In The Shop: October’s Crazy Prints + Cozy Home Activities

october’s grey fall skies and sidewalks are most beautiful when spiked with bright fall leaves…and bold fall fitnesswear. We can’t wait to jam our feet into a brand new pair of these fun, printed Stella McC’s and hit the pavement!

This month in The Shop you’ll find a much bolder, brighter collection of goods than last month’s neutral, norm-core TCM ‘starter kit’. October is all about the printed legging, bold lip, and neon-adjacent nail color. A deep purple matte lip in a non-toxic formula is our beauty uniform this fall!

We’re also breaking out the fun and cozy cooking activities to do at home, from making your own kombucha to a charming cooking set that helps you make old world style hand-made pasta. And then of course, there’s the candy. Sweets from Quin are all-natural and made by hand in Portland, Oregon – delicious and pretty much a hipster must.

For the home, we’ve found a few incredible decor pieces that feel just a little bit spooky, and still totally obsession-worthy. Brass and ceramic wind chimes, anyone? The mysterious sound of chimes could be the opening of a Halloween thriller, or the opening entryway of a cool guest house in Venice. Either way, we’re loving it.

This month’s October spin on The Shop, our new curated collection of items from our favorite online retailers, is one we know our readers will love. We hope you’ll discover something new to help you “live well.” Check in with us each month as we share a new set of Chalkboard approved beauty picks, fitnesswear styles, wellness items and other things we love. Have something you’d love to see in The Shop? We want to hear about it! We love getting the word out about the natural beauty brands we love most and those holistic supplements you might not be hearing about anywhere else.

Watch for new additions to The Shop later this month when we share Guest Editor Kristen Bell’s favorite things and a slew of Halloween costume options that may or may not be appropriate for the gym.
