To start my blog off, I thought I would start with my monthly favourites. Enjoy!
My first favourite of the month has to be MAC 'Dare You' lipstick. I have had my eye on this lipstick now for a couple of months and finally decided to buy it. It is rather out of my comfort zone of nudes and light pinks but it feels really autumn/ winter and such a nice shade to add to my collection.
I have fallen back in love with the Benefit POREfessional primer. When I first tried this product I did not see the hype around but I have come around to the idea of how good this product is. Personally, I did not want to buy the full size in case it did react badly with my skin or simply did not work. Anyway, I have recently started using it every day and it does help to confer my pores and helps my foundation to stay on slightly longer.
The Body Shop 'Shea butter' range is one of my favourites of the whole year. When I first tried this range I wasn't too keen on the smell if I'm being honest. However, this was back in July after one of my friends gave me the gift set. All I have been using this month is the Shea butter shower cream, it is rather different from my normal Soap & Glory one but a very nice change.
For me, Topshop has been on point at the moment. I really wanted the their clean- cut ribbed jumper dress in the purple/maroon colour, however in my local store they only had it in grey. However, I just fell in love with it. What is great about it is that it doesn't itch like what some knits do. Personally, I probably would not have paid £42 for the dress but because of staff discount I just went for it.
I was over the moon when I walked into Office and they had NORMAL converse in the sale. Normally, they have the colours and patterns no one wants or the converse with hardly any base, but I was very lucky when I found this pair. For a while I have wanted the maroon coloured converse especially for this season and when I saw them I just could not say no. The colour on their website is 'charcoal'. They were still quite expensive at £33 but that it still good for converse.
