The Autumn Tag


I haven't done a tag post on my blog yet and I saw this tag on a blog (can't remember who's blog though sorry) and copied the questions into my notes on my phone and as I love Autumn, I thought why not do 'The Autumn Tag' so here goes...

1. Whats your favourite seasonal drink? (Starbucks, Costa, Cafe Nero etc)
Last year I really loved the honeycomb hot chocolate from Costa, yum! I'm not really a fan of hot drinks (I don't drink tea or coffee) but I really love hot chocolate and honeycomb! mmmmm!

2. Accessories - what do you opt for? Scarf, gloves, boots?
I love dressing for the Autumn season! I love wearing scarves and my favourite one is a red tartan scarf that my sister brought me for Christmas last year! I also love my black Chelsea boots that I got from Ebay last year, I think they were around £10 too, such a bargain!

3. What is your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I don't really have particular music I listen to during Autumn but this year I will definitely be listening to The Vamps album, 'Meet The Vamps' on repeat as I'm seeing them in concert in October! I cant wait!!

4. Perfume - What is your favourite scent for this time of year?
I have a few favourite perfumes that I love but none are very autumnal! One of my favourites though is Vera Wang's Princess!

5. Candles - What scents will you be burning this season?
As soon as it starts to get cooler, I love cinnamon scented candles! They just remind me of this time of year and I think the cinnamon scent is very appropriate for Autumn (and Winter!)

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
I love Autumn! I love the days when its sunny but there is a crisp chill in the air. I love getting wrapped up in layers and of course The X Factor has started which means its almost Christmas!!

7. Favourite Make-up Looks?
I love bold dark lips! I love Rimmel Kate's lipstick in 107! Also a dark smoky eye is always great for a night out!

8. What are you most looking forward to in Autumn?
Halloween! and of course The Vamps Concert next month!!

I tag all of you reading my post and let me know if you do it too, I'd love to read your answers. Also the photo I have used is not mine, I found it on Google so the credit goes to the owner!

Hello Autumn!





























Autumn is here so that means out with the summer shorts and dresses and in with winter coats, tights and of course dark nails! Last weekend, when I was shopping with my mum, I went into Boots and was of course drawn over to the make-up counters where there was a 2-for-1 deal on Barry M cosmetics so I had to take advantage and buy some of their nail polishes as obviously I don't have enough of them...

Instead of picking up their gorgeous bright summery nail polishes, I decided to purchase some of their new winter nail colours and picked up a lovely deep green shade called 'Cardamom'.  and this beautiful deep red one called 'Chilli'. I really love deep dark nail colours for the Autumn and Winter months so these two are perfect for me! Also as the leaves are starting to fall, I decided to pick up some from outside my house and add them into the photos to give them a nice Autumn touch!

Are you excited for Autumn/Winter? What nail colours are going to be gracing your nails for the next few months?

Fresh White Nails





























Autumn officially begins on the 23rd - so next week! - and as much as I'm looking forward to all the things that come with the later part of the year.. Halloween on October 31st, Fireworks in November and of course Christmas in December!, I want to make the most of the sunshine that has graced London for the past few days! What better way than with fresh white nails! I don't know about you, but I love them! I agree they can be slightly risky and can end up looking a bit tacky and like tipex but for Summer, I think the risk is worth taking as they work really well!

My favourite white nail polish is, yep you guessed it! Barry M! (my favourite nail polish brand which I think I've mentioned a few times...) This one is from their normal nail collection and is called 'Matt White'.

What do you think of fresh white nails?

September Sunshine | Floral Shorts



























With Autumn just a few days away, you would think the summer sunshine would be long gone but oh no! Today, in London, the sun shined and it has been very warm for the middle of September. To celebrate the sunshine, I made the most of my summer wardrobe and decided to wear some summer floral flared shorts which I brought from Matalan probably something like three years ago and paired them with my black crop top from Topshop which I love! To complete my look I added my cute black laced pumps which I brought from Primark at the beginning of the year!

WHAT I WORE:

Floral Shorts \ Matalan
Crop Top \ Topshop
Laced Pumps \ Primark

I really love doing outfit style posts so I will definitely try to do them more often throughout Autumn and Winter! Hope you are all having a lovely Friday and all have a great weekend!

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub




















































Who doesn't love Lush products? I know I do! I went shopping to Westfield with my sister last week and went into Lush as I knew I wanted a lip scrub as I've heard great reviews about them and since we had a pretty warm summer, my lips had started to get dry despite regularly applying lip balm or vaseline! I tried out all three of the lip scrub scents by smelling them (as you do in Lush!) and I decided to buy the popcorn scent - there is a bubblegum one and a mint one too. 

The popcorn one is a sweet scent and smells very much like caramel butter. I have been using it once a day for the past week and definitely feel my lips are feeling more normal and not so chapped and dry. It is very effective at exfoliating my lips yet it is very gentle and all natural. The sugar used in the lip scrub is edible.

One negative point, I have is the price. I think I paid £5.99 for this one and feel that it was a bit much to pay for a lip scrub so I may try and make my own next time but I do love the Lush one though! Although it is quite a big pot so I think it will last a while.

Have you got a favorite Lush product?
