October Favourites 2016 | A bunch of fails combined in one post
I haven’t written as much as I should or wanted to but my life’s been crazy. I’m not going to make you lose a bunch of time reading this because let’s face it: ain’t nobody got time for that shite! Maybe I’ll do a Youtube video about it in the future, maybe I won’t, I don’t know yet but you can always catch up on Snapchat (Is it called just Snap already? Oh well).
SO, LET’S START, YEAH, HYPE! hehe
As some of you know (again, you really should follow me on Snap, just saying), I’m living in Portugal and October was one hot month. Can’t really say I liked it though. MOVING ON, because of the weather I can’t really show you all the “autumny” things my beloved friends from the UK & Ireland are showing you like knitted sweaters and so on but what I can do is show you the things I have been loving!
I-DIVINE EYESHADOW PALETTE IN AU NATUREL
Despite the fact that the weather didn’t have Autumn written all over it (it does now!), I’ve been loving to use more neutral make up, so this Sleek pallet is everything one can ask for. Mr. M gave it to me on my birthday and I honestly don’t know what I would do without it. Literally, forget the Naked pallet, this is all you need. The picture below was not embellished with a filter.
ESSENCE ALL MATTE LIPSTICK
Staying in the beauty category I’ve been loving this liquid lipsticks from Essence. They are everything my lips and bank account could ask for. They are totally matte, which is, like, my passion!, and they are SO SMOOTH that they might as well be called Joey Tribbiani. Also THE SMELL! Really! It smells like chocolate and gummy bears, at least the one’s I have. Things I don’t like about it: They seem a shade darker than they actually are and they take a while to actually dry.
Fail: I didn’t take a picture of the nude one and have no fucking idea what name/number they are. But you have swatches down below so…!
CHOCKERS BY STRADIVARIUS
Now if you have been keeping an eye on my Instagram (click here to go there!), you know I’ve been using chockers like A LOT! Full disclosure: I wore them before it was cool so stop right there with the judgement!
I’ve bought a few bunch a while ago on Stradivarius (they have an online store, thank me later) and got like 5 for 7€! I thought it was really cheap specially since I loved them all so much.
Fail: I’ve only photographed 3 because the other 2 are with my little sister and she’s at college (ALSO, I MISS HER FACE SO MUCH!)
TANK TOP BY FOREVER21
Now in this one I shall start by listing the fails:
1. I didn’t picture it because it was in the washing machine and I forgot that I had just washed it and I only have an Instagram picture to post.
2. I can’t recall any more fails about this… WOW! I wasn’t expecting this to be honest, so let’s pretend I didn’t write a list here okay?
I love this tank top from Forever21. I can’t explain exactly why, since it’s so similar with the most things I own, but I just like it very very much. You can see the long sleeve top in this picture although I know is not the best one to see the top.
SHOES BY BERSHKA
Staying in fashion, I pictured this one for Instagram as well so that might be the reason why this picture is not like the others.
This shoes are just… see for yourself! No, really, look! AGH! I CAN’T! I love them! Thank you Bershka!
HARRY POTTER SLIPPERS BY PRIMARK
Now you guys know I’m a Potterhead right?! Come on! I even have it on my bio! Okay, so imagine my face when I saw this sleepers! Aren’t they cute?? They’re from Primark and were only 4,50€!
Again, the first picture is from Instagram and that’s why is different than the others.
FAIRYLIGHTS BY PRIMARK
Finally, I have been loving this fairylights in the shape of a dragonfly! They’re from Primark and I’m using them on my background for my YouTube channel (which hasn’t launched yet!). The only thing is that the lights are white and I would rather have yellowish lights. But I find them gorgeous anyway!
EASY BY NETFLIX
Now is SHOWS time and this month I bring you EASY on Netflix. This show was presented to me by a friend and I really loved it! Easy is a comedy/drama with just one season and 8 episodes (bummer!), and it’s set in Chicago. Each episode has entirely new characters, new story and it’s about sex and relationships. It’s wonderful! Just wonderful! So please go check it out!
And finally a YouTube channel. Every month I’ll be doing this so if you know great YouTube channels let me know in the comments!
This month I’ve been LOVING Mike Falzone (click to go to his channel)! I’m a Falzone fan for a long time, specially his advicey type of videos! He’s just the type of guy that really goes with my personality so his videos are always great for me. He’s 30 something years old, it’s a great musician (yep, also does music), a great comedian and generally a great entertainer. PLUS he has a beard, so.. ya know.
As always this are my own opinions and this post was not sponsored in any way shape or form unless stated otherwise.
Love you all my internet friends and I see ya next time!
What?? You’re not following me already??!
I’m @ellaivoire in all of it – no excuses next time!!
