Monthly Favourites | October 2013


Well, the spookiest month of the year is done and dusted and we're creeping ever closer to Christmas, I've even started my Christmas shopping in an attempt to be super organized this year. It was a bit of a struggle to pick out my favourites for this month because I've been using the same old same old (Blame the fact that I had to pay my car insurance!) and I haven't even had any time to revisit any golden oldies that can make it back on to my favourites list so I've been very uninspired with my make up choices but now the party seasons coming up I'm ready to start shaking it up!

I hate to admit it but I'm as slack as they come when it comes to protecting my hair from heat but would spend hours trying to get the most volume I possibly can out of it and that's where L'Oreal Elnett Volume Heat Protect Spray comes in. You can kill two birds with one stone with this baby, it protects from any heat damage and boy does it add volume. If I spray my hair with this and then dry it upside down I end up looking like something out of Hairspray! When the weather changes my skin really does suffer and it doesn't know whether it wants to be oily or dry but this Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask really does help to calm it down. I can really see a difference in the tone and clarity of my skin once I've rubbed this off with the little sponge that comes with it, the only thing that lets this down is the smell! Another little skincare saviour that I've been swearing by this month is Origins Ginzing. I'm definitely not at my best in the mornings but this really helps, once I've applied my skin looks wide awake and raring to go even if I'm not! Like I said before I've been very unadventurous with my make up this month and MAC Runway Hit (review here) has been my go to lipstick, it's such an easy nude colour to wear and the Retro Matte formula is perfect for a day at work because it's so long wearing - no matter how many cups of tea you drink this isn't budging! I've never used a powder highlighter before and Topshop Crescent Moon is the perfect starting point, it's easy to apply and the colour is gorgeous. Pop this on your cheekbones and you'll look glowing!

I am definitely ready to get a bit more adventurous this month and be a bit less complacent with my makeup choices, it's good to change it up! What were you loving in October?
