Everyone & their cat have been writing blog posts about how important it is to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn. I guess. In Europe. In America. In Australia. In Asia. In Africa. Well, not in the UK. It’s been the same shitty weather the whole summer and I have been wearing coats and jumpers all year around. I mean, really?! The only routine I will be adapting to autumn (September) is my skincare – the weather is crisper, the air is dryer and it’s slightly windier. These have been my skin saviours this month – plus a few more bits & bobs I’ve fallen in love with.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ Unifiant (£16.50, Boots – buy here, full review here)
A beautiful tinted skincare which will cover up spots whilst also treating them. It also works wonder on blemishes and skin discolouration.
(189CZK- ca £6, Apoteka Havlik – buy )
I have been enjoying a lot of face masks lately (in pointless hope of rejuvenating the sad looking sun-lustre skin). This one smells like fresh garden herbs (although it contains cannabis so hem) and makes my skin super soft & awake. Perfect for cold September mornings.
Rituals The Ritual of Karma Good Karma Mist (£16.50, Rituals – buy here)
A magical mix of holy lotus & bergamot – this smells so cosy, crisp & clean I can’t even begin to tell you. A gorgeous scent that will smell even better on freshly washed white sheets and a cosy fluffy jumper dress!
Abbe Prevost – Manon Lescaut (£9.99, Amazon – buy here)
One of my favourite love stories about a knight De Grieux who fell in love with Manon – a stunning girl who loved him back wholeheartedly. Just as much as she loved money. It’s a sad one but very memorable. Get yourself a cuppa of hot chocolate, some marshmallows on top & snuggle up. You will love it!
And here’s a bonus video to brighten up your september:
