2015 Favourites: October

Hello again,

I genuinely can’t believe how quickly October has passed. However, I’m not that sad about it as November is my birthday month! (Shout out to all the November babies out there).

Anyway, I better get on with telling you what I’ve loving this month…

Matalan Handbag

For the weeks leading up to university and even when I started university, I was still looking for a perfectly sized and shaped handbag to use. Before I bought this one, I was using a Lipsy one that I received for my birthday last year. I bought my new bag from a Matalan Clearance Store for just £6. It’s the perfect size for my folders and books, can handle a lot of weight and has a front pocket for items that would get lost in the main compartment: cards, uni ID, keys…


Maybelline Baby Lips Balm

I’m pretty sure I bought this lip balm about a year and a half ago – Is that gross? Anyway, I remember using it obsessively for about 3 months before I forgot about it and starting using Vaseline again. However, for the past month or so I’ve been using it everyday as my lips are in an awful condition. They’re so cracked and dry ALL THE TIME. Maybe it’s the cold weather. Or the dirty London air. Now, I don’t tend to leave the house without it; it’s also great to apply before putting on lipstick to stop your lips drying out as much.


‘The Girl On The Train’ by Paula Hawkins

I want say too much about this book here because 1) I have people who post spoilers and 2) If I tell you how amazing the book is here then you won’t go and read the book review that I wrote. Hint hint. I would highly recommend that you read this! I was lucky enough to pick it up from a car boot sale for £1.50.

Primark Tartan Scarf

I’ve definitely been wearing this scarf almost everyday. It’s everything you should expect from a scarf: comfy, thick, long but not long enough to trail across the floor, autumnal coloured. I think it cost me just £5, which is an investment really.


Real Techniques Stippling Makeup Brush 

I bought this makeup brush from Amazon for around £7. Luckily, I had a £5 gift voucher to use so it only cost me £2 really. I’ve wanted this brush for so long and I have not been disappointed with it. It applies foundation so evenly with prevents your face from looking cake it. Some may say that owning this makeup brush is a necessity…


MUA Lipstick 

I have been wearing this lipstick almost everyday since I bought it for just £1 in my local Superdrug store. It’s a deep berry red shade, which is actually titled ‘Shade 01’. What a fascinating name for a lipstick. Go and buy it. I also bought a shade which is slightly more purple from Makeup Revolution. However, I’m not loving that as much. Maybe I’ll warm to it.


Boohoo Camel Boyfriend Coat

This is probably my absolute favourite of this month. I originally wanted a similar coat from New Look but it had sold out online and in store by the time I decided I was going to buy it. However, I did find an almost identical one off of the Boohoo website – the Libby coat. I’m very pleased with it! I really love this colour for a coat, every time I saw something wearing one I’d think “ooooh she looks nice.” Now I finally have my own – hurray!
