The Beauty Analyst – October Favourites.

I’ve NEVER done a favourites post before! Can you believe it?! October has been and gone, and all the magic of Halloween has faded away until next year. In October I loved so many things that I wanted to share with you.


Beauty favourites:
My beauty routine changed dramatically in October, my lips changed from pinks to berries and my skincare upped its hydrate and nourish levels.

 My favourite lip in October  has been any of the Sleek Mini Mattes Christmas set that you can currently get in boots for £5 you can read all about them here in their own little post. They are so pigmented and really have that staying power that you need with a liquid lipstick. The shades are also perfect for Autumn weather.

Another liquid lipstick I have been enjoying is the Collection Velvet Kiss Matte Lip Cream in ‘Caramel’. This is the dupe for NYX ‘Cannes’. I love a red/brown nude shade, this one is almost like a liquid version of MAC Velvet Teddy. I actually prefer the formula of the collection Matte liquid lipsticks, they dry quicker and aren’t too thick when you first apply them to your lips. They are £2.99 – cheaper than NYX and better, so clearly this had to go in my October favourites.


My other favourite beauty item this October is the ‘Superdrug Clearly Youthful’ day and night serums. This month it’s got much colder and my skin needs a lot more hydration and moisture. Therefore these concentrated hydrating serums have been so helpful for keeping my skin looking healthy and not dry. I have even wrote a full post about these serums – you can read it here.


Lifestyle/Random favourites:
We all know that autumn means long walks kicking fallen leaves and cosy nights in with your besties. I had a lovely few walks but my favourite was visiting the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London. It was super pretty and the trees looked so autumnal. I also had a lovely shopping trip in Westfield Stratford with the boy. I’ve also been baking A LOT. I make white chocolate cookies, carrot cake and toffee cake. They were all very tasty and I feel like they all would receive a Paul Hollywood handshake (I wish). What autumnal things have you been up to?

Obviously let’s talk Halloween… What did you go as this year? I loved writing my ‘Outfit ideas for girl’s guys and groups‘ post. It made me so excited to dress up as a mermaid and have a good laugh with my friends whilst looking as scary as possible. Did you go to a party?

Favourite Film:
I went to the cinema with my best friend this month to watch ‘Bridgette Jones Baby’. This film is so funny and the perfect pick me up happy story. We went to Poundland first and got lots of sweets and popcorn, it was such a good night. Also how HOT is Patrick Dempsey?!


 Favourite Music:
I have fallen in love with James Arthur. He released his new album on the 28th October and I’ve already listened to it a million times! I love the songs ‘Can I be him’ and ‘Prisoner’. I have also loved Kanye West Fade, and  Ellie Goulding ‘still falling for you’ – partly because it’s the main song for Bridgette Jones Baby, it also makes me think of my boyfriend with whom I celebrated 5 years of being with in October!

Do you have any October favourites? I hope you had a great month and had lots of fun! What are your plans for November? Its my 6 month blog birthday on the 15th  of Nov so I am super excited. Thanks to all of you for reading my blog, and following me on my Twitter and Instagram – this is the best thing I have ever done so thanks for all your love and support along the way!

I’m hoping to reach 1000 Twitter followers and 250 Instagram followers  by the 15th, so fingers crossed – if you don’t follow me already check me out!

Lots of love,
