First of all, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that has shown me support in the first couple days of having The Boho Beach Blog up and running. I’ve had so many likes and comments on my last few Instagram posts and have received nothing but positive feedback. I’m so excited to continue creating new content for you and I can’t wait to see where this new adventure takes me!
Now on to the real reason we’re here…
If you’re anything like me, your Instagram feed and the blogs you read are probably full of inspiration. Awesome DIY’s, home decor ideas, the latest fashion trends, the best beauty products, and so many other things that you want to try or buy! I love when others share their favorite products, so I want to do the same!
At the end of each month, I’ll be sharing my favorite products from the month. Clothes, beauty products, home decor items, health and fitness products…pretty much anything that I’ve found useful or that has inspired me in some way that month. Here’s what I was loving during the month of October!
1. The Opalhouse Line at Target
Varying prices at Target
You guys, I’m seriously obsessed with this line. Literally EVERYTHING is so. freaking. cute! My coffee table is Opalhouse, almost everything in my master bathroom is Opalhouse, and there’s about 75 other things from the line that I’m dying to have! Every single item in the line is a little bit modern, a little bit boho, and a whole lot of fun!
They also currently have their holiday line available, and I want to buy it all! I mean seriously, look at this stuff!
2. Balance from Alani Nu
$49.99 at Alaninu.com for a 30 day supply
If you’re into fitness or follow any fitness accounts on Instagram, you’ve probably heard of Katy Hearn (booty queen, new mama, and major boss babe.) Alani Nu is the supplement company she and her husband own, and Balance is a product they have created that helps with hormone balance, weight management, and fertility. One of the main things that people have found Balance to help with is acne, which is why I take it.
When I stopped taking birth control about six months ago, my skin went to complete crap. I’m talking constant breakouts on my face, chest, and back that no face wash or skin care product would get rid of. Enter Balance, and within two weeks my skin had done a complete 180. Now don’t get me wrong, I still get a few breakouts here and there, but this stuff has made it so much more manageable.
In addition to helping with acne, people have said that Balance has helped them with things like PCOS, managing irregular cycles, and other hormonal issues. If you suffer from acne, PCOS, or any other problems that are related to hormones, go check this stuff out!
They do sell out of this product quickly, and often, so I suggest signing up for their text alerts to be notified when they restock, and then then purchasing right away when you receive the alert. You can also sign up for an automatic subscription so you don’t have to worry about it being sold out when you need a new bottle!
3. Karella Jumpsuit from Lulus
$58 at Lulus
I had never ordered anything from Lulus before, but I am now officially hooked.
Earlier this month I went to Washington D.C. with my husband to an annual conference for the company he works for. One of the week’s events was a dinner cruise on the Potomac River, which is where I wore this jumpsuit. I got so many compliments on it! And not only is it so cute, but it is also extremely comfortable! I normally have a hard time with things like this being long enough, but this was the perfect length for me to wear with heels. I dressed it up with gold jewelry and threw my leather jacket over it since we had a bit of a walk on a chilly night!
I only got one picture of me wearing it, and unfortunately it was not a very high quality photo, but you can see what I paired it with here!
4. Tarte Maracuja Oil
$16 for 0.5 oz. or $48 for 1.7 oz. at Tarte.com, Ulta, or Sephora
I am a die hard drugstore makeup fan. Most of the time I just cannot bring myself to buy designer beauty products. $50 for foundation? Seriously? I just can’t. BUT, there are a few products that I’m willing to splurge on, and this is one of them.
Maracuja oil is designed to help the skin look firmer, smoother, and brighter. I use it as a moisturize, and I really love the way it makes my skin look and feel. The best part is, it never leaves my skin looking or feeling oily.
I buy the 0.5 oz. bottle and it lasts me 3+ months. I would guess that the larger bottle would easily last me a full year!
5. Leyla Bootie from Target
$37.99 at Target
Booties are my absolute favorite type of shoe, and this pair is PERFECT for fall! The cognac color is so pretty, and the little rope details add just the right amount of fun. They have a 3.5″ heel (which means they’re still comfortable and easy to walk in) and zippers on the inner ankles making them easy to put on and take off. They also come in black if that’s more your style!
Now if this Florida weather would just cool off so that I can actually wear these beauties!
