I’m pretty sure you’re supposed to actually be tagged by someone in order to do a tag but I saw this tag floating around and thought I’d do it.
Favourite thing about Autumn?
The thing I love most about Autumn is the weather changing. I’m not one for sun or heat so when the weather turns and starts to get cooler I get happier. It means I can stop shaving my legs (too time consuming) and wear boots and scarves. I also like it when it’s dark outside earlier on and you can snuggle up on the sofa with a big mug of something warm.
I don’t really have a favourite drink for Autumn. My favourite drink (non-alcoholic anyway) is coffee. I’m not too bothered whether it’s instant or not but it has to be coffee. My favourite at the moment (and for a good few months) is the Vanilla Coffee from Whittards. I currently have 4 jars of this on a shelf in the kitchen because you never know when you might run out of coffee!!
Hmm, again I don’t really have a favourite scent/candle for autumn. Although for perfume scents I suppose it’s time to retire the Escada Cherries in the Air and bring out the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. For candles, I love Yankee Candle Strawberry no matter what the time of year but if I want something a little more different I love Lily Flame Parma Violet candle. It totally smalls like the sweet.
Whilst I love all things makeup I’m more of a ‘put it on and don’t other again till you’re taking it off’ kind of girl so I’m not one for re-applying lipstick during the day. That said, I do like to leave the house with a nice lippy on. My choice at the moment is any kind of lip crayon. I have several: Bourjois Colour Boost(Red Sunshine), a couple of Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick’s (Foxy Amber and Designer Blossom). I could go on an on. They’re easy to apply, last past my first cuppa at work and don’t leave my lips drier than the sahari.
Go to moisturiser?
I have two moisturisers that I bring out in the autumn/winter months. The first is Avene Redness-Relief moisturiser. This is green in colour but doesn’t leave your skin with a green tint which is good. It’s also got SPF20. The second is Clinique Moisture Surge Intense. This is the night time product that goes with Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. Although, if I’ve been ill and need some extra TLC, I use Oilatum.
Go to colours for the eyes?
To be honest these pretty much don’t change throughout the year. I do what I want, when I want it. I either do pretty neutral or totally full on and the colours depend on what mood I’m in.
Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?
Erm, this is a hard one. My music taste varies from day to day, what I’m doing, what mood I’m in; a lot of different things. I like Linkin Park for motorway driving, Pink for a bit of girl power, chart music for when I want to sing along.
Favourite outfit to wear?
Whether it’s winter or summer I prefer to be dressed down rather than dressed up. So my favourite autumn outfit has to be jeans, boots, a vest, a hoodie and a leather jacket with a massive distressed looking bag. Dressed down chic.
Hmm, an autumn treat. It would have to involve a hot drink. I don’t like hot chocolate so it would have to be coffee of some kind. A caramel latte from Starbucks I think. And homemade carrot cake. Yum.
Favourite place to be?
Whether it’s autumn or spring or any other season, my favourite place to be is in bed. I love being all tucked up and cosy with the cat curled up next to me reading a good book or watching a favourite movie (Labyrinth – David Bowie, yum).
So what do you like about autumn? What would you answer to these questions?
