Five Fall Favourites

Although I have been super busy at the moment and crap at posting anything, I thought I would do a quick post on some of my favourite things this Autumn/Fall, whatever you want to call it.
I just picked up a few things that I have been gravitating towards this month, with no particular plan of what kind of things I was going to be writing about.

MAC Sheertone Blush in Breath of Plum
I have been using this blush quite a lot over the last two months or so, because I find it goes with pretty much any make-up look I have going on. It is quite natural looking, and it looks particularly great with a dark lip.

Prada Candy
This is probably going to be a lifelong favourite of mine and I would love to be really accurate at describing smells but I am the worst. TO ME, this smells kind of floral, but warm and pretty sweet at the same time. If you don't like sweet perfumes you will absolutely hate this, but I'm not really into any kind of zesty, zingy smells when it comes to perfume and to me this is perfection.
I am a bit of a Daisy by Marc Jacobs kind of girl but I have been wearing this more at the moment (I feel like I am cheating on my boyfriend).

Ikea Apple & Cinnamon Candle
Am I right in thinking apple & cinnamon is a really Autumnal smell? I am sure a lot of the Diptyque/Neom candle girls out there would be disgusted by my taste in candles, but I absolutely love Ikea candles. They are so cheap and a lot of them smell so, so good. Some of them I am not so keen on, but I love this one and the rose one.

Barry M Nail Paint in Raspberry
This is new to me, old to most. I just think this is a really pretty colour for this time of year, when the leaves are all falling. (Although most of ours have been mushed by premature snow).
PS: I am aware that I should hate this because it is called 'Raspberry'- bleurgh.

The Body Shop Peach Body Butter
I am not a huge fan of The Body Shop body butters just because I used to work there so I kind of got bored of them and all the smells. However, I love the smell of peaches and so this is right up my street. It is so moisturising and I love covering myself in this before getting into bed so my bed smells all delicious too.

Let me know what your favourites are!
