LIKES & LOVES | SEPTEMBER 2020

September has meant alot about getting back into a routine.  Blake has been too exhausted for us to do much at the weekends. By Friday school has wiped him and all he wants to do is cuddle up on the sofa. I'm starting to get more into a routine again to get housework and errands done giving me enough time to myself each day whilst Blake is in school.  

I've not really brought much this month but I have started on Birthday/Christmas shopping for presents for Blake which I've currently hidden in the attic but I've a few things I've liked and loved this month.

The Handmaid's Tale
I read the book last year and had been wanting to see the series. When I realised it was on Prime I slowly started making my way through episodes this month. I've not watched anything else as I've been mainly all about my books this month but the Handmaid's Tale I've been making time for. I'm enjoying it much more than the book and think its because I can understand a bit more about what is going on.


Kind Natured Sea Minerals & Mint Foot Scub
I've had quite dry and rough skin recently especially on my feet so I opted to try this foot scub which not only smells refreshing but makes my feet feel much better after use.


St Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask
Sticking with a the dry skin theme I like to use a facial scrub once a week. As I needed a new one I opted to try out this St Ives one. I've not used St Ives in years and used to use the apricot scrub. I definitely prefer the smell of this one and it works well at making my face feel refreshed and softer after. 

Comfort Creations Strawberry and Lily
Bit of a random item but I've been trying different comfort creations fabric conditioner scents. So far we've used Strawberry and Lily, Waterlily and Lime and last of all Honeysuckle and Sandalwood. Out of the 3 scents my favourite is the Strawberry and Lime. Once I've used up the other two I'll definitely be purchasing more of this one. I like that the scent really does last.
Quote Hanging Signs 
I picked up two quote hanging signs that I spotted in two local charity shops recently. The All you need is love one was only 99p and the Keep your face to the sunshine and happiness will bloom within was £1.50. They are now hanging up in our dining room above our dining table.


Rainbows
I noticed one day we had quite a bit of rain even though it was sunny so decided to pop outside and spotted a beautiful rainbow from our garden over the houses behind us.


Autumn is coming
The weather has been getting more autumnal and we've noticed that the leaves are starting to fall more from the trees in pretty colours. Blake has loved walking and running through them hearing the crunchy sound that they make.


Geomags confetti set
I wrote a review recently on the set we had been sent which you can read here. We've been loving spending time together making different shapes etc.
