October favourites

Well hello to you my reader chums! Like every single month this year, October has gone by very fast and that's left me with a bitter sweet feeling. I love October; it's the month where autumn really kicks off. The days become shorter, evenings get cozier and my favourite fashion items come out. I've gathered a few favourites over this past month and can't wait to share them.

Here are my October favourites...

October favourites

Urban Decay's Naked original palette

After the news that Urban Decay are discontinuing the Naked 1 palette, I wanted to give mine some love again. I used to obsess over the Naked 1 palette, however forgot about it for a while. However, this month I've rekindled my obsession and every time I wore eye shadow, this palette would be my go to. My favourtie shade is 'Half baked'. It's been raved for years and years and I will always speak about it. The gold shade works for a variety of looks and compliments blue eyes especially well.

Primark's mustard cardigan 

It's no news that autumn clothes are my favourite ever to wear, and Primark's range this year is heavenly. Picture all things mustard, brown, red and burnt orange - with plenty of tartan scarves thrown in. My favourite clothing item the past few weeks is their gorgeous mustard cardigan. I originally saw on Twitter and thought 'I need this' and headed to my local Primark and found it! The cardigan is super soft, warm and pairs beautifully with striped tops (aka my favourite fashion statement).

Pixi by Petra liquid lipstick in Au Naturelle

I was lucky enough to receive a couple of the Pixi by Petra liquid lipsticks from my friend Charlottle from CharlottePicks. I've seen them all over my Twitter feed and couldn't wait to see what the hype was about. Although I didn't fall for the red shade, the nude colour really took my fancy. 'Au Naturelle', is a pink toned nude and adds that hint of colour to the lips. Although it is quite liquidy and takes a while to set, it lasts forever on the lips.

Kiko's matte lipstick in 'Velvet Passion'

I'm a big fan of berry lipsticks, and autumn is the season for all the collection to come out. A lipstick I've recently bought is Kiko's in 'Velvet Passion'. It's one of those underrated lipsticks that I always forgot about. However, over the past month I've been keeping it in my handbag to rock on autumnal days, and fell in love with it a bit. The lipstick is a toned down berry shade so doesn't look too over the top but is enough to make a statement if that makes sense. The consistency is incredibly creamy and sits comfortably on the lips. Although the lasting power isn't the greatest, I love how easy and versatile is to wear.

'Selfie' makeup bag

I love a good makeup bag. As someone who travels quite a lot, good makeup storage in the suitcase is vital. I received this lovely makeup bag from a good friend and have become obsessed with it. Unlike other bags I've had, it fits all my makeup and isn't too big that it doesn't take up a huge amount of room. I also love the super cute phrase on the front!

Maybelline's 24hr eye shadow tattoo in 'Creme De Nude'

I've been a fan of Maybelline's eye shadow tattoos for the longest time and the past few weeks have been obsessing over the 'Creme De Nude' shade. Unlike other paint pots, as it's a nude, it neutralises any colours on the lid to give you an even base rather than enhancing colour. The cream helps the shadows last longer - and they're really affordable.

Pumpkin Moon

October favourites

In the spirit of autumn and Halloween, my boyfriend and I took a trip down to a local pumpkin patch, Pumpkin Moon. I've never been to one before and picked out my own pumpkins - but the experience was lovely. We got to pick out a variety including some super cute small ones you couldn't find at the supermarkets.

I hope you enjoyed my October favourites. What have you been loving this month?
