Now that I'm back at University, I still work part-time and I also aim to get blog posts up every other day you can imagine that my week gets pretty busy. To be honest, I do love being busy, especially when it comes to blogging since I love being creative with writing down my little thoughts and taking photos so I don't mind TOO much! Even so, often at times it does feel like I don't really get much time off, but obviously I do make sure to have some me-time every now and again just to relax and refresh! Sundays have pretty much become my one day off where I give myself that time to de-stress and and put my to-do list aside - and I definitely make sure that I don't need to leave the house unless absolutely necessary... (this means I don't have to leave my pyjamas or my bed, haha!) So today I decided to share my typical Sunday with you guys and just share some of the things that I enjoy doing on a typical day off!

So, as you guys may or may not know, I moved house last September - if you missed it you can read all about that here if you like. Obviously, the best part about moving house is getting to decorate and go shopping for all the homeware and knick knacks and when we lived in the flat we never really decorated the place properly, so moving into this house was like a completely fresh start...So you can imagine the excitement I felt when it was time to go shopping for all the homely bits! Also, I was very lucky that it was just coming up to Autumn when I went shopping for these bits so a lot of my decorations at the moment are very Autumnal and seasonal! My first port of call was obviously Home Sense (aka: the mothership..lol!) so a lot of the bits I picked up are from there but also we stopped in Asda because they actually have some really lovely bits in there too! So yeah, here are a few of the homeware pieces I've bought recently, I obviously haven't taken pictures of everything because that would've just taken bloody ages, but I've tried to add a link to something that's at least similar if you're interested in seeing what the bits actually look like!

The transition from Summer into Autumn is probably my favourite time of year, not only the transition in weather (because let's face it, we're all bored of the heat by mid August.. even if we don't get much sun here in the UK!) or the transition in clothing from pastels and strappy tops to burgundys and oranges and oversized jumpers. Mainly I love the transition in makeup! I must admit, now that I have to wake up at 5:15am for work I really can't ever be bothered to do my makeup and I've barely worn any for the last couple of months, but trust me since the weather has been getting colder and we've been getting further into Autumn I haven't been able to stay away from my Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette! I feel like Autumn is the best time to experiment with different makeup trends and get a little bit out of your comfort zone, whether you want to try out a more dark, vampy look or go for a bolder lip colour - you can't really go wrong! So I recently realised that I've never really shared my every day makeup routine with you lot, and since my Autumn makeup routine is a just slightly more interesting than every other time of year, I thought now would be the best time to finally write this post! (I also haven't written a makeup post in bloody ages, so it's about time!) Also, let me know what makeup you are wearing this Autumn down in the comments, I definitely need an excuse to go out and buy new makeup, haha!

I am in no way a fashion blogger... in fact, when it comes to clothes most of the time I just chuck whatever on and hope for the best! I really am pretty lazy with fashion most of the time and I tend to wear the same staple items for each season of the year, but I feel like Autumn is definitely my best season for buying and wearing loads of new and different clothes and also for getting out of my comfort zone a little bit - especially when it comes to colours, since I tend to go for black, whites and greys most of the year, haha! There are obviously so many clothing essentials when it comes to Autumn, from boots to scarves to oversized jumpers and I wanted to share some of my favourite pieces that I think are vital for this time of year! Let me know if you agree with my picks for this season and also tell me if I missed anything from my list that you love wearing this time of year, I'd love to know!

You're probably all bored of hearing this but clearly I can't say it enough... Autumn is my favourite season! And although in my own little world Autumn has been upon us for at least a month already, now that the shops are all stocking pumpkins and even Christmas bits I feel like I can properly unleash the true excitement I have about Autumn.. haha! So yes I am for sure getting out the fluffy socks, sticking on a bit of Hocus Pocus and getting cosy with my pumpkin scented candles! Now, during Autumn there are a number of essentials that are absolutely necessary to live the season to the fullest, to feel the most festive and the most Autumnal! I've decided to write this little post just to let you guys know what a few of my Autumn essentials are this year! Let me know if you agree with any of the things on my list and also comment if I've missed anything out that you definitely need to have the best Autumn, haha!
