September Favourites

Sunday, 28 September 2014




I feel human again. Probably going to jinx my health now but I'm feeling so much better so maybe I have finally defeated this illness :) Please I beg don't come back!
We're reaching the end of September which means that a very excited Katie is about to arrive. October is fast approaching so it's nearly Halloween Time. My favourite! Plus you've got Bonfire night in November and then Christmas loving life. I will hopefully get round to doing some Halloween themed blog posts I cannot wait, already trying to come up with some costume ideas. Let's hope I actually do something this year.
Anyways what a ramble, today I'm sharing with you some of my favourites from September. I love watching these videos on YouTube, I may one day attempt to film again but it's just not happening right now.

Make Up and Hair
First up no shocker is my MAC lipstick in Kinda Sexy I've done a blog post all about it so if you want my thoughts on it and wanna find out a little bit more then check that out here

The Bourjois Bronzing powder is a product a lot of people have spoke about in the past. I'm no expert when it comes to using a bronzer but I now cannot do my make up without it. I feel like this adds the right amount of warmth to my complexion without being too orange. It's very easy to work with and blends like a dream. Still learning the technique of contouring and where to put Bronzer but I'm getting there slowly.

Another Bourjois product, a trio of eyeshadows. Unfortunately I do not know the name of the shade as it's rubbed off due to the fact I must have had it for around 4 years maybe longer. It features three varying shades of loveliness. First is a metallic silver which is perfect for a bit of night out glam. Then it has a medium shade brown which I think is perfect as an everyday lid colour. And finally a dark brown which is amazing in the crease. It's one of those products I forgot I had but love it so much.

VO5 mega hold Styling Mousse. How I managed to do my hair without mousse I'll never know  but this stuff is like magic on my hair. I understand now why so many people have said to me that mousse is the key thing to use with curly hair and boy are they right. It's not to sticky and just feels so nice when applying it through my hair. It manages to keep my hair in place throughout all elements of the weather. I loves it

I guess you could call this one a summer favourite, it's my Fedora hat from H&M. I've worn this in a couple of outfit posts and people seem to say I suit it. I love hats and I dig the whole fedora trend. It took me a long time to brave actually buying one. I'm not really one to make a bold statement but I love wearing it. It definitely catches peoples attention and instantly transforms what could be seen as a boring outfit.

My Aztec monochrome sandals I have been trying to wear as much as possible during September as I just love them. I don't want to let go. It has been quite warm here so I've managed to bust them out a few times. They are comfy, monochrome and add a bit of pattern so they tick all the boxes. Hopefully now the weather is starting to get colder my feet won't suffer as much.

Bad Neighbours on DVD, Zac Efron is in it need I say any more... I think this film is jokes and it's been perfect for when I'm down and need a bit of cheering up.

I've really been loving the band Lower Than Atlantis, I'm pretty new to hearing their stuff but I just can't stop listening. I remember seeing them at Reading festival on the Main Stage last year and mentioning that they were from Watford (my hometown). I just remember really enjoying their set and they seem like they were having a great time playing. They have a new album out soon so I think that will be purchased (bye student loan)

They are my favourites, September hasn't been the best of months. C'mon October you never let me down.
