October Favourites 2017

My favourite month of the year is here!!! So I decided to quickly type up some of my October favourites.

The first category is skin care and body care. This month I have been obsessed with masks, as the cold season is approaching and the wind is becoming rougher and rougher on our skin. I have been using the Freeman Diamond Mineral Rinse Mask. The particles in this mask always leave my skin glowing and feeling fresh. Along with the mask, I have been using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and the moisturizing face masks. They go hand in hand.

I have fallen in love with the Body Shop Strawberry lotion. It smells amazing and leaves your skin incredibly smooth.

Let’s move on to makeup. To be honest, I haven’t tried a lot of new makeup products this past month, but the Benefit They’re Real lipstick in Nude Scandal has been my go-to shade. Also, whenever I wanted to go for a more natural makeup look I chose the Maybelline 920 Nude Lust shade or the clear side of the Maybelline Superstay 24 hours.

For hair care, I have been using the TRESemme Shape and Memory Foam, which gives me perfectly shaped waves and makes my hair appear more voluminous. The GHD Advanced Split Ends Therapy really gets the job done. I use it even when I don’t have split ends and it prevents my hair from any damage.

In the fashion department – I have been wearing hats this month. At the beginning of the month I have placed an order on ASOS  and the next day I received a pink velvet hat, a simple black one, and a grey beret – really in at the moment.

Now it’s the random favourites’ turn.

BBC’s Radio 1 has been another favourite of mine this month. Maybe you figured that out from my last blog post. It gives me energy in the morning, on my way to Uni.

The London Evening Standard has saved me from boredom as well whenever I got back home after a long day at Uni. Ok, you get it, I am a journalism student, and this is what I like to do with my spare time.

Pinterest. I love looking at all the pictures and creating boards. However, my boyfriend thinks that I am slowly turning into a 40-year-old who looks at pictures of cute interior design ideas and new recipes.  Guilty!

Should I even mention that the weather is one of my favourites? It gives me such a cosy feeling, snuggling with my blankets in the softest bathrobe, drinking a hot cup of tea and watching a TV show with my boyfriend.

Talking about TV shows, my boyfriend’s sister, Madi, told us about the Blacklist. We are so hooked. You should definitely watch it!

Anyway, these have been some of my October favourites and please excuse the over usage of the word ‘favourite’.

I am thinking of posting an October playlist, with all the songs I have been listening to this month.Let me know what you think.

Have the loveliest autumn and I will see you in my next blog post!
