October Favourites

It’s that time again folks, my favourite items from October!

I don’t have that many to be honest, this month seems to have just vanished before my eyes as I’ve been working so much it has been crazy! Anyhow, I did manage to put a few things together which I really have being enjoying, with one in particular being my favourite….bet you can guess!

Ok, so my favourite thing has to be my new phone! I finally upgraded from my
Blackberry which had past it’s sell by date as far as I was concerned, it was
broken and the reception was so poor. I’m so glad to be rid of it! I love my new phone guys!

I have decided to feature two lip balms, even though one is technically
classed as lip butter.  I have being using both throughout this month and
I’ve loved them equally but for different reasons. The Burt’s Bees lip balm was something I had
been lusting after for ages as I really wanted to try Burt’s Bees as they are a
popular cruelty free brand, however, I do find their products a little on the
pricey side so I picked up probably the cheapest thing that they do. I picked
up the original lip balm which has a minty taste to it which I feel isn’t too
overpowering. I find it moisturises my lips quite well when they are behaving,
however they have gone very sore recently so I’m looking for something more to
help sort this out. These cost £3.69 which at first I thought is quite pricey
for a lip balm, however after using it I would re-purchase again.

The second lip balm is by Nivea, which
is quite a new product as far as I’m aware. I first saw this over at Hello Terri Lowe, where I was immediately intrigued as I have some kind of lip balm
addiction. This lip balm costs £2.25 which is pretty good because oh my god it
smells amazing…I would buy it for the smell alone. The actual product is a
lovely consistency, I can see why they describe it as “butter”, it isn’t very
thick however therefore I don’t find it as moisturising as I do the Burt’s Bees
lip balm.

Lastly is my new mascara by Soap and Glory, it is the new ‘Thick and Fast’
mascara in black. I was after a new one as my L’Oreal Million Lashes has
started to go a tad clumpy now so I wanted a new cruelty free option to replace
it. I’ve really enjoyed using it so far, I have quite long lashes already so I
don’t need much from mascara really other than to just make them stand out a
little more; I find this does the trick beautifully!

What have you being enjoying this October?

Also, seeing as I have a new phone now I have got myself set up on
Instagram….finally!! My username is ‘alittleboatsailing’; I’d love to find
some of you guys on there!
