CURRENT AUTUMN FAVOURITES

I cannot believe how fast 2014 has gone, like, wait, it's almost November? I'm not too sorry to see this year go, as it's not been the greatest year for me (but that's another post for another time). However, I always get excited for Autumn/ Fall, as I think it's the most relaxing, cosy and colourful season to see in the end of the year. And you know what happens at the end of the year, right? IT'S CHRISTMASSSSS!
I'm loving seeing all your Autumn inspired posts, and without further ado, here are a few things that I've been loving this season...


   Candles.

I LOVE candles but I tend to stay away from them in the Summer, as I'm only keen on a handful of floral/fruity scents. I personally adore sweet/spicy scents so the seasonal Yankee Candles are right up my street. I go crazy for everything cinnamon/gingerbread/pumpkin during the Autumn/Winter (coffee especially) so it went without saying I would love this candle. I actually got bought this as a present, but you can find it here



   Lush.

Now I know you've probably already seen more than enough Lush posts, but I couldn't surely do an Autumn favourites without giving them a mention? I adore Lush all year round but they're at their best in the Autumn and Winter. As I've quite a few summery bath bombs to use, I was going to wait to purchase their Christmas/Halloween stuff, but I've finally deemed it impossible to leave empty handed. I picked up Candy MountainWizardSparkly Pumpkin and Santa's Lip Scrub. It goes without saying that these all smell incredible and I can't wait to see what they look like in the bath.

Autumn lipsticks.

It's hard to find drugstore lipsticks in Autumn colours, in my opinion. I searched high and low to try find deep colours which aren't too 'pinky'. My favourite finds were the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Satin - New York Scene and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 477 - Black Cherry. Unfortunately my awful lighting and camera skills meant I couldn't photograph Black Cherry, which is my favourite,but this is what it looks like on...


And here's New York Scene...

Up the high end, my favourite find as of yet is MAC - Living Legend . I also love the Nightmoth Lip Liner to give it a bit more definition and depth. (WARNING: This is a pretty dark colour, darker than it appears on the swatch. I'm a pale skin tone so these colours tend to suit me, but if you don't like very deep purples, this might not be the one for you)



    Bedroom decor.



I love jazzing up my room to go with the seasons, and in the colder months I love fairy lights to give my room that cosy feel. I decided to hang little felt leaves from my lights this year, which I think look super cute, and popped this little stag head on my dresser. Both these things were really inexpensive and practically effortless!


Body.



 Last but not least, I'm loving scented body butters and keeping my skin hydrated, and this Ginger Sparkle Butter by The Body Shop smells amazing!
