HAPPY HALLOWEEN­čÄâ

Hi Everyone so since tomorrow is halloween i thought i would share some things i personally like to do on this spooky autumnal day.

Pumpkin Carving

I always like to get a fresh pumpkin from the shops and create a goolish design to sit on my dresser.
BE CREATIVE! Go nuts with your creative skills and carve a spectacular pumpkin!

Trick or Treat

Everyone loves to get loads of sweets to eat at this time of year! Go all out and get a creative way to store your sweets so no one can find them #SecretStash. And remember, always tell a joke or you won't get any sweets!

Dress up

I usually go for something quite plain and simple like a good old cat or a witch. If your in the Halloween spirit you could go all the way and get creative and make your own costume! Or if your not so creative you can pick up cheap and easy costumes at places like Asda and Tesco.

Decorate

This year i haven't went to extravegant with my decor and have only opted for a few bits and bobs to spice up my room, here are a few of my decorations - 
  •  Glitter Pumpkin- Asda (£1) 

  • "BOO" Sign- John Lewis (£8)

  • Ghost Fairy Lights- Asda (£3)

  • "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" sign- Asda (£2)

I hope everyone liked this post, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN, hope everyone has a great day and be safe!

Kylie Kollection!

 
Hi guys! I hope you guys are having a lovely day. Today I thought some of you might enjoy a post steering away from our Autumn posts so I thought I would share my recent Kylie Cosmetics purchases. I know a lot of you will be fed up of hearing about Kylie Cosmetics all over social media but for those of you who are make-up junkies, here you go!
Disclaimer Alert: I am not bragging in any way, shape or form. I bought everything with my own money and I am simply sharing my opinions.
First of all I’m going to give you some background information about my order, I bought 3 single liquid lipsticks (Koko K, Candy K and Exposed) as I don’t use lip liners. I ordered directly from the Kylie cosmetics. My order came to £41.67 but I had to pay £12 delivery, I then had to pay a further £15.65 for customs which meant overall I spent £69.32 on 3 liquid lipsticks which personally, I don’t think it was worth it. My order took around 2-3 weeks to arrive. It was delivered in the Kylie box along with a cushion wrap and it came with the card that she had written a message on which was a nice personal touch from herself.
I bought Koko K, Candy K and Exposed. I have a love hate relationship with these liquid lipsticks. First I’m going to tell you about why I love them. One reason why I love them is the fact that they are really pigmented, another thing is that I don’t find them drying to my lips at all. On the other hand sometimes I find them really thick and uncomfortable, also whenever a picture is taken with a flash when you are wearing any of these colours they go much paler and go a weird colour. That is the only thing I can fault about these products but for the price I paid I am not going to stop wearing them as I don’t like wasting money and hopefully I will get used to the uncomfortable feeling and pray that no one takes a picture of me when wearing them (lol).

I will say that these are very opaque and you do not have to use a lot of product for a great matte effect. No words can explain how long lasting these are, I can apply it in the morning, go to school, do PE, have a snack and lunch along with a drink, I then come home and have my dinner and it still looks like I have just applied it. So from 8am to around 8pm that is a superpower.
Now I’m just going to share some photos of the packaging and swatches.

Autumn Treats❤️

Hi everyone, so today i thought i would share with you my top 5  favourite autumn treats that i have been loving at the moment!

1. Marshmallows
Any marshmallows in general are such a cosy way of relaxing and having a nice treat at this time of year.

2. Terry's Chocolate Orange
I feel this is a classic that everyone knows and loves, i think the name speaks for its self.

3. Dairy Milk Oreo bar
Honestly if you haven't tried this you so have to! it is the best chocolate bar I've ever tasted!

4. Malteaser Hot Chocolate
This is my ultimate favourite hot drink, it is so tasty and it tastes exactly like malteasers.

5. Kitkat Orange
This for me is the icing on the cake! They are such a cosy comfort snack that also tastes delicious.

Autumn Home Wishlist!

Hi guys! Today I'm going to share my Autumn home wishlist with you. These are just some homey cosy touches that you can add to your home to make it more comfortable.


Cosy Blankets

Why would you not have cosy blankets lying on all your couches and beds. When it's cold out and you have popcorn, hot chocolate and a movie the last element you need to make that the perfect day is a cosy blanket. I love blankets, you can also get them really cheap from shops like Primark but you can also get more expensive ones from shops like next and Debenhams.

Fluffy Pillows

Again why would you not. So cosy. So fluffy. So autumnal. So fetch (lol)

Candles

Candles are ones of my most favourite things about the cosy side of the year. You can get the most incredible scented candles ever. My favourite scents are cinnamon, ginger, any warm spices, gingerbread, baby powder.

Seasonal Flowers

It is really lovely to have a bouquet of flowers sitting in your living room or dining room. There are some really nice flowers for this season like sunflowers, carnations and camellia's. Most people associate flowers with Spring and Summer but you gotta love them Pastel Petals in the Autumn time (pardon the pun).

Carved Pumpkin

This decoration is more Halloween based but it is a nice DIY to do with family and friends and is affordable. You can buy pumpkins from supermarkets starting from 50p. I had actually never carved a pumpkin until last year but I loved it. You can use cookie cutters or just a knife to cut shapes out but either way, stick on some tunes and get your hands dirty.

Fairy Lights

These add a great glow to a room and creates a really calm environment. You could hang them above your bed or lay them on top of your mantelpiece. Wherever you put them they will look gorgeous and put you in a feel good mood.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Leave a comment telling us your Autumn home wishlist.
