September Non-Beauty Favourites

I quite enjoyed doing a "non-beauty favourites" post last month, and as I’ve got a few non-beauty favourites again, I've decided to carry it on!

01.   Doughnuts // Who doesn’t love doughnuts?! I’ve been a bit obsessed with eating them this month – give me a Reeses Pieces peanut butter doughnut over a chocolate bar any day! The Reeses ones are by far my favourite, I swear I’ve had at least one a week the whole month of September!

02.   Starbucks Iced Cappuccino // I’ve become a little completely obsessed with these! I love sipping on one these as a morning treat before work (actually, I'll have one of these any morning really), its sweet chocolate-y (I think) caffeine goodness at its finest! Seriously, the next time you're in Tesco/Asda/wherever grabbing your almond milk, pick up one of these too... you can thank me later!

03.   Thor Pop Vinyl // I’m totally in to collecting the Vinyl figures at the moment and Thor always seems to be sold out! The last time I popped in to Forbidden Planet they had one Thor figure left, he was in my hands quicker than you could say “ANOTHER!”.

04.   Zara basic tees // Zara basic tees are just my favourite thing to wear right now. I pick a new one up every time I walk in there, dangerous I know! The material is so soft and the tees are just the right amount of “baggy/oversized” and they’re so comfortable! You can never have too many basic tees right?!

05.   Orphan Black // I heard a few YouTubers bang on about this TV series on Netflix, I was pretty bored one morning so decided to see what they were all harping on about… I’m now hooked! It’s kinda weird and the lead actress can’t do an English accent to save her life, but it’s quite addictive, you want to know what’s going to happen next!

06.   Mini MK Bag // If you read my post on my new little baby (link here) this will come as no surprise to you that its popping up in my monthly “non-beauty” favourites. This bag is so tiny and cute and scrummy! I use her all the time – if you had a MK as cute as this, wouldn’t you want to wear it to death too? Lol Side note:- having a bag this small also means that I don’t horde a ton of receipts/crap in it like my other bags!

Hope all you lovelies are having a great week… I can’t believe the change in the weather, where has the October sunshine gone from the weekend?? xo

September Beauty Favourites

So another month bites the dust and we are now officially in Autumn...although the weather hasn't quite made up its mind it seems. As I’m typing this, its glorious sunshine outside and actually quite warm!

I haven't got too many beauty favourites this month as most of the products I mentioned in my last favourites are still going strong! But there have been a few things I've been loving...

01. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream // This was a new purchase for me this month; I had run out of my Clarins Eye Contour Gel and wanted to try something different. I’ve used this eye cream in the past and remembered loving it back then so thought I’d give this one a go again – also, it has “hydrating” in the title, what’s not to love about that?! So far so good, its super moisturising and no stingy eyes!

02. Mac Lipstick in Hue // This really is the perfect “my lips but better shade”! I’ve been reaching for this one allot this month, for when I want a lil somethin’ on the lips but I don’t want to go too OTT. As it’s a glaze it’s also quite hydrating on my lips.

03. Benefit Eye Bright // I’ve needed some help in the eye department lately (actually I’ve needed help with getting out of bed in general!). I’ve been feeling super tired this month – it’s been pretty heavy at work! So anything that can make me look more awake I NEED! One swipe of this along my waterline and my eyes instantly look less red and more “ready to face the day”!

04. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel Mask // Sometimes my skin just needs a little clear out and a refresh. I love using this product for that. It has fruit enzymes in it which are great for getting rid of all the build-up of crap, dead skin cells and whatever else I’ve got lurking in my pores! I leave this on for 10 – 15 minutes and wash off with a muslin cloth. It doesn’t irate my skin at all, so no beetroot face after I take this off! It also smells incredible. I would definitely recommend trying this!! I think I picked this sample up as a freebie with a magazine, it’s lasted me quite a while actually. When this runs out I think ima have to invest in the full size tube!

05. Body Shop Coconut Body Milk // I've been trying to moisturise my body more, especially as we're coming in to Autumn, my skin always gets dryer in the colder months so i've decided to get a head start on tackling that! I love that this moisturiser is in a spritz bottle, it makes it so quick and easy to apply and the moisturiser dries in so quick! I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this in a favourites before (and for good reason!) it also makes my skin smell incredible - i've even had compliments on my "perfume" (I pointed them in the direction of the Body Shop!).

06. Shcwarzkopf Collagen Big Volume Mousse // I have long but super fine hair with pretty much zero volume, I found this in my stash and decided to start using it again, anything to help add volume to my main! I've been using this after every time I've washed my hair and I have to say, this really does help! When I use this on my hair it feels noticeably thicker and definitely looks more full! It does take a while for my hair to dry when using this but its a price i'm willing to pay for thicker fuller hair!

Hope all you beauties are having a glorious weekend!... I highly recommend a Starbucks iced cappuccino in the morning! xo
