Yaaaaaaay!!! It’s October first 🍂 it’s basically Halloween!! 🎃
… Almost anyway😂 I think besides September and my birth month January, October must be one of my favourite months because it is just so darn beautiful! I mean it starts to get much colder and darker but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing😉 Makes the school day go quicker – so be greatful!
As well as it being October first, it’s also national coffee day! ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️ you bet that I’ve already had my cup😉 This is every coffee addicts favourite day😍 even though we always drink coffee, this is just an excuse to drink ten times the normal amount 😂 #NoJudgement
When it does get into October, I really like to make sure I get a few things just to make the month a bit better and seasonal. When I mention seasonal only one thing comes to my mind: CANDLES! One of the best things ever possibly created – aside from Miranda and chocolate 🍫obvs – So I decided to go autumnal / stationary shopping to just get a few bits: ⏬
Starting off with this absolutely beautiful notebook 📓 it is the perfect shade of pink & it has a material feel to it which I really like on a journal/notebook. TBH the thing that really caught my eye was the fact it says ‘Daydreamer’ on it and that literally describes me in one word😂 I plan to use this notebook for mostly school, like writing ideas for future photography series’ or art projects as well as possibly blog post ideas? Just those types of things – proper daydreaming things.
The next items really bring out the organisation freak in me😂 It’s basically two notepads that get your life in order🙏🏼 A weekly planner and a desk planner – now thank god for these things because I would be lost within my life right now if I didn’t have them😂😍 I’m that kind of person that has to write things down to be able to do them or remember them so these things are very useful! It also has a doodles box to make life more fun when you’re dying trying to write that essay due in tomorrow.
Taking a different route now within my haul, I am moving on to makeup, but there isn’t loads so don’t get excited —In fact, it’s only two lip liners😂 and it’s not even Kylie Jenner lip liners – it is however Boutique liners. If you don’t know that shop, it’s basically a British brand (I think) that sells very good makeup – especially lip liners and lipstick 💄🙏🏼 I either shop there or Sleek for liners. This trip I picked up two; my usual shade of peach pink that I was running out of, and a more brown-reddish shade for autumn 🍂 The first one is called Chinese Whispers and it is a very light peach shade, reminds me of Kylie’s Dirty Peach lip kit😊 goes very nicely with my blonde hair and brown eyes too – I usually pair it with dark brown shadow and long lashes💁🏼 The second one I haven’t worn yet, but it’s a very autumnal brown-reddish shade called Seal One’s Fate – I have to give Boutique props for the great names🙌🏼 – basically this lip colour could seal ones fate😂 The reason I buy lip liners a lot is because I usually wear them on their own everyday, it’s something light that doesn’t rub off easily and gives my lips a nice pigment that isn’t too heavy.
Finally, the last thing (thank you for reading this long-ass post😉) is the best one of all🙌🏼🙌🏼 – all of the people that didn’t read this far missed out 😅😝 It’s a candle😍 but not just any candle — a fall candle👌🏼 It has the most perfect name ever, Apple Cinnamon Cider 🍎 It smells prety much exactly that, and very strongly too which is something that I personally love, being an candle enthusiast (which is not a sad title thank you very much). It is a Yankee candle and it’s in the Home Inspiration collection they have out in Sainsbury’s, it literally does make my room a home😂 if you like strong spicy yet sweet smells then you will absolutely love this candle, even when you’re burning it and you’re sitting next to it you can smell it. Sometimes with candles you have to leave the room and come back to appreciate the smell but not this candle👌🏼 personally Yankee and Bath and Bodyworks candles are the best ones💛 although England doesn’t currently have a Bath and Bodyworks yet – so Yankee is really my only option right now.
I hope you enjoyed the first day of October and also happy international coffee day!! ☕️🍂😍
