The Autumn Tag

autumn tag

Recently I was tagged by the lovely Laura of Pale Girl Reviews blog to do the Autumn Tag. As a lovely of Autumn/Winter and all things related - I couldn't wait to get around to answering these questions. I'm sure if you follow me on twitter that you have seen me rant and complain about warm weather and rejoice in the coldness - I really am a winter bird, so this time of the year is my favourite! I won't ramble on any longer in case I end up repeating myself, so let's get into the questions on the tag! 

autumn love. #quotation #inspiration #zappos

For Autumn what's your.... 

1.  Favourite thing about it? (sorry folks, it's gonna have to be things not thing, I can't possible choose one!)
The darker mornings, the darker evenings, the sound of rain in the nighttime against my window, the falling of leaves from all the trees, the bare branches and twigs, the crunchy leaves on the ground, the reds, oranges and browns, the countdown to halloween, the cosy evenings in, the consumption of hot chocolate, the wearing of slippers and cosy pyjamas. 

2.  Favourite drink? 
In Autumn I tend to gravitate to hot beverages, plenty of coffee (that's an all year round given), hot chocolate with whipped cream and a Caramel Latte from Starbucks - I had my first one last week! 

3.  Favourite scent/candle?
I'm a big fan of my yankee candle wax tart holder at the moment, but I don't have any autumn/winter scents for it yet - I'm still on my summer scents - so please throw some suitable recommendations my way! I'm currently eyeing up the 'Winter' scent from The white company after smelling it at an event earlier in the month - it's SO festive and good. 

4.  Best lipstick? 
I tend to stick to subtle shades all year around but for Autumn I often reach for Mac's Shy girl (or my rimmel notting hill nude which is a very good dupe!) I also will be reaching for my baby lips in cherry me as it's a subtle red/dark pink and is a little bit hydrating too for the colder harsh weather. 

5.  Go to moisturiser?  
I tend to go for a thicker moisturiser in the colder weather, at the moment I am loving my Nivea daily essentials regenerating night cream as it's quite an intense moisturiser and I will also reach for face masks a bit more! For the day I will stick to my usual simple or nivea oil free day cream. 

6.  Go to colours for the eyes? 
I'm a neutrals all year round kinda gal - so nothing changes there, I tend to stick to my Urban decay naked palettes, probably more of naked 1 as it's slightly warmer tones. 

7.  Favourite music or band/singer to listen to? 
Does Christmas music count? I've already caught myself humming jingle bells. Other than that - I listen to the same old tunes that I do in the summer - whatever I'm enjoying at the time. 

8.  Favourite outfit to wear (i.e. boots & a scarf combo)?
I love burgundy/wine coloured items, I adore finding the perfect chunky knitted snood and I'm guilty of reaching for warm snuggly ugg boots. And slippers of course! 

9.  Autumn treat?
I suppose it is hot chocolate - with lashings of whipped cream. I like to try little different flavour sachets of the options hot chocolate too - as they are usually only about 40calories and delicious! 

10.  Favourite place to be?
My house. Preferably tucked up in bed, blogging or watching a movie with it pouring down with rain outside and a cuppa by my side. Perfect! 

& that's it for the tag questions. Hopefully by now you've discovered how much I truly love Autumn. Thanks again to Laura for tagging me and here are a few of the fabulous bloggers I would like to tag: 

I also tag any one else reading this who would like to take part too!
