October Favourites

It’s time. Again. How time flies, and all that. Let’s go.

T2 French Earl Grey Loose Tea
I like (intentionally) warm drinks. They’re great, especially tea – all kinds of it! Except Earl Grey, because it tastes like latex to me. I’ve tried lots of brands to no avail, but then I found T2’s twist. Why it’s French, I’ll never know because it tastes like black tea with a bunch of tropical fruit chucked in, and I love it so much.

Ethique Frizz Wrangler Solid Shampoo
Yep, mentioning that rad zero-waste company again. They sent me a sample of this shampoo with the cool limited edition shaving soap I bought my dad for Father’s Day, and when I ran out of my regular bar I tried it.. holy christmas, my hair has never been as soft and manageable as it is now. Works brilliantly with my conditioner bar, too (the Guardian, in case you were wondering).

The Prettiest Darn Phone Case That Ever Was
I found it on Etsy at 3am on a Saturday, and bought it because it was only $25 including shipping (ish) and it’s cool. It arrived the following Tuesday and I am mega stoked. There’s heaps of different flower combinations and whatnot, too – have a look if you like.

LUSH Bath Bombs
I am trying to take more baths because they are good for reducing anxiety, making me read more books and forcing me to be away from technology for a bit (a godsend for self-employed idiots like me). I don’t like being able to see myself in the water, so I’ve been dropping way too much money on things that make the water smell and look nice. I’m finding LUSH ones give me the best result. Sploosh – fizz fizz fizz. Yay.

Davines Authentic Moisturising Balm
I still have no clue how to pronounce the brand, but this stuff is amazing. It’s supposed to be able to be used for body, face and hair but I’ve been using it as a body moisturiser. I’ve noticed that it can be hard to spread over the skin sometimes, which I suspect is due to the properties that lend it to multi-use. The scent is herby-lavender-rosey-ey and it’s really really enjoyable. It moisturises well without leaving a greasy film and/or reacting to my skin. There’s no way in hell I’m putting that much fragrance near my face, but I might try it on my hair sometime soon.
