October Favourites

Happy November everyone! I am loving being back in cosy jumpers with a hot chocolate in the evening, we are truly in Autumn now! October has gone by so quickly with the build up to Halloween taking centre stage with my little ones, many pumpkin and ghost biscuits have been baked! In the blink of an eye it’s time for October favourites! Here is what I have been loving!

October Favourites


My hands are really feeling the effects of the cold weather this month, I have been loving the BodyShop Vanilla Pumpkin Handcream to help prevent my hands from drying. It is such a nourishing cream and absorbs easily into the skin without feeling sticky or oily, not forgetting it smells good enough to eat! It has taken up residence in my handbag and is keeping my hands well looked after! It is limited edition so I will be stocking up!

I have always used face oils in my skincare routine, I really feel and see feel the benefits from continuous use. I am currently loving the Living Pure Natural Face Oil it is a real multitasker and so hydrating on my skin, always needing that extra hydration now the central heating is back on! It is not greasy and feels so comfortable once applied a real treat for my skin (read more in my review here).


I have been tweaking my morning makeup routine and am loving the looks I can achieve super quickly from Bareminerals Bounce and Blur Dusk eyeshadow palette. The most childproof palette I own this unique formula is not only crease proof but has no fallout! Created to be applied using your fingers it is easily buildable to achieve your desired look. I love a sheer look for the daytime and then pop on some more for a statement evening look (read more in my review here).

I can never have enough hydration and love a makeup product that also has added skincare benefits. I am back to using an old favourite, saying Good Morning to hydration from the Too Faced Hangover Primer. It smells yummy reminding me of the Caribbean and adds on some much need extra moisturiser before I apply the days makeup helping to stop the clogging up around my nose! It gives me a flawless base for my makeup and keeps it in place all day.

One of my favourite new finds are the Aveda Feed My Lips lipsticks. These are a lovely formula and feel so comfortable to wear, nourishing and protecting my lips from the elements. They are really moisturising and beautifully creamy. I was stuck deciding on a shade and selected Mulberry, a beautiful Rosy Pink for a pop of colour! I will definitely be getting some more colours!

  1. Some great picks here Hun. I absolutely love The Body Shop products and always use their Hemp Handcream. I definitely want to try the Aveda lipsticks though. I loved the beautiful swatch on your Instagram page.

    Ps the Pumpkin and Ghost Biscuits sound yummy 😋
