Autumn Favourites

These past few weeks have been spent getting my head around the fact that summer is over, Autumn is firmly here and my favourites probably reflect that.

Skincare.

Aveeno Moisturiser. I have very dry skin – my hands and feet and elbows especially suffer. When the weather turns a bit colder that’s it. I need to moisturise like crazy. This Aveeno moisturiser has sat a little unloved on the summer months, but at the moment I am thoroughly enjoying slathering it on an night and waking up with super soft hands and heels.

Beauty.

Beauty Blender. Where have you been all my life? I remember only a year or so ago I didn’t even use make up brushes to apply make up. My fingers did all, and I couldn’t work out how even else’s make up looked so much more refined. Now I know – Tools! I love love love this clever little sponge. I almost don’t care that it was £18 for a sponge. Almost.

I bought mine from Space N.K.

Clothing.

Sneaky Sneakers. I am quite often a bit guilty about my unplanned purchases. But the two pairs of Sneakers I bought from New Look a couple of months back have been great. I haven’t lived in them, but I have worn them A LOT.

And now I am eyeing up these beauts from H&M

 

Homeware.

Space. This is maybe an odd one but we just sold our massive sofa and at the moment I am loving having so much space in the living room.

Candles. Autumn means candle joy. My lovely work friends gave me a delicious smelling fig candle from Oliver Bonas which I have been limiting my burning of. Because I love it so much! And my gorgeous friend Charlotte gave me a set of the White Company’s winter Scent tea lights. Delicious smells all around my home at the moment.

Wardrobe Update

I have been (as usual) looking forward to the start of Autumn. I love laying, I love knitwear and socks and the excuse to wear a scarf.

Also by early August I and my feet are bored of flip flops and sandals – give me boots, sneakers and slippers.

There are a few things I already have my eye on and a few things I already have that I am looking forward to wearing this Autumn.

I love a pair of sneakers, or two and added these tweedy ones to my collection recently. (New Look)

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle for Autumn winter… I certainly do, and picked up these comfies from New Look for a bargain price.

I am currently hoping that Dotty P get these in in the Tall range…

And lastly for now, although I have no need for a new coat and I would definitely spill hot chocolate down it on it’s first outing I am in love with thiswinter-coat-hm.

What have you got your eye on at the moment?
