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 ๐Ÿ˜

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 theseย  two by Barry M look just like gel but are infact Molten Metal shades ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ

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?

Skincare faves

My skin is sensitive, dry and prone to spots so I need to pay attention to all the goings on of my face.

Olay has me covered with these 3 and it didn’t leave me out of pocket.

I’m pretty sure it was a 3 for 2 at boots so it was a win win all round.

At night I will use the beauty fluid to give my skin just enough moisture but not too much that it gets on my pillow.

Then in the morning I use my olay daily facials as they get off any dirt from overnight and I feel they help get rid of my dry areas in the process.

Then before I do my make up I use the day cream. It also acts as a primer too so it’s a perfect base for my foundation.

The worst thing I get if I don’t prep my skin before make up is dry skin underneath my foundation and nothing looks worse than that when every other part of your made up face looks lovely.

Thanks for stopping by

Sunday Pamper Session

Guess who was up before it was necessary on a Sunday morning?

That would be me

So I decided as soon as my body would function that I would give myself a little pampering.

7th Heaven cucumber peel off mask

I grabbed a mask I knew wasn’t going to be messy and drip everywhere so this one was the perfect option. I applied it while the bath was running and then removed it when I had got out of it. There’s just something so satisfying about peeling off a mask and trying to get it in one full swoop.

You really can’t beat a bubble bath, I used to love one when I was younger trouble was that I had to share it with my brother…then we would see who could get the most impressive bubble beard. Craig usually won hands down.

For a while, I have been using this for shower gel/ body foam and it makes bubbles like no ones business so if I don’t intend on soaking for ages then I use just this.

Imperial Leather Foamburst – Unicorn Marshmallow

There are a few different scents in the range and are usually on offer so I suggest trying a few.

Next, It was exfoliation time and I had to ask Mother dearest to be of assistance as my arms aren’t like Mr Tickles and can’t reach my back.

The Body Shop Vanilla Marshmallow Body Scrub

The Vanilla Marshmallow Body Scrub was part of a set exclusively at Christmas from The Body Shop. It smells bloody beautiful. Over on their website, I think they may have a few bits left in the sale.

After I got out the bath and peeled off the face mask, I still found in my t-zone that I was a bit dry so I grabbed yet another scrub. I have been trying it out for a few months, well since my birthday in October.

Mario Badescu Strawberry Face Scrub

This brand is usually found on Beauty Bay. If you are lucky and find out when they have a sale on you can get a few products from the range without hurting your purse.

Lastly, I grabbed my facial mist and gave my face a light spritz.

The Body Shop Facial Mist

I love using this cos it wakes you up and leaves your skin smelling lovely too.

This evening I am going to tackle the brows with my trusty tweezers and hopefully won’t take out too many and end up having to pencil them in every day.

Tweezerman Mini Tweezers

Your eyebrows shape your face so you really want to pay attention when you are either plucking/waxing them.

Anyway, there you go my Sunday morning totally unplanned but lovely all the same.

Hope you’ve all had a lovely Sunday.
