So I am back at it again with another blog post! Whoop Whoop! As I am sure you can tell from the title, today’s post is going to be my October Favorites! I think the last favorites post I did was in March, so I am seriously behind on these! But never fear, I am back and so excited to share alot of new blog posts with you in the coming months!
I have compiled a list of what I have been loving this month, some of the things that feature in this post were given to me for my birthday as October is my birthday month, so I may not know where exactly everything comes from but I’ll try my best!
First up is a beauty and fragrance favorite!
This was one of the gifts I recieved and oh my goodness does it smell AMAZING! It is the Black Musk fragrance mist from The Body Shop. If you enjoy sweet smells then I would definitely recommend you try this product. I have been wearing it every single day since I got it. A relatively inexpensive yet incredible smelling perfume mist.
The next October favorite is a movie favorite! Now this isn’t a movie that has come out this month but unfortunately I have only just recently gotten around to watching it! None the less, it has now made its way onto my list of my top three favorite movies of all time.
It is ‘Before We Go’, defintely a movie to watch if you are a romantic like myself. Without giving any spoilers I will tell you that it covers love, loss, adventure and the trials and tribulations of relationships. It is a really beautiful movie about two people who meet at a train station by chance and spend an entire night and morning together going over personal details about each of their love lives. It sounds like a strange plot but trust me when I say that it is worth watching.
Next up is a clothing favorite! I don’t know if this is a recent trend or if I am just jumping onto the band waggon a little late but this month I bought an oversized denim jacket from my gran’s second-hand store and it had a number of really cool patches on it, so naturally I have now become slightly obsessed with patches!
Pretty cool right? Well I think so! I added some of my own patches to the back along with those that were alread ironed on to the jacket and I think it turned out pretty great!
Another beauty oriented favorite is the Lush Lip Scrub!
This particular scrub is in the flavor ‘bubblegum’. When you first open it up, you immediately smell the intense yet incredibly accurate bubblegum smell. The texture is obviously grainy but it is not extremely rough or damaging to the skin on your lips. Overall I would definitely recommend trying it out!
This favorite is another fashion favorite, and also a gift that I recieved for my birthday earlier this month!
Now you can see why I’ve been loving this bag! I am a huge fan of bright colors and I love the Aztec traingular pattern. Also, how cute are the different colored pom poms on the side of the bag? I unfortunately don’t know where this small bag is from. I would guess a store like Accessorize but then again I could be very wrong…
Next up we have the long awiated makeup favorite! Anyone who knows me will know that my favorite makeup product is almost always the highlighter! Gotta have that glow all day everyday!
This gorgeous product is the Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade! Can we just talk about the colors for a second? I mean how beautiful is the highlighter itself! If you are looking for a light shimmery highlighter then this is the one for you!
And last but certainly not least we have a smelling or rather a relaxation favorite! A candle of course!
Because you cannot go wrong with a good smelling candle! This is the Summer Breeze candle from Woolworths. Think about the combination of sweet smelling vanilla with tropical fruit and that would be the perfect way to describe what this candle smells like! It is most definitely a must have!
So there you have it! These are all my October Favorites and the things that I have been loving this month! I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post and be sure to check back again tomorrow for a new one!
Have a happy weekend xx
