September Love List

I've been trying to get my blogging mojo back for a while, but I've just not found the motivation or inspiration. That all changed when I watched Victoria from In The Frow's new video. Today she posted her 'September Love List' and I loved it! Like a favourites video, with more structure and a bit more personal. I like that it's not beauty related, if you have read my last post then you'll know that I wanted to branch out a bit and this format seemed perfect! She started it back in August I think, but that one snuck by me. She's done them mid-month and they're just things that she's been loving for the last 4 weeks or so. I don't watch that much YouTube anymore but I really like Victoria, she seems really nice and down to earth so definitely go and watch her video.

What I Watched
I have been far too obsessed with House MD on Netflix. It's about a group of Doctors, focusing particularly on a team of diagnosticians. Basically the people you'd want to see if you didn't know what the heck was wrong with you. Hugh Laurie has become an addiction. I don't know what it is about him! His character is negative, a tad sadistic, drug addict, yet so frigging hot! I've fell in love with him, he's a messed up sweetheart. I CAN CHANGE HIM. 

What I Snapped
I went to the reopening of Cocktail Cosmetics on Sutton Coldfield High St. They used to be located in the Custard Factory in Birmingham and I loved it there, but this store is bigger and better! I popped this picture of a few of my favourite parts of the shop up on Instagram. They stock a lot of hard to get brands and it's even better because you can see and swatch before you buy. The owner are so nice too! 

Who I Loved
Beth from Beauty In Beta is babe and I think everyone knows this. She's one of the kindest people in Twitter and life in general, she's never to busy to help anyone. I've been lucky enough to meet her a couple of times and my love for her just grows stronger! I also get to see her in a few weeks and the excitement is real. She's just starting an exiting new venture called The Olive Foxes with the lovely Suzy. I am so excited to see what they have to come. Good luck with it, Ladies!

What I Wore
I've been a little obsessed with this lip combo! It's fun yet wearable and I've had so many compliments on it! It's Mac Soar lipliner, Colour Pop Lippie Stix in Tootsi and a bit of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid lipstick in Requiem on the centre. I repeat, OBSESSED. 

What I Did
I joined Slimming World a month ago which has completely changed my life already. I have lost 23 and a half pound, from pure determination and killing myself at the gym. I'm working out 3/4 times a week and actually enjoying it. Being able to run on the treadmill and feel comfortable is a wonderful thing for me. I've got a new mindset because of it. I've become a lot more positive and I really hope it lasts. 

What I Ate
London. Why you give such good food, huh? A few weeks ago I went to The Diner in Covent Garden at it was a pure delight. Sarah and I couldn't decide what to have so we split two dishes. Best choice we've ever made. We had poached eggs and avocados on sourdough and red velvet pancakes. Food coma all round. I think it was April that recommended the place and for that, I am eternally grateful. It was probably the nicest sourdough I've ever had and pancakes are just FIT. I totally recommend this place, it was quite reasonably priced as well for London.

What I Drank
I am a total tea freak! In my 24 years of LIFE I've loved tea and hated coffee but things are changing people! It all started with Starbucks bringing back their iconic autumnal Pumpkin Spice Latte, I randomly thought I'd try it and absolutely loved it! I got a little excited and ordered a Hazelnut Latte at a local cafe, again it was love. Turns out I bloody love a milky flavoured coffee, who knew? I feel like my horizons expanding as I speak.

Where I Went
Vanessa, Sarah and I trundled off to Solihull with our makeup cases under our arms and turned up on Liz's doorstep (she knew we were coming, I think). She'd put on a lovely spread, such a babe. We basically spent our evening sipping Prosecco/Ribena, eating, chatting, laughing and playing with makeup. Plus I made a cookie cream pie which was spesh. Pretty much a dream night. We spread out our makeup across Lizs dining table and it was pure chaos, but the best kind. We all came away with huge shopping lists and foundation streaks from the tears of laughter. These are my people.

What I Heard
Heres just a few songs I've been loving recently.

What I Used
I'm a bit late to the whole Snapchat thing but I'm totally into it now! My username is aimeejmaguire CHEEKY PLUG. Some of my faves on there are Stacey: stadybelle (amazing makeup and Dubai shots), Em: mypaleskinblog (loving seeing Em's personality), Nikkie: nikkietutorials (best makeup artist ever) and Callie: callietlondon (her and her fiancee are hilarious). 

I hope you liked this post and I'm sorry for the dodgy iPhone photos!
