Autumn/Winter wish list!!!

I was browsing on the internet(don't do it...just don't) and I came across a couple of products that I am incredibly curious about and I would love to try. Some you cannot get outside the U.S. but a girl can still dream can't she??
Most of these items I have been wanting to try for a while and some of them have been recently, added to my wish list. So, I decided to do this post to show you these items just in case you have tried any of them and you'd like to let me know whether they are worth buying or not..!! This is a two-part wish list with a beauty-related and misc list.

What do you think??Let me know...;)

I saw this tag going around on youtube and blogs and I thought..."you know what??I love Autumn as well". So you see...this tag is perfect sooooo let's get started.

1) Favourite Autumn Lip Colour

MAC "What Joy" and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in "Boy"
2) Favourite Autumn Nail Color

OPI "Done out in Deco" and Essie "Bahama Mama" 

3) Favourite Autumn Beverage

Hot coffee (mostly cappuccino and filtered coffee) and tea with milk 

4) Favourite Autumn Candle

I love the IKEA Tindra cream coloured candle with this picture on the packaging/pot/glass container :P 
I also like any apple/cinnamon scented candle. I haven't really found one that I adore yet so please let me know if you have any suggestions.

5) Favourite Autumn Scarf/ Accessory

I love scarves and these two are my two most worn autumn scarves. They are both infinity scarves. One is from River Island(right) and the other from M&S(left). I also have an upcoming post on scarves and how I store them so if you are interested watch out for it. ;)

6) Haunted House, Haunted Hay Ride or Haunted Corn Maze?

I would have to say haunted Hay Ride because it sounds awesome plus I would have to go with other people which would make it that much more fun...

7) Favourite Halloween Movies?

Hands down Tim Burton's "Nightmare before Christmas". If you haven't watched it yet you're missing out... 

8) Favourite Halloween Candy?

Do Pretzel M&M's count?? I mean they are delicious and I am so happy you cannot get them outside the U.S. because that means I don't have to stop myself from eating them...woo hoo!!

9) What are you dressing up as this Halloween?

Well since Halloween is not celebrated here I won't be dressing up however I might do a Halloween look on my blog (does that count?).

10) Favourite Thing About Autumn

Oh dear....one thing only? That's impossible...
Well let's get started with the fact that it is my birthday season. Then, I love the colours, the weather, the smells, the warmer clothing and the fact that Christmas is just around the corner. 

Do you love Autumn?? If so get started on this tag...and please leave me a link to your post so I can read it!! 
Love you all....

Collective Haul

Hey girlies,

I have a small collective haul for you today. I have been accumulating some stuff since the beginning of September and I think that, at the moment, I have enough to do a haul.
As you can see it is a quite the mix...!!
Let's start with the Benefit goodies...
I picked up the "Go Tropicoral" kit. It comes with a mini Coralista blush, mini high Beam, mini Cha Cha tint and mini Coralista lipgloss and it is FABULOUS!! :p
I also picked up the Watt's Up solf focus highlighter which is gorgeous and I totally recommend it...!

Next let's have a look at some Body Shop products....
I re-purchased my all-time favourite Blue Corn face mask because I was running out of of my other cleansing face masks. I also picked up two home fragrance oils one in "Lavender" and one in 
"Tobacco Flower". 
Next are some MAC items...
I found this pro-pan e/s in "Bisque". I also did a BACK TO MAC and picked up "Ruby Woo" lipstick. I,also, bought the MAC MSF Natural in "Medium" and the shade suits my skin surprisingly well(btw it is much lighter than it looks in the photo).
Last but not least here are some nail products...
First the Sally Hansen "Insta-Dri" Anti-chip top coat. This is amazing!!!I was looking for a top-coat to replace my Seche-Vite which I absolutely love. However after some research I did I thought it would be good idea to try something else so I picked this up. 

Next we have the infamous Ciate Caviar Manicure. I haven't gotten around to really testing this yet but I will...;)
Last but not least I got this L'oreal Color Riche nail varnish in 205 "Rose Bagatelle"
I saw this on my friend Lydia's Blog and I rushed to get it...!! :) 
*Here swatched with Nails Inc "Chelsea Square" on the ring finger*

Aaaaand that was my collective haul!!Let me know what you think of the products and don't forget to check out my giveaway HERE...!!


Too faced "Glamour to go" palette and other bits and bobs 300 follower giveaway...!!

As of this moment I have 332 followers and over 40000 views which makes me extremely happy and excited. I have been (beauty) blogging since 2009 and it is now 2012. I like blogging and sharing tips, reviews, products and looks with you all and I am so glad that you follow my blog, comment on my posts and generally support me.
The older beauty bloggers probably remember the days when we blogged with 50 followers and didn't care one bit. When we didn't receive products from companies and still didn't care. When we used to contact each other and "converse" like we knew each other from Adam. Good times...
Anyway...I will stop rambling and get into the giveaway stuff...!!
Here are the prizes:

First and foremost we have the Too Faced "Glamour to Go" palette

This palette is excellent for travelling and for beginners. It comes with 8 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 1 bronzer and a lipgloss.
Next we have some bits and bobs...
A M.A.C lipgloss in "The wee coquette" (I have given this colour away in the past and I think it works well on so many different skin tones), A Sephora Eau de Toilette in Strawberry, a Vaseline Lip Therapy lip balm in Cocoa Butter and a knitted flower (yes I knit it myself) to use as a pin or a brooch. 
Last but not least I have some luxury samples for you...
Benefit's Total Moisture and It's potent!, Harajuku lovers (a set of 5) perfume samples and mini Estee Lauder sumptuous mascara in Black. 
Now on to the rules...
* Be a follower via GFC *
(this is the only PROPER rule really...)
For more info and extra entries options check the following form

This giveaway will be open until November 1st 2012 and I will be announcing the winner on the 2nd of November (my birthday) on my blog and on twitter alongside another mini giveaway that I am putting together...;)
That is all....!!
Good luck everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!
