Keeping Cosy This Autumn/ Winter Season

I love this time of year there is nothing I like more that getting all snuggly and cosy and relaxing in front of the tele under a blanket or getting in to bed with a good book and just keeping warm. There was something about my previous house that meant that I just couldn't get cosy in there I don’t know what it was but already I love my new little house it just feels perfect for this time of the year and all of the visitors I have had so far have mentioned how cosy my house feels, Maybe it is because the rooms are a little smaller more snug.

I wanted to share with you some of the little touches I have been adding to my new home to make it feel a little more cosy 


I also love cushions and blankets for making a room look more cosy and comfy. They are also fab for layering.
 

I haven't had a bed with a head frame for so long, well ever really so I am so happy I finally have this bed. I love the flower fairy lights I have hung from it.
 




As you can see I love candles at this time of year they are my number one must have if you are wanting to make your home looks more cosy.
 

 I am absolutely in love with my new bedroom it feels so relaxing when I sit in there it is a perfect place to chill when I have had a long day. I just want to put a few more pictures up in the room and then it will be perfect.


A little moving in present to myself was these little candle houses they were only £12 from Asda and I love them. I uploaded a photo to Instagram and facebook and I got so many compliments on them and I know a couple of people have actually gone out and bought them.

Essence LongLasting Lipstick in Love Me

I had seen various Essence products floating around the blogging world but until recently I don't think they had been readily available in the UK until they have recently started being stocked in Wilkos stores. I thought I would pick up a couple of products to see what they are like. Essence is a budget friendly brand and had very affordable products which look quite good quality.


I bought one of their lipsticks in the shade Love Me it is a beautiful dusky rosy pink shade. For £2.50 the quality is brilliant it is very highly pigmented, I know sometimes when you buy a cheaper lipstick the colour pay off isn't always great



It has a creamy and moisturising finish I thought it might be quite drying on your lips with it being a cheaper lipstick but it is really quite creamy and it feels like a much more expensive lipstick. I just love the colour it is perfect for me a beautiful everyday pink and as you know if you have been reading my blog for a while I don't like bright lip colours. I will definitely be buying more lipsticks from the range the next time I am in Wilkos.

#ClarksMoments Maxi Hehe Fst Boots*

As I have mentioned before we love Clarks shoes and as you may have seen Thomas was lucky enough to get a new pair of boots ready for the Autumn/ Winter to keep his tootsies nice and toasty. I picked these lovely boots as I loved the colour they look perfect for this time of year. I love the pop of mustard yellow with the brown it makes the boots more fun for toddlers.

The boots are also surprisingly easy to get on even on a toddlers uncooperative feet as they have little zips down the side meaning you can open them up quite wide and your toddler can easily push their foot in and there is a little toggle at the back you can pull them on with ease. The leather is also soft and flexible making them super comfortable for your toddler no need to worry about them rubbing and they can still move easily with them on as you don't want their movements to be restricted.


Thomas loves his new boots.

My Little Parisienne Box Review






It's seems there is a new monthly subscription box which has been doing the rounds among blogs over the past weeks and it looked so cute that I just couldn't not try it. So of course straight away I signed up eager to try it out for myself.

I was still in time to receive the September box so after a week or so wait I received my box and eagerly unwrapped it. It feels a little bit nicer than your average beauty box, a little more chic.
The concept is simple each month My little box will send you must have beauty items including one item from their in house beauty products, fashion and lifestyle accessories, a copy of my little world magazine and illustrated goodies from Kanako which I think it such a cute little touch which helps to make the box so cute.



Like your normal subscription box it was packaged up with a little bow and arranged carefully in the box. I have already found a frame for the Paris illustration which will be put up in my new bedroom when I finally move.


This month I received a sweet little laptop/notebook sleeve which unfortunately my big clunky laptop doesn't fit in but hopefully sometime soon I may have a Macbook which I have heard fits perfectly inside. Some cutesie little stickers and a little notebook which I am sure will come in useful.





The beauty products in this months box were a Laura Mercier Foundation Primer which I have received before in a beauty box but this will come in useful and everybody loves a Laura Mercier product.
Next was Stylo Lumiere which is a high lighting product from their in house beauty range which I was curious to see if it would be any good.
Lastly was Nuxe dry oil now which I am currently trialing out as I don't have much experience with dry oils.

I'm looking forward to seeing Octobers box has to offer hopefully it will be just as good if not better.
