Instead of looking back at September and telling you about my favourites, I thought I’d try looking ahead at October and telling you what I’m looking forward to this month.
I have some gorgeously smelling new Imperial Leather bath cremes, which I’m excited to use, and at £1 each in Boots, they’re a lot easier on the purse than a Lush bath bomb. I chose the Cherry Bakewell and Orchid and Ylang Ylang scents because who doesn’t want a bath that smells of cake and flowers?
My new lipsticks
Fun fact: I have barely worn any makeup in six months. However, I’ve been looking at my collection and thinking I need to chuck a load of old stuff out and have a little replenish of stock. I’m not someone who has 20 blushers, one or two is fine! Except when it comes to nail polish when I need 100 bottles. I began my little replenishment with two new lipsticks from Barry M, Berrylicious and Wine Not. They’re perfect for autumn and cost £4.99 each.
A haircut and new colour
Actually, this has already happened. Last week I had a cut and colour because I needed my greys to be vamooshed and also I wanted to be a full brunette, letting go of the red which I’ve had on and off for so long. I’m delighted with the results.
I’ve had this treatment a couple of times before and thought it was about time to book another appointment. It’s a therapy for the feet which releases tension and I find it very relaxing.
Halloween and general spookiness
I’ve never done anything to celebrate Halloween but this year, I feel excited about it and also it’s been creeping into my snail mail for the first time ever too, which is fun. I love seeing all of the Halloween items in the shops and I will be enjoying the evening with a ghost story and some funky false nails.
Candles, blankets and fuzzy socks
I’m excited about ALL of the cosiness which October brings, wouldn’t you agree? The blankets are out of the cupboard and on the sofa, the autumnal candles are on the hearth and the warmest, fuzziest socks I can find are on my feet!
Cosy Reading Night
Laren and the Books is one of my favourite Booktubers and she hosts reading nights throughout the year, which I’ve never joined in with – until now. The latest Cosy Reading Night takes place on October 20th, 7pm – 10pm. For more info and to join in, just watch this. I’m really looking forward to a night of autumnal, cosy reading!
