September & October Favourites

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how amazing the concept of this candle is. Mince pies.. in a candle.. can you get anything more Christmassy!? Yes I know we are only coming to the end of October, but I just love the scents that are brought out around this time of year. I bought this candle from TK-Maxx for £1.99 in a small size, hopefully the bigger candle is still available as I'm going to have to go back & find it!

Flamingo Mug
Myself & James went to The Cotswold Wildlife Park at the beginning of October & we had the loveliest day. You can read all about it in an upcoming blog post if you like. I picked up this beautiful mug in the gift shop at the end. It's one of the biggest mugs I own (lots of tea yay!) & has one of my favourite animals on, flamingos! So adorable. I've been using it every morning for that first cup of tea with my breakfast.
This was my go-to lipstick in September after rediscovering it in my collection. It's a dark red shade that adds the perfect amount of pigmentation if you don't want an over-the-top dark lip for wearing during the day. It's such a perfect shade for the Autumn / Winter months.

My mum actually bought me this Vaseline after seeing it in Tesco & being pink, knew I would love it! It's slightly different to the regular Vaseline's, I find the formula to be a lot creamier & thicker on the lips. I've found using this before I go to bed & first thing in the morning has made my lips feel so soft. I have very chapped lips all year round, but they get especially bad in Winter, so this has been a life saver!
I absolutely raved about this bubble bar in my recent Lush Haul, so much so, that I bought the shower cream as well! It's one of my favourites & just smells so good! I've been trying to save it by using the smallest amount each time I have a bath but I know I'm going to have to re-stock soon! 
& finally other memories these past two months -
I felt Elisa's baby kick for the first time! Emotional moment as you can imagine & I was in tears as expected! Didn't help that we were at work & customers were coming up to the box office..
Met up with my girls; Lorna & I went to London for an adventure, had a catch up over breakfast with Ricka, had tea & cake with Shez in Costa & went to Ardingly Show with Boop, Gem & Cathy.
Moved James into his new flat in Gloucester & went to visit him. We also attended Rosie & Gareth's wedding last weekend which was lovely. I can't wait for Elisa's next year now!
