My Favourite Autumn/Winter Nail Polishes

I love painting my nails in the winter. With the festive season coming up, it's seems to be when I get most creative with my nails (expect to see a festive nails post during blogmas!). For most of the season, I like to whip out more darker, vampy colours, but they're not always appropriate, and I think I have found my new favourite nude polish to wear on those days when something a little more subtle is required.

Satin Taupe Versus....Satin Taupe!

I was flicking through one of the recent Avon brochures, when I noticed that one of their True Colour Eyeshadows was called Satin Taupe and looked very similar to one of my favourite eyeshadows, MAC's Satin Taupe. With MAC's single eyeshadows costing a whopping £10 each, I decided to order Avon's cheaper alternative, just £4, and compare the two. Have I found a good dupe?

Autumn/Winter Yankee Candle Haul

I'm a huge fan of burning candles all year round, but there's nothing like snuggling up under a blanket on a dark evening with a festive candle burning. Yankee Candle's festive fragrances are my all time favourite, especially the spicy ones, so it's around this time of year that I like to stock up (even though I still have a few left from last year!)

Hydrating Face Masks For All Budgets

As winter draws nearer, more of us are reaching for hydrating face masks to give our skin the extra boost of moisture that the cold weather is taking away from us. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people who suffers from dry skin all year round, so I've well and truly tested the market and found what I think are the best hydrating face masks available. No matter what your budget is, they'll be something here for you.
