Hi, everyone! Happy October and a huuuuge welcome back to my page! It’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote something for my little space.. If you’ve been following me over on Insta then you’ll know I’ve just came back from a three week holiday in Florida and then came back to hand in my Masters thesis! It’s safe to safe time has passed by in a heartbeat. It feels so good to be back and so today I’m sharing my September Favourites with you!
Wearing – headbands and hair accessories. I recently got a middle parting fringe put in and I absolutely love it! Since being back from holiday, I have really loved having my hair down with just a simple accessory. I find that it makes such a difference to your outfit/makeup when you have something like this in – I picked up most of my accessories from Primark as they have a really great selection and they’re so cheap too!P
Playlist – my playlist has consisted of Podcasts this month, from travelling to sitting at the desk, I’ve found that I’ve really been enjoying listening to them! This months favourites:
• The Grow & Glow Show
• Loose Lips
• Beyond Today
Watching – Good Girls on Netflix! This was a complete different series that I would usually go for but it was really filled with laughs! I binged watched both seasons as they were so easy to follow – definitely worth the watch if you’re after something gripping but easy to watch whilst doing other things!
Reading – What You Did by Claire McGowan. Again, with travelling in September, it allowed me a little time to get stuck into a book whilst lay by the pool. I really enjoyed What You Did and I’m not ashamed to admit I finished it in two sittings! I love thrillers and actions and this one did not disappoint. I really loved the plot twist and was kept guessing until the very end – I loved that this was a little different to some of the other thrillers I’ve read!
On the hair – Batiste Stylist Hydrate Me: Oil Mist. After having a little refresh of some products, I forgot I had this! I started using it and instantly I can see a difference in my hair. Usually, when I use an oil it makes my hair feel greasy but I have found that since using this my hair has felt really smooth and soft. I’ve been applying it just before straightening and I love it!
On the body – CurveBalm.. aka the miracle product. I took this product on holiday with me as one of the worst things we can get as a female is chubrub. I have tried so many products so was very reluctant that this wasn’t going to work either – but honestly, I feel this will become one of the products I won’t leave the house without. The consistency is quite thick which really does help to stop your legs from rubbing! I found that I only needed to re-apply once/twice throughout the day as that was due to just how much walking we were doing! I love the smell and how it feels – if you want to try this product then you can use my code SOPHIE15 to get 15% off at the check out!
Mitchum Triple Odour Defense in Powder Fresh. Who knew I could be a snob when it comes to deodorant? I usually swap and change between brands when I run out, but oh god, I did not know I needed this until I had it. It lasts all day and doesn’t leave any white stains *hooray* and has a really fresh scent to it! I also find that it doesn’t sting after having fresher shaved arm pits which is always a bonus too!
Smelling of – Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. I have been loving using a thicker moisturiser now that I’m trying to maintain my tan! So this in shower body conditioner has been a dream – it’s made my skin feel so soft and it smells to luxurious too! I love the thickness and how it feels on the body, perfect for those Autumnal pamper evenings!
Let me know if you had any firm favourites throughout the month of September and if there’s anything new you’ll be trying in October!
