September Favourites 2016!

Hey everyone, today I am going to be sharing with you what I've been loving through out the month of Autumn! This month seems to have gone so fast! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post, and I will see you all very, very soon. xx


Then first thing I have been loving is Tanya Burr's Hollywood eyeshadow palette. I re-discovered this palette this month and I can't remember why I stopped using it! It's a four shade palette with a highlight shade - Nude Delight, a pale gold colour - Gold Coin, a glittery bronze - Enchantment and a matte (ish) deep brown - Bookworm. When I use this palette, I use gold coin all over my lid, Enchantment on the outer half, bookworm in the crease and Nude delight in the inner corner. This palette is also super, super affordable, as it retails at only £5.99.

The next thing I've been loving this month is MAC's Lustre lipstick in Plumful. This is a gorgeous deep pink/berry shade that is gorgeous for transitioning in Autumn and Winter. MAC lipsticks are pretty pricey, but they are such good quality for the price you pay. All of the lipsticks are £15.50 each. There is also a really wide colour range that has lipsticks for every skin tone.

A bath bomb that I have loved this month was the LUSH twilight bath bomb. This is a pale lavender/lilac which has bright blue on the inside. It makes the water and really pretty dusky purple. This has lavender in it which I'm not a huge fan of, but it's not a really obvious scent. This is one of the slightly cheaper bath bombs, as it is £3.75.


Through out September I have been loving reading and I have been reading the Shopaholic book series by Sophie Kinsella. It's honestly so good! Right now, i'm on book 6 which is called Mini Shopaholic. It follows the life of a shopaholic and financial journalist Becky Bloomwood. It is one of those books, that makes you actually laugh!

So, I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will see you all very, very soon.

Love Lou

My Autumnal Morning Routine 2016!

Hey everyone, and welcome to another autumn themed post. Today I am going to be sharing with you my regular morning during Autumn. I hope you enjoy this post and I will see you all very, very soon.

I normally wake up at about 8:30 but I can be early, or later depending on what I'm doing that day. Usually I sit in bed for a bit and watch tv or check instagram. After that, I have to get up and brush my teeth before I do anything else otherwise I don't concentrate properly (or do anything properly).

After that, I head down stairs and pop a bagel in the toaster. A lot of people think it's really strange that I don't put anything on my bagel! I just eat it as it comes and it's so nice! With my bagel I always have apple juice and a yogurt. (This breakfast probably sounds like a really odd combination but oh well.).

After that, I head back upstairs and start getting ready. First I do my make up, then my hair and last I get changed.

My regular make up:
First, I prime my eyes using Smashbox 24hr eye primer.  I then use the shade Sin from Nyx all over my lid. Then I add a bit of the shade Over the Taupe on the other corner of my eye and then blend it up into the crease.
To finish of my eyes, I blend the shade Creep from the original Naked palette across my lash line and add Smashbox Full Exposure to my top and bottom lashes. Then I use my 17 Stay Time concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes. Usually, I choose the lipstick on the morning but recently I've been loving MAC's plumful.

Next, I do my hair. This generally consists of ponytails, braids or bobby pins. After that, I get changed. Through Autumn so far, I've been loving dungarees and striped t shirts. I'm not really sure why, but I just love it!

Before I head out, I usually have a little tidy up (that's if I have time though - I generally don't though). Then I grab my mini backpack from New Look, drop my phone in and head out...

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will see you all very, very soon,

Love Lou

My Make up Drawers Tour! Pt. 1

Hey everyone, and welcome to my make up drawers tour! I don't really know why I've never done one of these before! Anyway, lets get into it... xx

I keep all my make up in, or on top of my dressing table. I have the HERMES Dressing Table from IKEA. It has 1 main drawer that is broken up into 3 sections. Then on top of dressing table I have a small make up organiser which I keep all the things I use the most in. I got this from Tiger just over  a year ago so I don't know whether it is still sold or not - although, many places do very similar products.

On top of my dressing table I keep:

NYX Create your own palette (with the shades: Naked Truth, Sin, Velvet and Over the Taupe)
Maybelline 24 hour Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze
Smashbox Full Exposure mascara in the shade Blackest Black
17 Stay Time Concealer in the shade Extra Fair
LUSH Popcorn Lip Scrub
EcoTools Lip Brush
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul
NYX Buttergloss in Angel Food Cake
Kiko Deco Delight Lipstick in 02
Kiko Velvet Mat Lipstick in 613
MAC Lustre Lipstick in Plumful
P.S. Pro... Beauty Blender

The main drawer of my dressing table is broken up into 3 compartments. On the left, I keep a few face products. In the middle section I keep all my eye products and last but not least, my lip products are on the right!

In the left section there is:

Smashbox Under Eye Primer
Soap and Glory Blur and Brighten Concealer in Light
Maybelline Baby Lips (to set my eyebrows)
Natural Collection Lipstick in Sweet Pea (I don't use this one, so it's just somewhere to store it...)

So, that's all for today. Part 2 will be up next week. I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will see you all very, very soon.
