My October Favourites | Top 10

Here are my top 10 favourites this month...

1) Bad Angels by Rebecca Chance: I couldn't remember the last time I really got into a good book so I looked through my Mum's books and picked this one out (it may or may not have been for the sparkly cover) and I love it! Bad Angels is about an actress, Melody Dale, who's big Hollywood break left her broken and career in tatters so she's back in London wanting her old life - and boyfriend back. I'm only a few chapters in but I love the storyline and it's a good old girly read!

2) Lush Cosmetics Bubblegum Lip Scrub: As the days are getting colder and the wind is picking up, the weather doesn't just play havoc with our skin and hair but our lips too. I don't tend to get cracked lips but my lips do get a little dry in the colder months and to make my deep Winter lipstick shades glide on more smoothly, I have been using this lip scrub. You only need a tiny amount and you can use it as often or little as you like and it smells delicious! 

3) SensatioNail gel colour in Teenie Bikini: As I am training to be a Beauty Therapist our standards are very high and we are not allowed to wear any nail colour. However, it's now half term and I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous colour! It's the perfect Barbie pink for me and has a subtle shimmer in it too.

4) Benefit's It's Potent! Eye Cream: I wrote a review about the It's Potent! Eye Cream in one of my latest reviews but I am just loving this product even more! The cream feels so amazing on my delicate eye area and really hydrates the area which is great in the colder months. It's also a good base before applying any concealer - if you have dehydrated eyes you will have concealer-filled-creases under your eyes but with just a small dab of this every day and night concealer-filled-creases will be no more! 

5) Nail Wheels: As I am a trainee Beauty Therapist I thought it would be a good idea to purchase some nail wheels to make it easier for my family/friends/clients etc to choose a colour. They are also great for practising nail art on and are soo cheap too! 

6) Michael Kors Sporty Citrus perfume: I received this perfume as a gift last Christmas after I tried a small sample tube of it. I haven't worn this fragrance for such a long time but I rekindled my love for this gorgeous fruity fragrance this month and I have been wearing it pretty much every day since.

7) MaxFactor Eye Brightening Tonal Black Volumising Mascara for Green Eyes: I have tried and tested countless mascaras but this will always be one of my favourites. The mascara comes in three shades: Black Pearl for brown eyes, Black Sapphire for blue eyes and Black Ruby for green eyes. The mascara has metallic tones in it that help brighten your eyes as well as enhance your eye colour - I definitely prefer the colour Black Ruby to a harsher strong black mascara and it makes my lashes look longer and fuller, its a win-win!

8) Candles: I have been on the hunt for some fairy lights to hang on one of my walls in my bedroom but have so far been unsuccessful. However, I have loved having candles lit all around my room. They look so pretty and smell lovely! I'm not sure where this candle holder is from as it was a birthday gift from a friend last year but I love the pretty pattern it gives off when a tea light is lit inside.

9) Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran: Who doesn't love a cute guy with tattoos singing romantic songs?! I have Ed Sheeran's album and there is not one song that I don't like although Thinking Out Loud has got to be one of my favourites. It's such a beautiful song and I could listen to it over and over again plus the music video is stunning!

10) Magnitone Lucid: You may have seen how much I was bigging up my Magnitone Lucid in my review post on it but I am still using this cleansing brush and I am still so impressed with the results. Of course its not a miracle worker - I still get spots but my skin does look clearer and I can sleep well knowing my face has been cleaned thoroughly and my skincare products absorb into my skin a lot quicker instead of sitting on the surface.

I hope you enjoyed reading my brief summery of my top 10 favourites this month. Let me know in the comments what your favourites are this month!
