Monthly Favourites | October 2019

By 3rd November 2019 No Comments

Hello from the other side, 

It is hard to believe that it is November already and it is only 7 weeks until Christmas, I don’t know how I feel about it being so close to Christmas!? I am the unorganised last-minute Christmas shopper who you see flapping when there is only 1 week to go, and I always say I will be more organised and ready next year and it never happens. 

Here are a few of my beauty, fashion and lifestyle favourites which I have been enjoying during October. 

Beauty Favourites

  • No7 Maple Glow Palette 

I received this as a free gift for buying any two no7 makeup items I split my transaction into two, and I got two! I love the warm autumnal colours this is my daily go to make up palette it has everything I need. 

  • Victoria Secret Amber Romance Body Mist

This particular fragrance has a very unusual scent, the kind of scent that you will either love or hate. I love the warm and sweet scent of vanilla and amber, it is very autumnal and I find that it does last all day. 

  • Imperial Leather Shower gel

 I found myself spending a small fortune on shower gel from The Body Shop and Soap and Glory from Boots. I managed to pick these up with my weekly online grocery shopping for 90 pence a bottle, I couldn’t help myself and I had to buy a few of the different scents, and they do smell amazing!

 I love the fact that my skin is so soft, which is unusual for me at this time of the year. 

Moroccan Spa – Orange Blossom and Argon Oil

Lets Flamingle – Pink Lychee & Raspberry

Mermazing – Fijian  Water & Lotus Flower 

Fashion Favourites

One of the reasons I love Autumn is all of my beloved cosy cardigans can come out of the back of my wardrobe. Happy days! 

Now let’s talk about winter boots. I have had two pairs of Clark’s Chelsea boots for many years, and I decided it was time to treat myself to some shiny new boots.

After scouring the high street and online for a few weeks, I finally found the perfect pair of Chelsea boots the DrMartens Flora boots

 

They did take longer to break in than any other boots I have had before,  I did find them quite stiff to begin with, but now they’re the comfiest boots I have ever owned. 

When I am not at work, my go-to is a hoodie jumper with jeans or mostly my PJ bottoms! 

Lifestyle Favourites

Let us talk about food. For me, autumn is all about the slow cooker and cooking up tasty casseroles and soups. I love the fact I can chuck it all in on the morning, and it is ready to dish up when I get home from work.

The best thing is there is no fussing about trying to decide what to cook when you get back after a long day.

I am enjoying spending my evenings cosying up on the sofa with a soft blanket and lighting all my candles and settling down to watch TV I am currently watching  Homeland on Netflix I can’t get enough of it!

 

I would love to hear what your go-to favourite items are and what you recommend I watch next.
