The perfect Autumnal nude

So when it comes to lipstick I think my favourite go-to brand is MAC!
Personally I feel like their lipsticks are good value for money and it really feels like a treat when I add a new shade to my lipstick collection.
Recently I was at the airport on a weekend away and of course had to pay a visit to Duty Free, the MAC counter drew me in and before I knew it I had swatches of lipstick all over my hand and arm! I decided to settle with a shade from the Satin range called 'Faux'.

'Faux' is a muted dusty mauve pink and I have seen it described as a lighter version of 'Velvet Teddy' another of MAC's popular shades. It is a very easy to wear shade and I'd also describe the shad as a 'your lips but better' colour too.
I decided to wear it for a night out last night with my friends, as I had applied a smokey eye with glitter eyeliner and false lashes so wanted something less bold for my lips and I think the makeup look went well together...

I love this lip colour as it is so wearable, day or evening it can look great! It is the perfect Autumn nude as its slightly darker than your regular nude lipstick. It wore really well and didn't dry my lips at all, I would definitely recommend this MAC lipstick.

What are your favourite lipstick shades for this time of year?
Any recommendations or any dupes?

Autumn Walks & OOTD

So as we all know - Autumn is in full swing now and I must say it is my favourite season! I love that the weather is colder and we can wear boots, woolen scarves, knit wear and of course layer our favourite piece of clothes! On Sunday My boyfriend and my Mum & Dad decided to go for a walk around our local country park and it was lovely.

What then followed were a series of photos (only taken on my phone so please excuse the quality) of our walk, including my Outfit of the day of course! I wore some new purchases including a Gilet & rust coloured roll neck jumper (From New Look) my trusted pair of black Leigh jeans (Topshop), black UGG boots (it is definitely time to get those out) and a silk scarf from River Island to just tie all the colours together.
Here are a few photos of our walk,

Came across this little wooden tee-pee! How cool         

 Just a close up of the scarf I was wearing - love all the colours in it!
 It literally goes with so many outfits.

 Love the colours of the leaves this time of year

Love this shot! If a little eerie.

(When you have no where to put your bag so you use a tree! in the background haha)

We had such a nice day, and I really do urge all of you to go and find your local country park as this time of year the trees are such a beautiful colour, and it is so nice to get out and get some fresh air - and a perfect excuse for a yummy Hot Chocolate after to warm yourself up!

Hope you enjoyed my first proper post in 10 months!!! I've made a promise to myself to make sure I post once a week - as I really do love writing and taking photos.

Lots of Love

Getting back on the Blogging scene

Hi Guys!

Where to has been 10 months since I last posted anything on my blog! Mainly because I feel like my life has been so busy in the past year, I've had a change in my job role at work and more importantly my boyfriend and I have bought our first home together!!! (Still so exciting) And somewhere along the way I just couldn't find time to commit to my blog,

However I feel that I am much more settled now in my new home (will have to do some home wear posts soon eeek) So I want to really get back on the blogging scene - for me blogging is just a hobby and something to do in my spare time but I have a passion for it, my friends and family were saying they missed my blog posts (and if only for their enjoyment) I am going to try to get back into it!

Being realistic I am probably only going to manage 1 or 2 posts a week as working Full Time means that I'll only tend to my blog at the weekends (and some weeknight evenings) but as long as I have people telling me they enjoyed reading my blog then I will carry on! Another reason I miss blogging was the feeling of achievement when I posted something I took care and spent time over - I want to get back that feeling of confidence and pride with all my blog posts and even though it doesn't have many readers and followers I still write it all myself and take all the photos myself and I want to share it with as many people as possible.

Also I love the blogging community and I feel that with apps like Instagram and Snapchat you can share and express so much and it really feels like a little family - So with that in mind please follow my Instagram @emilyldn & Snapchat: emilyldn

I'd love to read some comments from blog writers who also just blog as a hobby and work full time in a completely different field - how do you juggle both? And do you have any tips?

I'm lookin forward to being back :) and sharing my posts with you.... But please remember this :

'Success is not the key to Happiness. 
Happiness is the key to Success. 
If you love what you're doing, you will be Successful' 

Much Love,
