Autumn/Winter Favourites

1. Cups of Tea and Relaxing

I'm not sure about anyone else, but as it starts to get colder, I want to be out in the cold air more as I am such a lover of colder weather, but nothing beats being inside and keeping warm. This time of year is when you can spend more time inside, spending time with the people you love and having some well deserved relaxation time. Nothing beats a cup of tea any time of year, however there is something comforting about it being cold outside and you being nice and warm inside. Also, this is the time of year is the joyous time where all of the festive drinks come out so its happy time for me, can't resist a festive drink...

2. Cosy Jumpers and Autumn Style

If you've been a follower of my Instagram or my blog, you will know I have an undeniable love for a good cosy jumper, especially if its a turtle neck (they are the true way to my heart I can tell you). There is nothing better than being cosy when its cold outside, its perfect for me as I love the cold weather so much, being able to be outside and experience my favourite aspects of Autumn and Winter and not be freezing cold is heaven. 
I really love the styles you can bring out more in Autumn, these being good old tartan mainly for me, whether this is a flannel shirt, skirt or simply a scarf, tartan is most definitely one of my favourite seasonal trends, alongside the deep red tones. 

3. Autumnal Make-Up

Autumn make up looks are my idea of absolute heaven. I wear winged eyeliner almost everyday as staple, but being able to wear my absolute favourite combination of winged liner and burgundy lips without it looking out of place or over the top is true bliss. My go to super Autumnal make up look has got to be my classic winged eyeliner, with a copper/gold shadow (my absolutely favourite at the moment is this Tom Ford cream eyeshadow in the shade 'Spice') and a burgundy or classic red lipstick. 
The palette above is my go to travel palette at the moment, it is the 'In The Balm of Your Hand' palette, its got some gorgeous shadows from some of my favourite The Balm palettes combined with some gorgeous bronzing, blusher and highlighting shades. Take a look here if you want to have a look at it yourself. 
I am hoping to sort an Autumnal make up look either on my blog or youtube very soon, alongside a products I would or wouldn't repurchase, so keep your eyes peeled!

4. Woody Scents

I have a thing for liking to match my perfume to the time of year it is, it is not something I enforce upon myself, however I do so if I come across a really gorgeous scent I want to wear during a certain time of year. I have to say I am the type of girl who has lots of different types of perfumes, I have never been a one scent girl so I like trying out different ones in order to try and find the one for me! In summer I was wearing Peony and Blush Suede by Jo Malone, and I really loved how long the scent lasted on my skin and my clothes, which somewhat justifies the price as they are on the more pricy side for how much product you get for your money. I went to Jo Malone recently and fell in love with '154' now granted, this is definitely the least imaginative of the Jo Malone names, however it embodies different notes form all of the Jo Malone scents, and this definitely explains why I loved this one as I was finding it so hard to choose my favourite one before this. 
I really recommend Jo Malone for a special gift for perhaps a mother or sister, something a little more indulgent if thats what you're after. 

I really enjoyed this post, its something a little different and allows me to do a little more writing. I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you'd like to see some more favourites whether they were beauty or anything else. 
I hope you're all very well!
