October products of the month

Image

I decided to create a post similar to monthly empties, but in this case I haven’t used up every single product and that’s why I’m calling it products of the month! I had a lot more products I could of talked about but I didn’t want to blather on too much than I already will do!

The first product I’m going to write about is the glaze cinnamon scented candle with a Christmassy design on the holder. I bought it for £2 from Tesco on special offer, it smells amazing and is really appropriate for the Winter season! It’s a good size for the price and I’ve got a lot of turns out of it and there is plenty more to come.

The next item is the finishing touches fake glue on nails produced especially for Superdrug. The ones I purchased have half a white tip at the top with 3 glitter line coming from it. The glitter gives it a more glamorous finish than just the plain white French look. This product was just over £3, all the other fake nails were dearer. I got mine in short length as I have teeny fingers and hands. I am really impressed with these as I usually am left with 1 fake nail after a couple of days but these have lasted me 6 days and I have only had to reapply 2 nails. I have been swimming, in a jacuzzi and sauna, washed dishes etc and they have still managed to last this long, for £3! I’ll be repurchasing these again. (Glue is included.)

The third item i’ll mention is the ‘Lovely’ perfume by Sarah Jessica Parker. I love this perfume as it’s a light sweet scent that you could go to use every day, the bottle design is so chic and classy, it reminds me of pink roses! I think over all it represents Sarah Jessica Parker perfectly. I would definately buy this for a friend as a gift for Christmas as it isn’t very expensive but it’s beautiful for the price.

My boyfriend bought the “Lynx Arrract for her” for himself, even though it’s meant to be for girls, so I ended up using it a couple of times and I have to say it is a lovely smell. It’s fruity and sweet but I find these type of body spray/deodorants don’t keep their smell for long at all. I wouldn’t buy this again.

The next item I’ve been using this month is the Avon Nail experts liquid freeze product which is a quick dry nail spray. It cost around £3 and the bottle is 50ml. I have to admit it does work, every time I paint my nails, I smudge them without a doubt. I am just far too impatient to sit waving my hands around to dry, so this product I just had to try. Luckily for me, it worked, within a couple of minutes I dared to touch my nails and they were dry, hooray! it does have a chemical smell to it and it is quite greesy, but as long as you wash your hands after you’ll be fine.

The last product I’m going to mention is the hair, skin and nail vitamins I have been taking to try and get my hair to grow, you can read about my hair growth battle here. They were £3 from Tesco and I wasn’t willing to pay double the price for a different brand that was a bit more “posh,” when the ingredients were exactly the same! First of all, these tablets are big brutes, I HATE taking tablets so it’s not nice trying to swallow them down, it doesn’t help the fact that they taste disgusting. The taste lingers in your mouth for a couple of minutes and makes me want to vomit! (Sorry about the graphic thought.) If you take a drink straight after taking them you should be fine. I don’t know if they are doing much for me as of yet as I have only been taking them for a couple of weeks, but for the price you can’t really ask for more, I’d buy them again if I notice a difference with my skin, hair and nails! x

October wantlist <3

Image

I’ve been dying to do this post and saying as it is the start of October i’ll start now, no time better than the present eh? There are so many things I’ve seen the past few weeks and have said “I want that.” I think it might have something to do with the fact my student loan came in… I think when you have money you think you want everything, just because you can. I’ve been quite good I have to say, and haven’t bought anything ridiculously expensive, more like spending it on silly things. I’ll learn one day maybe?!

Accessories

ImageI spotted this necklace on Youtube sensation Mel Rose, other wise known as “Makeup by Mel.” If you haven’t checked out her channel, make sure you do! You won’t regret it. She always seems to wear the most amazing necklaces, like, ones I want so badly, but can’t find in the stores. It turns out this necklace is from “Baublebar,” I had a look on their website and their items are to die for, they aren’t ridiculously expensive either. I actually couldn’t find this particular necklace unfortunately, if anyone else can find it please let me know :).

ASOS £15.00

These plate belts have been very popular recently, I’ve seen them on lots of celebrities and style mags, I think it would be gorgeous with some high waisted jeans or a skirt. I think it makes an outfit look that little bit more impressive.

Beauty Products

ImageI heard a number of reviews on this product saying it is worth the buy, and I have to admit I hate putting moisturiser on, so this seems like a great way to make the process a lot quicker and easier! Apparently the smell of the aloe-fresh one is amazing. I had a look for it in my local Superdrug and Boots store but couldn’t find it, so I might have to order it off the Boots website! Anyone tried this before?

Boots Online £4.99

ImageI think it’s about time I purchased a nail strengthener, my nails are always chipping, breaking and flaking. I tried gel nails before and they work great but I don’t want to be spending that much money every couple of weeks. If anyone knows a better nail strengthener than this one please let me know! Or if anyone has tried this one let me know what you think of it!

Boots £4.89

Image  I really want my hair to grow, full stop. It honestly grows so slowly, I wonder if it is growing at all! I do bleach my hair and use heat on it quite a lot, but I am just getting to the stage where I’m sick of having to clip extensions in all the time. There are some great reviews about these products and to be honest, I’ll give anything a go. Does anyone else have any recommendations on hair growth products?

Ebay £24.99

This top is very me, flower print, peplum, girly, floaty, and can be teamed with leggings, tights or jeans, dressed up or down! I really love the colours in it too. It is quite expensive, so it might not get passed the want list.

Miss Selfridge £29.00

I love Missguided for going out dresses. They have so many different styles that I find hard to buy in shops. You can’t see it in the picture but this dress has spaghetti straps which is very in fashion now, I think they look gorgeous, and this one is midi length which is fab. I want it so badly! It comes in a range of other colours including, green, blue and red. My only question would be, what bra would be suitable for it?

I spotted these brown, buckled boots in Barratts in my local shopping centre sitting in the front window, and I literally fell in love. They are so gorgeous for autumn! To my dismay there was no size 4, I could of cried 😦 I think a purchase online might be on the cards…

Barratts £40.00
