Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year. Which I like to mention quite a lot. I'd been curious about Leather jackets for a few years now, but didn't feel quite confident enough to get one, I worried that I might have looked a bit 'try hard' but I just thought 'sod it' if people don't think it doesn't suit me, it doesn't really matter, because I like it. And when I saw the reasonable price F21 were selling them for, I thought I might aswell! (Mine was less than £25) I love that it's a bit cropped, I think if it was any longer, it would look a bit awkward, especially on my body shape.
Literally as soon as we received this scarf in Accessorize I knew I was getting it. Tartan has been a big part in fashion for a while now, and again, it was something I had been putting off, I've also had my eye on this scarf, just waiting til pay day!
Sorry about how gross my boots look in this last picture, but you know, boots are made for wearing outside, and fields aren't clean. These are extremely comfy, a lot of people assume that because they're chunky that they wouldn't be easy to walk in, but they are an absolute dream! And I just think they're beautiful!

Sorry, I don't think stores actually sell this nail polish anymore (my bad) but I've been really into this colour recently, I don't even think I bought it, I'm sure I received it in a goody bag one year at Clothes Show Live. But it's a nice shade, it's an all rounder one I think, not too dark for Spring/Summer but not too bright for Autumn/Winter, just a nice muted shade.
I just absolutely love Rimmel lipsticks, I always find myself reaching for a Rimmel lipstick all year round. This one is a bit more darker in real life, but why I like it, is because it's not as dramatic and dark as most of my Autumny shades, it's quite subtle, but still has that bit of Autumn about it.
These are my Autumn Essentials this year, what are yours?

Feel Me

Skirt - Newlook
Shoes - Primark
Cat face necklace - Snoopers Paradise

Blah blah, I work too much and use it as an excuse not to blog. I'm pretty bummed that I can't be out in the Autumn weather getting things done that I'd like to do. Whenever I am off, my boyfriend is at uni, so taking pictures atm is a real problem, so sorry about that, but i'll figure something out.

Ramble over, I love wearing all black. It's flattering and I think quite chic. In a way wearing all black can be tricky, because you don't want to look like a blob of black, but I find it's best to wear different textures if you were to wear all black! Can we all appreciate how adorable this little cat necklace is please? My boyfriend got it for me as a anniversary present, and he did very well. In love.

This is basically an Autumn look.

I'm normally so boring with my eyes, i'll just use a neutral colour and whack on some eyeliner and mascara and that'll be it, but I've been getting inspired by all the Autumn theemed videos and posts that I thought i'd try something different with my eyes, and I actually really like it!
It's nothing crazy like an intense smoky eye, because I would look like I'd been attacked.. Just a little bit of colour on the lids with some blending action. And the lips is just perfecto, love getting to wear these shades again!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation
Rimmel Wake me up Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
MUA Bronze Shimmer Kiss
Bourjois Blush in 34 Rose D'or

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and on bronze
MUA Undressed Palette, Shade 2 for the base, Shade 4 all over & Shade 10 in the corner.
Miss Sporty Waterproof Eye liner for anyone struggling with getting eye liner right, I recommend watching this video.
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara

MUA Matte Eyeshadow in Chestnut
Maybelline Brow Tint Mascara

Revlon Balm Stain in 005 Crush, I used this as as liner.
Rimmel Starry Eyed lipstick.

That's it really, super easy.

Lost Causes

Jeans - Monsoon
Bag - Accessorize
Green/grey stone Necklace - Accessorize
Blue stone Necklace - Crystal Shop
Shoes - Primark

Obviously, these were taken in Brighton, and having to edit them earlier made me super sad, really wish I didn't have to come home! I got this top the day I got paid, I'd been wanting it for months, and because I did a lot of over time, I thought I'd treat myself! It was £40 (eeek.) which I don't think I've ever spent on a top... But it's so beautiful, and it always broke my heart to walk away from it. These jeans were my work jeans, but I decided to rip holes in the knees, because i'm so edgy. (jokes.)

Top - Newlook

Shoes - Schuh
Bag - Primark
Sunnies - Accessorize
Lips - Maybelline, Midnight Plum
Bow - Vintage market

Super sorry about the over exposed or dark photos, the sun was having one of those days when it couldn't decide if it wanted to stay out, or hide behind clouds. I love these shoes, they're awesome, they were a pain to break in (dead feet.) but now they're comfy I wear as much as I can, cause they're interesting to look at, and I think they honestly go with any outfit, so i'm happy I didn't give up on them. And the top jumpery thing is just super comfy, I literally just live in these sort of things atm.

Fire Ombre.

 photo DSC_0393_small_zps99eea2fe.jpg  photo DSC_0398_small_zps8be7f30e.jpg I'd been going backwards and forwards for months over the idea of going red. It's something that I'd always gone back to back in the day, but for the past few years I've stuck to my natural brown, because it took soo long to get it back to normal without a red tinge. But it was something I kept thinking about and the only thing that was putting me off was just getting it back to brown when I get bored of it. But I figured if I'm going to think about it as much as I was, I may as well just do it, and deal with the dilemma when it comes!
But I love it, I didn't realise how much I missed having red hair! I used the Live color XXL in Radiant Red. And for me to keep my ombre and blend it in, I just back combed it when it came to applying it near the blonde, easy peasy. Do you like?

Bag - Accessorize
Lipstick - Rimmel Starry eyed
Nails - Seventeen Spiced Plum

You have no idea how excited I was to throw on an outfit like this, it's been too hot for the past couple of months to get away with this sort of outfit, but as it's started to cool off a bit, i've been sneaking the odd bit of jumpers and darker colours back out again. I did stick out like a soar thumb, because everyone else is still in there summer get up, but I'm not bothered. It's so funny how I feel more like myself just from changing how I'm dressing. I was honestly smiling so much the other day because I could wear a jumper, skirt and black tights, the little things I guess..
