I ❤ Autumn

Copy of Autumn

The downside of living in a desert country is that you will only get two seasons: very hot summer and mild summer. For some people this might be ideal but for me not really. I like all the four seasons and there is nothing more I like than to daydream about them when most of the world is enjoying them and I am not.

Autumn is my favorite among the four and the amount of autumnal vibes coming my way through social media this month made me want to write a huge post on all the things I love about this gorgeous season. ❤

Changing Colors

Changing Colors

This is my most favorite part of autumn. I love how the trees change colors from green to yellow and orange. I love how the roads and parks are filled with dried up leaves and the crunchy sound they make when a person walks on them. Sunsets become even more beautiful than usual with the sky displaying shades of deep blue, pink, purple and violet and a trip to the beach is always an amazing idea.

Outdoors

Outdoors

I love it when summer turns to autumn and instead of harsh heat we are welcomed by a cool breeze in the afternoon and evening. For someone who works out this is such a great time to leave the gym or indoors for a while and do their cardio outside. I love walking in huge parks that are not stripped off most of their nature. I love it when we can walk to places that are not very far to get some errands done. I just generally like the whole idea of spending more time out in the nature when the weather is being such a babe.

Hot Beverages

After summer and all the cold beverages encircling that season, I love how the choices go from cold coffee/tea and frappuccino to latte, mocha, macchiato, black and green tea. I love drinks so I am always happy when there is a change in that section. I also love how Starbucks comes out autumn inspired drinks like ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte’ and if you’re lucky enough you get autumn themed cups to go with them.

Trends

Trends

I love how the lip colors get berry colored bolder and eye lashes become intense than usual. The copper eyelids are another of my favorite thing about this season. Fashion wise I love how everything starts getting darker. Maroon and navy blue colors are such hits. I love those stunning slouchy sweaters and blanket-y yet stylish scarves people start wrapping around them. I also like how everyone starts wearing super cool boots and sneakers.

Halloween

I love it how with the start of autumn everyone gets excited for Halloween for real and planning their getups. I like it how YouTube gets filled up with videos and tutorials of new ideas every day. I love the mad obsession with pumpkins too and lovely shots people post on their Instagram.

All the Other Things

These are things that I haven’t experienced yet but love them still. I love how everyone starts talking about and buying new fall inspired candles and fairy lights and lanterns become a part of home décor. I love it when people talk about Lush Bath bombs or put up picture of the lovely effect of them in their tubs.

The Queen of All Red Lipsticks ~ MAC Ruby Woo

I love a good lipstick but I don’t wear them at all. I am always very self conscious when I have them on in public, which is very unlike me, so I usually don’t bother with them. There is just one shade I can’t resist – Red. I love trying different red lipsticks from everywhere but I never found any that would beat my Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in 527 Lady Red.

A couple of months back I went to MAC and that’s when I saw Ruby Woo. This is not a small name in the makeup industry. This lipstick has a cult following and is considered a must-have in anyone’s collection. My encounter with it was instant love and I marked it on my ‘I am never buying this’ wish list. The reason was simple; at RO 9.250, I could not justify the purchase as I would never use it. Though that did not stop me from crying about it to everyone I know.

My birthday came in May which was a pathetic affair. All my family was busy with work and couldn’t even make it to dinner and I had to spend it alone with my sister-in-law. She was trying so hard to cheer me up but nothing worked. I was feeling miserable and that’s when she surprised me with a pretty black bag from MAC and guess what it held – RUBY WOO. I WAS SO HAPPY!!!!

Ruby Woo is a part of MAC Retro Matte Finish range and comes in their standard black bullet packaging. It has a very pleasant vanilla smell and taste. It has the most beautiful blues tones which makes it the deepest red there ever can be. Its lasting power is good as long as you are not eating or drinking. The best thing about this lipstick is that it goes fabulously with all skin tones making it an instant classic.

It just has one problem; its formula is very drying so it drags on your lips when you apply it. It’s not that big of a problem but for some it can be. It is nothing you can’t work out. I have noticed that if I am taking care of my lips which mean they are well scrubbed or I am using lip balm every day, it glides on without dragging. But if you are a lazy bum, that I am mostly, and lip prep session is never in your routine, this will be a bummer. I am linking a post written by Fatima from Lipsticks and Coffee. She recently wrote about Ruby Woo and has a good tip to share. Click here to read it! 🙂

If you are into red lips you need to buy Ruby Woo. If you’ve swatched it, I assure you there is no dupe that would ever satisfy you just as much as the original. It is such a unique color and deserves all the hype it gets.

I want to thank my sister-in-law so very much for this gorgeous present. If it were to me I know it would have still been on that wish list but thanks to her, I own it now and rock it (ft. in my bedroom with DJ Snapchat).
