A Few Festieve Things

3 Dec

Hello, as with every season I like to round up some things I’m excited to use. Today I am sharing a few festive items.

Body cream- I have heard literally every other beauty blogger recommend this cream. I was sick of hearing about how great it was and how delicious it smells. I finally bought the bullet and got a travel size tub. I love it! This cream truly delivers moisture which is essential for when it is cooler and dryer. And yes, it does smell really good!

Body mist- A Thousand Wishes is a popular recurring holiday fragrance from BBW. It smells like sparkles and champagne and a shimmery gold lame dress! 

Candle I couldn’t talk about my favourite things without including a candle. This is a repeat purchase: Marshmallow Fireside from White Barn/BBW. This one has a woodsy yet sweet smell. 

Body wash- Snow Angel by Philosophy,  one of my favourite bath and body companies has a crisp slighlty warm sugary smell. I got this in a mini size because I only plan on using it during the festive season. Philosophy products always have a strong yet not overpowering scent and they give a good lather leaving your skin clean and moisturiser.

Eyeshadow palette- This palette, Prism by Anastasia Beverley Hills is their holiday edition. I love the glittery jewel and metallic tones but I am also super intrigued by the bright matter. ABH ‘s formula is generally very pigmented and smooth and this palette is no different. I think it’s awesome for the holiday season but definitely great year round.

Tea- Over the past year I have become very fond of tea. My preference is a fruit or even floral tea but this Chai spice tea is flavourful, spicy and very festive. It’s great warm with some milk but I actually like my tea (and coffe) cold and sans milk.
Those are a few of my favourite festive things. Thanks for reading and have an awesome day!

A Few Autumnal Things

8 Oct

Happy Autumn! Whether you spend this time of year raking up fallen leaves and dressing warmly or you just enjoy the trendy aspects like PSLs and BBW candles.

I fall into the latter category (although I’m not a huge PSL fan) and today I’m sharing a few things that I will be using this autumn.

Bag

This year, I have become quite enamored with mini structured bags. This one, in a russet/chestnut shade by GUESS makes going about hands free easy and autumnal.

Makeup

Eyeshadow Palette 

Naked Heat by Urban Decay- If this isn’t autumn in an eyeshadow palette I don’t know what is. There is a great mixture of browns, coppers and reds that allow for a variety of warm eye looks as the weather cools down.

Just Peachy Matte by Too Faced– If this isn’t autumn in an eyeshadow palette I don’t… wait I said that already… but ditto! This palette is a fantastic mix of all the matte warm shadows you could need. There are peachy and deep red shades that compliment all skin tones.
Highlighter

Trippin Stick Highlighter by Fenty Beauty– Got that Fenty Beauty booty! This highlight stick gives an orange hued golden effect on my deep skin. I particularly like using it on my nose. It gives me Autum-glam vibes.
Lipstick

Matte Tease by Milan- Autumn lips are all about the plums and wines. This is a deep burnt brownish plum shade that adds the perfect touch to any makeup look.

Body Scents 

Perfume

Black Opium by YSL/Saint Laurent- I love this fragrance. It’s deep with some musk and a touch of sweetness. Fantastic for cooler weather. I initially tried this scent in a mini and loved it so much that it made it’s way onto this year’s birthday wishlist. Thank you to my beautiful friend Tanya for fulfilling that wish.

Body Mist


Warm Vanilla Sugar by BBW-
This year I’ve gotten back into layering fragrances. It creates a unique scent (in a good way) and if your overlying scent wears off you still smell great. This summer I used a Coconut body mist as my base scent but now I’m ready for this warm sweet vanilla scent that goes beautifully with this time of year.


Home Scents


Bourbon Butterscotch candle from White Barn/BBW-
This candle smells just like you would imagine, a little sweet, a bit dark and very warm. Perfect!


Pomegranate Noir travel candle by Jo Malone-
This is my very first Jo Malone candle (or anything for that matter) I have been lusting after these products for actual year’s and I finally bit the bullet. I opted for a travel candle which is really a mini so it was cheaper and I can see if this brand is for me. The fragrance is a deep fruity mixed with woodsy one. It’s great for cooler months especially but I think I would love it year round.


Book

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake- Last but by no means least is my autumnal reading. I actually began this book a few weeks ago but only got a few chapters in, not because the book isn’t awesome, just because I’m not awesome. Anyhow this story takes place in what seems to be someplace in Europe around the middle ages and involves three sisters separated at birth all vying for the same crown in a rather unique way. The setting is dark and chilly with lots of woods and feasts. A perfect autumnal read.

Thanks for reading and have an awesome autumn!
