September Favourites ☆

This month I have quite a few favourites, everything from beauty, lifestyle and other favourites. 
First up lets talk beauty, here are some of my beauty favourites:

1) Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural: I was really excited to try this out, because I had heard so much about it, and let me just tell you I fell in love the fist time I used it. The Mineralize Skinfinish is the best finishing powder I have used so far, and it is a must have. It leaves your skin feeling soft and looking flawless, it blurs imperfections and looks nice and light on your skin. Your makeup can not look cakey if you have this gem on.

2) Too Faced Chocolate Bar: First of all, can we please talk about the adorable packaging, I'm a sucker for cute packaging, so thats a huge bonus for me, also when you open it, it actually smells like chocolate! The range of nudes is great too, from shimmery shades to matte, this palette has them all. The eyeshadows are pigmented,  long lasting, and you can work with these shades both day and night. I personally love the baby pink and the shimmery light pink. I think this is the perfect neutral palette to own, since it has a versatile range of neutral shades.  

3) Too Faced Sweethearts blush in Candy Glow
I'll be honest with you; the real reason I bought this blush was because of the cute baby pink heart that the product was in. But, even the blush itself was surprisingly great. The blush gives your cheeks a perfect rosy pink colour and subtle glow. What I love most about this blush is that; it plays the role of a highlighter as well as a blush, and who doesn't love multitasking products.

4) Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: This is my holy grail foundation at the moment, it gives you the perfect coverage, covers all imperfections, stays put all day and makes your skin look fresh and alive. It's the best. 

5) Baby Doll Kiss & Blush (no.9): So I have a love-hate relationship with this product. First of all, I love the packaging; it looks like a fancy nail polish bottle. Other than that, I adore the colour, it's a very pretty pastel, medium rose pink. In my opinion, it's a pretty and unique mix of pastel and medium pink. It looks lovely on the cheeks, and works as a great cheek tint, however it doesn't last all day, the colour starts to fade after a couple of hours. On the lips, it looks nice too, however I  feel the need to keep re-applying it every now and then, which puts me off. I also wish it was a little more matte. However, it still is my go to lip and cheek product, simply because, it is a multitasker, it also feels quite nice on the lips, because of its creamy texture, and like I said earlier its a beautiful and unique shade of pink, which I can't seem to get enough of.

6) Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser: This is my favourite cream cleanser of all time. It has helped a lot with my blemishes so far, and even other wise. I've also been getting compliments on my naked skin, and I predict it's the result of this beauty. The cream has a thick consistency, and you basically massage the cream on your face and neck, take the muslin cloth, wet it with warm water, gently massage your face with the cloth, and then wash your face with cold/normal water. This leaves your skin feeling super soft and squeaky clean. It also does a good job removing your makeup. I'm really loving this so far, and I would recommend you try it too, I think it would work for all skin types, so give it a go. 

7) Clearasil Rapid Action Pads: I was not sure if this was going to work well or not, but these rapid action pads have proven to be a lifesaver product for my skin. I use them when my acne starts to show up, and/or when I'm having troubled skin days or weeks, where my blemishes don't seem to be going away, I'll just use one of the pads before bed, and wake up with half of them already gone or less visible. 

Lifestyle Favourites:

Little Twin Stars 2014-15 Planner

1) Little Twin Stars Planner: I love how sweet this dairy/planner is, It's so pastel and adorable. I use this for noting down my homework, making to-do lists, taking notes and sometimes for writing down my thoughts. It has the calendar, space for notes and planning each day, and it comes with a pack of pretty little stickers. Every page is sweetly designed, and just looking at it makes you happy.  It makes staying organized 'fun', and it acts as a mood booster for me too. 

2) Frends Taylor Layla Headphones (Rose Gold): I've been wanting these headphones for at least two years now, so you can imagine how excited I was to finally have gotten them. Their not cheap, but their gorgeous, everything about them is elegant and chic, from the rose gold colour to the fashionable design. The sound quality could have been better, having said that it's not bad either. They come with a white pouch, which is very handbag and travel friendly, which makes life a lot easier. Anyway, I've been loving these headphones ever since I got them, I love how the look, and the whole idea of such beautiful headphones. 

3) Sleep Sommeil massage oil and body cream (lavender chamomile) Bath & Body works: For as long as I can remember, I've had a huge problem falling asleep at  night, and this has been a huge help. Ever since I started using this my nights have never been better, the lavender and chamomile scent is so calming. Both the massage oil and body cream, help calm me down and sleep better. 

Other Favourites: 

1) Leah McFall Home ft Such a lovely song, Leah's voice is beautiful, and I'm also loving the music video♡.

2) ASOS: For over two years now, I've been obsessed with the online store, ASOS, and now days, I've found myself mostly just shopping from ASOS. I love the fact that it's online, ships FREE worldwide, and has the cutest stuff. It's got stuff for everyone, and at affordable to reasonably prices. ASOS sells fashion, beauty, accesories and other gifts and pieces from different brands, as well as their own. I can always find a number of things that are of my style and taste, which is basically anything cute and pastel, but whatever your style is, you'll find tons of stuff you'll like at ASOS, like I said; they have got stuff for everyone. 

3) Once Upon A Time: OUAT is back, and this year Storybrooke is frozen,  which obviously means Elsa is in town, yes the one and only; Elsa, queen of Arendelle. I was a little scared as to how they would fit her and the rest of the frozen characters in the story, but it's all coming together, and the show keeps getting more and more interesting. So far I'm really enjoying the season, and I'm looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

I hope you enjoyed this freakishly long favourites post, and I would love to know some of your beauty, fashion, lifestyle or/and any other favourites, leave a comment and let me know.
