I love Autumn, I like wrapping up warm in cosy jumpers and boots. I like wearing big chunky scarves and gloves and I love sitting in front of the TV, heating on with a big cup of Hot Chocolate with cream and marshmallows. 

I also love Autumnal make up, I love getting out those browns, reds and oranges and playing around with some new looks. Today i'm gonna share a few products i've been loving this season. 

First up, i'm sticking with the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation, I've really been loving it, (read my full review here) I have found my skins been a little dry due to the weather and it's been a little patchy on my dry areas but with a decent moisturiser i've been able to combat this. To apply i'm using the Blank Canvas cosmetics F08 Dome buffing brush to get a really flawless and natural finish. It's a gorgeous brush and works really well with the All Nighter foundation. It blends really well and doesn't leave your skin looking cakey.

I loved using the Nip+Fab Highlight palette all summer and love love love it! I thought i'd switch it up and try the contour palette for the autumn months as I don't need to look so bronzed and shimmery. The Contour palette is a lovely matte powder contour kit, it's super easy to use. The powders blend really easily and the shades are really good. I've been using the F15 small tapered brush with this palette as it's great for contouring, I actually use it for under the eye and highlighting as I prefer to use a bigger brush for my bronzer. 

I've heard such good things about the Soap and Glory Supercat eyeliner and have no idea why i've never tried it before! OMG it's so good. It's super easy to use, It's only £6.50 so super affordable. It's suck a dark black colour and just applies so easily. One sweep and your done, it's just so good. I'm going to be repurchasing this over and over. It lasts really well, whatever the weather. 

I'm still loving the NYX Tame and Frame brow pomade, another one I'm going to need to repurchase. Again it's super affordable and easy to get hold of. Mines maybe a little dried up now but i've had it for ages!! I've been using the Eye of Horus Brow Fibre extend too alongside the pomade for a few months and i'm seriously loving it, I actually have a full review coming up later in the week.

For my eyes i've been using the Morphe 35T palette, it just screams Autumn! I love the mixture of matte and shimmer shades. There's so many amazing shades and they are amazing quality, so easy to apply and blend! I'm also loving my Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette as this has some lovely shades that are just perfect for Autumn, again really good quality shadows that are easy to blend and work with. This has some really good shades for when you don't have time to do a whole smokey eye but just want a sweep of colour. I'm loving the shade Commando for everyday, Just a sweep over the eyelid and i'm ready to go, it's a lovely shade for the Autumn season. 

That's my favourite Autumn make up for this season, i've been loving trying out the Blank Canvas Cosmetics brushes as they are just amazing brushes and are actually really affordable. I'd really recommend checking them out if you are in the market for some new brushes. They have a huge selection and lots of colours to choose from.

I'm a big fan of The Body Shop body butters and this one does not disappoint! I wasn't too sure when I saw Vanilla Pumpkin scent as i'm actually not a huge fan of the Pumpkin scent, however when I first smelt this I was pleasantly surprised. The smell is really sweet and i'd say more on the Vanilla side. It's not overpowering at all, it's sweet but not sickly. The actual product is great, if you've used The Body Shop's body butters before then you know they absorb into the skin quickly and don't leave your skin feeling sticky, it leaves your skin soft and subtle and feeling hydrated. Great for dry skin and I have quite sensitive skin but don't have any problems with products from The Body Shop.

The body butter is actually showing as out of stock right now but there's a shower gel and hand cream from this range which sound amazing. I'd love to have the hand cream in my bag for the Autumn months

If you haven't tried the body butters from The Body Shop they are well worth checking out, they have so many different scents to choose from, they actually have a few in the sale right now as well.

I never expected for my skin to change so much during pregnancy but it has actually gone really dry. Dry skin was one of the first things I noticed during early pregnancy. My scalp and hands went so dry, I couldn't believe that this tiny little thing inside me was causing so many changes to my body.

I've been keeping my skin well moisturised throughout the pregnancy. I've been using a few different products but today i'm talking about the Burts Bees Mama Bee body oil.

