October Favourites 2016

What's that? A favourites post? Yup, bonjour! Slightly later than planned but hey-ho it's here.... let's just ignore the fact it's mid-November!
Now... sit down, grab a cup of rosy lee and listen to me ramble on to what I have been loving over the past month!
First up .... some Rosie For Autograph goodies! Both the original Eau de Parfum from Rosie and the large candle of the same beautiful floral scent have become my go-tos for October/November - I am in love.
A strong scent with amazing staying power - I have been getting so many compliments on my everyday scent recently with a few shocks when I say what it is.... nope not Chanel or Dior!
I still can't get over how much of a bargain this range is with the 30ml scent at £14 and the candle only £15 these are definitely a duo I will be re-purchasing! I cannot get enough of this range.... like, seriously - if you haven't tried out any of the cosmetics or fragrances yet... do it!

Next up - the Moroccanoil Treatment. I can easily say this is hands down the best hair oil I've ever tried and I'm not quite sure how I managed to live without it for so long to be quite honest with you all!
 After months of living off cheaper versions I decided to invest once more in my favourite little hair treat and two bottles down I'm not regretting it.
These are around £13 fo r a 30ml .... which made sound alot but this stuff lasts me at least a month/6 weeks per bottle, and I use a fair bit of it each time I wash my hair - I always worry when it start to run low... definitely something for my Christmas list!

Make-up now and .... ermahgerd, this duo from Charlotte Tilbury is just heaven.
If you are looking for some make-up to invest in I cannot receommend Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow enough. This bronzer and highlight duo is a MUST in my everyday routine now - from sitting in the office in a hoodie to going on a night out with the girls, I use this palette.
I use the bronze to contour and give me a bit of colour and the highlight to give me a subtle gorgeous glow - I cannot get enough of this, I will 100% be repurchasing when the time comes (even with it's hefty price tag!).

Also on the cosmetic train, another liquid lipstick that's been added to my every growing collection. Since trying out Soft Spoken by NYX months ago (and talking about it non-stop) I knew it was about time I invested in another. Well, I didn't go crazy and yes I just went for anothe nude, but you can really never have too many nude lippys can you?!

This time I went for NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm - basically a liquid lipstick version of Velvet Teddy from MAC and I have been reaching for this nearly everyday! Nudes are my go-to's for everyday, I jsut find them so easy and tend not have have to re-apply them every hour like other shades like red that you really have to commit too! Compared to other liquid lipsticks on the market too these are a steal and the quality is amazing.

Non-beauty favourites now and well... I have a few.
Of course HAMILTON is still my life. I cannot get enough and don't think I ever will. The thought of being able to finally see it live next year literally makes me want to burst into tears, I mean even seeing the theatre front recently had me go into meltdown/fangirl/emotional crying mode!
I have had Lady Gaga - Joanne on ALOT, Gaga is definitley back and better than ever on the music front, so many amazing songs on this album.

I've been watching a lot of Black Mirror, which has had me baffled, traumatized , shocked and overthinking everything every single episode. Some of them are just total genius and some of them are just totally f***ed up, but they always get you thinking! (It reminds me a little of Inside No9.... so if you have enjoyed that then give it a go!)

The Vampire Diaires is back which is awesome, kind of sad that it's the last season but at the same time probably is about time!
Total Bellas of course has been my favourite song of the moment - I love Nikki & Brie a little TOO much.... I'm so glad that Total Divas starts back soon aswell.... can someone help me train to be a wrestler please?
