Autumn Clothes Edit

Autumn is my favourite time of the year not only is the weather all pretty, shops have got autumnal scented candles & window displays all popping up & Starbucks of course have their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte drink back. It's safe to say that this girl loves autumn! 

As we are in Autumn now I felt like my wardrobe needed a bit of a re-visit I mean out with the old & in with the new.......So I recently hit the wonderful highstreet and picked up a few things that I of course want to share with you so here are my current Autumn Edit Clothes! I've gone around and bought different things from Primark, River Island, Topshop, Office ect. I would just like to quickly point out that I haven't gone and bought all of this in one go.....



Topshop Borg Jacket - Everywhere I look I've seen SO many people rocking these denim borg lined jackets and I just needed one in my life, it's the perfect 'jacket/coat' for the autumn as it's a lil bit chilly but not too chilly that you need a whacking great fleece lined parka to chuck on. I've never bought a denim jacket like this before but I really REALLY like it, it's very snug & pretty much goes with anything in my wardrobe.


A girl can never have enough shoes.......I came across these gorgeous boots from River Island they are just plain black but have this lovely zip detail to them & are velvety. These are honestly the most comfortable heels ever, they're nice and comfortable to wear all day. £40

I'm a converse kinda girl so I just bought some short plain white converses from Office......Converse are the most comfortable and practical shoes ever. These are leather so the colour won't fade! I love nothing more than squeaky clean pristine converse haha.


What's autumn without a Jumper? I bought a fair few this month my excuse for two are "It's for work...." (biggest lie ever ;) ) One is a simple plain white jumper, which I didn't take a photo of as my camera can't seem to focus on white, it's simple, plain and goes with everything. The other I adore the colour of as it's a very British mustard yellow and is just the most comfortable snuggliest thing ever this isn't for work but more for the autumnal hint to add to my wardrobe

I then picked up this other one it's batwing and is a mixed black and white (comes off as grey), it's got these three quarter length sleeves and just feels like I'm wearing a fluffy blanket around me. A few people have been asking me where I got this from so it must be a popular, and that was from New Look, this one I have worn to work and a lot of my work colleges are after it hahaha.



I have a really small pea head as my friends and family call it, so hats are always a meh as nothing ever really fits my lil head....beanies however are my best friend again I'm loving my very autumnal mustard yellows this autumn and came across this super cute and warming beanie from Primark, it's a chunky knit beanie and has a little pom pom thing on the top it's just so snug and the perfect colour. That was only £2

Super cosy tights from Primark are the best....and yes I'm happy to admit I will even wear these bad boys in the summer....fleece lined and super comfy, you can't go wrong......these tights are honestly the best tights EVER your legs feel like they are in a blanket. I always pick up a pack of these every time I go into Primark.

It's safe to say my wardrobe is now more autumnal than ever. I can't tell you how HAPPY I am that it's now finally autumn, roll on the pumpkin carving and cosy autumn nights in, in front of the telly.

Lush Haul | Halloween 2016

Autumn & Lush.....what more could I wish for?

When I was having a lil mooch on my instagram feed I saw that Lush had brought out some very new and exciting Halloween products, I just had to get my hands on my favourite bubble bar ever (Sparkly Pumpkin) along with some other lush goodies all of course halloween themed. I'm so impressed and happy with this years collection that I of course wanted to share it with you and share my thoughts on the bits and pieces I've bought from their new and exciting range. 

Lush always bring out the best cosmetics and shower products that the highstreet have to offer, great quality products at cheap and cheerful prices. Let's face it they have become gradually over time the face of the bath and body care world if not the beauty industry, keeping all things natural as possible they really just want to stick with the best quality products at the best prices. 

This years collection is packed with lots of pleasing to the eye products including everything from massage bars to the famous Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream, I couldn't love this years range anymore if I tried.

I bought:

Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream along with the Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb, Pumpkin Bath Bomb, Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar, Boo Bath Melt & finally the gorgeous Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb.

All of which I'm super excited about dropping in my bath and waiting to see the plain basic water, transform into a bath of pure wonderment.

Lord Of Misrule Shower Cream - Packed with cracked black pepper & uplifting patchouli it will really help wake you in the mornings, I love the shower creams & gels from Lush, this one I ALWAYS look forward to it coming back and I know my dad does too.

Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb - Again same smell, just in a bath bomb....this one starts of a green and then magically transforms into a deep pool of red/purple, If you have a cold this is one bath bomb you've GOT to try it's honestly so relaxing and it's even packed with popping candy.

Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb - I love the idea behind this bath bomb, apparently Lush came up with the idea of creating a bath bomb that would show how each leaf changes during the autumn, it's honestly one of the most prettiest bath bombs ever, deeply relaxing and uplifting you can't go wrong with this one.

