Good evening friends,
What a wet and windy, yet wonderful autumn night.
Autumn/Fall for me is all about Comfort, your home and clothes become a little cosier, embracing the dark nights and chill in the air, and having some much needed downtime.
Here’s a few of my autumn essentials.
Beanies Coffee 50ml £1.99 each (Lidl)
Until last year I never understood the hype of ‘Pumpkin Spiced Lattes’ – and then I got hooked.
I’m not really one for flavoured coffees, but they give that extra warmth this time of year.
Whilst in my local Lidl, I spotted the Beanies Pumpkin Spice instant coffee.
Oh my! It’s been just over a week and I’ve finished a jar. I went back to grab another jar, and picked up Cinder toffee, Caramel popcorn, Nutty hazelnut, Irish cream
Candles £3 each – Gingerbread Cookie and winter Spice (B&M)
I’m all about candles, each season brings a different scent. This year I hunted high and low for spiced candles. Finally I found them in B&M, and how cute are they? And yes, due to the many unsuccessful trips trying to find them, I picked up 3 of each.
George cream short tench coat (New with tags) £5
BM Collection heavy blush pink coat £5
I, like many, love blacks, browns and deep reds for this season, I decided to mix up it up and look out for a few softer shades, and hit the jackpot.
The cream trench coat is a must, simple and chic, but the pink coat, she’s my favourite. Pairing it with a pink handbag, I’d be giving off Umbridge vibes, but I’m okay with that!
Charity shop – Next Knitwear £2 New with tags
I love a dusty Rose pink, especially with black jeans or LBD
Lily Morgan £5 (everything five pounds.com)
A simple black cotton jumper with glitter trim jumper, jazzes up the one of the must haves for this season. This jumper is so warm and fuzzy, it’s become a new favourite
Old Navy £5 (everything 5 pounds.com)
I bought this long cream jumper about 3 sizes to big. It is huge and just hangs off me, it’s so soft and just the right thickness. Not really one to wear out as it is so baggy, but at home with some fluffy socks is just perfect.
This Hound tooth dress is perfect for winter. Possibly even a comfy Christmas day look?
And once I saw the dress, I just had to buy the skirt!
Vaseline Intensive care Cocoa Radiant
Body lotion 400ml £3.99
I have dry and sensitive skin, with eczema which flairs up more in the cooler months. This lotion helps to sooth and moisturize my skin without leaving it stinging or feeling greasy.
Poundland Lipscrub ‘Mint to be’ £1
Nothing worse that chapped lips, especially when rocking a dark lip. Pounlands Lipscrub smells, and tastes great, and works just as well as names brands.
NYX Midnight Muse £3.99
I picked up this lipstick thinking it was black, but it is actually a deep navy. Not a shade I’ve worn before but definalty one I’ll be trying this season.
Maybelline Vivid matte Liquid £7.99 (TK Maxx)
20 matte shades for £7.99, that equals 0.39p each. Bargain! Plus all the shades are beautiful, the bright purples and orange may be a little tricky to pull off but I’ll do my best!
Keep an eye out for my vivid matte Lip challenge later this month
