Hola, It’s been a while since I’ve uploaded and I can only apologise. Quite a bit has happened the last month or so, including working on a farm for a month, starting a new job at a print house and attempting to plan out my future. Since I’ve been away I’ve gained a whole new collection of items I’ve been loving, so here they are.
Joan Collins Timeless Beauty, Class Act mascara £20 Marks & Sparks
I unfortunately lost my Eyeko Black Magic Mascara which I absolutely LOVED. I actually wanted to replace that exact mascara, but when I popped back into M&S to grab it, that particular store didn’t stock it. I was desperate for a mascara so had to pick up anything I could which is why I ended up with this little gem. I don’t know if it’s as good as the Eyeko mascara, but it’s not bad. The consistency isn’t too thick which is fantastic as I like to layer it up. It also stimulates growth action, promotes lash thickness and adds an extra 1mm growth in a month. Whilst my natural lashes aren’t yet looking like falsies, I believe that this mascara is a lovely little product and the packaging makes me feel like I’m in 60’s glamour dressing room.
p.s. this product stings if it runs into your eyes, so if you are a big crier maybe avoid this on
Neal’s Yard, Honey & Orange Facial Scrub £18 Neal’s Yard
If you read My July Favourites 2017, you’ll remember that it was heavily skin care based. Having rather troublesome skin means I’m always on the hunt for new remedies, foods and products to help clear the bugger up. I believe I showed you my Body Shop range of skin care but I have come to the conclusion that those products were too harsh and ladled with chemicals. I soon ditched them and hit up my natural care stores. Neal’s Yard products are very expensive but I always, always find that they are worth it. This particular facial scrub smells divine. It helps to clear my skin without irritating it which is hard to find in an exfoliator
Ultrabland Facial Cleanser, Lush
Now this is my holy grail. I use this at least once a day, but I try to use it in the morning and the evening. It is incredibly gentle and helps to clear my skin whilst also moisturising. On the label it says that over time it helps to balance out the skin to prevent acne.
Whilst I’ve found plenty or new artists and albums including; The Internet, Buddy, Tyler The Creator etc, there’s one song that I’ve had on repeat since I found it:
Electric Feel by Henry Green
This song really makes me slow down and think.
I finally purchased Rupi Kaur’s milk and honey! And I love it! I couldn’t have purchased it at a more relevant time. I’ve flicked through it every evening since I bought it and I cannot wait for her next book to arrive.
You may also know that I love Tuesday’s with Morrie by Mitch Albom, well I stumbled across his other book The Five People You Meet In Heaven on my travels. I, of course had to buy it immediately. I will let you know how amazing it is once I’ve read it.
My favourite piece of clothing has to be my big red puffa from UO. It was quite expensive, but so worth it. It honestly feels as though I’m wearing a duvet. What more could you want on your ice cold morning commute to work?
My other favourite has to be my black corduroy pinafore dress also from UO. Paired with either a plain tee or a sweater or even a nice shirt, this staple can be dressed up or dressed down for a warm, autumnal day look.
