What is this face?? 


The camel coat seems to be on trend this autumn. I have seen a lot of people wearing them both girls and boys. This coat is from New Look, it's not too thick and not to thin just the right coat for this season. There is something about a camel coat that can instantly make an outfit look dressed up and sophisticated, whether it's day to day at the office or for an evening out. I paired the coat with a Black Jumper Dress from MissGuided. It is perfect for the colder months, you can just throw it on with some tights and boots and you look dressed up with minimal effort. The gold zip on this dress adds a little something different to a plain black dress. I also put on my very faithful Black Suede Knee High Boots that I have had for a few years now. They are so easy to walk in and go with everything. The little heel adds a bit of height which I love because I am only 5ft3. Unfortunately these boots aren't sold anymore but there are very similar versions around. Im thinking of investing in some over the knee boots, I love them so much, I just don't know whether to go for flat ones of heeled ones, hmm what do you reckon?


Hope you have enjoyed this quick outfit post! Look how pretty the autumn leaves are! Everything looks so pretty in autumn.

Much love,

I am a big fan of Urban Decay so when I was looking for a new foundation in Debenhams I had a little look at their counter. I was looking for a full coverage foundation, something that would last all day (or all night). I was stuck between the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation and the Too Face Born This Way Foundation. I eventually opted for the All nighter foundation and I was not disappointed. I picked up the shade 3.5, the sales lady tried out a few different shades on me but I went for the darker of the bunch because I tend to lighten my face when I apply concealer.



The next day I wore it to work and it stayed on my face practically all day. I rarely get this from a foundation, I don't know if it's because I always (annoyingly) touch my face or whether it's because I haven't set it right. I would say the formula is medium to full coverage. For the day time I use a light layer and for the night time, or days I want to look extra glam I apply a fuller coverage. The sales assistant did advise me that the foundation oxidises when you apply it so it goes slightly darker. I would definitely agree with this, so bare this in mind when choosing your shade. It is slightly dark for my skin tone but like I said earlier I brighten my face up with a light concealer so it balances it out.

Overall this is the perfect full coverage foundation for me. I have always been a bit scared of full coverage due to my dry skin type. However this doesn't make my face look cakey and the lasting power is amazing, I would highly recommend!

Much love,

1. Photography Soft Box Lights

I have wanted some of these lights for a while but I have never took the plunge and actually purchased them, this has been because natural lighting has worked fine for me. I think now that it is becoming darker natural lighting is hard to find especially when I get in from work. I think these lights will come in use because I struggle to find good lighting at the best of times, so if I have lights I won't need to worry.

2. Pugicorn Pyjama's! 

How CUTE!? Pugicorn pjs! A mixture between a pug and a unicorn on comfy pjs, what else could you want?

3. Over the Knee Boots

How amazing are these boots! They would look so sexy with jeans, or a dress, I love the jumper dress look. The heel is slightly high for me it would definitely be an occasion boot. No matter how you wear these shoes you would feel like the ultimate queen.

4. Mac Strobe Cream

Again this is another item I have wanted to purchase for a while. I love the dewy skin look, I think it will be good primer to hydrate my dry skin.



5. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

I've heard so many amazing things about these powders. I already have the Hourglass bronzer and I absolutely love it so I am sure I will love this too. From the reviews I've read and watched it makes the skin look so glowy and youthful.

6. Ariana Grande Sweet Like Candy Perfume

I was in superdrug last week when I came across this perfume. It was sitting oh so pretty next to a big cardboard cut out of the beautiful Ariana, and of course I had to have a little test. Well... it is bloody gorgeous I loved the scent straight away. I think you can really tell if you like a perfume if you walk away and still get wifts of it later on in the day and think "emmm I smell so good" (this is what happened).

7. BECCA Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year you will know Jaclyn Hill, and you will know her famous highlight 'Champagne Pop'. I have aways wanted to try this as I have seen and heard great things about it. Jaclyn is an absolute beauty and every makeup item she recommend's I can't help but want to try. I would also like to try the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Face Palette.

8. Ted Baker Leather Bag

I am really in need of plain black everyday bag, but one that will last well and feels a little bit special without breaking the bank.

9. Mermaid Blanket

I have seen these blankets all over Instagram and I really really want one. My all time favourite Disney Character is The Little Mermaid and I feel like this blanket would bring back that memory and make me feel like the mermaid I have always wanted to be.


