Hope you’re well and have all had a good week?
I don’t know about you, but it’s really starting to feel like autumn now for me. September and October are my absolute favourite months of the year, there’s just something unbeatable about crisp mornings, crunchy leaves, and pumpkin spiced lattes – basic, I know, but true!
So now the weather is starting to change, this week’s blog is going to include some of my must-have autumn buys to get you in the mood for the new season ahead.
Now, without further ado, here’s this week’s “Save, Spend, Splurge”.
ESPA Soothing Pulse Point Oil
Price: £21.00 – (Several discount codes available, see below)
Where to buy: Lookfantastic
Now the nights are drawing in, I’m really enjoying getting back into a proper self-care evening routine. A product I’ve recently added to my night-time regime is the ESPA Soothing Pulse Point Oil.
While I use it at night, the handy pocket-sized roller bottle means you can apply it whenever and wherever if you need to bring a moment of calm to a busy day.
The oil is a blend of sandalwood, rose geranium and frankincense, as well as myrrh to help boost inner calm, and it really does smell divine.
I pop a couple of dabs onto my neck before bed and it helps you calmly drift off to sleep – bliss!
At £21.00, obviously it’s above the usual £10 “Save” cap, however, the reason it’s featured as a “Save” product is because there are some fantastic savings/discount codes to take advantage of if you purchase through Lookfantastic.
If you’re a new customer, you can use the code “21NC” to get 21% off, and existing customers can bag themselves 20% off with the code “REV75” (minimum spend, £75).[Disclaimer: This product was gifted to me, but if you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I love ESPA and would definitely purchase this again with my own money!]
“Hey Pumpkin” doormat
Where to buy: OurLittleHomePrints
Now that summer is over, I’m all about the seasonal décor – aka, pass me the fairy lights and candles!
And if you’re looking to make the outside of your home just as cosy as the inside, then this doormat is for you!
This gorgeous “Hello Pumpkin” door mat is hand-painted by Instagram-maker Chelsea (OurLittleHomePrints) and is a super cute way to bring some autumnal vibes to your home.
Priced at £20.99, it’s also a pretty budget-friendly way of sprucing up an often-dull corner of your home too!
Chelsea has an AMAZING Instagram home account as well, so go and give her a follow for the most gorgeous home-inspo: @ourlittlehome2017
ASOS Design Check Trench Coat
Where to buy: ASOS
While it’s easy to get carried away with buying hundreds of coats in the autumn/winter, I try to stick with buying one staple item that can be paired with a number of outfits.
Last year, it was a cream teddy coat that I literally wore to death, and this year, my purchase is this gorgeous trench coat from ASOS.
I saw this on Instagram earlier in the week and being the compulsive swipe-to-shop sucker that I am, I bought it straight away – but I was not disappointed!
It’s such a versatile coat that you can chuck it over a pair of jeans and converses or put it over a dress for a chic office look.
I’m quite tall, and it finishes about mid-calf – true to the traditional trench style – but I did size up so I can pop a hoody/jumper underneath, which is a great alternative way to style your coat this autumn.
