October favourites

Well hello to you my reader chums! October has been one of my favourite months this year with the autumnal vibes and exciting plans I've had. As the nights have got longer and weather has got chillier, everything has felt that extra bit cosier and I love it. I haven't had loads of favourites this months, however there's a few new items and one golden oldie to share with you.

Here are my monthly favourites...

October favourites 2017


Revlon matte liquid lipstick in shade in 'seduction'

Matte lipsticks are my go to, any time of year. I love the finish of a matte lipstick because not only does it suit my 'look' but matte formulations generally last that extra bit longer than a cream based lipstick. Revlon released their spin on liquid lipsticks a while back but it's only till recently that I got my hands on one. I chose 'seduction' as I loved the dusky pink nude shade and how it wasn't too much of an obvious colour. I've been loving to pair it with a red based autumn eye look as it tones down the overall makeup for everyday use. The formulation is creamy, it sets well and lasts with ease. Even though it's a matte, the lipstick sits comfortably on the lips and once dry, feels like you have nothing on at all. 

Tarte 'in the bloom' palette

I'm a sucker for a neutral palette but there's something about Tarte's 'tartelette in the bloom' that makes it extra special. I love its versatility; you can create toned down eye looks or a full on smoky eye. What I've particularly been loving about it this month is the two darker red shades, 'rebel' and 'leader'. As were in autumn I love to rock redder tones on the eye and these have done the trick. This palette has insane pigmentation, lasting power and blends really well, I couldn't fault it.

Cream tartan scarf

One thing I love about colder weather are the over-sized blanket type scarves. I have quite the collection but one of my newest additions is this cream and black style scarf from Primark. It has become my favourite accessory for a few reasons: I love how cosy it is, how it pairs well with any outfit and the simplicity of its print. If you're in need of a blanket scarf then take a trip down to Primark!

Simple 'kind to skin' moisturiser

Moisturisers are key especially this time of year when my skin gets that little bit drier. My go to at the minute is Simple's 'kind to skin' moisturiser because I love how lightweight the product is. It has a thin consistency and takes that little bit longer to soak in, however leaves you feeling super refreshed.

Italy trip

Colosseum in Rome

I'm a big fan of city breaks and one of my favourite countries is Italy. In October, to celebrate my boyfriend's 21st, I took him to Rome and Venice and it was honestly my favourite trip ever. We saw all the historic sites, ate our weight in pizza and gelato whilst making the best life-long memories. I loved every minute and wish we could go back to re-live it! I documented the trip over in a guide if you'd like to check it out.

Leather satchel

On our trip to Italy, Dan treated me to the most gorgeous leather bag that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. The simple design with various autumn tones screamed unique to me that I couldn't wait to use it. Ever since that trip, I've been rocking the bag with all my outfits and can't go anywhere without it. To see what I like to carry around with me, check out my latest 'what's in my bag'.

Harry Styles concert

Harry Styles live on tour

I'm a massive fan girl for Harry Styles and always have been so when I got the chance to see him live, I went a little crazy! He sung like an angel, put on an electric performance and got the crowd going. Hear all about my experience in this post

I hope you enjoyed my October monthly favourites. Which products have you been loving lately?
