The Autumnal Transition

It is now officially Autumn! …Well it began yesterday but this is our first post since. So obviously as Autumn has begun, what better way to start it than by sharing with you our favorite way to spend the cooler season with a few our favorite products?

Burgundy. Who can talk about Autumn and not mention the color burgundy? (Answer: You can’t) We just find this color popping up everywhere! But it is a great color on absolutely everyone,scarves, tops and beanies. If you don’t have something burgundy in your wardrobe at least make sure you have something of the shade in your vanity. We recommend this matte Barry M shade in Crush. It such a gorgeous dark red and it’s matte, so adds that extra texture to a simple everyday look. Also, we find ourselves reaching for this blush much more in the Autumn time, it’s not your typical plum shade but it does add a gorgeous flush of dark pink and luminosity which we love in Autumn. Also, going back to the matte theme, the Revlon Sultry balm is a lovely bold lip color which we think is great for the day or night. As it is matte that also means it stays put all day and is a color that compliments most outfits. It’s a deep, dark, mysterious color we absolutely adore and is possibly my second favorite thing about Autumn.

Okay, so obviously we couldn’t say that was first because who can have dark evenings without a lit candle or two? The Yankee candles are some of our favorites as they have a great range of strong scents to suit almost anyone. A lit candle paired with a Lush bath bomb is simply bliss. If you don’t have time for a bath or don’t have a bath, a face mask is also a great way to unwind. A great one from Lush for acne prone skin is the Mask of Magnaminty from Lush, if you like the smell of mint chocolate you’ll definitely like the scent of this, or if you want something more uplifting the Cup  O’Coffee is a better choice. The best thing about these two is that unlike most of the Lush face masks, these don’t have to be kept in the fridge.

So who else loves the cosy nights in? Sipping hot chocolate whilst wrapped up warm on the sofa with a good book or the latest episode of your favorite series on netflix, with the face mask softening your skin as your favorite Yankee candle gently whispers to you…

  1. I love that Max Factor blush, I have the same one and I use it all year round because it gives such a natural pink/mauve tinge to my cheeks! This post is kind of making me want it to still be warm and cozy weather here in Australia. Great post xox
