From trying and buying so many different designer Lipsticks & shades I think I can finally say I have found my perfect 3 that I know I can rely on.
Chanel Rouge Coco 454 Jean
I saw Suzie from Hello October wear this lipstick quite a few months ago and absolutely fell in love with it. If you like your plum shades you're going to be in heaven, Now this one is indisputably a plum. Purple almost in the tube, but don't let that put you off! Whats brilliant about this lipstick is that when you apply, it comes across really shear and natural looking. You can leave it like that if you would prefer, but you can also really build up the colour if you're fancying something a little bit more bold. It is also ridiculously moisturising which is a massive plus for the colder months.
Ted Backer Rose Red
I got this 'lipgloss' okay, it's a lipgloss but it sets just like a lipstick would do so I'm going to put it under the category of a lipstick. The gorgeous bright red 'lipgloss' came in a Ted Baker christmas gift set last year and haven't stopped using it since (I'm sure they still sell the set, or even on its own). It applies really glossy and drys matte so you won't have to worry about it slipping and sliding around, you would think because it drys matte it would be really drying on your lips but surprisingly it doesn't do that at all.
Mac Lipstick Satin Rebel
You can never go wrong with any of the Mac lipsticks. I have only been able to get my hands on some of them (but don't worry I am putting some I have had my eye on, on my christmas list this year), But so far I would say Rebel is my favourite lipstick from Mac, It kind of has the same under colours as the Chanel Lipstick I was talking about first but is much more darker and much more pigmented. Whats also great is that it is satin based so it beautifully glides onto the lips making it feel really comfortable to wear which I love because some dark lipsticks are really difficult to wear because of how drying they are, but you don't have to worry about that with this Lipstick.
I hope I've given you some inspiration to head down to the shops and pick up some new lipsticks.

I think my favourite thing to do around this time of year is to put on some big boots, a long warm coat and a snazzy hat and go walking through the forest. I find it so relaxing and calming, I would do it every day If I could.
I put this outfit together, I will link below details If anyone is interested.
I think it's really important to take an hour of your week to turn of your phone, wrap up warm and go for a walk where ever that may be. It can really help to unwind your brain from your crazy busy week. I think I love it as much as Bella (my dog).

This summer I am flying away to Turkey with my boyfriend and I have told myself I'm going to work really hard to get a natural tan, not something that is out of a bottle. So to enhance 'hopefully' my tan I really wanted a nail polish colour that would do so.
For the past few weeks I have been looking online at all different types of brands, colours and suggestions. I came across Models Own, I've never had any polishes from their brand before but have heard so many good reviews about how good quality they are.
I went into my local Models Own shop and asked one of the girls for help, the second I told them what sort of nail polish I wanted they instantly knew which one I needed and that was the colour in Beach Bag (says it in the name) which is a gorgeous bright neon shade which I had to have.
When I got home and applied it to my nails I loved it, I loved how smoothly it applied and pigmented it was. It already made my skin look darker than what It actually was so I can't imagine what It will look like after my holiday.
Thank goodness for Models Own.
