October Favorites - Monthly Favories

I really don’t want to start off by saying that November is here!! I mean can you believe it?? How did you celebrate Halloween?

The chilly weather is here to stay and all I wanna do is watch some good shows and drink hot coffee!

Watching

I have been binge watching ‘Covert Affairs’ on Amazon Prime and I’m kinda in love with the character of Annie Walker. What have you guys been watching lately? Do recommend me a few shows that you absolutely love!

Last month, I made this Cute Dollar Tree Halloween Wreath under $10 . Now for the month of November, I’m planning to replace those cute purple bats with a little Turkey decor or more leaves and I’m all set for Thanksgiving! 

I’m also loving this DIY World Map Travel Art that I made and I love how it’s turned out into a conversational piece whenever friends come over.

I made these fun and healthy Candy Corn Fruit parfaits for Halloween. Okay, scratch that, they can actually be made all year round with any fruits of your choice.

Speaking of healthy recipes, I have been getting a lot of traffic for my No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls that I shared some time back  and a majority of the traffic is coming from Pinterest!

Travel 

Last to last weekend was a lot of fun as we attended the Annual Harry Potter Festival in Pennsylvania. If you are a Potter fan and live close to PA, you should definitely attend it next year if you get a chance.

Fall is almost over… Have you done these 12 Free and Fun Activities with your family this year??

What I have been loving –

I recently got to try this amazing and healthy protein powder by Aloha. I will be writing more about how I used Aloha Protein Powder in a future post. If you want to get a free trial from them, you can click on this link.

    If you have Netflix, try “The Fall” It’s a great detective/psychological thriller that takes place in Ireland. I’ll have to check yours out on Netflix. Love those energy balls, I make a lot of different ones too to satisfy my sweet tooth without the guilt 🙂

      Thanks for the recommendation, Loretta. I love thriller type of series 😊 Will definitely check it out. And yes, being able to eat without guilt is the key, right? 😜💕

        It’s not exaggerating to name your blog as a “perfect” blog. Wish I could get theme like yours, though not for my personal blog.

          That’s a huge compliment, Jai! You are really kind. My theme is actually a free theme.. I think it’s called Zinnias Lite theme. So happy to connect with you through our blogs.
