Autumn Wishing | Blogtober #2

I go back and forth over which season is my very favourite, let's just say decision making isn't my biggest strength, but the beginning of Autumn is certainly up there with my favourite times of the year. I haven't invested in any autumn or winter appropriate pieces yet and thankfully I don't really need too many things, but I do have a small wishlist...

In line with my apparent inability to find a practical jacket/coat I really like, I'm currently lusting over this Joules Blazer. Do I need a blazer? Not really. Do I have anything to wear it with? Nope. But there's something about the blue tartan that gets me every time. Undoubtedly this will be a piece I just look at every so often and never purchase, but sometimes window shopping is equally as satisfying as owning something.

It wouldn't be an autumn wishlist without a pair of Hunters now, would it? With no rainy day appropriate footwear after somehow managing to make a hole in my last pair of cheapy wellies, it's time to finally invest in a good quality pair. I'm thinking black. It's not possible to go too far wrong there, right?

Moving towards an entirely cruelty free beauty routine has been pleasantly simple so far, and I'm hoping that will continue as I look for a new liquid foundation. The Lily Lolo BB Cream is perfect for me most days, but sometimes I find myself wanting just a little more coverage. I do have a tube of the NARS Tinted Moisturiser, but I'm still a little unsure where I stand with cruelty free companies who have a parent company that sadly isn't. As such I'm in the market for something different and as I've been researching I've read a lot of good things about the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. The shade range looks really promising and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to find a match for my skin. 

It's not like I'm in desperate need of a new blush or anything, but the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love is calling my name. The Polly Pocket-esque packaging reminds me of my childhood and it's adorable, but it's this particular shade that I'm finding myself drawn to. Not too pink. Not too peach. Not too bright. I'm still in my neutral make up phase, so it looks pretty perfect.

Is there anything on your autumn wishlist at the moment?

  5. I've keep looking at all the two faced makeup before deciding its probably too expensive and I shouldd just get cheaper alternatives. But it's getting to the stage where I think I might just buy it. Yay! I always need a good coat and a decent pair of boots. For some reason, I can never find either that I just fall in love with. Hmm. I'm also after the Vegan Dr Martens and a pair of custom converse. So let's just see shall we? haha.

  6. Everything for A/W from Primark basically :'D


  7. That blusher though! So beautiful and definitely reminds me of Polly Pocket too haha xx

  11. I recently got a sample trio of the born this way foundation, and I'm hoping that one of them is my shade cause I'm really hoping I'll like it haha. I want to try one of the Too Faced Love Flush blushes as well, the one called "I will always love you." But I definitely don't need any more blushes, haha!
