Happy Halloween!!

Hi everyone,
I'm so sorry for the lack of posts recently, I've been adjusting to life as a Year 11 and trying to deal with the stresses that come with your final year of school. I decided to do this to post to try and ease me back into blogging. Also, just a note to say sorry for the bad quality photos, I used my phone instead of my camera!!

Autumn tag

With the days getting shorter and the boots and coats making an appearance, I think it's finally time to say goodbye to summer. After seeing this tag on Alovesvintage's blog here, I decided I wanted to try my first ever tag post!!


What is your favourite thing about it?
I love going for dog walks on those crisp and slightly chilly days with my family and then heading home, putting on something cosy and watching films.

Favourite drink?
It has to be a hot chocolate with all the toppings- cream and marshmallows galore!!

Favourite candle/scent?
My all time favourite candle is a Yankee candle in Clean cotton or baby powder, I love those sort of scents to relax me.

Best lipstick?
In the Autumn, I love using berry colours and more dark shades.

Go to moisturiser?
I use something with a medium-thick consistency as my skin can go very dry as we start to go into winter.

Go to colour for the eyes?
All year round, I love using neutral colours and my go-to palette is definitely MUA's heaven and earth. In my dreams I would own the Urban decay naked palette!!

Favourite music or band to listen to?
I find that in the Autumn, artists like Ben Howard, Ron Pope and One Republic are really relaxing to listen to.

Favourite outfit to wear?
Jeans, a cosy jumper and boots or for a more dressed up look, disco pants, pumps and a nice blouse.

Autumn treat?
My autumn treat is probably buying loads of lovely candles and then sitting in my room with them all lit up, fairy lights on, watching a film.

Favourite place to be?
I love being cosied up in my bed but I also love going on crisp, autumn walks.

L'Oreal Preference Wild Ombre Kit

I've always loved the ombre/dip dye trend and when I first saw that L'Oreal had launched a do-it yourself kit, I couldn't wait to try it!! After putting it off for quite a while, I finally decided to purchase it - and I'm so happy with the results!!

Before:


 After:

I went for shade 2, for dark blonde to medium brown hair. The kit was really simple to use and the instructions easy to follow. I started off with the very tips of my hair, and left it on for 10 minutes, then I moved a bit further up my hair, starting from the bottom and going up to about my shoulders, and left that on for 40 minutes. I'm really pleased with the overall effect as it looks exactly how I wanted it and I have to say I'd definitely purchase this kit again, at only £6.99, it's amazing value for money!!
