October Favourites | 2017

I probably say this every month but I can not believe we’re at the end of the month already! We are just under 2 months until Christmas, where the bloody hell has the time gone!?! I am very excited though, this is my favourite time of the year. I’m going to jump straight and tell you about everything I’ve been loving this month.

Candles and Defusers;


So I bought these last month and they are amazingggggThe top candles and defusers are supposed to be dupes of Jo Malone’s scents and honestly they definitely smell like high end candles and defusers. They’re all £3.99 each from Aldi… THAT’S RIGHT.. ALDI and they come in these four scents. No.1 is Lime, Basil & Mandarin; No.2 is Blackberry Bay; No.3 is Pomegranate Noir and No.4 is English Freesia & Pear. If you’re ever in Aldi, definitely have a little smell of all of them and I guarantee you’ll fall in love with them. The bottom candle is also from Aldi and was only £2.79 (I think!?) and it smells lovely and certainly like Autumn – these are definitely my new favourite candles and defusers.




Everyday for the past month I’ve been using Simple cleansing lotion in the mornings before I put my make up on and every evening once I’ve taken my make up off. Since doing this I can see a massive change in my skin. Its so clear, I hardly get any spots and my make up goes on so much better. 100% recommend this if someone is suffering with spots and blemishes right now, its so cheap too.

Another favourite this month is Rimmel London’s new foundation and concealer. OH EM GEE…. They are amazing!!! I am really pale, especially when I don’t have fake tan on and I do struggle to find pale foundation that looks good on my face… Until now! I’m so happy that I’ve found this foundation as it suits my skin so well, it goes on really easy and makes my skin look flawless. I’ve honestly never found a foundation as good as this – I bloody love it. As well as the concealer, its really pale which again really suits me. I have also bought a shade darker for when I have a tan and again this foundation looks really good.


Fragrance & Tan:


I popped into Boots last month and noticed they had a big sale on ‘The Library of Fragrance’ fragrances. I have heard about these in the past but the price has always put me off, so whilst they were half price I decided to grab one. I picked up the scent “vanilla ice cream” and it is SO sweet, but I love it. I’m not sure where exactly you’re supposed to use it, but I tend to spray it in the rooms in my house before I go to work every morning and I love smelling it when I walk in through the door, it feels very homely. I’d also say you wouldn’t need a lot of this either, its quite strong.

The final thing I’ve been loving this month is the James Read Gradual Tan. I actually won this in a giveaway in September and I absolutely love gradual tan so was very happy with this. It’s quite a small bottle so I only used it on my face, sprayed it a few times before bed and when I woke up my face had a lovely, healthy glow to it. It’s a mist so you don’t have to rub it in, just spray and a few hours later its developed, well thats for the face anyway. I’m definitely going to re-purchase this in a bigger size as I love it so much. If you’re looking for a different gradual tan, I’d highly recommend this one.


Thats everything I’ve been loving this month. I can’t believe its November in a few days, I’m so excited how close we’re getting to Christmas. What have you been loving this month? Are you as excited for Christmas as I am?
