A few autumn faves

autumn favourites

Autumn. My favourite season. The crisp air, crunchy leaves, Netflix nights in with the fire on – I can’t help it, I love it. Much to the annoyance of my friends and family, I sporadically launch into an enthusiastic monologue, during this time of year, about how much I love autumn. This level of enthusiasm usually doubles when the leaves have fallen and the Christmas tress come out. So to any friends and family reading this post…brace yourselves, the festive period is almost among us! #SorryNotSorry

 

Anyway I love reading favourites posts, so I thought I’d share what I’m currently loving, besides the season itself obvs…

Candles are as much an autumn essential as the central heating, in my opinion, and although the BBW candles are a blogger cliché, I had to see what the fuss was about. Three eBay bidding wars later (as BBW products are sadly not sold in the UK), the Autumn and Fall three-wick large candles were mine and to put it simply, you will ‘fall’ in love too. Autumn is more of a fresh scent and Fall reminds me of evenings in, as it has a thicker, more spiced scent – perfect for cosy nights in watching The Crown on Netflix. Speaking of The Crown…

The Crown

Every since I saw the trailer for the new Netflix drama The Crown, I marked the release date and scheduled a binge-watch day, as Netflix released the whole season at once! Got to love Netflix, right? Whether you’re a royalist or not really fussed about the Royal Family, The Crown is a great drama and gives an insight to what it would be like to be Queen in a very male-oriented world.

I don’t usually follow beauty trends; I’ve never had any desire to buy the Kylie lip-kits and I still can’t work out contouring, however a couple of weeks back I went to Harrods with a couple of friends to check out the new Huda Beauty range and got convinced to get a couple of the liquid matte shades.

I picked up Icon and Muse, which I think are perfect shades for this time of year and have been wearing them non-stop since. Now I’m no beauty guru but in my opinion, the quality is excellent, as it glides on very smoothly and doesn’t budge for hours. Next on my list are Gossip Gurl and Cheerleader.
