Transitional Style Haul.

Don't get me wrong, I love being able to wear dresses and bare legs, but you really cannot beat a high neck jumper, a cosy scarf and a good pair of boots! The transition from summer into autumn is one of my favourite times for style (please someone reassure me that's a good excuse to shop?) I love being able to wear more layers without the need for a coat that just hides an entire outfit, and I think that's what makes it the perfect season for dressing. I've found myself doing a fair bit of shopping over the past two weeks so I thought I would share the pieces I've picked up.


Homeware Wishlist.

Browsing homeware online has almost become a new hobby, out with the wedding in with copious amounts of scrolling looking for interior inspo. I thought I would share what's currently on my wishlist, we're at the point where we have the essentials and just want to collect other bits as we go along, I feel like a home is always a work in progress when it comes to decor and making it feel all the more cosy, but there are a few things on my wishlist at the moment that we're hoping to add over the next few months.


My Morning Skincare Routine.

I used to be a makeup gal through and through, don't get me wrong I do still love it, I think the draws full of the stuff demonstrates that - but my love for skincare is on another level! Since finding products that actually make a difference I've been looking after my skin more than ever. Getting married earlier this year also introduced me to some new products, and made me even more conscious to stick to a routine and get the most out of it.


My Thoughts On University 2 Years After Graduating.

Does anyone else see September as some form of fresh start? Even now I have this urge to buy a whole new wardrobe and stock up on some fancy pens. In other ways education feels like an age ago, it was only when my mum reminded me earlier this week that this time 5 years ago I got accepted into University that I even realised it was that time of year again. University is the unknown, I had so many expectations of what my time would be like, and what my life would be like once I graduated - really, nothing was exactly how I expected, so I thought I would share my honest thoughts on university 2 years on.


My Natural Makeup Look.

When it comes to makeup during the summer months I tend to keep it pretty natural looking - no, we're not usually blessed with a heatwave - but anything over 18 degrees and the thought of wearing heavy makeup terrifies me. I thought it was about time I shared my natural makeup look and essentials, I'm opting for a light foundation, cream products and a new lip combo that gives me naturally fuller and even looking lips ... The kinda makeup that insinuates that I'm blessed with good skin and wake up with perfected brow.


Lessons I've Learnt When It Comes To Blogging & Creating Content.

Firstly, I'm definitely not claiming to be the most amazing blogger by writing this post, more, I've been doing this a fair few years now so I feel like I'm kind of in the swing of things. I've picked up quite a few tips along the way and made my fair share of mistakes and now I know what works best for me when it comes to creating content.
