Autumn is well and truly upon us, I hope you all enjoyed and made the most of your extra hours sleep this morning? ;) I love Autumn for so many reasons, which I might share in another post but the concept of todays post is all about my AW14 style and fashion, along with some gorgeous make up products and pretty accessories.

My outfit during the colder months usually consists of a pair of thick leggings/tights - Primark is my go to place for these items as they are super cheap, and of decent quality too. Along with these I would usually grab a dress or long top - I got this floral V Neck Skater Dress last year in the sale for just £10, the colours and style are perfect for Autumn! My favourite jackets are leather look jackets, this one was also from New Look - which my Fiance' bought for me about 3 years ago as a Christmas present, I love it and its lasted so well. 

One of the main things we all head out to buy as the colder months set in is a new pair of boots. Mine are the Black Buckle Trim Calf High Boots from New Look. These stylish leather look boots with gold buckle are ideal for the transition from Autumn to Winter. They are really comfortable, a great fit(especially if you have wide calves due to the elasticated strip up the back) and they keep your legs and feet warm too because they are higher fitted than ankle boots etc - nobody likes cold feet! 

I took a trip to Primark the other day to check out their new A/W stock, and although I didn't come out with much I did pick up this leather look black bag with rose gold zippers and buckles for just £5 in the sale. It is an ideal size great for carrying your essentials and has both a shoulder strap and handles! My new favourite purse is this gorgeous Barbour British Waterways Purse - Winter Candlebridge from the Barbour Lifestyle Collection AW14. I've always loved the appearance of Barbour clothing and would love to get one of their quilted coats or jackets one day. The purse is a gorgeous burnt burgandy shade with floral print, and then the inside is a deep leafy green shade with plenty of card slots and a zipper section too. It really looks and feels amazing quality so I'm expecting this to last me for many more years to come!

I recently got my eyes tested and was told that my eyesight had become slightly worse, so needed to get some new prescription glasses. I couldn't really afford glasses from the Opticians, so I looked to www.firmoo.co.uk (For my non-uk readers you should try www.firmo.com) for Online Prescription Glasses, and was lucky enough to be offered a pair for review. I chose the style #F1001 in Black,  which are half rimmed, wayfarer style glasses. I upgraded my glasses to thinner lenses and anti-glare which comes in really handy for driving now that the darker nights are here! They arrived within 1-2 weeks to the UK, and came complete with a stylish glasses case and cleaning cloth, a small screwdriver kit to tighten the glasses and some spare screws.

Having long hair is a nightmare when its so windy outside but I opted for this half up-half down bouffant style, along with my latest new hair accessory from a wonderful shop called Cameliha Hair Accesories. I picked this Gold Flowers Headband, which is made up of gold metallic flowers across the front and then a black elasticated back for a good fit. This is perfect for Autumn and really ties in with the rest of my black and gold accessories. The product not only arrived next day, but it was beautifully hand packed, so I would totally recommend this company as they are passionate and caring about their products and customers! 

Finally, we all know that our makeup look changes as we transition from Summer to Autumn, and No7 have some gorgeous new released for this season. This includes this No7 Matte Lip Crayon - Raspberry Wine which I've donned on my lips many times so far and absolutely love the colour and the wear! Also the No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow Trio - In The Navy which I have used the light champagne shade to highlight under my brows, and the navy shade under my lower lashes to emphasise my eyes and add a pop of colour. 

I really hope you have enjoyed this post, its something a little different! What are your favourite colours and trends for Autumn?

Bargain Beauty Products Haul Direct Cosmetics

I recently discovered a website called Direct Cosmetics who offer a huge range of make up, cosmetics, skincare, haircare and fragrances from loads of brand names and high street brands at discounted prices! There are some fantastic bargains and I have a bit of a beauty haul to share with you today!

Elizabeth Arden Hydrating Mask - £6.99 (RRP £22.00)

I'm a sucker for face masks, and they make up probably about 80% of my skincare stash - I just can't get enough of them, and there is always a different face mask to try each day. This Elizabeth Arden Hydrating Mask is an intensive hydrating treatment. The formula is similar to a clay mask, but doesn't dry as stiff and is not tight or uncomfortable. Regular use maintains suppleness of complexion for younger and firmer looking skin.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Nourishing Lip Balm - £6.99 (RRP £15.99)

Now that the harsher and colder winter months are setting in, our lips need a little bit more care and protection. This is where the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Nourishing Lip Balm comes into play, as it combines the right combination of vitamins and minerals to indulge your lips with the moisture they need to stay soft and smooth. And will also protect from damage. The squeezy tube has a slanted applicator for an easy gliding motion across the lips! This provides everything your lips need to look radiant, healthy and beautiful all day long!

Elizabeth Arden Double Density Maximum Volume Mascara - £7.99 (RRP £24.00)

It's really tough for me to find mascaras that I actually like, and can wear comfortably throughout the day, as my eyes are quite sensitive. The Elizabeth Arden Double Density Volume Mascara is ideal as it's safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers because it doesn't smear, flake or rub off. Not to mention the results are amazing, as you can see in the photo above with one eye wearing two layers of the mascara and my other showing my natural lashes! It both lengthens and volumizes - providing fantastic results!

I've been a huge fan of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains since they were released! I remember rushing out to buy a few of the shades as soon as they were in store! My all time favourite is the shade "Lovesick" which is a bright and bold hot pink colour! The pampering balm fused with a lightweight lip stain gives you softer, smoother lips with a flush of glossy colour. The products have an enticing minty, lip tingling fragrance, along with a smooth and moisturising formula for truly kissable lips! I guarantee you that these products literally last almost all day!
