Gratitude: October 2018

Compared to last month October hasn’t been a month of driving practice and reading. I haven’t been on a drive for a number of weeks due to different things getting in the way and I haven’t been hitting my usual target of one book a week. I feel like I have been listening to music a lot and quarter four always brings new releases. October felt busy and I almost can’t believe all of these memories are part of the same month.

Here’s what made me smile:

October 1: My Makeup Revolution blush palette arrived!

October 2: Tried an apple turnover for the first time.

October 3: Rainbow dance party at work.

October 4: Got bits for quiz night.

October 5: Quiz night makeup turned out nice.

October 6: Blog post preppin’ for the week ahead.

October 7: Smoky eye and pink cheeks and lips.

October 8: Online retail therapy courtesy of White Fox Boutique.

October 9: Kind people commenting on my lipstick (Show Orchid by MAC).

October 10: Soft, pink makeup.

October 11: Burger King lunch.

October 12: The rain was nice.

October 13: Mum always reassures me that things will be ok.

October 18: My order from White Fox Boutique arrived.

October 27: My brother came down to help look after mum.

October 28: Productive blog photo day.

      No I didn’t get to see them but mum and I wanted to. If she had been better we might have. Traffic was a nightmare as people came from all over the country so part of me is glad I stayed at home lol xx

    Love when how you do these posts, Chanelle!

    How is your Makeup Revolution palette? I’ve been wanting to try that brand! The pieces you purchased from White Fox are both super cute. & nothin’ beats an afternoon nap. ♡

    Happy November!

    Forgive my ignorance but what’s an apple turnover? Like an upside pineapple cake?
    And will you be giving your thoughts on the MUR palette? I got an eyeshadow palette too but haven’t started playing with it because I need to do first impressions on two others lol.
    And your mom is so supportive and sweet! Love that!
