September Favourites

I know, I know - I'm 5 days late to the September favourites party, but the end of the month was absolutely caaaaaraaazy and I've barely had a minute to sit down and think!
I've also been on a spending ban over the last month as the reality of planning a wedding AND moving out has hit home and my lippy buying obsession has had to be put on the back burner (for now...), which means this month my faves are a little less exciting than I'd like.

I have been loving however, my Benefit skincare duo - It's Potent eye cream and the Triple Performing facial emulsion. If you've been reading my blog for a little while, I'm sure you'll know how loyal I am to my Origins GinZing eye cream and moisturiser but since the colder weather has set in, my skin needed a little bit more.The Benefit moisturiser is a lot thicker and hydrating than the Origins offering, which is perfect for my dryer skin and the eye cream does wonders for adding a little bit of OOOMPH in a morning - especially after all my recent late nights!
In one of the recent Birchboxes, I received a sample of the Rituals Ayurveda Scrub. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting to love it but after trying it on a whim one day, it has quickly become one of  my favourite pamper products. As scrub-clay mask hybrid, it is a dream to apply as you can really feel the dirt and dry skin dissolving from your body and I feel my skin literally tingle with cleanliness everytime I use it. Definite thumbs up.

Now that Winter is on it's way, so are the dreaded chapped lips and as I'm determined to avoid them this year, I've been using the Popcorn lip scrub from Lush at every opportunity. I adore the scent and taste of this adorable little pot and it works wonders for those after-effects of wearing too much matte lipstick!
It didn't take me long to ditch the pastel nail polish for the vampy nail shades, and my favourite of the minute is the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry polish in 'Sprint Finish'. I wrote a little post about it here, but I am in LOVE with the colour and the fact it takes, like, 3.5 seconds to paint my nails. Winner!

A while ago after placing a spontaneous ASOS order, I picked up these patent nude loafers from Daisy Street - and I don't think I've taken them off since! They are super comfy and took no breaking in at all, and go with just about everything in my wardrobe whether it be smart or casual. The best part though? They were only £14 at the time!
My last favourite of September is something me and my other half are completely ADDICTED to at the minute - Hunted. It's a documentary on All 4 at the moment about real-life UK citizens who are challenged to go on the run for 28 days around the country without being caught by the worlds best detectives. Sounds seriously geeky but I challenge you to not watch one episode and become hooked!

I am also dying to purchase a pair of nude loafers, they are just so pretty! And a Lush lip scrub is always essential during this time of year!
