Lunch and Shopping with Mum on a Warm Autumn Day
So yesterday I met my mum once she’d finished work and we went for lunch and done a bit of shopping. Now, it was one of those days yesterday when I really didn’t know what to wear. It wasn’t overly warm, but it wasn’t overly cold either. And with going out for lunch and shopping I never really want to wear a jacket or a coat because when I’m in and out of shops I’m always taking it on and off.
So in the end I ended up chucking on a long-sleeved grey knit jumper dress, which has a really nice yellow, blue and white detailing on the hem. And I just wore it over some plain black leggings and my knee high brown boots. The dress is from New Look and my mum got me it last Christmas. I’m pretty certain my leggings were just from Primark.
So, I ordered my first ever products from Lush they other day, which if you’ve read any of my previous blog posts you’ll know I was very excited about. I got a lot of bath products which I think are just going to be so lovely for the Autumn and Winter. I ordered all of the products from lush.co.uk and they had pretty quick shipping.
So, I’ll start with soaps. I got three, two of which I believe are in the Christmas section and may therefore be limited edition. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but I’m definitely going to have to cut them into more manageable sizes to use and then keep the rest in zip lock bags or something. I’m really excited to use all of them, usually I only use liquid soap, so it’ll be nice to try something different.
The first one I got is called Northern Lights, and it looks really bright! I will admit that one of the main things that attracted me to this was the name, but it actually smells really good. I’m hopeless at describing smells though, but I definitely detect a hint of citrus. The only thing I’m slightly disappointed about is that I didn’t get a piece with some of the bright green on! I may order another one as it is in the Christmas (limited edition) section and then cut it up and put in a clear jar or something. I think that would look quite pretty.
My First Time At Lush
I’m so excited! I’ve just got my first ever Lush products and I can’t wait to try them all. I’ve always been a little bit nervous about using Lush as there are so many products to choose from and I kept being told it was really expensive. But I’ve been wanting to try some of their products for a while, so I finally bit the bullet and bought some.

Autumn Shopping Trip
So today, my mum, younger sister and I went shopping to York, which is a lovely historic city about an hour’s drive from where we live. And it was one of those lovely autumn days which I love. There was a clear bright light blue sky and the sun was shining, but goodness was there a nip in the air, it did feel quite cold this morning. We set off quite early and when we arrived it was probably only about 8°C (about 46°F) although by the time we left it had got up to about 12°C (about 53°F).
I always struggle with what to wear when I go shopping, particularly at this time of year, as I don’t want to wrap up too warm as the shops are always really warm with their heating on, and then outside it’s cold.
York is a pretty big place, so comfortable shoes are a must. I wore what is probably my most worn type of shoes which is my black style ugg boots. They are so comfy, they’re warm and they pretty much go with any outfit I can chuck together. Mine are from River Island, but you can get similar from loads of places. These also featured in my last Outfit of the Day post, to check that out click here.
I ♥ Autumn Tag
Okay, so this is apparently a tag going around on YouTube but I’m definitely a person who loves the autumn and since I don’t have the facility to make videos I thought I’d answer the questions is a blog post. The first person I saw do this tag is one of my all time favourite YouTubers, Andréa Matillano, check out her channel here, she is amazing, I watch all her videos. I think it was originally an I ♥ Fall tag, but I’m English and we call it autumn! So onto the questions!
1. Favourite Autumn lip product?
At the moment the lip product I’m reaching for the most is a Benefit Lip Gloss in Who Does Your Work, which is a nice dark reddish colour, with a slightly purpley look, but it isn’t too dark. Or if I’m wanting a very natural look I’m loving Vaseline’s Limited Edition Lip Therapy in Pink Bubbly, which just gives the palest pink tint to your lips and it also smells delicious!
Outfit of the Day
Fresh Autumn Morning at the Seaside
Welcome to my first outfit of the day post! It’s one of my favourite types of day today. It’s a beautiful autumn day today here in the north east of England. We’ve got a bright blue sky, but there is a nip in the air, it is quite cool. But I love days like that, it just feels so fresh! It’s wasn’t too cold, just nice and fresh and crisp. It was about 10°C, which is about 50°F.
And I’ve spent most of the day at the beach and it was lovely. I love the seaside. But it was definitely not shorts and flip-flops weather, more like jumper, coat and boots weather. I don’t actually have a photo of me wearing the outfit, although I have a picture of the clothes, as no-one knows that I keep a blog, and I didn’t feel like answering questions on why I wanted my photo took.
What I was wearing is dark denim skinny jeans, tucked into black ugg style boots. A beigey coloured knit jumper with hints of red, yellow and blue in it over a white strap top, a pale blue scarf with a grey floral print on it and a blue coat.
Nail Varnish Review
A-England – Order of the Garter
I am currently obsessed with the A-England nail varnish brand. Not only is the quality brilliant, but I also love the themes behind their collection. Order of the Garter is the sixth or seventh A-England nail varnish I’ve used. It’s part of The Legend collection and is named for the highest order of chivalry which can be bestowed upon a knight in English history.
