Autumn Favourites

Hi Everyone,
I can't believe it is June already! We didn't really have much of an Autumn in this town. The skies started to get prettier in the afternoons than usual and the sun took longer to come out in the morning, but other than that, it has been pretty summery through most of the season. I would say that the season has been very up and down for me personally. I had some pretty low moments, but I also had a couple of really good moments. I feel like I don't want to jinx anything, but maybe things are getting a lot better.

I had a really awesome time at our local Rock n' roll dance (Sorry there won't be an outfit post this year, but I might do a 50s playlist in honor of the event instead), I became an Aunty (which was really exciting), And, I made a new friend (which is a big deal for me). I hope the weather wherever you are has been kind to you. Here are my seasonal favourites for Autumn:

*

BEAUTY:
-I like both the lip colours from the Colourpop Alchemy range by Jaime King. 'Polite Society' is an awesome pink colour that is not too bright and not too pale. I adore 'JuJu Rouge' which is quite similar to the 90s Grunge collection lippiestix in 'Dazed', but a little brighter.

-I love using the Colourpop Lip pencil in 'Aquarius' as an alternative to nude lip liner.

-I tried out some new brow products and I really like them. I've been using Colourpop Brow Colour in 'Black n' Brown' or Ardell's Brow Pomade in the same shade. 

-I tried out the Nivea Mens Sensitive After Shave Balm as a make-up primer (the one that NikkieTutorials on Youtube raves about) and it is actually pretty decent.

-I have been loving Loreal Elnett hair spray (the volume one) for fixing my hair into place. I'm trying to grow it a little bit ,so its in a weird phase that requires a few miniature bobby pins and strong hair spray.

STYLE:
-I have been loving my Cotton On Shoes. If you are in Australia and you are looking for some affordable and vintage appropriate flats, Cotton On has an awesome range.

-I recently bought a pair of Metal Sunglasses (Kind of like Aviators, but with the horn rim on the top) and I'm obsessed with them. 

-I feel like I've been taking more risks with my wardrobe, by buying things that are a little more fitted and wearing things I have never worn before.

MUSIC:
- 'One' by Johnny Cash (U2 Cover)
- 'Life Fades Away' by Roy Orbison 
- 'Power' by Kanye West
- 'I Wanna Be Your Man' by Sarah Blasko
- 'Empty' by Garbage

MOVIES:
-Inventing the Abbots
-Beastly
-The Wedding Singer

OTHER:
-I have been trying different wines out and I think McWilliams Fruitwood Red is a favourite. It is cheap, it is not too dry and not too sweet.

Super fun post! That is such a cool trick about using after shave balm as a make-up primer. Who knew! It's awesome when products have hidden alternative uses like that (one of my faves in that regard is using deodorant, especially white chalky ones, as a soothing agent for bug bites and stings).

I hope that you have a terrific season, sweet dear, complete with lots of sunny, mellow fall days of the sort make anyone want to wax poetically over their beauty.

Tons of hugs,
♥ Jessica
