9 pieces of knitwear you need in your life

Sweater weather is here! Hell to the yes, I literally love jumpers, cardigans, knitwear, however many times you want to say it – I just wanna be cosy af all the time. Here are 9 pieces fresh from three of my fave high street brands to shop from that I am loving for the new season.

ASOS

ASOS is bringing the big guns this year when it comes to knitwear and they have nailed it with this oversized crew neck cream jumper. It is pure Pinterest perfection and is 100% going straight in my basket when a little discount rolls my way. Two super bright beauties that I’m loving have to be the fluffy lilac jumper with wide sleeves – (how amazing is this colour?) and the PrettyLittleThing three tiered baby blue jumper. Who said AW had to be all boring and dark? Not ASOS!

3 essential adulting things to learn

Adulting is so boring sometimes but, I’ll let you into a secret, it actually feels so good when you understand how to do something super adult-y. I’m talking the boring shit that your mum or dad always used (and still sometimes do) for you. Here are three adulting nightmares that we’ve overcome in the past year or so that I thought I’d offer some boring (but helpful) tips on. =&0=& Utilities are the one thing that no one wants to pay for, right? It’s so annoying. But, it’s even more annoying when you overspend on these things and don’t know how to save money. We learned the hard way and now we know exactly how to use our water heating without using the ‘boost’ button that costs loads of money! Yay. Some home shit that I’d massively recommend learning about is storage heaters if you live in a flat. These can rinse your money SO BADLY. We got a nasty surprise with our electric because we didn’t know how to use them properly so it feels awesome going into winter actually knowing what we’re doing now. Top tip:  Ask your landlord or estate agency people for all of the info on your boiler, your heating appliances and everything else that you might not know exactly how to use before you get a nasty bill. =&1=& Spending money on car stuff is the worst and remembering when to do it is even more annoying but it’s easier to get stuff sorted and spend £100 than to be stuck on a country road broken down when it’s raining. Check your brakes, change your tyres when you need to, get your service done like your dad always tells you too and don’t forget about your MOT because you could get in trouble for not having one if you get into an accident or anything. Top tip:=&2=&

5 things on my September wish list

As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear.

6 beauty products I’m loving rn

I rarely purchase new makeup these days because I’m trying to use up everything I’ve already got but I have picked up some new bits over the past couple of weeks that I’m really enjoying so I wanted to share some of these gems with y’all.

We ran into some lovely Benefit samples at work and I went home with the Benefit GoGo Tint and the Benefit They’re Real Duo Shadow Blender which was a lovely surprise. Let’s start with the eyeshadow. The weird little applicator is impossible to use so let’s just forget about that. It’s tiny and you can not keep hold of it unless you have a pincer grip. But, the product itself, being the eyeshadow is a beautiful rich taupe-y brown shade and I’ve been using it almost everyday because it’s lovely and matte. The shimmery shade is also a great highlight colour and the formula of both is buttery and smooth and really long lasting.

When our summer social rolled around for work I was instantly stuck for what to wear but I had to think quick. This was my situ! Let me know your go-to going out style in the comments, maybe you’ll inspire me!
