Favourite Five

Reasons why I love the end of September – Pumpkin season begins, Halloween is closer, leafs turn from green to beautiful shades of orange, you have the excuse to transition to your winter boots/coats/jumpers etc and the fact that you are 2 months away from the end of the year.

September was especially intense month on the job front. For those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I had left my amazing job in London and relocated to here the Midlands (I know crazy move but its all for a better future and more room). I am currently starting my second fixed term contract that is due to finish in Christmas. So the aim for 2020 is to be back in a perm role.

Now over the course of September there have been a few new and a few trusty old things that have got me through which I would like to share with you all.

After all sharing is caring as my sister says.

Lunch/Snack Boxes

My current new way of saving money and being a little healthy is to bring my own lucnh to work and carry my own snacks. I found these on sale at Paperchase and loved how colourful and light they were. I have been using the large one for my lunch and the rest to carry snacks like nuts, energy balls and dried fruit in.

The Ordinary

I try to visit London once a month for two reasons one all my friends, sisters, fav restaurants and shopping is there. One of the first thing I struggled with in the Midlands is how some of my fav’s are not here. So while shopping in Topshop Oxford St branch I came across The Ordinary skincare brand and instant;y nought the two products that I thought suitable for my skin issue. Vitamin C serum to help with dullness and a chemical Peel that I have yet to use but heard amazing reviews on.

Sleek EyeShadow

I had two functions to attend in September a wedding and a reunion dinner. On both occasions I decided to play around more with my eye makeup now the old me would just do a straight eyeliner and mascara. However, I have felt inspired by many beauty Youtubers and braved the Eyeshaow pallett world. I found this Sleek Palette in Storm 578 was the perfect for day and night looks. They were very easy to belnd a super pigmentaied. So even a newbie like me didnt end up making a mess of it.

Maybelline Dream Matte Blush

During Winter months I make certain switches not only in my skincare routine but in makeup too. I find using a cream blusher helps my skin to look more hydrated and fresh. This blusher by Maybelline is one that I love and recommend as its inexpensive and very pigmented.

WHSmith Notebook

This has been a lifesaver for me when coming to blogging and something that I have utilised pretty much every day. It helps me to organise my blog ideas, posts and jot down anything that comes to my head before I forget. As someone who works full time, I find sometimes I don’t have enough time to blog and having a notebook (this was something recommended by my husband to start using) has really helped.

What things have you loved in September?

    1. Hey my lovely,

      Thank you for reading my post. Cream blusher i find lasts a little longer throughout the day. I am trying really hard to bring and try new things. Eyeshadows are definitely a brave move on my part.


  1. I am really trying to remember to bring lunch with me every day now. I also have a few emergency tins of soup in the office in case I forget so that I don’t go to the shops on those days, it’s been working well so far 14 days without buying food in work!