I've been using the oil since very early on in the pregnancy. I've been loving this and their Leg and Foot cream ( which is amazing!! ) The oil smells incredible, it's a lemony smell which I love, however I get a craving for Lemon Drizzle cake everytime I use it.

I've only just started to get a few stretch marks and i'm now 38 weeks pregnant and my skin is stretching alot so I think thats pretty good going. I think if I hadn't moisturised that the stretch marks would be so bad.

The oil rubs in really quickly and leaves your skin feeling so soft. My skin is left feeling nourished and hydrated, it is oily when you apply but dries into the skin right away.

I'm really happy with the Mama Bee range and have also been using the Foot and Leg cream which is lovely, it cools your legs and feet right now and smells very minty which is gorgeous. I have a few products from their baby range so once bubba is here I will give them a go and let you know how we get on.

Our baby girl is due anytime now, my due date is just under 2 weeks away but I have a feeling that she's going to make an early arrival. We have started to get her nursery together but she won't actually be sleeping in there for a few months yet as they have to sleep in your room for the first 6 months. Her room so far has a cot and a few toys and her clothes but its very neutral and plain and I just want to add a few pretty girly bits to make it look pretty and girly. I'm not planning on spending loads of money on her room as we rent so won't be living here forever.

I thought i'd just do a post featuring a few room ideas and products that i've spotted that I want to get or have got already for bubba's room. I will be doing a nursery tour once i've got a few more bits and once her room is finished.

I want her room to be pretty but not over the top, I just want a few nice simple prints and patterns. I'm thinking a pink, white and grey colour scheme. I will be keeping the walls white, as I mentioned above we are renting right now so I don't fancy spending lots of money painting. I have seen little reusable wall decals online so might get something to add a little bit of colour/ pattern to the walls. I was thinking maybe some polka dots in pink or rose gold to add a little something. I am planning on putting up a couple of picture shelves so I can have a few nice prints on the walls. I've picked out a couple here, the prints will be quite simple and I will get some plain white or black frames from Ikea.

We do need to get a blind for the nursery too as we only have a little curtain up at the moment and I want to get a blackout blind so that the room is really dark during the day so it's easier for the baby to sleep. Ambition Blinds have a huge selection of blinds including a selection of blackout roller blinds and vertical blinds. Around the window area I want to hang some bunting or fairy lights too to make it pretty and girly.

I've actually got this rug from Amara ready to pop in the nursery, It's a nice grey and white rug with stars on so it's neutral and could easily be used in any room, not just a nursery. I think the grey and white will pull everything together and it's a really decent size.

I want to get some nice monochrome bedding, i'm loving this half moon pattern and have managed to find some fitted sheets for the cot in this print which i'm really excited about. I will get a few pink sheets too but I was thinking of keeping the bedding monochrome and then getting a few pretty cushions and toys to make her cot prettier. I love this cloud cushion from Sass and Belle and think its perfect for a nursery.

I want to make a DIY mobile for bubbas cot, I've been thinking about making one with clouds on or wool pom poms on. I will be sticking to the pink, grey and white theme. I really need to make a start on this as shes going to be here soon.

That's it really so I think the room is going to be pretty clean and white with little pops of pink splashed around. I want to keep things pretty simple and just add little bits of pattern here and there. I think once she starts playing with toys and reading books that there will be plenty of colour around but for now I just want it to look pretty and be somewhere she can get a good nights sleep.

You may have seen Clint featured on the blog last week, we have collaborated with Boohoo this month and they have kindly sent over some bits for Clint. If you didn't see his last outfit then check it out here. CLINT WEARS BOOHOO THIS SEASON

Boohoo have a really good selection of menswear, they also have a good selection of sizes and colours. Clint was after a few basics to add to his wardrobe this season so he picked out a few t-shirts and this lovely grey hoodie.

He's teamed this dark grey hoodie with his skinny jeans and trainers so a comfy but casual everyday look. He's actually wore this hoodie a few times now and it's a really nice thick material. It's very cosy and soft so it's perfect for the colder weather we've been having.

