October Favourites

I've been meaning to write this post for a while now but here it is at last, my October favourites! Here are some of the things that I've been loving in the past month, (how fast are these months passing by?!)
So here it is...

The photography in this post has been done by Saida from (who has a giveaway over on her blog at the minute) so go and check it out!

L'oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint - £9.99 from Boots, you can also read more about this foundation from my review here.

L'oreal Nutri-Gloss Light Shampoo - £2.99 from Boots and it smells so good!

Clean and Clear Exfoliating Daily Wash - £1.99 from Boots and I love that it's oil free too!

I've been using this air freshener for quite a while now because I love Christmas and it smells so nice! Mulled Wine and Cinnamon apple is the perfect scent to get you in the festive mood, you can get it from shops on the high street such as Wilkinson's and Supermarkets.

Impulse Temptation body spray - £1.99 from Boots. I think has to be one of my favourites from the impulse body sprays. It states that it's 'new' although I remember having this one years and years ago with a slightly different design so maybe they've brought it back (that's if it ever left) because it smells so nice!

Now this little sample is amazing! It's from Lush Cosmetics and I had it sent to me when I'd ordered a face mask from them. It's the 'Let the good times roll' cleanser available here (100g £6.35). I wasn't expecting this at all in its tiny packaging and because it's so small I thought I'd only be getting one use out of it but I was wrong. You only need a tiny bit of this cleanser and it goes a long way, I think I might have to purchase the full size after trying this out, maybe that's why they sneakily sent me it!

What's to come?

Here's a sneak peak of what's coming up on Not Just A Curl. I've been so busy with uni lately that I haven't had time to write any posts but I'll be back very soon!

25 things to do before Christmas

Hello Everyone!
Now that it's November I thought it would be an acceptable time to post a '25 things to do before Christmas' post. This is my own personalised list of things that I aim/want to do before the old guy in the red suit comes to visit us.. I probably won't get to do everything that's on this list but I'll sure try!

Sooooo Christmasy - image available here
1. Pass all of my uni work.
2. Finish my CV for my course (it's getting marked over Christmas anyway!).
3. Do some volunteering.
4. Properly start my Christmas Shopping.
5. Watch lots of Christmas films.
6. Get to 60 bloglovin followers.
7. Finally get to 2,000 blogger views.
8. Buy my Christmas cards.
9. Drink some lovely mulled wine.
10. Go to a Christmas market.
11. Do some Christmas baking.

21. Visit some family when I go home.
