Hi my beauty’s, hope you all had a good October and achieved your goals. I know I did. October for me was a relatively good month, it saw me move out of my moms and back to my home. I also got back into blogging more and smashed my monthly goals thanks to you lovely people who read and support my blog. How was your October?? Anyways here’s what I’ve loved the last month.
Another AW17 trend I’m loving is the return of the slogan. Why say what your thinking when you can wear it. I own numerous slogan tops from the risky sayings such as I have no tits (my fave ever). Don’t make the mistake of wearing these tops to work as I once did, for them to later introduce a uniform policy …oops. To the powerful quotes like this Boohoo top featured reminding me to always stay bad ass no matter what. I also love this ” if the love doesn’t feel like 90’s RnB I don’t want it” t-shirt. I’ve seen this top on my Pinterest feed and wanted it, I tried EBay with no such luck so when I was in River Island and so it you know it was going straight in my basket. I wouldn’t normally spend £16 on a t-shirt but cuz I’ve wanted this t-shirt for about a year I made that exception. I love how you can style a slogan t-shirt in numerous ways. (Pictured).
If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that I’ve been loving these boots. I’ve been after a pair of leopard boots since our dog chewed my last pair. So when I walked into River Island and saw these beauty’s I knew they were going straight in my basket. Even better there were reduced from £40 to £20. I love how comfy these boots are and have got a good grip for this time of year. They also look great and are sure to make me stand out from the crowd.
Navy Baker Boy Hat
Another month, another hat. If you haven’t noticed by now I love hats. Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few months you’ll surely have seen this style of hat all over your social media feeds. I love the style and colour of this hat.
Simple Eye Creams
Last month I tried hard to focus on a skin care routine. I normally use a Cleansing oil, toner, serum and moisturiser anyways but I added these eye creams into my routine. I use the Simple kind to eyes Revitalising Eye roll-on (green one) in the morning after my moisturiser. As this eye cream comes with a metal ball applicator roll on its easy to apply. It’s a refreshing eye gel that contains cucumber and other multi-vitamins. cucumbers well-known to reduce puffiness and wake up tired eyes. I suffer from dry eyes and find that applying this in a morning really helps soothe my eyes and make me look more awake.
I apply the simple Kind to eyes soothing eye balm at night as this is a thicker consistency than the roll-on. This eye cream helps reduce puffiness and keeps the delicate eye area well moisturised.
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25HR with Comfort Serum
At the start of October I ran out of my L’Oreal Infallible foundation (my everyday foundation), so i turned to my samples/testers which I’ve collected over the past year from magazines. I normally save these for on my holidays as i find this is the perfect time to try out new products and it saves space in your luggage. One of the sample i had was this foundation (well i had two). This foundation is full coverage which i loved, was easy to apply and blend, and moisturising. It didn’t look too cakey and had a dewy effect. I even got complimented on how good my skin looked while wearing this foundation. It also lasted about 8 hours. It also contains an SPF 20 which is ideal even in winter make sure you wear an SPF. I definitely will be buying this foundation when my samples run out.
Tassimo Coffee Machine & Coffee
After Five long months without my coffee machine i finally got it back out of storage and i cant tell you how excited i was about having a coffee in the morning. Its like having your own costa’s in your house. If you like coffee and costa’s id recommend investing in a tassimo coffee machine. If you like Bailey’s and coffee, i would try the bailey’s coffee you can buy for this machine. it doesn’t contain alcohol unfortunately but it means you can still have the taste without the consequences (if you’ve ever had a bailey’s induced hangover then you know). If your on a budget but still like instant flavoured coffees then the Nescafe ones are really good especially the toffee nut latte flavour and the mocha.
MindHunter Netflix Series
If you’ve got an Netflix account then i would definitely recommend giving the Mindhunter Series a watch. The series is set in the 1970’s and follows two FBI agents as they delve into the psychology of murder and get up close and personal with real-life monster. If your interested in crime and psychology, then give this a watch. I was skeptical at first about giving this series a watch but me and my partner binge watched it within a week.
What were your October favourites and what are your reccomendations to watch on Netflix??
