Autumn Wishlist

Autumn Wishlist

Hello everyone!!

Today I have a little autumn wish list for y'all. Lately I have been lusting over a few items for the autumn season and thought I would share them with you. The first being a new autumn/winter jacket, it is a navy parka from H&M and I love it. I seen this greyish jumper from H&M the other day in store and fell in love but they did not have my size so I’m on the hunt for this but it is so cosy and would be perfect for the colder weather. The next two items are beauty products, a nail polish and an eye shadow. The nail polish is from the Barry M gelly range in Paprika and it is this gorgeous burnt orange colour, perfect for autumn. The eye shadow is cranberry from MAC, my sister owns this but I hate having to ask her for it so I think its time I bought my own. The next thing is from the new Zoella beauty range and its one of her makeup bags; I love the design of this and think it’s really cute. I do not really need a new makeup bag but I love this one. The last thing is a candle from Village Candle and it’s in the scent spiced pumpkin. I love all things pumpkin scented so I cannot wait to smell this.

Autumn TAG!!

Hello everyone!!

Today I am going to be doing the Autumn Tag 2014 that I seen a few people do and  decided because I love tags & Autumn I would do it. As it is autumn and of course that is my favourite season I thought it would be appropriate to do an Autumn Tag. 

  1.    Ok, we are talking coffees – what is your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks? 
I love Pumpkin spice lattes; they are delicious and always make me feel so cosy. Every time I get it, I automatically have a smile on my face because it just makes me so happy. I also love the smell of it when I open the lid, it just screams AUTUMN!!!!

2.    Accessories – what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves.
As soon as it starts to get colder, I tend to start buying beanie hats. They are a staple for autumn/winter time, they make your head warm but some of them are awesome looking. I love the ones with a bobble at the end.

3.    Music – what is your favourite music to listen to during autumn?
My music taste does not really change throughout the year apart from Christmas time when I sing Christmas songs all day. Autumn time just calls for the same music I listen to all year round.

4.    Perfume – what’s your favourite scent for this time of year?
This is a hard one... I do not have any perfumes that smell of autumn scents but lately I have been loving Philosophy Living Grace. Even though it is a rather fresh scent and normally associated with summer, I have been wearing it a lot lately.

5.    Candles – what scents will you be burnings this season?
Anything with Cinnamon & Pumpkin in it is all I burn. When I was in NYC earlier in the year I picked up a couple of Bath and Body Works candles in Mahogany Teakwood and have saved them just for Autumn. 

6.    What do you love most about Autumn?
Crunchy leaves & Halloween are my favourite!!! I also love the colours (oranges, burgundy, purples etc), pumpkins, the changing of the leaves, baking things with cinnamon flavours. Oh, I just love everything about autumn.

7.    Favourite makeup look?
I love darker lips, like a berry colour. I really like using a lot warmer colours such as orange in my eye makeup as I think it just looks so pretty.

8.    What are you looking forward to most in autumn?
I am so looking forward to HALLOWEEN this year, even though I always do. I'm most excited about all the things I have planned to bake. When I was younger, we used to always carve pumpkins but as the years went on that tradition faded, so maybe this year I will carve one again.

Thank you all for reading & I hope you do it too!!!

I'M BACK!!!!

Hey Everyone!

It has been such a long time since I sat down and wrote a blog post, over the last few months life has been crazy. I had to take a break from blogging and at first, I did not imagine taking such a long break but I did. In a way I am so glad I took a break, it let me just relax and enjoy life for a while rather than feel pressured to upload a blog post. Even though I do not have as much readers/followers as other bloggers, I still felt I needed to upload as much as possible. I do want to get back into blogging because I enjoyed it and it felt so rewarding after each post I uploaded.
I'm going to start by updating you on my life a little bit and what has been going on since my last blog post.  In May, I sat my exams then travelled to NYC with my family. The whole trip was amazing and I fell in love with the city. Before I went I was not that fussed about the city and didn't think I would like it that much but I was completely wrong, it was everything and more. A city is full of life and has so much to see and do, which I why I really want to go back. The weather was amazing and it was super hot so I would love to go back in winter when its much cooler. Then in June, I travelled to Bruges, Belgium with my school. This trip was amazing, we saw many great sites such as the battlefields, cemeteries and the trenches. All things I have wanted to see for years, as I have always been interested in history. The city of Bruges is beautiful; it was rather small but it was such a lovely city to visit and would love to go back with my family to show them the sites that I saw. I also went to see my idol, Dolly Parton, in Manchester. Ever since I can remember, I have loved Dolly so seeing her live in concert was a dream come true. The whole night I was up on feet dancing and she even sung my favourite song, Coat of Many Colours. This summer I took a few trips to Alton towers and ventured to the countryside of Scotland. In August, I received my exam results and done amazingly well, much better than expected. Even though I done great I made the choice of staying close to home and not going, off to Inverness to go to uni. I started college a few weeks ago studying acting and Performance and love it. The group of people on my course are fantastic and we have all became like the best of friends which makes everything so much easier. Overall life has been great and in the next few months things will be getting a little crazier but just now I am having so much fun and I do want to bring blogging back into my life. Of course, my next blog post will be a tag because you know how much I love them but I will be doing other posts.

Thank you for taking the time to read this & hope you enjoyed!
