5 Faves of October

5 Favorites of October
1. American Apparel Denim Backpack: So for the past couple of years I've been avoiding "the backpack" and carrying a purse to school because I just feel like it's more stylish. However, the whole backpack trend exploded last year with the cute camper looking styles and floral prints which made me reconsider my old perspective on how "un-stylish" a backpack was. I'm really glad that backpacks are in style because I really like how much it can hold and I tend to carry a lot and my purse would always look super bulky with my sweater and my packed lunch. Anyways, I'm in love with this denim print because I feel like the floral prints and canvas styles are really popular and although cute, I'm kind of sick of seeing them because everyone at my school has them. (I would have gotten the floral print because that's my favorite print but I have too much clothing with floral and I think floral on floral is kind of weird) This denim print is great because it makes a lot of my outfits look really casual and effortless, however, I tend to avoid wearing my chambray tops with it because that might be too much.
2. Maybelline's Baby Lips Cherry Me: Everyone has been raving about these baby lips products so I decided to jump on this band wagon. My first Baby Lips lip balm was the Peach colored one and I feel in love with the moisture it provided as well as the tinted color it gave my lips. I had to get more so I picked out Cherry Me a red tinted lip balm which I'm currently obsessed with. My lips are naturally more red toned and this lip balm tint just enhances their natural shade. If you haven't tried this out PLEASE go pick one up at your local drug store. They're really affordable ($2.99 at Target) and a MUST HAVE for fall and winter. Oh and they smell AMAZING!
3.Darwin Deez: Up in the Clouds: Great song to listen to on a rainy day in your cozy room with a yummy scented candle lit (i.e. Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle from Bath and Body Works)
4. FREE YES FREE DID I MENTION FREE??? American Apparel Lipgloss NO PURCHASE NECESSARY!!! Say wha???: So I recently got an email from American Apparel saying that they were giving out FREE lipglosses with No Purchase Necessary and I got the email last Monday but I had to wait till this past Friday to go to a American Apparel and they still had the deal going on. :O I was really surprised but I just went in and asked them if they were still doing it and they said yeah and made me fill out a info card with my email and I got a FREE lip gloss of my choice. They don't let you pick from the lip glosses they sell for $12 which was what I thought, but they let you pick from a container with discounted lip glosses selling for $2 :/ Hey it was free and it was still brand new unopened because it had the plastic covering attached. I got a coral pinky shade which was pretty :) So I hope they are still doing this, if you happen to stop by an American Apparel store, be sure to ask them if they are still doing the free lip gloss thing and hopefully you guys can get some free lip gloss too!
5. Walt Disney: This is a simple but motivational quote that I live by. It's a great pick me up phrase I fall back to when I feel overwhelmed by my big goals I have in my life about my future and career. We've all been there where we become so stressed by the impossibility of our dreams, but just remember if you take things one step at a time and have a passion to succeed, that dream will become reality :)
