Nail Varnish Picks
So I’ll wear whatever nail varnish I want to when I want to wear it. But I do find that subconsciously the seasons do influence my choices and I thought of share what I think are going to be some of my favourite nail varnishes this autumn. I just went through my collection and picked out ten nail varnishes, without looking at my other selections and it seems like I’m really into greens and browns this autumn, with a couple of others added in.
This first colour is A-England’s Dragon. This is a true green nail varnish with loads of holographic silver shimmer in it. And like the majority of A-England nail varnishes you can get away with only using one coat.
Sweater Weather Tag
So this is a tag going around YouTube at the moment, which I just had to do. It’s a bit like an updated version of the I ♥ Autumn Tag from this time last year and I’ve watched so many of the Sweater Weather Tag videos recently. And since I’m English I’ve replaced any references to Fall to Autumn, simply because I’m like that!
1. Favourite candle scent?
Currently it’s Cinnamon Sugared Donut from Bath & Body Works. This is one of the few Bath & Body Works candles I have tried, I bought one off eBay last year after hearing loads about it on YouTube and completely fell in love with the scent so I bought another one this autumn.

Casual Autumn Night At A Show
It seems like ages since I’ve done an Outfit of the Day post. I’ve thought about and even planned out in my head a couple over the last two months or so but I never got around to actually doing them. But anyway, on to this actual post.
So the other night mum and I went to see Jesus Christ Superstar. And although this can be classed as a theatre show, this show was not playing in theatres but instead in arenas. Therefore I didn’t feel the need to go all theatre dressy and actually dress up. Instead I went decidedly casual. Seeing Jesus Christ Superstar (especially with a cast including Tim Minchin, Ben Forster, Melanie Chisholm, Chris Moyles and Alex Hansen) was a dream come true for me and I really didn’t want to have to spend time worrying about what I was wearing. My main aim was to be comfortable, there was no way I was going to risk missing anything or not giving the show my full attention because I felt uncomfortable.

Autumn Evening Trip To The Cinema With Mum
This is an old outfit of the day post, which somehow I never got round to posting. It’s from back in November when Mum and I went to see James Bond at the cinema.
I never know what to wear to the cinema, I always seem to get cold and it has been frosty on a night recently. So in the end I ended up wrapping up warm. I wore my favourite pair of skinny jeans from Henry Holland (which can be seen in another of my Outfit of the Day posts both here and here). I wore them tucked into a new pair of boots a friend picked up from Select in the sale for £6 which look identical to her pair from All Saints, which needless to say I’m very happy with!

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.

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!
