Now that we're smack bang in the middle of Autumn and Halloween is almost upon us, I thought I'd share with you a selection of A/W boots that I recently picked up from EGO Shoes. Hoping to find a pair to go with my fancy dress costume this year, I browsed their Halloween collection and fell in love with, not one, but three styles. No matter which I finally decide on for the party, they're all so wearable and will continue to see me through the rest of the A/W seasons.
A/W is always the best time for beauty, in my opinion, as the trends are right up my street and there's always an abundance of limited-edition collections to swoon over. Lately, there's been so many amazing, new releases that I've barely been able to keep up, so I've put together a little list of what I'm currently lusting after.
Hair Xpertise is a brand that never seems to get much coverage in the beauty world, but their haircare range is so impressive that they deserve some recognition. I've dabbled with a few of their products before - their Kera 10 Treatment is one of my favourite leave-in conditioners and their Argan Oil Treatment leaves hair so sleek that I'm always complimented on my tresses whenever I use it. Most recently, I've been trying out the new Hair Xpertise Argan Renew Shampoo and Conditioner*, which are aimed at strengthing and protecting the hair, using an anti-aging blend of ingredients.
The craze for MAC makeup has definitely died down a lot, as of late. Rewind a few years and I'm sure you were just as obsessed as me, desperate to snap up every shade of lipstick and eyeshadow or entire limited-edition collections as soon as they launched. Whilst I still adore the iconic brand, the urge to open a pop-up shop in my bedroom isn't quite as strong as it used to be and I've significantly downsized my collection. That doesn't mean I'm not tempted by some treats every once in a while, though; I just tend to restrain myself and avoid any purchases that I know I'll regret. Viva Glam Gaga ring any bells? My recent MAC marathon was solely focused on new eyeshadow pans to spice up my much-loved, but same-y, palettes, after having them for so long. Surprise, surprise - I plumped for four, neutral shades, all of which are permanent.
