Autumn is upon us and I for one am already in full-on cosy mode with the nights closing in earlier each day. There's just something I love about Autumn that I can't explain, maybe it's the magical feeling of Halloween and knowing Christmas is on it's way or just the fact that the lazy person in me loves to hibernation and snuggle under a blanket.
So in love of Autumn I thought I'd complete an Autumnal tag today.
1. Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
Oh how I fail at this question! I'm not a huge hot drinks drinker so I actually get an iced frappuccino from Starbucks... even in winter! I think I will however make an effort to try a hot chocolate from Costa or Starbucks this year though.
2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
I'm all about scarves (well snoods) and boots. I've actually just purchased by first snood and pair of ankle boots of the season and can't wait to wear them with nice dresses and black tights. In fact my autumn accessory would be black tights... if you could call them an accessory - such a staple.
3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
I can't say my music tastes change other than at Christmas time really.
4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I always go back to an old favourite with Calvin Klein Secret Obsession as it's so warming and autumnal to me. But I'd love a new scent this year that's gourmet and yummy.
5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
Currently I have a Yankee Candle Honey & Spice Wax Tart burning which is the best of both summer and autumn. But after trying a Lily Flame candle earlier this year and loving it I will looking to get a few from there, I'm thinking Crushed Almonds and Chocolate Truffle mmmm.
6. What do you love most about Autumn?
Oh I love too many things! I especially love cosying up at night and either blogging, watching TV or reading. I also majorly love warm lunches (in summer I generally stick to smoothies and cold food) which is either a warm sandwich or homemade soup made in my slow cooker - so tasty. I also love the lead up to Halloween as it just feels different and magically and then of course there's the thought of Christmas :)
7. Favourite makeup look?
Come autumn I always love either smokey eyes in either neutrals or purples with a nude lip or a simple cat flick with berry lips. One thing I love about autumnal makeup is searching for new berry lip colours and blushers... though I think my all time favourite blush for autumn with be Rose Gold from Sleek.
8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Strangely it's going on holiday in the sun... which isn't autumn-y at all, but I love relaxing so much, so I'm very much looking forward to that. I'm also looking forward to better programmes on TV - Jamie's Comfort Food and Strictly Come Dancing are at the top of my list.
A big thanks to Georgina (the tag and her Q&A's can be found here) for creating this tag.
The tag is open for anyone to do, so why not do it on your own blog if you have one!
