So, I thought I'd do the I <3 Fall Tag today because I've seen quite a lot of people do it and thought that it would be fun to do. So, here goes:
1)Favourite Fall Lip Product?
I don't really have a specific favourite for fall but it would probably be my MUA Lipstick in Shade 5.
2) Favourite Fall Nail Polish?
Probably at the minute Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Plum Seduction which is (as the name suggests) a dark plumy, purpleish colour.
3) Favourite Starbucks Fall Drink?
I don't really go to Starbucks all that often but I like the Caramel Hot Chocolate with Cinnamon sprinkled on top.
4) Favourite Fall Candle?
I don't really tend to burn candles but I suppose anything Cinnamony really.
5) Favourite Fall Scarf/Accessory?
My big blue and red floral scarf from Primark last year or my new grey and black one from Primark this year.

6) Haunted House, Haunted Hay-Ride or Haunted Corn Maze?
I don't really know what a Haunted Hay-Ride or a Haunted Corn Maze is because I live in England so I'd probably say Haunted House.
7) Favourite Halloween Movie?
I don't really watch Halloween movies but probably Fright Night or Friday the 13th.
8) Favourite Candy to eat on Halloween?
Erm... Any i suppose.
9) What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
Nothing because I'm not doing anything but if I was probably a witch because I've already got the outfit!
10) What is your favourite thing about Fall?
Everything! I love the weather, the colours, the smells... just absolutely everything! It has to be my favourite season!
There you go guys. I tag all of you to do it and if you do leave a link below and I'll check it out. If you don't have a blog I'd love to see your answers down below in the comments. Remember to leave any posts that you want me to do below as well. 
Much love,

Halloween is not my favourite thing but I still like it and I think that its great that kids (and adults!) get the chance to dress up and go out trick or treating and have a great time. I love the spookiness of Halloween and I think that some of the costumes that you can get are great. I'm not a fan of the nice, girly, fairy looks that some people go for but I love the spooky outfits-the zombies and vampires and whatnot.

  Let me know in the comments if your going to be dressing up and what your going to be wearing and whether your like halloween or not. I may put up an extra post later this week as I may have a bit of extra time so keep your eyes peeled for that :)
Much love,

Is it just me that loves autumn?! I love getting out all the big jumpers and warm, cosy boots :) 
I love the autumn colours and am definitely incorporating them into my style and my make-up. Dark, berry lips and jeans. Mmmm... I love it! :)

I think that autumn has to be my favourite season. I love being able to wrap up warm and get all cosy, lots of time inside with the heating on, reading a book with a mug of hot chocolate. One of my favourite things to do in autumn. Comment below and let me know what your favourite thing about Autumn is. Also, if you have any blog posts that you want me to do leave them below as well.
Much love,

I decided to stop otherwise this post would be far too long so these are just some of the quotes that I like. So, I hope you enjoyed this and I'll be back again next week :)
Much love,

The Beauty Blogger Tag!

So, I thought that I'd do the Beauty Blogger tag today. Sorry for all of these tag kind of posts recently, it's just that I haven't really been trying any products or anything to review for you but I'm sure that they'll be one soon! Anyway, here we go:

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally kinda wavy if I let it air dry but if I blow dry it, it goes kinda straightish!
2. What is your natural hair colour?
My natural hair colour is blonde. Although it keeps getting darker! :(
3. Do you die it or do you go to a salon?
I don't dye my hair and I never have done!
4. How often do you wash your hair?
Generally everyday because otherwise my hair gets quite greasy.
5. Do you wear the same hairstyle everyday or do you change it up?
I tend to just wear my hair naturally down but I do sometimes wear it up in a messy bun depending on what I'm doing. I can't really do all that much with my hair because I have a fringe and its not all that long!
6.  Do you do your own nails or do you go to a salon?
I don't tend to do my nails all that often because I don't have time and we're not allowed to wear nail polish to school. But wen I do, I do it myself and then will sometimes, very rarely, go to a salon.
7. How often do you change your nail polish?
When I paint them, probably every 5ish days depending on the colour and how chipped it is!
8. Do you always wear nail polish on your toes?
I do most of the time unless I'm feeling really lazy or haven't had time.
9. How long does it take you to put your make-up on?
For school, 5 minutes and otherwise about 10-15 minutes unless I'm going out at night or going somewhere special and then it'll take me about 30 minutes!
10. What do you do first, your face or your eyes?
I do my face, then my eyes and then powder my face to set it all afterwards.
11. Do you collect make-up or just buy it when you need it?
A bit of both really because I only buy like face things when I need to but anything else I just tend to buy if I really like it.
12. How often do you wear false lashes?
Never! I've actually never worn them although I'm sure that I will do soon.
13. Do you wear a full face of make-up everyday?
Probably not what everyone would class as a full face of make-up but for me I do if I'm going anywhere other than like the supermarket.
14. Do you wear make-up just around the house?
Nope because I think its good to give your skin a rest.
15. Will you leave the house without make-up on?
Yes but not all that often and only when I'm just like popping to the shop or something.
16. How many high end products do you have?
I don't really have any because I usually don't really usually have enough money but I have got quite a bit of money at the minute so I might treat myself :)
17. How often do you wash your make-up brushes?
I know this is really bad! But, probably only about once a month! I know you should wash them more often and I do try to but I just never seem to have time and mine seem to take forever to dry!
18. Do you plan what you are going to wear the next day or when your getting dressed?
Probably when I'm getting dressed although I do usually already have an idea of what I'm going to wear.
19. How often do you change your handbag?
Not very often unless I just like want a smaller bag for something as I usually use one for ages before I change it!
20. What time do you usually get up and go to sleep?
6:00 for school and about 7:00 at a weekend because I've always woken up early. And then usually about 9:30 or sometimes 10:00 at a weekend.
21. How often and when do you work out?
I don't really tend to work out at all! The only proper exercise I ever really do is in P.E lessons once a week.
22. Left or right-handed?
23. How tall are you?
About 5'5 and a half I think.
24. Do you speak a foreign language?
Not fluently but I am doing French GCSE.
25. How many pets do you have?
3 fish. A bit lame but ya know.
26. How often are you on blogger?
Everyday unless I literally have not a second to spare!
27. Do you read the comments posted on your blog?
Yepp. And I reply to every single one :)
28. Do you keep a list of products to try as you read other blogs?
Most of the time unless I don't have somewhere to write it down at the time.
29. How did you come up with your blog name?
Erm.. Well I've always used the Jemini bit for accounts online because my name's Jemma and I'm a Gemini. And then I just though the x was cute and that the life made sense because it was going to be about me and my life.
30. What sort of camera do you use to take your photos?
I haven't actually posted any photos on here, all of mine have been Internet pictures because I never remember beforehand and then when I'm writing the post I never have time or its always later at night. But when I do I'll be using the FujiFilm Finepix J20 which is just a small little camera. And its blue! :)
31. How often do you clean your room?
I don't very often because my mum tends to do it because she's got like her cleaning routine and everything.
32. What is your favourite colour?
Probably purple or green. But a darker green.
33. What is your favourite magazine?
Probably Now, Look and maybe Glamour.
34. Do you swear?
Yes. A lot more than I should although I have started swearing less and now I only do it when I'm angry or something.
35. What are you going to do today?
Probably not very much because it's like 17:30 now so probably have tea, go on my iPod a bit and watch catch-up of tv shows and then probably shower and then go on my iPod some more before going to sleep because I'm cool like that.
Anyway, that's today's post done! I know its really long but heyho. I tag all of you lot out there to do this and if you do let me know in the comments! :)
Much love,
