The Autumn Tag

The Autumn Tag

This week I've decided to take a little break from the nail swatches, after all I've worn a different shade each week since April!  Instead I thought now would be the perfect time to do the Autumn Tag which was made by the lovely Georgina.  I also wanted an excuse to use the above picture, isn't it gorgeous?  I was taking my old dog Tia a walk and used the Waterlogue app to create the effect with a picture of the forest we were passing.  Enough rambling, here's the Autumn Tag.

1. Ok we're talking coffee's - what's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero etc?
I've never actually tried any of the Starbucks festive drinks before but I definitely want to try the Gingerbread Latte or Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate this year.  Hot Chocolate is definitely a must though.

2. Accessories - what do you opt for, scarf, boots, gloves?
All the works.  I'm looking forward to breaking out my huge Zara scarf with my trusty New Look Chelsea Boots.  I picked up a pair of the touch screen gloves last year from Primark, no gloves have ever been the same.

3. Music - what's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
My music doesn't really change all that much.  I haven't quite worked out how to add or remove songs from my iPod so I've been listening to New Found Glory's self titled album for about 10 years.

4. Perfume - what's your favourite scent for this time of year?
Nothing too heavy, I mostly wear floral scents like Coach Poppy, Diptyque Olene, Lancome La Vie Est Belle.  If I'm feeling indecisive though I pop on Diptyque Vetyverio, simple but effective.

5. Candles - what scents will you be burning this season?
Where do I begin.. first off I'm loving my Woodwick Fireside Candle, it makes the sound of a crackling fire.. very warm and cosy.  I also have a few Yankee Candles and a little jar of Diptyque Amber Oud I've been saving from last Christmas, so gorgeous.

6. What do you love most about Autumn?
Nothing I like better than putting on cosy jumpers and layering up.  Outside my window is a forest so it's always gorgeous around this time of year when the leaves are changing.

7. Favourite makeup look?
I usually keep the face quite simple with a semi-matte foundation like NARS Sheer Glow, subtle blush and a bold lip.  I'm looking forward to breaking out MAC's Russian Red, it gets so little attention in the warmer months.  I also gave vampy lips a try last year so I'll definitely be sporting my Chantecaille Lip Chic in Heirloom Rose, the sheer formula makes it much easier to wear.

8. What are you looking forward to most in Autumn?
Now that Halloween is over, it's now acceptable to be excited for Christmas.  We've already got our Christmas jumpers sorted and in the process of making some decorations for the tree.  Also, all the food.

That's the Autumn tag! To anyone who made it this far, you're all tagged to do this.
