Autumn Style and October Beauty Essentials


Shirt and chinos


I have been giving my wardrobe a little overhaul lately and rediscovered these Autumn brown chinos I picked up from the Oxfam Boutique store in Cardiff city centre about two years ago and totally forgot about them, perhaps because not long after getting them I feel pregnant and let's just say they have no give in them so quickly were made redundant but I'm really enjoying wearing them now and thats the fantastic thing about putting clothes away during the summer to be welcomes again at the change of the season.

I also find Autumn not only the time for jumpers but also long sleeved shirts and this Vero Moda one has always been a bit of a favourite as I am huge fan of monochrome and love the white with the black edges. I've paired it up with my Ralph Lauren bag and Bronx Brogues for a simple and causal look perfect for a spot of lunch in the city.

I don't know about you but I certainly find this time of the year really starts to take a toll on my skin. I have combination skin which at times can be quite oily but I find as soon as it starts to get colder my skin becomes dryer and more sensitive and find now more than ever I need a skin routine which starts from the essentials up. I have been putting two new Bare Minerals products to the test of late and I can only give praise to how soft, healthy and moisturised my skin feels at the moment.

The first thing I do when I get up now is use the Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam which is gentle enough on my skin to use daily and is infused with mineral-rich sea salts, elderflower and rosemary extracts and is suitable for all skin types including those that are little sensitive such as mine. What I really love about this cleaning foam is how creamy it is and makes my skin feel really refreshed and lifting away any last traces of makeup and impurities.

After I have used the cleaning foam I move onto the restorative rich cream which is perfect for those who have dry skin or in my case occasional times when your skin is prone to becoming dry. This cream feels really luxurious and a little really does go a long way in keeping your skin feeling soft and youthfully smooth and is a must have for busy mama's whose skin gets affected by a hectic and stressful lifestyle and not only does this cream aim to moisturise but also diminish those early signs of ageing.

At this time of the year I also like to use a light and almost summery scent as if to let the warmer seasons linger for longer which is why this month I am opting for a touch of Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I often overlook perfume but I do find it's great for lifting ones mood especially as the days become short and the nights longer, it's like a quick little pamper.

What beauty products have you been using this Autumn?

  2. LOVE that shirt - I think Vero Moda are a little under-rated, I seem to buy loads of their stuff from ASOS! I still need to find my autumn fashion vibe so this is helping with inspiration

  4. I've been using a Clinique face wash recently with some good old Nivea cream. I find my face is OK at this time of year, but my hands and elbows are the ones to suffer! I get such awful dry skin I have to slather on huge amounts of cream and coconut oil. It's definitely a downside of the colder weather.
