The weather in October has been pretty good recently with plenty of sunshine, and at times surprisingly warm! But I couldn't help but get all excited to reach for some bits and pieces, beauty and non beauty related to get me in the mood for the new season.
First of all fragrance. I've been spritzing a new combo recently, Jo Malone's Blackberry and Bay and Pomegranate Noir. Over the years I've had a love hate relationship with Pomegranate Noir. At times I find it a bit over powering and masculine, but mixed with Blackberry and Bay it's the perfect balance between something a bit heavier for the colder months but with a punch of freshness. Will definitely be hinting for the full size version of the Pomegranate for Christmas.
For make up, an oldie but I can't help myself! I always come back to Revlon's Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie every year. Moving from the pinks and corals of summer to the darker berry. plumier tones for Autumn/ Winter, it's the perfect shade if you're not brave enough to venture into full on vampy dark lip colours.
One of my clothing favourites is just practical and comfy. New Balance's 410's in Burgundy. You can dress them up with leather leggings and a chunky knit or dress down with a sweatshirt. As they're suede effect on the front they can look worn quickly, but super light to wear and go with almost everything!
Although it has been supringly warm for October, especially at the beginning of the month, I couldn't help but get some wear out of my Dorothy Perkins tan faux fur waterfall gilet. It's so warm and soft, and great to layer over a thinner base. Paired perfectly with blue ripped jeans, it's just what I need when not wanting to take a coat out and about.
