October Loves

Hi Girls,
I cannot believe it's November already, so as it's the start of a new month I thought I would do a post on what I've been loving in October. I also wanted to apologise for my absence over the last couple of weeks, I've been having a few personal problems and they have taken up all my time and energy over the last few weeks. It's amazing how guilty I feel for missing only a few weeks, I've been itching to get back!
Here's a few things I've been loving this month:

Li‘l Lush Pud
This was my first ever Lush purchase and I loved it! My skin smelt lovely afterwards and I could still smell it in my bathroom the next day! I've just made another order to Lush so I'll let you know what goodies I've got. If you've never tried Lush I would highly recommend you do. I've always been a bit nervous about Lush because whenever I've been in the shop I felt overwhelmed by all the different types of products and I wasn't sure what any of them did. I finally took the plunge and read their Lush Times paper and I feel like I understand what's what now!

My Dorothy Perkins ring

OPI Sparkle-icious
This is from the Burlesque Collection. Such a fun polish which I'm going to be wearing lots between now and Christmas. It will be great for all the parties over Christmas! It was really easy to apply and dried super quick.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and MAC Studio Fix Foundation NC15
I'll be doing a review on these two in the next couple of weeks so I'll talk about them more in depth then.
I'm in love with MAC Studio Fix foundation, I know this is probably an old one for most of you but I have only just tried this for the first time this month. I bought the pump too, I thought it would be too fiddly to try and tip it out and would end up wasting lots of product too which you definately don't want!

Upcoming things I will be reviewing:
La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm
Part 1 of my perfume collection
Mac Studio Fix Foundation
Fade Out Eye Cream
H2O+ sea-derived skincare

Hope you all had a brilliant Halloween!

  1. Hope you've managed to get everything sorted!

    I find that the only time I really use Lush goodies is over the Christmas period - it's really odd cos I actually love their stuff but I guess I've just gotten into the habit of associating it with winter!

    Looking forward to the upcoming reviews because I've been considering the MAC studio finish for AGES but havent been able to convince myself to splash out on it. Gotta love the Liz Earle cleanser though - such a simple idea to use the clothes but it really works and I love the smell :)

  2. Love the ring and the nail polish! I've got a mini bottle of the Liz Earle Cleanser. I've tried it once, and I loved it! I'm just trying to use up all my other cleansers first before cracking open the Earle properly! xx

  3. I love the ring and the nail color a lot :) I am a new follower

    Hope you drop by my blog too

  4. Ohhhh, I keep on seeing lush and liz earle products in various reviews and cannot find them in Greece..... So jealous....:(

  5. Nice post :)I LOVE big rings!
    Sad to admit it but I am a Lush virgin, that pud looks amazing though! All their stuff looks so nice and I can't wait to order some. Only thing is I have very sensitive skin, so hopefully it'll be ok :)

  6. Where have you been?!! You've won an award! Check out my blog:)
