Orange leaves, shiny conkers, cold nights and Halloween festivities – the changing of season from Summer to Autumn has been gradual but fun and I’ve really enjoyed October.
With this in mind, I thought I’d try something a bit different and recap what I’ve loved this month!
The Lush Halloween Range
From Sparkly Pumpkins to melt in the bath ghosts, the Lush Halloween range has really impressed me this month and I’m loving it all! Old favourites have made a re-appearance whilst new pieces have pleasantly surprised. Bubble baths are particularly rewarding as the nights get colder, longer and darker. There’s nothing more satisfying than a soak in soft perfumed bubbles whilst it rains bitterly outside.
My favourite from this range was The Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar £3.95
The Sonny Angel Halloween Series
I’m a sucker for all things Halloween and the new Sonny Angel range is no exception! I’m absolutely loving the adorably spooky designs and was lucky enough to open one of each – including the super-rare Robby!
Sonny Angels £7.50 per blind box. You can buy them at Didi Inspired!
Mustard Yellow Knits
Scouring the shop rails this month I have seen my favourite autumnal colours pop up once again. Flashes of rust orange, forest greens, burgundy and mustard yellow. With the weather getting colder, chunky knits are a must-have and I’ve picked up a couple of really lovely mustard yellow pieces from Primark as well as knitting up my own scarf in this dreamy and cosy colour.
This lovely cable knit cost just £10 from Primark. If you want one you’ll have to hurry – sizes for these seem to be quite limited.
This month I’ve been reading The Book of You by Clare Kendall and Try Not To Breathe by Holly Seddon- both of which have had me gripped. I love a thriller and trying to work out the mysteries hidden between the pages of a good book. If you’re looking for something a little different, I can’t recommend these novels enough. Perfect for lazy weekend reading.
The Book of You £7.99 and Try Not To Breathe £7.99 both paperbacks from Waterstones.
I’m a big fan of crime podcasts, and don’t know how I would get through hours of work without them to keep me company. My all time favourite is Sword and Scale (which you can listen to here) This is perfect listening if you have a morbid sense of curiosity and want a snug evening indoors with the heating turned up and the candles on.
I Love Crafty Autumn Kitties Range
I love picking up fun jewellery pieces to add a playful accent to my outfits and I am a big fan of the I Love Crafty X Pony People seasonal kitties collab. Last year I snagged a Halloween and Spring Kitty. This year I was lucky enough to win a fantastic voucher for Etsy in an instagram competition and there was no doubt I’d be spending it on the adorable Autumn kitties range! What a perfect way to celebrate the season in style. I picked up this cute kitty napping on a mushroom.
Autumn Kitty priced £24 can be found here!
