My Autumn Essentials

The reason why I love Autumn is simple. Tis the most cozy time of the year. Winter is almost 'too' cold, the nights and mornings are pitch black, but Autumn is just the right 'in between'. So I thought I'd do a little rundown of my autumn essentials.

Baths - Finally it's the season to come home after a long chilly day and draw yourself a warm bath. Not only is the heating most likely on so the towels are nice and warmed up, but you can't deny a warm bath with all the Lush products is exactly what you need. This time of year is when I head to Lush and pick up some of my favourite Autumn bits, you can read my latest haul here. My favourite has to be Lush Sparkly Pumpkin because how can you not love a glittery pumpkin bath bomb!?

Autumn Makeup - You can't deny that in the Autumn you can be a little bit more adventurous with your makeup. I begin to start wearing darker lip colours and  Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry and Bond Girl along with Colourpop Lippie Stix 'Creature'. I never wear bold bright pinks in the Summer, but give me a dark red or purple and I'll wear it regardless. Essie's Angora Cardi and Carry On are my perfect for this time of the year. 

A Good Books - I've always been quite a book worm but I really enjoy cozying up in bed for half an hour with a good book. It not only makes me get to sleep faster, but there is a lot of satisfaction when you find a good book. I love a page-turner like 'The One' by John Marrs but am a sucker for a good chick-lit like Lindsey Kelk's ' I Heart' series. I just finished her newest book 'I Heart Forever' and they are such feel-good books. 

Embracing the Festivities - Whether you're dressing up for a night out, or planning your own Halloween night-in movie marathon with your friends, you can't deny embracing Halloween. Although sadly I'm not doing any dressing up or going out-out, I've spent the weekend at the Warner Brothers Harry Potter studios (decked out in pumpkins and halloween decor) and my flatmate and I have ensured that our flat still has some sort of halloween vibes to it (shout out to Emily's calligraphy and spray painting skills on the pumpkins). Tiger, Poundland and Next home have some amazing halloween finds! 

Let me know in the comments below what your Autumn essentials are!
