October Favourites

We cannot believe we are writing October favourites already, it only seems like yesterday we were writing September’s post. To be honest even though this month seems to have flown by we have visited Normandy and Sheffield so its been an exciting month. However some favourites this month are below:

Aussie Bodies- We visited the Lorna Jane active day where they were giving out free samples of the Aussie Bodies Mini ProteinFX Bar, Salted Caramel flavoured . We sampled them and they tasted delicious, sometimes we find that protein products aren’t that great, are high in sugar and leave a horrible after taste. These however are delicious and we have already spied that you can buy them from Boots – we may be stocking up on these and also trying the other flavours – Chocolate Fudge, Rocky Road, Toffee Crisp, Peanut Butter Caramel and Chocolate Raspberry

Jordans Lighter Granola- We recently tweeted a picture of these on our Instagram and we cannot stop raving about this. Rachel doesn’t like nuts and has been hunting for ages for a granola that doesn’t have nuts in (most of them at a minimum will have desiccated coconut). It was a nice surprise when we came across this granola and is tastes delicious. It is perfect for breakfast with some greek yoghurt. There are two flavours to choose from; Strawberry & Blueberry and Raspberry & Apple. So far we have tried the Strawberry & Blueberry one but once finished will try the Raspberry Apple one. As much as we love porridge it’s nice to mix breakfast up a bit and this is a great alternative.


Bomber Jackets- Bomber jackets are all the rage and we cannot get enough of them. They are so versatile and go with anything, you can wear them casual and also glam them up. There are so many bomber jackets around but we have spied some we love in Primark.

Primark Instagram- This leads us nicely onto the Primark Instagram account which we are loving recently. There is so much cool stuff on there and we want it all. We actually have found us screen shotting stuff from their page and then going to the shops and buying it. Some of our faves off their Instagram that we have purchased recently can be seen below 🙂

The Apprentice- The Apprentice is back and we love to hate it. We have been cringing on our sofas every Thursday night watching the candidates make complete idiots of themselves whilst arguing with each other. It’s a guilty pleasure for sure, but we can’t decide if we love it or hate it, but we still continue to watch it! Who do you think will win? At the moment they are all looking pretty useless and no one really stands out yet – we will have to wait and see!

Bake Off- Oh no…..! This month sees the end to Bake Off as we know it! It’s never going to be the same again is it – we hope you enjoyed the last ever episode, were you pleased with who won, was Candice the deserved winner. She did completely nail the final didn’t she! I wonder what will happen with all the bakers now? Wednesday’s will not be the same without Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue.

Zanna Van Dijk- We have been following Zanna on all her social media platforms for a while now and we just can’t get enough. The reason why we have decided to include her in our October favourites is because she has been posting some AMAZING content recently. Zanna is currently travelling (Bali, Malaysia, Cambodia & Vietnam) and has been posting all sorts on her social media including the best places to eat, workouts, what I eat in a day and much more. Zanna is so honest in all that she posts which really is a breath of fresh air.

Livia’s Kitchen- we really wanted to bake a quick, healthy and delicious snack that didn’t need 100’s of ingredients (which most healthy snacks do). We first came across Livia’s kitchen on Deliciously Ella’s website as a guest recipe. Straight away we headed over to Livia’s website and found so many delicious recipes. So far we have made the Blueberry Porridge squares and we have added many more to our ‘what we want to bake’ list.

Now thats all for our October Fave’s, we have had a very fun month indeed! Now Halloween is over we can star getting ready for Christmas right?! We cannot wait to see what November and December will bring!
