Here are my picks for the month of October if you're looking to spoil yourself a bit or even get a head start on some holiday shopping! 

HOME

My husband and I are home fragrance obsessed! This month we put Nest Fragrances to the test! :) We fell in love with their Liquidless Diffuser (Moroccan Amber Fragrance) and their Grapefruit scented candle. The Liquidless Diffuser comes with this gorgeous silver holder and scented sticks! Both are strong enough to fill an entire floor with their fragrance, but delicate enough to not overpower a room. It also doesn't hurt that they're gorgeous and fit in with any decor! 

 

STYLE

Nicole's Gallery and Boutique in Delray Beach, FL will be your one stop shop for clothing (men and women), home decor and fashion accessories. They just launched their website making it even easier for you to get your hands on their gorgeous styles! What I love the most however, is that they have exclusivity for some of the brands that they carry so you won't find them anywhere else in the the US! Stop by their website to take advantage of their sales and be prepared to start falling in love: www.nicolesgalleryandboutique.com

BODY

I've been using the Nivea Firming Body Oil for the past few weeks to try to firm up my post-partum body! It claims to help improve the feeling of firmer skin, even out the appearance of skin tone, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks! I love the feeling of the oil - it's not too greasy and absorbs really well and the fragrance is delicate and subtle. After 3 weeks of using it twice a day, I can say that I see an improvement already!!!! Time to stock up :) 

 

FACE

This month I switched up my skincare routine and tried the 3 little wonders by Ole Henriksen - a professional strength anti-aging AM/PM regimen. I loved that it only has 3 products - I can barely remember to wash my face, so a simple skincare routine is what I'm looking for! The daytime routine includes the truth serum collagen booster  along with a sheer transformation brightening moisturizer. The serum has a 5 source vitamin c complex to help with radiance and wrinkles (I loooove vitamin C in skincare) and the brightening moisturizer has licorice root and multi-fruit AHAs to help with dark spots and sun damage. The nighttime routine includes the invigorating night treatment - overnight resurfacer and the sheer transformation brightening moisturizer once again. The night treatment has a 12 source AHA complex that helps to smooth texture and fine lines while minimizing pores and evening skin tone. I've been using these products for 3.5 weeks and my skin feels softer, looks brighter, and I feel great with and without makeup. I definitely think I need to use it for a few more weeks to see the full benefits, but I am super impressed with the way my skin looks already and it gets bonus points for being a simple routine to integrate into my day!

 

HAIR

Post-partum hair sucks... and a bad hair day is often enough to ruin my whole day, so hair care is something I really invest time in searching for. I like things that are easy to use, won't break the bank and work! My fave find this month for my hair is by ALTERNA, and it's the Caviar Repair Instant Recovery Shampoo and Instant Recovery Conditioner. Both are free of Parabens, Synthetic Color, and Sulfates (so I can feel less guilty when Zane is trying to eat my hair lol). They smell devine and a little bit of each goes a long way (I've been using both for almost a month and have barely used 1/4 of the bottle). I have highlights in my hair so it can often feel dry and look dull if I don't find the right products, but this line has my hair looking and feeling great! I hope to try the rest of their product line soon!

 

Stay tuned for my November picks next month! If you have a product that you think I'll love, leave it in the comments below and I'll be sure to give it a try!
