October is coming to a close slowly but surely. October is one of those months where it's actually what the weather is supposed to be. Fall. Cooler temps and time to put on a layer or two.Now that the weather is cooler our holy grail of favorites have changed just like the season. Here's our October Must Haves.
Sweaters and especially chunky sweater are a must during fall. Being a fall baby I have a love and hate relationship with fall. I LOVE summer because I love the heat but I love fall because it's still a bit warm during the day and a little bit cooler in the evenings to wear those chunky sweaters with a cute jacket, boots and scarf. This sweater (shown above) I got last year about this time from Charlotte Russe. It's hard to find a good sweater and when I do I buy them in more then one color. I really wish I bought more then two colors.
When the weather gets cooler everyone loves to reach for something warm to drink. I normally drink 1 hot cup of tea in the morning year around but when the temps drop I drink up to three. Most times it's tea.Sometimes if I'm in the mood I might drink a cup of coffee. So you got to have a go to mug. This one I got from the dollar store. It's tall so that means more tea.
Between boots and scarfs are my fall all time favs. You can't go wrong with a good scarf. You can wear them a million and one different ways and now that I'm natural they go double duty as a hair wrap. This one is my all time favorite because of the neutral color and cool animal print. This puppy goes with anything and everything. You can find these at your local vendors, Target, Walmart and etc.
Now that I'm natural and this is my second winter I know my hair needs moisture in the cooler temps. This baby right here is my go to moisturizer. Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi with Sunflower & Shea Deep Moisture Milk Souffle. It not only helps keep my hair moisturized but smells good too. I use this after doing the LOC method and before I put my styler in my hair. This jar is 12oz and should last you a long time and a little goes a long way.
Curls. Blueberry Bliss Twist-N-Shout Cream . I used this baby a total of 4 times so far on wet and dry hair and I see what all the hype is about this brand and line. It's hands down tha bomb. I recently did my hair using this as a styler with eco styling gel for a twist out and a little bit goes a long way. No buildup or flaking and works well with the eco styling gel. My twist out last for 4 days. I could of went for 5 or 6 days but I pineappled my hair on day 5. I then used it to twist my hair on dry hair and the same. No buildup and my twist are well moisturized and bouncy. I know when I take the twists out that my twist out will be everything. I'm definitely going to try the rest of the products in this line.
I could of added so many more items to my must haves for October but I decided to keep it short and sweet. What's your must haves for October? I would love to know.
