October Favourites

Can you believe that October is OVER?

Now it’s November and then it will be CHRISTMAS.

THEN!!!! 2016.

I don’t normally say that a year goes quickly really, I just think a month’s a month but since having the baba I feel like time is going so much faster. So as we’re now into November I thought I would do my October favourites now, there’s some beauty, some baby and some randoms- I hope you enjoy.

I’ve not tried many No7 products, I have no reason for that it’s just never really appealed to me, but I had a little look after I enjoyed my tinted moisturiser and I got talking to the lady behind the counter and she suggested this concealer for my under eyes as you know I’m so self conscious about that! I was with my best friend at the time, she’s looking to re-do her whole make-up collection and I’m in charge of that job, which I’m so excited about being buying make-up is literally my favourite thing, and if you get to do it with you best friend doesn’t it just make it so much better?

O.P.I are my favourite nail polish brand. I don’t use a base coat with these lacquers, please don’t shout at me! I apply two coats of the polish I then go over it with the O.P.I quick dry top coat, which is perfect for me because I am so impatient with polish drying times. I’ve been meaning to invest in one of those quick dry sprays- have any of you tried them? Let me know if it’s worth buying one. If you’re looking for a big bright pop of colour during these miserable months (In England anyway) I’ve got this red in Big Apple Red and I would really recommend it. Red nails always makes me feel very grown up, like I’m an important lady with her whizz together! (O.P.I Polish is going in my giveaway, keep your eyes peeled)

Caudalie is a brand that reminds me of my nan, I’ve enjoyed a few of their products in the past and enjoyed all of them but they’ve been easily forgotten. I’ve mentioned before my love for facial oils and how much I’m enjoying my cleansing oil but this is a new purchase it’s half oil half serum, it’s the perfect consistency, this one is from John Lewis and retails for £49, it has such a fresh scent and glides on beautifully. I apply this before bed on my face after cleansing with the Clinique Balm. I wake up in the morning to a baby skin soft face.

He loves it, it makes noises when it’s moved and the blue flower spins, it’s fantastic, Oscar loves the bright colours and it’s so easily put on and taken off and folds down nicely for travel.

It’s great value for money too at only £24.95.

These sleep suits from Mamas and Papas are FANTASTIC! They are perfect breathable material and it honestly doesn’t matter how many times you wash them the pictures don’t crack like they do on some others. They keep baba so warm and M+P have some beautiful patterns, whether you’re into your bright colours or muted and neutral there’s something for everyone! They’ve also got all their Christmas stock in and most of that can be personalised I’ve already spent waaaaay too much money. They’re on 3 for 2 at the moment and the picture has a link so make sure you get your hands on these before the offer runs out.

It has a lovely smell to it and leaves his skin feeling so soft, don’t get me wrong he still has all his dry patches and his eczema but at least this doesn’t make it flare up and make it worse.

I absolutely love sweet candles and this one is so perfect, beautiful sweet scents and lasts hours and hours and I think they always make the house smell like you’ve been baking. Truly fantastic and makes me feel like I should be snuggled up with a hot chocolate and a Christmas movie.
