Hello! Today I’d like to talk about some of the things I’ve been loving so far this autumn. It’s been a long tine since I last wrote here, so I’m going to use this post to sort-of bring you up to speed with some of the things I’ve been up to lately as well.
Autumn so far has been both uneventful and eventful. I mean, nothing much exciting has really happened – although I have celebrated a few friends birthdays, gone on a few shopping trips and visited my favourite art gallery – but otherwise I’ve pretty much been studying constantly. Year 13 has certainly been more intense than I was expecting, the workload is so impossibly huge that I barely have time to work on the two pieces of independent coursework and my university personal statement that need to be done by Januray, let alone blogging! On top of all that, I was suffering with a nasty cold for two weeks, and last week my phone broke so it’s been shipped off to France
where I’ll probably never see it again.. for repairs, and whilst I’m writing this, our wifi at home haa gone down so who know’s when I’ll get to publish it!
Anyway, that’s enough rambling for now and I should really start to write about my autumn favourites, which I’m excited to share with you! Autumn is my favourite season, and I’m loving it even more than usual this year, which is great!
I’ve been really getting into fashion this autumn. I may not be the most fashionable person, but I really enjoy putting autumnal outfits together, especially featuring this top and skirt that I bought recently (in the sales of course!) (Sorry for the bad photography)
This is a bit strange, but I’ve been drinking lemon squash a lot recently, and I really love the taste! Although citrus fruits are more summery, my dad bought some lemon squash when we both had colds in a bid to help our sore throats, and I’ve carried on drinking it since – it’s so refreshing.
Yep, you heard correctly. The girl who was saying just a few months ago how much she had fallen out of love with geography has included it on a favourites list…Basically, we’re studying global superpowers at the moment, and it’s so interesting from a political and historical perspective, and something I want to explore more when I study politics at uni next year. I’m so glad I’ve fallen back in love it, because gsography is so demanding and if you’re lacking enthusiasm, it can be a real uphill battle. The coursework is another question, but so far I’m loving the lessons enough to spend time making pretty notes!
(N.B. this was written before I had the end of topic test on Tuesday which was HORRIBLE)
Of course candles are an autumn essential, but in particular I have been using an apple and cinamon candle (which I conveniently forgot to photograph) a lot that my friend got me for Christmas last year. It’s not a yankee candle, but the scent is so powerful and warming.
I bought the Make-Up Revolution New-trals vs Neutrals pallet in August because I loved the pink and orange shades in it, and have never had a proper eyeshadow pallet so I decided to treat myself. I’ve been using it so much over the autumn, as it has some really deep bergundys and oranges that give off an autumn vibe. Although I have nothing really to compare this pallet too, I am very impressed with it as to me the colours seem very pigmented and apply well, and there is a great range of matte and shimmer-y shades. 10/10 would recommend.
Ahh! The series finale was on Sunday, but I definitely loved this series a whole lot more than last series. I got so attatched to some of the characters, and to keep this spoiler-free, let’s just say the plot took some interesting turns!
Absolute 80s radio
Music-wise, there haven’t been any particular artists that I’ve really been into, I guess other than HAIM who I listened to a lot last month. That’s because I’ve rediscovered my love of 80s music, so spend most of my music-listening time tuning into Absolute 80s or playing some of my parents records.
Well, I think that’s all I can think of for now, which is good because this post is alreasy quite long. I’ve got plenty of ideas for upcoming posts so hopefully over half term next week I’ll more time to write them. Goodbye for now!
