TAG: Autumn 2014

[Tag and photo from: Makeup-Pixi3]

As you know, I like starting my seasonal tags and with Autumn being my favourite season of the year, I thought I'd write a new one for 2014. If you're reading this, you're tagged! If you tag me in the tweet when you share it, I'll RT it too :D

1. Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
Toffee Nut Latte

2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I like wearing boots all year round. But I like hats for outside in the autumn, plus it helps bad hair days!

3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I really don't listen to different music depending on the time of year, so it would be generally rock / metal music.

4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
Lush's Karma perfume is what I have been using, its a bit heavier so not keen on using it in the summer.

5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
Yankee Candle's Black Cherry, it's my autumn candle.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
It's not too cold, nor too hot. I like the distinct seasons we get in the UK.

7. Favourite makeup look?
Berry lipstick, darker colours are more wearable during the Autumn/Winter.

8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Wedding anniversary, and not being too hot.

Tag: Beautiful Blog Award

I was nominated by BeautyIsInTheEyeOfTheBeholder to do this tag.

1. If you could live anywhere in the world (anywhere!) where would it be?
I'd like to travel to various places but I like living where I do, although a much nicer, bigger, grander house would be nice.

2. How did you find the blogging world?
It all started in 2009 with me looking for a version on Urban Decay's Primer Potion for the face, then I fell down the rabbit hole of all kinds of blogs.

3. Is there a part of your beauty routine you would like to improve?
I think I could do with an eye cream of sorts, more of a preventative thing really.

4. What is your first memory?
My first good memory is being at playgroup with my friend and playing on this, what seemed a gigantic wooden slide.

5. If you could do any job you wanted what would it be?
I've always wanted to do a job where I was helping people.

6. What is the best part of your life right now?
Living with and seeing my best friend, my husband every day.

#2014BloggerChallenge - New Beginnings

New beginnings, I think this prompt is because it is time for going back to school, collage or university. None of these apply to me so I will be looking at it more as a new season. Autumn is almost upon us here in England.

"Worrying won't stop the bad stuff from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good" - Very true, and everyone should be able to enjoy the positive and good experiences in life.

#2014BloggerChallenge - Dynamic Duo

A 'dynamic duo' I have been using recently would be the ELF Stipple Brush with the ELF HD Liquid Blush. I find a cream or liquid blush really needs a stipple brush to apply it, to give a blended look which isn't too opaque. With the HD Blush it is easy to be heavy handed and the stipple brush only picks up a small amount of product and makes it easy to apply.

Wednesday Wants: Soap and Glory - Body

These are the body products I would like to try, I have tried the body lotions before and they sink in quickly and don't leave me feeling sticky. Which is what I want from a body lotion. The sugar scrubs are really good as well, they are thick enough to feel like they are doing something and they are sticky enough to stay stuck to you so you can exfoliate.

1) Butter Yourself Body Lotion - £10
2) The Rightous Butter Lotion - £10
3) Daily Smooth Body Lotion - £10
4) Butter Yourself Body Cream - £10.50
5) Sugar Crush Body Butter Cream -£10.50
6) Orangeasm Body Butter - £10
7) Smoothie Star Body Scrub - £8
8) Scrub Em' and Leave Em' Body Scrub - £8

Have you tried any of these? What are they like?

I like a lot of music and so being able to say which song or artist is my favourite. I had a look at Spotify and these are my current most played artists:


A Perfect Circle


 Nine Inch Nails

System of a Down

Generally I would say I like rock / metal music but there are others I like, especially from past decades. 

How about you? Could you easily answer the question?

Wednesday Wants: Lush

A long time ago, I used to do a post called 'Wednesday Wants' on my blog, however it seems to have gotten a little manic over there and so thought I might like resurrect the theme over here. It won't be every week but now and then.

Sakura Bath Ballistic - Now I think at some point I may have already tried this but that will have been 4-5 years ago now.
Choccy Egg Bath Ballistic - Much better than an actual chocolate egg!
Bunny Bubble Bar - Very cute.
Granny Takes a Dip Bath Ballistic - This looks very colourful and something I haven't tried before.
Inhale Exhale Bath Ballistic - Something else new I want to try out.
