October Favs

Saturday, 27 October 2018

It's that time of the month again! I know that favourites posts aren't a frequent feature on my blog, but I felt that there was a fair few new things that I have been into this month, and thought that would be worthy of a ramble. I have been LOVING October - this half of the year is by far the most enjoyable in my eyes. The cosy nights in are made 1000x more cosy when it's cold, dark and foggy outside - basically my favourite thing to do 24/7. So here are the things I have been enjoying in the month of October.

Burning candles
Obviously, the dark cosy nights are complimented with burning a candle in the corner of any room. I have been burning two this month. One is a Sanctuary candle that I got last Christmas, but wanted to save it for the colder months of the year, as it's called the cosy candle. That's exactly what it is. It smells super warming, and cosy. Nothing else to be said really about a cosy candle. The second candle I have been loving is 'Christmas Eve' by Yankee Candle. Yes I know it is only October, but I can't help but be excited for Christmas! It smells like everything Christmassy, and I love it. Go and have a sniff of the Yankee Candle Christmas range, I'm SO tempted to buy some more of them.

Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette 
There is a post dedicated to >this< beauty on my blog, but I have found myself reaching for this palette most, if not every morning, this month. It's just so versatile. As you can see, it is well loved, but specifically, I have been loving the shade 'Retrograde' the most. It's a gorgeous brown based shimmer shade, with a slight blue reflect. Paired with browns and oranges in the crease, it looks beautiful.

The most played this month has to be Kings of Leon and Jungle. Jungle released their second album in September and I am obsessed. If I fancy putting some music on to have on in the background whilst I am trying to concentrate, Jungle have been the ones that I have chosen to play. 'House in LA' and 'Mama Oh No' are the ones I like the most from that album. As for Kings of Leon, they have been played on repeat in the car, and I am just loving them.

The Gino, Gordon and Fred: Roadtrip showing on ITV has been brilliant. The 3 chefs are going on a roadtrip around their home towns, France, Scotland and Italy, collecting ingredients for cooking. They are such a good trio, and whatever they end up doing is made funny by their loud personalities. If you want something to sit down and watch, whilst fancying a giggle, stick this one on. As well as this one, I have been religiously watching the Great British Bake Off. Who doesn't love this programme?! It's so cosy, and I just love it.

What have you been loving this month?
