Taking You Through My Skincare Routine


By now I'm sure you're all well aware of my love for skincare - seriously, give me a cup of tea and a box of products and I will chat to you about them for hours. More recently I've been favouring a more laid back approach to my routine, missing out a few steps that aren't always necessary and using just a handful of products that I know work for me. Also, as we're now in the coldest part of the year I'm having to deal with a complete lack of moisture - dry skin people, ya feel me, so I've had to pick products that are basically the equivalent of dipping my head in a bucket of water every five minutes!

Autumn Smokey Make Up Using the Lorac Pro Palette


A lot of the time Autumn make up looks tend to be all about dark lips, which, don't get me wrong I'm totally in favour of, but as well as making the most of berry toned products this season I've also been opting for a Fall inspired dusky nude, the likes of which even Kylie Jenner would be proud of. Enter two MAC lipsticks I never thought I'd own but two that I'm totally enjoying using nonetheless, Velvet Teddy and Mehr. Pair with a slightly vampy matte brown smokey eye courtesy of the Lorac Pro Palette - something you seriously need to consider adding to your US beauty shopping list, and some fresh looking skin and you've got an Autumn look that I can't get enough of at the moment.

This Week: Feeling Autumnal


Are you bored of my harping on about how much I'm loving Autumn yet? No, didn't think so! I've spent my weekends recently (and in fact, any time I leave the house) wrapped up in layer upon layer of jumpers, scarves and coats - I'm definitely one of those people who always feels the cold! I've been living in this Zara black number since I bought it and love how easy it is to pair with practically every outfit. Plus it's super cosy and has pockets deep enough to hide half your arm!

What's In My Bag: Autumn Edition


Fancy another root around in my handbag this afternoon? I thought so! This burgundy across body satchel from Kurt Geiger is one of my favourites to date and the perfect colour and size to be my go-to Autumn carry all. Of course you'll find the usual suspects in there - keys, phone charger, more lip products than one person could ever need in a day (although you'll be surprised at the number I pulled out this time around!) but I've had to make a few space saving substitutions and in turn have learnt that we don't all need to be Mary Poppins when it comes to bag packing this season!
