IT’S OCTOBER!  Only my favourite month of the year- along with every other absolute basics.  October comes and it’s like all of a sudden it turns into actual Autumn. Leaves start to fall, conkers appear on the ground and YES I CAN FINALLY LIGHT ALL THE AUTUMNAL CANDLES! Let’s not even discuss that it’s also when the queen of autumn beverages becomes available in Starbucks..love you PSL. My current Autumn wishlist is pretty long, as is my ASOS saved items list, and is a combination of everything I need for the new season .  1. The chunky knit jumpers I purchased one of these jumpers from New Look over the weekend and oh my..I now need it in every colour. It is the perfect knit and I love the detail at the back. Not to mention it comes in berry and mustard which are the ultimate Autumn colours!  2. Autumn… View Post

Benefit are a brand I have been buying from for what feels like forever. I always remember when I was in secondary school and a girl in my R.E class pulled out a Benetint, telling us her sister worked for the brand and how good it was. A few years later I was a complete fan.  There are few products I dislike from Benefit and they certainly know how to do a relaunch of old favourites alongside adding exciting new products.  Their newest launch has been a range of concealer including four versions of the Boi-ing classic.  I popped along to my local Fenwicks last week to have my brows done by the babes at the Bene-brow bar and they applied some of the Boi-ing airbrush concealer to me afterwards where my makeup had come off and OH MY.  When Benefit say airbrush, they definitely mean it. My skin looked… View Post

I feel like I am probably the only person in the world who has this opinion but I CAN’T STAND MATTE LIPSTICKS. There, I said it.  I have found around 3 matte lipsticks I can actually bare wearing and they are by Mac, Charlotte Tilbury and Chanel. I constantly have dry lips despite drinking gallons of water and applying lip balm by the bucket load so matte lipsticks do not work for me.  Going to sound like the worst blogger now, but i haven’t actually purchased a new lipstick in about 6 months (oh, the horror). Once I find a lip product I love, I find it difficult to move away from it and try something new. Lately it’s been a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect and Mac’s Peach Blossom- ultimate old faves! BUT, I had a trip to my local Boots after work this week to pick up… View Post

I have been lusting after this palette for so long, I can’t believe I finally got my hands on it. I asked my mum to pick it up for me when she was in New York, but every Sephora/Ulta was sold out! It’s also been on my QVC wait list for a good 3-4 weeks, so I was really surprised when I received an email saying it was on its way! *cue all the excitement* When it arrived, my first thought was “erm…this is…small”. But, although it may be smaller than I imagined..this palette is so beautiful and perfect it may make you weep tears of pure happiness! (Probably not, but it is pretty damn beaut!) The 12 shades are all Matte, which is great as a lot of palettes overdo it on the shimmers. They range from neutral tones to pinks, purples and deeper tones, all with super cute… View Post

   I’m not the hugest fan of blushers, in total I probably own around 5 or 6 (excluding palettes) just because i’m more of a bronzer gal at heart. Seriously, bronzer is essential in summer and all year round , and I’m yet to find a blusher that I fall completely in love with.  Saying that, there are some which I think can look super pretty and applied in the right way, they can give that naturally flushed look. This is what i aim for with blushers. If you can see pink on my face, then it’s too much! A subtle glow is what we are aiming for here and I have picked out three different types of blusher to give you that perfect spring time flush.   First we have the Collection Speedy Blush in 01 Tickled Pink RRP. £3.99 (currently on offer in Boots for £2.99) Collection says… View Post
