As soon as I started blogging I couldnt wait to do monthly favourites. They’re one of the features I look forward to most on other peoples blogs! So at last heres is my first monthly favourites feature! For anyone who hasnt seen this sort of thing before it’s basically a round up of all the things you enjoyed using most in a month! I hope you all enjoy it as I absolutely loved putting it together!
- Home Sweet Home Yanke Candle: I am a Yankee Candle addict! There I said it! I think their selection of scents cant be beat! Home sweet Home is the perfect transition scent from Summer to Autumn. Its warm and spicy without being too christmassy! According to Yankee it smells of cinnamon, vanilla, baking spices and freshly poured tea. Now if that description doesnt make you want to go buy one I dont know what will! Its such a warm, comforting smell, perfect for these long evenings!
2. Rub Rub Rub: This is one of those products I used from Lush ages ago and kind of forgot about it! I ran out of my usual exfoiator and found this hidden in my Lush stash and fell back in love with it! I really enjoy a good scrub in the shower so I have been using this non stop all month. Its full of sea salt and has a very uplifting citrusy smell. Its not very harsh as far as sea salt exfoliators go and I feel so moisturised after. More gentle than lush’s Ocean Salt.
- Honey Buns: I love, love, love this shower gel! For me Philosophy can do no wrong. I adore so many of their products and use a lot of their shower gels. This one is always my Autumn favourite. It has the nicest comforting homely smell of honey and brown sugar and baking. Its not too sweet either, I find it very rich and warm. I also use the matching moisturiser after my shower. I stocked up on Honey Buns for half price at TK Maxx so keep a look out for it there!
Hair Clip: This is from the gift shop at the Horse and Jockey Hotel. I have been looking for a perfect hairclip for so long now and I finally found one! I usually just take a bit of my hair in the clip, back comb it a little and then sweep it up with the clip. Then hair is done for the day! It just looks so much prettier than using my usual old hair ties. Im using it in an outfit post I’ll be putting up later this week so you can see it in action then!
5. Wild Olive Bath Tea bags: These are the cutest little bath soaks ever! I love tea and I love baths so its a perfet combination! I also bought these in the Horse and Jockey gift shop but you can also order them online! They’re full of sea salt and essential oils. The scent I bought was lime, himalayan cedarwood and green tea. It was realy moisturising and calming. Perfect to use after a long day at college! I’m going to order more online once I’ve used these up!
YSL Fusion Ink Foundation: I’m always on the hunt for new foundations. I try an awful lot of them out as so many dont sit right on my skin or do shades light enough for me. I really think I hit the foundation jackpot with this though. There was so much hype when this was launched and even waiting lists for it. Crazy right?! But now that I’ve tried it I really do see what the fuss is about. I think its by far the best foundation I’ve tried in years. It matches my skin tone perfectly. The formula is so buildable that It can be used for a day of night wear. It has great staying power and helps mattify my always shiney skin. I have finally found my holy grail foundation!
Benefits’s Gimme Brow: I never used brow products until I picked this up on a whim. It has actually changed how I feel about the whole eyebrow grooming ordeal. Its quick and you can’t actually mess it up! I feel like it has given my whole face more defenition. So happy I tried it!
Sexy Mother Pucker: I have this in the shade Plum Jam and it’s such a lovely Autumn colour. I wear this to college all the time. Its very quick and wasy to apply. The kind of lip product you dont need a mirror to use. Its moistuising and the lasting power is better than I expected it to be. Saop and Glory can do no wrong!
Tangle Teezer. Finally I have one! I kept meaning to pick one of these up and always forgot! Now I dont know how I lived without it. I have really fine delicate hair that gets tangled very easily and falls out quite easily too. This just takes the battle out of brushing my hair every morning and I find much less of my hair comes out when I brush. It’s also used on dry and wet hair which I find really convinient! I can really see what all the hype was about when they first came out! I bought mine from Space NK. But most pharmacies do them.
