Autumn Tag 2013!

I'm here once again with another post and I thought what better way to start the new season of Autumn, with a tag. I'm really excited about Autumn and Winter that's coming in soon as well. Personally these coming months are my favourite because it means Halloween, Bon Fire Night, MY BIRTHDAY and Christmas! so much to look forward to and I always find really cute outfits to put together, layering is the best! So without further of do I am going to get into the Tag.
1. Favourite thing about it?
Basically what I mentioned above!
2. Favourite drink?
My favourite drink is probably anything to do with caffeine, if I'm being completely honest Hot Chocolate would probably be my last resort. I also really enjoy going to Costa and trying out the new drinks that they bring out for the particular season.
3. Favourite scent/ candle?
I absolutely love burning amazing smelling candles in my room, two of my all time favourite scented candles are Liquorice by the Jelly Belly brand and sweet vanilla by Price's, I'm still on the hunt for Pumpkin scented one though that seems to be a common favourite.
4. Best lipstick?
I have really been liking a nude from Seventeen in the shade "Bon Bon" it's a really nice mauvy colour that compliments my skin tone and doesn't wash me out but I've also been really loving the Maybelline Baby Lips in Hydrate, its really moisturising and I included them in my previous post if you want to know more about them.
5. Go to moisturiser?
My go to moisturiser is anyone that belongs to the brand Simple, all their products make my skin feel really soft, smooth and hydrated, probably because most of their products tend to be water based and I have combination skin and these products avoid any clogging in my pores.
6. Go to colours for the eyes?
I usually go for gold/bronze/chocolate shades no matter what the season may be but during Autumn I love wearing plum and cranberry shades in the crease mixed with a chocolate brown colour. SO PRETTY.
7. Favourite music or band/ singer to listen to?
I don't really have a particular band/singer that I like listening to during Autumn but I am really loving The Weeknd's Kiss Land album and Drake's Hold On, we're going home. I been listening a lot to Pia Mia's cover of Hold on, I'll leave the link to her cover at the end of this post for guys to listen to.
8. Favourite outfit to wear?
My favourite outfit to wear is just a fitted jeans/leggings with a big cosy jumper a scarf paired with combat boots and cool gold jewellery.
9. Autumn treat?
Cookies and hot/cold milk which is an all year round treat for me!
10. Favourite place to be?
My favourite place to be would probably be at home watching a good film. nowhere too complicated.
Hoped that you enjoyed this tag!

I'd love for you to do this tag even if you're not tagged and tweet it to me I will definitely read it!

Mini Beauty Haul.

Hey you guys! feels like such a long time.... I have been completely M.I.A for these past few weeks and that's because the new school year has started and I started my first year of A-Levels which has been really hectic so far and I've only been for 3 weeks but I won't babble on too much about that I'll leave it for another post.

 Without further or do, I should probably start telling you what I got in this mini haul of mine, which is micro- mini by the way, its just a few things that I picked up that I have been wanting for quite some time now.

Maybelline, Baby Lips

When I found out that Baby Lips were coming to the UK I was really excited! after reading/watching so many American blog posts and YouTube videos about them, I couldn't wait to try them out and see what all they hype was about. I decided to get two of them, one in "Hydrate" which is just a plain lip balm with SPF 20 which is an added bonus for this up coming cold weather and the other in "Cherry Me "which is a tinted red lip balm which is buildable if you are going for deeper red. I have used both of them and they are really moisturising and stay on for about 8 hours if you don't eat or drink anything within those 8 hours which is pretty impossible for me. They are sold for £2.99 each which is pretty expensive for what they are but the packaging is pretty cute so I think that makes up for it. Will I purchase them again? yes, because I want to try out the others and..... how could I forget they smell great!

Real Techniques, Expert Face Brush

Well.... We all know the Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman, one of the Pixiwoo sisters from the YouTube world its really famous on the blogsphere spectrum. I personally love Real Techniques brushes I think that they are the best high street brand brushes out there which means that they are really inexpensive, this brush cost me £5.99 which is half the price, there was a buy one get one half price offer . I really like having full coverage and this brush does exactly that so if you like that as well I highly recommend you get this brush, its really soft and densely packed which I love and... I'm going to go into too much detail because you've probably read quite a lot about this brush already.

 Maybelline, The rocket volume express mascara

This another really famous beauty product on the blogsphere, which I have really got late compared to some others. I'm not going even lie I found this mascara to be really disappointing, I really thought that I was going to like it a lot more than I did especially because I'm such a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras. I didn't really like the consistency of it or the wand in fact, the wand is quite plasticy which is not something that I like and doesn't really add much volume to my eyelashes either they just clump together. Maybe... I have to wait for it to get a little bit older so that the consistency can get thicker because I usually prefer my mascaras after I've had them for a few weeks, am I the only one? Overall the first impressions of this mascara was not great but maybe I just need to be patient with it!
Let me know in the comments if you've tried any of these products and what's your thoughts on them?
