MY OCTOBER 2013 FAVOURITES

This month has brought along with it lots of changes, starting uni and a lovely little holiday!

These are the items I have been using and loving most during the past month.


Happy Jackson

 1. Happy Jackson Futile Attempt At Organising My Life A6 Notebook

I recently posted a mini-stationary haul, where I featured this notebook (you can see what it looks like better here).  I absolutely love Happy Jackson’s range of products – they have got so many quirky/funny products, and are not just limited to stationary!  They’ve also got some great gifts and homeware – I want it all!  Happy Jackson is available at John Lewis or online at Temptation Gifts.  I have found my notebook essential this month as I’ve tried to get super-organised for uni!

Soap and Glory

2. Soap & Glory Clean On Me / Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter [Both Travel Size]

I have been doing lots of traveling during the past month and although I didn’t want to leave my Soap & Glory Clean On Me shower gel at home, I didn’t fancy carrying around 500ml of product everywhere I went – and so I decided to purchase the mini 75ml version (£2.50 from Boots, also on 3-for-2).  I’ve been amazed at just how long this product will last me – I thought I wouldn’t have any left after a week on holiday but I’ve still got loads left – hooray!  I’ve also been loving The Righteous Butter, which I had not previously tried out – it smells just like Clean On Me (i.e. AMAZING) and leaves my skin feeling really soft!  This is also available for £2.50 from Boots.

Real Techniques

3. Real Techniques Powder Brush

I have been absolutely loving Real Techniques’ Powder Brush this month!  I previously only owned the Expert Face Brush, which I found great for applying and blending in my foundation. The Powder Brush is really big, fluffy and soft – perfect for applying powder!   I have also been using this to dust some bronzing powder over my face.  I don’t think that Real Techniques will ever let me down.  The brush is quite affordable at £12.99 from Boots.

Maybelline Color Tattoo

4. Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR ‘On and On Bronze’

I have loved this gel-cream eyeshadow ever since it made its way into my life last summer (I even did a review about it here).  However, I have been loving it and appreciating it even more during the past month as I haven’t always had time to apply/blend powder eyeshadow in the mornings.  With this I could just apply some to my eyelids using my little finger, apply some liquid liner over the top, mascara and that’s my eyes done!  The eyeshadow lasts all day and I find that ‘On and On Bronze’ is a really versatile colour, which looks lovely both during the day and at night!  This costs £4.99 from Boots, and they’ve got some other lovely colours in the range too!

Sleek Brow Kit

 5. Sleek Brow Kit in ‘Light’


Finally, this is a product I have purchased only at the beginning of the month!  I have reviewed it here.  Like all the other Sleek products I own, this has not let me down!  The brow kit includes a pigmented wax, powder, two small brushes and a pair of tweezers.  It’s easy to use and helps me achieve a defined, yet still natural looking brow and I could not recommend this enough to anyone looking for an affordable brow kit!  It is available from Superdrug at £8.49.

Have you tried any of the products I’ve been loving on this month?  What products have you been loving?
