Autumn On A Sunday

This time of year are my absolute faaaaaave. Layering up with new winter coats, feeling festive with Halloween and Christmas right around the corner and the fresh crisp mornings and starry nights. However nothing makes me happier at this time of year than muddy forest walks on a Sunday. It's my definition of Autumn. Feeding the ducks by the pond, seeing the different shades of yellow, orange and red leaves and snapping photos of the landscape. Now I've done one of my favourite Autumn things I decided to start making a list of all the other stuff I want to do before it gets to rainy, dark and cold!
 Go Pumpkin Picking
 Do all the Halloween Baking (with all the Pumpkin and Chocolate Orange)
• Actually start my Christmas shopping !!
 Explore even more forests and remember to take my camera
 Find an amazing farmers market and buy all the fruit & veg
 Have a Christmas movie night with Hot Chocolate & Popcorn
 Watch a huuuuge fireworks display
 Make the most of the weekends
 Be braver with my winter wardrobe
• Read more books and listen to more podcasts

The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette

After loving Jaclyn's Highlighter collaboration with Becca I knew I had to get my hands on her new eyeshadow palette with Morphe and after waiting for what feels like fore v e r, BeautyBay finally released it so I snapped one up before it sold out. I'm SO glad I did because look at it !!
It's the perfect 'all year round' palette with golds, browns, oranges, burgundy's and bright blues and greens which Jaclyn all chose herself. There's also a mix of matte and shimmer making it also perfect for day and night time looks. The pigmentation is great, all the shadows are very buildable but also very blendable and easy to work with. However, I do still use a primer with them to make sure they stay on all day.
This palette cost £37 but for 35 highly pigmented eye shadows you can't really go wrong, it's a bit of a bargain and if you're looking for a new eyeshadow palette I really do recommend this one !!

Rhodes 2017 Holiday Snaps

We all have those places where we can 100% switch off and for me, it's Rhodes. I've been with my family 3 times now and its one of my absolute favourite places. This holiday we ventured out of the hotel a bit more and saw much more of the island than we normally would and if it's even possible I've fallen in love with it even more !!

We hired a car for two days and decided to visit parts of the island that we had never been to before. We visited Rhodes Old Town for a day which was just beautiful. It honestly feels like you've stepped back in time as you walk through old cobble streets to get to the centre and even then every nook and cranny you walk down is just filled with little shops and markets.

We then travelled south another day and stopped off at Monolithos Castle. Me and my dad decided to walk up it and it was so high but the views definitely made it worth it.
After that we kept driving to Prasonisi which is a beach where the Aegean and Mediterranean seas meet and it was by far my favourite part of the holiday. It was just amazing to see something like that in person.
