September Favourites!

To be honest it's been kind of exciting to have tried some new things out last month. As I do love change and trying out different things. It just makes everything a lot more exciting and "new" even though its just a change in products. Lucky for me there wasnt much things I hated or regretted trying out last month, I did use them frequently hence why they've hit in my September Favourites!

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
I ran out of my favourite makeup remover (the Garnier 2 in 1 MakeUp Remover) and I was looking at every single store for a cheap makeup remover that was good enough to remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner. I do love a good bargain, and Olive Oil is probably the best eye makeup remover let alone a cheaper alternative. I remember watching Michelle Phans old video of using Extra Virgin Olive Oil to remove her makeup and I just never tried it out because I have oily skin and I actually hate using oil or even touching it. I only use this method of removing eye makeup if I use a gel liner or a waterproof mascara, also I have to use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove the oil residue left on the eye after.

MAC LoveLorn
I did a review on this recently and I just love how wearable it is on an everyday basis!
It doesnt last long on the lips for me but when I put it on its such a smooth application and gives me a "My lips but better" colour. I personally dont reapply makeup and I hate it when lipsticks give you that lipliner affect after fading, luckily this one doesnt do that.
I've been using this lip colour every time I go out, I would say it's the perfect time to use this since the sun is finally shining!

Essano Moisture Restorative Night Creme
My skin was suffering pretty badly after ski camp back in late August and I was on the hunt for a night creme just to battle my super dehydrated and flaky skin. It came in the Essano Treat Your Skin Pack at Priceline which included 5 products that had Rose Hip Oil in them. 
And oh my gosh this is the best night creme ive tried. A little goes a long way and I always wake up with the softest skin, it makes your skin feel like velvet when you apply it.

Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate Hand Therapy
Last month I was trying to finish products to make room for the new and I managed to finish up the C&E Pomegranate Hand Cream (The back up one is the new packaging on the right)! It's my favourite scent out of all the hand therapies. My hands are very low maintenance as I find that they never appear dry and cracked, but I just use this hand cream for the sake of the scent.  

Angel Wing Arrow
I got this as a late birthday present from one of my friends and I've been wearing it with most of my outfits. Im a sucker for simple necklaces and this one has been one of my favs. What I love about it is that it has Angel wings as the tip and for obvious reasons it just makes it more personal to me. 

Pink Hair!
I was waiting until the school holidays were going to start just to dye my ombre pink.
I was a bit hesitant to do it because I though a bright pink wouldnt look good but I ended up loving it! I used half of Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink, a quarter mixed with conditioner as a base and then another quarter to cover the ends. I though I could somehow incorporate an ombre with that but didnt work as planned. My end results did somewhat fail as some pieces looked  like brownish pink highlights, it was due to the fact that I didnt section my hair and for those who are going to colour hair...section your hair and learn from my mistake.
So far after 11 days I do still have pink tips,  but the rest of my hair has faded into a dusty pinky/brown colour.
If there was a permanent pink hair dye, I would actually cry in excitement. 


  1. Great picks! I love MAC lipsticks. I haven't ever tried crabtree hand creams before but I know tons of people love it! I'm still trying to use up my L'occitane and The body shop ones.
