Beauty products i’ve been loving in the month of September…

Hair: I’ve been meddling with my hair this month (nothing particularly new there then) however, September has seen me playing with pastels, lilac hair to be precise and i’ve loved it! Like most things that look fashionable it was a nightmare to keep on top but to achieve it I used the Bleach London ‘Violet Skies’ conditioning colour. I have been adding blob of the formula into my regular conditioner from the John Frieda ‘Sheer Blonde’ range to keep a lilac-y tone running through my hair. Another stand out product that I have been using this month is the Redken ‘Color Extend’ Total Recharge spray to help restore condition and shine in over processed hair. I spritz the formula through damp hair before blow drying to help prevent any unnecessary breakage when my hair is wet.

Scent: You know those days when you just want to smell sexy? Well, obviously that’s everyday but on some occasions you want an extra lift. I have been spritzing the Michael Kors ’24 Carat Brilliant Gold’ perfume everyday this month and i’m always so infatuated by the mandarin and floral base. It’s a perfect fragrance to take you from the office to cocktails with a divine scent.

Nails: Spray on nail polish I hear you say? What is this sorcery? As you know Nails Inc are my favourite brand of nail polish, their products make up 95% of my collection and whilst I have stubby, horrible nails I like to invest in pretty colours regardless. I’ve been dabbling with their new paint can thaang this month, particularly the shade ‘Good as gold’ which is part of the Lottie Tomlinson range (I think she’s the sister of that 1D dude?) I love the idea, the paint cans cover well and the colour is gorgeous though I don’t think it’s all that practical as you have to apply a base-coat and wait for that to dry but I reckon for those days you just want something on your nails (maybe at a festival) it’s a great idea to spray and go. 

Eyes: When it comes to mascara, in my opinion budget wins out every time and the Collection ‘Lengthening Mascara’ is one I come back to time, and time again, the wand is one of those satisfying rubber bristled numbers that digs deep into the lash whilst remaining un-clumpy and doing all the right things. It’s also only around £4 so that’s pretty alright too.

Lifestyle: I’m around 5 months too late but I am so head over heels for the Mr Burberry’  campaign /’mini feature film’ it’s just so darn sexy and who wouldn’t want that? I’ve also been loving Illustrated Ella + Alice Catherine’s blog photography and content this month. Both girls are proof to be cool AF you don’t need to try hard. I saw Bridget Jones’ Baby with my galpal Hannah and I loved it, it’s the ending to the story we all wanted to see and if Jonesy can have a baby and get married at 45 there’s hope for us all yet. 

Playlist for September on Spotify: It’s another hefty one! I think there’s around 5 hours worth of sweet, sweet music in there. My September playlist contains some of my favourite songs from the month: ‘Mirror Man’ from Ella Henderson,  ‘Blow Ya Mind’ from Dua Lipa and of course my favourite song this month ‘When we were young’ by the legend Adele.
