OCTOBER FAVOURITES 2015

 Okay so once this evening is over, we can start worrying about Christmas... how on earth is it November tomorrow?! The only good thing about that is that we're getting closer and closer to the festive period, which I love! Before we get too ahead of ourselves though, I thought I'd so a quick round up of everything I've been loving this past month or so!



BEAUTY

So last month I put the NYX lip liner pencil in Mauve in my favourites post, in which I said I loved pairing it with MAC Twig... this month I have not stopped wearing this shade, and every time I do someone compliments me on it! The formula and finish are lovely, the colour beautiful and the wear is fairly long lasting, too!

Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm
I saw Lily from Lily Pebbles pick this up at the end of September so just before I left for uni I thought I'd give a go, too, and I'm so glad I did! If, like me, you don't own many dewy foundations or you try not to wear foundation too often, then this is the product for you; it gives a lovely glowy, awake look to the skin (ideal for the winter time) without making you look too sweaty or shiny, which was my biggest fear! What's more the formula is light and absorbs quickly into the skin, plus it feels like you're applying moisturiser, and too much hydration is definitely not a thing!

Snazaroo Face Paint - Girls
Whilst it annoys me that this has been labelled the 'girls' set, this face paint has come in super handy in the past month... not only for halloween but also for the dressing up that has gone on since being at Uni! The quality of this isn't bad either and for the price, I'm super impressed by the number of colours you get as well as a sponge and brush!

FASHION

H&M Suede Skirt
I don't know what it is about this skirt, but I just love it. I feel very blogger in it, if I'm allowed to coin that term, but it is still perfect for everyday wear, although I've also been loving wearing it out! The colour just screams Autumn and I would be lying if I said I didn't love the whole suede trend this season... my perfect skirt for this time of year is certainly this one!

New Look Suede Top
Again, like the skirt, this was featured in my A/W Haul post, but I love this too much to not ramble on about it again! The fit, the colour, the material - it ticks all the right boxes, not only to be on trend, but I know that I will wear this throughout the year as it makes for a great day-to-night item!


LIFESTYLE
Demi Lovato - Confident
This has been on my Spotify repeat for the last couple of weeks - an album that is perfect for any emotion, be it inspiration, sadness, happiness or all of the above! I actually really like Demi and what her message is, but most of all she has a bloody great voice; what more do you need?!

Adele - Hello
How could this phenomena not be mentioned? I have been waiting for Adele's new music for a long time and in my opinion this didn't disappoint; I can't wait for what her album, 25, is going to bring to the table!

Autumn Colours
Rusty oranges, burgundy reds, dark greens, navy blues. All of the autumn colours just resinate with me, and I don't think that's just because my birthday is in October!

My Flat Mates
It's strange to think that I've been at Uni for 4 weeks - time has flown by but at the same time it feels like ages since I left good ol' Essex! Either way, I definitely wouldn't have been able to get through October without this crazy lot... 

I love October as a month in general (I may be biased!) but overall it's been a whirlwind of a month full of new experiences and a lot of laughter! Let me know what you've been loving recently... Happy Halloween, have a fab weekend!
