Oh my! It's now 2019 and its time for yet another favorites post. I've had such a great month, mainly because I've gotten to try a number of things I was gifted for Christmas. Without further ado, let's get into today's favorites post!
JEFFREE STAR VELOUR LIP SCRUB | $12
JEFFREE STAR VELOR LIQUID LIPSTICK | $18
MORPHIE M143 LARGE FAN BRUSH | $7
AMAZON ECHO DOT | $30
TANTAN SMART PLUGS, 2-PACK | $19
MY FAVORITE YOUTUBE CHANNEL | THE INGHAM FAMILY
MY FAVORITE MOVIE | AQUAMAN
When I was growing up, my mom and grandparents used to buy our house a gift. It was normally new pots and pans for the kitchen or a vacuum cleaner for the carpets. I decided this year to carry this tradition over and purchase our home an Amazon Echo Dot.
Ever since setting it up, I have purchased some items to go with it that have made my life so much easier! Keep reading to learn more about how the Echo Dot can improve your day-to-day life.
STRETCHING YOUR BRAIN
I now load up the machine with coffee grinds and water the night before. When I wake up, I simply say "Alexa, turn on the coffee machine." She turns it on for me and it can make itself while I get ready for the day. After that, I just have to add in my sugar and creamer and I'm on my way out the door!
PRO-TIP: You don't have to spend a ton of money on Amazon products. Check on Amazon to see if the plug, smartbulb, or smart TV is compatible with Alexa!

Thanks so much for reading all of my Tweet-tober answers. I am also thankful for those of you who participated in this tag challenge! Maybe, just maybe, you can expect another tag in December!
Blog-tober has been such an amazing and rewarding experience. But, today's blog is one that normally happens each month on this blog: my monthly favorites, where I tell you what products and other things I loved this month. Check it out:
ALMOND MILK | $3
I love the almond milk because it is creamy and it's a lot better for me than traditional milk. I have been using the vanilla milk, but I may try unsweetened almond milk next time to see if I like it!
HIGHLIGHTER | $5
OUR WORKPLACE CAT
NAIL POLISH REMOVER DISPENSER | $1
MY FAVORITE OCTOBER YOUTUBE CHANNEL
I've been in love with true crimes videos on YouTube and I've found one YouTuber that I absolutely love: Eleanor Neale.
She basically does a ton of in-depth research on both solved and unsolved murders. She is also a makeup YouTuber, but I've actually only seen her true crime videos. I do think I'll eventually check out her makeup videos. If you're a fan of learning about crime stories, I suggest checking Eleanor Neale out on YouTube and subscribing to her channel!
MY FAVORITE OCTOBER MOVIE
I'm sorry that this monthly favorites blog post hasn't been very long, but I haven't really had a lot of time this month to try new things thanks to the blog schedule and blogtober! I'm sure there will be many more things I can tell you about in November.

Ahhhh fall. There's nothing like lighting a candle, cuddling up on the couch, and enjoying a hot cup of coffee (or cocoa) after work! One of my favorite things about candles are their associations with the seasons. There are so many amazing candle scents that you need to put into your life this fall.
Here they are:
There are so many great fall scents for candles, I think that these are my favorites. I also really like scents like marshmallow, but I don't know if the smell is strong enough to really permeate your home or apartment enough to give you the sense of all when you smell them.
Do you have any suggestions for candles I should try this fall? If so, please leave them below!
