September Favourites 

September has come and gone, I feel like this year has flown by. What happened to January 2017? I’m bringing back the monthly favourites because they’re my all time favourite posts to read and I love sharing with you guys what I’ve been enjoying throughout the month. I’ve got some fantastic new things to share with you that I have been loving during September! 

Firstly, Rimmel released some liquid lipsticks that I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on! My favourite is the shade coral sass which is essentially an orange toned red shade which I absolutely love on myself. It’s kind of a summery shade but to be honest, I’ll still be wearing throughout the autumn/winter months. They’re so incredibly light weight and dry super fast without making your lips feel dry and chapped. 

Converse are a statement shoe in my wardrobe and I especially love them for nights out since they are so comfortable but also can make any outfit look fab. Whether you’re dressing down or dressing up, converse just don’t seem to make an outfit look bad. I bought a white pair (I’m silly, I know I’ll get them dirty eventually) and I’ve been living in them. If you’re a student like I am, you can get 10% off when you purchase any item from schuch which is where I bought mine from. 


This will be the second time I’ve mentioned this jacket on my blog but I just can’t help it. I purchased a suede biker jacket from New Look last month and I honestly thought it was the biggest mistake and that I wouldn’t ever wear it since I didn’t know how to dress it. However, I was wrong and this jacket as become my absolute go to! I’ve been loving it. I’ll wear it with a pair of jeans, boots and a white top or even with a skirt, cami and converse for nights out. It’s become a statement jacket that I couldn’t live without. 

Since moving back to uni green tea is all I drink (other than wine..). My current favourites are mint, along with apple and cucumber! They’re so refreshing to drink and really help to detox your body, especially after a heavy weekend of drinking. 

I’ve been regularly going to the gym to workout and I never ever thought I would enjoy going but I just love how it’s been making me feel. I’m so much more energetic and lively now I’ve been regularly working out! An hour a day in the gym and a 15 minute session of yoga really does make the world of difference. I’m a totally different person! Honestly, I don’t think I could stop going now. I picked up a big at the end of the month and actually felt so guilty for not going to the gym! Although I knew my body needed a rest so that’s what I did.

I finally watched Wonder Woman for the first time and I’ve not enjoyed a film more this year! She was so badass, empowering and bloody gorgeous! The film really was one of the best I’ve seen this year and I can’t wait to watch her in Justice League.

Lastly, the TV show Victoria returned for season 2 and I have been obsessed! I really enjoyed season 1 and I anticipated the return for season 2 and it was totally worth the wait. I love the drama and the history of the show. It really makes you think about the way their lives are as a royal family. 

These are my September favourites! Let me know some of yours in the comments and maybe I’ll try them out during October.

TOP 5 TV SERIES

I’ve surprised myself by not ever posting and sharing my favourite TV shows… I’ve been blogging for nearly a year and I’ve never shared these with you?! WEIRD.

I’m guilty of spending hours of my life binge watching TV series and eating snacks.. more than once a week and I don’t feel bad about it if I’m honest. I find it is such a relaxing thing to do and I’ll always do this when I’m at my most stressed or in the mood to procrastinate. I definitely have my go to shows that I always lean towards more than others and I thought I would share with you guys some of my favourite shows and maybe give you some new TV to watch. Here we go! I hope you guys enjoy. 

#1 One Tree Hill has always been a favourite and I love going back to watch it when I’m feeling down. I especially enjoy seasons 4-9, not really sure why I just enjoy those seasons more than others. I love the story lines and how different each character are in comparison to each other. 

#2 Gossip Girl is almost everybody’s favourite, who doesn’t love a bit of Chuck and Blair lovin’? I know I do! I really enjoy watching the fun relationship between Chuck and Blair and especially the drama they go through.

#3 The Vampire Diaries has been one of my favourites for so long and now it’s finished forever I haven’t really known what to do with myself. It’s so dramatic.. (can you see the theme of my faves?) and I love the little myths and story behind each character. I bloody love me some Salvator brothers. 

#4 Brooklyn Nine-Nine is so bloody good and funny! It’s incredibly easy to watch and I continue to enjoy each episode regardless of how many times I’ve seen it. 

#5 F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Who doesn’t love this show?! I KNOW I DOOOO! Matt and I watch this show on repeat and I find it’s the best thing to watch when I’m sleepy and it always manages to cheer me up. 

All of these shows, but F.R.I.E.N.D.S are on Netflix and I couldn’t be without my subscription to Netflix. Let me know some of your faves so I can give them a watch. 

With love, Beth x 

Review: Riverdale

Riverdale has been the hype recently and along with so many other’s, I watched it. I found out that it was going to be a newly released show last November and without a doubt, I knew I would watch it. I crave cheesy, drama filled, romantic TV shows, I cant help myself. So, I watched the trailer, forgot about it and then it began in January. So, season 1 came and passed and after spending 13 episodes watching it, I can finally give you my full review on this show. 

Is it worth the watch? I think so. If I’m totally honest, I was more interested in the story line of Jughead, Archie, Veronica and Betty than the murder of Jason Blossom, although I understood the point of Jason’s story line. However, as a show I think it’s brilliant and definitely could replace my love for The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf (there isn’t any supernatural behaviour in Riverdale though).  

It took me 4 episodes to actually enjoy the show. That’s mainly because it was only introducing the character’s and setting the plot though. So nothing to do with the show exactly as the introduction is totally necessary. I do have favourites in Riverdale and my goodness, I really do look forward to seeing Cole Sprouse every single week. He play’s Jughead so well and has definitely drifted from his earlier work on Disney Channel. He’s fantastic as an actor and absolutely gorgeous. Where can I get one? Or two?


I’m also incredibly interested in the Cooper family, they just seem to have so many secrets and I want to know them all. However, Betty definitely seems like a totally different person in comparison to her parents. 

I particularly love this 50s vibe that is has. I didn’t quite understand it at first, then found out that it’s because the comics were set in this time and just love that the show has stuck to this. The vibe is fantastic, the scenes are excellent and the cast couldn’t be any better.

I can see the next season being even better than the first and it’s been said that season 2 will have 22 episodes rather than 13! Wahoo. I thoroughly enjoyed this show and I can’t wait to see what hold’s for Jughead and Betty and to also finally see what drama Veronica’s dad brings to the town.
