| Monthly Favourites |

1. Spiced Orange Yankee Candle | 2. Natural Collection Body Spray in Mango Papaya  
 3. Ponche Shower Gel - LUSH Christmas Collection | 4. Garnier Essential Moisturiser |
 | 5. John Frieda Frizz Eaze Hair Serum  |

I am for one, so shocked that we have just entered in to November! Time has flown by in the last year, especially October. Starting the second year at university has been a lot harden than imagined and I've already had to complete 6 tests, so it's been a crazy month.

I've managed to pick out a handful of my monthly favourites even though I've had so many recently.

1. As you can probably tell from above, I love orange scents, so of course I had to try the Spiced Orange Yankee Candle. It has a beautiful smell which I love to have burning on either a pamper or relaxing day. It is definitely worth trying and I would advise always to try the sample sizes first before dipping in to the full sized Yankee Candles as they can be expensive.

2. The Natural Collection Body Mist is a product I use to dearly love and purchase a lot as I much prefer body mists to sprays and I don't like to use too much perfume up really quickly, so this was a great way of having a great scent for a really inexpensive price. Again, I purchased another orange scent of Mango Papaya and it smells really refreshing. It's definitely a hand bag essential. 

3. I'm definitely excited to be coming in to winter knowing that LUSH have restocked their Christmas edition products. Ponche Shower Gel is one of my favorite products and always leaves a great smell on you but also, you will notice your house smelling of it after you've showered. I love this product too as it's made from Tequila which I think adds a little something different to average shower gels. If you're in Lush any time soon I would definitely check it out. I will also be doing a mini (large) shop in Lush very soon so check that out if you're in need for some new, natural and inexpensive products.

4. From a young age, Garnier Essential Face Moisturiser has been a favourite product and is one of the best I've used. It's around £5 depending on what store you purchase it from and it always leaves my skin feeling great. I have fortunately never had much of a problem with spots or my skin being in bad condition so I'm not 100% sure if I would recommend it to everyone, but it's always worked great on mine and has been for a long time. 

5. I have tried lots and lots of hair products, including serums to try tame my hair. I have very 'wild', thick and uncontrollable waves and frizz at some points and after trying this product I would find it very hard to do my hair routine. It helps soften my hair, get rid of frizz and also allows me to tame and style it to my choice. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great serum. 

6. Bleach London Semi Permanent Dye - Blullini | 7. Bleach London Dip Dye Kit

Since 2011, I have had ombre hair and have also dip dyed it blue a few times. I love having ombre hair and I would find it hard to part with. After I heard the hype about Bleach London, I thought I would try it as usually my dye for the ombre part would be quite expensive and this is affordable. I won't go in to too much detail as I would like to do a blog review, but definitely a product I'll be using again and a great way to achieve the dip dye look for the first time. 

| 1. Kate Moss Rimmel London Collection - 01 | 2. Rimmel London - 170 Alarm | 
| 3. Collection Gothic Glam - 2 Scorned | 

1. I imagine many of you will agree, but when it comes to shopping I always tend to go for a lipstick! I've used these the most lately and I adore all three of them. I love all of Kate Moss Rimmel lipsticks but this is probably my favourite. It's great for a night out and it has really great coverage to how many times you need to apply it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a statement red lipstick.

2. I adore the Rimmel London - 170 Alarm lipstick for it's lovely pink cherry colour. I was fortunate enough to be given this by a friend but it is always in my handbag and is my trust lipstick. Again, it has a great coverage and looks great in this time of year.

3. Of course, it was Halloween yesterday and I wanted to go out of my comfort zone of pink and red lipsticks and this one definitely caught my eye. I did use it yesterday and a few other times and I just love the colour. It varies on what I am wearing and the occasion but for the price and a bit of change it was a great choice. I was surprised as well how well it stayed on, so would recommend it again for someone daring for a change. 

 These were my monthly favourties, but what about yours? 
Any recommendations for the month ahead?
Would love to hear from you!
I also have some plans for possible dip dye tutorial, let me know and comment below.

  1. If you had to choose, would you go with the Kate 01, or 170 Alarm?

    1. 107 Alarm :) I find the matte colour range have a better texture and are lovely on the lips! xx
