Nanshy Brushes.


Selection of brushes here*.

I can't believe how late I've left it to blog about these, I've had them in my collection for just over a month now!  These were part of the goody bags at day 2 of BLFW, which was really exciting as I've been meaning to treat myself to some new makeup brushes for a while now (a few weeks ago my beloved Real Techniques stippling brush started to fall apart!)

Navy Jumpsuit


I really love jumpsuits as an alternative to a dress for more formal events, and this one is perfect!  The deep blue colour is lovely and the material is just stretchy enough that it clings in all the right places.

A Glimpse Of Autumn.

Well, it's most definitely, well and truly Autumn. Exeter seems to vary between two extremes-torrential downpour and blinding sunshine, which makes it very difficult to dress appropriately!  Jess from Mismatched Knitwear tagged me to do this Autumn themed post, so here you go, I hope you enjoy reading!

What do you love most about Autumn?
I love the change in weather-colder weather means I can wear lots of cosy jumpers and lounge around in my onesie!  I also love taking Atlas for walks in our local woodland, the yellow and orange leaves are stunning (see above photo).
What’s your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?I used to love Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha but they took it off the menu (yes, I am aware I can still order it!) so now I'm loving Costa's Honeycomb and Cream Hot Chocolate, it's amazing.
What accessories do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
ALL OF THE ABOVE.  Exeter is cold, and windy, and rainy, so I usually go for my thick tartan scarf, military boots and teal mittens.
What’s your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I like more chilled out music, but that said, I do go for house music sometimes, it motivates me to walk faster,especially when it's cold and dark.
What candle scents will you be burning this season?
I don't have any candles down in Exeter, but I do have the next best thing, B&BW Mahogany Teakwood room spray!  It leaves my room smelling like an Abercrombie store-addictive.
What’s your favourite perfume for this time of year?
I like something a bit heavier than my summer scents. That said, I've recently been wearing Philosophy's Amazing Grace a lot!
Favourite make up look?
My favourite look is matte foundation, a hint of dark pinky red blush, winged black liner and a purple berry lip.
What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
I'm looking forward to watching lots of Downton Abbey and cuddles with Atlas on the sofa!
I’m tagging you all to take part plus these girls:

Autumn/Winter Lookbook


Here's my second YouTube video for this week, and it's a lookbook!  These seem to go down really well on my channel, so although they do take a bit of time and effort to film and put together, I really enjoy making them.  I decided to go for more of a mix of clothes for this one-two casual and two dressy outfits.

Oxygenetix Foundation.


Oxygenetix Foundation*-£45 (here)

I got my hands on this foundation quite a long time ago, and since then I've basically used it on a daily basis, yet I haven't managed to get a review written up yet!  I am finally writing this up because this is definitely a foundation worth taking note of.

I Feel Like A Princess.


When I opened a package from Chi Chi to discover this in it, I let out a little gasp, it's the perfect princess dress!  As a massive fan of Disney, I have a bit of a soft spot for anything princess-related, so I couldn't wait to try this on.

Lush Halloween and Christmas Haul!


So after having some issues with editing my videos I finally managed to get some done this weekend at home!  First up of the two I filmed is a Lush haul featuring a few of their new seasonal bits.  As these videos were supposed to go up weeks ago, I'm gonna put them both up this weekend, so I can film some new ones for upcoming weeks (otherwise these will be ridiculously out of date!)

Burberry SS15 makeup.


Final part to my Fragrance Direct SS15 makeup looks and I think I've saved the best for last!  The Burberry SS15 makeup looked amazing on the models, so obviously I just had to give it a go for myself, and I can confirm it's very easy to replicate.

Tartan Scarf



This giant scarf is another thing I picked up with my Quiz voucher, and now that the weather's a bit colder, I love throwing it on under a jacket for some extra warmth.

Honor NYC SS15 makeup.


For part 2 of my Fragrance Direct SS15 makeup looks, I went for something a little bit more colourful, inspired by the thick bold blue liner at the Honor NYC show!
