September Favourites and Thoughts

September Thoughts 

Hello, I know what you are thinking – Laura it’s almost the end of October, where have you been? Why haven’t you done September favourites earlier? Well, I will explain. 

I moved into my new spacious flat on 7th of September, then shortly after my Masters course started. Days melted away as I was either working in a residential care home or at university. I have also started my driving lessons at last (it’s terrifying). I feel proud yet so tired.
Anyways, I still wanted to share a couple of things (and people) that I have loved this month.

Favourite Songs this Month

Here’s a Spotify playlist of my favourite tracks:

Favourite Bloggers of The Month

The Star Jar  - Ellen is a lovely girl, I found her on a Blogging Buddies page (more on that later) and then we started chatting on Facebook. Eventually, we had an incredible coffee meeting. Both of us being socially anxious individuals, I’m amazed how easy conversing with her was. She is mainly blogs about books, check her out!

Little White Socks – Aycan’s blog astound me, it’s pink, it’s colourful in the right ways. She has an incredible ‘brand’. Everything on her blog seems to have a purpose. I visit her blog for creative inspiration. In her blog there is something for everyone – from beauty to craft. Browse her blog!

Jenny in Neverland – Jenny is a professional, smart and honest blogger. She works so hard and always has wise thoughts to share. She posts high quality content consistently and an active communicator in the blogger community. Give Jenny some love!


Maybelline Superstay 24 hour foundation (£9.99) – I have seen Sophdoesnails rave about this foundation on YouTube and it intrigued me to get it. After all, my combination skin was crying for more coverage. I don’t tend to like matte foundations, however this Maybelline product surprised me. I only need two little pumps to cover my blemishes and it does not feel heavy at all. There is also 17 shades available, quite good for drugstore!

L’Oreal Color Riche Matte Lipstick (Moka Chic) (£6.99) – This is my favourite nude lipstick shade. The colour is just right, your lips but better sort of thing. I think it smells great and feels comfortable on the lips.

Mac Matte Lipstick (Diva) (£17.50) – Autumn has arrived, meaning that it’s finally time for those autumnal purple and burgundy lips. I have been loving the ‘vampy’ look lately. MAC lipsticks are iconic.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Perfume (£52 for 30ml) – I got this perfume for my birthday back in April. I love it, it has such a mysterious scent with vivid notes of coffee and vanilla.  When I’m wearing this perfume, it makes me feel like a grown-up.

Favourite Places

Roti House – An incredible, affordable restaurant serving delicious Indian cuisine in Hatfield. The staff there provide great service and the food is top quality.

Balans Soho Society – Café, restaurant and a bar in one. They serve great coffee, cocktails and amazing food. I had their Classic Club sandwich and it was heavenly. The atmosphere was chill there as well. I highly recommend this place! They are open in quite a few places in London.  

Favourite Home Bits

Moth Plate (I forgot the price sorry!) – I got this incredible plate to store miscellaneous things (probably jewellery) in the Halloween section of Tkmaxx. As soon as I found it in the shop, I grabbed it immediately.

Favourite Entertainment and Random Bits

Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) – I was never into musicals, so when my boyfriend insisted for me to watch this one, I was kind of meh, yeah maybe. Surprisingly, this film is great! It’s a horror, sci-fi musical starring Alexa Vega from Spy Kids as the main protagonist and there are few scenes with Paris Hilton (she is not that bad). The soundtrack is AMAZING! This is the film description:

"In the year 2056 - the not so distant future - an epidemic organ failures devastates the planet. Out of this tragedy, a saviour emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants, for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family's mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo, she is unable to turn back, as all of her questions will be answered at the wildly anticipated spectacular event:
The Genetic Opera"

PinterestPinterest is one of these sites that you don’t ever fully understand. I mean at least for me, it comes across this way. However, it’s an incredible resource for inspiration. It’s like a treasure chest full of everything. I’m always learning how to best approach Pinterest, my boards are organised around different areas of at the moment – Life Inspiration, Art Inspiration, Blogging Inspiration and more. You can find me on Pinterest here

Blogging Buddies Facebook Page – Last but not least, I have to mention this Facebook page made by Ruth (Ruthinrevolt) for bloggers to connect. She describes this group as “place to meet other bloggers and make some pals” I think that this group is incredible, there is no judgement and no you must do this to be a proper blogger. Currently, as I’m writing this post, Blogging Buddies has 635 members, but I’m sure we can get more! 😉

These are all of my late September favourite things and people. I hope you have enjoyed reading and found at least one thing that made you go “Oooooh, I want to try it!”. What have you been loving in September, and how is your life currently?
My apologies for being so slow with the blogging side of things. Keeping up to date with life is tough. I hate being an adult!

  3. No I totally feel the same way about pinterest, I feel like I'll never fully understand it either! And I've been using it for a few years now and I still feel the same way.
