September Favourites 2016

Beauty

Two Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter

I bought this highlighter back in June but haven’t used it until the end of September. BUT, it is so beautiful that I had to feature this on my September favourites even though I’ve been loving it for a few days! This highlighter is absolutely stunning and gives the cheeks such a beautiful brightened glow. I don’t know why I haven’t used it sooner! Two Faced products are all so beautifully packaged and I am just in love with the pink theme. It just looks so girly and elegant. When you open it, it has two different colours, a white and a subtle pink. Mix this both with the Real Techniques highlighting brush, and you get such a lovely glow. It is £25 but worth the price (for me anyway as highlighters last a very long time for me!)

TV

Stage School

I wanted to see what this show was about as it looked quite good from the trailer. I watched the first episode and I found it so cringeworthy! It is based around students at D&B performing arts school in Bromley about all the going-ons inside the school, such as girl drama, boy drama and everyone competing to audition to get a role in a certain part in a music band, a play or dance.  The thing is, it is so bad but so good that I am hooked! I have been watching all the episodes so far. It airs weekdays on E4 at 19:30. The most ironic thing about it is that even though it is a reality show, it seems very much set up and the majority of the students cannot act or sing. In the middle and at the very end of each episode, one student breaks into a song, singing a current chart hit, performing in a music video. It’s so cringe and that’s the only word I can use to describe it – but for some reason, I just cannot stop watching it!

Fashion

Cat Ear Headbands

I have been loving wearing cat ear headbands this month. They are so cute and goes perfectly with my style!

Politics

US Presidential Election Debate

US politics is rare for me to talk about but this election has got everyone interested because of one man – Donald Trump. I watched the debate versus Trump and Clinton and I found it very much amusing. Hilary seemed to keep her cool by laughing at whatever Trump said. I really loved the part when Hilary talked about Trump avoiding tax in his past and he replied by saying “At least I was smart about it.” It just made me laugh! I know what the world thinks about trump but you’ve got to give him credit for how much he has changed politics and has something else to offer. Half of the American people are gravitating towards him so he must be offering something that no other US presidents have. I think he actually has a chance to win. Today, especially in Britain, we have seen a dramatic change in politics within the last few months, so there is every chance Trump could be president. What other past presidential candidates caused as much debate as Trump has? It is certainly an exciting time but definitely a scary prospect. Covering the US election at work is also very interesting and I am learning a lot.

Labour Leadership

Now, politics over here is hardly uneventful these days. This month, we found out who has won the Labour leadership contest (for the second time) at their conference in Liverpool. It was Jeremy Corbyn v Owen Smith – and of course, with a massive majority, Corbyn has won it again, with even more votes than last year. Again, it is an exciting time, especially to be working in politics, because things have dramatically changed. With more than half of his MPs seem to disagree with him on a lot of things, who knows what is next for the party. Will they “unite” as they all keep saying or will the squabbles continue?

Music

The Weeknd Ft. Daft Punk – Starboy

I have never been into The Weeknd, but I came across this song at the gym on Spotify and fell in love with it. Definitely a song to blast out in the car. Love it.
