September Favourites

I love reading about other peoples favourite products and activities to do throughout the month and I thought I would start doing favourites. I have a few different categories to get through so I'm just going to jump right in!

Makeup/Beauty:
I have a few different makeup bits and bobs that I've been loving lately, first being my Maybelline Brow-drama. I must have tried about 10 brow products in the last few months because I came to realise that I looked ridiculous having a full face of makeup on and barely visible brows. Anyway, the only one that has worked has been the Brow-drama and I absolutely love it! You just brush it through your natural brow and it makes them look fuller and darker without taking ages to do.
Next I have a another Maybelline product which is the Colour-drama in the shade Berry Much. This is your classic Autumn/Winter berry shade and really helps to bring a makeup look to life.
I've been really getting into contouring lately and the product I have been using to death is the Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit in the shade Ultra Fair CO1. There is a done fall to this product which is the blush, it just does not show up! The contour shade and highlight however have so much colour pay off that you barely need to touch it with your brush and you have enough product. I recently bought a Smokey Eye Brush from Wilko which is incredible! I use it to apply the contour shade to the crease of my eye (the shade is a perfect transition shade).



Entertainment:
My favourite music artist recently are The Weeknd. I wasn't to fussed on him when he did the song for 50 Shades of Grey but slowly the song Earned It really grew on me. I was recently given his album 'Beauty Behind The Madness' for my birthday and I must have listened to it a good 50 times, I suddenly just fell in love with his music. My favourite songs are The Hills, Can't Feel My Face and Dark Times. Seriously, give this guy a listen and you will not regret it.
I've had to find a new TV series to obsess over lately and I started watching 90210 on Netflix and after 3 episodes I was hooked. I'm now on the 4th season and I just can't get enough of it. I love the characters, the plot stories and the general bubbly darkness of it all. I'm not going to give any spoilers but the 2nd series was so intense and aggravating that it made me like the show more. If you're into shows like Pretty Little Liars or Gossip Girl you would really enjoy this show.
I went on holiday at the beginning of the month and I read the book PS. I Love You. I had already seen the film but I always feel that the books are better and really wanted to give it a read, best decision I have ever made. This is genuinely one of the best books I have ever read and I think I ever will read. I'm not going to say to much because there is a lot that could be ruined if I said anything but the love story within this book is so heart breaking and emotional that I personally really felt for this woman and I felt really connected to her.

Random:
I got some new boots recently because it is obviously getting into the colder months now and when I'm out walking my dog or going shopping I want some really sturdy, comfortable and fashionable shoes on. I got the Platform Chelsea Boots for H&M which cost £29.99. SO WORTH IT! Of course they made my feet rub like heck when I first started breaking them in but I knew that was going to happen. I've always really liked these sort of chunky looking boot and I already have a pair of black platform boots so I decided to get these in Burgundy, sure it's a little harder to pair with colours but if you're like me and only wear black or grey they are perfect!
Another birthday present I got was a Babyliss Curling Wand Pro (£25 John Lewis). I have always loved curling my hair but it just took so long, since I've had my hair cut I have been constantly curling it. These curlers have 4 heat settings for different size curl but I usually use it on 180 degrees, this gives me the perfect curl.
My last favourite has to be candles. I love candles all year round and burn them whenever I have the opportunity too. I currently have my Yankee Candle in Witches Brew burning which to me smells like campfire and Halloween, it's perfect.

I hope you enjoy this post and I'm thinking about making it a monthly thing that I post.
