It feels absolutely insane that October is drawing to a close. It’s fuelling my excitement for Christmas, but at the same time it’s terrifying how quickly time is going. The end of the month can only mean one thing – that I give you guys the run down on things I’ve been addicted to this month.
1) Soap and Glory ‘The Fab Pore’
As a student living in a freezing cold house in these winter months, I want to spend as little time as possible faffing around after bath time. The prospect of a warm bed is always more appealing than slathering on loads of lotions and potions. A product that is definitely worth the effort (and braving the cold for an extra 10 seconds) has to be The Fab Pore. I love the tingly minty feeling I get when applying this and how the little microbeads exfoliate my skin. It’s a great two in one product for unclogging your pores and giving your face a polished smooth appearance. I’ve been using this religiously twice a week and have noticed a huge difference in my skin, so big smiles all round :).
2) Primark Stippling Brush
Paying £1.50 for a make-up tool I use every day is an absolute bargain. This nifty little brush can be used to stipple in cream blush, buff in foundation or even blend concealer under the eyes.
3) Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Blue By You
Sinful Colors are one of my favourite nail polish brands. Their formulas last on your nails for days on ends without chipping and they only cost £1.99. I’ve absolutely been loving this gorgeous blue glittery shade, the metallic feel really ties in well with the metallic trend this AW.
4) Burts Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
Readers of my ‘Glow Job’ post may be aware that I’ve been a bit ill recently and my skin/face/lips are all suffering big time. Whenever I get scaly dry lips I look no further than Burts Bees lip balms. They sink into the lips immediately and don’t give an irritating stinging feeling or taste weird.
5) Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
As a literature and history student at university, I don’t often get time to read things just for fun. To get through a non-academic book during term time is a huge rarity for me. I started reading Gone Girl in September when I first got back to university (and read a sizeable 100-page chunk in one go) but then got really busy and didn’t come back to it again. Luckily, the film came out last month and I absolutely loved it – I was literally sat on the edge of my seat and running through hundreds of theories in my head. Going to see the film encouraged me to get reading the book again and I was not disappointed. I’d recommend both the film and the book to anyone that’s into a good crime thriller.
