SEPTEMBER FAVOURITES

30.9.15

It's that time of the month again!
(Not that kind)
Time to reflect over all the products and items I've been loving this September!

BEAUTY
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
I've been meaning to get my hands on this palette for a while.
However, due to its Hourglass not being sold everywhere and its price tag, its not always that accessible. So, when I was in London earlier this month for an Event, I popped into SpaceNK for the first time and treated myself to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette.
It's so worth the hype. Whether you're using it for highlight, strobing, contour or for setting it's such  versatile product. The three shades; Dim Light, Incandescent Light and Radiant Light.
I'm in love with this product. Packaging, Product and Versatility. It's beautiful.



Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation & Concealer
In London on the same Event trip, after SpaceNK I popped across the road to Harrods to the New Estée Lauder Counter. I've heard so much about the Double Wear Collection and the amazing coverage.
As a base lover, I thought I'd give it a try! I'm hooked.
I didn't only pick up the Double Wear Foundation in Shade: Pale Almond, but I bought the Concealer too! The Foundation is a lovely consistency which is really build-able with a nice formula to apply which I use with a Nanshy Buffed Base Brush for a Medium Coverage Flawless Finish.
I bought the Concealer in a lighter shade as a brighting concealer for under the eyes, brow bone and around the range. The Double Wear Concealer is a creamier consistency more like the NARS Concealer. It's got great coverage and I'm loving this combination.



Real Techniques Powder Brush & Blush Brush
I love Real Techniques Brushes, they're definitely some of the best affordable brushes available  on the high street. This month I popped into TK Maxx and saw they had Real Techniques!
Must cheaper than the normal high street price! So in my basket went the Powder Brush and Blush Brush.
I've been using the Powder Brush with my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and the Blush Brush with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette.
Get to TK Maxx ASAP!



Nanshy Brushes
As you probably saw earlier this month, I got some New Brushes from Nanshy.
Before the #BloggersFestival I'd never heard of Nanshy as a brand before, but I'm so glad I've been introduced to them because their brushes are fabulous quality and gorgeously packaged.
See my previous Blog Post here.



Organic Glam Mascara
In last months Red Magazine was a FREE Mascara from Organic Glam.
So, with a need for a read on the train to London and with a FREE Mascara, Red Magazine went 'straight in my basket'!
Despite the boring packaging with gold writing had worn away in a day. The Mascara itself jet black with a plastic, short bristled wand that gives great curl and length to the lashes it really is amazing.
See if you can find last months magazine hidden in the shelves with this absolute beauty steal inside!



COLAB Dry Shampoo in New York
I love dry shampoo. I think it's an old school yet genius creation.
However, some brands get it so, so wrong. I'm not a fan of Batiste, I find their dry shampoo bitty and white making my hair look worse than it did before! This month I tried COLAB for the first time after hearing so many good things. First I bought the COLAB Mini's in Monaco in Normal and Extreme, before buying the New York large bottle and falling in love.
The Normal over the Extreme is much more suited to my thick hair and works just like a shampoo, you don't need a lot and it blend throughout the hair. However, If you have fine limp hair, definitely try out the COLAB Extreme Volume Collection its super volumising.
I will not be using any other Dry Shampoo Brands now I've found COLAB.



I've got hooded, oily eyelids. So finding a good liquid eyeliner is a never ending tedious task.
This month I popped into the Drugstore and decided to give one, one last try!
I swatched the L'oreal Super Liner and I was pleasantly surprised with its staying power.
I've been wearing it all the time and it's the first liquid liner i've used on my lash line that doesn't smudge, move or disappear within 10 minutes.
So if you're looking for the perfect liquid eye liner for hooded eyes, definitely try this one!




SKINCARE
Kleem Serum
Whist at #BloggersFashionWeek this month I was introduced to Kleem.
They sent me home with a bottle of their Serum to try and I've been using it daily since and it's fab!
The citrus scent and gentle formula has been great with my dry sensitive skin and my skin is feeling fabulous! I'd highly recommend trying it.


