October 2016 - Monthly Favourites!

Hi all - sorry I'm a little late getting October wrapped up! Now that I have announced that I'm pregnant I can say that I have just been exhausted! As we get in to November here, I am getting in to my second trimester I am supposed to get some energy back! I am really hoping to get lots of blogging done during this time! 

Here is what I have been loving for October:

David's Tea Organic Cinammon Rooibos Chai ~ $16.00 (for the full tin). This breath-freshening tea combines rooibos, cinnamon and apple.

I'm not sure if I have ever done a Favourites post and included something other than beauty products - but this was a hands-down favourite this month. I have not been feeling the greatest, and this is one of the only teas I have been allowed while pregnant (and even so, you need to watch your cinnamon consumption!) But Rooibos is great because it is caffeine free and has a lot of benefits - also this is delicious! 

L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Superstar Liquid Eye Liner ~ $10.96. For a perfect winged eyeliner look, L’OrĂ©al Paris introduces Voluminous® Superstar™ liner. The flexible felt tip traces the curves of your eyelid to achieve a controlled thin to thick line in 1 stroke. The intense black formula glides on smooth with a shiny finish for iconic eyes that last all day.

I have been loving this eyeliner all month - this has been so amazing for precise eyeliner looks that I have been doing for my normal everyday and Halloween looks! Has a great felt tip and goes on so smoothly! 

Bath Time Box Refresh and Renew Bath Salts ~ $8.50. Let this special blend of salts take the wear of the day away, and you will emerge refreshed and renewed. A glorious blend of spa grade salts, water softening powders and top grade essential oils.

These bath salts remind me of the scent of a spa - they smell so relaxing! I love the scent and they are so soothing in the bath! 

Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub ~ sample size 1 oz for $7 (full size is 4 oz for $28). The Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub cleanses and purifies skin using a powerful combination of natural ingredients. Pumpkin Enzymes combine with Apple and Almond Acids to dissolve cellular debris within the pores while Apricot Grains and Micro-spheres gently polish away dead skin cells. An intoxicating blend of Pumpkin Oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E protect and hydrate skin to reveal an illuminating, flawless complexion.

This scrub smells amazing - just like pumpkin pie (or actually just like a pumpkin pie candle!) I think it is the perfect product to use for Fall! I did a little review about it here at the beginning of the month if you are interested! 

ColourPop Lippie Stix in "Poppin" ~ $5.00. If you need us we'll be poppin bottles in this.

I never thought this would be a shade that I could pull off - it is a bright pink, but almost red based and it seems universally flattering. I was really impressed! I have been loving this, and I don't generally go for a bold lip look at all! 

What have you guys been loving in October?
