I have never let lanterns off before which seems a little strange, but as a celebration me and my friends decided to. It was such a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion and watch them lead off into the night sky along side the stars was a beautiful affair. We bought all different colours which was lovely and it really brightened up the occasion.
Have you ever lit lanterns?

The second my sister mentioned she was going to New York the first thing which entered my little brain was Marc Jacobs! I think this is a little bit sad but my god am I glad to have my hands of this goddess of a palette. It is The Lolita Palette (206) coming from Marc Jacobs beauty range.
The pictures definitely do not do this beauty justice, but it features seven beautiful shades which are all easily wearable depending on your desired look. The colours featured in the palette are a matte off-white cream, matte nude, matte dark coffee brown, metallic warm pink with iridescent glitter, iridescent champagne pink seen, light peach sheen and rosy copper sheen. All the colours compliment each other perfectly and with a swipe over of the eyelid it creates a beautiful natural look which you can blend together to create a day or night look.
I could not go without mentioning the packaging, it is so slim and slender and looks so sophisticated on your make up desk, and as part of your collection. It also means it is easy to pack when you are travelling as it easily fits into your makeup bag with little fuss or space. Marc Jacob its renowned for it's fancy perfume packaging, and the black shiny shell to the palettes has not let us down! The price tag attached to this is $59.00 which is approximately £37, I would say this is good value in comparison with the Urban Decay Naked Palette which has the same price tag. You cant buy this from Sephora in store or online currently.
Will you be adding this to your Christmas list this year?

I am totally in love with this product, and will definitely be stocking up on these as soon as possible. This is perfect for a night when you need to de-stress after having a ridiculously busy day. It costs £3.50, but as I said you can make it last for two baths which I think is really good value.

In my recent Primark Purchases post I featured these candles as autumn essentials. They are just £2 and they have some really lovely scents in the collection. I had not tried this scent before which is Red Berries and Orchid but it smells lovely and is perfect for these colder months. I have previously purchased a different candle from the same collection in the scent Rose and Orchid, it is currently standing on my mantle piece but there is barely anything left in it. They have 30 hours of burning in them, which I would say is very good value considering the price. I understand that obviously the scents are not going to as exotic as more high end brands such as Jo Malone, but I think that they look pretty and the packaging doesn't actually look too cheap.
What is your favourite candle at the moment?
