This & That Fridays – October 2

I was going to start this post off talking about how I can’t believe it’s Friday yet again but I just did that last week and I feel like I say that a lot, whether it’s about another week being gone, or a new month or whatever.  So, instead I’m going to talk about how it’s October and it definitely feels like fall!  The weather here has cooled off, the leaves have turned and started falling off the trees and we’ve packed away our patio furniture and cleaned out the flower pots.  A little sad but I also love  October, November & December.  There’s (Canadian) Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas; good food; parties; time with family and friends; and no excuses needed for putting on cozy sweatpants and hoodies after work.  🙂

Apparently flare jeans are making a comeback. Sigh.  I just got comfortable wearing skinnies.  However I loved flare jeans for a very long time, well after they were no longer “in style” so I’m not all that disappointed.  Plus I feel like they are much more flattering on my shape.  I prefer a more subtle flare like these ones from Paige Denim.

I recently picked up this necklace and I cannot wait to wear it!  Fossil always has such great quality costume jewellery (BTW I got an extra 40% off that price!) 🙂

I recently watched Makeup Geek’s video about determining your undertone.  I already knew that I was cool-toned, but I learned some things that I didn’t know, like apparently I should be wearing a warm-toned blush!  Video here.

I was the biggest N’Sync fan back in the day – still holding out hope that some day, they’ll reunite and do a world tour. #humorme  This Buzzfeed article was successful in making me feel extremely old.  Seriously, 20 years?  Those pictures sure are a blast from the past…how embarrassing for them.  And me, I guess…

Lastly, if you need some guidance on how to properly enjoy the fall season, this Siberian Husky can show you how it’s done.

As per usual, I’m behind on posts.  But I’m determined to get a bunch written up this weekend so expect to see my e.l.f. haul, Boston travel diary and Birchbox creation posts written and posted this weekend.  Wish me luck because I’m going to need it.  Professional procrastinator here…

Have a great weekend!

    I always look at Fossil jewellery but I’ve never bought any – I do have a Fossil watch with interchangeable straps which I love. You got a great deal on that necklace.
    And omg that Siberian Husky looks like he’s having the time of his life! Haha!
