The Autumn Tag 2016

See comments


Ahh, Autumn I love you so!

Every year I like to do an Autumn tag, just because really! Because it makes me feel extra autumnal, if that can be a thing, and because they seem to be strangely popular - I guess you all love autumn/fall just as much as I do!


Below is an autumn tag I found on a blog here and tweaked slightly, as the last question referred to Thanksgiving and in the UK we sadly don't celebrate it! You can also find the list of questions to copy and paste to your own blog at the bottom of this post.

1. What signifies the start of Autumn for you?
Well I firstly don't need any encouragement other than the 1st of September! It can still feel like summer but I'll be there burning my pumpkin spice candles and browsing plaid scarves on ASOS. However call it cliche but as soon as I see falling leaves I'm declaring autumn! Autumn is all about leaf kicking (with caution!) for me and as soon as I see one golden orange leaf I'm planning Halloween! 

2. What is your favourite Fall scent?
Oh, now this is a tricky question, because I'd like to say pumpkin as it seems very autumnal... but have you ever carved a pumpkin? Or even worst, carved pumpkin a left it for two weeks? It's not a smell you want to know about. So pumpkin as a scent is out, and general spice scents seem a bit too vague. So I'm going to go with anything sweet and baked goods like. My favourite candle brand is Village Candle and my go-to scents I burn come autumn are - Maple Butter, Brownie Delight and Warm Buttered Bread, mmmm.

3. What is your favourite Autumn colour?
I love all the colours but burnt orange for me feels very autumn-like, again probably because I love crisp orange leaves around this time of year. There isn't really a way of incorporating it into my wardrobe as it's not a common shade, however I do have a few scarves in a rust orange shade that I love and feel very autumnal wearing. I also love pinning any golden orange autumn landscape photos on Pinterest. Talking of Pinterest you can follow me (Makeupsavvy) if you like. I post a lot of images of puppies playing in leaves and Photoshop edited sunshine filled autumnal pictures!

4. What is your favourite Fall drink?
I'm unfortunately part of the 1% of the UK population that doesn't like hot drinks. Okay, I drink lattes and the occasional hot chocolate come winter but autumn just doesn't seem cold enough to warrant hot drinks for me and sadly there isn't such thing as spiced berry cordial! I do dabble in seasonal Starbuck drinks but I'm sadly more a fan of the cup design than the actual taste!
 
5. What TV show, new or old, are you looking forward to this Fall?
 Instantly 'Stranger Things' came to mind when I read this question as I've been intentionally putting off watching it as it seems the ideal autumn watch. It seems a bit scary, set in the 80's (not sure why that's anything to do with autumn) and it contains fairy lights (fairy lights are the gateway/transition from Halloween to Christmas FYI). So yes, I will be watching and hopefully enjoying Stranger Things come October. If you are in the UK, I'm also looking forward to Strictly Come Dancing to start soon and a new season of The Fall starts at the end of this month on BBC2, which I cannot wait for! I also love watching Hocus Pocus in the lead up to Halloween. 

6. What is your favourite Fall fashion trend?
If I'm honest I totally ignore current fashion trends and opt for typically autumnal pieces, so my outfit often consists of a plaid/checked shirt, jeans and tan ankle boots. I love finding inspiration on Pinterest and feel you can't go wrong with a chunky scarf over anything as the weather gets cooler. 

7. What is your favourite frugal Autumn activity?
Oh, I do like this question! Now I would love to say going pumpkin picking with one of those sweet little trailers, but sadly I don't live in America so I have to make do with "oooo"-ing as the crates of Pumpkins as you walk into Tesco come mid October. However I would say I love the last week in October in the lead up to Halloween as I often do a few crafts for a family Halloween party, carve a pumpkin (pretty inexpensive) and enjoy the definite change is UK weather, so a few walks to see the changing foliage is a must. 

8. What is your favourite makeup look come autumnal weather?
Day-to-day I enjoy ditching the bronzer and achieving dewy skin with a more bronze/red smokey eye than I normally would do, along with a deep nude lip. But occasionally I'm brave and pull out a deep berry lipstick from my vast and often unloved collection. This doesn't happen often but when I do wear a dark berry lip I feel instantly vampy!