Magnitone VibraSonic Daily Cleansing Brush
I've used a facial cleansing brush from Philipps before. However found it awfully harsh and rough on my dry and sensitive skin, so my boyfriend decided he'd have it and it work much better for him, he uses it daily! So I was excited to try the oh so raved about Magnitone VibraSonic Cleansing Brush which thankfully is much, much better!
The brush head is not only full on soft, caring bristles but it had two simple easy settings you simply activate by pressing the on button once for setting one, and twice for setting two.. no faff!
I love using my Magnitone - which I got in Green over Orange or Pink because it's just too cool - daily with my Nip & Fab Cleanser or my Emma Hardie Cleanser and Cleansing Balm and it has left my skin soft and clear feeling refreshed and healthy.
I'd highly recommend the Magnitone as a fun, small and cheaper alternative to the other cleansing brushes on the market, but through my experience I'd recommend it over the more expensive alternatives anyway.
It's amazing quality and you can get it n fun colours.
What more could you want?





BATH & BODY
SABON Bath & Body
I thought I'd try out some New Bath & Body Products this month from my PR Samples box and thought I'd give my 3 New SABON Products as try!
They not only come in the most adorable and beautiful boxed packaging but the scents are amazing.
I have the Body Lotion, Scrub and Shower Oil.
My favourite is the Shower Oil which I use daily as my body wash which smells divine and had such a handy pump applicator which is so useful. You only need a small amount which goes a long way, so I'm glad it will last ages! SABON's Products are beautiful so I'd highly recommended trying them if you're after some New Bath & Body Products!




INTERIORS
Bobble Throw
I love TK Maxx Homeware, I shop there way, way to much!
This month I picked up another New Throw from TK Maxx Home (also HomeSense) in the Sale for £22.00. It's cream coloured and huge. As well as super soft with fur bobble edging, I couldn't resist!
It looked great draped at the end of my bed. I couldn't not put it in my Monthly Favourites!



Print by Jess Mess Design
If you read my last post you'll know how much I'm in my with my New Hand Written Print from Jess Mess Design on Instagram.
It's of a Quote I created and love a lot, a lot. Hand Written and framed by Jess herself.
It sits proudly on my desk and I could stare at it for hours!
Be sure to check out Jess' Designs here.



I have a big, big love for jewellery and picked up this Copper Skull Ring Holder from Paperchase earlier in the Month. It's just perfect.
I'm obsessed with Copper anyway, but the fact it's a Copper Skull with Antlers is just utter perfection.
It sits on my bedside and looks stunning.




FASHION
Matalan Shirt
This month I've been doing a bit of AW15 Clothes Shopping!
Haul Coming Soon to my YouTube Channel Subscribe here!
I picked up this Black Check Shirt from Matalan for £12.00 which is a longer tunic length.
Because I'm 5'4 this is perfect as it means it's just that little bit longer and looks so fab and on trend over a pair of jeans or leggings with ankle boots. I can't get enough of wearing it!



TK Maxx Boots
I've been pairing my Matalan Shirt with my next Favourites, these stunning Spanish Suede Ankle Boots I picked up for £49.99 from TK Maxx.
I've been wearing them to death this month they're such incredible quality, look great with anything from a top and leggings to a dress and they're perfect for A/W!
I've been wearing them non-stop.


Strapzy Wrap
I'm forever changing my case on my phone but not since I got my Strapzy!
Until Strapzy sent me their new product, a Gold Glitter Wrap.
I put it on my iPhone 6 Plus straight away and it felt as if I had a New Phone.
So unique, so fun and so different.
Update your phone to feel like a complete new one for only £9.99.
So cool!




RANDOM
Vlog Camera
This month I relaunched my YouTube Channel and starting Vlogging!
I bought the Panasonic Lumix TZ57 and I'm so happy with it!
It's such a great little camera with amazing quality and a tilt screen, perfect for Vlogging.
It's easy to use and such great quality. But my favourite feature is by far the WiFi setting.
You can take a picture and send it to your phone wirelessly anywhere. Which is so handy if you social media obsessed like me!
If you're just starting a YouTube Channel or after a little digital camera for every day, I'd highly recommend the TZ57.

Leather Look Notebook & Copper Skull Pen
Since Blogging for Metro, relaunching my YouTube Channel and Blogging twice a week I've become obsessed with taking notes and planning. I found this perfect Lather Look Notebook from Pound Stretcher for £1.99 and this Copper Skull Pen from Paperchase and have since carried them everywhere with me! It's so helpful having a pen you with you all the time that you like to write with, and a notebook to jot down any random ideas that fly in!
This little pair have been a firm favourite this month.


Postcards
Note only have I become obsessed with taking note but this month I couldn't get enough of Notecards and Postcards! I've collected quite collection.
It's so much nicer to have a selection of postcards in your desk drawer that you can grab whenever.
Be it a unique birthday card or just leaving someone a note.
They're fun and handy!



HEALTH & FITNESS
