{Lifestyle} Favourite Things – October ’16


Pretty much all the items in this month’s favourites post are new items or items that have been updated this month! It’s pretty exciting that I’ve had this many awesome new things to fawn over. October was actually quite good for me, I had a few awesome events to attend, lots of trips out with friends and generally great Perth spring weather to enjoy.



Olaf the Cacti* | Let It Grow Co.
Olaf the Cacti* was gifted to me by Chelsea from the Let It Grow Co. (formally The Greenhouse Gathering) back in June, and amazingly not only have I kept him alive, but he has thrived! This October I noticed that he went through a massive growth spurt, practically doubling in size! He made the cut for my favourites this month simply because of how excited I was over his recent growth!

QV Self Check Breast Cream* | Priceline
A brand new product out this October was the QV Self Check Breast Cream* which was kindly gifted to me from the team at QV, this cream is seriously awesome, not only do proceeds from every sale go to the McGrath Foundation, but this cream is also specifically designed to remind women to self check their breasts, and includes information on what early signs of breast cancer you can look out for.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream | Sephora
I don’t know if you guys remember but I have mentioned a few times that I was on the hunt for my holy grail foundation. Well the search is officially off now that I have my hands on this CC Cream from IT Cosmetics. It has a very light coverage, however it does a surprisingly wonderful job of hiding blemishes, evening out my skin tone and brightening my face, all while feeling like there is nothing on my skin! I’m simply in love!

Josh Rosebrook Lift Hair Texture and Volume | Josh Rosebrook
This product, along with the CC Cream above, was given to me by Kodys mum, she loved it and thought I might too! Since undergoing the chop on my hair I have really needed products which help style and hold my hair, while most importantly giving it volume and texture. This has almost been a daily staple in my hair routine!

Japanese Honeysuckle and Rhubarb & Pear Candles | Shine Bright Candle Co.
I recently picked up my new order of candles from my favourite local candle place, Shine Bright Candle Co. I love supporting small local businesses and this chick is fantastic, she goes out of her way for her customers and everything she makes smells divine, this Japanese Honeysuckle candle refill was no exception, and the Rhubarb and Pear scent has basically been burning non stop since it arrived!

Rhombus Pendant Adjustable Choker* | Zaful
Zaful were kind enough to send me some items this October, and these two made my favourites list! First off this choker, I have worn it so much over the past month, seriously, I even wore it to the Bloggers United AU Perth Event and you can sort of see it on the Instagram posts from that day, as well as in my October Monthly Catch-Up Post.

Hollow Out Black Cat Eye Sunglasses* | Zaful
This was the other item gifted from Zaful that made the cut onto my favourites. I’ve recently run out of contact lenses and since these obviously aren’t prescription I haven’t been able to wear these as much as I would like, unfortunately looking freaking awesome is still slightly less important to being able to see and not crashing my car! However when I have worn these I have been complimented on them, and I think they go really well with my new hair style!

      I recommend the Josh Rosebrook Lift if you can get your hands on it, it’s so good, especially if you have short hair like me!

    The honeysuckle candle sounds divine and I’m so happy your Olaf cactus is thriving! Go Olaf! πŸ™‚

      Oh, Di, the candles are simply gorgeous! I’m also super impressed with Olaf, I didn’t really think he would survive, let alone thrive, I’m sure it’s no thanks to me though πŸ™‚

    Oh that necklace is lovely! It’s great you’re keeping the cactus alive – I so don’t have a green thumb, I got a little potted plant last year and I’m struggling to keep it alive haha!

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and you got some great stuff in the sales! πŸ™‚
