Autumn Wishlist
Autumn is upon us: the mornings are getting colder, the evenings are getting darker and Christmas decorations are already in the shops. This year is completely flying by - soon it will be New Years and we'll be welcoming in 2015. But enough of that.

As it's a new season, I've compiled a wishlist together of autumnal themed beauty and fashion bits and bobs that I'm currently lusting after. I'm getting a tax rebate this month so I may actually be able to afford a few of these!

1) Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt
Bloggers' fave and the latest Jo Malone fragrance smells absolutely amazing. It reminds me of windy days spent near the seaside, with an ice cream and a big, cosy cardigan. It's the perfect scent for Autumn. I've never bought anything from Jo Malone before so this will be my first purchase (once I get around to buying it!)

2) Cable Faux Fur Pom Beanie from Topshop
I love the colour of this hat; greens and reds are the perfect colours for Autumn. I tried this on in my local store and I really liked it. There's also a burgundy one available so I might just buy them both!

3) Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Red Carpet Red
You may start to notice a trend here with the amount of reds and burgundy colours, but I just think they completely encompass Autumn fashion. Charlotte Tilbury has recently brought out a range of matte lipsticks; however they aren't cheap at £23 a pop. They have been raved about across the blogosphere and I've got this red shade on my mind - it's just beauuutiful.

4) Dark Red Floral Print Slim Cigarette Pants from River Island
I spotted these in the Westfield store and I loved the pattern. River Island have brought out a lot of these cigarette pants with different prints. I like the slim fit because I own other trousers like these that are a bit too loose and they look a bit like PJ bottoms.

5) Barry M Gelly Nail Effect in Mustard
Barry M have added a new range of Autumn colours to their successful Gelly range, and I'm kinda loving this Mustard shade. It's a very hit or miss colour, you're either going to love it or hate it. I usually hate yellow tones like this but there's something about it that caught my eye. It's a bit different and I think it will turn a few heads (not sure whether that's good or bad quite yet).

6) Rib Crop Top from Topshop
Crop tops, such as this one, are getting increasingly popular, which is quite surprising considering the weather is getting colder. I used to veer away from crop tops because my mum always said I'd catch a cold in my kidneys but I'm buying more and more at the moment. I can't wait to snap this up in loads of colours and pair them with my high waisted Topshop Joni jeans.

7) H&M Handbag
I saw Tanya Burr talk about this bag in her latest haul video and I need it in my life. I want the black one, I want the grey one and I want this burgundy one. It's such a sophisticated looking bag, and you would think it's from somewhere like Zara rather than H&M. Bonus points for the burgundy colour.

What's on your Autumn wishlist? Let me know in the comments!


  1. My nan always say 'you'll get a cold in your kidneys!' too! I love the Topshop crop top. I need to get some patterned cigarette pants, I'm just not sure which pattern will suit me.


  2. OK I was going to pick my favourites and I just can't as I love every single piece and now I am left LUSTING after it all :( xxx
