No I'm not dead! I have just had a very stressful month so I am looking forward to the best time of the year... so here is my round-up for this month!
|TXMaxx - £2.99|
Winter means all things Gingerbread as far as I am concerned. That apparently now includes Gingerbread handwash. This may be a really granny thing to do but I definitely judge people on the products they keep on offer in their bathrooms and as we have a revolving door in December I saw this and got a little bit over excited.
|'Jumping Juniper Sampoo Bar' - £5.75 '|
Breath of Fresh Air' Toner -£4.25
'Grease Lightning' -£6.40
My skin has been hating me since the weather has become cooler so I ran into Lush screaming and this is what I came out with. I picked up the 'Breath of Fresh Air' Toner which I find so much more convenient as you just spray and then you can get on with your day instead of trying to find cotton pads then wiping greasy residue off your face after. Grouped with the 'Grease Lightning' treatment it has really helped to clean up my skin.
The last one is the weirdest products ever. But I do not think I will actually go back to the real thing. This weird purple disk is actually a shampoo bar, my friend Laura recommended it to me, so I bought it and tried it out and I can declare that I am in love! It lathers up so well and gives my hair body and shine AND you get so many washes out of it. I have used this 6 times and it hasn't decreased in size at all.
|'Lilac Skies' -£5.00|
Colour Drama in 'Nude Perfection' - £4.99
During the winter it seems wrong to have bright blonde hair so I have been combating this by using Bleach London 'Violet Skies' hair wash. On light hair this would make hair lilac but on my hair it does the same job as a toner and makes a ashy/blonde/brown tone.
The Maybelline Colour Drama lip pencil in 'Nude Perfection'. Think 90's better than natural nude/Kylie Jenner lip obsessive nude.
'Life After Life' by Kate Atkinson is my favourite book of the month. It is all about the idea of reincarnation. Taking place during the first through to the second world war, Starting with the first chapter which a baby dies in birth but in the next it lives. This continues with the main character drowning, being crushed by buildings, falling off roofs, dying of illness etc. These are all then followed by flip chapters where a small incident will change the ending of that situation. This book is really very clever and really makes you think about the 'what ifs'. It is also a great book for winter and the majority has a really cold and chilling feel.
Let me know of any of your favourites this month!
And please brace for all things Christmas coming your way.
