Autumn Tag!

This is a post I've been meaning to do for a while! Finally got round to it now I'm snug in a big jumper, in bed, with candles, waiting for a Chinese to come - perfect Autumn night if you ask me!

Thank you to the absolutely beautiful Amy and Jenny for tagging me in this one! You can read Amy's post here and Jenny's post here - check them out! 

The Autumn Tag

 1. Coffee - What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or any other coffee shop?

Okay well this is awkward... I don't drink hot drinks! I feel like I'm missing out on a whole world but there we go! For any other 'weirdos' that don't drink hot drinks, I saw a hilarious article on Cosmopolitan this week which just sums up everything - 24 struggles you'll only understand if you don't like tea!

 2. Accessories - What do you opt for, scarf, boots or gloves?

Scarf, boots, gloves, ear muffs, hats...everything and anything cute and most importantly cosy! I live in my Uggs on dry days but really need to get a pair of boots - I'm just so fussy with shoes! 

 3. Music - What's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?

I playlist doesn't really change the whole year round but... autumn = Halloween and the second Halloween is over, it's technically Christmas in my eyes so the Christmas songs (and films) are coming out. I don't care how much everyone else around me protests!

4. Perfume - What's your favourite scent for this time of year?

My perfume doesn't really change in Autumn either! I always either go with something sweet or sexy. Anything Victoria's Secret, Calvin Klein Euphoria and Givenchy Very Irresistible are always winners!

5. Candles - What scents will you be burning this season?

I really want to get into burning some lovely Christmassy/Autumnal scents this year. I usually stick to something fresh and lit but this year is time for a change; particularly with our newly decorated cosy bedroom! I know everyone raves about Yankee Candles and I'll probably get a couple of small ones this season but right now I'm loving Busy Bee Candles. They're amazing, last for ages and are such a good price. They even smell lovely when they're not even burning. 

6. What do you love best about Autumn?

My favourite thing to do when the weather starts turning is bring my duvet into the lounge, get all cosy, relax and what films. It's definitely something I can't do when the weather is good because our flat is like a sauna! I also loveeeee my onsie - I literally live in it the second I get back from work! I love the cute winter clothes and wrapping up warm. The best holidays are in Autumn too; Halloween, Bonfire night and then the lead up to Christmas. So many exciting things going on!

7. Favourite make up look?

I wear a smokey eye all year round but I think in Autumn I can get away with it more! My make up needs to be as waterproof as possible because my eyes water like mad in the cold and streaks down my foundation like I've been crying is definitely not a good look! I really want to try some browns in my eye make up this season. I've always avoided it because I think you have to apply the colours in the right way when you have bright blue eyes - I always feel like I look like I'm on drugs when I've tried brown eye shadow before! This season I'll dedicate time some learning how to go a great Autumnal eye, and invest in some decent products to work with! Although it's not summer, I couldn't be without my contouring so that will be staying, I'll usually opt for more of a subtle glow on my foundation too. My skin will probably be dry, tired and craving the sun so I always try to brighten it up in the winter!

8. What are you looking forward to most in the Autumn? 

I think I probably answered most of this in question 6! I'm looking forward to cosy nights, wrapping up warm and getting excited in the lead up to Christmas! It's my favourite, and busiest time of year, and this year I have even more going on with leaving work! It'll be a good season! 

I'd love to nominate the beautiful:

  1. Oh no! I couldn't imagine living without my hot drinks, although you always have lovely smoothies! My favourite eye look is Mac Woodwinked eyeshadow blended out with a liquid liner flick, makes me feel so autumnal :) x

    1. Ooh yeah I've seen Woodwinked on someone's blog, can't remember for the life of me whose it was! Think I need to check it out! xx

  2. I tend to go with a smokey eye year round as well - oh and I need to invest in a onesie with long sleeves and booties. :-)
