Autumn favourites

With Winter fast approaching, I thought I’d just do a quick post about some of the “things” I’ve been loving this season!

I’d like to start by saying that work and home life is going to be crazy busy over the next three weeks whilst I do my training and settle in, and with hubby away, so I am going to try my absolute best to keep up with my blog but forgive me if I fall off the radar a little.

I have had so much fun in the last 2 months just doing things that I love doing. It was definitely much needed and long overdue following the last 3 years of work, work and more work.

 

PRODUCTS

bed head(allbeauty.com)

The first product I’ve been loving this season is Bed Head Colour Goddess Shampoo & Conditioner. These hair products smell so good you could just eat them (however it is not recommended!). They are large bottles and last such a long time…even for someone like me who ALWAYS has to double shampoo and use loads of conditioner because my hair is so thick! I bought my first set from Amazon and together they cost me Β£18 with postage, but I have since discovered them in B&M for Β£6.99 each. Yaasss!!iconic3

The second product is the Makeup Revolution Redemption palette Iconic 3. These are such gorgeous colours, nude and fab for an everyday look. It is my go to palette at the moment I absolutely love it!

 

TREATS

costa(costacoffee.com)

I am a major coffee person, and a Costa addict! My standard order has recently become the Soya latte with sugar free caramel syrup. I have started ordering soya milk in my coffees as I’m trying to cut down my dairy intake, and actually I find it so much more tasty. I am at the moment working my way through tasting all of the festive drinks and I plan to do a review once I have tried them all (luckily I have a Costa in the hospital I work in)

pumpkin pie(Pillsbury.com)

If you have not yet tried pumpkin pie, I strongly suggest you give it a whizz next year! I know that it is not readily available here in the UK like it is in countries such as the USA, but there are plenty of recipes available online if you fancy your hand at making it yourself – it’s actually not too difficult, and is totally worth it!!

NATURE

autumn(yours.co.uk)

Autumn is my favourite month to take walks in…the crunchy colourful leaves, bare trees, dewy grass, cold but not freezing, hats and scarves. And the anticipation of Winter being on its way…

sunrise(bhmpics.com)

Watching the Sun rise and the Moon disappear as I drive to work – it’s the most beautiful piece of nature that we are blessed with. Seeing this sight always makes me feel so grateful and positive about the day ahead.

SELF CARE

meditation(yogajournal.com)

Hot yoga & meditation have become a big part of my life. Hot yoga, for anyone who doesn’t know, is yoga in a room with steam heaters – like a sauna. Obviously this means you sweat a lot, but it also helps with the flexibility of your muscles. My classes are 90 minutes long, and WOW! I feel so calm after my classes and sleep loads better than normal. Meditation can feel very strange if you’ve never done it before. You can feel restless, fidgety, and like you just can’t switch off. This is completely normal, but it gets easier the more you do it. After I’ve meditated I am so much more productive, it teaches you to be mindful and present with yourself and this allows to zone in on the present moment rather than think about absolutely everything! If anybody wants to try meditation, there are lots of apps you can download to get you started. The one I use is “Headspace” and you can do a free 10 day trial with this of daily 3-4 minute meditations. I strongly recommend it for anybody who suffers with anxiety, panic attacks, depression etc.

So that’s it! That’s the things I’ve been loving this Autumn. If you liked this post, please leave me a comment to let me know. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and have a good Tuesday!
