    Dreamy Teas and Heavenly Haircare

    Ahhh…yes. It is that time of the month again where I ramble on about how quickly the year seems to be passing. But really though, how is it almost November already? I for one am in no way ready for the Scottish winter weather just yet! The past few weeks have been super busy (and exciting) for me both blog-wise and in real life. Maybe time does pass quicker when you’re having fun eh? This month I also seem to have discovered quite a few fabby products from beauty bits to dreamy autumnal drinks. Today I thought that I would share a few things that I have been obsessing over lately.
    First up – Lush Sleepy
    After reading one too many Buzzfeed articles about the magical sleep-inducing powers of this lush body lotion, I decided to give it a try for myself. As I am not the biggest fan of lavender scented products, I did worry how I would get on with this. However, unlike other sleep/relaxation products I have tried, the scent is far from overpowering. In fact, it actually smells a lot more like candy – I think this has something to do with the almond oil and Tonka absolute (whatever that actually is). Whilst I can’t claim that it has had crazy results, I have really enjoyed incorporating this into my nighttime routine. The scent is super relaxing and the butter and oils contained within the cream leave the skin feeling silky soft come morning time.

    Tresemme Keratin Smooth
    One thing I never really chat about on my blog is hair care. To be honest, I would much rather pick up some makeup or skincare bits rather than products for my hair – they’re just not my thing. However, as the ends of my hair have been ombred, I often find that they can sometimes look a little .. straw-like (chic, I know).  Therefore, this month I have been trying out Tresemme’s Keratin smoothing serum and shine oil in hopes of reviving my dry ends. So far, I have been amazed by the results. In the past, I haven’t ever noticed that much of a difference when using different haircare products but this reviving dream team has left my hair feeling ultra smooth and nourished. The products also smell delicious! I imagine that these will be great for using during the colder months too. Result!

    Nip and Fab Eyebrow Pencil
    As a beauty obsessive, I am always keen to try out new products and brands. Therefore, when I spotted the new Nip and Fab beauty range in Superdrug, I was unsurprisingly, intrigued. Personally, I feel that good eyebrow products can be hard to come by. I often find that some powders can be too orange toned for my ashy brows and some pencils can be too firm. However, this crayon just seems to tick all of the boxes for me. It is the perfect shade, it is super soft and easy to work with and you get an impressive amount of bang for your buck! This has quickly become a go-to staple for me. I can’t wait to try out some more products from the Nip and Fab range.
    Tea India Chai Tea
    After a chilly autumn day, there is nothing better than cozying up and chilling out with a big cuppa in hand! This month I have been loving this Masala Chai tea from Tea India. Packed with cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, it is basically (dare I say it) Christmas in a cup. If you are looking for an instant winter warmer drink, I would totally recommend trying it out for yourself. I also used these tea bags within my D.I.Y pumpkin spice latte recipe which I popped up on the blog last week. Why not have a peek!

    Now, don’t get me wrong, I am always up for a good Youtube binge. However, this season I have really loved keeping up with some of my favourite creator’s Vlogtober attempts. As a blogger, I really appreciate how much time and effort goes into creating online content. To think that some people upload every day whilst having other commitments blows my mind a little bit. I mean, a video a day – editing, scheduling and all? How do they do it? Anyway… a few vloggers I have really enjoyed watching this month include Helen Anderson (what a babe), Rhiannon Ashlee Vlogs and Sunbeams Jess. 
    I hope you enjoyed this little roundup of my monthly favourites! What have you been loving this month?
