Photograph Your Day

I've seen a few bloggers lately doing the Photograph Your Day tag so I thought I'd have a go myself. I'll admit now it's not an exciting or unusual day by any stretch of the imagination but here's an insight into a typical day in my life.

So that's it for my day, I'm aiming to do another post like this while i'm on holiday so hopefully it''ll be a little more interesting!

Song Of The Month | September

This month i'm massively into Alt-J. Until recently I only really knew one or two songs but after stumbling upon their debut album An Awesome Wave, i've realised their utter brilliance. Alt-J are one of the few bands whose instrumentals are as beautiful, if not better than the vocals. The album has the perfect mixture of upbeat, catchy songs and more mellow, peaceful songs. After much debate, I think I can say that Taro is my favourite track. I seem to listen to it anywhere up to ten times a day because I can't get enough of the Indian style instrumental, it just makes me want to take up bollywood dancing or skip joyfully through the centre of town! Enjoy!

September Favourites

So it seems like Summer was a million years ago now we're settled snugly into Autumn, but before the Winter blues arrive there's time to squeeze in a few over sized jumpers, crunchy leaves and cinnamon lattes! As much as I've enjoyed lazing in the sun for the last couple of months, Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year. With 89 days left until Christmas, the festive spirit is already growing inside of me and i'm ticking off the days so are the products i'm stocking up on this September. (I apologise again for the poor quality of the photographs, i'm working towards a better camera.)

Salted Caramel Yankee Candle
This thing smells so delicious, words can't give it enough credit. Without even being lit is fills my entire house with a warm, winter smell of home baking.

Dorothy Perkins Rose Stitch Jumper
Every girl needs a thick knit winter jumper and I believe i've found the perfect one. My rubbish camera doesn't do the colour justice, it's more of a soft, musty pink whereas this photo kind of makes it look beige! I style it with absolutely anything and it fits comfortably under a jacket, perfect for these crisp mornings.

Golden Snitch Necklace Watch
Definitely an unusual choice for a favourites post, but i'm head over heels in love this quirky Harry Potter inspired necklace watch I bought on Etsy. Gold necklaces are huge this season but i find the chunky chains a bit too much for my taste so this interesting piece is a winner for me.

L'Oréal Paris Addictive Plum Nail Varnish
Autumn is all about rustic red tones and this gorgeous polish is the exact same shade as the falling leaves of a tree in my garden. Red nail varnish will bring extra warmth and sophistication to any outfit and helps to lighten up the early nights.

Gingerbread Latte
There's nothing like a good coffee to keep you toasty now the weather's turning and my favourite winter drink has to be a gingerbread latte. The only way to describe it is the taste of Christmas! Although they can be sickly in larger sizes so stick to a small treat for a blissful boost.

Cranberry Vans
Another beautiful autumnal colour, I received these for my birthday at the very end of August and have worn them most days since! I'm a huge vans fan as they go with literally every outfit and the soles make them supportive and comfortable. The colour really livens up a plain outfit so you can enjoy a leaf crunching walk in style.

Lancôme Paris Trésor In Love Perfume
My final favourite for this month (I know I did too many, sorry) is  Trésor In Love perfume from Lancôme Paris. The scent is really feminine and floral, as is the really pretty bottle. I find it carries one last waft of Summer through to the colder months to remind me that one day I will actually be able to feel my toes again!
So those were my favourite products this September and i'm looking forward to more cosy essentials in November!
