Days are getting cooler, evenings are getting shorter and the leaves are just beginning to fall. It can only mean one thing - Autumn is well and truly here. There's something about this time of the year that makes me ridiculously happy. Growing up, I always loved the anticipation of Halloween. Getting to dress up and go trick or treating was my favourite (still kinda wish it was acceptable for adults to trick or treat. Haha). Mam forever had us dressed in the best D.I.Y costumes possible - witches, vampires... basically anything that a black bin bag could transform you into. She'd pull out the Halloween Essentials Kit that stayed hidden away from the previous October and do her thing with face paints, fake blood, wigs and glitter and by the time she was finished with us, we were ready to terrorise the neighbours... all 4 feet of us. As I've gotten older, things haven't changed much. Although I haven't worn a bin bag as a costume since I was 10, I'm still as excited as ever about Halloween. Here are a few more things I'm looking forward to this season!


Autumn Scented Candles 

Cosy Nights In

Horror Movies

A/W Style - Boots, Scarves, Chunky Knits



Christmas Is Coming!!!

Hocus Pocus

Crisp Autumn Mornings

Starting To Light The Fire (well, Dad staring to light the fire)

Seasonal Drinks In Starbucks / Costa

What are you looking forward to this Autumn?

September Favourites | Face Masks, Hair Extensions, Scream Queens + More!

Seriously. Where are the months going this year? I feel like 2015, more than any other year, has just flown by. Now that we're at the start of another month it's time to look back at all the things I loved in September from face masks to hair extensions and television - there's a little bit of everything thrown in there! If you have time, I'd love if you gave it a watch (I suggest snuggling up with your favourite hot drink and a blanket, but it's not necessary. haha).

What have you all been loving lately?
Also, who else is ridiculously excited that it's Autumn?!

XO, Grace.

Drab To Fab: 5 Easy Ways To Transform Your College Room

Before I started College in Dublin one thing I couldn't wait to do was decorate my new room. Moving out of home was a little daunting for 18 year old me but I knew that with the help of a few simple additions, my college room would turn into my very own home away from home in no time. While my room didn't quite measure up to the standards of the Pinterest perfect rooms in this post, it was close. It was cozy, comfortable and most of all it felt like home. Since so many of you are starting back to college this month, I figured now was as good a time as any to share my idea of the dreamiest 'college dorm' decor!

Here are a few simple ways to transform your college room into your own personal paradise - you'll never want to leave!

1. Add Pillows... Lots And Lots Of Pillows. And while your at it, throw as many layers on to your bed as possible. Plush duvets, cable knit blankets, hot water bottles, you name it - throw it all on your bed. Every extra layer brings the comfort of your room to a whole new level.

2. Create An Inspiration Board. Most college's provide their campus accommodation with cork boards but don't just leave it sitting empty for the year, grab some sheets of coloured paper and chic push pins from a craft store and get pinning your favourite quotes, pictures from home, assessment deadlines and college momentos. This will keep you organised all whilst providing your room with a little personal element!

3. All Of The Lights. You wouldn't believe the difference that lighting will make. Whether you go for a string of fairy lights or a bunch of candles, it totally transforms the ambience of your room.

4. Get Crafty. Nothing adds a personal touch quite like a little DIY. Get your creative hat on and embellish your wall with a tassel garland (find out how to make one of those HERE). Glitter covered mason jars can turn into the storage of dreams - use them to hold your make-up brushes, pens or toiletries.

5. Decorate Your Workspace With Sassy Stationary. My favourite. Automatically transform your boring work desk with the addition of some kick ass stationary - whether you opt for chic gold accents or multi coloured madness, it makes a huge difference. My weakness? Kate Spade. (This is an appropriate time for the heart eyes emoji).

Angled Smokey Eye

Hey Guys!

Here's a makeup look I wore out over the weekend! This has been my go-to makeup look for nights when I'm feeling a little more drama. It's pretty much your regular smokey eye with a little definition thrown in for good measure - I smoked out my liner with warm browns to give a little more of an angled look. I followed it up with a super smokey lower lash line and lots of lashes.

Still loving a bit of a 'greige' (grey/beige) lip - it tends to go with most makeup looks and is fantastic if you're looking for a bit of a statement but you're not into wearing a lot of eye makeup during the day (which is me all over)!

If you'd like me to record a tutorial on how I achieved this look make sure to let me know and I'll get my recording hat on!

Hope you're all having a good week!
As always, I'll leave a product list of what I used below!

XO, G.
