October Favourites

Hello Everyone!
  So for this weeks post I thought I would share with you my favourites from October.

  I will start off by explaining how October was for me which it was a lovely month if I am honest, work was hectic as always but I just seemed to worry less and genuinely enjoyed the month. I spent my evenings reading, watching TV and just recharging my batteries. I got most of my Christmas shopping done in October and just overall felt like this month was my month to get back on track, I got back into my blog and have started planning my YouTube channel and content but not sure when I'll actually get back into YouTube. So now lets get into what I loved in October;

Younique Foundation in Scarlet - So I'm seeming to have a love/hate relationship with foundation at the moment as I just don't seem to like the finish of any foundation at the moment but I've been sticking to this as I know the shade is perfect for me, it gives me full coverage and lasts all day.
W7 Blusher in Cookie Crumble - I picked this blusher up a while ago and it's actually one of my favourites still as I just love the shade of it. The shade is a very pale brown shade with shimmer and it just adds a natural glow to my cheeks I love it.
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer - I've had this in my collection for so long and always go back to it when I need to use a bronzer I know will work as I said I'm not having the greatest time with makeup at the moment but I just love the bit of colour it adds to my face and I love it looks like a chocolate bar.
The Balm Mary - Lou Manizer Highlighter - Again this is an old product but I still love it, I just love the effect it gives to my face and I know it will last all day when I've applied it.
Younique Lipstick in Loaded - This month I've been reaching for more deep red shades as it's coming into Autumn and this is the shade I've been going for, it's such a lovely deep brown with a hint of red and just looks stunning on the lips. I love these lipsticks as they apply so easily and have such a lovely formula.
Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipgloss in 05 Simply Be An Icon - I love these lip glosses as I'm all for matte finishes at the moment and this is just amazing, as I said I'm going for red shades this month and this was perfect. I just apply over the top of the lipstick and it's the perfect combo.
Treacle Moon Wild Cherry Magic Hand Cream - I have been using hand cream non stop this month as towards the colder months my hands get so dry, I love the treacle moon hand creams and this scent was a new one I had never seen before but I love it and the scent lingers on the skin.

Polaroid by Jonas Blue, Liam Payne and Lennon Stellar - I heard this on Spotify and instantly just loved it and it's been on repeat since.
Without Me by Hasley - I found this on the new music Friday playlist and it's just one of those songs which took my by surprise and again it's been on repeat.
Empty Space by James Arthur - This song came out towards the end of October and we all know by now I love James Arthur as an artist so I knew I would love this song before it came out so it's no surprise it's in my favourites.
Cheatin' by Nathan Dawe - I found this song on the new music Friday playlist and I always seem to listen to songs like this when I need a little boost and it always does the trick.
Back & Forth by MK, Jonas Blue and Becky Hill - I heard this on the radio and never knew who it was by but knew I liked it, I found it on a playlist on Spotify and was so happy to have found it.
Reading - In October reading was something I spent most of my time doing and I really enjoyed it, I finished around 3 books in October which isn't a lot to some people but to me that's a massive thing but I feel as though I've finally got back into it and love it so much.
YouTube - I fell out of love with YouTube for a while but this month I've really enjoyed just spending my e-mails watching videos and feel as though I'm slowly finding my love for it again.
2019 Diary - I picked up a new diary from TK Maxx as I am wanting to get myself back into a productive routine and a diary always helps and this one was just so pretty (I will do a blog post on it) so I've planned my next few weeks and I'm ready to go.

November Goals

Hello Everyone!
  So for this weeks post I'm going to be sharing what my November goals are.
 I will start by giving a wrap upon how October went for me in terms of goals and I honestly had such a good month for my goals and when I sat down to see how October had been for me I was surprised I had actually achieved them all. October was a quiet month for me in terms of what I was doing as I was just generally spending my time doing things for me to just recharge my batteries after a few busy months. So my first goal was to buy more Christmas presents which of course I achieved as I bought quite a lot of my presents in October which is always good. My next goal was to get back into my blog and of course I achieved that too as I'm still here posting blog posts and I've definitely found my passion for my blog again. My next goal was to spend evenings doing things for 'Me' and again I achieved this as I spent my evenings reading, watching TV and playing Sims. My next goal was to spend only if needed and to save more which this was my first month I only spent if needed and it was mainly on Christmas presents and I put into my savings this month too. My last goal was to worry less and again I achieved this I seemed to find a mind set of not worrying as much and thinking I can only do what I can do or I cant help fix something that is out of my control. Now onto my November goals;

Get Back Into A Routine - I have kind of fell out of a routine recently and although its nice to have a break I do like to have some kind of structure so I just want to make myself a routine for every day, like having my breakfast at a certain time etc so it's going to be a routine to find around my every day life, my work schedule and blog stuff.
Read More - I feel as though this year I have finally got back into reading and I'm so glad. Reading is one of my favourite things to do and I just want to get back into reading at least every day even if it's just a chapter as I have so many books on my TBR I need to get through them all.
Skincare Routine - This kind of fits with my first goal but I want to get back into doing my skincare every day as I definitely see a difference in my skin when I do stick to it so I need to get back into it.
Drink More Water - I need to drink more water or at least make the effort as I hardly drink enough which is why I get so many head aches etc so I want to try and drink more in November.
Finish Christmas Shopping - In November I want to get the rest of my Christmas presents so I then just need to buy the small things like wrapping paper, tags and gift bags. I like to get my shopping done early so I don't stress and I'm so glad I've nearly got it all done.
What's your November Goals?

Favourite Eye Palette Of The Moment-

Hello Everyone!
  So for this weeks post I thought I would share my current favourite eye palette.
  I have had this eye palette in my collection for so long now and I always seem to go back to it and remember how much of a lovely palette it actually is. So the palette is the Zoeva Rose Gold palette which I received for my birthday a while ago and to be honest I love it a lot more than I expected. So in this palette you have 10 shades which are a mixture of mattes and shimmers which is what I go for when it comes to eye looks. I adore the packaging of Zoeva palettes as I just think they are so stunning and I feel like I need to pick more of the Zoeva palettes up but I just haven't got round to picking any more of them up at the moment (Christmas Present maybe?) I find the shades so easy to blend and so pigmented, I will admit I feel as though the shimmer shades are a bit harder to get the pigment onto my lid but I may have to try wetting my brush with fix plus and see if that adds to the pigment but apart from that as it's not a big issue to me as I just keep applying to the lid until I am happy I do really enjoy using this palette for an every day look for work. If you have any suggestions for any other Zoeva palettes do let me know in the comments as I may ask for one for Christmas as I do want some new makeup but prefer to spend my money on more important things at the moment... Christmas presents.
Have you used the Zoeva Rose Gold palette?
