September Favourites

Favourites posts are my absolute favourite to read, and I have been so excited to post this one. It has been so fun to keep track of my top products and other bits over the past month, So, without further ado, here's what I have been loving recently!

MAC Lipstick in 'Mehr'


I popped into MAC recently to pick up another lipstick in the colour 'Brave'. I had seen this colour used in a few tutorials and it looks absolutely beautiful. However when I put it on myself it just wasn't quite right. One of the really helpful girls in the Reading store suggested that I gave 'Mehr' a go instead - and so my addiction began. I don't think this has come off of my lips since, it's just the perfect pinky nude.

Collection Speedy Highlighter in 'Pearl Sheen'


I was so surprised by this product. I have always used the Topshop Glow pots as a highlighter, but I have recently been after something a bit less obvious. Along came this. I wouldn't have even looked twice at this product if it wasn't for my friend swatching it in the store. From the front, this highlighter is barely there, but as soon as the light hits it gives a beautiful healthy glow. And for £3.99 you really can't go wrong - I've had a few comments from people thinking that it was high end!

Chelsea Boots


As soon as September hits I swap out my summer wardrobe and welcome back my winter one. The one item I was missing though was a good pair of chelsea boots - so naturally I went out and bought two pairs... oops! In my defence, they have now become an absolute staple for me, I can wear them with practically any outfit and they are so comfortable and cosy. Mine are both from Marks & Spencer. Honestly I don't know how I went so long without a pair (or two!).

Portable Charger


Oh. My. Goodness. This has been my guardian angel over the past month. I have an iPhone 5 and the battery lasts all of 5 seconds before it needs plugging in again. After having a shop around, I found this one on Amazon for £22, which will charge my phone 7 times over!! I only have to leave it on charge overnight and it will last me all week! No more panicking at 2 in the afternoon and rationing my phone, now I can waste my time on it to my heart's content.
