Monthly Favorites

On My Mind
Is it too cliché to say the election? 😛 I think that this video with a message from President Obama is very compelling if you're hesitant about whether or not your vote makes a difference. I don't want to sound too preachy, but we truly are so lucky to live in a country that allows us to choose our leaders! I have visited several countries which consider themselves to be "democracies," but the citizens in fact have no say in the "election" of their leaders. Just some food for thought before you head to the polls tomorrow. :)

Reading
I haven't started reading it yet, but I just checked out The Boy In The Striped Pajamas from the library. I'm sure I've mentioned in the past that I'm the type of person who has to read the book before watching the movie, because I love comparing what I visualized in my head while reading the book with the vision that filmmakers come up with!

Wearing
As mentioned in my last "Monthly Favorites" post, I've been loving turtlenecks. I know they're nothing new, but I guess I never bothered to style them much before. I picked up this Uniqlo Heattech turtleneck as seen on da Insta. I've tried out Uniqlo's Heattech line in the past and it definitely does seem to warm me up more than a regular layer would! I love that they're thin and therefore not bulky when layered under sweaters upon sweaters. Uniqlo just had their grand opening at my mall (Tyson's Corner aka bae), so as you can tell I'm a little excited. ;)

Beauty
I discovered RMS Beauty a loooong time ago, but keep forgetting about it. I think I'll add this eye polish to my Christmas wishlist (thanks Mom and Dad!). How beautiful is the color "myth?" It would be such a good day to night shade, with enough sparkle for the upcoming Christmas season.

Desire
Speaking of Uniqlo, these joggers in beige are totally on my wishlist. I've styled joggers a couple of times here on the blog, so you know how much I love these pj-like pants. These Uniqlo ones are an upgrade in my book since they're very tailored (dare I say even office-appropriate?), with the pleats and belt loops. These H&M stirrup leggings are also on my wish list, especially after having seen them on the runway of NYFW this fall. Such a 90's throwback though- would you wear them?!
