The First Day of Autumn.

Today we had a lovely family day out to Dunham Massey Hall, and although the English summer has been pretty chilly, it was the first day that I could feel the season had changed.
We went for a good long walk in the grounds, the air was crisp and the leaves were falling, and my very new coat had it's debut.
I absolutely love it, and I can tell it's going to last a very long time indeed.

"me" time.

After a hectic Freshers Week, I thought I'd have a little pamper night with a few treats I've bought recently.

Cath Kidston mug, Fresh Cut Roses Yankee Candle, Essie Bahama Mama nail polish, The Sacred Truth Lush face mask and September Maggie Li Glossybox.

No7 Beautiful Skin.

I ran out of cleanser this morning, so I popped straight to Boots to purchase one I've had my eye on for months. I try to only buy products once I've ran out of a similar one, as to not clog up my collection.
After reading a few rave reviews about this skin care collection, I decided I'd give it a try.

I loved the packaging, mint/sage green is one of my favourite colours, and the products look so clean and fresh. I was so excited to use them, and my expectations were fulfilled. The cleanser smells beautiful and fresh, and it really gives your skin a good clean. The moisturiser is lovely and creamy and equally nourishing. It also contains SPF15, which is great, though hardly needed in rainy England.

This is a product I will definitely be using every day.


MILLICENT Stud Back Boots

I do love a statement ankle boot; these pair are something I've been seeking for a while. The heel is just a little too low, but that just means they'll be comfortable during the day as well as night. The burgundy pair were lovely too, but they didn't have my size.
I have been in work nearly every day for the past fortnight, so I thought I'd treat myself to these bad boys!

August Favourites!

During August I favoured fresh and fruity scented products, that felt great to use during warm weather, that helped to cool me down and leave me feeling clean and revived.
My Favourite scent this Summer was Mango; I discovered a brand called nspa whilst shopping in Asda, they have a great range of bath, beauty and shower products, that all smell amazing. I loved the mango scrub this month, and I used it with another favourite brand The Body Shop's Mango Body Butter. The scrub left my skin feeling soft and the body butter helped give my skin a wonderful smelling summer glow. 
Another nspa product I used every day was the Passion fruit frangrance body mist, it smells so lovely and fresh. I took it on holiday with me, which was great because when the weather was boiling, I didn't always feel like putting a heavily scented perfume on, so this body mist really cooled me down and just added a kick of summer when I got back home.
I have always loved the Johnson's facial cleansing wipes, infact I'd say they were my No1 skincare product. During the hot weather, I don't always feel like putting lots of products on my face, so these facial wipes are perfect to remove any make up or dirt, and they're really refreshing in the morning to wake your skin up. 
I received the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara in a copy of Elle magazine earlier this year, and I have used it every day. It's such a great mascara for day and night, it doesn't clump your eye lashes, and if you wiggle the wand whilst applying the product, it really enhances your lashes.
One of my favourite departments of Liberty of London is the soap area, which is where I purchased my Dolce Vivere soap in the scent Portofino. I cannot begin to describe how amazing this soap smells. Flax, Rose Water and Marine Lily, and it smells like the most perfect English flowers on a Summer day.
Last but not least, is the OPI nail lacquer in Aphrodite's Pink Nightie, which was a birthday present from my sister. I'd say it's a very pearlescent shade of glossy pink.
