September Favourites

These past couple of months my daily routine has changed enormously and week to week I seem to just run through the days without even realising. So this month and last month I've ended up with a few staple favourites that have really stood out!
  • Benefit 'Rollerlash' Mascara - I actually got a sample of this as I can have a bad reaction to mascaras but really wanted to try it out and will definitely be picking up the full size, I don't think I've ever loved a mascara as much as this one!
  • MAC 'Brave' Lipstick - This wasn't a colour I ever thought I'd like as much as I do as I normally just go for nude lipsticks, but I actually love the subtle pink tone to this! It really brightens up any natural look, especially on busy days
  • Nike Trainers - I've never actually owned a pair of trainers before except for working out, but when shopping in an outlet mall a few months ago I fell in love with these. They're so comfortable and slowly I'm converting to wearing them with casual outfits.
  • Clarins Instant Concealer - I was a bit late to the party trying this one but I can now see what they hype is about! This has helped to cover my massive dark under eye circles that aren't letting up at the moment, I think I may need to invest in a corrector as well to really tackle them though!
  • Blistex Lip Moisturiser - This has been an absolute saviour product recently! I always struggle with dry skin and these past few months my lips have been so cracked and dry and bleeding no matter how much lip salve I use! So I picked this up on a whim and it's been so good, I only use it morning and night but already my lips are feeling softer and a lot less sore!
What have you been loving this month?

Autumn Wishlist 2015

So summer has pretty much been and gone in the blink of an eye for us in England and to be quite honest I've been wishing Autumn to arrive. The past few weeks it's gotten colder and the weather's gotten more dreary and I've been looking forward to wrapping up in my comfy jumpers and staying in on an evening watching films. So I thought, what better time than to put together my Autumn Wishlist!

  • The Perfect Bronze Eyeshadow - Something that I most likely have in every wishlist, however the search continues for the perfect bronzed shade. I'm due in London a few times this month and next so I'm hoping to pop to Selfridges and have a scour of the Charlotte Tilbury counter for this beauty
  • Lace Up Flats - These have become quite a trend this summer and I think they're so chic! Definitely something that can dress up any outfit!
  • Copper Jewellery - I love the copper/rose gold tones for jewellery and I think it compliments the autumn pallets perfectly!
  • Chunky Knit's - I mean, you can never have enough comfy jumpers!
  • Brown Satchel Bag - Probably another thing that's in every one of my wish lists, I'm still searching for the perfect one though!
  • Button Down A-Line Skirt - I also love this trend that has come into AW15 and think the A-Line shape is so flattering. I've had my eye on this one from Miss Selfridge for ages and love the colour for Autumn
  • Light Trench Coat - Being 5ft tall I always have trouble finding a good length trench coat, however they are the perfect light layer for getting into Autumn before the colder times set in!
What's on your Autumn Wishlist?
