Six Autumn Favourites

Hi! Today I thought I'd just write a quick tag post that I was tagged in by Khadija from ForeverGlamx - it was a while ago but I've finally got round to it! It involves six of my favourite things which have to come under the headings:
Favourite Nail Polish
Favourite Blush
Favourite Skincare Product
Favourite Item of Clothing
Favourite Item of Jewellery
Favourite Perfume

I've slightly changed some of the headings from Khadija's version because I don't wear lipstick or eyeshadow very often, so I hope that's okay!



My favourite nail varnish this Autumn is Big Smoke by Topshop - it's a gorgeous grey/brown colour which has slightly purple tones in some lights - really easy to wear and because it's Topshop, it lasts forever!
My favourite blush is (and always has been) Head over Heels, again by Topshop. It's a corally pink colour - but what I love most is the consistency of this cream blush. I use a stippling brush to blend it in and it just looks gorgeous!
My favourite skincare product has to be the Origins Super Spot Remover that I discovered a month or so ago - you can read a full review of it here

I absolutely love this bracelet from Delilah Dust - read my full post here


My favourite haircare product is definitely the Toni&Guy sea salt texturising spray - it's sprayed onto damp or dry hair to create instant texture and beachy hair - great for giving your hair a bit more pizazz! (I can't believe I've just used that word in a blog post..) Read my post on it here.
I bought the Love gorilla perfume from Lush in summer and loved it, but after a few weeks it got lost somewhere in the chasms of one of my handbags - until I rediscovered it last week! It has a lovely flirty fragrance with a bit of a musky twist - so I actually much prefer it for autumn. This perfumes last ages on your skin too, which is always lovely!


I got this coat from Fatface a month or so ago, and I'm totally in love - I've loved the parka trend ever since I first saw it, but I also wanted something a bit thicker to actually keep me warm. I saw this coat on another blog and adored it - and for £88 (around £98 without an NUS card), I was sold! I love the fur hood, as well as the Barbour jacket style lining. It's unbelievably snug, and looks great!

Thanks Khadija for tagging me!
