November Favorites!!!

We're back for the Monthly Favorites Link-Up!  Mia and I are sharing our favorites from the past month and we're excited to have you join us.  Before you do anything, check out Mia's faves HERE!

And before I talk about my favorites...I'm going to be away from the blog until next week because I'm going to Seattle to hang out with Tiffany from A Touch of Grace who has become one of my besties through our blogs.  I'm super excited!!!  Y'all, if you would have told me that I'd be so close to someone so far away a couple of years ago, I'd think you're crazy.  Tiffany has been there for me through hard times and the good.  I'm so so grateful for her friendship.

Onto my November Favorites...


A few months ago, I bought this BareMinerals Prime Time Primer Shadow Trio (lavender ice, golden peach, toasted almond) and honestly, I love them.  Ever since becoming a blogger, I've learned so much about makeup.  Eye shadow primer really DOES make my eyeshadow stay on all day.  Sometimes I wear these as eyeshadow and they're beautiful!

I have been in need of a good blush for ages.  I was using an Elf one and honestly, it wasn't my favorite.  I finally spent my giftcard at Sephora on Buxom True Hue Blush in Temptation and I LOVE it!  I guess it really does pay to use quality products sometimes!  I know, I many of you already learned that lesson ages ago!


This past weekend, I made Lisa's Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread while our friends were in town and it was AMAZING!  Yum!  I highly recommend it if you're looking to make something easy and delicious!


As some of you know, I've been experimenting with making my own health and beauty products at home.  I recently made some Whipped Peppermint Body Butter using Young Living Peppermint essential oil.  I love it!

mine :)


This last weekend, our friends from DFW came down to visit us!  It was a surprise for Kevin...we were working on it for a while before they came.  He was super surprised and super excited!  

We went hiking at Lost Maples State Park on Saturday - perfect weather, y'all!  70 degrees and sunny!  Perfect hiking weather and the leaves were all kinds of beautiful colors.

Now it's your turn to link up!  Grab the button, share your favorites from November and link up below.  I can't wait to see what you loved!

*Forgive me if I don't comment right away...I promise I'll catch up when I'm back from Seattle!
