October Favourites 2014!

Here I am again, doing a monthy favourites post 10 days into the new month. Better late then never, am I right!? So as you all know, autumn is upon us which means colder weather, darker evenings and all things that make this season one on my favourites! This month I have brought back a lot of old items I used to use and quite a few new. Let me know if you use any of these products! Enjoy reading <3


  • Barry M Natural Glow Palette - I had never really been into eyeshadow until this past month. I recently got this palette from Barry M and I love it! It has the perfect amount of colours in for a beginner like me.
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - #honestyhour: I really didn't like the Wake Me Up range for a while, it was too shimmery for me and I found it didn't work well on my skin. I was looking for an under eye concealer in my collection and stumbled across this product once again and decided 'eh lets give it another go' and for some strange reason, it worked perfectly. I don't know whether my skin is in a different condition than before or whether it was the way I had been applying it - who knows! It works really well and I've been using it to cover my under eye darkness.


  • Revlon Lip Butter 001 - I love this lip butter. It is the perfect colour for autumn and feels so nice on your lips! I love the way you can build up the pigmentation from looking so natural to a dark berry colour.
  • Bourjois 'chocolate' Bronzing Powder - recently I have been contouring and bronzing my face everyday as a part of my makeup routine. I love the natural effect this bronzer gives, its not really dark and cakey like other bronzers on sale. I'm looking forward to trying out the highlighting powder too, hopefully it doesn't fail to impress!


  • MUA Power Pout in Crazy In Love - I mention the MUA lip crayons in a lot of my blog posts, probably because of how great they are for the price (£3!!). Again, this colour is perfect for the autumn season and goes so well with any makeup look or outfit. I have been using this a lot after school and at the weekends and I love love love it!
  • Sally Hansen Wine Not - this nail colour is probably the only one I wear during this time of the year. I love the colour, it has touches of shimmer in which looks so beautiful. It also comes in a big bottle and has lasted me over a year.


  • XC Source Angled Shadow Brush - Back to the XC Source brushes! I have been using this brush a lot recently when applying my eye shadow to the inner corners, crease and outer v of my eyelid. It collects a lot of product and is one of my favourite brushes out of my collection.
  • Glade Blackberry Frost Candle - this candle has been burning non stop this month. I love the Glade winter candle collection as they look and smell so nice. Funnily enough, this candle ran out just before I started writing this post - sad times. However, I will definitely be repurchasing! 


  • The Vampire Diaries - oh my! This programme will be the end of me I swear, I think I am addicted to it - damn you netflix! For a few months now I have been hooked to the vampire diaries, I'm trying to watch them all so I can catch up to the new series but I am only on season 2!
  • Girl Meets World - I am not embarrassed to say this has probably been one of my favourite shows over the past month. I have literally recorded ever episode and am in love with Sabrina Carpenters voice.. so much talent! 
  • Evermoor - I love this show. It has got such a good story line and the characters are perfect.. *cough* George Sear *cough*. But seriously, it is such a great series and yes, I do still watch disney channel =^_^= NO SHAMEEEE 

What are your October favourites? I would love to know.
Happy November!

Keep smiling :)
