    1. A striped cotton jumper that is warm, but light enough for autumn sunshine.

    Promising review: "Great fit. Flattering length. Wish there were more colours because I would definitely fill up my winter wardrobe! I can't wear synthetic material or wool. It is very difficult to find pure cotton especially warm cotton. Excellent!!" – Rosie63

    2. A fidget toy that is a godsend for anyone who wants to stop biting their nails.

    Promising review: "I realized I would bite my nails when I was distracted or bored, especially in class. Then it occurred to me that I just need something to keep my hands busy, so I ordered a fidget cube on amazon. Best $4 I've ever spent! I started using it around the beginning of the year and I've only "relapsed" once. It also helps to keep my nails nice, so I file them regularly and I paint them myself. Might not be as nice as a professional manicure, but it's definitely cheaper, and I'm less likely to pick the nail polish off if I put it on myself." – angelnyc

    3. A darling kitty compact that will save you from a shiny nose.

    Promising review: "I love this, I've bought it twice now! It's super mattifying and lasting! You can really build up coverage too if you want to and it doesn't make you look cakey. The packaging is also super cute and sturdy. The one that has been in my bag for months is still in perfect condition. I also really like the cushion applicator, it's lovely and soft and spreads product evenly." – Hikari

    4. These sweat-wicking leggings that stay up during squats, and are true to size., Amazon

    Promising review: "Fabric is very durable, strong, soft and not at all see through, even in squats - but also sweat-wicking and definetely no over heating in these either.

    These sit on the waist, over your belly button, and high coverage at the back for your butt too! These didn't budge at ALL during my training which is a first really - from £9 emergency leggings, to £30 midrange brands - oh; and no camel toe, ladies!

    Length and overall fit is spot on; I have very thick thighs, about a UK 16 on the thighs and hips, UK 12 on the waist, and 5'8. Colour is true to photos; I went for the darker grey marl but now want ALL OF THEM. – Amber

    6. These incredibly cosy socks that heat up in the microwave.

    Promising review: "You know what it's like, once your feet get cold it takes forever for them to warm up and it feels horrible. Stick these in the microwave for 2 minutes and once you have put them on it is like you have been transported to heaven on a cloud of lavender. They are difficult to walk on though. Being a lazy bugger I didn't bother to take them off sometimes (only for a few minutes) until one day I found it put a strain on the upper part of my foot (technically known as the upperpartus) and it hurt for a few days so beware! I now limit myself to the lavatory and back and that seems to be OK. They are fantastic but if you live with someone you will need to buy two pairs otherwise you will be permanently fighting over who gets to wear them." – Nemo James

    7. A reliable sunscreen that is light enough to wear everyday, and protects your skin.

    Promising review: "This sunscreen has been a godsend. It is very light and spreads easily has a lovely fresh lemony scent (which might not be to everyone's taste) Gives a very minimal white cast to my NC45 skin tone (for all those who know their MAC colours) and this isn't a huge issue as it can be covered by make up.

    My only slight niggle is that it can feel slightly heavy when worn with make up but I'm a girl who likes layers of skincare and it's great on no makeup days. And as it's one of the rare products that doesn't break me out, I'm happy to put up with it.

    Great budget sunscreen that i will definitely be repurchasing." – Nicoliyah.

    10. An all-natural clay mask that will help clear up blemishes, but not break the bank.

    Promising review: "This mask is a miracle in a tub, it helped me out with my blemishes, large pores, blackheads, acne and oiliness. It 'sucks' all of that dirt out of my pores and leaves my skin super smooth and clean. I have to say, once you wash the mask of your face, your skin will look really red for about half an hour, but then it comes back to normal. After a month of using it, I have noticed my pores looked a lot smaller and I don't get oily throughout the day. My make up sits beautifully on the skin and no touch ups needed! I'm on my third tub of this goodness and I will be ordering many more!" – Indre

    12. These tassel earrings that are a fun and cheap way to wear a trend.

    13. A two-player strategy game that is super-addictive, and easy to transport.


    Promising review: “I bought Hive before a long holiday with my boyfriend two years ago. It’s a two-player game that’s a bit like chess, but quicker – one game takes about 15 minutes. We were travelling across Scandinavia and getting trains almost every other day, which made Hive perfect because you don’t need a board for it. The aim of the game is to surround the queen bee with other insects, which all move in different ways. It sounds odd but is honestly the most compelling game I’ve ever played.” – Tabatha Leggett

    Promising review: "Nice pens in shabby chic colours! Very fine point is nice to write with. All different colours and a nice touch is that the colour is written on the cap! Great value but be prepared to wait to get them." – Diamond
