In October I Treat Myself

This post is sponsored by Acorn Influence. #AcornFallBox

October is my most favorite month. It could have something to do with the lovely fall weather, but it probably has more to do with the fact that it’s my birthday month. Yup, I’m one of those folks who totally lives it up every single day of the month leading up to and following her birthday. This is the time of the year that I indulge in manicures, new shoes, and special lunches several times each week. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I’m a queen for a month, but a sista does treat herself! Oh-kay!


My friends over at Acorn Influence must have received the message, because they invited me to check out the autumn-tastic Fall Acorn Box! It’s like they know me so well. Not only did they send a box filled with great products that make me swoon and feel all fall-like, but did I mention that it’s also my birthday month, too? Ha!

Really, everything in the Fall Acorn Box was a win, and it totally felt like getting a special care package from a friend. Everything I pulled out of the box was something that I’d absolutely purchase for myself, whether it’s to treat myself, or even just for everyday use. Because it’s October and I’m in such a good mood, I’m going to let you in on what was in the box!

Onyx Coffee

I’d heard so much about Onyx Coffee Lab from my friends in Northwest Arkansas, so I was excited to see this small batch of their famous coffee in the box. As a coffee snob of sorts, I couldn’t wait to get this java in my cup.

Glade Fall Scented Candle

I’ve loved Glade candles forever, and I always buy the current scent of the season. The Acorn Box featured the Pumpkin Pit Stop scent, and my mother-in-law and I both fell in love with it. What’s not to love about the smell of fall, though? 🙂

MayDesigns Notebook

Oh my goodness, this personalized notebook from MayDesigns is so special! As a writer and an expert list maker, I carry a notebook everywhere I go. Not only is this notebook sturdy, but it’s feminine and I feel really cool when I pull it out of my purse. Want to get a MayDesigns Notebook of your own? Use the code ACORN-20 for 20% off through the end of October! Treat yourself!


Goody Hair Elastics

One can never have too many hair elastics. Between my afro puff and Ayva’s ponytails, we go through them! Goody has long been our brand of choice, and these Ouchless elastics in lovely fall colors are perfect for this time of the year.


The Switch Witch

If there’s anything I love more than treating myself, it’s treating Ayva. When I saw The Switch Witch in the #FallAcornBox, I grinned because I knew Ayva would adore it. From the adorable Switch Witch doll to the funny book, she has been reading the book over and over again.


Happy October, y’all! How do you like to celebrate the best month of the year?
