September Favourites

September has flown by, I started a new internship and have been having to get used to the commuter lifestyle. Having to leave the house everyday by 6:30am to make it into work on time has been a bit of a shock to the system but I have been perfecting a new morning routine so that I can maximise sleeping in time. This months favourites are things that have made my new busy lifestyle a little more pleasurable.

This month I have been loving mainly all my new product purchases, apart from my old favourite fragrance.

Starting off my favourites I have Monkey Balm. This was something that I picked up whilst traveling in Thailand on recommendation by our guide. It is a very thick hard balm which can be used on practically anything. I have been applying it to my temples and forehead whenever I have a headache and the balm gives a gentle cooling effect which helps relieve any tension. It smells of menthol but I have no idea what it actually contains because all the writing is in Thai. A similar product which is available here in the UK is Tiger Balm which is available all over the place.

My second favourite this month has been the balmi lip balm cube. I got this in my goodie bag from the Cosmopolitan Fashion Awards and haven't been able to put it down since. Its a lovely menthol flavour which leaves your lips a little tingly (in a good way).

Next is my very exciting new purchase from Tarte. I managed to get my hands on this foundation brush and the liquid foundation on ebay for a reasonable price. The brush is incredible it leaves your foundation looking as if you have airbrushed it onto your face. I haven't touched any of my other foundation brushes since even my Real Techniques one which I loved.

I won't ramble on about the Daisy by Marc Jacobs fragrance because I have already done a full review on it but I have recently been using this everyday to prolong the smell of summer.

I have two fashion related favourites this month which are my PS I Love You ring from Anna Lou of London and the Cosmopolitan Fashion issue. I have worn the ring practically everyday this month because I think its cute and adds some suitable sparkle to outfits. The Cosmopolitan Fashion issue was released this month and is jam packed with amazing photography and outfit inspiration. It is an extra large publication so makes a stylish coffee table magazine.
