Ideally I wanted all these holiday related written up, posted and done all last week, however for some reason life has just been manic at the moment. Don’t know how it seems so manic as nothing has really changed from my usual routine, however it has.
Now after this post, there will be one kind of holiday related post (or should that be major rant) and then things will be back to normal. I’ve also got the major chew on of needing to find a dress/outfits for the upcoming festivities- expect blog posts on this.
Anyway as most of October I didn’t really do much (watching the pennies), my October favourites will also double up as holiday favourites. Apologies for the rubbish quality of pictures- they were done on my iphone over there.
Hair doughnut £1- Primark. Hair up in a pony, whack that on, mess up hair, pin it. Bish bash bosh done. Can’t be robbed for a £1 from Primark (especially when boots sell them for £5+).
Tangle Teezer- It was on my holiday favourites last time, its back again. JEM wants one for xmas, its just fab.
Aussie Take the Heat Leave in Spray- I won this in a giveaway on Carla's blog, and I’ve been using it religiously since receiving it. However on holiday I saw how fab this product is, after I thought it was a great idea to dive bomb in the pool, then do some handstands (as you do), and then realised I hadn’t brushed the back combing out of my hair the night before. Cue spraying my hair in this and using the tangle teezer, the knots came out straight away. Drenched my hair in this, and left to dry/bake in the sun- hair ended up really soft and lush. Will definitely be repurchasing once I’ve finished with it.
Macadamia Oil Treatment- this came in September (??) Boudior Prive box, and its been highly rated on peoples blogs (especially Laura's), and each night after washing my hair, I would use this on the ends to keep them soft. Like all oil treatments a little goes a very long way (my hair is right down my back- just realised it’s the same length as my hair extensions now. I won’t be repurchasing it.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish- I’m going to do a separate post on these (ie how these products worked for me on holiday, and how multi-functional these products are). So keep your eyes peeled for those.
Barry M Nail Paint in Bright Orange- party on your nails. I’m wanting to do a proper review of this polish. But this is holiday in a bottle.
Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb- one of my all time favourite perfumes. Not too strong, but lasts all night.
Mac Eyeshadow in Haux- if you own this eyeshadow, try it with satin taupe in the crease. That’s all what I’m saying. WOW.
Elf Tinted Moisturser in Beige- this paired with Mac MSFN was my nightly make up base. Blends in well, provides more than enough coverage, and it was only £1.75 (50% off sale).
Topshop Head over Heels cream blush- previously blogged about here. I ended up using this every night. Very impressed with the staying power. Your cheeks but better.
Vivo lippy in barely there, and Barry M lip paint in 147- both fab drug store lippies. The Barry M lippy has magic vanishing abilities.. will do a post explaining this in more detail.
Elf spf 15 lipbalm- does what it says.
17 Falsifeye mascara- False lashes in a tube?? Not quite but it does a good job of attempting to get there.
Cheeky swatches.
