My Autumn Essentials

Autumn has to be my top season, I just love everything about it, the leaves falling off the trees is so pretty and I know its getting towards winter meaning christmas! So today I thought I would show you my essentials for autumn.

I love a bold lip colour in autumn and my two favourites are Rimmel Apocalips Big Bang and MUA shade 1 both of these are drugstore but the pigments are amazing, the colour of MUA is a gorgeous berry red where as the Apocalips is a bright red. I am really looking forward to getting the Matte Apocalips in a deep berry red and I think it will be my new favourite.

To go woth my bold lip I like to have my eyes standing out, the MUA 'Naked 2 dupe' Undress me too is my all time favourite for autumn the dark browns and shimmer grey variety is perfect as you can swap around what you wear, this is also great for travelling as some colours are great as eyeliner. I also love to curl my eyelashes in Autumn its a bit of a wierd one but in the summenr my mascara just comes off but in Autumn my face is dryer meaning less moisture so my mascara stays on longer so I curl my eyelashes to again make my eyes pop.

The down side to Autumn is that my hands get dry from the cold weather but Hand Food always comes to my rescue and works wonders on making my hands smooth. I would recommend hand cream as an essential for in your bag aswell and to apply it before bed. 
No one understands my love for Chanel Coco it is just perfect, the smell is strong and lasts all day and despit being quite expensive I have had this bottle for about a year as you dont need alot for a strong smell. 
Hot Chocolate is my ultimate essential, wrapped up with a blanket and a book is just the highlight of autumn, but this mug is just perf the retro aspect of it is so nice and I do live a good mug.

So there my essentials, comment below your essentials.

Thick and Voluminous Hair Routine

My hair is naturally thin, like I have a lot of hair but each strand is a lot thinner than normal. It really annoys me as I would love a bit of volume but it always limp and lifeless so since using this combination of products I have been very happy.

So first of all I wash my hair with the L'oreal Elvive Fibrology Shampoo & Conditioner which has filloxane which coats each strand making it thicker, since using this I have had more of a swish to my hair and would really recommend it. I did try the thickness booster as I received a sample but I didn't see much of a difference than if I just used the shampoo and conditioner.

If I am blowdrying my hair I use the Tresemme 24 hour body blow dry spray which just adds a bit more oomph this is just a mini size that I bought to try but I will definitely buy the bigger bottle. 

TIP: When I blowdry my hair I flip it upside down to give it a bit of extra volume if you can't perfect the salon blow drying technique 

So when it comes to styling this is where I think I have found the perfect product VO5 Plump it up Dry Backcombing spray is my holy grail for plumped up hair and have already used three cans this year, so it doesn't last very long but I have used it virtually every single day. It gives a perfect backcombing effect without 

Lastly if I need even more volume I do backcomb my hair despite people saying it is damaging I think as long as you don't do it every day it should be fine.

I hope you try out a few of these products which are available at most drugstores if you have please comment below your opinions or tell me if you have found any amazing hair products to get extra volume.

PS. please comment any ideas for blogpost I really want to know what you would like to see in the future.

REVIEW: Soap & Glory Arch de Triumph

I thought it was about time I did a review so here I am with my current make up hype.

I saw this the other week when shopping as I went to buy the Soap & Glory archery that everyone has been loving recently but when I saw this I thought lets be different and I am glad I was. This is brilliant, one end is a highlighter and the other is an eyebrow pencil it is in the colour Taupe and Buff and fits my eyebrows perfectly the pencil is just right not to hard and not to soft and the highlighter is not only brilliant for your brow bone but can also be great on the inner corner of your eye. However on a down side, I cannot find a sharpener big enough to sharpen it?!
