October Favourites

Monday, November 05, 2012

I can't believe October has already come and gone, this year really has gone so quickly! I'm really excited about November, the lead up to Christmas is my favourite time of year and I'm already getting excited about the Holiday season. -Is it too soon? Here's the things I really enjoyed in October...

Benefit Sugarbomb
I tucked this blush to the back of a drawer a few months ago and recently rediscovered it. I get quite pale in the colder months so it's been an essential in my makeup routine this month!
YSL Parisienne
Although this perfume is almost a summery scent, I've been wearing it a lot this month, it's really nice and sweet so it's not too heavy for everyday use.
Glade Spiced Apple Scented Candle
This is one of my favourite candles ever for the Autumn/Winter. I went though about 7 of them last year, and I won't be surprised if I do the same this year!
Revlon lipstick in 'Black Cherry'
This is my staple lipstick at the moment! I love berry coloured lipsticks and this one is the perfect shade for my skin tone right now.
Berry Coloured Nail polishes
I'm not sure where I got this nail polish (I think it was a Christmas gift last year), but any berry toned polishes were top of my list in October - and probably will be this month too. They're so pretty!
Boots Botanics Shine Infusion Serum
This serum was a savior for my split ends last month, my hair has been really dry and lack luster lately, and the serum really gives it a bit of a shine boost and makes it feel lovely and silky.
Mint Carmex
I'm not a big fan of anything that smells/tastes like cherry, so the original Carmex isn't my cup of tea. The mint one however is amazing, I have it in my bag all the time and it's a life saver when my lips are chapped!

Have a lovely day and a great Bonfire Night!

  13. hello, I wasn't sure if I should leave the comment here, as you said in Better Blogger Network about feedbacks on your blog. here it is (you can delete this after you read it.):
    your blog is very clean and organize, a good design, which I always like in blogs. and large and well photographed photos works really well.
    I think you need an about page although the blogger side item does says it all. I like your header art but the name doesn't really tell me much, maybe an explanation of the name? I'm always curious about why and how people choose their blog names plus, having an about page gives you an excuse to introduce yourself in a nicer way.
    a label gadget is also useful. I like to browse by labels. And archive as well.
    having 3-5 posts on the main page is best as you don't want the reader to keep strolling and strolling. also having fewer posts at a time keeps the loading time down as well. some people, like me, still have slow internet access.
    and, if your post is rather long, you can use the 'read more' option.
    these are my opinion as a blog reader and not a designer although once upon a time I did design blogs.
    hope these are useful to you somehow.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate it so much!
