Fall and Winter setting in means more cosy nights in with comfort food, watching some great TV one-offs (or catch-up TV if you’ve been busy) and trying out some of the most tempting beauty treats…

The star of the show in Bobbi Brown’s Autumnal collection (above) is its 8 shade smokey eyeshadow palette which will remind you of a box of chocolates.  Those natural looking nail shades have the perfect balance of earthy freshness and wrapped up comfy-ness for the winter months, too!

Today the thing that got me excited was seeing Charli XCX’s limited edition redesigns of Impulse body spray.  Look out for plenty of hot pink on cans of Rock & Love and her racy kissing lips and autograph on Vanilla Kisses; they’re currently on sale at 97p each at Superdrug, which is better than half price! 

Essence The Gel Nail Polish in Wonderfuel, £1.60 in Wilkinson stores

Continuing on the budget beauty trail, I’m a big fan of “oil-slick” or colour switch shimmer nail colours, I have been since trying the ultimate multichrome, Essie For The Twill Of It (Fall 2013).  Little wonder I am currently loving Essence The Gel Nail Polish in Wonderfuel.  It’s indigo purple with a heavy sky-blue shimmer.  There were only two bottles of Wonderfuel left in Wolverhampton the other day, it’s a definite sell-out! 

 Gucci Bamboo EDP, £68 for 50ml at Boots 

If, like me, you look for an air of mystery in a fragrance, and your signature scent is floriental, you’ll love the powdery white florals in Gucci Bamboo.  This is the type of scent that evokes memories of being under the sunset in a favourite vacation spot. 


It’s been all change for my hair this weekend… bye-bye beachy, sun kissed golden-brown, hello deep espresso.  I couldn’t think of a better  introduction to the cosy coffee months than L’oreal Mousse Absolue in 415 Iced Chocolate Brunette.  Mousse and foam style hair colours are much easier to achieve an all over coverage than conventional hair colours.  The beauty is the formula which means every bit is massaged in with little or no chance of mess or wastage.
