Autumn Favourites

Hi everyone, I was going to write up this post a couple of weeks ago but a few of days before I was due to upload, I was very kindly nominated for the Liebster Award by Jasmine from Color U Bold, which you can read about here.  So as it's only just crept into Winter, I thought it would still be ok to do this post!

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I'm not one for doing monthly favourites posts, I just don't buy or try out enough items or products to warrant doing them, instead I like doing seasonal favourites.  So if you would like to read on further, I will show you a little selection of the things - beauty and non-beauty, that I've been loving over the last few months :-)

1. Autumn leaves, I just love watching leaves turn all the gorgeous red, orange and golden colours of the Autumn and walking through crisp freshly fallen leaves when it's starting to get a real chill in the air is just a little bit special!

2. Hot chocolate, I have a real love for this stuff, especially the ones from Costa, they honestly do the best hot chocolates I have ever had, gorgeous!

3. As you will all probably know by now, I LOVE Halloween and this year was no exception, I decorated my room, I managed to come up with some really fun ideas for future costumes and myself along with 2 of my best friends got invited to a fancy dress party for the first time in years, check out that post here.  So all in all, Halloween was a lot of fun this year and I can't wait for the next.

4. One of the new songs that I've been obsessed with lately is another one that I found on YouTube, it's be Lindsey Stirling and it's called Shatter Me.  It's not only an amazing piece of music (played by Lindsay), and a beautiful video, but the vocals sung by Lizzy Hale (of Halestorm), are really amazing, she has such a great voice.  Definitely one to (try to) sing along to!

5. Rimmel Brow This Way kit and setting gel.  Now I've never really been one for doing the brows, I never really saw the point and didn't feel like it made much of a difference. . . Until recently.  I started off just using a basic matte brown eyeshadow as the brown pencils always looked too dark and thick, but I still wasn't happy, so about 6 weeks ago, I picked up these two little treasures and what a huge difference they make!  I use these every time I do my makeup now and yes now I get it, the brows do make a difference, when they're done properly.

The little kit even comes with it's own spooly and angled brush to help perfect the look and the gel works brilliantly with the kit, to set everything in place, lovely!

6. Another beauty favourite this season, has been the Tanya Burr lipgloss in Aurora.  I originally bought 3 other shades from Tanya's collection back in the summer and although I wasn't initially impressed, I did persevered with them and now love having them in my makeup stash, click here to read my review.  But it wasn't until I bought this gorgeous shade that I really got excited about these glosses.  Aurora is the kind of shade you could wear for any occasion, with any outfit, any time of the year and it will still look beautiful!  To me, it's the perfect lip colour :-)

7. I just love re-watching old TV shows, Ally McBeal, Ghost Whisperer etc but Roswell was always one of my real favourites.  I've had the box set for absolutely ages maybe even a year but just never got round to watching it.  So I finally fished it out from the back of my cupboard a couple of months ago and been really enjoying watching them all over again.  It's such a great series, a great story, great characters and a cute love story too.

8. Another amazing song that I've been loving over the last few months, is from my favourite band, I think I've mentioned them a few times!!  (ok a lot!)  It's by Linkin Park and it's called A Line in the Sand, it's taken from the latest album The Hunting Party and Oh My Goodness, it's incredible!  If you like the kind of powerful music that makes you feel alive, full on rock vocals and some of the most astounding guitar riffs you'll ever hear, then you'll love this too :-)  Definitely worth a listen, trust me!

9. For the last of the beauty-related items, I recently picked up this hairbrush from Primarks, nothing too exciting, it's just a hairbrush!  I got it just to replace an older style one I originally got from Primarks last year that had started to wear out, they don't sell that one any more so I got this one instead and I have to say, it's really, really great.  The bristles don't snag at all and it always makes my hair feel silky smooth.  It doesn't work too well with damp hair but my Tangle Teeser sorts that out just fine and for only £1 you can't really complain.

10. This seasons bloggers:  This is just a little list of blogs that I've either found recently or been reading really regularly over the last few months, some new some old.  Either way, they're all well worth checking out.
