October Must-Haves

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

I can't believe that it's already November! This year has gone by so fast! October was a really unique month for me. I had my surgery at the end of September and I came home from the hospital the first week of October. I'm very limited to what I can do at this point in my recovery, so October was spent doing things a lot differently than I normally would.

Since yesterday was officially the end of October, I wanted to share some of my favorite things that helped me get through the month.

Chapstick - Between my surgery and the weather changing, my lips have been extremely chapped lately. I've been loving this chapstick because not only does it keep my lips super hydrated, but it also adds a hint of color and shimmer to my lips. I haven't been able to wear any makeup since my surgery so I love this chapstick because it makes me look a little more vibrant and awake.

Bath Bombs - I love taking a bath right before bed. It helps me to relax and is also a great wait to help manage my post-op pain. I love relaxing in the tub with a good book and my favorite bath bomb. I've been loving the Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb from Lush. The beautiful blue color is so relaxing and I love the smell!

Puzzles - So my newest thing that I've been super into lately, especially this past month, is puzzles. There's only so much Netflix a person can watch, so I started doing a lot of puzzles during my recovery period. Disney is one of my favorite things in the world and I love Thomas Kinkade so I was so excited to find the Thomas Kinkade Disney puzzles. This one has been my favorite so far, but I also really enjoyed doing these. I'm currently working on an awesome 101 Dalmatians puzzle and it's super hard!

A Good Book - I've always been a big reader and last month I read a lot since I had more free time. I'm a huge fan of Stephen King so October was the perfect month to break out some of my favorite novels to get in the Halloween spirit. Last month I re-read IT and Misery. These are both two of my favorite Stephen King novels.

Planner - I had so many appointments last month and it was important that I didn't miss any of them. Last month my planner was with me at all times and was a great way to stay organized and keep track of appointments.
