Autumn is my favourite season by far. I love wearing over sized jumpers, snuggling up by the fire with a fluffy blanket and watching the gorgeous golden colours from the window. Not only that, the colder weather sees the return of slow cooked casseroles and stews with homemade crusty bread - some of my favourite comfort foods.
It's about time I prepare for the new season so I've had a look online and pulled out a few items I can't wait to purchase. I'm currently coveting grey, browns and reds in terms of clothing and makeup, to compliment the autumn colours, and sweet fragrances to match the scents of rich desserts and pastries that I will soon have baking away in the oven!
1. Pink sleepwear - River Island
Pink and black is a pretty combo and although I don't usually wear pyjamas I really like this set.
2. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet - The Perfume Shop
This is such a lovely perfume with hints of citrus fruit, musk and roses. I smelt it in Glamour magazine recently and I now need it in my collection.
3. YSL Eyeshadow Palette - Boots
This palette features lots of lovely essential shades for a smokey look.
4. Rhubarb Crumble Candle - Yankee
The delicious scent of this will certainly make my home inviting. It's nice to watch a movie by candlelight in the dark evenings too.
5. Socks - Peacocks
Thick socks are a must and these look super soft and cosy - I like the pom pom detailing too.
6. Panda mug - I Want One of Those
A mug of hot chocolate is another seasonal necessity, with plenty of marshmallows of course, and this mug is adorable!
7. Rocky Road Flavour Hot Chocolate
I tried this a few years ago and it has been a favourite ever since. I should really stock up (the caramel one is tasty as well).
8. Hat - Amazon
This thick beanie with bobble will keep my hair in place when the wind strikes during the school runs.
9. Red belted dress - Dorothy Perkins
Plaid is really popular at the moment and this shirt dress really appealed to me.
10. Boots - New Look
Being 6ft I tend to opt for low heels and I love these khaki suedette ruched boots.
