Month in Photos: October

Wednesday, November 05, 2014
I cannot believe it is now November, where has the year gone! October has been filed with a LOT of new makeup releases, testing products, halloween makeup, baking, a baby shower, hair loss, crafting, my mums + granddads birthdays and winning a couple of amazing competition including one where Becky Sheeran from Talk Becky Talk mentions my blog! 

First up, I won an amazing competition this month on twitter hosted by the youtuber Talk Becky Talk. You had to tweet a autumn video suggestion to her and she would make the video for the new Hello Fashion website and give a shout out to the winner. I won and I didn't expect her to go onto my blog and mention it in the post and her video. It was so surreal watching her talk about me and my blog briefly as I watch her videos anyway! You can check out her post and video, here!

Most of the time my creativity is channelled into my blog photos and writing but this month I have been baking gingerbread cookies for the first time which everyone loves and creating halloween makeup looks. I actually created a halloween look for the Fragrance Direct blog (here) along with the likes of Miss Budget Beauty and the lovely Georgina from She Might Be Loved, here. I was given the 'lady vamp' look to recreate, its definitely not a look I would have chosen to do as it isn't very scary or creative but I like the way it turned out and Fragrance Direct is one of my favourite beauty websites so it was great to work with them again. 

Also this month I have been doing something that I didn't think I ever would - knitting! Well, it is actually loom knitting which is far easier in my opinion. My auntie taught me and we made a baby blanket for one of my best friends who is almost due - we went to her baby shower this month and everyone loved the blanket! I also made one myself for my mums birthday last week and I am currently making a blanket for my sister! If you would like a wool pom pom blanket for yourself or as a baby/pram blanket let me know and I can make one! 

Last but not least, I have been sorting out all of the 25 PRIZES for my big christmas giveaway which should be live on the 1st December containing a range of makeup, stationary, nail products, skincare and a Pauls Boutique clutch bag worth £50! 


I hope everyone had a great October, I am now full of a cold so I missed a blogger event yesterday *cries* but November looks like it will be a great month! Happy bonfire/Guy Fawkes Night!!

  5. I love Becky's blog, it must have been very cool to see her chatting about you! I'm sorry you're not feeling well, it sucks when illness gets in the way of plans xx
