Autumn


It's finally October and this can only mean one thing,
AUTUMN IS ON IT'S WAY.

Here are some things I love about Autumn that i'm really looking forward to:


Hot Chocolates
Halloween
Autumn Leaves
Scarves, Hats and Boots
Candles, Candles & more Candles
Pumpkins
Horror Films
Bonfires
Cosy Socks
Comfort Food
Salted Caramel being IN SEASON
Oversized Jumpers
Getting the fire going
The feeling that Christmas is approaching
More baths in the evenings
Rainy days under the duvet watching films
 Evenings get darker
Being able to watch Hocus Pocus
Conkers
Wearing more onesies
Fireworks
Sparklers


What are you excited for around this time of the year?

Beauty | Autumn Colours

ColourPop Eye Shadows in So Quiche, Lace and Krinkle
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Palette in 06 Currant Desire

One of my favourite things about Autumn is all of the beautiful seasonal colours and shades that start appearing in beauty products and new releases. I thought I'd share a few gorgeous shades I've spotted recently..

When the weather gets cooler I tend to move away from pastel nail shades and into deeper tones, and the new Autumn Collection from Barry M and the Hollywood collection from Leighton Denny are perfect for that. I absolutely love the deep blue LD shade 'No Pictures Please'.

I find myself wearing more shimmer in eyeshadows at this time of year too, these shades from ColourPop are so pretty and great for creating a more shimmery smokey eye. This palette from Estee Lauder is absolutely stunning too, the purple berry tones are stunning and the shades compliment each other beautifully.

For lips I again go for deeper, richer tones, and the new Matte Revolution collection by Charlotte Tilbury is perfect for this. Amazing Grace is a lovely vintage rose shade that would be lovely in the day time, and Glaston-Berry is much darker, and more vampy, so a great evening wear shade. I actually did a tutorial using this lipstick which you can watch below...
