autumn/winter essentials

The seasons have changed. Which means that I will be gathering together my essentials for this chilly season. Here is a look at some of them:

A Snood/ Scarf: I love buying a big snood every year. I realise they are a love/hate item but I really like wearing them. I got this New Look checkered snood (as seen above) for around €9 and I'm excited to start wearing it winter long. It is in my favourite colours navy and red (a recurring colour theme in this post). I also want to keep an eye out for a red plaid print scarf, any suggestions?

Boots: Also from New Look, I got these boots that I love. Gold detailed boots are everywhere this autumn/winter season and I love this trend. They were quiet pricey at €90 but you can get similar items for a little less. These boots also have a small heel making them a more sophisticated boot but are still comfortable to walk in.

An Autumnal Lipstick: My make-up is pretty simple all year round but coming into autumn I like to bring out the darker lipstick shade. For daytime, I like the Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie, a very wearable berry, sheer colour that offer moisture also, essential for the colder months.
For evening or when I'm feeling brave some days, another inexpensive option, the Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in 07, a classic deep red that got a lot of buzz last year but I still love.

Nail Polish: Navy is my go to cold weather colour and I think these mini Max Factor polishes are great. This is the colour is Cloudy Blue and is a really deep navy with a very subtle blue sparkle. At only €3.50, its a real bargain and looks very sophisticated and less harsh than a black,

A Nice Warm Coffee: I love coming into the cold months having a coffee to make me feel all warm and fuzzy. My coffee of choice is a mocha but a traditional americano does the trick also. Tasty!

Any other products that you think are a must for the changing weather?
