This months Birchbox theme is 'What's your sign?' At Birchbox they created a few different box designs around your astrological sign. You could get one of 4 designs - Water, Fire, Air, Earth. The box isn't just a basic Birchbox either it is now a handy little draw which I think is way better as they are great for stashing away your beauty products. This months astrological box also glows in the dark!

As soon as Autumn/ Winter draws in, like most, I steer towards the rich earthy, berry, warm tones on my face. These three make up items from MUD - Make-up Designory just scream Autumn to me.
MUD is quite a new brand to me, I wasn't that familiar with it. But I do love trying out new make-up, as you never know when you will find that hidden gem of a product.

It's been a while since my last favourites post, mainly because i have been testing out some new products (mainly skincare), which i like to give a good go before i give my thoughts.This favourites post may seem skincare heavy, but that's because i have been struggling with my skin lately. I had my contraceptive implant changed recently, and my face just broke out awfully and really got me down.
So i decided to change up my skincare a bit on products that could help, and i have found some right gems! Hallelujah!

For those of you that don't know what a Degustabox is, it's a monthly food subscription service where they send a big box full of new and exciting food / drinks for you to try, and the best part is it's all a surprise! It is a great way of discovering new brands, and foods you wouldn't have necessarily thought of trying. I have discovered quite a few new brands this way.
The September box beat last months one but not as good as some I've had to be honest. I do like the amount of health foods included in this one though.

Personally, I don't think you can beat nice, neatly manicured nails. Being a mum of two I sometimes find it hard to fit in time for a manicure, but now I can do it all easily from the comfort of my own home. I have tried an at home gel kit before and reviewed it here on my blog and that wasn't good at all, the manicure didn't even last a day before chipping off so I'm hoping that Sensationail being a well known, and loved by many brand I'm hoping this is the system for me. That's the whole point to these at home gel systems anyway, glossy nails that last longer than regular polish - the only down side is having to purchase all new gel polishes to go with it right? ....Wrong, because the geniuses at Senstionail have designed a new Polish to Gel kit where you can use your regular polish and mix it into a gel... hurray money saved!

I have been a fan of the La Roche-Posay original Effaclar Duo for years now and constantly re-purchase. It works wonders on blemish prone skin like mine. It helps reduce the appearance of scaring, prevents breakouts and unclogs pores. Plus you can't really go wrong with good ol' French Pharmacy skin care can you?
Recently I was offered a chance to review the new Effaclar Duo (+) Unifiant, which has the same amazing qualities as the original version we all know and love, but with added coverage.
Perfect for those no makeup-makeup days.

This months Degustabox included a few new brands this month, some I have already had in previous boxes such as the Geeta's pastes & chutney and the Get More Vitamins Drink. The August box didn't quite blow me away like last months did ( Review here ) that one was pretty amazing.
