5 reasons why I love autumn.

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I really wanted to talk about autumn, but make it a sort of fun thing to read. I know you're probably bored of seeing endless pictures of leafs on instagram, and youtube videos of autumn makeup looks, but I cant get enough of them. So, I thought I would tell you 5 reasons why autumn is the best time for me. I hope you non autumn lovers start appreciating as much as me at the end of this!

1-  The fashion:
 I love autumn fashion, the beautiful burnt orange colours and camel coloured coats. I love the build up to winter getting all layered up. I really do prefer autumn/ winter fashion rather than summer. Sounds really lame, but I get so excited buying a new winter coat.  I have to admit I always want to buy more and more!

2- Hot drinks:
I love drinking hot chocolate at autumn time. I know most people say pumpkin spiced lattes from Starbucks, but I'm one of those very few people left who hasn't  even tried one yet, I will though I promise.

3-  The colours:
 I love the change of colours on the leafs. It really excites me and makes me feel so autumnal. I love all the clothes that are in the high street that represent the autumn colours.

4-  Candles:
 I love this time of year for candles. Shops slowly start bringing out cinnamon spiced candles and I just love that scent!

5-  Cosy nights:
I love cosy nights in watching films, indulging in chocolate and wrapping your self in blankets. There really is nothing better than that, seriously you end up having no plans when autumn comes!

New look Autumn wish list

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. Its been a while since I've shared with you my wish list, but since its Autumn my favourite time  of year. I thought I would share with you what I'm lusting after.
New look always stands out to me and I think they really know what they're doing when it comes to high street fashion. I was browsing online and their Autumn/Winter range is incredible, can I please just have everything!.

1. (Buy here) I love these cute boots, Autumn/Winter isn't complete without them. We all dread the snow and ice days I know, but these boots will make those days a lot easier. These boots would look great with black skinny jeans, and a knitwear jumper to keep you cosy.

2. (Buy rust jumper here) This colour just screams Autumn, it reminds me of the beautiful leafs. This colour is everywhere at Autumn time, and when asked what colour relates to Autumn, this burgundy red will spring to mind. This jumper would look great with skinny jeans and a leather jacket.

3. (Buy ripped knee trousers here) Black ripped knee jeans are a classic, they go with anything. I love how you can dress these up or down, with a fancy top and heels for night or a jumper and boots for day.

4. (Buy coat here) The colour really grabbed my attention, this tan colour is everywhere this Autumn/Winter. I love the colour and I have recently purchased a tanned boyfriend style coat, but you can never have too many tanned coats!

5. (Buy tartan scarf here) Tartan scarfs are so big at Autumn/Winter time, they're normally all the same colour being red but this is unique and stands out. I love the yellow detailed colour its so cute, it makes a difference to an ordinary red tartan scarf.

6. (Buy burgundy hat here) I love this burgundy colour, and by now I guess you can tell. Who doesn't love this colour at Autumn/Winter time? Its great to give your plain black hat a lively look with this colour.

7. (Buy pj top here) ''Its a bed hair and pyjamas kind of day.'' I love the saying on this pyjama top, because it really sums up Sunday. I love the navy colour and it will look great, with any pyjamas bottoms you may have.

8. (Buy cardigan here) I love these cardigan type ponchos, they are so cosy and look casual but put together at the same time. I love the tan colour, again another Autumn/Winter iconic colour.

9. (Buy bag here) I love this bag, because the colour will go with any outfit and its big enough to fit everyday things for school, work etc..

I received an email from a company called Bonprix telling me about their competition. You have to choose one of six dresses to create a nail look that goes with the outfit. The winner will win a £50 Bonprix voucher, and a selection of Barry M products worth £50. They also said there will be two lucky runners up!

So, because its Autumn I had to get a gorgeous plum shade in!
I love these Bourjois nail polishes, because they are so easy to apply and dry so quick.

A little bit of a nude colour!

A hint of glitter.

So, this is the finished look. I went for a plum and nude combination I think this looks so pretty.

This is the dress I chose to go with the nails. You can never go wrong with a classic black dress.

Confidence with out makeup!

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. So as you can see today I am targeting the topic of confidence, in particular about not wearing makeup. I love wearing makeup and experimenting with different looks, it gives me a lot of confidence and makes me feel more feminine. When you're wearing makeup on a regular basis it becomes more like a mask. Before you know it you end up wearing it everyday and you cant seem to leave the house with out it. I think its always best to give your skin some air and let it breathe, your skin really benefits from not wearing makeup. 

