Well hello to you my reader chums! I say this about every month but I'm pretty sure September swept by way too quickly with 2017 going along at a very fast pace. The month of September had a few exciting memories and with that, I've put together my favourite things.
Here are my September favourites...
Nyx's matte liquid lipstick in 'Rome'
I have an obsession with all things lipstick and will be that girl to buy 25 of the same shade just to try out different formulations. A range of lipsticks I adore are Nyx's matte liquid lipsticks and I've raved about them on various posts. The past month, I've been reaching for the shade 'Rome' a lot. When it comes to nude lipsticks, I'm a sucker for a dusky pink, whether its dark or light, it has my name on. 'Rome' is the ideal autumnal dusky pink, with that slight darkness to it that makes it look more than a nude lipstick. It applies with ease, has a creamy texture and sits for hours on the lips. Nyx's liquid lipstick in 'Rome' is definitely going to be a staple for the rest of autumn.
Cooler weather means the jumpers come back out. Like lipsticks, jumpers are one of my biggest obsessions that when autumn hits I can't wait to dig into my collection. The weather hasn't been crazily cold or anything like that, however there has been a slight chill in the air and as I work in a causal office, throwing on a jumper with jeans is easy. What I've been reaching for are my slogan jumpers, from thicker ones with a small sentences to a big print in the middle on a thinner jumper. They're so easy to pair and look casual yet super cute. H&M, Primark and Pull&Bear do some of the best ones.
Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' Roll on perfume
Marc Jacob's Daisy perfume is my all time favourite scent. I went away to Amsterdam in September and as I'm going abroad again this month, I decided to invest in a rollerball perfume. It was the best decision I've made! I can take my favourite perfume with me wherever I go; whether that's abroad, on a night out or long day in London, I can quickly freshen up on the go. Marc Jacobs 'Daisy' has the freshest floral scent with a slight muskiness and I absolutely love it.
Anne Frank's Diary
Before I visited Amsterdam, I wanted to read Anne Frank's Diary as visiting her house was top on my list. I was about to pick a copy up on Amazon but ended up finding one at a boot fair for 50p and you really can't go wrong with that. The diary was incredibly eye-opening and bittersweet, I was amazed reading every single word. Anne was such a talented young writer and I feel blessed to have read her work. I love how the diary was a mixture of every girl's teenage thoughts and an insight into what they were going through in hiding. Reading it, really put a perspective on everything and it was so interesting to learn even more about the subject. Anne wrote how she really wanted to be a writer one day and make a name of herself, well that's exactly what she did. If you haven't already, add it to your reading list, it'll make you feel every single emotion and I couldn't recommend it enough.
Towards the end of September, I visited Amsterdam for a few days with my boyfriend. I've wanted to see this city for a while now so finally getting to go meant so much to me. Amsterdam didn't disappoint; the never ending canals, rows of bicycles and characteristic buildings had a beautiful charm about it. I loved every minute, walking around to take in the view, visiting its museums and taking a canal boat tour, it was dream-worthy. There were so many highlights and I'd love to back to see it all over again. If you're planning a trip there, check out my 48 hour guide to Amsterdam for my best tips.
I hope you enjoyed my September favourites. Which products have you been loving?
