That autumn feeling


Sitting on a park bench, toes tucked in nicely into some black boots, knees warmed by pulled up socks and fingers tightly knit around a hot drink. A single red and orange leaf slowly falls into a puddle nearby, making the water crackle and dance around it. I take out the magazine I just bought and flick trough the pages, finding new trends and ways to wear those summer dresses. I look down at my coat and smile to myself, thinking that I may have worn something trendy for once. I put the magazine back into my handbag, take out my mirror and touch up the burgundy lipstick before I jump up and walk through the arch of red  trees. A nearby stall is selling pumpkin pies, another freshly ground coffee, the other some crepes. The aromas of Autumn fill the air and make me so happy I grin like an idiot to myself.

Time goes by so quickly, and with Christmas just around the corner, I’m going to show you 5 gifts for under €15, that are so pretty and perfect for her. All of these gifts can be found at Boots, so it’s so simple.

It comes in a really pretty cosmetic bag, to store all the products in. The top part is purple, the bottom white. (This gift set is from their Origami Collection.)

It costs €14.25, or 1,425 points, if you have a Boots Advantage card. Any girl will love this. It smells incredible too!!

Its a very gorgeous and girly light pink lipstick, with a slightly darker nail varnish. This lipstick feels so soft on the lips and smells incredible. The nail varnish is also a very pretty but subtle pink colour. Perfect for any girly girl.

It costs €10, or 1,ooo points on the Boots Advantage card.

It is the perfect colour for the holidays, and will add some sophistication to any outfit. It’s the same price and is called Ted Baker Lovely Lindy Hop Nail Varnish and Lip Gloss Set.

You can create a subtle more nude eye, or go all out for a Christmas party. These colours are quite pigmented and very pretty. I especially love the turquoise-green colour in the second row on the right.

It costs €15, or 1,500 points on your Boots Advantage Card.

It is perfect for traveling when on holiday or at home. The three mini products consist of a foaming bath soak, a body wash and a body lotion. Spa night at home!

It costs €10, or 1,000 worth of points.

It comes an a very pretty box, with a loofah, a body wash, mini body polish, mini body butter and a body spray. The products smell very clean and indulging. If that makes sense?

It costs €15, or 1,500 worth of points.

I hope you enjoy and have a lovely Christmas.

Good Luck. xx
