Hello October my old friend

I’ve waited for you all year October.

I love October because….

  • It is now officially autumn
  • It gets darker sooner so can get all snuggled up under fluffy blankets.
  • It’s my birthday in this month
  • Halloween… When not all the trick or treaters don’t come and there’s sweets left over.

It also not the best month for one reason: I lost my brother last year. So it’s always going to be a little bit sad. But I like to remember the happy times I had with him.

What’s your favourite month and why?

Wish Bits and bobs

You know and I know that when you buy from wish you really dunno what your getting until it arrives…

Sometimes they’ve sent the wrong thing out (there’s no option for that item so it’s pot luck out of the ones in that description … A Wait and see)

But I thought I’d show you the things I got from there and I like 😊

Love me a phone case that not everyone else is going to have so these two are cool because I love watermelons so these were actually FREE so it was just £1 for postage.

I mean who doesn’t want some pretty pens. So these are all different colours. The collection of pens are gel and different colours and the flamingo pen is like biro. Just paying postage for these too which is just great.

This was my first purchase and yes I miss my long hair terribly.

The Tshirt was a bit tight fitting around my derriere so I cut it into a cropped tee and wore a strappy top underneath. Clothes from a different country like China you never know the fit so it’s a take a risk and hope for the best.

These ear pods I was expecting to be piss poor quality and a waste of £4 and £3 delivery but they have proved themselves and I reckon are up there with apple, obviously the sound quality is not as crisp but if you just want them for general use then they are fab and come in black, white and rose gold.

Lastly a pill box. I always need to take some tablets throughout the day and taking all the boxes can be bulky so just putting what I need in this little cute flamingo box is ideal. I believe it was FREE and £1 for postage.

So my advice is have a nose and take the plunge for a couple of quid.

Til next time

September Faves

It’s the 9th month of favourites… I can’t believe how fast the year has gone. Blink and it’ll be Christmas 😁

So let’s start with a this duvet set that was my favourite before it even arrived. I fell in love with it online and thought yes you’ll make me very happy… Its so snuggly and warm I feel like hibernating in it every night.


I am a sucker for nail varnishes that last and look good so these  two by Barry M look just like gel but are infact Molten Metal shades 💅🏼

The pink one is so me and the purple one is a perfect autumnal colour.

A bit of pampering has taken place through the month of September and this weekend I had a spa stay with my Mum and Sister in law to be Kerry it was nice to chill out and it all started with this delicious cream tea.


I have always loved poetry, I will have to look out the book I made age 7 or 8…it was hilarious. However I am inspired by this wonderful poet to write and publish my own poetry book
Maya Angelou… and this is one of her fab books.
A must read.

So there are a few of my favourite things…

What are some of yours?

Leopard Print Obsession

It’s been a fair few years that I’ve been obsessed with leopard print and I somehow have just added a little handbag, trainers and some boots to it too. So I thought I’d share a few pics I found on my phone and then some pics I took of items I have to hand.Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter. I’ve got my footwear covered.Over the years I’ve of course took a selfie or two and these feature a bit of leops.Then of course you can’t not accessorise without adding it to the mix. These are my bags and make up pouches.


I don’t think personally it will ever go out of fashion. My mum said it was around in her days and that’s years ago 😂

Do you love or loathe it… I guess it’s not to everyone’s taste

Monthly favourites August

Summer is nearly over… I am actually secretly glad as I am a lover of wrapping up and all things autumn.

August has been a scorcher again and I’ve got a little tan which is a first for me

As you know my favourites posts I really look forward to writing and seeing what bought me joy that month.

Here is what I’ve been loving

CONFU FOLDING HAIRDRYER

My other hairdryer had lasted a good 4 years which is a record as I kept breaking them at one point.

I didn’t want a super powerful one as my hair is short so I saw this nifty fold up one for £25 and thought it was perfect for when you go away, and it’s rose gold too.

IPAD PENCIL (APPLE DUPE )

5CAF8B49-F48C-448D-AE61-35B2A587113B

So I downloaded a few sketch apps and then thought I can’t do it with my fingers 🙈 silly me and a plain stylus just wasn’t cutting it. So this Apple Pencil dupe for £27 works on my iPad and also my Huawei and I believe it works on a Samsung phone too and probably an iPhone. I really do love it and I believe the actual apple pencil is £129 or there abouts. So a bargain indeed.

MILANI BIGGER LASHES MASCARA

C52C394A-0D97-4399-A8C3-259CF5D8C461

I have been using this mascara over a few months and I have to say for £10 it’s a lot better than the likes of benefit and L’Oréal. It gives me the full lashes I want without using falsies.

WATERMELON ICE LOLLIES

1FB878F4-C864-49CA-813F-508BF80C6876

I’m a sucker for a lolly. No pun intended 🙈

so when we came to do our big shop last week i saw these were on offer £1 for 4 so you can probably guess they didn’t last long.

if you like watermelon and like an ice lolly like me go pick up some of these.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

2F3FE08C-0200-4E45-A68E-B8EA284A3E52

I guess we are all one of a kind…it’s a funny but true quote.

Lastly I thought I’d include a song that I’ve loved singing along to

I mean anything that Ed sings is amazing in my eyes…. Blow is by Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars.

Thanks for stopping by

July Favourites

I must say we had a treat this July with some glorious sunshine so that was a fave. Though it’s lovely now having a bit of breeze.

I have a nice handful of my favourite things I’ve been loving this month to show you, so let’s get into it.

BEAUTY BITS

Oh my goodness I have literally fell in love with this 24 hr moisturiser from Palmers. You can imagine the cocoa makes me smell of chocolate, which is a good thing as I’m a bit of a chocoholic. A little bit goes a long long way. Highly recommend it.

If you suffer with anxiety like me a little lavender essential oil will be your new best friend. I have used a little spray bottle added a few drops of lavender and then filled it up with water. Now I have my homemade anxiety reliever to spray on me, my pillows or in the air around me.

YUMMY BITS

This was part of my childhood and then I saw they still sold them I was so happy. They’ve been my go to snack when I’ve needed that sugar fix.

Oh wow, these tick so many boxes. As a lover of houmous. These chickpea crisps that are sea salt flavour, gluten free, vegan and 40% less fat. To top it off they are 50p at the mo for a big bag 😋

Through being lacking energy lately and then being put on tablets because I’m low on iron I thought I need something that has all the goodness but is still yum and these tea bags from Tetley are just that.

BITS AND BOBS

I have bought / had as a present a few notepads this month and as a stationery addict one can never have too many.

I have wanted to get stuck into a series and then I saw Derry Girls was on my recommendations on Netflix so I’ve watched the first season. The second season is on 4 on demand so I can’t wait to finish watching them all. The girls are balshy, Irish school girls standing up for what they believe. I love the Irish accent and it’s something to get stuck into. I’ll let you know what I think of the second once I’ve binge watched it.

I have really loved Vogues makeup /self care routines with well known celebs and I have always adored Liv Tyler from a young age so watched her self care routine this week. Worth a watch just to get the tips.

Hope you’ve had a fab July

  • 5 favourite movies of all time : Bridget Jones Diary – the first one, Now and then, 10 things I hate about you, The kissing booth and of course Dirty Dancing…. There’s so many than 5 I’ll do a blog post on it at a later date.
  • 5 favourite pictures on my phone that are not people :
