My September Favourites

Hi Guys,

I was a little bit stuck for favourites this month as a lot of my September Favourites have actually stayed the same from my August Favourites. But I realised I've discovered so many new things and rediscovered a few products that had been sat in the drawer unloved for quite a while.
I always think that after my Birthday in August that, that's the start of it getting gloomier and turning into autumn. I actually really love the makeup of Autumn, but I could really do without the rain. I've started to move more to the darker tones and comfy, snuggly, homely things to try and forget the weather that's decided to turn up.
I couldn't give up that summer glow just yet and I have turned to MAC Soft and Gentle to get it. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with it sometimes as it does have such an impact, some days I do just think "woah thats way too much" but It is such a pretty highlight I always go back. I also usually go for matte skin in the winter, but I really want to try glowy skin this year instead, especially with a dark berry lip.

Usually during Autumn I reach for the golds and bronzes for my eyes, but actually this year Illamasqua have given me a whole new take on it. The Earth Collection has shown me a new way to wear warmth on the eyes and such stunning muted jewel shades too. One of my favourite items I've been reaching for has been the Pure Pigment in Draco. Although it does look like an antiqued gold, its more of a khaki with the most gorgeous golden finely milled shimmer. It reflects the light beautifully and really opens up the eyes.

The other shade I've actually been using a lot with Draco is the Illamasqua Powder Shadow in Vapour. It might not seem like it, but its one of the most wearable colours I own in my entire collection. The burnt orange looks beautiful paired with khaki to purple and blends out black beautifully, adding such a subtle warmth to the eye.
The Comforter Bubble Bar from Lush has to be one of my all time favourites. It seems to goon forever, as its huge for the price! I love the fruity blackcurrant scent, which is so warming, especially now its getting colder too.

One of my favourite scents that I really don't wear enough of is the My Burberry Perfume. I've worn it quite a lot recently compared to how much I usually do, as its engraved I use it sparingly. I have a few sample bottles that I love to have in my bag because they're practically impossible to smash. It's a floral scent, but I find its perfect for Autumn as its slightly warmer. As you can probably tell I'm not that great at describing scents... sorry!

Possibly one of my favourite, favourites this month is the GU Hot Chocolate. I spend probably a really ridiculous amount of money in Costa during the Autumn/Winter, but trying to find a Hot Chocolate that is as good as theres has been a mission for quite some time. Now I've finally found an at home version, this Gu Ganache is perfect. Its just like melted chocolate in a carton, it's rich but not sickly at all. I would happily just live off of this with mini marshmallows from now on!
I went to see James Bay at the weekend and I can safely say I haven't stopped thinking about it since. I was extremely lucky to meet him after the show and it's just fuelled the fan girl inside me even more as he was so lovely. I have been a huge fan of James Bay ever since I saw him perform for Burberry and have been hoping to see him since. If you can get tickets to see him live I really recommend it as he is incredible!

Also this month I have finally caught up on Pretty Little Liars! I mentioned in my Netflix Tag that I was watching it and avoiding spoilers like it was going out of fashion, sadly I did find out who A was before I had finished it. But I still enjoyed it and cant wait for the next half of season 6. If you do know who A is and haven't watched it yet, do give it a go! It's still a fantastic show to watch with so many twists and turns!

Hopefully October will have some favourites now, otherwise it might just be a dedication to Hot Chocolate...

  9. I truly adore James Bay. He went on tour with Taylor Swift here in Germany and I was totally amazed by him. Now I really want to see him perform again but I don´t think he is coming to Germany any time soon.
    I also used to love Pretty Little Liars but stopped watching in the Season 5 break. I really need to get back into it!