As I mentioned above he also picked out a few new basic t-shirts. Boohoo have such a good selection of t-shirts in all different sizes, colours and styles. They are really affordable and are a really nice quality. He picked out this nice khaki colour muscle fit crew neck which I think really suits him, Khaki is one of my favourite colours for the Autumn.

He also picked out  a two pack of muscle fit t-shirts, in Black and Grey. They have other multi-packs of t-shirts so you can easily replace your old tops for some nice new ones.  As you can see they fit really well and are a really nice quality.

Check out Boohoo if you are after some really good quality menswear. Clint was really happy with all of the items he received. They all fitted really well and are all lovely quality. I'm sure he will be placing another Boohoo order very soon as he's seen a few jackets that he likes for the Winter.

I'm now 37 weeks so baby can arrive at anytime so I've got my bags all packed and ready to go by the front door. I have already done a post on what I have packed for baby so if you missed that you can go and read that here 

These are the items that I have packed for myself. Clint is going to be bringing a bag too and the baby has her own bag.

I've tried to think of products that will make my labor easier and i've tried to pack everything I think i'm going to need. I understand that half of this stuff will probably be left in the bag and never actually used but at least I have it if I need it. I'm gonna write a list of the bits I've packed and if you think i've missed anything please let me know.

First of all how cute is my bag? It's from Hunkemoller, they actually specialise in Lingerie but also stock other bits like bags, sportswear and much more. I thought the striped trolley bag would be perfect as my hospital bag as it's quite big so I can fit everything inside but it also has wheels aswell as two decent sized straps. Clint will probably be wheeling it along anyway but it will make it so much easier to bring over to the maternity unit. The bag is also waterproof and the quality is amazing, it's really sturdy and thick so no need to worry about overpacking.

Here's what I've packed inside the bag:

Hospital notes and birth plan 

shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste & brushes, deodrant, lipbalm, face wash, dry shampoo, water spray, carex refreshing wipes, tissues, nipple cream, micellar water, cotton pads, day cream.
One of the compartments of my toiletry bag actually detaches so i've tried to put things I will need during labor and things for the shower in here so I can easily bring that part with me instead of taking the whole bag. 

Make up - I probably won't put any on but i've packed a BB cream, brow pencil, mascara and concealer just incase I feel up to it. It's nice to have the choice. 

Tangle Teezer, bobbles and hair grips

Maternity Pads - The bigger the better! 

Breast pads, I've popped a handful into my make up bag

Disposable briefs - easy to throw away and they are designed to fit the maternity pads easily inside. 

Nursing Bras - I have a couple from Bravado, read my review here 

Flip flops - for the shower

Slippers and socks - apparently your feet can get cold, slippers for walking around. 

Nightdresses - I've packed two, a strappy one ( thats old and I don't mind throwing away) 
A nightshirt, I thought this might make breastfeeding easier as I can undo the buttons.

Comfy Clothes - For going home, I've packed a few pairs of comfy knickers, some maternity leggings and a baggy top. 

My Water Bottle - easy to drink out of when lying down. 

My Camera - I want to try and film as much of the birth and have some pictures to remember everything. My camera is right by the bags however I will give this to Clint or my mom once we are in labour.

I might bring my birthing ball and pregnancy pillow with my for labour.

I still need to get some Lucozade drinks and some snacks, these will probably be in Clints bags as will any chargers, phones etc so it's all safe and he can get to everything easily instead of messing up my bag. 

I haven't packed a dressing gown as i've heard you should bring a lightweight one and I feel like I wont use it and it will be a waste. What do you think ? 

Is there anything else I've missed? What must haves did you use during labour?

I thought it might be quite fun to talk about what I do on a day to day basis as my life is pretty much about to change in every way possible. If you didn't know ( WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ? ) i'm pregnant and my baby is due pretty much any day now. We are due on the 4th November but I have a feeling she is going to make an early entrance. Once little bubba is here pretty much everything is going to change, I will have a little person that I have to look after every second of every day.

I'm currently on maternity leave so I've had lots of time to work on my blog and catch up with friends, I've even been watching a few seasons of Gossip Girl on Netflix.

