October Faves 2017

Hey kiddos. October was all about HALLOWEEN of course! But I also spent a lot of time finding new YouTubers to follow, trying new beauty products and, oh yes, booking another trip. Lol. Think I might have a problem. Here are my October Faves, babes.

October Faves 2017

This month I went to… Halloween Shenanigans

A Halloween girls night in is now becoming an annual thing with my gal pals. We get together around Halloween time, have dinner together, carve pumpkins and watch non-scary Halloween films like Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic. Yes, I’m a pussy.

This year we headed to my homegirl Samantha’s house for the occasion and ate all the pizza. What do you think of our pumpkins?


I also went to the annual Stony Stratford Zombie Pub Crawl again! No explanation, it’s all in the name. But it’s a tradition, and this year Josh and I went as zombie Mary Poppins and Bert! It was so much fun! Y’know, until the after-party clean up the next day…

This month I’m watching… Binging with Babish

Binging With Babish is my new favourite YouTube channel, combining two of my biggest loves in life, food and television.

He recreates dishes from TV and film that are sometimes amazing and make you want to try out the recipe (like the Big Kahuna Burger from Pulp Fiction) and other times disgusting (like Homer Simpson’s Moon Waffles). But either way I always want to see what he does with it.

I tried out his recipe for Kevin’s Texan Chilli from The Office and oh my it was a game changer. I make chilli all the time but a few of these tips and ingredients have massively upgraded my usual recipe. Hello ancho chillies.

On top of the amazing food, Babish has such a soothing voice that his videos are just really nice to watch. Check out his channel over here, you won’t regret it.

This month I’m using… Feel Unique Beauty On The Go Kit

The babes at Feel Unique sent me an impromptu delivery this month (#BloggerPerk). I’m still trying out some of the fancy products but thought I’d show you this cutie-pie Beauty On The Go Kit. It’s a lil beauty bag filled with mini products and accessories and the ‘Jetsetter’ version is ideal for long haul journeys.

The pouch alone is super soft and keeps everything in one place. It has a mini brush, an eye mask, nail file, mirror, you know all the basics. But it also has a wonderful hydrating mist and some Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. So it’s really handy!

This month I’m booking… ANOTHER city break to Spain!

I know right, AS IF I have any annual leave left?!

Well my friend, I had a measly 2 days of annual leave left and I spent them on a 4 day city break to Spain. I’m heading to Alicante with Jet2 City Breaks and I’m really excited to A) get a bit of winter sun and B) eat everything in the birthplace of tapas!

Watch this space, pal.

That’s a wrap on my October faves, y’all. Come back for the November faves where I will most definitely be Christmas-crazy already.
