Happy #JingleBlogs Day 3! I couldn't pass up sharing some great finds from last month.


Beauty

+ Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths Strengthening Conditioner
This conditioner seriously changed my entire haircare routine. I discovered the miracle that is this product completely by chance; I ran out of conditioner and grabbed this one off the shelf at Target. If you know me in real life, you'd know that I hate my natural hair. It's curly from root to end, and I've been straightening it since I was 13, so the fact that I haven't straightened it in a month speaks volumes (no pun intended). It seriously looks like I got my hair curled at a salon instead of sticking my finger in an electrical socket. Also, the conditioner smells amazing.

+ Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
This was in my October favorites post, but I had just recently purchased it when I added it to the list. Now that I've been using it for a month, I can give a more informed opinion. My suspicions were right: it helped a ton with my dry skin and helps with oil buildup. Great product at a great price point because a little goes a long way. Highly recommend. 

Music

Some random singles on repeat:
"Life Itself" // Glass Animals
"Robbers" // The 1975
"You Might Think" // The Cars

Netflix

+ Black Mirror
I... this show.... just.... Black Mirror is a Netflix original, and it's truly bizarre. Highly addictive, very uncanny, and you should probably check it out. *binge warning* 

+ Inside the World's Toughest Prisons
I have no idea why I clicked on this show to be honest. I was scrolling through the "recently added" list and this was there... and I totally got sucked in. Paul Connoly, an investigative journalist in the UK, literally goes inside some of the harshest prisons out there. Watching it, I couldn't believe that places like this exist, even to punish the worst kinds of people. I thought it was pretty interesting, despite the three-star rating, and I hope more episodes are added because four isn't enough.

Food/Drink

+ Stōk Cold Brew
I included this in my October favorites post after I purchased it by chance. I buy it on the regular now and highly recommend. Find it at Target or Publix!  

+ Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter
I don't buy almond butter because it's expensive. There, I said it. I'm on that college student budget, and I'm just not willing to spend $8 or more on a jar of finely ground up almonds. I may have polished off a jar of this while I was home for Thanksgiving break. I like to eat it on a waffle with some berries or bananas and a drizzle of honey.

What did you love last month?
