Loving Right Now...








I was going to round up October with the things I'm loving right now but I was on a tight schedule, so here they are starting off November, shall we...

First of all, I decided to include a book, a best-seller I got last month and have really enjoyed reading... It's by Daniel Kahneman, a psychologist and winner of 2012 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences... The book is called Thinking, Fast and Slow... It's a fantastic book, but also pretty intense in terms of being densely packed with info, you actually need to think a lot when reading it... But it's not written for scientists, it's still readable and actually pretty fun... I had to take a break half way through though, and friends of mine who also were reading it said it's one of the best books they have ever read but also took breaks... Let me just say that reading Vogue after Thinking, Fast and Slow becomes a totally different experience... Nuff said... 

That little beaded Matreshka [aka Russian doll] bracelet I have been wearing non stop through October, you can actually see it in most of my look pics, I got it at River Island for like three quid but I love wearing it with my chunky gold Michael Kors watch, it adds a nice little fun element... Elie Saab, if you read my blog frequently you will know how much I have been enjoying this beautifully sensual fragrance lately, if not check out these features: The Search for the Perfect Fragrance... + Fragrance & Journalism: Each to their Own...

The other two new additions are Deborah Lippmann Forget You glitter nail lacquer, which I have used to create my Halloween inspired nails, you can check it out by clicking here... It's such a fun and festive shade, which is also just perfect for the party season coming up! It's part of the current line and makes a great stocking-filler, if you want to fill up your Christmas stocking with it it's available exclusively at House of Fraser Stores... And the other addition is Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Busy Signal, which is a very pretty chocolate bronze... Makes blue eyes pop! A warm autumnal look coming soon...

And finally two lip products as this is the season for being good to your lips! I have been using Nuxe Nutri-Protecting Lip Care... It's a flattering nude, my lips but better shade - for more info and swatches just click here... And last but by no means least, when I was going through my handbag collection I found Cowshed Lippy Cow Natural Lip Balm... It was a happy occasion as it was gone missing for a while and I had no idea where it was... Some of the ingredients are essential oils of linden blossom, rose geranium and ylang ylang... It doesn't last much on the lips as it's very light and liquid but I am absolutely addicted to the scent and taste, it shoots me right back to the beautiful snowed in Cowshed weekend, the crackling fireplace, the stunning landscape...  

Few years ago I stayed at the award-wining Babington House where the Cowshed Spa was at, in Gloucestershire... I had a few great treatments done, my favourite was the mud treatment... The Mud Room is specifically designed for this treatment, I was provided with I think four or five different types of mud, each of them was intended for a specific part of your body, so I got all muddy and sat there drinking water, then it got steamy and the automated shower went on... And then you put on the proper lux heavy hooded-bathrobe and sit in front of the fire having a cup of tea... Uhh heavily! I was left feeling super relaxed after that treatment, not to mention the super smooth baby skin... Anyways on each trip to the Spa I was stocking up on the products, I still have the hand cream, and few of the massaging oils, they all have a lovely natural herbal scent... And that's how I discovered Cowshed...

LOVE
