If you’ve missed my book reviews for the past couple months, they are back! This month I am reviewing The Ex Hex, right in time for Halloween. I love a good witchy romance. I used one of my Audible credits for this month and enjoyed listening to it while driving around town.
The book is about a witch named Vivi, it starts off with her at 19 years old completely broken-hearted over a boy. She nurses her broken heart with vodka a bubble bath and a lighthearted curse. She didn’t think she would end up actually cursing Rhys using a Bath and Body Works candle, but 9 years later when Rhys comes back to town on his family’s witchy business things start going really wrong. Rhys and Vivi spend time together trying to break the curse, and sparks start to fly all over again.
This book is super cute and fun for this time of year. It was an easy one to get through, and enjoyable to listen to on Audible.
I love all things from Red Dress Boutique! They are constantly coming out with new arrivals. All of their clothes are so adorable and they have tons of affordable options. I picked out a handful of pieces to share with you this month!
I love this royal blue sweater dress! It is so comfortable and would be great for so many different things. I think it would be adorable for work or for date night!
I love this plaid dress, and think it would be too cute for fall activities! Click To Shop!
This shacket is amazing, and makes me feel like I should be in Wyoming sitting by a fire. Click here to shop.
I will also be sharing more Red Dress in the future, as well as posting it a lot on LiketoKnowIt! Make sure to follow me on there if you are interesting in what I am posting.
Coming up with a great bio on Instagram can be difficult! When I am coaching women I see them struggling with what to include. My number one tip is to include searchable information with your name.
You can see I have my name and I included AZ blogger because I wanted it to be searchable for anyone looking for bloggers located in my state! This has helped me get lots of great opportunities. Then I talk about what it is that you can expect from me on my page. I also use beacons for all of my links, which is incredibly helpful!

I absolutely love all things fall, unfortunately we don’t get much of a fall where I live. I still love to decorate and do all the fun things that I possibly can! I created a fall bucket list for those who also love doing fun activities this time of year, no matter the weather!
Here is a small list to get started! I also absolutely love-
• Making S’mores
• Picking up Apple Cider foods and drinks
• Taking fall photos
• Decorating for fall
• Watch Hocus Pocus (for me this is a must do every year)
• Taking a hike
• Road trip to see the leaves change color
I hope this gave you some ideas on what to do this October! I love to cuddle up with a fall drink and a cozy blanket and watch a not scary Halloween movie and then going out and doing a fun fall activity!
I always get questions on what products I use for my makeup routine. I use a mix of high end and drugstore products, which I love! I do have eyelash extensions which helps cut down on the time and I also save on mascara, I don’t go through tubes fast.
I use a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products, they are definitely a favorite of mine! I think the quality is amazing.
If you are wanting to shop click here! I linked most of the products. You can also use code 15Chloe for your Tula products.
If you want a tutorial I would love to post either a blog post or Instagram reel!
This one was hard to title. One thing about putting little parts of your life on social media and the internet is you never know who is watching. It is probably my least favorite part. Occasionally I will get a rude comment here or there but I also get people who just want to creep.
The creeps are the worst. I hate seeing people looking at my stuff who are not looking with positive intentions. Anyone who creates a fake account for the purpose of looking at your stuff needs some serious help! Especially when it comes to my blog. My blog is a place for me to really talk about the things I like and things that I don’t necessarily put on Instagram. I first started a blog when I was in middle school. Nobody ever read it and it was basically like having an online diary. Now I have more of an audience and I have to be more careful about what it is that I’m posting.
Dating someone and having their exes like to look at my stuff will never not be beyond weird! Or someone who knows someone I know but doesn’t personally know me but just wants to look at my stuff…will never stop being strange to me.
If you feel compelled to keep track of people constantly that you don’t even know, I feel like it’s time to evaluate your own life. It’s still hard not to let it bother me. Thankfully the majority of my followers follow me because they like my style and product recommendations, or they are just other bloggers that are super supportive.
It got me thinking about who it is that supports our content. The other day on my stories I asked my fellow bloggers if they felt supported by the people in their life and if not who. It made me sad to see how many people said their partners, partners families and their friends didn’t support them. A lot of people could relate to it. My mom and friends have always been supportive of me and think that I work so hard on my content. Then there are other people who don’t understand and think it’s not a “real job” or like to make fun of it. It definitely hurts not getting that support and I know a lot of people give up on blogging because of it.
I like being able to tell the women who need it that if they don’t have a single person in their life who is supporting them, me and so many other women will be there to cheer them on. That is what I’ve found in my community. I have made great friends because of it. So it’s not just a job, it’s so much more.
Anxiety is something I have had for as long as I can remember, when I was a freshman in high school I finally had a name for the feeling. It wasn’t commonly talked about before that. Everyone who has anxiety has a different kind of anxiety, and it can manifest itself in different ways.
I have general anxiety and also social anxiety. When I go out I get easily overwhelmed. I get really bad sensory overload especially in places that are loud with a lot of people and a lot going on. By the end of the night I’m always exhausted. I have also been told I look unhappy, because I’m so in my head in the moment. I always worry about coming off as rude because I get quiet while trying to work through it.
The anxiety can manifest itself as bad physical symptoms as well which is always hard. I know a lot of people can relate to this.
I have a few ways that I cope with it. First, I take supplements for anxiety. There are a ton of good herbal options that you can get from Sprouts or Whole Foods. Second, I use breathing and meditation to try to calm down the feeling. There are so many great exercises such as tapping, yoga breathing, and other similar methods for relaxation. Last, I honestly like watching TV or reading a good book. Anything that is super distracting to the brain.
You aren’t alone if you struggle with this. Sometimes life also throws a lot at us and it may feel completely overwhelming at times. This last month has been the hardest in my life. Some days I have a hard time just leaving the house, but everyday I work on it. It just takes time.
