A Few Favourites No. 4

It's been another month, which means it's time for another mix of things that I've been loving.

Like everyone else on the planet, my lips have got a whole lot drier this Autumn, so I've been relying on this thick and nourishing balm from The Body Shop. It smells divine and leaves my lips much softer.

Whether it's from Caffe Nero, or from a jar, you can guarantee that I'm enjoying hot chocolate at this time of year. There's literally nothing better than wrapping yourself up in a nightgown and sipping on hot chocolate when the house gets colder but you're not emotionally ready to turn the central heating on just yet. The whole thing makes me feel quite festive. Is it too early to go Christmas shopping? Yes. But I'm doing it anyway.

I've always struggled with strip lashes as my eyes are so close to my eyebrows - they always look too long and a little ridiculous. Individual lashes have been a game changer for me. I personally find them a lot easier to apply and prefer the way they look. I usually wear three or four on the outer corners of each eye before I film a video or go out, but you could easily wear more if you want a dramatic look. I put a bit of eyelash glue on the end of the lash, and then use tweezers to drop it on my eyelid.

Scream Queens
I'm still not 100% sure if this programme is ridiculous or genius, all I know is that I'm hooked. There's a decent mix of murder and comedy... something I never thought I'd say. You have to have a dark sense of humour to enjoy it, obviously.

It will surprise literally no one that I've been reaching for a lot of warm-toned eyeshadow over October. I initially skimmed over this palette as it looks very cool, but there's a few really nice gold, copper and brown shades that I've been loving. Usually I take one of the shimmery shades on my lid, and put a little bit of bronzer in my crease, and I'm done.

What have you been loving this month?
