Those Autumnal Vibes

 My favourite season is upon us, that cold crisp air, feel snug in a sweater time. I don't know why but Autumn has always been my favourite time of year, most people I know prefer summer, but I hate being too hot. It's so much easier to wrap up and get warm than it is to cool down. Halloween is one of the best holidays and a good excuse to watch scary movies.

Sunday Summary #12

This week has been pretty good, I had 4 days off work and was quite productive, which I'm proud of. Although one day was relaxing watching walking dead all day. It was Scott's (my boyfriend) birthday on Friday so I got balloons and made it special, took him for dinner and a movie. We saw the last witch hunter, it was really good, but its a Vin Diesel movie so it's bound to be good. I'd highly recommend going to see it.

I'm feeling very seasonal lately, Autumn is my favourite time of year, hot chocolate, crispy leaves, snuggly jumpers, cold weather. Not to mention I love halloween, I'm not a fan of paranormal films but gore doesn't bother me so I love films like Saw and The Purge. Paranormal activity on the other hand, can do one.

Despite the picture of the burger, I have been really healthy this week, we had a burger as a treat for his birthday, it was totally worth it as a cheat meal. Pulled pork and aberdeen angus burgers, yum yum.

How has your week been?

4 Things You Need To Do For An Easier Christmas*

It may only be October, but you can be sure that plenty of people are already getting into the Christmas spirit. And why wouldn't they be? The biggest day of the year takes an awful lot of planning - and it's not just buying presents you need to worry about. How are you going to plan your attack on the Christmas dinner? Will you remember not to miss anyone off your Christmas card list? And which ugly sweater are you going to adorn yourself proudly in this year?

Should You Get Semi Permanent Makeup?*

A few months ago, semi permanent makeup was tipped to be the next big thing in the beauty industry. When I first heard about it, however, I couldn’t make up my mind as to whether I would be willing to have it done. (I’m not the biggest fan of needles - especially being injected into my face.)

The main issue for me was the fact that I love experimenting with different looks and wouldn’t want it to affect my ability to do that. I have since found out that it wouldn’t affect this, as you can choose exactly how much makeup you want to be tattooed. You can opt for a simple look or something more elaborate, it’s completely, up to you.

#SundaySummary #11

This week has been really relaxed and something I've really needed. Moving house stressed me out so much and started up my anxiety attacks again. They have started to settle and I'm feeling more at home now. I have 2 more boxes to sort out and then I'm finished! Woo. Moving house has been so much work but so worth it, living with my boyfriend is so nice and I feel like I have freedom and independance.

I've had the week off work so I managed to get a lot of house stuff done and started some prep for my online store to launch in the next month or two. I've been doing some designs for pocket mirror and will venture onto phone cases eventually. I've also been doing some jewellery. I made jewellery before on an online shop I had, which I loved doing.

So, I felt like I wanted to start it up again. It will be called deebee. You can find the pages on instagram and twitter under @shopdeebee and on facebook at Go and have a like and give it some love.

I'm so glad I'm starting to feel better now and getting back into blogging. I missed it loads and have already done 5 posts this week, on a roll! Like a sushi roll, but less tasty.

How has your week been?

Autumnal make up look

Autumn is finally here, I couldn't be happier. It is my favourite time of the year. Crunchy leaves, cold mornings, hot chocolate, halloween, jumpers, scarves, boots, christmas presents and basically everything else related to this lovely season.

The other thing I love about Autumn is those beautiful berry tone lipsticks. I've really been loving Kate by Rimmel London, No 30. 

My base is concealer applied with the real techniques sponge and some super stay 24 face powder. I've gone off having foundation at the moment, it's really improving my skin and stopping breakouts. Also one less thing to buy so saving some pennies. I find I still have amazing coverage is it last pretty much all day. Possibly a touch up needed but just chuck that powder in your bag.  

I've been using the Rimmel brow this way and blush in Pink Rose. The pink rose is a perfect colour for autumn and also slightly contours the cheeks. Keeps you looking fresh faced.

On the eyes I've gone for a simply smokey look with MAC's Sable eyeshadow for the base and Embark to contour. Again Rimmel, I love that brand for the eyeliner, scandaleyes. So easy to apply, just like using a felt tip. My recent mascara purchase was from Maybelline, the waterproof Sensational. It is amazing, makes my lashes super long, even without a curler. So in love with this and would 100% recommend you having a go.

What is your favourite product in Autumn?

It's been a while

Bonjour, I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. Things have been very fast paced and transitional in my life. I've moved home, started to settle into a new job type and on the downside, started suffering from anxiety and panic attacks. Moving house is probably one of the most stressful times in a person's life, but I thought it would be fine and easy. How naive. It was a bit of a shock when I realised how much needed to be done and how much time it took to sort through everything.

The feeling when one room is completely done is so satisfying, you just want to lay on the floor and stay in there. Ignoring the piles of boxes in other rooms like a cardboard new york city. For me, the bathroom was done first, so what did I do. Have a lush bath and not move for a long, long time.

I've really missed blogging and I'm really excited to get back into it. I can focus a lot more energy and attention on my blogs and photography. As soon as my flat is all done up I will do a flat tour in pictures on here. Moving out from your parents is a real eye opener on how much it takes to run your own home. Little things like making sure you have toilet roll and you have enough storage are things you didn't really think about.

I'm also working on an exciting project which I will tell you all most likely beginning of next year, maybe a little earlier. Depends how hard I work my little butt off. I hope you are all okay, please let me know how you've been and what you've been up to! All my love
