The top finds from September!

Hey friends! Happy hump day! I can't believe September is over and a new month is beginning already, I feel like September lasted literally 12 seconds. What's up with that?!

October is one of my favorite months though. I love Halloween and everything that comes with it. It's such a fun month! 

Whenever a new month begins and an old one ends I like to reflect back on my brand content to get a feel about what you guys enjoyed. A lot of times this helps me plan new content for the upcoming months. This also helps me share things that you guys actually want to hear about. It's so important to me to continue to connect with you guys, after all that's why I'm here and that's why I love blogging so much. 

So without further ado I wanted to reflect today on the top purchased items from last month and also share some of my favorites as well! 

10. Y'all really seem to enjoy my try on sessions this month that I share on Instagram, which made me so happy because I really do enjoy doing them with you guys I feel like I'm just trying on clothes with a friend. One of the top purchased clothing items this month was the super cozy and soft fleece jacket that I found at Abercrombie & Fitch. The jacket is so cozy versatile and comes in tuns of color options for reference I got a size small. So I feel like the jacket is definitely true to size, but if you think you'll be wearing top underneath of it I would suggest going up one size.

9. Moving on to home decor, I shared one of my favorite cozy throws for the upcoming cooler months. It's under $20 comes in tons of color options and is so yummy and soft. It's no surprise that's so many of you snagged one. I love that you guys share a throw pillow and throw blanket obsession with me! 

8. Sticking with the home decor trend, a lot of you all snagged one of my favorite tiered trays when I shared them at such a steal. I love this tray so much because it's so versatile and I can decorate it for the seasons. It also feels such an empty space that I have on my Island Bar but can also be used in bathrooms on tables and on Buffets. If you love to decorate for holidays but don't like to go out a tray similar to this one is a great place to start!

7. A few weeks ago I did an Amazon try on session and it was probably my best one to date. Lots of you guys have been wanting to order from Amazon for a while you just worried about quality. So I snagged lots of items in deals to find the best ones for you guys. I really do love these comfy tee's They come in tons of colors and there is still coming in at just 15 bucks. I really love to wear these with bralettes because they are super cute off the shoulder.

6. It will probably come as no surprise to you that my favorite sweater leggings are on this list. I share them a ton of because I really do love them so much! They're so comfy and cozy and I'm all about that life LOL. I got my normal size small in these because I feel they're made a bit big. However I don't feel that they stretch out and no matter how many times you wash them they stay super soft, that's why I snagged them in three colors! 

5. Back to Amazon, I shared this cozy pink pullover sweater and I'm absolutely obsessed. It is so soft, is fleece lined, and perfect for chilly fall days and nights. It comes in several different colors, and I got an extra small for reference in sizing.

4. Okay I think I can conclude that y'all really love Amazon since so many Amazon finds are on this list. It's no secret I love love love Zella leggings. However they can be pricey, so I was really excited to find a more budget-friendly option. The leggings are incredibly similar and made of almost the same fabric. If you're looking for a great pair of black leggings that suck and Tuck these are made for you. And they're just under 23 bucks! And like seemingly everything else on Amazon they come in tons of different colors. I got a medium to be safe, and they fit just fine. However if I ordered another pair I would get a small. Just because they are a little loose around my ankles.

3. It's pretty safe to say y'all just love everything but especially holidays like I do. Last year I shared this amazing Garland I snagged at Walmart for such a steal. By the time I shared it though it was sold out online and in basically every store. So when I saw it was back this year I knew I had to share. So that y'all didn't miss out on the deal. It's so well made for the cost and it's perfect if you have a big space and need more than one Garland strand. If you've been looking definitely snag this one because it will sell out and like me you'll probably be kicking yourself for not getting more. 

2. I snagged this Buffalo check doormat for underneath my rug by my front door. I love the layered rug look right now and well Buffalo check anything. I love buffalo check because I feel like you can use it in Fall decor and Halloween decor and even in Christmas decor if you're crafty enough. So this is literally a purchase that will get you through all the holidays. 

1. And the number one purchased item in September from the Glam Farmhouse readers was........


Yes slippers but I honestly can't say that I'm surprised because like I said I know you all are about that cozy comfy life like me, I got these cozy slippers on Amazon and have literally been wearing them 24/7 since. They're so soft!! And they were perfect as my slipper collection. Yes I said slipper collection. It's getting really all I feel like I have more slippers than I do actual shoes and I think that says a lot about me as a person. LOL I got a medium in these slippers and I normally a size 7 and 1/2 to an 8 in shoe size. I feel like these are the perfect fit. So if you want to feel like you're walking on a cloud definitely snag these!!

So there you have it guys! The top 10 items purchased from y'all in September. It's safe to say we are a lot alike, and we all like our comfies, and our throw blankets! 

Looking forward to a really fun and great October. I have lots of fun things planned for the month and I can't wait to share with you guys. I can't thank you enough for your continued support and kindness. It seriously mean so much to me and I wish I could give you all a big ole hug to THANK YOU!!! 


The Secret to making pumpkins last through the season!

Hey guys! Yesterday on Instagram I shared a few tips for keeping your real pumpkins alive
throughout the Fall season! And by throughout the fall season, I mean at least until the end of Thanksgiving.

 I actually discovered this trick a few years ago and have been doing it for the past 2 years.
My pumpkins always last through the season and I'm always able to feed them to the Sheep when the
season is over because they're still fresh.

I prefer this method to using Vaseline or bleach for that reason.
The Sheep like to eat them and I can't  feed them to them if they're covered in bleach and Vaseline.
So this way I'm able to keep them looking fresh and pretty for a long time and they can still eat them.
It's a win-win!

So there are a few different ways you can keep them alive and looking fresh for a longer amount of time.

Step 1-  as soon as you buy your pumpkins at the store and bring them home,
bring them into your kitchen and put them in the sink.
I always have a good scrub brush on hand and love my scrub brush from Grove collaborative.
I use Mrs. Meyers apple cider dish soap but you can use any dish soap you have on hand.
After you scrub your pumpkins wipe them down with a paper towel until they're dry.
Make sure they're good and dry before you move on to step 2.

Step 2-  now that your pumpkins are for the most part clean, you can do one of two things.
You can soak them in about 1 cup of bleach and water until they're covered for about an hour.  
This will sanitize the pumpkin and kill any bacteria still living on it.
Bleach is a great way to keep your pumpkins alive longer if you won't be eating them we're
feeding them to animals at the end of the season.
I knew I had to find another option.

Drum roll please.......

Olive oil!!!

So I take about 1 teaspoon or tablespoon depending on the size of your pumpkins and
how many you're doing, and a clean cloth and wipe the pumpkins with olive oil
It doesn't matter what kind. Any olive oil will do.
Olive oil acts as a protective barrier and for some reason
I noticed the squirrels don't bother my pumpkins at all when they're covered in olive oil.
I use olive oil for lots of things so it only made sense to try it out on pumpkins to.
Another plus to using olive oil besides just helping them last a little longer,
the olive oil gives them a little extra shine and brings out the beautiful colors!

That’s it you're done!  

See! Who knew it would be so easy to keep your pumpkins alive and help them last a little longer
so you can enjoy them all through October and into November!
If you have any tips or tricks for keeping calm he's alive longer I would love to hear them!
Drop a comment for me below or message me on Instagram I love hearing from you guys!  
if you've tried this method already I'd love to hear what you think about it and if it works for you!

Happy fall ya'll!