I usually start by waking up and checking my phone, i'll scroll through everything Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, check my emails and Snapchat before getting up and ready for the day.

Once i'm up i'll pop the kettle on and make my breakfast, I've been loving Coco Pops throughout pregnancy. I usually have toast or a bagel with a cup of tea. Another look at my phone and whats going on in the world before getting ready.

My dressing table is in my bedroom and usually i'll watch a few Youtube videos or listen to some music on Spotify whilst I get ready. Once my make up is all done and my hair is straight I go and pick out an outfit and get dressed.

Then it's time to think about blogging and how i'm going to spend the day. I write a lot of lists and will usually try and plan out what blog posts i'm going to write. I'll reply to any emails and spend time working on my blog whether that's writing a product review, taking photos for my blog or I could have an outfit to feature so Clint and I might pop out to take some outfit snaps.

Sometimes i'll go and meet a friend for a coffee in town or have a chilled day at home, as I said i've been watching Netflix, right now i'm watching Gossip Girl. I'm nearly finished season 2, it's soo good.

I'll usually keep an eye on my emails throughout the day via my phone but if there's any important ones i'll pop my laptop back on and reply to a few emails. On the evening's I try and keep them free so I can chill out with Clint. We love watching films and will usually watch a film on Netflix.

As you can see I spend alot of time on my laptop and on my phone so it's really important that I have good broadband. We don't have any problems with our internet and as I said above I use it alot! It's great when were watching our programmes and films online, we don't get any buffering. It's really fast when i'm browsing my social media apps and even uploading videos to Youtube doesn't take me very long at all. Check out what packages Talk Talk Business have to offer.

And that's pretty much it, I love having a nice hot bath and unwinding. get my pj's on and ready for bed. I've been reading a few pregnancy books before bed to relax and get myself ready for bed. I've also been thinking about Christmas alot as it's just around the corner. I've been writing lists and browsing on my phone looking for the perfect gifts for our friends and family. I think were going to be doing most of our Christmas shopping online this year as I really don't fancy doing my Christmas shopping and battling the crowds with a new born baby.

How much do you use your internet at home? Do you use the internet to upload videos and watch films at home like us? Or do you just do abit of online shopping and Skype your family and friends? Use the hashtag #BroadbandandMe to share how important decent internet speeds are to you and what you use your internet for when your at home.

Today's post is an outfit post featuring Clint. We have teamed up with Boohoo Men this season and will be sharing a few of Clint's top picks from the website. 

We had a pretty chilled out Sunday today and went round to Clints parents house for a little while. We've just got home and we've been organizing the flat to get it all ready for the babies arrival. She's due in about 3 weeks so it's getting very real now. 

He's picked out this skinny fit waffle hooded tracksuit in Grey and teamed it with this muscle fit black t-shirt for a casual everyday look. The tracksuit fits really well and is a really nice quality. It's a nice lightweight material and has a waffle texture to it. It's also available in Navy and Black. 

This outfit will be perfect for when were taking the baby on walks to the park or just having a relaxing Sunday afternoon and Clint just wants to be comfortable. The tracksuits are really affordable and as I said above the quality is really good. Boohoo have a huge selection of joggers and tracksuits in lots of different styles and colours so there's something for everyone.  

The Black t-shirt is actually from a pack of two, they are both very nice quality and really affordable. If you are after some nice basics i'd really recommend checking Boohoo out because they have a huge selection of t-shirts in lots of different colours and fits. 

Clint has picked out a few more pieces from Boohoo and we will feature them very soon so keep your eyes peeled for more outfit posts from Clint.

I'm now 37 weeks pregnant and it's all getting very real! We had discussions earlier on in the pregnancy about having a C-section around now but that's no longer the case but it's crazy to think that any time now our little bubba could make an appearance.

I've been having alot of twinges and aches and pains so i'm hoping that she will arrive this side of her due date as I really don't want to go overdue. I've had the bags half packed for a few weeks now but I went through and made sure i've got everything I think i'm going to need. 

I'm just going to list the items i've packed for bubba and I will do a separate blog post about the items i've packed for myself. 

