Friday Favourites October #1

See comments


This week I've been all about Autumn, meaning my favourites are very season appropriate. From my go-to berry lipsticks and favourite indulgent exfoliating soap, to non-beauty picks in the form of comfort food and current reads. 

If you are feeling autumnal then this is a favourites post for you!


L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Hair Oil 
£9.99 - Boots here 
With over straightening my hair it's recently required some TLC in the form of a hair oil. I've previously loved the original Moroccan Oil but found I equally love L'Oreal's Extraordinary Hair Oil which is thankfully much cheaper for a larger volume. The oil not only acts as a heat protectant but nourishes damp hair and tames frizz before blow-drying. Plus it can also be used on dry hair to smooth split ends and add shine. This is so far the best hair oil I've ever tried and really is restoring my hair's health.

Lush Porridge Soap 
£3.10/100g - Lush here or in-store 
Last week I came across a stash of Lush soaps I forgot I had and instantly cut up a slab of my favourite Porridge soap to place in the shower. This is a perfect soap for autumn/winter as it smells delicious - a blend of oats with a slight zingy orange edge plus the actual oats give an exfoliating element which is great for dry skin. On the whole I find Lush soaps a little drying so only use them as hand soap but this is definitely one that can be used in the shower to exfoliate with. You can find my full review of this amazing soap here.

Rimmel Kate Lipstick in 107 
£5.49 - Amazon here or Boots
NYC Round Lipstick in Hero 545 
£3.91 - eBay here 
Once Autumn comes around I love to switch up my core makeup and embrace stronger looks, especially bold berry lips. My two absolutely favourites for this that I've been wearing this week are the very popular 107 Rimmel Kate Lipstick and an amazing deep wine shade from NYX called Hero. Both shades I love to dab on and blot to wear as more of a stain as I find this makes me less self conscious about wearing such a strong lip and it makes it last for most of the day. Highly recommend both of these shades.


Bloglovin' App
For the past month one of my favourite daily things to do is to check Bloglovin' for the latest blog posts from the blogs I follow. I follow over 300 blogs meaning I've always got something to read. Bloglovin' I also feel is the best platform to find new blogs on and to read posts you wouldn't normally come across. You can find the blog posts I've liked on Bloglovin' here.

If I Stay (paperback) 
£5.59 - Amazon here
East of India Quote Bookmark
 £2.39 - eBay here 
 Come colder weather one of my favourite pasts times is to read. It just takes me out of reality and into a totally different world in which I can lose myself for as long as I wish, all whilst snuggled under a blanket. Since reading The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters and loving it, I was at a bit of a loss as to what to read next but decided I wanted it to be something I could watch the film adaptation of after. It was a toss up between Gone Girl and If I Stay in the end but I decided to opt for If I Stay as it's very much hyped at the moment - so far so good... but I can tell it's going to be a teary read! I also thought I'd mention my new bookmark which I featured in a recent eBay wish list post as I just love it - much prettier than using scrap pieces of paper! 

Mash Direct Chilli Baby Bakes 
£1.89 - Waitrose/Booths/Spar 
Finally a bit of comfort food! Mash Direct are a range I love to pick up for ease normally their buttery Potato Mash or Carrot & Parsnip Mash but last week I spotted this dish of Chilli Baby Bakes. I will admit I intended to only eat half but devoured it all for my lunch... so much for being on a diet! The baby potatoes have a sort of crunchy crumb on them in a hot chilli marinite which is just amazing. With such little ingredients I'm now very tempted to try to make these from scratch with fresh chillis. One to try if you love anything with heat to it! Very yummy. 

Hope you all have a lovely first weekend of October. 

Fee xo.
