August, September and October Favourites

Firstly, apologies for not uploading an August or September Favourites post. Favourites posts are a lot more time-consuming than they appear and I was too busy with overtime at work and seeing friends to sit down and properly write a Favourites post until now. However, this does mean that you get three months worth of Favourites so take a seat with a hot cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!

    • I absolutely adore Monica. I think her and Kalyn Nicholson are my two favourite YouTubers at the moment. I love that she is so real in her videos and she never pretends to have her life together like other YouTubers (case in point, her recent video containing all her parking tickets!). xx
