Another fabulous beauty box arrived from Boots whilst I was on holiday and this one was a ‘Give it a go’ box full of products that have been associated with their ‘Lets Give it a Go’ events that are happening in store each Friday in Boots stores at 4pm. It’s a chance for you to pop in, speak to the experts and try new things you wouldn’t normally opt for! Whether it’s a berry lip, brighter nail polish or filling in those brows... Try something new and Lets Give It A Go!

Another holiday post, sorry. But today, I’m going to reveal some of the items that I couldn’t have got through the week without. There’s a mixture of everything really and I hope that if you’re off on holiday soon or even when you come to go next year, you’ll remember what I’m telling you about these holiday must have’s.

1. Ok we're talking coffee's - What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
Although I’d normally drink a Hazelnut Latte (from Costa, obvs) when it comes to winter, I love the White Hot Chocolate or the Hot Spiced Apple drinks. You have to try them both if you haven’t already!
2. Accessories - What do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I’m a lover of scarfs and gloves but can never seem to find my gloves when it comes round to needing them!
3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I don’t think I have a favourite seasonal music genre so just anything that’s currently in the charts.
4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I don’t really have a mix of perfumes for winter etc but I’m loving Ghost at the moment!
5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
We have a mixture of candles in the flat at the moment but I definitely need to go and pick some more up. I think I want a Firewood one and then some more Cinnamon wax tarts to burn off too!
6. What do you love most about Autumn?
The leaves changing colour, the nights drawing in and the fact you don’t need an excuse to have a duvet day - sit and watch films and drink tea all day!
7. Favourite makeup look?
Probably neutrals or golds and browns. Perfect to match the turning leaves!
8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
The different events that come with it i.e. Halloween, Bonfire night and then the countdown to Christmas!

I mentioned in my Selfridges Perfecting Beauty event post that I got myself a new MAC Lipstick from Back to MAC’ing 6 of my empty MAC products. I took back 3 eyeshadow pots that had been de-potted into a palette, an empty MSF and 2 empty duo eyeshadow pots and for all of those, you get to choose a FREE lipstick. I had in mind a purple, it was going to be Rebel but when I saw this, I knew I needed it.
Smoked Purple is kind of in-between Cyber and Rebel with more blue undertones to it and a lot darker than Rebel but not as deep and dark as Cyber, I think a lot more people will be able to pull this off compared to those who can’t pull off Cyber. It’s the perfect shade for Autumn and it goes perfect with a smokey eye or even a bold liner too! It’s a Matte Lipstick and because it’s a dark shade, you can obviously see my natural lip colour come through on the opening of my mouth but it’s unavoidable and at least means no lipstick teeth!
You can Back to MAC your empty containers at any MAC store in return for a free lipstick of your choice (i’m not sure this includes promotional collections though) or if you’re looking for a new lipstick, you can buy them online.
What’s your favourite Autumnal MAC lipstick?
