October Favourites



How on earth is it November first today? Wasn't it just turning October yesterday? This year is going way too quickly! It's going to be Christmas next month - that is a very scary thought. Actually what is scarier then that thought is that at the end of next month, it's going to be a whole new year! 2017 is going to be here before we know it! Since it is the first of November, this is of course the time for my October favourites. This is what I have been loving this month...


Zoella Bath Latte Bath & Shower Milk

[Priced at: £6.00] If you have followed me for a little while you may remember that last year in my Big Autumn Haul blog post I picked up Zoella's Scrubbing Me Softly body scrub and then when I used it I was so disappointed in the product that it's taken me so long to buy another Zoella product to use and see what I think. I have heard so many awesome reviews about Zoella's Bath Latte Bath & Shower Milk  that I wanted to give it a try myself and see what I thought. Firstly, I love the packaging. It's so cute and girly! I also love the scent, it smells like sweet almond, cacao and honey. I must admit I am very impressed with this product as it made my skin feel so soft and beautiful. I will be picking more of this wonderful stuff up!

The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream *

[Priced at: £12.00] I'm not going to say a lot about this product as I have it mentioned in a few blog posts which are going to be coming up on my blog in the next few months, but I want to say that I have been loving this so much. I haven't been using liquid foundation that much over the last few months due to trying to get my skin back to a good condition, if you don't know already I suffer pretty bad with acne-prone very dry skin. It's really surprised me as I didn't think it would be as good as it is! It adapts to my skin so well, illuminates my skin and evens appearance of my skin tones - and keeps it hydrated for hours and hours. It's also packed with community trade organic aloe vera, what more could you ask for in a BB Cream?

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cube *

[Priced at: £9.00] Just like the above product I don't want to say too much about this either, for the same reason really, I have it mentioned in a few blog posts which are coming up in the next few months but wow is this little beauty awesome! I really, really recommend this to everyone as it's such an awesome product which can put on of a morning to wake yourself up and it lasts all day, plus you can also to pop in your bag to be carried around with you. I love this!

Yankee Candles Apple Crumble Wax Melt *

[Priced at: £1.49] I received this Yankee Candle wax melt at the end of last Autumn and didn't end up using it as I got the Yankee Candles advent calendar in December so I saved it until this year. I used it and loved it so much and then went on their website to buy one but sadly they don't make them anymore. They have replaced their Apple Crumble wax melt with a Rhubarb Crumble wax melt this year, which I'm sure smells wonderful but it just isn't the Apple Crumble one. It lasted so long too which I lit it and it made my whole home smell beautiful. Thanks Yankee Candles!

Barry M Silk Poppy Nail Polish *

[Priced at: £3.99] If you've followed me for a while on my blog or on social media you'll have seen me mention this beauty loads. I love this nail polish, it really is one of my favourites and I adore it so much for this time of year. It's my trusted little Poppy which I always go back to as no nail polish has topped this for me.

Halloween!!

How can I do an October Favourites and not mention Halloween? I love Love LOVE Halloween. This year was our first Halloween in our new home too which made it so extra special. The #GGMovieNight really topped Halloween off for me too and it was so fun. I'm already wishing it was Halloween again!


Lastly, I want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to send me well wishes in October whilst I was in and out of hospital. It really means a lot that you took time out of your busy lives to see how I was doing and I love you all dearly for it.

I hope you all enjoyed my monthly favourites this month, if you have tried or own any of these products let me know what is your opinion on them? Also, if you would like a full review on a certain product let me know and I shall get that up too? I hope you all have a wonderful day!


With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  10. Yankee Candles are so expensive but I've wanted to try them out for the longest time because I hear all about how they can fill up an entire room, if not the whole flat, with their amazing scents. I think a wax melt might be a good start, though!

  12. That Body Shop eye cube sounds like a dream! I'm also slowly getting more and more tempted by the new Zoella products. I'd ignored the hype initially but I think I'm going to have to give in hahaha. Great favourites!!!
