October Favourites!

Hello there gorgeous people of the internet! 

Today I wanted to do an October favourites post as I had a few things that I was really into this past month! 

1) Blogging! I have LOVED blogging this past month, I have really enjoyed having an outlet for some of my hobbies and interests and I have loved talking to everyone too! The internet is just way more fun when you are part of the goth blogging community if you ask me! 

2) So like, lately I have been really feeling the whole over the knee boot trend. I got these in New Look for a very reasonable 50 euro and have been loving them. They go with quite a lot surprisingly enough and are quite comfortable once I have two pairs of socks on. They are a wide fit which I didn't realise until I wore them the first time. These were quite the bold new purchase for me as they are unlike a lot of my usual footwear but hey, a girl's gotta have variety right? 

I stole this from my Instagram.
 They look GREAT over jeans too for a colder weather look. 

3) Well I do love a good bargain and so I was delighted to spot this lipstick on sale in Boots in exactly the colour and finish I was looking for. It goes best over a lip liner in the same colour but it is somewhat transparent and shiny making it an easy one to wear during the day or in a rush. I love these lip crayons as they apply so nicely and don't take long. If I am in a rush I can pop on some Mascara, fill in my brows, pop some colour on my lips and look done up super fast. 

4) I had been neglecting my skin this summer and so I bought some of the Dr. Organic skincare line after hearing about how great it is. I have been really pleased with the results and have been especially loving the face wash, dead sea mask and rescue remedy eye roller! I intend to really keep up with a good skincare routine from now on! 

5) I really enjoyed using the Leo Bancroft hair mask pictured below, my bleached hair needs a lot of TLC pretty much all of the time and I get these sachets in Tesco for 1.30 and they really work. This product along with copious amounts of coconut oil have both really kept my hair looking vaguely decent which is nice! Then I have also been loving making my own purple shampoo by mixing some of the Directions Violet hair dye in with my shampoo and leaving it for a few minutes before rinsing. That really helped me get my hair a more white shade in October, I am currently more yellow toned after getting my roots done but a wash or two with that DIY shampoo should get me back to a cooler toned look. 

6) Cold weather has set in which means that I have been really enjoying wearing patterned tights with my skirts and shorts where possible. I also wear leggings underneath my skirts if it is really cold or jeans but if I can get away with it I like to dress up too. This is an entire bowl full of patterned tights! 

That is it for today's blog post. What did you guys love during the month of October? Any particular outfits or make-up products? Maybe you picked up an old hobby or started reading a new book? Let me know in the comments!

I always want to wear my fancy tights and it is always so hot in Australia! Looking forward to seeing the lipstick in a makeup picture!You are making me miss my knee high boots! They were lovely, but once again... heat. Not enough months to wear them in! Of course I want them back now, when it's too late!

Laura yeah it sucks when your climate impacts your personal style so much! I mean you can do other things of course but sometimes its not the same! You should get the boots and wear them 24/7 in those cooler months you get (i dont know Australian weather months) screw it!
