September Favourites 2018

Is it just me, or it this year just flying by? I'm worried if I blink, I'll open my eyes and I'll be a Grandma! September was a busy month for me, but I still enjoyed quite a few beauty products as well as YouTube and Netflix!

My first favourite this month is the Madam Glam Nail Powders. Nail powders are a brilliant way to amp up your gel nails and make them look stunning. Madam Glam is also a brand that is cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and 5-free; meaning they're free from formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor... so they're non-toxic! I know that seems like a mouthful, but being a beautician; finding a salon-quality gel nail brand is hard to come by, so I'm super pleased I found them! 

I've also been putting more effort into my skincare routine, and I've been using the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. It's 5% Glycolic Acid, which is a great Alpha Hydroxy Acid that really helps improve your skin texture, scarring, fine lines and exfoliates. It's low strength, so you can you it's daily and I've found it works pretty well. If you'd like to know more about exfoliators and AHA's I have a blog post all about them, and how to choose the right one for your skin type.

Exfoliators: Why, What and How?!

As we moved into Autumn, I started wearing darker, Autumnal lipsticks. I've been loving this Nyx Lip Lingerie liquid lipstick in the shade Exotic. It's a perfect deeper red, that almost looks like a more tinted red lip, perfect for the transition between seasons. It's long lasting, and non-drying too, just what I look for in a good liquid lipstick.

I may have accidentally waxed off a chunk of my eyebrow while testing out my new wax pot, late at night when it was quite dark... Yep, very typical of me. I'm brilliant with other peoples eyebrows but mess up my own! So, as a result, I've been attempting to grow my eyebrows back. I had heard good things about using castor oil for hair growth, and I've been using this Etrong Organic, Cold Pressed Castor Oil. I have to say, after a month or so of using it, I've definitely noticed a difference. It's become part of my evening routine now, and I'll certainly be keeping it up.

My only clothing favourite this month is this jumper from Primark, that has cute Harry Potter characters on it! It's adorable, comfortable and easy to throw on with a pair of leggings. I've been wearing it several times a week, I love it that much!

This month, Eric and I binge watched Netflix and one of my favourite series we got through was Disenchantment. It's by the same people who did The Simpsons and Futurama, and it's very noticeable. I do find it far funnier though, with more crude humour, which is what I love about it. If you fancy a good laugh, give this series a try!

Aaaaaand for my last favourite, but certainly not least. It has to be Shane Dawson and his docu-series on YouTube. Most recently his series on The Mind of Jake Paul, but I've also loved The Secret Life of Jeffree Star and The Truth About Tanacon. Shane is KILLING it with content on YouTube lately and I'm obsessed. He not only builds tension and anticipation for his videos, which no one else has been able to do with YouTube, but he has EVERYONE talking about it. I'm glad Shane is getting the attention and love he deserves, and I can't wait for the rest of his series on Jake Paul in October.

I'm excited for the rest of the year, October to December are my favourite months when it comes to activities and things to do (not so much the weather, yuk). There's Halloween, pumpkin carving, bonfire night, Christmas lights, and all sorts! Here's to a fun-filled end of 2018!
