November Favourites

Guys it's nearly Christmas. I am so excited this year it's ridiculous. I think it's because I have my own house to decorate. Anyway my favourites this month were pretty easy to compile because I have been reaching for them soo much. So without further ado my favourites...

Too Faced Melted Matte

Liquid lipsticks are pretty much the main thing to grace my lips these days. I just can't get enough of them. When I saw the colours and the packaging of the Too Face melted mattes I wanted them immediately. I patiently waited for them to be released in the UK because I am not about those customs charges. I then started reading some not so positive reviews and decided that maybe I should save my pennies. However, I could not stop thinking about two of the colours so I decided to be reckless, take the plunge and make them mine.

Simply Be Fleece Snuggle Top

Along with the Scarf neck sweater I did a post on the other day I was also kindly sent the  Pretty Secrets Fleece Snuggle Top*. As you may know I pretty much live in my pyjamas. Chronic illness means that getting dressed in outside clothes is not an every day thing. If I am in the house there is a 99.9% I am in pyjamas or at a push leggings. I am all about being comfy and cosy. The two most important things in life so I obviously had to check out Simply Be's Loungewear selection.

Fudge Urban Dry Shampoo

I'm a huge dry shampoo fan. Showering is beyond exhausting and I could do without all that pain and fatigue. This means dry shampoo is the best invention in the whole world next to hats. I managed to train my hair to last for about 5 days before it needs washing but dry shampoo is still a must to keep it looking like I actually do something with it.

Simply Be Scarf Neck Sweater

I've been meaning to do outfit posts for ages. It's been a mix of a lack of confidence, being awkward in front of the camera (unless it's a selfie, I'm boss at selfies) and not having anyone to take photos that has held me back. When I got a lovely email from Clare asking if I wanted to try some bits from Simply Be Jumper range I decided this was the push I needed to start outfit posts. I went to Cardiff for the day with my dad and dragged him to the park to get some photos. He absolutely loved his job as photographer and we are now planning some more locations for outfit shots.

Lancome Grandiose Mascara

I've been meaning to type up this post forever. I've had the images sat in my drafts since the summer. I fell in love with the packaging of the grandiose range when I picked up the liquid eyeliner back in July. I was tempted by the mascara but couldn't really justify the £25 price tag that came with it.

Then we went out to France in August and I found a cute gift set with the full-size mascara, a pencil eyeliner, and a mini bi-facil cleanser for £18 (I'm pretty sure that's how much it was). I thought they'd marked the price wrong as they were selling the mascara on its own for £22.50. I instantly snapped it up and am so pleased I did.

Shit Ollie Says #1

As you all know I have a brother (well I have two). Ollie is 17 and just an all round ridiculous human being. I honestly can't believe some of the shit that comes out of his mouth. However, this does mean he provides constant entertainment and there is never a dull moment when he is around. He seriously makes me laugh until I cry on a regular basis. I started to keep note of all the weird and hilarious things he said and after a lil bit of encouragement he agreed to let me write them up and share them with you.

Stila Star Light Star Bright Highlighter Palette

I haven't been feeling well for a while and last week it all kind of hit with force hence the lack of posts. I have not been that ill in a very long time. I couldn't keep anything down and had to take an emergency trip to the Drs for an anti sickness jab. I lived on ice lollies and crackers for a week and felt extremely sorry for myself. Luckily I had ordered this Stila beauty to cheer myself up. It is such a stunning palette.

Loose Tea From Whittards

I may love coffee but my first love was always tea. You cannot beat a good cup of tea. I have so many types that my tea cupboard is nearly overflowing. I have various flavoured green teas (caramelised green tea is soo good), loose teas, tea bags and ALL the peppermint tea for the damn nausea. I am obsessed with loose tea at the moment. You just cannot beat the flavour you get from a loose tea.

Beanies Flavoured Instant Coffee

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good hot drink. My day is not complete without several cups of tea or coffee and I definitely cannot start my day without a coffee. I need the warm hug in a mug to not be a complete bitch to anyone that crosses my path. I was chatting to Beanies on Twitter the other day and mentioned I wanted to try the gingerbread one and they sent me a few sachets of various flavours to try. Seriously how sweet?

Anyway here's what I was loving in October.
