October favourites

Hi Guys! octobers nearly over, and its almost halloween so i thought id share some of my favourites this month.
My favourite makeup item this month definately has to be the maybelline colour tattoo in pink gold, i absolutely love the maybelline colour tattoos so when i saw they had a new shade i had to run out and get it. This creme eyshadow adds a beautiful rose gold shimmer to your eyelids, works great as a primer and doesnt crease at all.

maybelline colour tattoo 'pink gold' £4.99
My first fashion favourite of this month is my tartan scarf from h&m, its so soft and warm and it looks amazing with leather, a definate staple for the autumn season.


tartan scarf H&M - £8
Another fashion favourite are christmas leggings! i dont care that its only october, im already in the festive spirit and ive been living in these leggings all month, again there super soft and warm and look so cute with a oversized jumper, Primark stock an entire range of designs.

Lastly i cant have a favourites post without including an essie nail polish and ive been adoring this khaki colour called 'sew physched' very autumnal and looks so pretty on the nails.

My autumn wardobe staples?

Hi everyone, as we are getting further into the autumn season, there a certain pieces in my wardrobe that i cannot live without and i thought id share them with you!
Firstly this season i have constantly reaching for my beanies, i'd forgotten how much i loved them, i have them in every colour and design as they go with any outfit to give it a cosy autumnal feel, they also save me from doing my hair yey! my favourite this month has been the one above from peacocks, i think it was £6?
peacocks- £6
Next i have been hauling this beauty around with me since the beggining of september, a cosy tweed satchel £35 from henry holland, if you read my blogs reguarly you'll know that i love anything henry holland, it really is an amazing and affordable line that is always bang on trend! and theyve defiantely done it again this season with their range of bags, this one is perfect, just the right size and looks great with a big warm coat!
Henry holland - £35
Now, im not normally a big fan of primark because i think the stuff can be quite cheap looking and everyone seems to be wearing the same thing however i am truly shocked at the quality of the super soft super skinny jeans! i am not a jean wearer as they make me feel restricted and im also quite short and find it hard to find a pair that fit, But these are honestly the best jeans ive ever owned in my life and they are £7! Even better they come in every colour you can imagine and are incredibly comfy, ive heard people compare them to the Topshop 'Leigh' jeans and i can understand why! im so impressed, primark are defiantely on there game with these jeans and i own about 8 pairs of them now!
Primark- £7
With my new found love for jeans, ive found that ive started bulk buying comfy tees such as the one above, i think there a simple and stylish way to create a cosy autumn outfit and i just love them! this one is from Topshop and was £18, i also love the colour!
Topshop- £18
Lastly this month i have been living in oversized jumpers, theyre just so comfy and look great with leggings and a blouse underneath, once again im impressed with primark in this area and i got this gorgeous fairisile print jumper for £12, its so soft and again great quality, well done primark!
Primark- £12

Holy grail hair products?

Its friday bloggers! i was really struggling for blog post ideas today and i realised ive never done a post about hair, so i thought id give you an insight to some of my holy grail hair products!
Ive always had an interest in hair, ive lost count of the amount of times ive Coloured and bleached it, yet my hair it still perfectly healthy. For this i thank aussies 'take the heat' heat defence spray.
I spray this a few times into my hair when damp and thats it! there isnt alot to say really. Its around £4 and smells absolutely a.m.a.z.i.n.g i honestly cant live without it and i must be on my 40th bottle of the stuff!

Sadly i suffer with very oily hair and i find myself washing it every single day!, i'd tried every dry shampoo under the sun but i hated the way they left my hair feeling! until i found this! Lush's 'no drought' dry shampoo is only £3.50, smells gorgeous, lasts forever and leaves my hair feeling just washed! i cant praise this product enough, it may sound dramatic but lush has genuinally changed my life.

My last holy grail hair product is the babyliss pro 235 straigntners, there so easy to use, they heat up so quickly and there pink! the curved barrel also enables you to create the perfect beachy waves in your hair in minutes! these cost around £40-£50 but theyre totally worth the money, you'll never use another styling tool again.

My perfect autumn lip combonation

Hey everyone, as we are travelling further and further into the autumn season, new makeup trends are making a big impact in the world of beauty and after trying a few products ive found an affordable autumn lip that looks beautiful and lasts all day.
When applying this lip combonation i keep my eye makeup pretty simple, (thin winged eyeliner and mascara) this is to stop the face from looking too overpowering therefore you can apply this as an everyday look!
Rimmel black tulip lip liner
Firstly i outline and contour my lips with the rimmel lasting finish lip liner in the colour 'black tulip' this makes my lips look fuller and more perfect, your lipstick also tends to stay on alot longer and at £2.99 this product is a bargain!

Next i apply Rimmels kate moss matt lipstick in the shade '107' which has just been released in the new autumn range. I adore this lipstick, its perfect for autumn and is alot easier to pull off than a true red, it also tastes amazing (not that i eat lipstick) and at £5.49 you cant go wrong.
kate moss matt lipstick shade: 107
Lastly to lock in my lipstick and ensure that it lasts all day i apply a thin layer of lipcote, this clear gloss acts like a barrier so that your lipstick stays even after a meal! even better it doesnt unmattify lipsticks and you cant even tell your wearing it! the only downside to this product is that it stings a tiny bit when first applied, but for £3 i think i can forgive.

Lipcote: lip coat

All these products are stocked in boots/superdrug and most supermarkets aswell!

October Wishlist...

I know everyone says it but i cant believe were already in october! it will be 2013 before we know it! The uk has defiantely entered the autumn season and everyone is preparing themselves for the long cold months ahead. This month while searching the internet ive had my eye on some items that will come in handy over the next few months so i thought i would share them with you!
Firstly i have fallen in love with this faux leather skirt from red herring (can be found in debenams) and it could be a potential must have in my autumn wardrobe, i think this skirt would look so cute with a pure white blouse, some tights and some gold jewellery, perfect for autumn! and at £18 you cant go wrong?
Red herring leather skate skirt- £18
Next up is the real techniques eyeshadow brushes, i purchased the Real technques face brushes a few months ago and i honestly havent put them down! theyre amazing quality, theyre an absolute bargain compared to mac and sigma brushes and they leave my makeup looking flawless. So after seeing the eyshadow brushes, i cant help but putting them on my shopping list! im excited to create some autumn eyeshadow looks using these little beauties.
Real techniques eyeshadow brush set- £22
Lastly is a big wooly warm snood scarf from topshop, ive been looking for a good khaki snood for some time now and ive recently come across this one, snood scarves look amazing paired with a leather jacket and a pair of skinny jeans and i cant get enough of them. however being a bargain hunter, im not sure whether i can justify £16 for a scarf?
Topshop snood- £16

What do you think, are these products worth the money? and what are your must have items for october?
