Oh those autumn moments

Are you anything like me and love reading room tours? I love seeing a beautiful space that someone has created and that there is something personal about it being one's den, refuge. I love to see the little details
 that give away the season or time of year: candles, an extra throw on the bed, a fluffy dressing gown.

The dark mornings that mean a few extra minutes to an hour in bed as Oscar wakes up later. The little boy eating cinnamon raisin fruitbread, curious while I take my photos! I have to be sneaky to take shots of him as, as soon as he realises what is happening, he rushes off like a shot, refusing to feature in them.
This doughnut smells and tastes as amazing as it looks. Buy a box of three and you can smell the heavenly toffee maple scent from the bag! This is an incredible twist on the original glazed, my all time favourite and I love the little crunchy toppings and gold sparkles. I wish these were available all year round.

I've been seeking something to brighten up my complexion a little, especially in the dark winter days to come. I have invested in Maybelline's Master strobing stick highlight, in the shade 'medium' to add a bit of bronze to my face! It's a gentle and subtle shimmer, which I love.
I love visiting museums and galleries in autumn, especially to see my favourite Pre Raphaelites Hesperia by Frank Dicksee and I adore the painting on the left by John Atkinson Grimshaw. It's so gorgeous and atmospheric, and definitely makes me feel like collecting conkers and listening to piano music.
I am so excited to see both the Lush Halloween and Christmas collections already in store! It is the perfect season for bubble baths and I have a new bubble bar to sample, Candy Mountain. It smells just like the Bubblegum lip scrub or Snow Fairy, so sweet and delicious! It's so pretty, glittery and shimmery.
Last year I had jar candles but this time I wanted to go for little votives. I love mixing up the scents and burning them alternatively; a few festive ones in there too, but they make the room smell so cosy and autumnal! Apples, cookies and cinnamon smell like autumn cooking: gingerbread men and apple pies.

I can't wait to cosy up and catch up on my blog replies and visiting back this week! I wondered, if you love my little pink corner, would you mind voting for me in the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards here? It would mean the world to me and I would love to vote back - just leave your link in the comments! Thank you so very much in advance are you loving bubble baths this autumn?
