Love Autumn!

Just a quick post as I need to share my excitement for Autumn!!! I mean I love summer and the long hot days, bbqs, flip flops and sunbathing but there is something comforting about Autumn and now it is October I feel that autumn has really arrived.

How lovely is this photo montage I found on Pinterest!?
How can you not love:

The changing colours of the leaves on the trees
Cups of hot chocolate with cream
Fluffy socks and blankets
Big jumpers and boots
Pumpkin carving
Crisp air
Cosy nights in
Baking cakes
The fact that Christmas is not too far away!!!!!
So to prep yourselves for the autumnal months ahead here are some things you can do to help with the transition. (This post also is a bit of a wishlist too - enjoy)
Makeup - Switch up your makeup to suit the autumnal months, the simplest way is probably with lip colour - stick to dark nudes, berrys, plums and burnt red shades. Here are my top 3 shades for Autumn, they are all by MAC and are all shades I wished I owned unless Santa wants to come early?
 MAC - Velvet Teddy My sister actaully owns this lipstick and she loves it, it is a nude pink/beige and is supposedly what Kylie Jenner wears to create her '90s lip look'. It looks lovely on my sister, and maybe she'll let me wear it now and again, Its a perfect Autumn nude shade.

MAC- Rebel How beautiful does this shade look, perfect for Autumn, I have seen it described as deep, fuschia berry. I would love to purchase this one and give it a go.

MAC - FrankNFurter So this collection looks amazing, it is a new 21-piece range dedicated to the cult movie 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' and this blood red lipstick is one of the stand out pieces for me. It is to be launched in the UK in time for Halloween apparantly - and if you've not seen it then check it out at MAC Cosmetics - Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection.
Nail polish - shop around for some gorgeous new colours, I have seen opi have a great collection called 'Nordic' and they have some beautiful shades in the collection, worth checking out!

Here are my favourites:
- Ice bergers and fries - A chocolate light brown shade.
- My voice is a little norse - A silver glitter polish that would look great to wear over Christmas.
- Thank glogg its Friday - A gorgeous berry/wine shade you could wear throughout Autumn/Winter.
-Viking in a vintner vonderland - A lovely deep purple shade.

They all look like beautiful shades and how brillant are the names? :) certainly on my wishlist. 
Clothes - Dig out those scarves and wooly jumpers and boots, get snugg and stay warm whilst looking cute!
In particular I am loving River Island pieces this month, they have some lovely items in stock ready for the colder months, including tartan scarves, beautiful bobble hats in a range of colours, and some gorgeous over size jumpers and knit wear!

Red tartan blanket scarf at £15.00 Perfect with jeans boots and  leather jacket.

Black Pom Pom hat at £13.00 This hat comes in 10 different colours! Looks lovely and stylish and will also keep you warm in Winter.

Grey Tunic at £40.00 Love this jumper, easy to wear with some leggings, boots and an oversized bag! Great to see you through A/W.
Candles - In the Autumn/Winter fill your home and rooms with lovely warm scents, I have a love for candles and now the nights are drawing in there is nothing better than lighting your favourite candle to fill your rooms with the smells of cinamon, spiced apple, firewood etc..
My favourite brand at the moment is a candle I spotted in Cornwall called St Eval Candle Company and they smell amazing, I have Sandalwood which is a blend of 'warm musk and woody scents' I love it as it lasts forever, burns evenly and easily fills the room with its lovely fragrance. If you love candles please check them out!
