The Autumn Tag 2014

You know me, I love a good tag and I always do Georgina from Makeup Pixi3's seasonal tags. She always does them as a new season approaches, which tends to get me into the spirit of it!

1.  Ok we're talking coffees - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?

The only coffee I tend to drink is mochas, so I'll move away from the coolers to the hot versions. I love the Christmas variations but I'm not sure what I tried in Autumn last year... I think Starbucks did a salted caramel mocha? That was quite nice.

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

I'll wear boots or my trusty Converse hi-tops. I'll wear jumpers with my lovely, padded gilet from New Look before breaking out the winter coat (I could do with a new one this year) and maybe a scarf too. I love those fingerless gloves with the mitten cover up, especially when they are animal themed and have little woolly ears!

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

There's nothing specific I'll change to when it comes to music; I listen to the radio when driving to and from work, so whatever's in the charts. Otherwise it'll be old favourites that I can listen to again and again.

4.  Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
Most of my perfumes are quite light and floral, but I do have the Paco Rabane Black XS and Caroline Herrera 212 Sexy, both of which are a bit muskier for Autumn. 

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

I've been loving my oil burner recently and burning a lot of Yankee Candle wax tarts. At the moment I'm burning Rainwashed Berry, which I think is a good transitional scent. I will need to go shopping and get some more for Autumn/Winter, so let me know if you have any recommendations! 

6.  What do you love most about Autumn?

I love Autumnal colours, especially burgundy, so I will be digging out my burgundy jeans sometime soon! I also like snuggling up under a blanket with a hot chocolate in the evenings. I don't like it getting darker earlier in the evening and being darker when I wake up though.

7.  Favourite makeup look?

I don't tend to change my makeup look too much through the seasons, but I may switch from cream to powder blusher for a stronger, deeper colour. I should really brave berry lips this Autumn, because it looks gorgeous! I will also be digging out my muted, dark and glittery nail polishes. 

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

At the moment there's nothing specific, but Autumn will lead up to some exciting events, such as my Dad getting married in December. My best friend also recently got engaged so I expect we will be shopping for a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses soon! 

I hope you enjoyed reading this tag! I'd love to hear what you are looking forward to most this Autumn?

  1. I love autumn, my favourite month ! x

  2. I'm not really an Autumn fan when the nights get cold and dark Sasha but I'm doing my best to try to embrace it! I'm going to try berry lips this year - just need to find the right one and there are so many! You know what I'm going to say don't you ... I'll add this to my long list of 'to do' tags! xx

    1. I'm not keen on the darker mornings and evenings either Jenny. Haha yes!! Good plan xx

  3. I love Autumn, and that I can layer up when it's cold and wear deeper makeup shades xx
