Current Favourites


I was planning on doing an October favourites, but time has gone by so quickly and it's suddenly already mid November. Honestly, I have no idea where time goes, wasn't last week June? Anyway seeing as It's probably long overdue, here are my October/mid November favourites. 

1. Ollie and Olivia make up brushes 
I've been  using the same eco-tools make up brushes for probably 5 years now (oops), so when I bought these Ollie and Olivia brushes I was very much in need. I love the white and gold combo, and think the italic writing is beautiful (I know i'm a little weird). On top of the beautiful design and amazing blending ability, the whole set was only 15£ from target! 


2. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and Nars sheer glow concealer
I've tried several concealers and always found they never have the right shade for me. The Nars concealer not only blends perfectly and has great coverage but also has a good range of shades. The Benefit roller lash mascara is just perfect in all ways. My biggest pet-peeve is clumpy eyelashes and this mascara is one of the best for curling and separating lashes. 


Although these are current favourites I will unfortunately not be repurchasing either as they aren't completely cruelty-free. 

3. 'Man vs Mind, Everyday Psychology Explained' by Daniel C Richardson
If you're interested in Psychology or how the brain works this is the perfect book. I picked this up in London and read the whole thing on the 2 hour train ride to Oxford to visit my friend. It can sound a bit daunting if you've never read any Psychology books before, but it's simple and easy to understand. Richardson explains things in a way that anyone could understand. There are also some stellar drawings and funny anecdotes. 


4. Thoughts and Reflections, a line a day journal
Basically just a question a day for 4 years. I've found it quite a calming and reflective task to do at the end of the day. Plus I love looking back at things I used to like doing/reading/wearing. Also can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful it is... 


5. New Scientist October edition
I love reading about new discoveries and whats going on in the world from a scientific perspective. While I found this whole magazine interesting, I especially enjoyed the article entitled "In what? we trust" which explained the cognitive mechanisms behind trust. If you like this sort of thing I would definitely recommend getting a copy, or if you even if you don't get one anyway (trust me, it'll make you sound pretty damn smart). 


What have you been loving recently?

Also I just got twitter. I'm a major technology noob so I don't know how to use it, but if you want to follow me it's @Meera_ltt . (I'll probably follow you back)

  2. That journal is absolutely gorgeous! <3 I love the idea of being able to reflect over the past 4 years and see how things have changed. Thank you for the book recommendation too - that sounds like my kinda book. I love learning about how the mind works. Oh, and New Scientist is so interesting! I’m studying a MSc in Science so there is always something in there that catches my attention. Great post! Have a lovely weekend <3 xx

  13. All of your picks seems so neat! I have been seeing Man vs. Mind float around the blogosphere with wonderful reviews. My curiosity is increasing about it so I guess I need to get myself a copy!
