I used say I hate October, and I used to name it second my worst month of the year (November has the crown). This year was different – I really liked this year’s October. Maybe it’s because I am a happy person or I have learned to enjoy the little things 🙂 Let me share some of my habits/discoveries with you.
#1 Everyday walk in the park
Oh well, it’s easy to say for a dog owner, but October is literally designed for the long walks. I am going to miss our morning fun in the park. Golden fall is the most beautiful period of the year.
Psss check out my golden fall post here.
#2 Aqua Aerobic
It took me a while, but I have finally found it – a perfect fall/winter sport alternative to my everyday run. Aqua aerobic is great! I really recommend it for the ladies trying to re-shape their silhouettes.
#3 Skinny Coffee Club
It works and it’s delicious. SCC contains green coffee beans, green coffee extract, spirulina and the whole variety of goods, which keep you full and full of energy for the whole day. Read more about it here ( you can also order from there). USE THE CODE CARMELATTE20 to get 20% off 🙂
#4 Girl On A Train
I don’t really understand its phenomenon. Everyone seemed to be obsessed about the book, and I heard so many positive thoughts, so I decided to read it. It’s nothing close to ‘Gone Girl’, as a matter of fact -a total waste of time. Luckily, I have found my newest girl crush – Haley Bennett. She is such a great style icon, and has an amazing and unique type of beauty. Great celeb to follow this fall!
#5 Glass Nails
I cheated on my red nails and I liked it! Glass nails are great! Maybe a bit overwhelming after a week, but still something nice to try!
#6 Useful Apps
I am really glad we live in the time of the phone apps. They are so useful! I have been using my favorite apps throughtout October, and waiting for more to come in the future. You should check Miss Beez App for example (as long as you live, or are in London Town).
I am known to be quite obsessed about candles. I have at least five or six at home, but Yankee Candle is my favorite brand. This October my heart was stolen by the most summery scent I have ever had – Aloe Water. It has brought me back to the Phi Phi Island. I really recommend it <3
#8 Pumpkin and Banana Smoothie
Smoothies are my morning routine, but I gave up on my green monster ( find the recipe here) in October. Pumpkin dishes are delicious and healthy – you should use this orange monster a lot. A basic recipe here :
- 1 cup of pumpkin puree
- 1 cup of almond/rice milk
- 1 banana
- 1 tbs of ground cinnamon
- 2 tbs honey
I would add more ingredients such as vanilla extract, chia seeds, oats etc, but I leave it to your taste.
#9 Yves Rocher Make-Up
I was quite surprised when I got my hands on the newest Ives Rocher line! Not only the colors are rich and inspired by the golden fall, but its quality is great! Moreover, the high lighter from the line is the best I have ever had. Read more about it here.
