Makeup & Cosmetics Haul!

Happy Monday Everyone! Just kidding, I know Monday's are the hardest day of the week after what feels like the shortest weekend ever but just think... only 4 more days 'till Friday! So to add a little cheer to my moody Monday, I thought I'd do a little post for you all. Recently, I've had an influx of new makeup and I'm over the moon because I've been dying for some. This is all the makeup I received for my birthday a few weeks ago which I have been using every single day...

Makeup bag - Mary Quant
Setting spray - Urban Decay

Naked 2 Pallette- Urban Decay

Sets - Both Benefit

Mac Lipstick in shade 'Diva'
Posie Balm - Benefit

Left - 'New York Night'
Right - 'Riding Hood'
Both by Tanya Burr available at Superdrug

Eyebrow pencil - Topshop
High brow - Benefit
Liquid eyeliner - Rimmel 

Also, I really want to show you this gorgeous cropped knit jumper I bought at the weekend in Leeds from a shop called Ark. I love this shop but we don't have one in Newcastle so I took the advantage to pick up this gorgeous little number. It's so cute and comfy - just perfect for Autumn. It was around £13/£14 I think reduced from £17 ish as they had a student offer on... I couldn't resist!

The Autumn Tag


Aaaah, Autumn is finally here! Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons of the year fashion wise so to mark the occasion, here's my 'Autumn Tag'
Also, I'm so sorry I've been neglecting my blog- I've been overly busy with college, work and learning how to drive! However, I'll try my best to post regularly!

1. Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?  
Honestly, it's anything warm for me but I do love a good caramel macchiato or caramel latte. I do enjoy a good caramely (is that a word??) drink!

2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
Not the most fashionable or chic, but I love my beanies. They just keep my little ears so warm which is essential for me as I really feel the cold. I always wear a snood too- so comfy!

3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
It doesn't really differentiate from the music I listen to any other time of the year but I'll listen to the odd JB Christmas song every now and then.
 
4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I am in loooooove with the new scent from Jo Malone. It's called "Wood Sage and Sea Salt" and it's just a gorgeous scent for the AW seasons. It's so crisp and just smells of forests but in a good way?? It's at the top of my Christmas list.

5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
I don't really burn candles as my Mam thinks I'll set the house on fire but I do have some smelly sticks that are wintery (idk what's with my English today) such as cinnamon and nutmeg.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
The fashion! I love big coats, boots, deep colours, hats, scarves...everything! You can just be so versatile with your fashion in Autumn and there is so much more of a range to choose from. It's fab!

7. Favourite makeup look?
Deep, dark makeup. I like to go with a lot of bronze (to hide my ridiculously pale face, of course), brown, smoky eyes and dark lips. I'm loving the lipstick 'Diva' by Mac at the moment. It's a gorgeous, deep red colour and I'm not usually a lipstick person but it looks so good on.
 
8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
The nights in- sitting cuddled up to my boyfriend, wrapping up in a duvet on the sofa and watching TV/films with a cuppa and snacks. It's such a cute season.

Have a fab Autumn Everyone!

Alexander Wang X H&M

Oh my gosh I can't believe this is actually happening! Alexander Wang is partnering up with H&M to create a collection that will be released on November 6th! I can't wait!! I think I almost wet myself with excitement when I found out. I love Alexander Wang's designs but I've never been able to afford anything of his so for this to happen makes me ecstatic. However, there's only 4 images of the collection floating about the internet but that's enough to get me excited. I'll be heading straight down to H&M on the 6th for sure. Here's the pictures of the upcoming collab including an image of Rihanna rocking a co-ord from the unreleased collection.
