OCTOBER FAVORITES (cruelty-free beauty, and vegan)

Better late than never! I always do these type of posts on time, but I didn't publish a new video for two weeks. One of my goals this year was to make a favorite's video each month, so I really didn't want to miss my October favorites post...

I had three beauty favorites for October. If you're a follower of mine you would know that I was hosting a giveaway a few weeks ago. At the same time, I participated in a giveaway of another YouTuber. I was so happy for the person that won my giveaway, and at the same time I had been announced I won a giveaway! I won the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette! Up to this day I didn't own any of the Urban Decay makeup palettes. I like that Urban Decay is a cruelty-free brand, and the colors of the Naked Basics palette are so wearable. I have really been loving 'Faint' and 'Naked 2' shades.

The other beauty item I have been loving is the Bobbi Brown Face Base. A few videos ago I told you guys about joining Influenster to receive free beauty products in exchange of reviews. One of those free products I received is Bobbi Frown Face Base, and I have been loving it! I use it at night time after I take a shower and I know my face is clean, or in the morning before makeup application. The Bobbi Brown Face Base truly leaves the skin so soft. I feel like if I have baby face after I apply it, and even my boyfriend loves it when I apply it on his skin. It absorbs well into the skin, and leaves a soft texture.

The last beauty item that I love so much is the Godefroy Eyebrow Tint. I had already made a tutorial on how I use eyebrow tint but I don't think I ever talked about it in a favorites video. I love applying henna on my eyebrows because the tint will last a couple of weeks, which saves me time in the morning when I'm getting ready. I don't have to worry about filling my eyebrows, and make up time is so much quick for me. Plus, it's cheaper and fun to do at home, than going to a salon.

I love healthy snacks! Something I recently came upon is the Alter Eco Dark Quinoa Organic Chocolate. So, so good! Not only is so healthy, but it has beneficial ingredients. This is an organic, vegan chocolate. It has cacao beans, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, quinoa, and vanilla beans. A few simple ingredients. This organic chocolate is so yummy, and has a light crispy crunch.

Another healthy snack are fava beans! The fava beans that I have been eating are from Kala Beans Snack. I stumbled upon this on a recent visit to Marshall's. I saw them on the sale section, and decided to try them. I wasn't expecting much about them, but oh my goodness! I'm obsessed with these! I want to be eating them all the time because they are so good. I got the flavors 'Simply Peppered', and 'Tropical Curry', but I definitely like more Simply Peppered. The Simply Peppered fava beans has Himalayan pink salt which is so healthy, and black pepper. Sadly they don't have them available on Amazon yet to buy them again, and again.

One documentary that we got to see is Cooked. Cooked is available on Netflix and has four episodes: Fire, water, air, and earth. Cooked was a movie in my goals to finish watching. We don't always watch movies, but Cooked was great to see. I learned about gluten, bread, and flour. How we may think certain foods are bad for us, but in reality it all depends how it was made, and the ingredients it has. Every educational, and I would recommend it.

I really have been liking all these October favorites! What were your favorites for October? I would love to know! Thanks for passing by as always, and until next time!
