Long time no speak. So it has been a considerable amount of time since I last posted something and I can only apologise, I have just been so busy, time has just run away with itself.
I thought I would come back and share a favourites with you as it has been a few months since my last one. Now things have changed a little and I have really had to curb my spending habits as I have reduce the amount of hours I am working in my part time job and this equals a seriously poor Bexx. Because of this I haven't been able to try out too many new products as my bank balance just won't allow it but I have uncovered some old favourites as well as some fashion and lifestyle favourites too.
Bare minerals mineral veil powder
I stole this from my mums make-up bag as she never uses it! I really like this powder, it provides great lasting power but doesn't look cakey on the skin. Also it is transparent so there isn't any added colour here.
MAC dark deed
I got this lipstick as a gift last christmas, and quite frankly was a little scared by just how dark it was. However this month I discovered it and thought I would give it another go, and know I am in love! I just pat this in with my finger, as it is so dark a little goes a long way but it is such a gorgeous plum shade I can't believe it has taken me a year to realise it!
Body shop tea tree cool and creamy face wash
This was in my September Favourties so I won't ramble on about it too much but this stuff has reached holy grail status for me. I does an amazing job of really purifying the skin and keeping the blemishes at bay but is not at all drying, I use this every morning and absolutely love it!
Vo5 Plump it up Mousse
As I have expressed in previous posts, my hair sometimes resembles a pancake. I was a little fearful of putting mousse in my hair as I always associate it with crispy, crunchy hair from my teenage days but in an attempt to get more volume I thought I would give it a go. I put some of this on freshly washed hair and it just adds a really nice lift to the roots. This is also a heat defence - added bonus!
I got this mini in a little set with sun beam and cha-cha tint. I was a little confused by this to start with, mostly about how to apply it so it got thrust to the back of the draw for a while. I have found that if I put it on my hand and then pat it into my cheeks, this way it leaves a really natural flush that really brightens the face.
Turtle neck jumpers
Roll neck, turtle neck, whatever you want to call them, I love them. I find them very warm but also very easy to wear and layer up. They have become my go to thing to chuck on when I am not sure what to wear.
How to get away with murder
If you haven't watched this yet, then you are seriously missing out. I know I am a law student so this immediately appealed to me, but I do really think it would appeal to a lot of people. It is set in a university law school and is based around 4 law students who have murdered someone. It is a true murder mystery, I am now 6 episodes in an still none the wiser as to who killed the victim and why!
So there it is, my monthly favourites. I seriously cannot believe it is nearly the end of 2014, I know we all say it every year but this one really has flown by. I will try my best to start uploading regular posts again.
Until next time,
