September Favourites - Paperchase, Clipper Tea & The Purge...

There were quite a few things I wanted to include this month but I've wittled it down to a few films and some beauty, homeware and food bits. I could talk about some of these for days!
Brief Encounters - We recorded this when it was on ITV last month and but only got round to watching it a few weeks ago, meaning we had all 6 episodes to catch up on. It's about 4 women in the 1980s who become Ann Summers saleswomen and we find out about all the different things going on in their personal lives. I loved every episode, I think one night we got through 3 and then a few days later we watched the rest, there was just so much drama but it was also really funny and I was so hoping that things would work out for everyone. I really hope they do another series of this but it did seem like everything sort of tied together at the end so i'm not sure where they would take it.

Clipper Tea Lime and Ginger - This came in our August Degustabox, which is a monthly food subscription box, and as a big fan of Clipper Teas anyway we were really excited to try this. It did not disappoint, we both love it! This would be a good one to drink if you're a bit under the weather or have a cold, the ginger really helps and the lime just adds something extra. Definitely one i'll go out and buy when we've ran out.

The Purge Election Year - I feel like I have been waiting to see this for so long! I love the first and second Purge films and I had hoped that this one was going to be just as good, and it really was! There was just as much going on in this one as there was in previous films and it was so tense all the way through. The thing about the Purge films is that they feel so real, it is possible that something as mental as this could happen one day so I think that makes it even scarier when you're watching.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates - We like to get the most out of our unlimited cards so we went to see this about 15 minutes after The Purge. It did look funny from the trailer but we weren't expecting too much, but I was so wrong, I absolutely loved it! I was laughing all the way through and it's not often a film is that funny for it to just keep flowing for the full duration, but I thought it was so good. Adam DeVine is hilarious in it as he is in most things, I love him in Pitch Perfect and Modern Family so I thought he would be funny in this too.

Paperchase Prints - I mentioned in my last favourites I had bought some prints for a wall in the bedroom so I could make a proper photo wall and this month I picked up a few postcards from Paperchase to go on it aswell. They're only small so only about 70p each and I think they look great on the wall with photos and other prints, if you want to see how the photo wall turned out, I have post all about it here. I had to get the bear one just because I love bears and the map of London because its one of my favourite places and I had a few other London postcards to put up aswell. I think i'm going to go back and get a few more as they had so many to choose from.

Essie Winter Nail Set - I have a soap and glory case full of nail polishes but I never feel like I have enough, so when I got paid I had a quick look on Amazon and found some great Essie deals. They had the Christmas Quad set for around £5.95 which is an amazing deal as you wouldn't even get one bottle that cheap, let alone 4, and the whole thing is worth £24.99, and that's its price at Boots at the moment. The colours are gorgeous and all of them are so perfect for the run up to christmas, which I am literally counting down the days for! It has Mademoiselle, Chinchilly, Toggle To The Top and Belugaria. The price has gone up now to £14.29 but to be honest that's still a pretty good deal and it arrived in perfect condition too. It could be a great present for someone for Christmas!
