We're feeling very seasonal at the moment, what with Halloween and the weather changing. Autumn is an unusual season, there's so much beauty in the decaying nature, with the crunch of the leaves and the rain pattering at the windows. It's a time of change and a season of anticipation for the winter, so inspired by this we've decided to share some of our favourite things about autumn with you all!
Autumn inspired makeup is easily one of our favourite looks in the year, it moves away from summer neon shades and eases us into the deep reds and gold sparkles of winter. With warm browns, deep berry reds and our favourite red lip ever, Mac - Russian Red, we love how these looks can suit all skin tones. Those afraid to step out into a bold lip, a berry lip-stain is an excited compromise!
Is there anything better than snuggling up to a pet when the weather's cold? Especially ones as majestic as Atticus and Charlie! Although we've noticed that our pets also do not like the cold, and tend to gravitate towards the warm things in the house, i.e. laptops, blankets and general personal space..
This is a suitably autumnal bake, using warming spices to make this excellent and deliciously soft carrot and walnut muffins with a cream cheese frosting. Recipe will appear on the blog soon!
We're both notoriously bad enablers when it comes to shopping together, we spur each other to 'just try it on, what's the harm??' and usually end up spending all our wages and suffering from a sad yet stylish case of buyers guilt. That being said, we love shopping for the new season, we tend to have a few shopping trips a year where the excuse for buying things we don't need is 'but it's (insert season/seasonal activity here) soon!' and come home with some lovely stuff. Autumn fashion is always a great time to embrace purples, reds, beiges and browns and we take full advantage of this. (L: little side note - any readers with red hair, do not be afraid to wear these colours! I think the clash of ginge with deep reds looks lovely, embrace the bold!)
