It’s that time again when I show you all my October Favourites. And believe me, there’s a lot.
October has been such an interesting month. I’ve started my exams, applied for University in Milan and grown my YouTube channel from 4 to 21 Subscribers! (THANK YOU!!)
My mental health has been a bit of a struggle this month but I’m getting by. I’ve been getting a lot more worked up about little things, including uni work, something I talk about in my last post.
Anyway, enough about that. Let’s get on to the bit that you’re really interested in!
My October Favourites
I have so many this month so get you’re cup of tea ready and settle in…
1. Stranger Things 2
My opinion? WOW.
When this series was being built up, I didn’t think it would be as good as it is. All the hype and excitement seemed way too good to be true.
However, George and I watched the whole series at once – literally in one sitting from 2pm until 10pm (sorry Mum and Dad, I am working I swear) – and it was incredible.
Some people have criticised the show but I think the way it was acted and written was almost 10x better than Series 1.
Emma’s Rectangle described this a lot better than me in her October Favourites video. Go check it out!
2. Grey Lipstick
This is definitely a controversial one. George has told me he doesn’t like it and Sam says he does. What’s your opinion?
I bought this Rimmel ‘Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick’ in the shade ‘Shadow 850’ for just £5.99. Being a student, the low price is very important.
Not only did this look great on Halloween but I’m hoping to use it during Winter too… STAY TUNED!
3. The Body Shop’s ‘Banana’ Shampoo and Conditioner
I’ll be honest: I only bought this because there was no Coconut…
However I was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous and fruity smell that it gives your hair.
The Shampoo and Conditioner don’t smell like real bananas but rather those foam sweets you could get when I was little… You know which ones I mean.
They leave my hair feeling extremely silky and soft. I would definitely recommend you purchasing it!
4. ‘Sophdoesnails x Revolution’ Eyeshadow Palette
(It’s really dirty, I’m sorry.)
Yes, I go on about this palette.
No, I won’t stop for a while.
This palette is the best thing that has happened to my makeup collection in a very long time. It’s extremely pigmented, has a wide range of colours and is incredibly wearable!
I pretty much wear this on my eyes everyday. If you want to see my initial reaction to the palette, click here!
5. ‘Riverdale’ Season 2
Another TV programme but I just had to mention it.
I won’t give you any spoilers but I have been completely addicted to the second series. It’s so much darker, more mysterious and is definitely all about the drama!
Riverdale is the perfect programme to watch if you want to chill out. I know I said there’s drama but it’s not heavy and is perfect to watch as you snuggle up in bed.
6. False Nails
I know you’re thinking two things right now:
They’re so bad for your nails!
Isn’t she supposed to be saving?
Well, yes and yes. However I budget them into my weekly spending allowance and… yeah I have no come back for the first one.
I have been in Boots this month buying cute nails galore! They just make everything so much easier as I have no time to paint my nails.
It’s sad but true.
7. Being Vegan
Now I’ll admit, I haven’t been doing this very well. Every time I push myself to do it, however, I love it.
The food is actually really tasty and super easy to cook. Also, it’s surprisingly easy to get all the sufficient nutrients etc (which I didn’t think it would be!)
If you’re tempted to go Vegan but aren’t sure, I was inspired by Unjaded Jade’s ‘Why I Went Vegan’ video.
I’m challenging myself, from today, to eat Vegan for the rest of November so we’ll see how that turns out!!
8. Cosy ‘Mustard’ Jumpers
Finally, I know I mentioned it in my last Favourites, but I’m really loving the mustard jumpers.
They’re so cosy and look great this time of year! I won’t ramble on but make sure to check out my post about them here.
So that’s everything for today, I hope you enjoyed it!
