October Favourites | 12

It's November! We are slowly creeping towards Christmas (seriously, where has the time gone?!) and probably have many cold and rainy days ahead of us. Despite the rain, darker nights and cold days I have to admit I quite like this time of year. Anyway I have a little handful of favourite's from the month of October to share with you all today!

Essie - Not Just A Pretty Face
A gorgeous pink/nude shade which has been perfect for days at work. I very recently did a little post on this one here!

Barry M's - Rose Quartz Glitter
This should probably come as no surprise. I absolutely love this glitter polish!! I've also done a post on this here!

Johnson's Hand Cream with Shea & Cocoa Butters
I'm often using hand creams and try to look after my hands. As I work in care I wash my hands very regularly so my hands can become dry so I couldn't live without a decent hand cream! I've been loving this one in particular as it smells delicious (like cocoa butter), feels moisturising and soaks in to the hands nice and quickly. This is great for when I'm out and about and don't want slippery, greasy hands after applying some hand cream.

Clarins - Daily Energizers Great Skin Kit
Over the last two weeks I've been dipping my toes in the Clarins skin care pool. This little kit is £15 and contains four decent sized products, so I thought it would be a nice way to try something a little different. I've been using these products daily and I've really enjoyed using them. They make my skin feel refreshed, clean and soft. I'll be doing a post on this kit very soon so keep an eye out if you're interested.

The Body Shop - Big and Curvy Mascara
This mascara was a freebie in a magazine recently, I picked this out of my make up bag last week and thought I'd give it a go. The brush is quite thin and if this isn't applied right it can quickly clump and look like a bit of a heavy mess. But if it is applied right this can add some definition and curve to the lashes. I've been so impressed with how long it's lasted, towards the end of the day my lashes often sort of drop with some mascaras but this holds the curve so well. 

Yann Martel - Life of Pi
I've been reading this book on and off over the last month, to begin with I struggled to get in to the story. However I'm just under 100 pages away from the end of this book and it's really  roped me in. It's very well written, interesting and original. Although it's very different to what I normally go for this is a book that I've heard many people mention over the years and now I can see why. It's a very unique story. Life of Pi has actually been made in to a film as I was surprised to see a trailer for it at the cinema the other night. If you'd like to know more about this book then click here or here (official trailer)

Tesco - Grey Fingerless Gloves
I spotted this in Tesco's for the bargain price of £3.50 and thought they looked so cute! I've been wearing these often as they have been perfect for the not warm but not freezing weather. I love the little flower corsages!

The Killers - Battle Born
I actually grabbed this album for my boyfriend as he's a Killer's fan and ended up falling in love with it myself, the boyfriend loves it to. This album has quickly become one of my favourite albums, I love pretty much every single track and have been listening to this constantly! Some of my favourite tracks are; 'Be Still', 'Here With Me', 'The Way It Was', 'Heart of a Girl', 'Runaways' and 'Deadlines and Commitments'. This album is quite chilled in my opinion, ahhh I love it. Click here to listen to 'Be Still', it's a really beautiful song - great lyrics.

-The new bond movie! I really enjoyed this film, I want to watch it again! It definitely lived up to all the hype. Daniel Craig... swooon :)
-Hot chocolates 

I hope you all had a lovely October, what have been your monthly favourite's?
