Well I think I must have blinked and just missed the whole of September!! It seriously went so quickly, probably because we were on holiday for a week of it I suppose. Anyway, here are a few things we have been loving throughout September.
My Kindle. I love reading but since having Bella I rarely find the time. So while Bella was in crèche for a couple of hours a day while we were on holiday, I spent most of the time reading on my kindle with a cocktail in hand. Heaven.
I picked up this Palmers Coconut Oil Body Lotion from Sainsbury’s when I was picking up the rest of our holiday toiletries and I’m really impressed. It soaks into the skin quickly and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I also love the smell, I’m obsessed with anything coconut scented so this is right up my street.
Now it is officially Autumn (yay!!!) I have been loving swapping my sandals back to my boots. I end up wearing them most days at this time of year. My current favourites are these ones from Forever21 which I have in both black and tan because I love them that much and they basically go with everything 😉 I especially love to team them with dresses and tights or ripped skinny jeans. As much as I love these boots I am also currently on the hunt for some new flat leather ankle boots in tan and some black Chelsea boots for more casual days.
In my last favourites post I mentioned how much I was loving my Rimmel Kate lipstick in shade 38, this month I also purchased shade 03 to add to my collection which is a deep berry red. It’s perfect for Autumn and I think I will be wearing it a lot over the next couple of months! These lipsticks are my absolute faves and are currently on buy one get the second half price in Boots so no doubt I’ll end up picking up a couple more before that offer ends 😉
I grabbed a box of these Ella’s Kitchen Fruit Pouches as they were on offer and I remember reading a post a while ago by the lovely Alice who blogs over at Alice & Amelia | New Young Mum and she said how her daughter Amelia really enjoys them as a snack and Bella has been loving them too, they are so handy and I think its great that you can pop the lid back on them and they keep in the fridge for up to 48 hours. I have also been adding a generous squirt into Bella’s morning porridge after they are cooked then I either pop the rest in the fridge for the next day or if she spots it she’ll have the rest while her porridge cools down.
When I had Bella my Mum dug out some of my old books that she had kept including lots of the Beatrix Potter collection. Bella is currently loving them. She seems to carry one at all times and is forever demanding I read her a ‘boooooooookkkkk’. I was quite shocked at actually how brutal some of the stories are so I may or may not skip some of the not so nice pages to save her little ears 😉
While we were in Ibiza our holiday must have for Bella would have to be the Speedo Swim Jacket. This gave us peace of mind that she was safer in the water with this on. Luckily she doesn’t mind wearing it, although she can unzip it and remove it herself but she didn’t ever do this in the water thankfully.
This month has been crazy busy and flown by too fast for my liking so I’m determined to make the most of October and for it to be a bit more relaxed. I can’t wait to get started on ticking things off our Autumn Bucket List which I’ll be sharing on the blog in my next post!!
Thanks so much for reading
