October Favourites


Another month bites the dust!  My October was a mix of Autumn excitement followed by two weeks of inevitable coughing and sneezing.  I feel like I’m finally through the worst of it now, and just in time for November – which is always a super busy month in Casa Cwtch; four birthdays (including my own!), Nanowrimo, and then the big Christmas build-up.  Anyway, despite being a snotty, spluttering mess for most of October, it’s still my favourite time of year 🙂


I didn’t shop much in October other than picking up a few Christmas and Birthday presents, but it did finally get cold enough to start wearing my new grey coat from Primark.  It was cheap as chips and I love it!  I’m looking forward to wrapping up this month and cracking into my massive scarf collection.


I feel like it’s been a quiet month for TV.  I finally got around to watching Stranger Things and – sorry! – I love all the 80s pop culture, and I kind of like it… but, I don’t get the hype.  I will persevere, but maybe I set my bar too high?  Sunny and I started watching Tin Star with Tim Roth; he hated it (he thought it was too dark and couldn’t stand the music), I LOVED it.  Other TV shows include Outlander (which continues to please – it’s just so beautiful to look at!), Mr Robot, and of course, GBBO.


As well as making Halloween Doooooonuts, Salted Caramel Macarons, and these Pumpkin Traybake Cakes – I also became obsessed with Cadbury Roses Cake Bars which come in Strawberry Cream (my fave!) and Orange Cream.



I didn’t get out much during October because – like I said – I caught the lurgy, but top of the pops this month of course goes to the new Oliver Bonas store which opened up on The Hayes.  I wanted to buy everything! 🙂

What have you been enjoying this October?  Have a great weekend everyone!  x

I caught a dreadful cold as well this October and your guide was an absolute godsend.

I’m in the same boat with stranger things, I don’t know if i’ll enjoy it as much as the hype – I think I need to just watch it for myself and make up my own mind!

Hope you have an absolutely wonderful birthday and celebrate with lots of booze! xx
