My Autumn Loves


Here in the UK it feels likes as soon as September 1st came round the Autumn weather began. Gone were the mild mornings and in comes the fresh morning air.
The evenings are starting to draw in too. And with this change in season I have already drifted to jumpers and snuggling up with a good book. So I thought I would share the things I have been loving so far this month...


Autumn to me is not Autumn until a multitude of jumpers have been brought. Though I still have an array of jumpers from last Autumn/Winter that I must dig out. I find jumpers and sweaters can be worn more than just for that season. I still have a few that I am looking forward to wearing again.
Though when in Primark recently I discovered this knitted lovely above. It is a slouchy white knit with frayed sections at the bottom.
I have teamed this with blue and black denim jeans for a casual and cosy Autumn look. And being white it goes with most my wardrobe.


Awhile ago on Facebook I saw that Buzzfeed reviewed a number of eyeliners for longevity (how long it lasted before running out), stayability, smudginess and overall look. And this Stila one came out head and shoulders above the rest.
So when I was in Marks and Spencers of recent I decided to pick up one and see if it lives up to the hype.
And I am pleased to say it does. It is easy to apply (even though I find my round eyes tricky to apply eyeliner to), it lasts all day and does not smudge.
I have made the error in the last few months of wearing an eyeliner that is not waterproof and a short time of wearing it, after my eyes watering a little, I had the panda eye look I wasn't going for!

I have been using this Stila eyeliner for a few weeks now and so far not suffered from the black eye effect!
I would say if you want a great all round eyeliner that stays put then I don't think you can get better than this!


When Lindsey announced earlier this year that she was bringing out another I Heart book later this year I was super excited! The I Heart series is one of my fav series of books and I just love, love the main character Angela.

With the title I Heart Forever I was thinking could this be the last one in the series? Please let it be no. So I tweeted Lindsey and she kindly confirmed it was not, phew!

I devoured this book in a matter of hours over three days. It lived up to the previous books in the series and left me itching for the next book to continue the storylines.
The main consensus of the series is set around a British character called Angela (Angie to her friends) and after the splitting from her fiancé she finds herself in New York, hauled up in a hotel room wondering what on earth she was going to do.
The series of books follows Angela's life as she tries to make a go of living in New York. Much drama and humour in equal measures ensues. Not helped by a new colleague Cici who is set out to make Angela's life as difficult as possible.
There is also romance with the like of Alex, singer of the rock/pop group The Stills (I'm thinking Maroon 5 type band) and I loved how their relationship grows, with a number of highs and lows.

If you love a real, funny, slightly sarcastic character with lot's of pop culture references then this book is perfect for the cooler, darker evenings for snuggling up with a hot drink with.



This eye shadow palette was a recent bargain find in TK Maxx. Priced at £14.99 I though this was a steal. I have seen Debenhams still sell this for the RRP price.

This is my first Too Faced product (gasp!) and I love it. Looking at the packaging before the actual product inside I thought that each eyeshadow segment would be quite small, but actually they are a good size.
I mostly love the coppery colour shade in the first heart shape. Perfect for Autumn. The other shades complement it well for a smoky eyed look.
It also comes with an black eyeliner too with a smudger tool at the opposite end to create more of a smokey eye.
I don't know if this is a common feature with Too Faced palettes, but next to the mirror are three cards with information on how to create different eye looks using the palette. A great touch!

And that is my fav items this season so far. I hope you like them and give you inspiration for this Autumn!

Love and hugs,
