What's On My Face and Nails - Autumn Edition.

It´s time to put away those dewy foundations, say goodbye to the lipglosses (I refuse to be the person that keeps using theirs and then complains every time their hair gets stuck in it thanks to that lovely Autumnal wind), reach for a more hydrating moisturiser and lip balm (#CrackedLips) and pack away the bronzer: Autumn has arrived. For someone who has spent the past year chasing Summer, I'm a little bit sad about this, but oh so happy to finally be digging out my trusty NARS Cruella lip pencil - SO DREAMY.

Skincare Staples & Suggestions.

If I want something, then I obviously need it... I don't think I'll be purposefully following any trends this season, but I do feel like I'll be stocking up on metallics, chokers, mid length skirts and, of course, even more shirts. I've even put together a few images of looks I'll be looking to recreate, because I am very prepared (...and original).

Orange Nails and Pumpkins.

If you're not excited about layering, switching up your make-up and Halloween, then you are lying to yourself and everyone around you. Yes, by this time next week I'll probably be sick of the cold and the wind but, for now, I'm going to make the post of it and take as many photos of the leaves as they slowly change colour as I can. Something I've been enjoying during Autumn is wearing nail polishes that I might wear during other seasons, such as...
