September Favourites


I feel like this post is vaguely reminiscent of my September favourites last year as I also featured a Barry M nail varnish, a clothing item and the exact same book. In fact, I just reread that post and realised I was planning on penning the exact same sentences about Clockwork Princess this time around as well. I know I say I'm a creature of habit but it's so funny how I tend to fall back towards the same kinds of things during Autumn each year. BUT enough reminiscing - onto my September favourites for 2016!
 
My Primark bee print shirt has been getting a lotta love on social media after I featured it in this post and this Instagram photo and I've been wearing it to death recently so it's no surprise it's in my favourites. I personally wear it buttoned right up to the top with a pair of black jeans/leggings and I think I look super swish (whether I actually do is another matter). Another item that I picked up at the same time as the bee shirt is the cacti-and-stripe tote bag. I always forget my tote bags when I go shopping because they're so big and don't fit in my regular bag but this one is the perfect size to be folded and tucked away.
I have three cruelty-free favourites this month: a mascara, a nail varnish and a lipstick. The mascara is one I was a little unsure of when I first tried it but as it's dried out a little I've fallen in love with it. It's the Essense Lash Princess Volume Mascara which I much prefer to the Lash Princess False Lash Effect, which I found smudged really badly under my eyes. The Volume mascara leaves my lashes thick and volumised which is just the way I like them, and costs less than £4! The Barry M Speedy nail varnish in Eat My Dust (v) is one I've had on my wish-list forever until my mum ever-so-kindly bought it for me a few weeks ago and I've literally worn nothing else on my nails since! It's a gorgeous powdery blue-grey shade that I think flatters my pale skin tone really nicely. Of course the GOSH Velvet Touch matte lipstick in Raisin (v) was going to make it into this post, wasn't it? I swear I mention it all the bloody time. It's a gorgeous vampy brown shade that has quickly become my Autumnal go-to shade.
 
Finally, my little fictional favourites. I reread The Infernal Devices trilogy recently and - like I mentioned last year - I just fall a little more in love with Will Herondale every time I read it. Tessa is by far one of my favourite literary heroines and I adore that it's set in the Victorian era as it's one of my favourite periods in history to learn/read about. I also rewatched Legend of Korra recently (for the billionth time this year) and I always enjoy Book Four: Balance the most out of them all. I find Korra's recovery story both compelling and inspiring and I always look to it whenever I'm having a particularly shaky moment with my own recovery.
 
Other favourites include Somewhere In Neverland - All Time Low, Ride - Twenty One Pilots, ITV's Victoria, GBBO and Strictly Come Dancing.
