October Favourites 2018

October has felt like a busy month. We are heading towards the end of the year and this month has had many different things going on. I made some online orders (clothes and makeup), myself and my mum have been ill and I haven’t read as much as I would have liked due to busy pace. The past few weeks I’ve felt tired and haven’t eaten all that well due to being sick.

Onto this month’s favourites:

1. Urban Decay Primer Potion – I purchased the Primer Potion from MECCA Beauty last month and I have been using it non stop! In this post it was love at first use and one month later I feel exactly the same. This is one of those cult beauty products that is worth the hype! Going into warmer weather this will help my eye makeup stay on longer. This primer doesn’t irritate my eyes and it’s just as easy to remove as it is to apply.

2. Kmart Iridescent Metal Straws – Metal straws are good because they are reusable but what’s cool about these ones is they are iridescent and change colour depending on the light. Sometimes mum and I make milkshakes if we have milk that’s going to go out of date and we don’t want to waste it. We’ve started using these straws in our milkshakes instead of plastic ones. The texture of the metal is different if you’re used to plastic but it’s no big deal. (FYI, I’ve reused plastic straws in the past too, I don’t always throw them away after one use).

3. Kylie Little Stars Duvet Cover – This duvet cover is actually for children but it doesn’t look like it. The duvet is a double and I don’t know about you but I never had a double bed as a child – I still don’t – it has the perfect amount of drop for my king single bed. The duvet is a lovely blush pink colour although it looks more cream in photos (the duvet was the backdrop for the main image). With this duvet set I got two pillowcases and three cushions and a couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of the cushions to my Instagram. The sparkly sequins are what make this set look more grown up.

4. The Body Shop Virgin Mojito Body Butter – I have only used this a couple of times already but I do like the scent. The scent is zesty and fresh and not like the girly, sweet ones I usually plump for. I bought this in a Boxing Day sale in December 2017 so I’m glad to finally start using it! I do think it is an appropriate spring scent and using this in winter would have been odd. I love the lime green colour of the body butter and the texture is super soft and creamy.

The Me Spree: Birthday Edition

The Me Spree: Birthday EditionHey there! In my New In: January post I mentioned I had plenty of bits and bobs I’d picked up throughout the month to share with you and most of them actually feature in this post. Mum and I went away for a few days at the end of January to celebrate our birthdays and I did a fair bit of shopping. I am still coming to grips with everything I bought and trying to find places for some of it.

Just a quick note, not all the images in this post are mine. Due to the sheer number of items, I only photographed items I couldn’t find images of online.

Me Spree Birthday Edition Buys1. The Body Shop Golden Glimmer Sparkler | Who doesn’t need glitter in a spray bottle?! These were part of The Body Shop’s Christmas 2015 range and I can’t believe I didn’t know about these until a friend told me three weeks ago. 2. Cotton On Anna High Neck Tee | I saw a top similar to this online and fell in love with it. I love how it’s fitted but still accentuates curves. The sleeve length is lovely. 3. Forever New Joan Laser Pouch Case | This little pouch instantly screamed glam to me! It is a lilac/nude colour with silver diamante detailing and I thought this would be good for those days where you want to bring the essentials with you but don’t need a handbag. 4. Wire Storage Basket – Copper | I don’t know what I’m going to use this basket for yet but there are loads of possibilities. It was too cute not to buy!

5. Dotti Piece of Art Tee | I don’t have a lot of printed clothing in my wardrobe but the colours on this top work and I really like the print. It’s different and the material is so light, it’s perfect for summer. 6. kikki.K 3 Piece Bowl Set | I picked up this set of ceramic bowls on sale and I thought they would be good for keeping jewellery and little bits in. The bowls are part kikki.K’s Be Brave collection. 7. kikki.K CD Storage Box | kikki.K make a range of different sized boxes for storage and photos and they come in different colours. I chose this white glossy box to keep all my craft goodies together. 8. kikki.K Glitter Tape 2M | I am partial to sparkle so I needed this glitter tape in my life!

9. Typo Pastel Aztec Pencil Case | How well does this match the Dotti Piece of Art Tee?! I have always had a slight obsession with pencil cases and the pink, pretty print and gold suckered me in. 10. Typo A5 Spinout Notebook | I have spoken before about my love for these notebooks and when I see a cover I like I try to pick one up. I really like the message and colours on this notebook and hope to use it as a blog planner. 11. Pagani Basic Tee | As soon as I walked into the store I spotted this tee and the blush with black looked absolutely beautiful. I tried this on and ended up buying a couple of sizes smaller than I’m used to. 12. Rubi Jodi Sneakers Black Glitter | I didn’t realise glittery sneakers were a thing but I’ve jumped on the bandwagon. These were only $10 so even if they don’t last that long, I’m not fussed.Me Spree Birthday Buys

13. Dotti Pom Pom Keyring | I have been looking for one of these pom poms for a while now and finally found one I’m happy with. I knew I wanted a light colour to contrast with my black handbag and I wanted it to look ‘right’. A lot of other ones I saw didn’t look symmetrically round and the fur felt cheap. This one doesn’t have real fur but it feels soft and is much nicer than others I’ve seen. 14. TEMT Singlets 2 For $10 | Singlets are always good for summer and underneath other tops for layering. 15. TEMT Tops 2 For $20 | I chose a white sheer sleeveless blouse and a navy strappy top with gorgeous back detail.

16. Typo Write Away Multi Pen Pack | As a blogger and stationery enthusiast you can never have enough pens! This pack features six metallic colours: green, gold, silver, pink, blue and copper. 17. Lovisa Rose Gold Ring | I am a huge fan of rose gold and it was my mum who spotted this ring and told me to buy it – such an enabler! 18. kikki.K Cute Notebook Elastic | These elastics are pen holders for notebooks and come in two sizes, small and large. I bought the A5 size as most notebooks I own are smaller rather than larger.

I also got two MAC products which I decided not to include in this post. If you want to read about them check out last week’s post, New MAC Products. The patentpolish lip pencil was a gift from my brother and I purchased the lipstick myself.

So, that’s everything! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I’ve been doing to my bank balance and if you have any questions or want to know more, leave a comment below!
