How quick did September go?! I feel like I always start my monthly favourites with that line because this year has gone super quick!
I am however very happy it’s October as it’s my birthday month. Not only is it my birthday but October is one of my favourite months because it’s halloween and the leaves are starting to turn all the beautiful autumn shades.
So let’s get started.
My first favourite is the book Paper Towns by John Green. John is the author who wrote The Fault In Our Stars which I adored so I had to pick this book up. Now I must admit I’m not much of a reader. I only read on holiday or if I’m doing train journeys everyday which I have been lately. This book is so good! I read it over 5 days but if you add it up it took just under 5 hours. They announced that Cara Delevinge is to play the lead girl and people weren’t too happy. I however think she’s a perfect Margo! Honestly give this book a try I’m sure you’ll love it.
My second favourite is the Boiing concealer by Benefit. I’ve been using this under my eyes for the last 2 months and really like it. I normally find with concealers that they crease under my eyes however this doesn’t. It goes on so smooth too, feels like satin.
My third favourite is Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner. I love this shampoo and conditioner! Having used Aussie for the past few years I didn’t think I’d find another brand that will make my hair feel soft until this came out. It has argon oil and sheer butter in, which has made a difference to my hair especially when it’s curly, as curly hair is naturally more drying. It’s super cheap too. I bought a 400ml bottle of each for a total of just over £7 so a good bit cheaper than Aussie.
The next favourite I’ve been loving this month is the holy grail amongst bloggers, Nars Sheer Glow foundation. Now I bought this back in May and I used it for a month before changing to Mac. I wasn’t a massive fan because I felt it went on lovely but after a few hours, the foundation on my chin wouldn’t be as smooth. So I stopped using it but then started again at the start of September and I now love it! It gives great coverage and a fab finish. I however have one downside. I’m not sure if it has caused me to breakout as since I’ve started using it I’ve started to get small spots on my chin, near my lip and on my cheek. Now it could be the foundation or the pollution of London as I’ve been interning there the past 3 weeks.
My last favourite is my Mulberry Alexa bag. Now I bought this for myself as a well done on my A Levels just over 3 years ago now. I’ve always loved it and used it a good bit, however I’ve used it almost every day this month. It’s a great size and I’ve been wearing it across my body a lot and it’s super comfy.
