My Fall Favourites | Guest Post

Hello lovelies! So, last in my string of guest posts here on Beauty Division, I am going to introduce to you the lovely Anne from LindaLibraLoca. I hope you've enjoyed reading up on some new blog posts from the lovely ladies over the last few weeks that have contributed here on the blog and maybe found a new read for yourself. I am still unsure as to when I will be fully back, up and running on Beauty Division myself as there's still plenty of things to do at the house and of course, being 34 weeks pregnant, it's taken a toll on me. In the meantime you can read up on any updates from me over on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter if you wish to.

Now, let's get to the last guest post shall we?

As the lovely Lauren is moving house this week, she offered me the opportunity to guest post on her blog. I hope all is going well with the move!
My name is Anne and you can usually find me at

Now that everybody seems to get into holiday mood I thought it would be a great time to round up my fall favourites. Quite a few of them will accompany me all through winter.

You can clearly spot a color theme in my picture, and it is true, oxblood has been my favorite color during this fall (and last, to be honest).

On my nails I have been wearing Essie´s "Sole Mate“"more than anything else.
I am a true Essie fan girl, and this pretty oxblood shade is everything I love: Opaque in one coat (although I always do two), long-lasting and stunning against pale winter skin.

When I want a really bold, dark lip, MAC „Dark Deed“ is my go-to color. Sadly it was limited edition, but Temptalia has a great Dupe List on her page if you are looking for a similar color. You will definitely need a lip liner with this one, and I usually color in my whole lip with the liner before applying the lipstick. That way the color lasts longer (about four hours when you aren't eating or drinking.)

The perfume I have been loving lately is DOLCE&GABBANA Intense Eau de Parfum, not only because of the pretty red and gold packaging.
It was a present from Mr. Loca, so I was apprehensive at first. In my opinion, gifting a perfume almost always goes wrong, but this is one of the rare occasions it worked perfectly well. There is a hint of citrus, flowers and sandalwood, smelling warm without being overpowering. The perfect everyday fall scent.

To protect my pout, Nuxe Rêve de Miel is used twice a day. This matte looking lip balm contains honey, known for its nourishing properties. The consistency is quite thick. If applied in the evening, I can still feel it on my lips come morning.

On my face I have been using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair II. The heating and the cold winds take their toll on my skin, but this serum, applied every night before my moisturizer, fights redness and fine lines at the same time. A winning combo!

Non-beauty favorites, receiving a honorable mention here, are Hot Chocolate (with marshmallows, hmmm), thick knitted scarfs (oxblood, obviously, with tiny specs of glitter) and scented candles. Shown here is a small Yankee Candle in the scent "Honey and Spice". Don't be fooled by the size though, burning it for half an hour scents my whole apartment.

Looking at all those beautiful things I think it is time to cozy all up and ignore the rain against my window.

What are your favorites this season? Tell me in the comments below!

Again, if you enjoyed reading up on Anne's guest post then do check out her blog as linked above. I really appreciate and am grateful for those that have offered to write up a guest post for me while I've been inactive on the blog over the last few weeks. If you'd love to contribute towards Beauty Division with a guest post while I'm still inactive here on the blog I would highly appreciate it. You can contact me at or tweet me if you're interested.
