September favourites

Well hello to you my reader chums! Autumn has officially sprung and I can't wait for all things cozy: I'm talking film nights in, berry lipsticks, tartan scarfs and brisk forest walks. September has been a busy life month, however it's been full of some crazy fun moments and a few fabulous products.

Here are my September favourites...

September favourites


'Lady Danger' lipstick by Mac

You're probably thinking, why have you been loving an orange lipstick in autumn? However, I summer holiday'd a bit later this year so rocked the orange lip a lot this past month. Lady Danger is my go to orange shade. It's a combination of red and orange and can be worn for day time purposes or evenings out. As a matte finish, it lasts longer and compliments shimmery eye looks. 

Naked 2 basics palette

I'm a massive fan of the Urban Decay palettes. Every one I've tried offer a wide range of shades and have beautiful pigmentation. The Naked basics range are highly underrated but I absolutely love them. Naked 2 basics has been a highlight this month. I've been wearing a lot of toned down makeup lately and when I wanted something subtle on the eyes, I've reached for it. The palette has the perfect matte shades to contour the eyes and add shimmer to the lids. 

Revlon matte balm in 'Audacious'

Similar to 'Lady Danger', I have a big love for 'Audacious', a bright orange tone matte balm. It's slightly brighter and more orange in colour than Lady Danger and that's why I love it on holiday. It has that lighter tone, and is much thinner in consistency that it doesn't feel as if you're wearing a lip product.

'Into The Water' novel

I love a brilliant thriller and 'Into the Water' was just that. It was written by the same author as Girl on the Train which I loved, so I couldn't wait to give this a read. The novel was one of those reads that got me hooked at every page, and had plenty of unexpected moments. You could empathise with every character, and each chapter held plenty of detail. I could read and read and read, even when the book finished I wanted to keep reading. The author has an additive way with words and I'd highly recommend this for your next book.

Weekend in Weymouth and Tenerife holiday

As I mentioned September was a busy month and that was down to going away a couple of trips and my boyfriend's graduation. Both holidays were with my boyfriend's family and I felt blessed to have such a great time away.

In Weymouth we stayed at the glorious Portland House, an historic National Trust property. I couldn't believe my eyes when I first walked in! The house was an actual mansion, and still had all the traditional decor from the 1930s period. It was a truly luxurious stay and over the weekend, we had some quality family time and saw Weymouth's best bits such as the Portland Bill and Chessel Beach. 

Tenerife was an ultra relaxing and fun week away. We stayed in Golf de Sur at the Santa Barbara golf resort and club in an apartment. It was in situated in a quieter location which meant for a more calm retreat. The week involved wining and dining, chilling by the pool, walks, water sports and water parks. It was certainly a holiday to remember with a loving group of people. Check out my highlights in this post.

Twinnies Bake


Twinnies Bake

I haven't yet written a blog post about it yet but my twin sister and I launched our own Kent based baking business Twinnies Bake in the past month, and I'm very excited about it! We're starting out with our beloved brownies and then aim to branch into cookies, cakes and all sweet baked goods for special occasions. You can find out more over on our Instagram,  Facebook or Twitter.

Guilty feminist podcast

I've been a listening to the Guilty Feminist podcast for way over a year now and I've never mentioned it on my blog - and I don't know why! Over the past month, I've been travelling around on the train a lot and going on long journeys that it's given me more of a reason to listen to the podcast. The Guilty Feminist podcast is what's in the name - they discuss issues surrounding feminism, society with a lot of humour, singing and talented influential people.

I hope you enjoyed my September favourites! What are your favourites?

Thank you for reading <3
