Oct / Nov Favorites 2017

cruelty-free beauty + organization ideas 

If you guys remember I didn’t have a favorites for the month of October. So this time I wanted to combine November and October in one.

I buy most of these things on Amazon, because it’s just easier to order online. And if I have something specific in mind, I know Amazon will always have it. Whereas if I go to the store it might not be in stock, or they simply don’t sell it.

So as always, I have a little bit of everything. Beauty, home related, and entertainment. So let’s begin….

Natural Beauty
I recently tried out a new oil I had never used before. I finally got my first bottle of organic Argan oil. I did my own research and I found that this oil is great for all skin types. If you have acne prone skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, doesn’t matter. It’s also good for the hair, and nails. I apply a small amount with the pump it comes with, and I hydrate my face before makeup application. It leaves my skin soft and well moisturized. I also apply it to the ends of my hair. This specific oil is cold-pressed, and imported from Morocco.

Home Organization
I love organizing! I love finding new ways to make my life more organized, and minimalist…

One of the products I want to share are my new drawer dividers. These in particular are adjustable, and comes in a pack of two. You can find them in different colors, but I went with white because my dresser from Ikea is white. I placed the two dividers in one of my drawers to separate my: socks, bras / waist trainers, and undies.

A lot of people use this as a key organizer, but me looking for a new way to hang my measuring spoons, I bought it with that in mind. I think it looks perfect, and now my measuring spoons are available for easy access. You can also use this key rack to hang your jewelry pieces.

I have a small closet, and I was looking for a nice way to organize my flats and sandals. I searched, and searched and I couldn’t find anything that I liked. Until it occurred to me that I could use a mug storage box for my shoes! It’s the perfect solution, and now my flats look like if they’re waiting for me to wear them, haha! They have different sizes available depending on your shoe size.

I was looking for something nice for my cat Mishi to eat from. I wanted to transition from her regular plastic plate, to a glass bowl. It was hard to pick just one because I found a few that I liked, but I chose this modern cat plate from Catit Style 2-Bowl Glass Diner for Pets. It’s cute, and she likes eating from her new bowl. The other ones I also liked were the 4Claws Elevated cat feeder, and Internet’s Best Modern Pet Feeder White.

For such a long time I had been eyeing this vlogging camera. It was on Black Friday that I decided to buy it. I searched online for the best price, and I found it on eBay! My new vlogging camera is the Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II. You can flip the LCD screen for selfies, and it has the smooth skin effect. It’s also the perfect size camera for travel photography. This camera is popular among YouTube vloggers, plus it has positive reviews.

On Netflix I have really been enjoying Reign. This came out a few years ago, but until recently I started watching it. I love how they mix history, with modern details. With this series I’m learning a little about history. About who was who, and who reigned which country. While I work I also enjoy the Reign soundtrack playlist on YouTube.

What did you guys think? Did you have any favorites? I would love to know! You guys know how much I love using natural beauty options, and organizing my home. I hope this has given you some ideas.

    I wish that I was more organized. It’s so difficult to keep up with everything- maybe if I was organized I wouldn’t feel so frazzled.
