Favorite Things: October Edition

Friends! Look at me blogging! I've been thinking about this little ol' blog a lot lately. I miss it in so many ways. And I've got some favorite things that I've been wanting to share - so I might as well just share 'em. I used to do this fairly frequently over here so we might as well do it again. Sit down, get out a pen and paper and take notes. These are my October favorites!

1. Leah Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath

Okay. Here's the thing. THIS SHOW IS BANANAS.

I am addicted. I watched Season 1 faithfully and now we're in Season 2 and I can't get enough. The stories are fascinating and horrifying all at the same time. Leah's upper lip never moves but that's okay. She is committed to exposing this "church" and I am just amazed that all of this happens and they all just get away with it. It's amazing. You need to watch it! I think Season 1 is on Hulu.

2. The Popcast with Knox & Jamie

My new favorite podcast! The Popcast bills itself as a show about "things that entertain, but do not matter". This is my mindless, I need to laugh while I fold laundry, I haven't read a magazine lately, I love pop culture and funny people Podcast. They talk about silly things and make very interesting observations and they make me laugh SO HARD. My favorite episodes have happened in the last few months. Listen to

Episode 199: Pop Culture Redundancies 
Episode 202: The Nos of Weddings
Episode 208: The Nos of Birthdays

If you go to their website and click "Listen" - there is a link to Starter Episodes - ones they think you should listen to if you're just starting out. They're the best!

3. Gain Fireworks Scent Booster

I've been putting this in my laundry for the last month or so and everything smells lovely. I'm a fan. And that's all I have to say about that. 

4. Orange Theory Fitness 

I know. I just said something fitness related as a favorite thing. Who am I and who has kidnapped the writer of this blog?

Look. I've been going a few times a week for over a month now. I can honestly say that it's the first exercise related thing that I've liked. It's different every time you go, you move around a lot from thing to thing during the class so it holds my attention, it's over in an hour, and my favorite thing:

They tell you exactly what to do.

No guessing. A trainer tells you exactly what to put your treadmill speed on, and at what incline, and then 90 seconds later he/she tells you the next thing to do. I just follow instructions.

Don't get me wrong, it is HARD and I come out of there nearly dying every time. But I KNOW I got a good work out (you wear a monitor the whole time so you know exactly how many calories you've burned in each class) - I just like it a lot.

5. Shameless Stella & Dot plug :)

I don't know if you've seen our holiday collection, but it really is gorgeous. I have lots of fun giftable items to use as stocking stuffers (the stud packs are soooo cute!) but we've got a promotion going on right now too! Buy 2 bracelets, get the 3rd 50% off. Hello, arm parties :)

And, the best part is that you can combine that with our other offer for 50% off one of these items when you spend $50!

To browse or shop go to but I have a special link if you want one of those 50% off items. Let me know if you have any questions or you want the link!

And that concludes my favorite things in October!


Thanks for stopping by!!
