Autumn, as well as one of my favourite seasons, is a busy season, and with Halloween and Bonfire Night fast approaching, now seems like the perfect time to seize the colourful array of fall and brighten up this somewhat stormy Monday morning! I particularly love bringing out burnt out tones in both my wardrobe and make up at this time of year, so mustard coloured jumpers and oranges-based lips are a must. But, without further ado, here are some of the things that make Autumn, Autumn, for me...
What is your favourite thing about Autumn?
Probably the crisp, Autumnal mornings when the sun is shining and the novelty of wearing your sunglasses with a scarf and bobble hat!
When I'm at home, I'll reach for a Twinings' Camomile and Spiced Apple, which is so delicious. Almost like mulled cider! But if I'm out and about, then you cannot beat the Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte, which I know will be a favourite among many others! It is so wonderfully warming and most importantly, super tasty. Yum.
Last Autumn we picked up a candle in T K Maxx which I really cannot remember the name of now. I'm convinced it was a 'For Every Body' candle which went by the name 'Spiced Cider' or something similar. I cannot remember!! And I cannot find it online anywhere. But it smelt absolutely incredible and we went through two large ones in about 10 days. I will track you down said candle...
My favourite lipstick that I have pulled out now the last couple of years is MAC's Limited Edition Amplified Lipstick in Tribalist. It's a beautiful, rich plum shade and you can find my full review, here. This was limited edition and part of the Style Warrior Collection a couple of years ago, but MAC's 'Rebel' is significantly similar.
Go to Moisturiser?
I've just picked up my go-to A/W moisturiser, which is Liz Earle's Skin Repair Moisturiser. This really works wonders and feeds thirsty skin as the colder climate hits. It's packed full of natural goodness and smells gorgeous.
Go to colour for Eyes?
Currently, it's 'On and On Bronze', or 'Bad to the Bronze', as it is also called. This infamous Colour Tattoo from Maybelline is super easy to apply and it the perfect colour for this season. It's a gorgeous natural bronze with a hint of shimmer, which looks absolutely beautiful when used as an eyeshadow base, or blended into the crease. It's cream consistency makes it very easy to apply so it's great for the mornings when you're in a rush!
Favourite Autumnal outfit?
At the moment I'm reaching for a chunky knit to throw on over tights and a simple skater dress. Teemed with ankle boots and a boyfriend style jacket, this is definitely my cosy but comfy option for Autumn! (It's also a great way to carry on wearing your Summer dresses!) Here's one example...
What do you treat yourself to over Autumn?
I like to treat myself to a new pair of boots as we enter into Autumn and this year, I've invested in the 'Understanding' Leather Boots from Office. They're my babiessss! I also like to go for a new jacket or coat. These are staples to invest in at this time of year. Otherwise, I'm saving up to treat my loved ones at Christmas!
Your favourite place to be?
Cosied up by the fire with a warm drink and my favourite people.