Do you have any birthday present ideas?  My birthday is the 6th of November and I seriously can't believe another year has passed! Time goes by so fast and it is so crazy. I think it is important to live everyday to the fullest and work hard at what you love doing. 

Thanks for reading.

Last weekend I had a family trip away to Devon and I had such an amazing time. I hadn't been to Devon since I was a little girl, I used to go on caravan holidays every year. We stayed at a very traditional british BnB called, 'The Old Vicarage'. It was a very old fashioned house in the middle of a little old fashioned british town. When we arrived Friday afternoon we dropped off our bags and went to meet other family members in another hotel. A few white wine spritzers later and I was ready for food so we went to a pub down the road. It was right on the sea front and it as really lovely. On Saturday we woke up to a lovely breakfast, a full english with a pot of tea! We spent Saturday being tourist looking around Torquay and Babbacombe. We went down to the beach, walked around the shops and later went Go Karting. Unfortunaly, I lost, I am sore loser and I was very disappointed in myself but I got over it eventually. I also had candy floss!! I haven't had candy floss in the longest time. Myself and the family had a an amazing day I really didn't want to go home, but as always all good things have to come to an end. After a fun filled day we went back to our cute little BnB and had a quick change before heading out for another lovely meal (does anybody else's trips revolve around food!? haha). We made our way home Sunday morning after breakfast. It was definitely a long way to go for a weekend but it was worth it. Sometimes it's just nice to get away and forget about things. Life can get really stressful and it's so important to have fun and enjoy your life.








I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and it has inspired you to take time out from work and travel. Even if it is just where you live as there is so many amazing places that we forget about on our own doorstep.

A Weekend Trip to Devon

I have been so excited to finally do an Autumn Tag blog post! I think it's because it is really starting to feel like autumn now. I actually have on a wolly jumper and my comfy spotty pj bottoms that I come back to year after year. Bring on the dark nights and the hot chocolates!

1. What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
This would have to be the brown leaves on the floor and the dark nights. As soon as I see halloween decorations and pumpkins in the shops It makes me feel so homely inside. Maybe this is because I am a winter baby? I don't know what it is but I much prefer Autumn/Winter compared to the summer. I know a lot of people won't agree with me but there is just something about the autumn time that makes me feel very nostalgic. Also I think it is because I have lot of things to look forward too (halloween, bonfire night, birthday and CHRISTMAS). 

2. What is your favourite Fall scent?
Hmmmm I think there could be multiple but I think its going to have to be the smell of a roast dinner cooking on a sunday after. I know this is probably a bit strange as most people probably think it smells like sprouts haha. For me a Sunday roast signifies stodgy food that warms you up so there is nothing better that knowing you have a roast in the oven when its cold outside. In terms of candle scent it would definitely be gingerbread!

3. What is your favourite Autumn colour?
My favourite autumn colour to look at would be burnt orange, obvious I know, but what over colour would you chose!? Burnt orange is the colour of autumn because it reminds me of the leaves on the ground and pumpkins at halloween. My favourite colour to wear would be black or a dark red (wine).

4. What is your favourite Fall drink?

This is my favourite drink all year round, but even more so in the fall! It is a good, old, classic cup of tea! Nothing better than a long day at work or being out in the cold and coming back to cup of tea and a biscuit. It's the little things in life that make me happy. 

5. What TV show, new or old, are you looking forward to this Fall?
Im not really sure on this question, I have started watching American Horror Story which has been good so far so I'm looking forward to watching that. I also love watching Hocus Pocus, one of the best fall films.

6. What is your favourite Fall fashion trend?

Polo necks. I hate, I repeat, I hate being cold! Urgh nothing worse, so I love wearing a long sleeve jumper/top that will keep me warm even without a coat. Anyone who knows me knows that I am always cold (I am that person). I also like wearing skirts with tights. Im thinking of getting a tartan skirt this year, or maybe a mustard one.

7. What is your favourite frugal Autumn activity?

Does putting on pjs and wrapping up on the couch in front of the TV count as an activity? Because that is my favourite thing to do. I'm looking forward to blogging, experimenting with fall fashion and autumnal makeup looks. Of course there is the classic pumpkin carving and watching fireworks on bonfire night as well. 

8. What is your favourite makeup look come autumnal weather?
I like dark lips, the cherry reds and the dark purples. I also like that it is okay to be pale. I am not the most tanned person so I love embracing my paleness. Once the Morphe 35o palette comes back into stock I am hoping to order it and try some orangey make up looks.

Thanks for reading, it has definitely made me feel very excited for the Atumun!
