It's been a really long time since I last did a face of the day, I forgot how difficult it is for me to take a picture of myself where I don't look odd. As soon as the camera is pointed at me I seem to gain three extra chins and lose the ability to smile without looking like a crazy lady! I used to dread the morning after the night before when all the pictures would be uploaded to facebook, all my friends would be there looking stunning in every picture and then there would be me, looking like a gargoyle in the background (I'm kidding, well.. a little!) - I'll have to dig a few up to show you one day!
Bourjois might just be the brand that does my favourite foundations, thank you healthy mix (& a decent layer of concealer) for making my skin look way better than it actually is. I'm still loving the Maybelline Fit Me powder too, that stuff is seriously amazing! How it doesn't look cakey, even when I put a lot on I don't know. Actually, Maybelline are really doing well right now I think, I'm really enjoying the Sculpting Brow Mascara from this month's GlossyBox*. Even though it's not quite the right colour, if I just use a little I think I can get away with it!
my favourite coat that I bought from Matalan, my Gryffindor Scarf (house pride!) that I bought at the Harry Potter Studio Tour earlier this year and my favourite chunky knit mittens from New Look. Even though it was hidden underneath my scarf, I also wore this sweet hare necklace* that was gifted to me from Jana Reinhardt. Their pieces are seriously stunning, so simple and elegant. If something catches your eye, be sure to use the code blogger20 to get £20 off all full priced pieces - I'm not getting paid or anything to mention this, just wanted to share!
We also stopped by the Christmas shop in our favourite garden centre (yes, we have a favourite - pass us our walking sticks and slippers already!) but you know, that place is pretty magical inside during November and December. I fell in love with this beautiful light-up Victorian street scene. They have these every year and I always manage to talk myself out of buying one - I think next year I'll have to get one though and maybe pop it in our front window.
As we were driving home there was the most wonderful sunset. The sky turned a stunning burnt orange colour and there was a distinct chill in the air. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
