The Fall Favourites TAG | Bow Bombshell 2015


Hi guys,
I'm back. I apologise for being missing in action for such a long time, but I have been extremely busy. I have been posting daily beauty and fashion tips on Twitter @BowBombshell - so definitely feel free to catch me over there, if you would like to. Again, I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to post lately, but I am back for good and I'm here to stay LOL. In regards to me mentioning trademarking a few months ago, I'm pleased to say I have now trademarked my company name internationally and that is now sorted and complete YAY! There was a lot of work to do with that, which is one of the reasons why I couldn't post as much as I wanted to.

Anyway, I have a lot of hauls to share with you guys over the next few months, as I have bought sooo much. Plus, all of the holiday palettes are slowly starting to come out now and I have cheekily purchased some - so I would love to share them with you also.

In today's post I am going to do Jaclyn Hill's Fall Favourites TAG. Firstly, I have to say I love Jaclyn. Not only is she a great make-up artist, but she seems like such a sweet girl. I'm sure many of you watch her and love her videos too, which is why I thought it would be good to come back and share with you all my answers from her new tag. I absolutely love Autumn (or what I will be referring to as Fall during this post LOL) and this seemed like an appropriate tag for me to do. Jaclyn set nine questions, however, I thought I would add in another one, just to make it an equal number. Perfectionist problems right there haha.

After that long ramble, let's get into it...

Favourite candle?
I adore candles! I feel candles truly make a house a home, by the way they set the ambiance and mood. I like a fair few candle companies, but one that I have been loving in particular is Diptyque. I mainly buy mine from Space NK, but you can also purchase them at John Lewis and Selfridges. My favourite two currently are the Vanille and Ambre scents (basically the Vanilla and Amber LOL). My mum is also a fan of the brand, so we always seem to have one burning at any given time. I also want to do a quick shout out to Neom, as I love their candles too. My mum actually introduced me to the brand a few years ago, when she bought me a Neom gift set and ever since I have been in love. They make the most luxurious natural candles and bath products.

Favourite lip colour?
I have been loving the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita for a while now. So much so, that I have nearly finished my first tube and I luckily have a backup. If you are from the UK and you are wondering where you can get your hands on it, it's sadly not available over here. But rest assured, you can order one (of if you're like me, several) from the US Sephora website - which is what I always do. Sephora actually describe Lolita as a "chestnut rose", which is pretty accurate. Personally, I would say it's that perfect Kylie Jenner shade, that has a touch of the ever so cool 90's vibe, whilst still being modern and natural. I highly recommend all of the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks, but this shade is my favourite. Also side note: these babies last all day, do not crack or go funky and they look absolutely perfect.

Favourite drink?
This is probably a little controversial, but I do not drink any hot drinks LOL. I have just never been into them. So for me, I do not have a favourite Fall approved drink. I would love to go to Starbucks and order an ever so famous Pumpkin Spice Latte - but they sadly just aren't for me. So for this one I will have to say orange squash (how exciting) haha.

Favourite blush?
For me this is really hard, as I am a blush hoarder (well a total make-up junkie in general haha). But if I could only pick one, it would have to be the shade Sin by NARS Cosmetics. It's described as a "berry with gold shimmer" and that's truly what it is. Not only is the blusher super pigmented, finely milled and silky smooth, but once it's blended into the skin, it gives the most beautiful plummy glow to the cheeks. I would say a light hand is needed with this blusher, as too much can make you look slightly muddy or even worse bruised. However, as long as you use a good brush and get the application technique right, then I think it would work on a lot of different skin tones.

Favourite clothing item?
For me I love nothing more than a good snuggly jumper. However, even though jumpers sound a bit boring and drab, I mean glam jumpers LOL - in the sense that they have cute patterns and designs or feature glitter particles etc. I also love adding scarfs into my autumn and winter accessories. My current favourite is an orange and pink sheer scarf I own from Diane Von Furstenberg. It's lightweight and doesn't add any bulk, yet it still adds a special touch to any outfit. Lastly, I have to mention booties! Who doesn't love a good pair of boots during Fall?

Favourite Fall movie?
For a lighthearted film, I love to rewatch Hocus Pocus. I was a baby when the film was first released, but I still remember watching it years later. It's one of those classic old school films, that still manages to be entertaining today. Then in terms of scary films, I don't have a favourite, as I watch them year round. However, I do love watching even more horrors and psychological thrillers around Halloween.

Favourite TV show?
I don't watch a lot of TV anymore, so I'm not really up-to-date with the latest shows and series. But when I do watch TV, it tends to be true crime programmes or reruns of Law and Order - which I'm addicted to!

Favourite Thanksgiving food?
Well I don't celebrate Thanksgiving, as I am in the UK. But I will answer this question regardless. My favourite food during the colder months has to be roast dinners with all of the trimmings. Come on, surely everyone loves that?! I love it all from yorkshire puddings to stuffing and gravy. Another food I am currently liking is bean enchiladas (I personally have the vegetarian option, but you could have it with meat instead). I think it's delicious and I could certainly have it everyday LOL.

Favourite Halloween costume?
I hate to say this, but I haven't worn fancy dress in many years. There were a few occasions whilst I was at university that I could have worn fancy dress, but I just really didn't like the themes (vanity, hey?) haha. My last known Halloween costume was a cat, which isn't the most imaginative, but it was cute LOL. If you think I should dress up for Halloween this year, then let me know!

Favourite thing about Fall?
For me, Fall is my all-time favourite season. I like going for long walks and seeing the leaves change colour. I also enjoy going to more outdoor events, such as Christmas markets and fairs. This year I will also be going to the iconic Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park (yes I know I'm in my twenties, but there's nothing wrong with that, surely?) LOL, I just love it. Another thing I like about this time of year, is how all of the limited edition holiday palettes and gift sets are being released and as an avid collector, I already know they have a place within my beauty collection. I think I can also safely say that a lot of people love all of the festivities that happen during Fall (Halloween, Thanksgiving etc), which then lead up to the big C - yes that's right people, I'm going to say it... CHRISTMAS! Plus you get the opportunity to wrap up warm, eat tasty hot food and enjoy the change in seasons.

So, that's it! I hope you enjoyed my answers. I tag anybody that would like to do this. Also feel free to leave a comment sharing your link if you have done this tag on your blog also, as I would love to read your answers.

Lastly, let me know what you love the most about Autumn/Fall?

Stay beautiful everyone!
