What I'm Loving in October 2015

10/16/2015

Last year's What I'm Loving wasn't very Halloween-friendly, unless you include my love for Lady Gaga's eau de parfum. This October, I'm mainly into skin care for travel, but I did add one Halloween obsession that I think you'll love!
Have you ever used the Evian® Facial Spray? This would have come in handy back when I was traveling to India, the Maldives and Atlanta. The spray is such a convenient skin care item for travel as it allows your skin to stay moist while stuck in that dry plane air for hours. It's the perfect skin accessory to keep you looking smooth and less tired when your plane lands. Apply it before moisturizer or use as a skin refresher. And if you read the "Ask Diane Von Furstenberg" section in the October issue of InStyle, then you know that even DVF carries this spray in her bags and spritzes it on her curly hair to style on the go. I'm sure you'll want to use the Evian® facial spray for all your upcoming holiday travels -- I know I will!

Sad to say this, but in all my years of blogging, I still haven't been able to find a really great pair of ankle boots. I've seen a lot, but have yet to pull the trigger and purchase. And I own a couple booties, but none of them are exactly what I'm looking for in a go-to shoe. So this fall (is it fall?), I have my eyes on the perfect pair of ankle boots, like a pair by Ellen Tracy or these beauties from Sam Edelman at Shopbop. Do you own a great pair? Any recommendations?

We're always looking for ways to care for our skin, so I was really intrigued when I heard about the Revive Professional Ice Roller from Vanity Planet Beauty. No creams; no mess; no fuss. All you do is place the ice roller in the freezer (yes, the freezer) for about four hours before the first use. Then simply roll it in outward motions across your face to reduce inflammation, lessen the appearance of fine lines and tighten pores. Apply morning and night. Both the hubs and I use it and love the cold feeling! If you're interested, use my special code CHEROLL to get this ice roller for more than 60% off, bringing the price down to $20!

Halloween is just around the corner, so I hope you dolls already have your costume ideas ready. The past couple of years, the hubs and I have thrown a themed Halloween party. First we did a Game of Thrones night and last year we went with Star Wars/Star Trek. For this Halloween, we're doing a Suicide Squad theme, so I think that should be really fun! Of course, I'll be going as Harley Quinn so I've been really into Halloween makeup ideas, especially this great makeup tutorial video. But we all know I'm much better with clothes than with makeup, so if you live in the Bay Area and want to do my Harley Quinn makeup for me, then you're invited!

And how fun are these Makeover Essentials lip glosses? This 12-piece set includes matte, iridescent and shimmery shades that will suit every mood. All the glosses are dermatologist tested and come in gloss tubes that are perfect for travel. Use this 60% off coupon code GLOSSY from Vanity Planet and get the entire set for $10!

Last, but not least, these Rebecca Minkoff micro handbags at Shopbop! I mean, c'mon -- how cute are they? I love that they come in bucket, tote and the trademark style. You can get one of these Rebecca Minkoff micro handbags in a bright color, a neutral tone or a couple of the biggest colors for fall: olive (dark forest) and burgundy (port). I think my fave is the Mini MAB tote...or the Astor Saddle bag! I can't really choose; I love them all! What about you?

  1. Harley Quinn will be such a kick-a$$ costume for you, Cheryl! I saw quite a few when I went to our Fan Expo, and these girls all looked so awesome. Can't wait to see what you come up with:)
    And yay to the Evian spray. I always have one when I go on a plane (which admittedly is not often, but still:P)...

  9. Harley Quinn is a great idea for Halloween this year, as I'm sure it'll be hugely overdone next year when the movie comes out!
