Autumn/Winter 2013 MUST HAVES!

Hey beauties! I have decided to dedicate a post to the A/W 13 season which, looking at the weather this week, is pretty much in full swing!  What better way to kick it off than to do a post on the staples/must haves of the season? So here we go...

  1. Tartan ScarfTartan is absolutely everywhere this season, and I for one love it.  Nothing feels more wintery than a nice big scarf, and team a big lovely scarf with the classic tartan pattern and you have a winter winner.  I have needed to get my hands on this one for a couple of weeks and still can't seem to find it. I'm sure there will be a similar version in most other shops soon so I suggest you all rush there to get your hands on one.  Lush!!
    (Tartan Scarf. £4. Primark)
  2. The Classic ParkaWho doesn't need a parka in their lives?  To me, they are the perfect winter coat! They go with just about everything and are always on trend!  I picked this one up a couple of weeks ago and it's so snug!
    (Khaki Parka. £55. Dorothy Perkins)
  3. Lip Balm
    I think this goes without saying.  The cold weather means dry, chapped lips.  Always, always ALWAYS carry a lip balm with you, you won't regret it.  The world has gone crazy for the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms recently and I can see why.  They come in 6 different flavours, 3 of which are tinted.  I picked up one of the tinted versions (Cherry Me), which is absolutely gorgeous.  Beautifully scented and a lovely hint of colour. Can't go wrong with these.
    (Maybelline Baby Lips. £2.99)
  4. Deep, Dark Lips!Deep reds, purples and plums are always a big hit once the cold weather hits.  Time to dig out your darker shades for the autumn/winter.  Especially for the party season! 
  5. Deep, Dark Nails!Need I say any more?  The same applies to nails as it does to the lips.  Time to ditch the pastels and dig out the rich, deep burgundys, blues and greens! Ooooooh I love it!
  6. Winter Friendly Moisturiser
    Obviously, your healthy, well moisturised summer skin takes a big hit once the cold weather arrives.  If your skin takes the change quite badly then it's maybe time to update your skincare to include a richer moisturiser and perhaps even a nice juicy serum to get that moisture back into your dehydrated skin!  Obviously you don't need to go all out and spend as much as the one I have pictured, I certainly haven't.  I've just heard a lot about this one recently so thought it could feature!
    (Philosophy Hope in a Jar. £34)
So there we go.  Stock up on the 6 items above and you should survive the extreme conditions. ha.  Hope this post was informative. 

What's on your Autumn/Winter must have list this year?
