Things I Love About Autumn

We are now very much in Autumn, I know not everyone likes this season, I mean it's cold wet and can be a bit miserable.


However, there are so many reasons to love it too. I'll give a few reasons as to why.

  • The colours, this one is quite simple.. go outside and just have a look at the colours around you.  The leaves on the trees have turned beautiful colours, the colours of other peoples clothes. Autumn colours are beautiful.

  • Cosy evenings (by the fire if you have one) with a hot chocolate whilst it's miserable outside, maybe with a blanket too? 

  • Boots! Buying your first set of Autumn/Winter boots is the best isn't it?! 

  • Bonfire night is a really lovely evening of the year, getting together with your friends and family and watching the fireworks with a hot pork roll! (Cheeky roasted marshmallows too?!)

  • The build up to christmas, late night shopping and getting all festive is perfect :)

  • The lush christmas release means more baths! Autumn is chilly so the first thing I do once I'm out from the cold is get in to the warm bath.

  • Getting your onesie out! These were quite possibly the best invention, yes?! 

What do you love about Autumn?

Lazy Day Staple | Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow

We all have those days where we just can't be bothered to make ourselves look presentable, but some of us can't leave the house bare-faced and I'm guilty for being one of them...

Recently this has been a big pleasure of mine, the Chanel Eyeshadow Stylo In Moonriver. Unfortunately they don't sell this colour anymore as it became discontinued which is a real shame..however this link will bring you to a gorgeous jade shore colour.

This quickly became a favourite of mine simply because it's super easy! I smear it all over my eyelid (if i'm feeling lazy which is like all the time!!!) otherwise when i'm feeling slightly more adventurous I will blend it in with a lighter colour. I expect they will bring out this range again in a different season because Chanel like to spice things up now and again.

This was a pricey product at around twenty-something (i can't remember from the top of my head :( ) however the amount of use and love for it i gained outweighed it. 

Have you tried this product? Would you if they brought it out again?

Update ect..


Recently my posts haven't been regular up on here, I would say sorry, but I suppose I don't need to do I this is my place on the net and I do what I want...hehe.
There is nothing more I love to do than to kick back, take photos and write about beauty products or a maybe that gorgeous dress.. you know what I mean, as some one that works 37.5 hours a week in a fast paced environment by the time the day ends I am absolutely exhausted! It's so annoying and I really want to talk about something that isn't work which is really what I use my blog for. I dedicate my two days off a week to get my posts ready and videos for my youtube channel set up so on my evenings free I can just click the button to upload. Thing is I haven't been doing even that, I find on my days off there isn't enough hours in the day. I'd love to do this full-time, and I want to promise that posts will be up on tighter schedule I will set myself the challenge, so to keep myself going..please leave below some posts you'd love to see. 
Thank you so much to those of you who leave comments underneath my posts, it's lovely to see you enjoy reading them & I love to communicate with people that enjoy what I do.
