September 2014 Beauty and Random Favorites

Hello Everyone! Here are some items I have been enjoying throughout the month of September.

1. Essie Nail Varnish in Luxedo

This is such a gorgeous shade! A really deep cherry red, which in some lights looks black. I'm sure I'll continue loving this shade as we move into the winter months.

2. Lush Instablur Cleanser

This cleanser has become a staple in my night time routine because it is so nourishing. I massage the balm to remove my make-up- even tough mascara is no problem. I then wipe it off with a muslin cloth and wet my face slightly to remove any remaining oil.

3. The Body Shop Mango Body Wash

I cannot get enough of the smell of this body wash. I love it when you use a shower gel/ body wash which has a lasting scent, especially one as delicious as this.

4. MAC Lipstick in Peach Blossom 

I have been on a search for my perfect nude and I think I may have found in in peach blossom. Funnily enough I wouldn't say this wasn't a peach but more of a slightly brown toned pink.  It's SO beautiful.

5. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

I won't go on about this one because there must be thousands of reviews about this product. Believe it or not I've never actually owed a concealer because I don't really have problem skin but I have started getting a few spots recently and decided to take action. I've really been enjoying using this and setting it with my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and I know it won't budge.

6. The Divergent Trilogy

These books were recommended to me by a friend as I really enjoyed the Hunger Games Trilogy. The second book was by far my favorite and I really enjoyed these action packed stories.I didn't have the 'I can't bare to put this book down' phase which I did with the Hunger Games Trilogy but for lovers of that series I think this trilogy will attempt to fill the void left on completion of the Hunger Games.

7. Topshop Mom Jeans in Black

A classic, flattering shape which is quite simply an everyday favorite.

8. Sam Smith 'In The Lonely Hour' CD

I don't think this CD is a 'monthly favorite' more a 'life favorite', I adore Sam Smith. In this album I have found near perfection. My only one issue with the album is that my favorite song called Nirvana is not included! Such a shame because the rest of the album is SO amazing.

9. Waitrose Homous

A bit of a weird one but I thought why not! I adore this stuff and it is THE nicest homous around and I feel I can say that because I have tried a lot.

10. Cinnamon and Rasin Bagel

My family have never actually been bagel people but these were quite a revelation. They are so delicious for breakfast with a light spread of butter. I love anything cinnamony so these are right up my street.

I hope you enjoyed this post :)
