Autumn Leaves- Season in a Nutshell...

By Lucy Harbron - 13:01

Autumn

So i know winter officially begins on the 21st December, but i worry that the world may end then so i decided to do my autumn review now, yay!

Autumn is by far my favourite season, just think about it for a second; its not to hot, not freezing, you get to bring out your warm jumpers, coats and boots and you get those moments when there is dew drops of spider webs. Everything just kind of reveals its beauty in autumn!

Beauty
 I think this season I've tried a lot more different things; experimenting with lip colours (in particular no.7 moisture drench sugar plum, lush!), eyeliner, nails. I've bought a lot more products that i wouldn't normally and learnt to apply eyeliner successful (yay!)
          Nails- Nail art has taken over my life, little bows, little cats, little owls, flowers, dots, just about everything has been on my nails! I've built up a VAST collection of nail polishes and pens, and been a lot more adventurous with colours and now metallic. I think I've fallen in love.
         School Routine-This season I've definitely perfected my school makeup routine, just enough makeup to cover up, not enough to get told off!But also still kind on skin when added to an intensive makeup removing routine! At some point i will do a tutorial over on my beauty page! Check an eye out for that!




         Hair Styles- Lived in a middle parting, i have been converted.

Fashion
I love autumn fashion; cosy jumpers, Chelsea boots, duffel coats. Just love love love.
         Wardrobe musts- I have so many! Firstly, the classic skinny jeans, always a must but especially in autumn; perfect with over sized, knitted jumpers and cardigans. Secondly, my Marks and Spencers duffle coat and cheap plaid scarf from the men's section of Primark-£3 have kept me so warm going to and from school but also looks so good over a white or red jumper! But my top two musts this season are-knitted jumpers and Chelsea boots!
         Favourite trend-layering has taken over. Whether it be cream jumpers and plaid shirts, red jumpers and white shirts, dress and jumpers...I'm. in. layering. heaven. Not only does it keep you warm, but I've found a way of using summer tops all year round! For example a short-sleeve sheer top from Next which has embroidery on the front and lace lined collars is too cold to wear alone now. But looks amazing underneath my red new look jumper! Tops with collars are my all year round must have.
        Best Buy Red dress from topshop-£35!

Music
so many good artists/songs/albums this season i cant cope! I don't really listen to much chart music (im just too hipsta....bad joke sorry) so go and listen to any artists you haven't heard of!
        Albums- here are my top albums this season-
  • Red-Taylor Swift (obviously)- i just don't have a criticism at all, Songs for every situation, mood, occasion and even a bit of Ed Sheeran!
  • Fools EP- Lauren Aquilina- Young, pure talent.
  • Jake Bugg-Jake Bugg- After hearing lighting bolt on radio 1 i was waiting for this album and it didn't disappoint. So much variety from happy songs to songs that make you want to eat chocolate and cry over your non-existent love life!
  • Like I Used To-Lucy Rose- what can i say, i love Lucy Rose! not just because we share the same name, but her soft vocals just calm you down.  Shiver send actual shivers down my spine and Bikes made me want to go for a run (which i will never do, exercise is just pure evil.)
  • All Our Favourite Stories-Dog Is Dead- this is an extremely rare occasion when my mum introduces me to a GOOD BAND! (congrats mum) Every note, word, strum is perfect from two devils to Glockenspiel Song. pure beauty.
  • The Lumineers-The Lumineers- Songs that make you want to move to Texas, sit by a campfire and shout HO HEY at the top of your lung! a Mumford and sons feel to it, very good!
  • There a lot more but i wont bore you!
         Artists- I always find my self coming back to the same people and bands. Gabrielle Aplin regained my attention with Her Singles Please don't say you love me and new, john Lewis hit the power of love. Her voice is so angelic and pure that i just makes me stop and like "wow." Also Daughter, a band, keep me coming back for more with their bold lyrics that tell hypnotic stories to the soundtrack of gorgeous guitars. Lewis Watson never fails , every song is perfection, just like his face (for the girls, seriously, google him.) MANY MANY MORE, so head over to my music page after this!

Simple Smiles
  • Costa/Starbucks drinks.
  • Crunchy Leaves.
  • Dew covered spider webs.
  • Seeing your own breath.
  • Sitting by the radiator.
  • Scarfs and gloves.

Books
  • Wonder by R.J Palacio- One of those books where it ended and i knew it had changed me. Such a beautiful story about a boy, August, born with a facial abnormality, narrated by all the people whose lives where changed by August.
  • The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway- A classic recommended to me, ad it didn't disappoint. When you get past the "I'm sat reading about a man fishing..." stage, you really start to appreciate it.
At the moment I'm reading To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee for school, so expect a review at some point!

Quotes

"The universe takes care of all it's birds"- Wonder.
"We accept the love we think we deserve"- Perks of Being A Wallflower.
"We are a mess, we are failures and we love it"- Glockenspiel Song- Dog is Dead.
"And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies, the beautiful kind..."-Everything has Changed-Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran.
"He offered her his world, she said she had her own"-Unknown.
"It's that ancient love, That you won't outgrow"- Bombay Bicycle Club - dust on the ground.

Lessons Learnt

Silly little things- Every 15 seconds a Beatles song is played somewhere in the world.

Life lessons- You have to tell people how you feel, otherwise nothing will get better or change.

overall-I've enjoyed Autumn, what about you?

much love
