has completely changed to whole room. Our space is so cozy now! If you're in need of a new rug, check out where I got this one!
Last up, my favorite Taco Soup recipe! In the Fall and Winter, I make this soup sooooo often. I don't know how I don't get tired of it! It's super easy and makes any cold day feel warmer. This recipe comes from High Heels and Grills, but here's the recipe I use:
-1 (15 oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
-1 (15 oz.) can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
-1 (14.5 oz.) can of petite diced tomatoes, drained
-1 (15 oz.) can of white shoepeg corn
-1 (12.5 oz.) can of chicken breast, drained
-1 (10.75 oz.) can of cream of chicken soup
-1 small can of diced green chiles
-1 (14 oz.) can of chicken broth
-Shredded Cheddar Cheese
-Drain, rinse, and put everything into a large pot. (Leave the sour cream and cheese out until the end)
-Cook on medium heat until hot. This usually takes mine about half an hour. You can also do this in your crockpot and simmer it on low for as long as you'd like!
-After it's hot, I like to pour mine into a bowl and add a dollop of sour cream and a handful of shredded cheese. Then I like to dip Tostito's Scoops in!
-Serve right away and enjoy!