When you're wearing makeup on a day to day basis, I think its always best to keep it natural. I love to wear a tinted moisturiser, because it leaves my skin super soft and gives a little coverage. I also like how it gives my skin a healthy glow. Save the bold look for when you've got a special occasion coming up! I also think its absolutely fine to not wear any make up at all, in fact I think its amazing to have that amount of confidence to hold your head up high.

Remember when you're looking at pictures on Instagram of celebrities, they are airbrushed and filtered to perfection. But recently you're starting to see more and more celebs show off selfies of themselves with out makeup. I think this is a great idea to show off your true self, with out all the makeup.  Its great that celebrities have got involved with this to show that they have flaws too, and the most important thing they aren't perfect!

I think everyone should share a picture of their true self, whether that be without a filter or makeup just give it ago!

Makeup Revolution new-trals vs neutrals palette.

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I received my new makeup revolution palette, that they kindly sent for me to review. These opinions are all 100% my own and genuine. I thought I would share with you some of the looks I created with this palette, but first let me explain to you what I think about it.

When I first opened this palette I was so surprised with the colours, I thought they looked very high end and beautiful. I loved that there's a range of shimmery shadows and mattes. I also love the double ended eye shadow brush, I thought this was an amazing touch. When you normally buy an eye shadow palette you get those really rubbish foam brushes, but with this palette you get a double sided brush, one with a blending side the other to apply. I used this brush to apply my shadow and I was so surprised with how good it was. The blending side really blended my shadow nicely.

Pigmentation: I think these colours show up so well, I didn't even use a primer! These shadows are very buildable too, which is great if you're using more than one colour, or if you want to really intensify your look.

(Buy this palette here.)

Look 1:

I first applied the colour 'Bias' to the brow bone to give my brows a highlighted look.

I then applied the colour 'Style' to the crease using the fluffy blending brush.

I then went in with 'Mode' as the main lid colour.

Then went back over with the colour 'Style' to intensify the crease.

I then added eyeliner and some false lashes, ta-dah!

Look 2:

I first applied the colour 'Bias' to the brow bone.

I then applied the colour 'Adapt' to the crease with the fluffy blending brush.

I then applied Custom' as the main lid colour.

I also applied a little bit of 'Strong' to the outer area of the eye, only a tiny bit then I blended it.

Then I applied eyeliner and false lashes, and there you have it look number 2!

I love that this palette has a huge amount of looks you can create. You just have to play around and see what you can create. This eye shadow palette is so beautiful and perfect for Autumn. Ill definitely be wearing this on a regular basis.

Let me know what you think to this eye shadow palette in the comments.

10 things all cat owners can relate to.

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I will be sharing my thoughts that all cat owners experience. If you didn't know I had cats, where have you been? they are all I go on about. I have to admit I am a little cat obsessed, but not quite at the crazy cat lady point (I hope not anyway) If you didn't know I have two cats. The cat pictured above is called Jasper, and the one below is called Sooty.

Thinking about getting cats? let me share with you what its actually like to have them...

Very cute cats aren't they, but they do have their annoying traits.

1-  Purring, now this is often considered as a very cute thing;  its not when you're being woken up to it at a crazy time in the morning. My cats have a plan of purring in your ear and making as much noise as possible, until you get up and feed them.

2- They sleep all day and come alive at night, this can be annoying I'm not going to lie. My cats can often start running around playing when I decide to go to bed; whereas when I'm awake they are quite as ever.

3-  Leather sofa that looks gorgeous, yeah not when you decide to get cats. Be prepared for your cats to scratch the crap out of it. At first we had a leather sofa, but soon had to get another. I really don't know what it is with my cats and leather. They have so many scratch posts, but still insist on scratching furniture.

4-  So your relaxing on the sofa or busy doing something, but your cat decides they want attention. My cats will not stop annoying you, until you stop what you're doing and give them your full attention. Once I was writing a blog post and Jasper kept being mardy and crying, but I was too busy to stroke him so he decided to climb on my laptop and distract me.

5-  I know lets get the cats some treats they will love them, yep they definitely loved them; so much so they decided to jump up and rip the whole bag open and demolish the lot!

6- Cats are greedy; they will eat and eat until they are sick, trust me. My cats always think when ever me or my mum go in the kitchen they are going to get fed, you could of just fed them that minute and they will still think FOOD!

7- Trying to get a cute picture with your cat, and the reality is you end up getting scratched. Cats really let you know when they have had enough! They certainly aren't shy of that.

8-  So my cats literally seem to follow me everywhere, no joke they even follow me when I go in the bath. This one time Sooty decided to sit on the edge of the bath, and he accidently fell in. Sooty then ended up looking like a drowned rat bless him!

9-  Cats can be lazy. Don't expect them to be playing all day, because half of the time they just sleep.

10- No matter how annoying your cats can be, you still love them no matter what!
