Monthly Favourites

Every month I'll be reviewing and blogging about some beauty products, clothing and other random stuff that I've really liked that month. 

The first product that I really love is the Rimmel Lodnon Scandeleyes Mascara in Extreme Black. I’m literally obsessed with mascara , I can never use a whole tube before buying a new one. I'm always buying mascara . I first used this back in my first year of uni and fell in love with it ever since. I've recently re-purchased this before going back to uni because I knew it would be reliable during freshers week . It definitely gives my lashes a more  volumized look and leaves them clump free.

Collection Luscious Lashes Natural is another beauty product that I'm loving at the moment. I don't normally wear fake eyelashes on nights because I never thought they suited me , but I picked these up spontaneously because they were on offer at the time. They're really affordable at £2.99 which is really good considering I don't wear fake eyelashes and trying them out. I would really recommend these for first time users or for people on a budget because they are really good quality and easy to apply(If I can  apply them anyone can do it ).The only issue is that you do have to apply quite a bit of glue for them to firmly stick ,especially in the corners. But they are re-usable , although I have had to re-purchase them a few times because I'm forever losing them on nights out (my fault not the products) 

One of my favourite hair care products ever is Batiste Dry Shampoo , so when I heard that they have a dry conditioner I had to try it out. I don't know why but I find the concept of dry conditioner a little weird but I guess it's pretty much like a leave in conditioner. Just like their dry shampoo it smells really nice but a little artificial. It did leave my hair really smooth and shinny though .Because I have dark hair I was worried that it would leave  white 'dust' in my hair but it didn't which is a bonus. 

I'm really lazy when it comes to my skin care routine. Its really bad to admit that but I never find the time to do everything and being back at uni my skin care routine is just one more thing I need to remember to do.Also I dont like the thought of using too many products on my face , so Nivea Daily Essentials 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner is perfect. Being a 2 in 1 product means I'm using less products on my face and I'm cutting down time on my skincare routine, which means I have more time for to get on with my uni work( suppose to be anyway). I think having a good toner and cleanser is really important especially if your skin isn't in a great condition . This product makes your skin look and feel really fresh and soft . I pretty much use it both in the morning and at night and it lasts for ages as well because you only need to apply a small amount of it . I really like the smell of it too. It smells a bit of sun cream which is weird but it always reminds me of summer. 

I'm loving the fact that it is Autumn because I finally wear my White Faux Fur Headband from New Look which I bought this  back in mid September. I saw it in store and bought it because I was scared by the time Autumn came around it wouldn't be in store anymore. I was really excited to wear it the other day because it was finally cold enough to wear it . The only problem was that it was raining outside and I didn't want to get it wet so I just wore it around the house. Its so soft , I love it . Definitely going to be wearing all winter.

The first non fashion / beauty item on the list is the TV series Fresh meat. I discovered this when I got Netflix when I got back to uni. I must of watched 2 series in about a day, It's a seriously good handover cure . I love everything with Jack Whitehall in , he never fails to make me laugh.So happy when they put series three up but I'm feel lost now that I've watched all of them now.

The second non fashion / beauty item that I've been loving this month is Ariana Grande's new album (My Everything). I didn't know what to expect from this album and it didn't disappoint , its probably my favourite album that I've listened to in a long time. I pretty much love every song  . Its constantly on repeat when I'm doing my uni work . She has definitely ditched the Nickelodeon/Disney image that she had in her previous album for a more grown up and honest image. Highlights on the album:  One Last Time , My Everything, We Try , J
ust a Little Bit of Your Heart ,Problem & Break Free.
