Leah Figures It Out – October Recap

Leah Figures It Out – October Recap

The month of October means that fall is truly among us; the air is crisp in the morning, time to pull out sweaters, sweatpants, and enjoy apples, and other fall foods. This October has been one of the best fall beginnings I’ve had in awhile. Here’s why:       Chef Laura is my Giada  For 10 months I have been subscribed to the Youtube channel Laura in the Kitchen. Laura is a young chef (believe it or not we are the same age) who is from Italy and lives in New Jersey with her husband, Joe. Not surprisingly, she loves Italian cooking (as do I) and the comfort of being in the kitchen. Her website laurainthekitchen.com has a variety of recipes for all pallates. On her Youtube channel, she recently did a “Fall Essentials” live event, showing viewers the items she keeps stocked in her pantry and fridge during the fall and winter months since she cooks and bakes more for her family and friends. She answered questions from viewers and baked a pie during the event. It was fun to watch and get tips about the type of pie crust to buy, how to freeze and store things, keeping your spices organized, which wines are good to cook with and other suggestions. Check the video out here. Blue Me Away According to Fashion week, Cobalt Blue is the hot color for fall. Therefore, I made it my goal to purchase at least one blue item for my wardrobe. I ended up purchasing a simple blue high-low top with black piping. This can be paired with high-waisted jeans, a skirt, or leggings. It’s very feminine and adds a pop of color to my closet.  I also purchased a pair of thigh-high boots, which are actually comfortable. I wanted a pair last year but couldn’t find any that I liked. They can be worn again, with skirts, and skinny jeans, and in my opinion are edgy and classy.  Eye Feel Beautiful  It wasn’t planned that my two favorite beauty products of the month would be eye related but, they were. And they are: Estee Lauder Pure Colors 08 Bronze Dunes. This is a 5 color eyeshadow palette with shimmery, satin, and matte shadows that are perfect for daily use and provide a nice, even, nude eye. Maybelline “The Falsies” Big Eyes Mascara. Previously, I loved the Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express Mascara, but “The Falsies” is my new favorite. This mascara actually does what it says it will! It gives your lashes length and doesn’t clump. AND there is a separate brush for your lower lashes which adds definition to your look....
