September Beauty Club

FionaThis month we talked a lot about the arrival of Autumn and how excited we were for a burgundy lip, a new winter coat and good telly.

The darker nights can sometimes make getting up just that bit harder so, settle down with a  brew and have a read about what’s been making us smile this month.

Laura is in her final year of uni and has just got her student loan through so picked up a few things that have been on her ‘to buy’ list for a while. She is trying to use less single use plastic and find other eco-friendly replacements to use in her regime. This month she got bamboo cotton buds and reusable cotton pads. We also discovered that Johnson’s baby cotton ear buds are made of cardboard now and not plastic so opt for those if you can!

Lucy has a birthday coming up so is making her wish list as she’s been a very good girl this year. She’s after Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow palette in Pillow Talk and the new Hourglass Caution Mascara. Both perfect as we start to head into Christmas party season.

Preparing for an indulgent Christmas, Carrie has just started a new 16 week training programme and diet plan to improve her strength and tone her body. So far she has lost 3lbs and is feeling great with a lot more energy. Although it did mean her missing out on salt and pepper chips at our meet-up!

Emmy is currently renovating her newly bought Victorian terrace and so she is all about home interiors. She is opting for a cosy look in her living room with blankets, textures, candles and soft lighting. To complete the look she is eyeing up a new dressing gown and slippers too.

Now the weather is getting colder, Rachel is loving the Ordinary “Buffet” Serum. She likes using a serum on cooler nights and this one leaves her skin feeling plump and nourished in the morning. Mega bonus points as the extra hydration means she doesn’t need full coverage foundation in the mornings so that’s another couple of minutes in bed!

As for me, I’ve found my skin isn’t liking the temperature drop and indoor heating so I’ve added Alpha H Liquid Gold back into my routine and am also piling on my (second) favourite bed companion – REN V-Cense Revitalising Night Cream and Clarins Lotus Oil to keep me moisturised to the max.

See you again in October! x
