October Favourites

Happy November!
^  That is all I've had written for the last two hours because I found out that Taylor Swift is at the Teen Awards and I could have gone. So I suppose I should actually start this now.
The start of October seems like ages ago now, and I can't really remember what happened but I'm sure it was good. Aside from that, I really have loved many things the past month, so let's get started.

I only brought one new item of clothing this month *shock horror!* but I most definitely love it. I got an oversized baseball top from New Look. They have it in various colours but I got it in a deep burgundy, a colour that I have really loved lately. It's so big and comfy and would look great with both skirts and jeans.

Skin Care
This month my skin has been annoying bad so I've had to invest in some new things in an attempt to keep further outbreaks at bay. The first of which are these Spotless Skin Quick Fix Cleansing Wipes by Simple. They have really helped to clean my skin much more than my usual make up wipes do. However, I do not really see them as a replacement for my make up wipes, rather as an extra thing to use, or if I haven't worn any make up, like today.

My second skin care favourite this month has been the Clean & Clear Advantage Fast Action Spot Treatment Gel. This really helps prevent nasty spots from gracing my skin and also to reduce the redness of already existing ones, which is always helpful on early morning before school. My only negative I have about this is that the first time I use it on a certain area of skin I find that it actually makes the spot redder so I tend to use it first at night so no one can see, but once I've used it once, its fine.

Soapy Stuff
I had no idea what to call this little category.
But as far as 'soapy stuff' goes I've really been loving my Plum Lily Swirl shower gel from Bath and Bodyworks. My friend brought this back from America with her a few months back but I have only recently started loving it. It claims to smell of many different things but as far as my nose is concerned I just smell cucumber. But it's definitely a nice cucumber. I wish I had more of it though as I've nearly run out and it will be hard to get some here in the UK.

This next product amazes me. It's the Strawberry Laces soap by Carex. This stuff smells so good it's unbelievable. I've never smelt soap so good. When I've washed my hands the smells stays on them for a while and isn't rubbed if straight away.

Make Up
I've not really brought any new make up this month but my favourite is still the same product as it has been for a while now. That is the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Fibre in Black. I really do love this mascara and I'm not planning on stopping so any time soon.

I did a whole post on this a few weeks ago, which you can check out here, but my favourite for the month of October has definitely been Wonderstruck Enchanted by the beautiful Taylor Swift. This girl must smell amazing. I find the perfume, that's full of notes of berries and fruit, great for these colder winter months as it just smells so warm and cosy. I absolutely love it.

As some of you might know, I watch way to much TV for what is considered to be normal. This month I have really loved Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Blacklist and Castle. Castle doesn't start here until January, but you can catch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Fridays at 8pm on 4, and then The Blacklist at 9mp on Sky Living, also on a Friday.

I've been loving a lot of new music this month, a lot of which is by Kodaline. I have become obsessed with their album In a Perfect World, and I especially love After the Fall, High Hopes and All Comes Down To.
October also brought the episode of Glee that addressed the passing of Cory Monteith, which included some great music. The episode was great, albeit rather emotional, but the music is even better, I think. The songs are well picked and you can really here the emotion in the voices of those singing them.

This is a bit of an odd one, but one I thought worthy on an inclusion. The social site I have been loving the past month is 8tracks. 8tracks is a site where you can create and share playlists of your favourite music. I love the concept and have never really come across anything else like it before. There is over one million playlists and you can search though them by using key words so you can easily find one to fit your mood.

Sorry about the lack of pictures but my laptop decided that it hates me this evening and everything I try and use it for. I'll try and add some tomorrow.
Have a great week!
