Cute & Creepy Wax Warmers from Halloween Forevermore

I absolutely LOVE October – yes, for many of the cliché reasons: beautiful leaves, pumpkin chai lattes, blah blah blah.  But why I really love October is for Halloween!  I happen to be a Hallow-Baby and as soon as it is October 1, I go into full-on Halloween-mode and decorate the house, Secret Boo people and generally geek out about all things spooky and Halloweenish.  While I am definitely a Halloween fan, the awesome people over at Halloween Forevermore are year-round Hallow-junkies and I love it!  In addition to celebrating my favorite holiday year-round, they offer some pretty incredible Halloween inspired wax warmers that are a definite must-have for any Halloween lovers like myself.  I received the Undertaker wax warmer in exchange for my honest opinion.

Reusable Mira Lunch Jar – Perfect for Sending Soups to School

I pack our girls’ lunches every day of the week, well, I take that back, once I packed Miss Goose’s and forgot to send it with her and she was able to try out “hot lunch” – she was super excited when she called me to ask me to put money into her account via the phone.  As it turns out, hot lunch was not so delicious and she was incredibly happy to return to mom’s special lunches.  Especially since I received the Mira Lunch Jar for review – this BPA-free, reusable jar holds up to 10-oz and is the perfect way to send a “hot lunch” to school without fear of pink sludge.

Comfy Yoga Pants from Appleletics

While I have definitely been engaging more and more in yoga, I have to admit: my yoga pants are usually for not doing yoga in.  And after chatting with some friends, turns out, I’m not the only one!  But as I said, I am trying to do more yoga and pilates as a way to improve my health and my mental well-being, so I figure, a new pair of yoga pants is definitely the way to do that, right?  Appleletics, maker of super cute and wearable workout wear, sent me a pair of black yoga pants in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think of the Appleletics Yoga Pants?

I have to say, I am in love with these yoga pants!  They are made from a cotton and spandex blend that allows for perfect stretch and are oh-so-comfy!  I love how flattering they are and that while they are a comfortable level on thinness, they are not see-through!  I have purchased pairs in the past where you could see my, ahem, assets, and I wasn’t digging that.  But with the Appleletics brand yoga pants, I can feel cool, comfortable and know that my bum is experiencing full coverage!

The Cicily Tote from Maggie Bags is the Perfect Fall Fashion Accessory!

Fall is upon us, so now I can pull out my big fuzzy sweaters  – I noticed that among my sweaters, I had a lot of brown.  Which for me, is unusual, I just don’t wear a lot of it – unless it is fall, apparently!  So that meant I needed a new purse that could go with those styles and my favorite eco-friendly purse retailer, was there to the rescue!  Maggie Bags provides visually stunning and eco-friendly purses made from seat belts! I received the Cicily Tote in Dark Chocolate in exchange for my opinion and I adore it!

What did I think of the Cicily Tote from Maggie Bags?

Maggie Bags knows style – but they also know function!  When you get a Maggie Bags purse, you can be sure that not only will you love the way it looks and how you can dress them up or down with so many outfits, but they are functional to living, too!  The Cicily Tote is more shallow purse, but for someone like me who will fill a large purse to the brim, sometimes I need the downsize forced upon me!  But just because it is smaller in stature, do not discount its ability to hold things.  It still is quite spacious on the inside and holds all of my essentials, with room for more.  Plus it has a great inside zipper pocket and on the opposite side, a space for slipping in small things like your phone (lest you have a giant one!) and lip-glosses.

The deep chocolate color is rich and inviting and looks wonderful with jeans and a sweater, but also looks just as nice with a skirt and blouse!  I love how the Cicily Tote has a flat bottom so it will sit up anywhere you put it and no need to worry about the contents of your purse tipping because you could not find a place to prop your purse!
