Are you with me on, “OMG THANKSGIVING IS ALMOST HERE!”? Yes, I know, it’s just a few weeks away and my appetite is already prepping for the olympic-style eating I am going to partake in. Another great day coming up… is my birthday! While I will not be disclosing my age (a lady never tells), I am putting together a list of things I want to try and buy by November’s end. This month is absolutely going to rock!
Here are 5 things you should definitely try this month, with me:
1. FIND A HAUTE HAT
I am currently in the market for a new awesome fedora. I own a really cute one, but fear I have worn it to death. However, I would rather one with a larger brim like this one on Red Reiding Hood.
2. BUY NEW CRYSTALS
I absolutely love collecting crystals and have been doing so for four years now. I buy small stones for meditative healing and use the larger stones for decoration. When I saw these gorgeous green geodes from Erin Fetherston’s home I knew I needed to add a pair to my collection.
3. CROWN MYSELF IN BRAIDS
Finally, my hair has grown long enough to actually do something with. After having a scissor happy spring, my locks have now fully grown to reach my shoulders. That excites me because I get to try messy milk braids similar to Chloë Grace Moretz.
4. TRY A NEW SMOKEY EFFECT
Since my birthday is just around the corner I have been searching for new makeup trends to try. I am lucky enough to have a cousin who is a makeup artist and willing to help me put everything together. Finding the perfect look was no easy feat, but I stumbled upon this image on Pinterest and loved the smokey shadow below the lids.
5. DIY AUTUMN COCKTAIL
Fall is the season, cool is the weather, and Honestly Yum shows us how to do it right this autumn. Their Autumn Spiced Apple Brandy Cocktail is replete with apple chips. I just know my favorite part of making my own cocktail at home will be eating them after!
