October Favourites

I'm sure we say it every month, but October flew by at Gigi Brooks HQ! Perhaps it's because we've been so busy preparing for Christmas or maybe it's just that the days are getting shorter, but we can hardly believe November is upon us.

As usual, we've taken great pleasure in pulling together our favourites from the last four weeks. We've even thrown in a male perspective for you this month, calling on the services of our talented in-house photographer, Ben. So, without further ado, here are a few things that have made us smile in October...

Ali Lovegrove {Operations Director} - 'Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year and I love nothing more than wrapping up warm in a big coat, chunky scarf, skinny jeans and my new favourite boots. Lined with faux shearling, they are easily the comfiest pair I've ever owned. More importantly, they immediately passed the leaf kicking test!'

Ben Tuxworth {In-House Photographer} - 'I’ve recently been taking a break from shaving my upper lip, and as it’s needed some taming to stop it getting too unruly, Captain Fawcett't Moustache Wax has been my saviour! Apart from wanting to look a little more like a gentleman and less like a caveman, there’s nothing better than the rustic aroma of Sandalwood beneath your nose all day for lifting the spirits and feeling fresh as the days get shorter. Even though the pots I have are going to last a long while, I’m eyeing up the gift sets and traditional shaving accessories with Christmas in mind, although I might just treat myself in the meantime!'

Franky Shanahan {Social Media Manager} - 'October didn't feel like much fun for a while in our house as we all came down with a ghastly vomiting bug. After sleepless nights spent caring for the kids and 48hrs battling the germs myself, I was looking a little grey, to say the least. A pamper session was very much needed, so I treated my skin to a quick DIY facial using a sample of Revive's Glycolic Renewal Kit. My complexion was glowing the next day; soft, supple and perfectly smooth. You'd never have guessed how poorly I'd been! I'll be dropping some serious hints in the run up to Christmas in the hope that Santa might put a full size set in my stocking!'
