October 2016 Favorites

I love October.  Well, I mostly love Halloween, but since it’s at the end of the month, I can look forward to it all month! 

Reader I’ve been re-reading the Valdemar universe books by Mercedes Lackey.  I was 11 or 12 the first time I read Arrows of the Queen, and I have read every book since then, including many of the non-Valdemar books. Between Mercedes Lackey and Anne McCaffrey, I spent a lot of time reading about companions and dragons.

Foodie I am mad about lychee anything.  I am equally game to try everything passion fruit. Imagine my immense delight when I found the two combined in  a very appealing passion fruit green tea with lychee jelly! It’s on the sweet side, so I can’t have it too often.  If you, too, are a fan of lychee and passion fruit, give it a try next time you are at 85C Bakery. But, maybe wait until warmer days are here again.

Traveler Google Maps is an oldie but a goodie. I’ve used it to get from airports to office buildings to hotels to the country side.

Runner This month, compression socks have saved my legs. I’ve been having deep muscle cramps while running (not muscle or electrolyte based), and wearing the compression  socks or sleeves up to the knees all the time has helped so much!  It’s not 100% yet, but it’s definitely getting better.

Makeup Junkie I broke down and bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario.  It’s so good!  Pigmented, and every shade blends out beautifully.  I always use an eye primer, but there was no creasing or fading, even after 12+ hours of wear. I’m particularly in love with the olive shade, Bronx. 

Those are my favorites – what have you been enjoying this month?
