MY AUTUMN BUCKET LIST.


Over the past couple of years Autumn seems to have become this massive almost over hyped moment and along with it being also 70% of everyone's favourite season it can be overwhelming at times. There is so much to do before the winter draws in cold and we all get in the Christmas spirit, but Autumn, it's a whole other ball game. Pumpkin spiced lattes, scarfs, big coats, gloves and boots we're ready for ya. So this year, after a right nosey on Instagram for too long I've come up with a list of everything I want to do this Autumn, and what I think you might enjoy too.

MAMA MEET PROJECT SUMMER SWAP.


Over the course of the last two years I joined in a project called the Mama Meet Project. It's all about meeting up with other mums in your local areas, talking to mums online to build confidence that can be knocked in the 4th trimester (and before), and making a friend or two. Over the course of the past year the founder Louise created special swap events where you can exchange gifts with other mama's in an almost secret santa sort of way. Through trials and tribulations, I wanted to share with you what I received from a very lovely mama and why I don't think I will be doing it ever again.

SOAP & GLORY SKIN-SMOOTHING PORE-REFINING SHEET MASK REVIEW


Over the past few years Soap & Glory have made a huge name for themselves and you can almost guarantee that every year every female in your life will receive one of their gift sets for Christmas. However I always find that the brand slips my radar when they come out with new products and I tend to skip the stand in Boots. I noticed one particular day the Soap & Glory Skin-Smoothing Pore-Refining Mask and I needed it.

LUSH TRAFFORD CENTRE RE-OPENING AND MINI HAUL FT. JELLY BOMBS


Recently I visited the new LUSH store opening in Trafford Centre and wanted to take a nosey at some of the new launches as well as the new store itself. The old store itself wasn't my favourite but I was hoping the new location within the centre would be bigger and better and I wasn't dissapointed. Toddler in tow, I took a dive into the store and hoped for the best that we could see everything with a pram trailing alongside. After a couple of glimpses on the #LUSH tags online I was excited.

OUR ACCIDENTAL CO-SLEEPING JOURNEY.


Over the course of the past almost 16 months we have encountered a lot of problems when it comes to my daughters sleeping habits. She was an amazing sleeper, then a leap appeared. Then it got worse, then she was amazing again, then came when she started slipping into our bed. And that's when it started, and now we're stuck with co-sleeping whether we want to or not. I was so adamant about not co-sleeping because I heard so many crazy things and not so crazy stories about everything going wrong and I was frightened at night. So here is our journey so far.

PAPERGANG AUGUST SUBSCRIPTION REVIEW: GEMMA CORRELL EDITION.


It's no secret that I'm a huge junkie for stationery, illustrations and all things artistic so after I recieved my first Papergang by Ohh Deer subscription which you can read here, I saw that Gemma Correll was the artist. I was beyond excited. I've always been a huge fan of her work and I think her and Veronica Dearly are well ahead of the game at the moment. So all I really needed to know is, was the subscription worth it after my previous let down?

DOES IT LIVE UP TO THE HYPE? AN URBAN DECAY NAKED HEAT PALETTE REVIEW.

urban decay naked heat review

Over the past couple of months we've seen a tide wave of what is the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. How can you escape the internet without seeing and hearing all about it. Unless you're one of the lucky few that managed to get the first batch, or the bloggers that snagged them then you would've noticed they've just launched in our U.K. Stores. Ever dreaming of a warm palette with the perfect orange and red tones perfect for smoky looks, I thought I'd give it a go and see how amazing this palette really is. And is it what everyone has hyped it up to be?
