This post is five days overdue but I figured it was better late than never. This month, my favourites are a little all over the map. Some of the things are natural beauty products and some of the stuff is more practical.
1. Desert Essence Organics: Spicy Vanilla Chai Body Wash
For me, this body wash is a no brainer, considering how much I love chai tea. In the shower, this product smells like you’re lathering chai tea all over your body. For some, that concept might be gross. For me, it’s delightful.
2. Novel: Half-Broke Horses, by Jeannette Walls
I am a huge fan of The Glass Castle (it’s my favourite book) so I decided to try this book by the same author. It’s not marketed as a memoir or biography but the entire book is based on her grandmother’s life. I finished it early this month and recommend it to anyone!
3. Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Mascara
Not all of the Physician’s Formula products are natural, but apparently, this mascara is. All the beauty gurus on Facebook raved about it, so I had to try it. Turns out I love it!
4. Tom’s Naturally Dry Antiperspirant
For I while I was looking for a natural deodorant because I was paranoid of the chemicals in regular deodorant, and I read numerous studies about how they may cause cancer etc. I tried a natural deodorant that I bought off Etsy, and it didn’t work for me, so I decided to buy this guy. The only kind they had in stock was “unscented” and I was a little wary of that, as I have only used scented deodorants in the past. It works great though, and the scent thing is totally not an issue! Once your body becomes accustomed to a more natural deodorant, it works as well as any other brand.
5. Cinnamon Sticks
This is sort of a random favourite but I’ve been obsessed with putting cinnamon sticks in my tea! I remember past holidays where vats of hot apple cider were served, filled with delicious spices like cloves and cinnamon sticks. The spicy favours and aromas of fall just get me in the mood for the holidays.
