My calendar says it’s nearing the end of October, but my weather app hasn’t quite been agreeing. Even though I screamed of excitement the few days this month that brought brisk air and cooler temps, I’m not complaining too much about this unseasonably warm weather. After all, it doesn’t matter what Mother Nature is doing outside, as long as my fall candles are making my apartment smell like pumpkin and apples 🙂
Dressing this month has presented a bit of a challenge, but this Anthropolgie skirt is the perfect piece to tackle this seasonal confusion. It’s autumnal colors, longer length, and velvet make-up deem it fall-appropriate, while still allowing my legs to breathe when the temps and humidity have summer on the brain. I had too much fun twirling around Union Square with Olivia while we shot these photos 🙂
All that twirling must have left me giddy, because in addition to sharing my love for this skirt, I also thought it would be fun to share some of my other current favorites. From beauty and fitness products to books, read on to see what I’ve been loving lately.
FAVORITE BOOK: Big Little Lies
I admit that I am so behind on this one, but it’s too good not to share! I just finished the book and am now spending every free second recommending it to all of my family, friends, and coworkers who haven’t yet read it. Big Little Lies has everything—drama, suspense, humor, romance—and the best part? Turning the last page doesn’t mean the adventure is over: now it’s time to watch the TV series! If you haven’t read it yet, this book is a must add to your list!
FAVORITE PUMPKIN PRODUCT: June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque
Last Sunday, I decided to indulge in an evening of pumpkin-themed relaxation. With my Spiced Pumpkin Yankee Candle burning, I tried out the travel-size version of this June Jacobs face-mask and fell in love! I honestly wasn’t sure if I had just opened a skincare product or a can of pumpkin, but either way, the pumpkin-lover in me was rejoicing. This face-mask is gentle and calming, making it a wonderful addition to your relaxation nights this season.
FAVORITE HAIR PRODUCT: Good Virtues Co. Healthy Hair & Scalp Shampoo & Conditioner
Kiera, my best friend from high school, just got married this past weekend (ah!!). It was the most beautiful wedding I have ever witnessed, so of course, I sobbed in front of hundreds of people as Kiera’s Maid of Honor. Kiera is a hair-stylist and has been
nagging encouraging me to get my split-ends trimmed for months (which technically, should have been done months before!). As the amazing friend and dedicated stylist that she is, Kiera chopped off my terrible dead ends the night before her wedding (what a gal!), and now I have been trying my best to keep my hair as healthy as possible. I was sent these Good Virtues Co. products to review and after just one usage, become totally obsessed! Not only is the product fun and colorful, but it feels great to use in the shower, and leaves my hair smelling like I just stepped out of the salon all day long. Use my code TATMUR10 for 10% off all Good Virtues Co products on Amazon through the end of the year!
FAVORITE FITNESS PRODUCT: NextRelief Cooling Pain Relief Cream
If you know me at all, you know that I love to work out. Fitness is a huge part of my life and brings me so much joy, so many challenges, and an incredible amount of fulfillment. My morning workouts kick-start my day on a path of energy and endorphins, so I can’t have sore muscles stop me from missing a beat. NextRelief muscle cream has been a life-saver on those days when my previous workouts are putting my muscles through especially painful soreness. No pain, no gain is a mantra I live by, but I’m not going to say no to a product that relieves just a little of that pain from time to time 🙂
