A Few of My Favorite Things: October 2015 Edition

It's been a while since I've shared with you guys some of my favorite things. Now that I'm on day 3 of my one month shopping ban, it seems I've been noticing more favorite things than usual. I want to buy everything!! Sigh. Anyway, here are some of my favorites: 

+ First and foremost, I have to say that I'm in love with Holl and Lane Magazine! You guys already knew that, right? Being a part of the social media team has been so rewarding. But I'm also honored to report that I'm a contributor for Issue 3. I shared my struggle with cultural identity (page 86) and I hope you check it out! 

+ I know I'm behind the curve on this one and it just went off the air, but I've been loving Mad Men lately on Netflix. That Don Draper, rawwwrrr. I love the fashion of that time period. It keeps me entertained during my long bouts of insomnia. 

+ I'm hanging out with Jasmine over at Classy Sassy & a Bit Smartassy blog today for a sponsor spotlight/interview. Jasmine is super awesome - come visit! 

+ I've found myself itching to help and serve others lately. I mentioned before that I am shaving my head in March to raise money for childhood cancer research. If you have a few dollars to spare and would like to support a good cause, I urge you to donate. I've also signed up to become a crisis counselor for the Crisis Text Line, a 24/7 emotional support line for those in a crisis. My training starts next week and lasts for 6 weeks. I can't wait to begin! 

+ Pumpkin Pie Lattes. You read that correctly, I said "pie" not "spice." I don't know if I'm really a big fan of the Starbucks PSL. But I had a Pumpkin Pie Latte not too long ago at my grocery store coffee bar and I walked really slowly around the store and just savored it. So so so good. I'm really loving the rain and cooler weather we're having in these parts lately. I know, I know, I'm one of those girls. #notsorry 

+ Annndd you knew a list of my favorite things would not be complete without mentioning a book. I'm re-reading "Misery" by Stephen King right now for book club. I heart Stephen King. I almost want to move to Maine just so I might spot him out and about and then I can stalk him. No? Bad idea? 

OK, well, there you have it. Some of my favorite things. What are you loving lately? Just hand over the info peoples, inquiring minds want to know. :) Ciao!

P.S. The Write or Die Wednesday link up is almost here! Join Shelly and me beginning on Weds, 10/7 and share how the photo prompt below inspires you. Happy writing!
