This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray Quick Review

I'm not an insomniac, but sometimes I do find my tendency to overthink leaves me rather anxious, resulting in a bad nights sleep. I picked up the This Works Deep Sleep Spray in the hope that it may help soothe me and help me drift off to the land of nod.

At £16 per bottle (75ml) this stuff isn't on the cheap side, so here's why I think it is worth splashing your cash on.
This Works Deep Sleep Spray Review
Often the problem with not getting enough sleep is not being able to clear your mind in order to relax. Once you've sprayed a couple of squirts of Deep Sleep onto your pillow, the lavender scent really helps to soothe you. I find the scent is comforting and I feel my thoughts becoming 'softer' as I give into the relaxation and I fall quickly into a deep sleep.
I can honestly say this product and it's scent help rid my mind of thoughts and provides me with a good nights sleep.
I give this product a 4.5/5. If you struggle with sleep it's worth the investment!

October Wishlist featuring Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass, Benefit and GHD

I've been uploaded quite a few hefty posts lately so I thought I'd keep this one light and give you an overview of my current wishlist.

I've had my GHD’s for a few years now, they still work but I feel they just aren't as good as they used to be. I’ll be handing my old pair to my sister and treating myself to a brand new pair.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette - £56
Ever since I laid my eyes on the press release for Hourglass’ Ambient Light Blush palette, I knew it had to be mine. I was sold on the rose gold packaging, never mind the blush shades. I wasn’t overly bothered by the original powder palette, I stay away from luminising setting powders due to my oily skin. I do enjoy a rosey glowy cheek though, so I've justified the high price point by saying I won’t have to buy any new blusher shades for a while. These variations will have me set for every make-up look.

I’m often dubious about Benefit products, I feel they push their latest release in front of a select group of bloggers, who write rave reviews without any qualms. I thought this about the Gimme Brow release, I couldn’t believe that a little brow gel could be so amazing. After doing plenty of research and looking at before and after shots, I really am sold. Now it’s made its way to my wishlist!
Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong according to the beauty blogging community. I agree from first impressions, impressive packaging and a beautiful range of colours and products has really got me lusting. As an eyeshadow fanatic, I've set my heart on a new palette. I love the rusty shimmer shade, it would amazing paired with the burgundy for an Autumnal look.
Another Tilbury product has been added to my lust list after a number of my favourite bloggers, including Kat at Sugar Fixx, described this lip liner as you’re lips but better and more plumped up. I think this will look great with my MAC Please Me lipstick.
What’s on your wishlist?

Autumn Make-up - Transitional Colours featuring. MAC, Topshop, Nails Inc & Max Factor

Autumn Make-up - Transitional Colours featuring. MAC, Topshop, Nails Inc & Max Factor
I've spent my week clearing out my wardrobe and make-up drawers. I started a new job as a Marketing Coordinator this week, so decided that it would be the ideal opportunity to de-clutter and have a fresh start for the Autumn season.
I refreshed my Muji drawers, binning anything that I hadn't used in the last month or two and bringing forward my favourite Autumn hues.
Purple, red and brown tones are always on trend for both fashion and make-up in the Autumn, here's my favourite transitional colours and products.
Autumn Make-up - Transitional Colours MAC
My favourite MAC eyeshadows for this time of year are Nocturnelle, which is a bright purple shade, Twinks, which is a beautiful mix of purple and brown and Club, which is duo-chrome shade that looks green in some lights and brown in others. I usually pair these shades with a lighter lid colour as I'm not overly adventurous with colour.

Another eyeshadow pick is Topshop's Eye Crayon in Mystical. It's a lovely wearable brown shade. I've never tried the By Terry Ombre Blackstar eyeshadows but I imagine that this Topshop stick is an affordable dupe.
MAC lipsticks have to feature in an Autumn make-up post. They have a wonderful range of darker hues, which give any make-up look an Autumnal feel. Two of my favourites are Girl About Town, which is a pinky purple, I love how vibrant it is and the second is Russian Red, which is perfect for a pin-up pout.

We can't forget nails! I tend to paint my nails more in the winter, I enjoy reds and purples much more than bright corals and pinks, which feature on most blogs during the summer months.
My favourite shades for Autumn are Max Factor's Fantasy Fire, Nails Inc's Saville Row and Seche's Rogue.
Fantasy Fire is a unique duo-chrome shade, which like it's name suggests has a fiery amber shade, which runs through the purple base. This does take a few coats to become opaque but it's so worth the effort.
I believe I picked up the Nails Inc shade when it was a magazine freebie. I love the quality of the Nails Inc polishes and this purple hue is always on my nails in the Autumn.
If you love the original Seche top coat, you'll love this rogue shade. It has a high gloss finish and teamed with the brand's top coat, it last forever.

Autumn Make-up - Transitional Colours Nails
I'm very much looking forward to Autumn, it's my favourite time of year, I can't wait to try out a few Autumnal looks with these products.
What are your favourite Autumn transitional make-up shades?
