Colours of Autumn Part II

Hi Ladies!

I thought I would continue with the theme of Autumn colours as there are so many lovely products out in the shops at the mo!

I am going to keep this post light on the words and heavy on the photos :)

Some of the products I am loving include various plum nail polishes and lipsticks, warm perfumes and nude tones eyeshadows...enjoy:

From L-R there is:

Dior eyeshadow trio in 571 smokey nude, the perfect eyeshadow quad to go with bold lips.

Nails Inc Savile Row

Essie Bahama Mama, currently on my toes!

Revlon 340 Stunning, great for an accent nail.

Gucci Premiere (EDP), a recent present. I am usually a Chanel and Jo Malone girl when it comes to scents, but this is a great woody floral scent which looks fab on the dressing table :)

Rimmel 330 Sloane's Plum Moisture Renew Lipstick. As many of you requested, a cheaper alternative to the YSL lip stain I posted. This is a very wearable plum colour with fab colour payoff!

Enjoy the swatches/close-ups!

Louis Vuitton Trevi PM and Tapage Bag Charm

I got very spoilt last month as my Hubbie treated to me to a LV Trevi PM in Damier Ebene and a LV Tapage Bag Charm!

I have wanted a LV handbag for a while now and was very happy to go into the LV shop at Westfield and walk out with one. Their customer service was exceptional!

I wasn't sure whether to buy this bag or not due to having a wee toddler but after trying it on in the shop, I knew it would be perfect. It has both a shoulder strap and top handles which fold down, so it can be used for Mummy time during the day, and if you whip the shoulder strap off it is very chic bag used for going out to dinner etc. A great all rounder.

It is also pretty roomy, I manage to fit all the essentials in there and have some room left over :)

I couldn't resist blinging my bag up with the Tapage bag charm! It is gorgeous! I have had loads of compliments on this. I think bag charms are great as you can obviously use them on different bags thereby changing their look very easily.

Here are some eye candy photos:

The charm!

A final one:

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday ladies!

Colours of Autumn

Hi Ladies!

I am back! Apologies for my extended absence. I have missed blogging and reading your comments!

I could not have come back at a better time than at the beginning of my favourite season, Autumn. I love the warm rich colours you see everywhere from a walk in the park to the clothes in the shops.

I have been reading the much awaited September issues of the magazines and have been very happy to see the trend for berry colours in make up, this is right up my street :)

I love all hues of berry colours especially dark pinks and purples and have alot of these shades in my make up bag/closet already.

However, I could not resist a couple of new purchases as I wandered around the shops last week. I picked up a beautiful Essie nail polish and a lip gloss from YSL.

The Essie Nail Polish (with flash):

It is called Angora Cardie (love the name!):
I also bought my first YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levre in number 4. YSL advertise this as a glossy stain and it is exactly that! It is a stunning plum colour perfect to see you through the colder months. It goes on to your lips very wet and runny but sets immediately leaving a beautiful glossy stain. Another bonus is that it has great staying power! With flash:

A couple of swatch of the nail varnish and glossy stain:
As you can see from the swatches, they make a great duo for the lips and nails! xoxo
