burnt brown matte kylie jenner make up

I mean I use the word summer very loosely obviously living in England but hey – maybe that’s why I’m just wishing Autumn along already. This limbo is a tad tiresome and I can’t help but long for boots, coats, scarves and chestnut latte’s already. Ah a girl can dream! Anyway I digress. Kylie Jenner made this kinda shade popular but I’ve always loved a burnt brown lip for a warm beauty look.

I know we just paid homage to my favourite shade of all time but this past Thanksgiving weekend played a big inspiration on my beauty, style and let’s be honest — food choices.

I spent the wonderful weekend eating a LOT of amazing food (most of which involved colours of orange, cream and brown — I love cheese and carbs).

{Fall favourites}

Suffice to say my favourite shade when it comes to autumn (fall) is burgundy. What, you didn’t know?! From berry hues of handbags to deepened wine lips I’m all about mixing elements of this gorgeous autumn appropriate shade in to my wardrobe.

It lends itself marvellously to shades of black, mustard, cream and brown. Chocolate eyes and wine lips…one of my favourite looks for autumn.

What’s your go-to colour palette for this season?

{My living room}

I’ve always wanted a living space that allowed for a lot of light. After growing up in the UK we didn’t get copious amounts of sunlight but I did learn a trick or two about faking it with the right hues.

My living space in Toronto boasts shades of yellow, to brighten and add a pop of colour, navy to add depth and neutrals like cream, grey and black to ground the mix of colours.

I have a thing for graphics on cushions so I picked up this bicycle one and a range of colours from Homesense.

Don’t be afraid to mix textures too. This makes everything feel a whole lot more cozy. Speaking of cozy…the yellow, knitted Cynthia Rowley throw was a stellar buy. Comfy and colourful, that too was picked up at Homesense.

One of my favourite pieces of the room entirely has to be the world map decal I got from Urban Wall Decals. I’m adding dots of silver nail polish to keep track of where I’ve visited and inspire me to travel more!

As we transition in to the fall months I’m thinking of changing the colour scheme up a bit but still not quite sure on the direction.

Any suggestions?
