September Favourites

Salted Caramel Fudge Kit Kat Chunky

Oh lordy! This month I attended a very special lunch with Kit Kat Chunky, it was for the launch of their new Salted Caramel Fudge flavour and honestly, I can’t say enough good things about them. I’m HOOKED! They are SO good, I would almost be tempted to say they are even better than their legendary peanut butter kitkat chunky’s which they released a few years ago. I have about 10 of these in my kitchen already and they are TOO GOOD. Do yourself a favour and go try them, tweet me your appreciation!

kiehls dog grooming

Kiehl’s Cuddly Coat Treats For Gordon

This month the kind folks at Kiehl’s sent me a collection of beautiful products for little Gordon! They are special dog grooming treats which will keep Gordon looking good, smelling great and feeling like the pampered pup that he is! Now our whole family can enjoy Kiehl’s and that makes me VERY happy! Thank you Kiehl’s and for all the doggy parents out there, keep an eye out for these Gordon-approved grooming products! Oh and Gordon is a lab so he has short hair, so I really love the cleansing spritz for him!

bumble and bumble hair cair

Bumble & Bumble Human Hair Treats

And for me… I have a huge bundle of my favourite Bumble & Bumble hair treats! My favourite b&b products will forever be the Sea Spray collection, it makes my hair look thick and full and beachy in a good way… it’s kinda the instagram v reality hair situation; this gives you the instagram version of beach hair, not the ratty beehive reality version!


Burt’s Bees Chai Tea Lipbalm

I got sent this Burt’s Bees Chai Tea lip balm in the post the other day and I think it might be my FAVE EVER Burt’s Bees lip balm. It’s chai tea flavour, it’s sweet and delicious and of course, super hydrating. love it! I’m not sure if it’s limited edition or not, but if it is, I suggest you hunt one down ASAP because it’s SO nice! PS. It’s not on the Burt’s Bees website, but it is on FeelUnique.

REN Atlantic Kelp And Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Wash

Ren Atlantic Kelp

Forever one of my favourite body care ranges… the Ren Atlantic Kelp collection is PHENOMENAL! It’s SO good! It smells like every incredible spa you have ever stepped into and there is a shower gel, bath oil and hand wash in the collection. I have all three and I LOVE them! This is the shower gel and it gets a special shout out because the packaging is made from recycled ocean plastic and even the pump is made entirely of ocean plastic! That’s right! no rubber, no metal springs… all plastic and all doing good for the world! I have so much love for Ren at the best of times, but this range is my absolute favourite!!

my VQ radio and ultimate ears speaker


This month I have been listening to the podcasts Teachers Pet, Doctor Death and Generation Why. All are GREAT and totally worth subscribing to, just so you know! I’ve also subscribed to LOADS of new podcasts, so I’m hoping pretty soon I will be able to bring you a whole new edit of amazing listening! However, as good as all those podcasts are… the one I have been OBSESSED with recently is Uncover: Escaping NXIVM. It’s SO good!!!! All about a cult, I dunno if you remember a few years ago an actress from Smallville was in news because she was part of a cult, well, that’s the one! It’s SO good!!!

VQ Black Friday Deal monty radio in wood vintage style retroVQ Black Friday Deal monty radio in wood vintage style retro


I’m actually considering cancelling my Netflix subscription because since we got Gordon, I have barely watched any TV. Instead, we just sit in the living room and play with little Gordon every night! The ONLY thing I have watched recently has been Amazing Interiors (on Netflix). It’s kinda amazing. I really need to up my interiors game!


Olivia Burton Shop Opening Party

This month I went to the oh-so-beautiful Olivia Burton Shop Opening Party! It was so much fun! Literally, all the eye candy you can imagine, as well as ALL the wrist candy as you would expect! it was stunning! Literally every single spot was an instagram photo waiting to happen and not only that, I saw my friend Charlotte from Betty Magazine there, who I haven’t seen since she moved from Margate to Lincoln, so that was a real treat too! Make sure you head to the Olivia Burton Shop when you are next in Covent Garden, it’s BEAUTIFUL!

Elizabeth & James 'Nirvana Rose' Perfume

Elizabeth & James ‘Nirvana Rose’ Perfume

I’ve been love, love, loving Elizabeth & James Nirvana Rose Perfume recently! It’s rose-based, which I adore, but it’s got this real edgy, cool, Mary Kate & Ashley Olson fabulousness. SO good! I’m so obsessed! It’s a stunning mix of heart of a deep, dark velvety rose with more delicate notes of rose de mai, fresh geranium, which has quite a tradition feel and vetiver which is dryer, grassier and a little more masculine. LOVE!

One Year Roses alternative text

One Year Roses

A few weeks ago I treated myself to some One Year Roses and I’m SO glad I did! They are a fairly hefty investment, but they last for SO long making them a great long-term buy! I know a LOT of people have been buying these just for instagram, but I honestly enjoy them on a day-to-day basis because they look so darn pretty!!!

Soap & Glory 'Call Of Fruity' Collection boots

Soap & Glory ‘Call Of Fruity’ Collection

This month saw Soap & Glory release their new fragrance collection, Call Of Fruity! It’s so fun and summery and tropical and of course… it’s filled with ALL the fun puns! No really, it’s puns-a-plenty in a way that makes me SO jealous of their skillz. Look out for the collection at Boots and I would recommend the shower gel and coconut oil infused body oil! So. Much. Fun!

teapigs tea fashion for lunch blog

Teapigs Peppermint Tea

This month, I’m all about the classic Teapigs Peppermint Tea. I mean, come on! It’s just SO good!!! In fact, I’ve been enjoying it so much, I have been sharing the love! I sent a box to a blogger friend, I gave another box to my BFF, I just really want everyone to love Teapigs as much as I do! Oh and if you want some teapigs for yourself, just head over to the teapigs website and use the discount code ‘FASHIONFORLUNCH20’ at checkout for 20% off. Thank me later!

ray ban sunglasses sunglasses shop

New Glasses

Ta da!!!! Look who got new glasses! They are Ray-Bans and I LOVE them!!! When I was 13 I was at a make up counter and the b*tch serving me told me I had small eyes and I have NEVER forgotten it! It’s the reason I wear sunglasses as much as I do, it’s also the reason I apply winged eyeliner and yes… it’s the reason I wear winged eyeliner WITH glasses. It’s all a crazy attempt to make my eyes appear bigger! Sad but true! On that note, can we please remember that making passing comments about other peoples appearances is NOT cool! A HUGE thank you to Glasses Direct for making my dream specs a reality!

Smashbox + Vlada ‘Petal Metal’ Collection eyeshadow palette

Smashbox X Vlada Eyeshadow Palette

I’m SO in love with this Smashbox X Vlada eyeshadow palette that I had to share it again. It’s only a tiny palette, but honestly, it’s all I need and it’s the most dreamy selection of rose gold, nude and warm tones. Perfect to pair with winged eyeliner and just a generally dreamy consistency on my eyelids (that’s code for ‘It doesn’t sit in my wrinkles and give me weird extra creases’). I’m actually shocked it’s not already sold out, I’m kinda tempted to buy a second version of it, because it’s stunning!

mantal piece bedroom styling


I’m gonna end it here with a shot of Gordon hanging out on my new Leesa Mattress… isn’t he a dream? Oh and if you wanna read all about my new Leesa Mattress, click the link!

I hope you enjoyed my September favourite! Have a lovely month!
