Yay, its November! Finally, Halloween is over, and we can start getting ready for Christmas 🙂 October was a great month, here are some of my favourite bits and bobs from the past few weeks…
This month I’ve been really embracing the natural look, and going with a light base and minimal makeup. The key products for this are the Physician’s Formula Super BB range. I just love the BB cream, it creates such a fantastic natural base, and the powder adds light coverage and keeps everything in place all day, along with keeping shine at bay. Also, how cool is the packaging? I’ve done a full review of the range here.
Another favourite has got to be the October Glossybox! Seriously, this was one of the best ones I’ve received to date. It had a great mixture of skin care and makeup items. I’ve tried the So Susan eye pencil and LOVED it, it really brightened my eyes, and the Jelly Pong Pong liquid blush is so gorgeous, really pigmented so you only need a teeny bit, and its so easy to apply, and leaves such a natural flush to the cheeks. The Lanolips 101 ointment is great for using on really dry lips or patches of dry skin, and the Talika moisturiser is really light and hydrating. My only dud this month was the Nicka K Airbrush Blending Sponge. I dampened it as the guidelines suggested, but it never swelled up or changed shape, it just stayed as hard as usual, which didn’t work at all at applying foundation and was actually quite uncomfortable to use! But overall, it was a fantastic box, you can read my full review here.
Another favourite this month has been Disney! Well, more specifically, watching Disney movies! As you will know by now, I’m going to Disneyland Paris next week, so to get myself in the spirit, I’ve been watching Disney classics every evening before bed! My personal favourites are the princess movies like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty & Beauty and the Beast, but I’ve also loved watching Frozen, Mary Poppins and all the Pixar movies like Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo! I still have plenty more to watch in my last week before I head off, and I just can’t wait to get to Disneyland to immerse myself in the magic 🙂 If you want to find out how to get FREE Disney DVDs, check out my post on the Disney Movie Rewards System!
Finally, a music favourite this month has been from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis! I just love the song ‘Downtown’ its such a great tune, and the video is hilarious! There is just something so likeable about Macklemore, and this is just such a funky track, I defy you to listen to it and not dance. If you havent heard it yet, give it a listen by clicking above, you will not be disappointed!