My bag is a Cath Kidston bag, it's actually a changing bag. I got it from the Bicester Village outlet a few weeks ago, they no longer have this print online but here it is in a different pattern if you want to check it out. It's a lovely dark pink/berry colour and has a very pretty floral design. Inside you get two pouches one is actually a thermal pouch for food/ bottles and the other is for your nappies/wipes etc, you also get a portable changing mat which is handy. The bag is a nice size not too big and bulky but plenty of room for all the bits you need for bubba. 

Now onto the items i've packed inside the bag: 

Snowsuit - for the journey home
4 sleepsuits ( range of sizes 3x first size 1x newborn) 
4 vests ( 2x newborn 2x first size) 
2 hats ( 1x wool 1x jersey)
Scratchmits- Just incase we need them, however most of the sleepsuits have them built in
2x muslin squares 
comforter / toy 
nappies (i've packed about 12) 
wipes - I know you are not meant to use wipes on newborns but our midwife recommended them for that first poo as sometimes cotton wool just isn't enough. Also they are handy for any spillages etc
Cotton Wool
Nappy Bags
Blankets - Bubba is due Nov 4th so I expect it to be quite chilly. I've got 3 blankets ready by my hospital bags and will see what one is most suitable on the actual day depending on the weather. We can always bring them all and just leave them in the car so we have them for the trip home. 

I plan on breast feeding so I haven't packed any bottles or milk for this reason. Obviously if you plan on bottle feeding you would need to pack some form of milk. You can buy little ready-made starter packs that they recommend using for the hospital. 

I haven't packed any dummies as I don't plan on using them however we do have a few so I might just chuck one in - just incase. 

Can you think of anything i've missed? What products did you pack for baby? 


It finally feels like Autumn!! We went for a lovely stroll (check out my outfit pictures here)  in the park and picked conkers the other day and then came home and carved pumpkins. We've done it abit early this year as bubba is due early November but I feel like she might make an early entrance and I didn't wanna miss out carving my pumpkins. I did this spooky face, it was meant to be a cat but it just looks like a creepy face and Clint did a Wolf from Game of Thrones which I think looks really good. 

We love watching scary films, with a blanket over us and lots of sweets and snacks to enjoy? How do you get ready for Halloween?  

Homesense have got LOADS!! of really cool Halloween decorations and home bits so if your having a Halloween party or even just want a few decorations for your house you need to head down to Homesense. 

They also have a gorgeous selection of autumnal interiors and furnishings. I saw lots of beautiful throws and blankets in really lovely oranges and yellows. Also if you love a good candle then they have such a huge selection of autumn scents to choose from. I just picked up this little Cinnamon Orange candle jar as it was about £2 and smelled so good! I've got lots of candles so i'm trying to resist buying any new ones.  

The 'Trick' 'Treat' banner was also from Homesense they had a few different designs and they are really affordable. I think this one was about £4 and I think they look fab! You could save them and use them year after year too! 

I also got the Trick or Treat plaque from Homesense, it actually lights up and was only £4.99 and is a really nice little decoration that isn't too in your face. Again you can get this out year after year. They have so many bits and pieces to choose from. They have a gorgeous selection of ceramic pumpkins and some really creepy looking snow globes with ghosts and skeletons inside. 

How cute is this little Halloween mug, I couldn't leave it behind and I will use it for big hot chocolates with lots of cream and marshmellows! I went for the cat one as I'm a big cat person but they had lots of really nice designs to pick from. 

I think thats everything I got from Homesense this year, head down and check out their Halloween selection for this year as it's very impressive and they have so much to choose from, if you are having a party they have lots of different things and it's really affordable and unique so would really recommend checking them out. 

Our house is all ready for Halloween now i've also got out my little pumpkin and my skeleton bowl from last year and we've carved our pumpkins so we can just get the scary films out now and wait for this baby to make an appearance. 

I actually got the cute little pumpkin marshmellows from Homesense too, they were just too cute!!

* Homesense kindly sent me a voucher to go and pick out a few bits from their Halloween range. I have not been paid for this blog post and the post is honest and my own opinions.
