Things I’m Loving Lately {October}

Well I thought September whizzed by, but it seems October has done the same! I can’t believe we are now over a week into November (I am fully aware this is a few days later than it should be, apologies!!) It is mine and Bella’s birthday month so it will no doubt be just as crazy. Who wants a quiet life anywaaaay 😉 Here’s a few of the things we have been loving in my first ever ‘Things I’m Loving Lately’ linking up with Emma over at www.lifeatthelittlewood.co.uk

Beauty
I received this Talika moisturiser in my October Glossybox and have been using it every day as my base under my make up. I have really noticed that my foundation applies much better on top of this and lasts all day. It suits my oily skin perfectly as its more of a gel consistency, so it doesn’t make my skin feel greasy at all. I’m so impressed with it I may even repurchase when it runs out.

Over the past month or so I have been wearing more gold/bronzey eye make up and have rekindled my love for Mac’s ‘Woodwinked’ eye shadow. I have had this eyeshadow for a while and I always seem to dig it out around this time of year. It’s such a pretty colour and is so pigmented therefore a little goes a long way.  I have been either wearing this on its own if I’m pushed for time, by applying it all over the lid with a fluffy real techniques eyeshadow brush or using it with a paler nude on the inner lid and darker brown through the crease.


Fashion
If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I have been loving wearing my faux fur gilet! It’s definitely become my favourite Autumn staple in my wardrobe. It’s such a versatile piece and keeps me nice and cosy when I don’t want to wear a proper coat. It took me ages to find the ‘perfect’ one. I even bought a different one then returned it as it wasn’t very soft and just wasn’t what I was looking for. Bella also has a very similar one too and sometime we may accidentally on purpose wear them out at the same time 😉


I have also been absolutely loving these tan Chelsea boots I picked up for Bella a few weeks ago. I know lots of other little girls that have them and they are just so cute, I’d actually love a pair in my size 😉 Bella literally wears them every day as they go with everything!


Home
We have been having a couple of little home makeovers over the last couple of weeks which I’ll be sharing more on soon… once I get round to taking some decent photos 😉 But I did share a picture on my Instagram of our new feature wallpaper in the hallway. Isn’t it gorgeous!?


Food
I recently discovered Quark and I’m now obsessed. I’m following Slimming World and I’d seen lots of other people using this fat free soft cheese as a dessert alternative mixed with an options hot chocolate sachet. I was dubious at first but it’s actually really tasty! I have mine with lots of fresh strawberries and it really curbs my chocolate cravings of an evening. I’m yet to try it in savoury dishes but I hear it makes a lovely creamy sauce for pasta!


I’d love to know what you have been loving throughout October!

Thanks for reading