Boo Bath Melt - LOOK WHO CUTE!!! Isn't this the most adorable thing you've ever seen, it's a little ginger and cocoa butter bath melt that doubles up as a bubble bar too apparently, It's quite a sweet ginger and not too over powering.

Pumpkin Bath Bomb - This one does look like a basket ball but it's the best basket ball you've ever seen or smelt, this one smells like a really sweet and comforting Pumpkin Pie or like cookies & cream it's honestly incredible and goes like a deep blood red/orange, will warn might never want to leave your bath again after trying this.

Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar - Now were do I begin with this.....this is my all time FAVOURITE Lush smell it's just the nicest and most comforting smelling bubble bar ever, not only is it adorable it crumbles up really nicely and makes the best bubbles, This bubble bar is packed with a ton of lime & grapefruit oil........sweet, scrumptious and adorable. I couldn't just leave it there.

Sparkly Pumpking Bubble Bar is the one bubble bar that I stock up on the most as I don't want Lush to ever discontinue making it, it's famous and for a bloomin' good reason.

All in all Lush have well and truly pulled it out of the bag again this year!

Have you tried Lush's new Halloween products out yet?

Not only does everyday seem to get more prettier & more autumnal, Starbucks have finally got their Pumpkin Spice Latte back & Lush have got their halloween collection coming!

Today I thought I'd share with you a few of my favourite things about autumn or rather things that I'm either looking forward to or just love doing around this time of the year in general.

1. Nice long Lush filled baths - I'm talking a bath bomb, bubble bar & maybe even a cheeky lil bath melt - the full works.

2. Shop getting their autumnal candles - Me and my work mate Charlie found an UH-MA-ZING apple scented one in Clinton Cards the other day.

3. Hocus Pocus

5. Cosy nights in

6. Chunky knitwear and any excuse to wear a warm coat

7. Autumnal makeup change

8. Homesense have all their autumn and halloween range in *HELL TO THE YEAH face*

GlossyBox | September

A few reviews of this months GlossyBox have been shared already on the interweb but I thought I'd share my thoughts too today hahaha. I wasn't really a huge fan of last months GlossyBox as 1. I didn't get the palette I wanted (they did however send me some 'sorry it's our fault' products) instead they sent me something entirely different 2. I wasn't a huge fan of the products that were in last months GlossyBox so I didn't feel all too happy to want to share it with you guys......but......This months box I may have fallen head over heels in love with. Not only is there a cheeky lil Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (BEST MASCARA EVER) they even popped in the missed palette from last months box, GlossyBox really do know how to make a girl happy.

I love that this months box is a gorgeous cherry red and that all of the products in this months box have been picked by the Beauty Director at Red Magazine. It's such an awesome collab and I adore everything in this months box.

Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask - If there is one thing I flipping love it's a good facemasks and well if it says that it gives skin 120 hours worth of hydration it sounds like a no brainer for me to sit here and type this post whilst wearing this somewhat ghostly looking mask hahaha. This HydroGel masks locks moisture into the skin & just feels amazing. I'm a bit sad that it's only mask per pack but it's really really good.

Rodial Smokey Eye Pen - Another gorgeous eye pen, if there is one thing I love it's a super sexy felin cat flick, and this promises to give a jet black smokey eye look, great as an eyeliner and I actually love the colour pay off on this, it literally glides on. I've got a feeling that it's going to be another one of them fool proof eyeliner pens. It's a gel so can easily be blended to create that ultimate smokey look or for a more everyday kinda look, it's a multi-look pen which I thinks awesome, because you can use it for a basic everyday cat flick or really hammer the gel pen and go out on the town with a super smokey eye. 

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm - I have SO many lip balms and lip products to get through so this really is the only thing I was a bit meh at when I saw it, don't get me wrong I love a good lip balm but I literally have about 15 different ones all dotted about my house that I need to use up, so here is another one to the ever growing pile. Although I do really like the smell of this lip balm.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - I may have done a lil squeal when I saw this in this months box. I frickin' adore this mascara if there is one mascara that I ALWAYS come back too it's this one, this or the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara are my two holy grail mascara, it adds SO much va va voom to my lashes and just gives that false lash effect without it being ott, It literally grips every single eyelash and pulls them right up, I just honestly adore this mascara. I can't wait to add this to my on the go makeup bag.

Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat - I do love a good top coat and this one claims to do a fair few things, it claims to be chip-proof & give a long-lasting finish. I've used Revlon Nail Varnishes before and the formula isn't too bad so I'm pretty excited to give a new top coat a whirl.

I also got a nice sample of a new facemask that the body shop have bought out too.

And that is everything I got in this months box, I'm actually really impressed and don't feel disappointed in anything I got in this months box, apart from the lip balm as I've got far too many to get through, but apart from that I'm super happy with this months box, I love the colour of the box, the products & pretty much everything!

What another awesome GlossyBox!
